Show me your lovely recent purchases and lets have a truly nice S&B thread.

And I'm throwing caution to the wind as really fancy some very dark indigo skinny bootcuts and a slinky tunic shock So any inspiration on that front would be greatly appreciated.

I think you may have already seen my sparkly jumper. Am now hanging on for the sales!

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 06-Dec-12 17:22:55

I love that jumper. Sales must be soon have had pre-sale stuff from loads of places and even a £10 off £50 Brora thing - have never known discounting like it.

dexter73 Thu 06-Dec-12 17:26:21

We are going up to London on the 28th Dec for a 2 days and a night so will save myself until then. There isn't actually anything I have my eye on at the moment so will just wait and see! Have you got a slinky tunic in mind?

ujjayi Thu 06-Dec-12 17:27:22

I have (hopefully) the non-maternity version of this . It is both sequin and tunic which could count as a double whammy s&b no-no in certain circles wink

madammecholet Thu 06-Dec-12 17:29:03

I think I must be working too hard as i've not bought much recently! Am hankering after this in my xmas stocking though monica vinader bracelet...wink

ujjayi Thu 06-Dec-12 17:29:11

Oh and I agree about the discounts. Even Toast have had mini-sales, discounts etc which I have never seen in the 8 years I have shopped with them.

Dexter that is a fab jumper.

I bought a pair of skinny black coated jeans from DP that would look great with that or the Mango one.

Holding off for the sales now as well but have been tempted by a few flash sales.

dexter73 Thu 06-Dec-12 17:29:36

I love the cowl back on your dress. Hopefully you can score a hat-trick and wear it with mum boots/shoes!!

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 06-Dec-12 17:30:18

Oh that's lovely Ujjayi - I do love sequins. Perfect school-run dress wink

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 06-Dec-12 17:31:16

Yeap you need my pistols - the most expensive mum boots in the world apparently.

ujjayi Thu 06-Dec-12 18:05:24

I don't think I have mum boots. I had my biker boots on when I tried the dress on and I loved that look but bought these for its debut tomorrow evening.....which I guess qualify as mum shoes as they are "comfy"!

Dexter it was the cowl that I loved too plus the fact that it is a-line.

ujjayi Thu 06-Dec-12 18:06:57

madamecholet I received an MV Fiji bracelet in a goodie bag last year at an event we went to.....am hoping for a repeat this year smile they are very simple but very lovely.

CaroleService Thu 06-Dec-12 18:09:29

I reckon that would also be fab worn backwards ujjayi <<gets coat>>

mrscrimbobash Thu 06-Dec-12 18:10:50

nancy dee dress

This is going to go with everything!!!! <evil laugh> I'm so excited.

ujjayi Thu 06-Dec-12 18:16:42

Carole grin. Funnily enough worn that way around it would be similar to an French Coonection cowl front dress last winter!

ujjayi Thu 06-Dec-12 18:19:45

Oops these just arrived . I bought the black dress in a panic as these hadn't arrived.......now, what to do?

ujjayi Thu 06-Dec-12 18:21:42

Mrscrimbobash I keep seeing dresses in that lovely style and thinking how versatile they would be......

dexter73 Thu 06-Dec-12 18:22:19

As this is a nice thread I will just say I prefer the dress wink!!

Going to the states for Christmas & Jan so am holding off hoping for good finds. Typical that I've been seeing lots of stuff I like whilst on a spending ban!

ujjayi Thu 06-Dec-12 18:34:49

Ha ha Dexter.... Beautifully, stylishly and tactfully put grin

Caerlaverock I have similar trousers from H&M and wear with chunky cable knit navy jumper for daytime and navy collarless silk shirt for evening. Is that the kind of thing you were thinking?

Caerlaverock Thu 06-Dec-12 18:36:48

I was thinking gauzy knit but can't find anything suitable. Chunky cable sounds good for day

ujjayi Thu 06-Dec-12 18:42:06

I have seen gauzy knits in Zara, H&M and Monsoon. Just about to start supper but will try and find links later.

Chunky knit was from H&M. It's a wool/synthetic blend but isn't too bad for that - I have a loathing of acrylic.

Caerlaverock Thu 06-Dec-12 18:45:22

Lovely links smile

The navy lace skirt for work I ordered from La Redoute finally arrived. It is lovely though.

I have been wearing my Steve Madden Ash a-likes to death and am awaiting the arrival of www.newlook.com/shop/shoe-gallery/view-all-shoes/light-brown-leather-panel-cocealed-wedge-hi-tops_259185121?icClicked=addToBag&icCategory=cat30007&_requestid=2320037.

I can feel some investment knitwear coming on in the sales.

Oh I love that dress Carole - you just can't beat black lace.

dexter73 Thu 06-Dec-12 19:26:08

Lovely dress Carole - I have a navy dress very similar to yours and I love it. Bet you will get lots of admiring looks on Friday!

Zara have gone a bit mental with the faux leather

ujjayi Thu 06-Dec-12 20:19:28

Caerlaverock like the Zara knit. How about this? perhaps layered with a loose tank or silk camisole beneath?

Caerlaverock Thu 06-Dec-12 20:22:50

Yes that is lovely, like the grey

ujjayi Thu 06-Dec-12 20:24:02

Carole love that MB dress. Tres chic. <<worries own offering is a little Liza MacDonald in comparison blush >>

Krismoose second Zara offering is gorgeous. Very versatile but a strong look as it is.

I just got this for parents christmas party and christmas day.

Loving the Hollister sparkly sweater...

Gosh carolservice that lace dress is gorgeous ....I'm on a black ban at the mo .
mrs CB are you one of the worn out ladies? I love that blog!!!!

Amblin Thu 06-Dec-12 22:36:56

I don't do patterned trousers. I look like kids tv presenter

They remind me of Sloanes circa 87

Amblin Thu 06-Dec-12 22:38:28

Miss behaving I have those new look beauts but in black.

Love.

Jajas Thu 06-Dec-12 22:47:07

Love that Hollister jumper, never looked at their website before as am a good 35 years too old for it but that is luverly and doesn't have their name splashed across the front.

Djembe Thu 06-Dec-12 23:06:10

On a pre-Xmas shopping ban, broken for bargain sparkly boots - they are comfy too smile

MsArsebiscuit Fri 07-Dec-12 07:01:11

Email this morning to say that this bad boy is back in stock, and 5 minutes later it's mine, may well be my Christmas Day dress. www.pinupgirlclothing.com/deadly-dames-film-noir-dress-in-emerald-green-velvet.html

WeAreSix Fri 07-Dec-12 08:42:10

I need something as beautiful as all of the links but made for breast feeding. I don't think such thing exists! hmm

CaroleService Fri 07-Dec-12 20:11:06

Cor Mrs Arse!

The MB black lace dress is jersey and SO COMFY

libertychick Fri 07-Dec-12 20:42:17

I bought this coat after a post from juliaflyte alerted me to the HoF 40% discount.

Wearing it with a black, grey and white animal print scarf from H&M which is in the shops now for £5 - not on website to link - it's great v soft and looks much more expensive and also a Gap wool fedora - also not on website unfortunately.

The whole ensemble looks very fine and dandy if I say so myself smile
