Ooh I want to know too!
I've had a bit of a spending-ban lately, so the only things I've bought are a grey White Company dress that I am v pleased with and a lovely skirt in the Hobbs sale (although I am v aware how suddenly middle-aged both of these make me sound).
Am going to London tomorrow though, so hopefully will come back with something lovely, although our main aim is to buy some jewellery for dd's prom - she wants a big bronze cuff.
Two lovely tops from Zara, one bright orange, one hot pink. Is it colour blocking, when you only wear one bright colour with muted tones, or does it have to be bright with bright? I wear them with navy or cream ( jeans or a skirt ) usually. I really do love them though. Especially the hot pink, with which I wear matching lipstick.
I bought this 3rd one along Hamilton which looks very dull but is in fact lovely to wear and very flattering - I am an apple shape so it's hard to find dresses that work well.
But I seem to be finding more dresses that suit recently which is wonderful - one from Laura Ashley (crikey haven't been in there for years) which I can't find online to share but is grey, v necked and has a bright butterfly print. Also this which again really suits my shape.
I also bought a cream scarf from Asda which I also love, it's got a very small subtle print and a lacy bit too. And some silver daps from French Connection. I've been on holiday so a bit lax with the budgeting!
Quin I wear bright with bright usually, or with one bright accessory like a right chucky necklace. Deffo not with black.
I've bought rolled up navy chino trews from New Look (dull but useful) a uniqlo dress in 2 colours which I LOVE, will link in a mo, and some gold jewellry from Etsy.
Love shopping online! <claps hands>
Dang ,dress not on site anymore, I think I bought them all
these are fab though it isn't really warm enough yet (grrr)
thinking about this has made me realise that everything else I have bought is very dull - pretty but a bit mumsy jersey dress from Kew and this in a dark tealy green from the Brora 'archive' sale which I have 'archived' in practical fashion under my bed for next winter (it IS lovely though)
oh and those boden downtown heels that cod has been banging on about which really are v g
A mid grey jersey fabric knee length White Company dress, that I wear with a cami underneath. A school run dress, if you will (for sunny days like today).
A navy and white cotton floor length sundress, and a black and cream maxi heavy jersey fabric dress. both from Petite Affair. I wear these with little 3/4 sleeve cropped cardis.
Three cardis from Wallis (3/4 sleeve, fine knit, in white, black and tomato red) which I wear with t-shirts from Next (a navy and white narrow horizontal stripe one, and then two loose ones that come in at an eleasticated waist in white and dark purple) and Gap curvy jeans.
A few tunic tops from Petite Affair to go with leggings.
Clarks Santa Rock (I think) sandals.
There's more, but I am hiding from it atm as I haven't received my credit card statement yet and sometimes its better no to face things until you absolutely have to!
And lots of costume jewellery from M&S and Wallis!
I like the mumsy dress aquavit - looks as if it would be very flattering.
I'm so bored with clothes at the moment. Everyone seems to be dressing by numbers these days, and there are so few interesting patterns and prints out there. Everyone knows where you got your clothes too - I love the internet but it has killed off all mystery!
I've got some fab dressing up occasions coming up - Ascot, a grand country wedding, and a media London 'gay marriage' in the next couple of months, yet I can't work up any enthusiasm for hats, frocks or shoes at all.
I haven't really bought many clothes lately - don't need any really and haven't seen anything that's caught my eye.
I've stocked up on Soap & Glory in the ASOS sale, and Boots 3 for 2. Got some Hugo Boss orange perfume, this bag for the beach (even nicer in RL!) some wedges from Schuh, and bought these Red or Dead boots at the weekend.
That's it I think...oh apart from some socks from Next!
Wearing this for the first time today (got it for £64 but I think there's a code to get it for £54), plus Zara navy chinos and long navy vest. Also just ordered [[http://www.usc.co.uk/Lavenham-Classic-Quilted-Jacket/00234540800900,default,pd.html?cgid=200 this quilted jacket which could turn out to be frumpsville but I need something for this crap weather that still looks reasonably smart.
Just cheapo stuff for me!
also a Moda dress that isn't on the website - blue, just below knee, elbow length sleeves, and just v plain but flattering
it IS very flattering kurri - and probably won't be so mumsy when it is no longer so cold that I wear it with leggings and boots and so forth.
i bought some whopping big maternity bras last month....wanna hear about them?
oh, and I bought this Monsoon shrug, only mine is bright pink
Tell me more about those harem pants Aquavit. Hush texted me to say they're flying off the shelves and they do look lovely on the model.
Do you need to be tall, blonde and willowy to pull them off do you suppose? What do you wear with them?
I bought the kite print one on that page, and am v pleased with it - Hobbs seem to not be doing too badly this year - if I'd had a few hundred quid to spare I could have spent it easily in there.
Well I am tall and blonde but not exactly willowy, Somerset. I like them with a fairly fitted top (look best with vest but brrr at the moment). They are very nice: crotch not at all dropped (ie not MC Hammer ish) and lovely soft but substantial very matt jersey. Also they have pockets which is a bit of a bonus.
Ooh lovely thank you. Will give them a go!
OMG hte most OSSOM black 7/8 trousers from gap £35
and form MONSOON ( spit hate hate hate)
a "morocco" top, cant be arsed to link
