"The kind people at...."
(Ie boden gave me a free bag to pimp a hotchpotch shirt"

"Pop of _fucking colour". No one says this in real life. Fück off.

"This looks cute" no. Kittens are cute. You are a woman who wears scarves. Desist.

It could be worse, you know. I remember when people used to write fashion columns including the phrase "What's a girl to do?"

<shudder>

Amber - what is it with the watch?!!! Is Michael Kors a renowned watchmaker?!! I need to know.

I love the picture. "Fashion scarves provide a surprising amount of warmth when dressing for cold weather"
Hmm, wonder if she ever gets to experience cold weather?

"Work it with..."

I'm sorry, you mean knead it like dough? Operate it like a machine? No?

I like MK - I have 3 coats (from TK Maxx) and they are ace. Just wondering about The Watch!

MadBusLady Sun 13-Jan-13 21:08:38

To be fair, Pretzel, she actually does bung a vest on under everything.

Only she calls it a "nude cami".

Oh and I HATE that knock-kneed pigeon-toe "I'm a little girlie" stance they all do.

MadBusLady Sun 13-Jan-13 21:10:55

I'm good at this game. blush

Ditzy. I quite often see something I like the look of, but one mention of the word ditzy has me running for the hills.

dexter I just really like rose gold, and that it's chunky. It's a piece of shit though, has broken twice in a year, but was repaired with no quibbles. Wouldn't buy again.

busyboysmum Sun 13-Jan-13 21:25:44

LOL Madbuslady, that stance is soooo useful. I can bung on any old outfit then before I go out, just check myself in the mirror in the knockneed pigeon toed stance.... tada said outfit is bang on trend!

MK rose gold watch - check
Blog- check

<slopes off guiltily to add a pop of colour to outfit>

Trills Sun 13-Jan-13 21:38:58

What I always wonder is who takes the pictures...

PretzelTime Sun 13-Jan-13 21:39:15

Which one is the pigeon stance?
One silly pose I see all the time is the one where they cross their legs while standing - is that a real life thing?

It's the general detachedness from what is practical in real life, while being a real life blogging person and not a fashion mag, that really annoys me.

DIddled Sun 13-Jan-13 21:43:34

'Capsule wardrobe'- wtf!!!!

DIddled Sun 13-Jan-13 21:44:28

Ah yes monochrome chic- black and white to us normal peeps....

ubik Sun 13-Jan-13 21:48:26

"Shop the Spring/Summer edit"

"The Runway edit"

<mind boggles>

ubik Sun 13-Jan-13 21:49:47

Oh and
"Shop the campaign,"

(That was you French Connection, stop trying to hide at the back there...)

PretzelTime Sun 13-Jan-13 21:50:13

Whats an edit? A collection?

lurkingaround Sun 13-Jan-13 21:50:37

Ooh, or when they "channel" a look!! Grr. You mean copy??

Awks Sun 13-Jan-13 21:52:53

My fave is "homage to" ie blatant rip off

Awks Sun 13-Jan-13 21:54:15

And ombre. It's fucking tie dye, that's what it is.

Chugchug Sun 13-Jan-13 21:55:00

trills it's usually their other halves or sisters. I take pictures with my camera timer or on phone in mirror, I could never stand out in public posing like that. Although my favourite blogs do feature that kind of photo weirdly.
