Your Pinterest

(68 Posts)

I'm really interested in locating Pinterest fashion/style boards created by people over 30-35. Is this the right place to share? I found two mumsnetter's Pinterests via old threads today and really enjoyed them, so would love to see more!

Can we share?

HolyMackerel Mon 01-Apr-13 17:04:22

ScooseIsLooseOnTheLoopyJuice Mon 01-Apr-13 17:07:00

MarshaBrady Mon 01-Apr-13 17:36:49

Have followed you Toasted.

Here's a random one, feel free to follow.

Marsha, another Marant fan!

MarshaBrady Mon 01-Apr-13 17:40:45

Absolutely!

Allthingspretty Mon 01-Apr-13 17:41:01

One little lady i thinl the necklace you pinned was on sale in topshop a few weeks back.

Mine but I am too old for you.

MarshaBrady Mon 01-Apr-13 17:43:33

And Céline am repinning your lovely stuff grin

MarshaBrady Mon 01-Apr-13 17:45:26

I had this one too. Didn't realise it was APC, would love to find it. Probably a few seasons ago.

Remus no such thing as too old!

Remus, the link doesn't lead anywhere, can you repost it?

Marsha, I think the APC bag was last spring/summer.

I'm 28, but here's mine anyway!

MarshaBrady Mon 01-Apr-13 18:06:36

Thanks Toasted, love the dress too will have a look around.

Not working yet! keep getting a pinterest '404' error, whatever that means..

Hi Teacakes. here is my Pinterest board. Most of the ladies on the vogue thread have boards too.

Ooooh, there's some lovely things on your boards ladies smile

ujjayi Mon 01-Apr-13 18:50:39

Sorry, should have provided a link smile.

SweetieTime Mon 01-Apr-13 18:53:03

Toasted slightly older than 35 but here is mine

Corygal Mon 01-Apr-13 19:10:06

And my essay on style for kids - genuinely nice to which I'm about to add a ladeeze section.

Once Wallace & Gromit is over...

HolyMackerel Mon 01-Apr-13 19:25:08

I love these boards, am following a few more of you now as well, thank you!

Anyone else? <needs more pinterests>

MrsCampbellBlack Mon 01-Apr-13 19:42:28

Oops, I still thought we were on page 1 of this thread - didn't know more posts had landed!

it's great to find new boards to follow. I've always wanted to locate more stuff with an 'over 30' focus, even though age itself isn't the hugest deal. It's fascinating to see what people of a similar age to myself are coveting (I'm 39), if that makes sense!

libertychick Mon 01-Apr-13 20:54:40

I am 39 too and find me here

libertychick Mon 01-Apr-13 21:04:48

And love your boards Toasted smile

Liberty, thankyou, so glad to have found yours too - we seem to have some similar tastes. Do you have a tumblr?

McNally Mon 01-Apr-13 21:33:27

Lovely boards Toasted. I'm now following you. This is me.

Matsikula Mon 01-Apr-13 22:10:57

Hello, I am following some of you now - some gorgeous pictures. I am Larissa Antipova on Pinterest. Hoping following some stylish people will be a better solution than trawling through endless images of mint green cut-off shorts!

QueenCadbury Mon 01-Apr-13 22:19:05

Here's me. I'm 39. I look forward to catching up with everyone else's boards tomorrow.

libertychick Mon 01-Apr-13 22:19:19

Thanks Toasted don't have a tumblr - don't even know what tumblr is - should I investigate or is this something that is going to use up even more of my spare time? grin

Hello, am Purple Flyer on Pinterest.

libertychick, if you like pinterest......here lies another addiction! Here is mine:

dansedelune.tumblr.com/

I've been there a few yrs so have a lot of other tumblrs which I follow (and who follow me), and tend to reblog images which belong to whatever particular aesthetic floats your boat. It isn't just for style, there are millions of tumblr blogs for all manner of topics, but I mostly use mine for fashion related stuff.

If you're not familiar with it, it's basically a network of blogs where people 're-blog' images which inspire them. Or you can upload your own content. Once you start it is difficult to stop! It is different to Pinterest because you can chat with other bloggers, but works in a sort of similar way.

If anyone is interested in Breton tees, I also run a tumblr dedicated to them here:

la-mariniere.tumblr.com/

Thanks for sharing everyone, I think i've added all!

CeeceeBloomingdale Mon 01-Apr-13 22:44:57

www.pinterest.com/loumaxi I'm not very interesting though

QueenCadbury Tue 02-Apr-13 08:24:32

teacakes I still don't really understand what tumblr is (and nor do I want to as I will lose more hours of my lifegrin) but you and your images are gorgeous. Do you have kids? If so how is your house so beautiful??

I agree with QueenC, your images are lovely Teacakes.

OMG no, don't be fooled, I only have a nice living room! The rest of this place needs attention grin
And sadly no, no little ones yet.

Thanks Novicesmile

libertychick Tue 02-Apr-13 21:21:01

Toasted those tumblr links are gorgeous! Thank you for sharing them.
Given your love of the breton can you let me know your favourite brands/best shops for them - I am looking for a new one (or two!).

Ta, Liberty!
I don't seem to suit stripes for some reason, but I do love them. My faves in the past were from Aubin&Wills (sadly closed). Asos carry high quality breton tees by Armor Lux, but not sure if there are any in at moment.....might also sell through Urban Outfitters. Definitely a popular choice, although mine ran a bit short in the body.

I actually like the look of the recent Boden stripe tees but not tried them. I'm a fan of the dip hem!
I have a grey/white one by Toast which is amazing and thick, and hangs better than any other I've owned.

Saint James also another top quality breton brand, and some really decent cotton ones at Jack Wills (without logo) sometimes, too.
I'd avoid high street stores if you want the heavy quality cotton.

Thanks Toasted smile

Pin from me very welcome to follow smile

here I am, I am 40 smile

Gorgeous boards toasted

Fluxedo Wed 03-Apr-13 10:36:54

Here is mine. I'm 31. I've got separate ones for different hair lengths, nails and style. Slightly obsessed...

Here is mine v much in progress but thought it polite to post as I am just about to follow y'all.

Am 35

TBH with you all am struggling - whilst I love the groomed /polished luxe look skinny jeans/ boxy blouse t shirt /nice scarf blazer to look at - it really is not me - I like a bit of print and pattern and vintage nods but without overdoing it . Please point me in the right direction people. I love your boards "remuslupins" but i kinda knew I would !

Oh and I have norks and a bottom and thighs - lots of em

smellylittleorange your link isn't working! Can you try again?

I sometimes struggle too, because many elements of a certain style are obviously not going to suit us all - scarves make me look a bit squat, and when I take them off I suddenly look all elegant once more (ok, less like a flump), so not sure if they even suit me to begin with. I try to wear really narrow, light silk ones so that they don't overwhelm me.

If you like print, go for it. There is no requirement to abstain - if you really prefer the minimal look then maybe keep the patterns restricted to accessories only, or wear a printed top with a sleek blazer/jacket, etc.

As for norks and arse: make the most of these, I have neither! A lot of people complain that the 'polished' look requires a certain boyish body type but I don't agree. The shapes often swamp me and I feel ridiculous. My sister on the other hand (slim but curvy with norks and hips) tried on my old Toast tweed blazer last week and it literally blew my mind how awesome she looked. I had been making it look shit since 2010. Ah but we all want what we don't have!

Sarahh356 Wed 03-Apr-13 12:44:57

I don't have, but I found this random, it's actually a nice one, love the babies, beauty, outfits and people boards!!!
I don't know how to put the link through a word, sorry! sad bit.ly/XPd8FB

HolyMackerel Wed 03-Apr-13 17:13:56

I only have lots of scarves on my board as I get horrible photo-sensitive eczema on my neck in the summer, which I need to cover. I struggle to look stylish wearing one, but hope to look a bit better this year!

hattymattie Wed 03-Apr-13 17:46:04

Don't have pinterest but very much enjoying this.

remus those brown bikers are to die for. smile
