I want to buy the short kew skirt with a pleat in the front in damson.

(I'm sorry I can't do links my computer says no.)

i want to get one of their V neck jumpers and tanks to go with it, but which colours?

I also have a beige gap skirt already, very similiar in style to the Kew one, and want a jumper to go with this, what colour to go for??

I'm being very dithery today, please help.

Waht colour is teal? I thought it was greeny sort of blue, but it looks difrent on the kew website.

Also thinking of getting the new cotton scoop neck dress on Kew, if anyone can be arsed to look at that and give an opinion.

Yes, teal is a sort of greenish blue, like a dark turquoise IYSWIM. I have a teal Kew top from a few years ago and that's the colour it is, although I haven't seen the current season's stuff in RL so can't guarantee their colour descriptions haven't changed.

see I wouldn't call that colour Teal - looks more like green to me. Teal is more turqoise I think....
Hard to tell what it would look like....would think the colour would go with the damson thou'

Actually that truely is a rubbish site, you can hardly see the colours or the detail....

It (sweater) doesn't look very teal on the website, certainly

That looks like dark green rather than teal!

Ok, so whether it's dark green or teal will it go with the damson skirt? If not which colour?

I am awaiting advice to place order. I am incapabale of making decisions myself today.

well dark green will go with damson, but you might need to liven it up with something?...

See this is teal...

ProfessorLaytonIsMyLoveSlave Fri 02-Oct-09 11:33:27

I think it will go with the skirt either way.

Although if your legs are good enough to go with that skirt then no one will be looking at your sweater... envyenvyenvygrin

not the pink clearly - change the option..

Yes BD that is what I think teal is.

My legs are quite good, but I also have big boobs so people will be looking at my sweaterwink.

I should also add: I am short have no waist and fat armsgrin!

Ok, I've ordered the damson skirt and teal jumper and tank and claret dress.

Will wait and see.
