I need:

1. A gold jumper, preferably lurex, size 14/16

2. Some wedge/platform black suede ankle boots, not too high on the wedge, more platform IYSWIM, size 8. Must be comfy.

3. A really nice long sleeved blouse with black as the main colour- print/pattern fine.

Budget not top end. In fact, the cheaper the better.

I love this blouse but it's very sheer, could put vest top underneath though?

tethersend Fri 23-Sep-11 12:04:04

I like the sleeves, but not the neck... and it is a bit sheer, you're right.

thanks though.

They have some rather nice gold jumpers in Zara at the moment - not sure if they're lurex but they're a medium-chunky knit and very metallic looking, almost as if they've been painted with gold paint. Haven't been able to find them on the website though I'm afraid. They have a lot of black blouses in at the moment too...

How about these boots? I tried them on the other day - they were quite flattering and v comfy but I don't know if they're the look you were going for?

Oooh, will check out zara, thanks.

Should have said, I don't want lace up boots, sorry- just zip up or chelsea style.

Clarks have a nice wedge boot. Rushing out the door but I am sure it is by Mary what'shername.

Oooh, replies!

Hot Burrito, I really like that jumper... had wanted a more 'goldy' one IYSWIM, but think I may have to get that one too.

Tapsel, that's the style of boot I'm after- prefer zip, but chelsea good too. Unfortunately those ones are a bit too high- I really want more of a platform than a wedge IYSWIM. Although I do like the HoH ones... The KG ones are beautiful, but again, too high; or not enough platform at the front. Nine West ones are not for me.

Thanks for looking smile

Also, is 41 definitely an 8? I ordered 41 shoes from next once and they were a 7 confused

How about this gold jumper?

tethersend Fri 23-Sep-11 20:03:21

Why tethersend, that's perfect!

You are amazing. In fact, I'm pretty sure you're a genius who's not appreciated in your own time.

tethersend Fri 23-Sep-11 20:03:50

Oh, tethersend, you're so kind. And pretty. And clever.

tethersend Fri 23-Sep-11 20:04:04

So are you.

That is a fab jumper tethersend.

I'm feeling irritated because I was scouring the internet yesterday for brown knee length boots and saw some black ankle boots that I think would be perfect, but can't remember which of the zillions of sights they were on!! Unhelpful I know.

tethersend Fri 23-Sep-11 20:30:30

Oooh, I like that blouse... thanks MissB

AWimba, did you at least find brown knee boots?

BikeRunSki Fri 23-Sep-11 20:35:53

Next 41 shoes = 7
Next 42 = 8

Sometimes they do 43 = 9

AWimbaWay Fri 23-Sep-11 20:43:00

These were the boots, not as I remembered, I was sure they had a thicker wedged sole.

I did and didn't, I found some I loved in Russell and Bromley today, but they were £325 shock. So no I haven't found them yet.
