I haven't tried anything on. Not sure about the fabric.
What do you think?

I haven't tried any of it and don't want to, think it's hideous! And I love Gok!

I saw it today. V disappointed. It was in a big store but only a small range. Didn't see anything nice and some of it was just minging.

probably not his target audience then.

I bought the wrap dress, slash neck one and the cheongsam to try. I've kept the wrap and am pleased with it. The others didn't fit me well - I would say I'm between sizes. Thought the rest of it was awful and didn't rate the fabrics. The sheer black shirt looks nice on the internet but cheap and nasty close up. Quality also not good - all the slips were detached from the dresses (apart from slash neck one where it's stitched in) and one of the dresses and one of the slips had holes in the seams. Am now wondering why I'm keeping the wrap confused

I bought and am currently wearing the jodphurs www.sainsburys-tu-clothing.co.uk/Collection/stretch-jodhpur and think they're lovely but not very inspirational.
I also bought the perfect fit jeans in red and black www.sainsburys-tu-clothing.co.uk/Collection/perfect-fit-pant and they are anything but! I should have known better really cos I prefer a high waisted trouser/jean (in a non-mummsy way). However it does say in the description that they are natural waist fit, I would say they are lower than that. Maybe I'm just particularly high waisted. Also wouldn't say there's much stretch in them.
Finally, I bought this long sleeved dress www.sainsburys-tu-clothing.co.uk/Collection/slash-neck-shift-dress but took a risk and got a size 10 (cos there wasn't a 12 there). Seemed really lovely but too tight, but will definitely get the 12 (as long as that fits!)
So in conclusion, 4 items bought, 3 going back but hopefully one for exchange. I agree it's not very exciting but all feels good quality and lots of classic styles.
Can you tell I didn't try before I bought? wink

rc8911 quick question:

Did jodphurs fit true to size?

Ooh god now you're asking mirpuppet. I would say so yes. It's a little difficult for me to say cos have lost a lot of weight over the last 8 months and 'true to size' can be a bit of a contentious issue. But I seem to be fitting a 12 in all the places I've bought from (I'm 5' 6") and the size 12 jodphurs are a good fit. Tight, but not lumpy and bumpy tight. Seem to hold me in at all the right places IYKWIM smile

I bought the jeans in black. The material feels a bit cheap and the zip keeps coming down. Not impressed. Maybe I'm too used to my J-Brands now sad Damn you Mumsnet for turning me into a jeans snob.
