Okay, for the dresses above, I recommend that for Shivan’s dress, you get the one with the appropriate cup size, its not really that too nice if your boobs are hanging out, and for those with sheer, please don’t wear only bras or panties underneath during the day.

For the Pants/ trousers

I love the colourblock outfit from Topshop unique, its being long, I saw that on the runways [looking really nice and sophisticated]

party pants

I guess am loving a lot of things lately but seriously, jogging pants are huge this season and the lady at the middle is killing it with her embellished pants, forgot to get the name of the designer.
