she so isn't a big mn fan you gullible fool!

i shall be boycotting all products on account of their londoncentric ways!

I'm with BO and am boycotting too. Anyone would think London and Paris are the centres of the fashion world.

Besides I thought ethically Gap were no longer cool. Has Stella sold her principles short?

BariatricObama Thu 18-Mar-10 13:53:52

yes, last i heard scunthorpe was the fashion mecca of europe

Thanks for this! But your email address for the Paris events doesn't work!

Bonjour Bonsoir - try it again now.

Whaddyamean, BariatricObama? How is gay Paree londoncentric?

Bonsoir Thu 18-Mar-10 14:27:05

Merci Helen!

I think it is very exciting that you are having international events. Is this a MN first?

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 18-Mar-10 14:46:26

De rien.

S'good, innit? <reveals lack of street French>

We went last October & it was fun (albeit not quite what I expected) but kids are still at school on 29th (& I"m not sure 'attending swanky breakfast' would count as an authorised absence...

Oooh, am in Paris on Monday and Wednesday.

I'd have loved to go to the London one, but it's not practical when you've a school run to do. And I'm with Deepdarkwood on this one - no way will the school let my son out for a breakfast, no matter how posh, and the one thing the school and I both know about my son is that he is honest - quite literally - to a fault and will drop me in it if I try.

Oh well. Have fun, everyone. x

Last time Stella did a Gap collection only about 15 items ever went on sale except to media cronies and ebay racketeers and that was only in London iirc

I hope this collection is better than the last one. It was very dull!

I did buy two pairs of jeans and two tops for my girls but I bought them in the sale at about 20% of the inflated original price.

<<NL frets that this post isn't in the spirit of the thread>>

Woo stella! Wooo Gap!! Wooh really dull fabrics and colours and ....oh forget it!

grin

BariatricObama Thu 18-Mar-10 19:36:50

yes i thought it was rather joyless. zara with pmt

£35 for a pair of baby skinny jeans!!! (I paid £5.99 - am very smug about that)

<<NL resolves to STEP AWAY FROM THE THREAD>>

May apply for the next one, only this time I will not look around wondering who is who, but will stand up and say "I am a mumsnetter" in sparticus style. Then claim that I am helen from mumsnet wink
