Even with all the beading, I'm just not sure it's worth it?

TapselteerieO Mon 03-Oct-11 09:14:05

No, it isn't.

The cost is relative to your income. But if you don't love it then no imo.

Kerrrist that is awful. Per Una stylee.

It's pretty but not worth 250. Maybe wait for the sale? I can't see the detail very well on my phone, if it's beaded and lovely in rl then i'd probably buy it if it was half price.

I don't like it at all at any price, sorry.

If it were cashmere and contained an entire carat's worth of diamonds in the beading?

Still no.

£250 for a cotton cardi? Jog on, dearie!

<ponders stocking up on £6 Primark ones, puking some beads onto them and flogging them off for a metric shitload of cash>

Looks like something my sister would get from primark.

Agree with nigerslipper, if my 10 yearold DD bought it in Primark or H&M, but on a grown up for real money??????

Not worth the money! No no no!

SingingTunelessly Mon 03-Oct-11 09:54:50

Agree with electra re cost and income but it's nothing special is it? Just sort of meh.

catsareevil Mon 03-Oct-11 09:56:56

Its a horrible thing. The model doesnt even look good in it.

Floggingmolly Mon 03-Oct-11 10:08:08

It's crap. It would still be crap at £2.50.

i saw a lovely, 50s-style beaded cardigan in our local Kew. It's the one in Wandsworth and is the last, I believe, to be converted to "Kew159", or whatever. Consequently, they have most of the old Kew stock from all over the country - very, very marked down.

I think that if you're after a beaded cardigan that might be the place to start looking (give them a call smile). The Kew one was not lined but also not leopard print (which I think might date, actually). I didn't nuy it because, although I love vintage and would happily wear a 50s-style cardi long after the Mad Men ship has sailed, I just thought: "Beading/handwash is not compatible with my lifestyle at the moment."

D'oh. not Wandsworth - Wimbledon. I am a bit mixy-uppy with the "Ws"!

fedupofnamechanging Mon 03-Oct-11 10:19:44

It's horrible. Sorry.

MissVerinder Mon 03-Oct-11 10:37:49

No way!

Pagwatch Mon 03-Oct-11 10:55:52

I love the stealth boasting of the reviewer...'the size 10 yes I am only a size 10 fits well over my 36inch chest see, see, size 10 yet 36 inch boobs and they are bloody perky even though I ticked the 45-55 age bracket
yours, Bet Lych

I have paid that for a cardigan. But cashmere and beautiful beading justified the price a bit.
£250 for tacky cotton? Nah.

Hell no. Talking about 'I saw you coming.'

Last season I paid £90 for a Jaeger silk and cashmere beaded sweater that was roughly a thousand times nicer. AND SILK/CASHMERE. And that had 'only' been about £180 (I think) full price shock

Frizzbonce Mon 03-Oct-11 11:08:51

No no no. It will have to be dry cleaned, or the beading will come off.

And it's short so it won't even keep you warm. You can get nicer (cashmere) cardies at M&S.
