Top - need Opinions

SWF alert...haha
I tried on this top today and it actually looked cute. It's kinda funky - the ruffles aren't nearly as bad in person, but it's def. different than what i normally wear.

I want to pare this with NYD Dojo's or MLB Sigs tomorrow night for a dinner out with the girls. Is this too much?

For you, no. Nice. Shoulders, on a solid to petite ratio?

no, actually I have pretty broad shoulders...I might want to rethink it then. It looked cute on (nice neckline) but with the ruffles might make me look like a linebacker.

It depends on the overall scale. Would you post pics?

Your personality definitely carries it to any occasion, however.

ha! my personality? oh my... I don't have the blouse yet. I was just thinking it was the cutest top I tried on today and I might go back and snag it tomorrow morning. I just got a new camera so yes I will post pics.

My brother just said to me...what is that shirt you are looking at? Are you Marie Antoinette? LOL.

I dont know why, but I like it.

You know what I mean. you are hot, you are loud, you can pull that shit off. If some wallflower wore that. She would look awkward. "Personality" is just a lame word I pulled out of my ass.

That is a darling top, but I would post pics of you wearing it if you could. I have broad shoulders too and I would definitely need to make sure I didn't look like a linebacker, as you said lol. It sucks because it seems like all tops these days are made for people with tiny shoulders! Puffy sleeves, puffy shoulders, argh!

^ Yeah. If the ruffles were only along the neckline, it would be perfect. Nice colour for you too.

If you are a busty girl, it might not be a great idea.
IMO of course.

when I want to dress up my jeans, I usually wear one of those tops that go towards the neck.. I'm not quite sure what they're called but it's sorta got like a circular (usually) collar around the neck, and then it's sleeveless, with the cloth going towards the collar thingy.

style like this (just grabbed the first shirt that I found similar like it off revolve haha)


either something styled like that, or something in a silky or chiffon material. haha

I would say you can do it if you have thin arms compared to the rest of you...the ruffles fill you out. I have no shoulders/boobs, but I have really fat arms for my size, so i'd be leery of wearing it myself.

The color would look amazing with MLB dojos, though!

Those sort of tops are no good for busty girls either.
THe bust fills out the top, and the rest drapes down looking like a tent for a big belly...
I know, I have some girls of my own, and I can not make a top styled like that work at all.

^haha agreed about "tent" tops. I need something that provides more "Structure" at the bust/back area (it can flow out from there) otherwise I look preggo.

THe top is from...BEBE! I know I know. But it's only $39 this weekend and I have a $10 off credit. I dont ahve super thin arms, but this top actually flattered the arms. Im going back to see if they have it today.

It's sold out online but they have every size run in every color at the store yesterday.

"+popup_title+"

PC - I actually think this top would look amazing on you. you hae a tiny waist and small shoulders and this would be cute.

Sorry but I don't like it.

It would be a huge PITA to iron and I just think it's a little trashy looking. IMO, of course.

I don't like it. it's a little cheap looking, imo.

I like that top. It looks like it would need to fit properly to look good though. Would like to see it on you

That's a cute top, but I think it'll work on only certain people. We'd have to see it on you.

Also, for that top to work for anyone...everything else must be really plain. No excess accessorizing. Probably like the model, I would wear black for everything else.
