Pretty little top from Tesco
This is a size 10 but looking at this picture I think that I should have gone for the next size up.
Well I’ve only been and gone and done it again! I popped Tesco the other day, and usual I automatically took my detour via their clothing dept and found this pretty little white lacy number.
I do have a few nice pieces from Tesco, as to be honest I seem to go there a few days a week and when I spot something it’s all too easy to pop into my trolley.
I do like this pretty little top and initially I bought it to wear at work but now I am not so sure as I think it might look a little fancy for work. The more I look at it the more Victorian or even Bridal think it looks so not so sure I’d feel comfortable but thought I’d give it a go.
Tesco call this top ”F&F Dobby Insert Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse which just makes me think of Harry Potter…
I bought this in a size 10, they have a similar one in a different fabric with a 70’s retro feel. But for some reason that felt much way too tight and they did not have any larger ones left otherwise I would have bought that one too.
It’s a bit see-through for me so a wore it with a camisole which, I think may have spoiled how it fitted and unless you have flesh coloured one it may be visible through the fabric.
There’s some lovely detail on sleeves too.
It’s a lovely top and for £16 it’s quite a bargain. Although I haven’t not washed it yet and I am I little worried that it may go a little grey. My washing skills are pretty poor and no matter what I do, eventually white stuff always goes a little grey and then I cannot wear it… It’s just one of my many quirks.
So ladies what do you think? Is this a little bit victorian or bridal?
PS. I feel I should explain my absence from A little va va voom… I only wish I had an amazing story to tell you all about an adventure that prevented me from posting blogs on here. – But no! It’s just that this blogging is far more time consuming than I ever imagined… I know there are plenty of fulltime workers like me that have a blog and they all find the time to write frequent posts and I applauded you all. What I am trying to say is I have no excuse, I do actually love writing and will endeavour to become a regular blogger. xxx
