Bloody hell you lot - talk about closing a thread early! Whatever happened to taking it to the last gasp? Although I did like your padding posts Dry.
Morning all.
linus I'm wearing your boyfriends today - they feel completely different to mine. Turns out it's because they have no elastane in them. And when I checked the content on the TroyBoys they're only 70% cotton! Never known that in jeans before...... strange. Anyway, am wearing them with my green Whistles quilted sweatshirt and my new Hudson boots.
DH home tomorrow (at the same time as the inlaws arrive). hmm

We should say continuing on from here

Morning :-) I posted right at the end of the last thread so will ask here as well. Does anyone have experience of Lee jeans and their sizing?

shop your sweatshirt sounds nice.

I'm wearing gap boyfriends and an old pj style silk blouse. Huge thunderstorms here so have cancelled all plans and am having hot chocolate with a friend and her new puppy! Hmm on second thoughts changing out of the silk....

Annianni Thu 23-Jan-14 08:50:16

Argh... Why 3 posts?!
I've spoilt the new thread <wail>

Sorry Umlauf, never tried them.
Fab news about your ipad though.

MarshaBrady Thu 23-Jan-14 09:09:54

Morning.

Thanks for new thread Dry.

Umlauf I haven't tried them. You're right it's great to have two pettys. Any puddles and the old ones go on!

shopafrolic Thu 23-Jan-14 09:14:47

I was going to throw out my old Hudsons and then I saw the rain.......
Anni it's like a multiple post smear across the pristine landscape of Vogue grin
No experience of Lee jeans here either - sorry.

MarshaBrady Thu 23-Jan-14 09:17:44

Good to have back up Shop.

Plus I can't see the stain anymore. Although I was like princess and the pea when dying them. It kept reappearing.

MarshaBrady Thu 23-Jan-14 09:23:24

There's a half price plus another 10% off DvF Zarita dress in burgundy size 8. If anyone fancies it. Won't link, can't do pin as out but pm me and I'll send it.

Stokey Thu 23-Jan-14 09:56:13

Thanks for new thread Dry - loving the Lanvin bag you linked to ... maybe if I get a bonus & ignore the fact we're meant to be saving for the extension...

Good to hear your ipad is back Umlauf

Ooh another DvF dress Marsha , just got refund from the two I sent back to Matches and pay day tomorrow - wonder if there is anything in my size

I'm wearing new Phillip Lim skirt - sales bargain which I love for dinner with the girls tonight

Morning!

Crack team of movers are downstairs packing, the cleaners are in new house working their magic, my window cleaners are doing inside and outside house, my nanny is cooking, dh is at work, dcs are at school and nursery and I am mumsnetting.grin bet the lurkers are thinking lazy cow

Annianni Thu 23-Jan-14 10:31:17

Good luck Novice.
I despise moving, it's so stressful!

LinusDKD Thu 23-Jan-14 10:35:20

Morning!

Hope the move goes well novice!

umlauf good news about the ipad!

marsha shame the Zarita is in burgundy otherwise I might be interested.

shop that's what I liked about my Jimmies, the oldfashioned denim feel without any stretch.

My bargain black Paige Verdugo superskinnies have arrived and they are lovely. It was a bit of a struggle to close the button but they fit really well otherwise so I finally have some black jeans again.

LinusDKD Thu 23-Jan-14 10:49:24

Forgot to say that today DS asked me what those stripes between my eyebrows were. hmm

I explained they were wrinkles and when he asked me why I had them I told him it's because I was getting a bit older and having to nag and frown at him on a daily basis

BlairWaldorfLovesShopping Thu 23-Jan-14 10:56:20

Morning!

I started reading Gone Girl last night and was hooked so missed the end of vol 31 grin

Umlauf sorry have never tried Lee jeans, but that's great about your ipad.

Marsha what colour did you dye the boots?

FYI Zarita lovers, it comes up large - I am a large UK10 and bought a US4 which I assume is what they call UK8. Fitted me fine before Xmas (not sure whether it would now...!) They are also quite loose on the arms unless you size down.

My DNKY bargain top from NAP has arrived but won't be able to try on until tonight.

shopafrolic Thu 23-Jan-14 12:42:12

Atterley Road returns process is rubbish. DHL delivered my Ganni jumper back to them on the 17/01. They still haven't confirmed receipt and just told me that they have a backlog and their website says it can take up to 21 days for a refund and I should call back after that time - awful!

MarshaBrady Thu 23-Jan-14 12:55:17

Blair I chose black, as they only had black and brown and I was worried about the non-fashiony element of off the shelf mid-brown! Black is black.

Shop boo for bad returns.

Linus good one.

Novice close!

Decameron Thu 23-Jan-14 13:22:54

Atterley Road returns are pants. My order was delivered to them on 10/01 and I got the same email last week when I asked about my refund. Will avoid next time.

Hope you are feeling better today, Liberty.

Cool boots, Shop.

Good the move is going well, Novice.

shopafrolic Thu 23-Jan-14 14:35:48

Yup Decam shite photography, inaccurate colours and now this refund issue has put me right off using them.

On the plus side - my dresses have arrived!

shopafrolic Thu 23-Jan-14 15:14:07

I've found MY dress!

libertychick Thu 23-Jan-14 15:23:12

Yay, more dresses for Shop
I am feeling better today thanks Decam. Period has finally started. How can such a normal process leave me so wiped out????

I am waiting for a returns confirmation from Atterley Road too. I'm not going to use them again either. Last year in April I did an order one night and then regretted it the next morning (as you do!) so I phoned them less than 12 hours after ordering to cancel it. They said that was fine. 4 weeks later when I was looking at my credit card bill I saw a £230 debit for Atterley Rd and no refund!!!! I rang them up and they said they had forgotton to do it. Took another 2 weeks for the money to come back in - should have learned my lesson then!
