    I have quite pale skin and dark hair and I was just wondering if you guys think I a pale skinned girl could pull off this playsuit?

    Might wash you out slightly, but considering you have dark hair, should look alright!

    In that colour, no way. I have the same skin and hair as you but there's no way I would choose that. Why would you want to anyway... It's not the most inventive of patterns and colours. Sorry just my opinion.

    I just really like it, and I'm not sure how inventive patterns are supposed to be? What do you mean exactly? what kind of patterns do you like?

    Sorry, I didn't mean to sound like such a *****. It just came out wrong. I mean I just don't think that blue and that white work well together at all and I just kind of don't like the pattern but that's my personal choice... just because I wouldnt wear it, or don't get it, doesn't mean you shouldn't .
    I just think that having the same hair and skin tone as you, I tend to try colours like: nice bold red, a pale pink, a vibrant royal blue or maybe a classic black. . But you're entitled to your own style. Just a bit tired and shouldn't have sounded that harsh lol

    Oh don't worry I didn't think you sounded like a ***** I just didn't know quite what you meant. I'm all for the classic black but I think my wardrobe mow looks like I go to far too many funerals :P I've never been a fan of pink myself but I have a couple of things with pink incorporated. I've always struggled with bright blues and reds as for some reason I just think bright colours don't look flattering on my body.

    I like the pattern on the play suit because it reminds me of china cups :3

    Um some people tell me I'm really pale, then most of the people round here are very tanned :P

    I'm not really skinny no, I'm not fat or anything. Just average, but I already have another playsuit the same style and cut of this which I've been complimented in so I guess it doesn't make me look like a fat whale.

    You're probably quite skinny I haven't seen anyone pull this style off being size 10+. I think this is a really nice playsuit and I can see why it reminds you of those small plates The only reason I wouldn't get it is because of the V neck design

    I'm a size 8, which I think it just normal? (though it varies on brand i suppose) but when you said really skinny I thought you meant like between size 4-6.
    I really like the V neck, I find SOOO many things on the high street now have really high necks which look horrendous on me because not only am I really short so they make me look squashed down but I have quite a large chest so covering it up to the neck makes me look quit plump.

    I never really thought of that, I still find it hard to find clothes I actually like because I'm fussy and indecisive

    Oh I know what you mean it's such a nightmare for me to find clothes that either fit for a start or that I even like!

    I have such limited options as well, any trousers or jeans are just a no because they won't fit, any maxi type dress or skirts are a no :') and I have back acne so the majority of styles of tops or strappy dresses I can't wear
    >.< God damn fashion! Arghh

    The playsuit looks amazing and I think it'd look great on you, I'm not sure what people mean by washed out but I don't think the outfit would do that to you given your hair colour. And since your short it would look even better, it would fit better. Playsuits (short + long) are a nightmare for me, the short ones end up looking like short shorts on me and the long ones usually aren't long enough lol
