It seems to be all about tops with me these days, but quite honestly, they’re such a tricky item to find that when I stumble upon a little gem, I get positively giddy! So many boxes need to be ticked when trying to conceal psoriasis; sleeve length, colour, fabric … sometimes the list seems endless! However, as I was running through our local shopping centre recently, racing along as fast as my high wedge trainers would allow (late for school collection … plus ca change!) I spied this top hanging inside the door of River Island. Late as I was, I must admit that I did a back-track for a closer look. Bad mother!
Clearly my inner magpie had reared its sparkle-loving head again, for this top certainly has an element of bling although in a more subtle way than the usual sequinned offerings. The online pictures don’t really do it justice as in reality it’s a soft dove-grey shade with an almost faded black etching. The little bling element is actually quite subtle, but is enough to ensure that you don’t have to worry about too much adornment when wearing it.

I think this would be a great addition to any wardrobe. Worn under a black leather jacket with some black skinny jeans in the winter and with white or grey coloured skinnies in the spring and summer, it is a versatile piece to style. It’s smart enough to wear out to dinner, yet casual enough for lunch with the girls. And of course, it ticks every box in the aforementioned list for those who suffer from psoriasis. The price tag in the store was €55. The price online is £40. Now, I’m no mathematician, but methinks someone has got their calculations very wrong on this one. Notwithstanding that fact, do take a look if you happen to be near a River Island store. I even love the name … it’s called the Grey Ditsy Print Sequin Embellished Top. How’s that for a mouthful?

And on that note I must run. There is a birthday being celebrated in our house this weekend and a party to plan … complete with cake pops, ice-cream cake and Mars Bar squares. Heigh ho, ‘tis off to the kitchen I go ...
