Hi ladies don't have enough time to keep up, but lovely to see lots of old-timers here today!
Portia and Horsewoman I have two Lilly Pulitzer dresses (quite old, from back when I lived in the US) - mint + pink - one of them has a crazy pattern of crayfish and mussels... Absolutely love the laid-back whimsical feel and was sorry to hear of her passing.
Linus Neroli Portofino is an excellent purchase and you have a fine nose, A la nuit is my favorite jasmine and I have smelled a few. DH keeps stealing some of my best bottles too but I don't mind - it's nice to smell lovely things on him. If you are looking for something similar but not exactly the same, this summer's LE Guerlain Aqua Allegoria, Nerolia Bianca is worth sampling. It has a similar classic eau de cologne vibe and won't break the bank. Dior's Escale a Portofino is worth a try too. Oh, and OT, but loved your People Tree dresses! <classic is good>
SMN and Linus, nothing wrong with Tod's <out and proud> - the loafer shape seems quite current actually, I've discovered mine and much prefer them over ballet flats atm. They are also easier to wear than the Prada platform loafer type <seeing quite a few of those around here too>
I've experimented with white jeans and love them - they seem to go with everything in my wardrobe. Finding the right material, shape and exact shade took quite a lot of work but was definitely worth it!
Waves to Marsha - loving your sherbet tones - and sending good charity shopping vibes <insert a covetable potential find here> to Amber (loved your blog post)!
hi frugal! tods flats are having a huge comeback,franca sozzani was wearing them at paris fashion week,and even here, cool boutiques like matches are starting to stock them,they are very comfortable. and i just saw the prada loafers its an acquired taste surely .
marsha, mytheresa stocks a good variety of tods loafers and their sale starts in the first week of june,you might check it out. it seems almost every high end e-shop stars the sale beginning of june except for NAP.
Sounds stunning Hopefully. Mine not so exciting but I felt good. New Paige jeans (I'm in love), grey Whistles sweat, neon yellow GAP belt and grey converse. I've been EBaying like a loon to cover my weekend's shopping bonanza!
Afternoon ladies. I've had a very dull day as my CRPS has been playing up again so I'm in an elasticated waist coral maxi skirt and grey sleeveles t-shirt and a scarf that I'm using as a sling. The oversize primark scarves are perfect for me to use as slings, they look better than the ones I get given at the hospital as well! My apologies if I have tainted the thread by mentioning primark
One I had to look up CRPS as well. So sorry you are feeling unwell.
santa I might have to keep an eye on the Mytheresa sales then. I have heard there is a massive outlet village near Milan so I would love to go there one day.
Amber those Paige boyfriends do look stunning. But at that price I will have to try them on before buying so will have a look if the is a shop that sells them here.
Pickled the macarons were yummy! Thank God I live a 25 min drive away from the shop and finding a parking spot is a hassle otherwise I would buy some every week.
Frugal it is thanks to my lovely MIL that I got into A La Nuit as she wore it first and I loved it on her.
But when I first tried it on me I wasn't convinced so I bought Fleurs d'Oranger instead which I loved instantly. It is such a, for lack of a better word, comforting smell that I wear it when I need a pick me up (even though I usually wear it in winter). I love A La Nuit now as well and wear that in summer.
My mum used to wear Ce Soir ou Jamais by Annick Goutal but I have never found a perfume I liked by her, but is is a while since I tried them.
Will try the Dior and Guerlain ones, thanks for the tip. Oh, and I love my People Tree dresses and DH even complimented me.
Does anyone know any online fabric shops that sell nice fabrics?
one,that sounds painful,hope it gets better,its great that you managed to look stylish,,i love maxi skirts with sleeveless tees,im waiting for it to be warm enough to try it.
hopefully if they are available on other e-shops you might be able to buy them in the sale,NAP rarely have the things i want on sale,but i sometimes find them elsewhere.i could help if you want.
linus i went to foxtown outlet once,its an hour from milan i highly recommend it,but there are several near milan maybe franca could give us tips! the only place i could think of that sell fabrics is liberty.
shop count me in!,i have many things i would like to sell,i want to give ebay a try but read how consuming and a hassle it can be. DH friend ebayed some bags before,but poor thing he was lost whenever someone asked about an item.
