For me this would be a "I was doing housework at home, but needed to pop out to the shop to get some milk" look !!!

LetThemEatCake Sat 11-Dec-10 22:43:08

tell me truthfully. Is she chunky?

stillbobbysgirl Sat 11-Dec-10 22:45:34

I think she looks lovely - those shoes are mental (in a good way).

MrToad Sat 11-Dec-10 22:47:03

Those shoes are truely vile shock

RudolphReindeerTuppennyTail Sat 11-Dec-10 22:48:07

I want those mittens.

Daydreaming Sat 11-Dec-10 22:48:13

No, I don't think so - but that photo of her in the H&M fake leather trousers is not incredibly flattering - but it's probably because the angle of the photo is not great....

FaffTastic Sat 11-Dec-10 22:48:35

Actually think she looks great apart from the shoes which I hate (hate marmite aswell so she's right)

LTEC - chunky? If she is chunky then I'm obese.

Daydreaming Sat 11-Dec-10 22:50:02

I am sorry, but I agree that those shoes are really, really ugly... And I do like things that are a bit different, but they just look like ugly slippers !!!!!

BelligerentGhoul Sat 11-Dec-10 22:50:23

Chunky? Good Lord - she is about as chunky as a finger of fudge.

She wears some bloody awful things - can't stand those silly hats and mittens and nasty fake fur coats.

I do like all the grey basic t-shits she has though and skinny black trousers with stripey tops. Love that big bib necklace she wears with plain tees too.

BelligerentGhoul Sat 11-Dec-10 22:50:41

t-shits? Oh dear!

FaffTastic Sat 11-Dec-10 22:53:28

At first glance, thought those shoes were slippers like my grandad wears. After scrolling down have now realised they are Louboutins. Still vile. Only now they are ££££ of vileness.

Daydreaming Sat 11-Dec-10 22:54:31

Some of her stuff is nice, but as others have noted, not incredibly original...
I have black boots similar to hers, the same grey zara leggings, lots of stripy tops, etc.

FunnysInTheGarden Sat 11-Dec-10 22:55:28

I wish I looked like that when popping out to the shops.....................Loving the red coat and lippy and also loving the shoos........

BelligerentGhoul Sat 11-Dec-10 22:59:49

Yes, the shoes are vile.

AliBellandthe40jingles Sat 11-Dec-10 23:04:01

LTEC - she looks almost anorexic to me, her face and her fingers are sooo thin and bony! Looks horrid.

And as for the clothes - bleugh.

animula Sat 11-Dec-10 23:04:09

I like her look. she has a really nice playful attitude to clothes, which I wish I still had.

LetThemEatCake Sat 11-Dec-10 23:08:21

she's hit and miss with her clothes like everyone I think.

LOL t-shits

FaffTastic Sat 11-Dec-10 23:17:15

DayDreaming - thanks for introducing me to this blog! Will be checking into it now every few days...

OooohWhatIfItHurts Sat 11-Dec-10 23:21:02

I think she's quite well-endowed of nork - you can see this on some of her summer outfits - and this can give the impression of chunkiness unfairly.

Not a chunky girl.

Bizarrely for a stylist she seems not to know how to deal with her boobs and wears quite a few baggy tops which then make her look big generally. Not sure how good her bras are either <Ooooh wonders if WIT girl is hanging a bit too low>.

But, no, I think she has a lovely figure. Would love my body to look like that.

BelligerentGhoul Sat 11-Dec-10 23:21:21

Does anybody know any other good fashion blogs? The others I peep at occasionally are really too young and too quirky for me to seriously use any of their ideas - all vintage dresses and heeled brogues which, whilst lovely, may well be a bit too Miss Marple on somebody who is older and fatter than I used to be!

sansucre Sat 11-Dec-10 23:29:58

When she gets it wrong, it's hideously so.

As Belligerent Ghoul has already said, the fake fur mittens and hats were particularly bad, as is that horrible black fur sleeveless thing she insists on wearing a lot. Actually it was kind of comforting to see that like so many of us, she too can get it wrong!

When she sticks to the classics, she looks lovely but lately, it's all been a bit too try hard and all over the place. I thought her ode to the 70s with the MiH flares and Lanvin for H&M was a low-point, and her recent sample sale Louboutin purchases were revolting, but, each to their own, she's obviously very happy with her choices!

I love her polka dot Joseph dress but I have it too
(We have a few items of clothing in common and I'm also a huge fan of belting my parka!)

Btw, I've seen her round Primrose Hill and she's skinny. Not stick insecty but normal.

sansucre Sat 11-Dec-10 23:31:40

Oooh, whoever bought up the bosom thing, I agree, although I think mostly she just needs to go get fitted for a bra that actually fits her properly!

HollyBollyBooBoo Sun 12-Dec-10 00:59:12

Her boobs are so odd, they are right in the middle of her torso in some shots, surely boobs are normally more two thirds up from your waist?

FaffTastic Sun 12-Dec-10 01:10:30

Jesus, never noticed her boobs - must go and have another look now
