I'm starting to think about Autumn because summer clothes in the UK bore me and we're not going abroad this year. Besides, Autumn is my favourite season!

So, I fancy:

a grey biker jacket;
some really comfortable grey or tan wedges;
a grey silk top (not traditional blouse style: a nod to vintage would be good eg Peter Pan collar or tiny cut out details or something);
a fantastic pair of grey trousers for a short arse.

Anybody fancy inspiring me? smile

Have you seen this link?

Looks quite good if they can make it happen! I'm so sick of feeling depressed in changing rooms!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 16-Jul-11 14:06:09

Gah - nothing? Please hellp with the leather jacket, at least. smile

LorneMower Sat 16-Jul-11 15:35:42

too early

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 16-Jul-11 17:08:26

I know it's too early but I still want them! How about if I promise to wear them in the summer too?

Mint Velvet grey jacket?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 16-Jul-11 17:47:10

Thanks Kitten. Too pale though.

I'm not thinking about autumn clothes until at least October. September is usually really nice weather.

mittenkitten Sat 16-Jul-11 17:51:38

Chinti & Parker grey blouse with Peter Pan collar -- although in cotton.

mittenkitten Sat 16-Jul-11 17:52:50

Or Stella McCartney silk blouse on sale, but in a print not a solid and only in 42.

mittenkitten Sat 16-Jul-11 17:53:40

Yeah, I thought it was more a "stone" than a "mink," but I'm not a web page copywriter so what would I know? grin

Boden have a grey/pewter leather biker jacket in the sale

And a lovely grey blouse

And really nice grey jeans (which I've just added to my basket for £22)

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 16-Jul-11 17:56:35


No to both of those blouses - they are too severely cut and mannish for my hourglass shape. Thanks though.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 16-Jul-11 17:58:32

The Boden jacket has the wrong shaped neckline for what I'm after - I want a proper biker shape like the MV one.

Looking for the blouse now! Thank you.

mittenkitten Sat 16-Jul-11 17:58:57

Okay -- so are you going for sort of a gamine retro biker chick type thing? Just trying to picture these pieces together / an overall look. (Am bored of my own style crisis.)

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 16-Jul-11 18:01:05

Something like that! I love silk with wool, leather, denim or suede.

mittenkitten Sat 16-Jul-11 18:01:24

Topshop? black peter pan collar blouse.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 16-Jul-11 18:01:50

I can't find anything that I like on the Boden site, I'm afraid.

LaurieFairyCake Sat 16-Jul-11 18:02:39

this grey blouse - it keeps going in and out of stock though

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 16-Jul-11 18:03:46

The Topshop one is polyester, so no good. I probably need a lower neck too. You're deffo on the right sort of lines though!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 16-Jul-11 18:04:54

That blouse is v pretty, Laurie - other than the stupid nork-enhancing pockets.

daisythelabradoodle Sat 16-Jul-11 18:06:13

Try shopstyle it's a search engine for clothes and finds it all for you wll save you hours.

LaurieFairyCake Sat 16-Jul-11 18:07:54

I know it has no arms but the grey dandelion version is awfully pretty

LaurieFairyCake Sat 16-Jul-11 18:09:32

Is there any chance you want the worlds most beautiful cardigan in grey? I am waiting for it to get cheaper in the sale as it's madly expensive.

the loveliest cardigan
