Ok I am planning a big shop next week and am in desperate need of some new tops, jeans cardis etc and maybe some brown boots. So far I have got.... wait for it......some fly london molo boots in black in the great sale at office.
Ok I hear you ask what do we have to work with? Well I would rather not spend too much on one particular piece so nothing costing $$$ (sorry dont have a pound sign). I am a size 10 or a small 12 , 5'2"(shorty), I have huge thighs (so no skinny jeans please), dark brown almost black hair, dark eyes and tanned skin, I tend to suit emerald green, purple, and royal blue rather than pastels. I am a SAHM so no need for suits etc.
thenks I have always thought of leggings as a no no with my thighs but maybe with a long enough top...hmmm I think I need to go to town and just try some stuff on. would anyone suggest which shops I should try with decent quality stuff?
Sweater/jumper dresses with leggings and your new boots. There are quite a lot of them on the High St at the moment. Can be casual but with accessories and a blazer thrown over the top could be dressy.
The White Stuff have some lovely things in and I am sure if you put Mumstuff in for the code it is free delivery, however anything over £100 is free delivery anyway. They have lots of nice little dresses in that you could wear with leggings or jeans or thick tights and boots.
I am 5ft nothing and a size 10. I have recently bought a lovely black sweater dress from Monsoon - was about £60, but I have worn it with leggings and boots and with patterned tights and chunky heals.
leo if you're anywhere near a John Lewis they stock white stuff, and fat face which is similar - ff have some nice tunics in at the moment, plus stretch cords (not skinny). Some of their trousers incl the cords come in shorter length too.
