Whilst we were stranded in Sheffield yesterday, I did succumb to a little sales shopping. I bought this vest top.
I absolutely love the colour, but I can’t decide about the frilly business round the bottom. (In fact, what is it with all the frilly flarey business going on with women’s clothes these days? It’s all a bit reminiscent of maternity wear for my liking…) I’m contemplating taking the scissors to it.
Here I am modelling it* with what I consider to be great style and aplomb (ignore my manky shorts, I do not consider this to be an outfit that works, but I’d been attacking the garden all morning.) See, there’s a lot of hemline whoosh going on.
But it occurred to me that because of the way it’s constructed, I could actually chop off the entire wider bottom section without major needlework being needed. I experimented with tucking it up to see, and I think I like it rather better that way.
Honest opinions, please. Am I just deranged? Should I not be allowed out to shop by myself?
