Hello all I've moved from the Breton top thread and wondered whether I could join in? I bought 2 Bretons today( a red and white stripe and another in black and white as i intend to work monochrome this season)I was feeling bang on trend with my boyfriend jeans......am looking for A pointy nude ballet pump without toe cleavage ( fat duck feet).........
Completely see through though ESP the back which weirdly is a completely different fabric to the front. Still love it though but hating this new thing in cheaper shops where the detail is on the front and the back is awful.....don't people turn round these days? ( am I getting old.....shudder)
I have noticed that with several tops lately - sheer backs (which I just assumed was in) and cheap jersey backs - not good for anyone with any backfat or those of us who prefer a more industrial bra strap.
Drywhite that's a really lovely top. Very Isabel Marant.
I saw this skirt in Agnes B yesterday - so pretty, but I'd never buy it as it wouldn't get enough wear to justify the price tag. And it is polyester! But I am definitely in the market for a monochrome skirt if anyone sees anything of interest.
<Not that I can really complain about polyester given that I'm presently wearing this which has never met a natural fibre in its life...>
Love that shirt, Drywhiteplease. I love that style - it reminds me of vicotrian girls' dresses. In fact, I love the style so much that I actually own a victorian girl's dress from 1890 which I actually do occasionally wear. It is essentially that shirt in a dress style.
QueenBOO - love that skirt! I have not been in an Agnes B in over a decade. The whole poly at exorbiitant prices thing used to bother me, then you realize there is cheap poly, and then there is nice poly. Still, it is difficult to mentally pay up the nose for synthetic fibres. What style skirt are you looking for?
