What age and size do you think this would suit and what would you wear it with?

FlightHattendant Tue 25-Aug-09 10:18:13

well I'm not sure whom it would really suit...looks like it might emphasize any kind of non slender bits iyswim smile

I think this one would suit someone our age, might make us look younger too!

and this is lovely. Think they have only got a 10 though sad

Love that mulberry coloured silk dress

Sorry fab I hate the russian top

the black batwingh is boring

I like the dresses but not if big norks

FabBakerGirlIsBack Tue 25-Aug-09 12:01:29

I will bow to superior knowledge and not buy it.

I need longer length tops.

russian top is hideous

Curiousmama Tue 25-Aug-09 12:10:06

Oh I like the russian top. What's your colouring?

FabBakerGirlIsBack Tue 25-Aug-09 12:12:47

I am light brown of hair and pale of face.

Good bum, fantastic boobs, terrible tummy.

Curiousmama Tue 25-Aug-09 12:14:31

Doesn't black drain you a bit then? I need long tops too although not that tall at 5 foot 8 but I have a long torso.

AnyFucker Tue 25-Aug-09 12:15:35

that top looks a bit see-thru, FBGIB

not good if you don't like your tum

I also think it would drain you if you are pale of face

FlightHattendant Tue 25-Aug-09 12:15:54

I need longer tops too!

FabBakerGirlIsBack Tue 25-Aug-09 12:22:42

No idea if it drains me but thinking you are probably right..

AnyFucker Tue 25-Aug-09 12:29:27

this will hide a multitude of sins and will look pretty with dark jeans or black trews

FabBakerGirlIsBack Tue 25-Aug-09 12:51:40

That does look like it would be a potential new top. Thanks

Oh no russian top is very mumsy and dated.Too fussy for this winter!What about a long slim cardigan with a vest underneath

BunnyLebowski Tue 25-Aug-09 13:04:28

Concur that the russian top looks v v unflattering and a wee bit fugly.

That green one that anyfucker linked to is beeyoootiful!

FabBakerGirlIsBack Tue 25-Aug-09 13:09:49

I have got to stop thinking of useful clothes!!

AnyFucker Tue 25-Aug-09 13:34:21

yeh bunny and not too many ££

tulpe Tue 25-Aug-09 13:49:16

on the subject of long tops......H&M have some fab thin-strapped camisoles that are super long (they may well even be bodycon dresses for the extremely young and thin, actually!!). They are £4.99. They had white, pearl grey, cobalt blue and black and finish right at the top of the thigh (I am very long-bodied so may be longer on regular length people!). Definitely layering pieces though rather than wear alone.

I bought the pearl grey to wear beneath a slinky v-neck jumper/jumper dress which I bought from Zara last month. Not only great for an extra layer but supportive enough to smooth over any lumps and bumps too.

i like the russian top fabric wise, though it might cover your bum/bust too much and not really do much for your tum.

like the teal top from Anyfucker, though that length of sleeve i don't wear as it cuts off the arm at an unflattering point (focus on bingo wings) but if you have nice top-arm why not? (i love that colour)

cardigan & vest nice but if FBIB has a good bum why hide her best asset with a long cardie?

i'm always jealous of people with shapely rears, mine has always kept me behind...
