I have this top which i've worn once. Have just never been able to make it 'work'

Any ideas or should I just stick it on ebay??

tulpe Wed 07-Oct-09 23:07:04

Give it to me. I can work it wink

Presuming you have tried skinny jeans and heels? Or very slim fit black trousers?

Also, do you tuck in - as per additional images on NAP or perhaps try with chunky waist belt?

Would also team with boyfriend blazer or layer tee beneath for more casual look.

yes, the one time I wore it was with dark skinnies and sky-high Louboutins. I looked pregnant.

Think it would be too big for you tulpe - US4. I'm a 10 up top, aren't you a teeny tiny 8? envy

LTEC that is gorgeous!

Keep it and wear with lots of marl/grey colours and purple.

Megglevache Wed 07-Oct-09 23:13:23

I am indeed, LTEC. <<Tulpe sulks at thwarting of pink top stealing plan>>

If you looked pregnant when wearing, then definitely try with belt or tucked in.

tucked in with margaret howell type trousers, expensive belt and ankle boots - burberry prorsum.

The top stays wink

Luka - no, I actually wasn't pregnant at the time!! LOL

Megs - it's truly lovely. But maybe would be better with 4 wink

Ebay it.

I find tops like that always make me look pregnant but i'm about a foot shorter than you.

Gorgeous colour though.

traceybath Thu 08-Oct-09 07:26:41

but having spent a large part of the last 5 years pregnant or bf I am paranoid of looking pregnant whem I'm not . . .

Megglevache Thu 08-Oct-09 07:41:19

Those boots are amazing!

If only I could walk in very high heels.

BobtheWoodmouse Thu 08-Oct-09 08:38:40

LTEC grin I can't afford them - but I'm happy to live vicariously should someone else be tempted...

LetThemEatCake Thu 08-Oct-09 18:06:49

god, speaking of living vicariously - how nice am I?? in Gap with my mum today and saw a longline, buttonless cardi in the perfect shade of pink ... £40 down to £20 ... Italian merino wool... and not only did I let her have it, but I even bought it for her!! Hmph. Anyway, clearly it was meant to come with a belt (which was missing, and the loops were broken) so I got it for £16 grin

she's chuffed to bits, bless her. She also bought silver sequin converse today so she's feeling Funky Granny extraordinaire grin

grin Very nice of you - LOL, that is like me - squeeze a few more pounds off for missing belt/broken loop. Good on your mum too for her silver converse. I am very late to the world of converse, bought my first pair ever this year in leather metallic old gold shade and have a mind to buy plain all leather black ones for the winter if I can bear to be prised from my fugly fitflop boots.
