As you all know I start my new job in a few weeks and I want to look super hot and smart. Can you help me find some bits? I'm sorted for shoes and bags but need dresses, skirts & tops.
I like this but not sure what top would work?
I usually wear pencil skirts but like some of the skater skirts - would kitten heel courts work better with these you think and how short is too short for one?

I was waiting for this post lol. I like that top. Do you suit scoop necks?
07/03/2013 at 10:24
I've not posted a top you nutta. I can wear scoop neck yeah.
Love that skirt - very nice - not sure about the colour but thats just because I dont do red and I find black and red looks tarty.

That's the trouble finding a top to go with, I have it in black already.
07/03/2013 at 10:33
I meant to say skirt, what about a sccop neck black top and black blazer?
07/03/2013 at 10:34
I think that skirts lovely but I don't know what kind of top would work, I think it would have to be a very plain black tight top.
Any of these any god?
I like this but is it too dressy?

The black Peplum dress is a good call, I have about 4 but worn them to death so need another. That other DPs dress is horrible on. Tried it ages ago and it's just all wrong.
I like the animal ponte dress and black top from Next. That could work with the red pencil skirt.

Are you looking for me Kellfi?

I think Hobbs have got some lovely dresses. Bit pricey but could be good investment pieces for your new super job.
I do like that red pencil skirt too. I think it would have to be a black top to go with it.

Love that red skirt Belle, how about a long sleeved see through black blouse type top with it?
07/03/2013 at 12:32
I think the above skater style dresses would be suitable for work.
This skirt is a bit different and you've probably got plenty of black tops to go with it www.oasis-stores.com/.../3440087719
www.riverisland.com/.../Black-and-white-geometric-print-skater-skirt-634167 This skirt is nice which you could wear either with a plain black top or this one www.riverisland.com/.../WhiteBlackSlShirtLeonieSquare-635333
How about something like this top to go with that red skirt? Hard to tell without trying it all on together. www.riverisland.com/.../Black-contrast-bow-long-sleeve-dolly-blouse-636244

Mossy Dress one is nice but I'm unsure on skater dresses on me due to the weird length they are and I find a lot of them have short bodies and don't account for boobs. I do like the look of skater skirts but asked what shoes would go with as again the funny length can be an issue.
I don't like that blouse i can't wear a high neck because of my boobs.
ETA thanks x

Go in and see it in the flesh. Its a shop I always used to dismiss, but instore everything looks so much nicer!

Couldn't you wear that skirt with a black chiffon type shirt tucked in?
07/03/2013 at 19:45
I like this style... But not sure if its top short / casual for work?
