Looks like she's wearing a pinny over her little black dress.

If they took the 'ard' from the 'foulard' they would be describing it correctly.

I love playing Per Una! That one's been on here before, but it's so gobsmackingly wrong it's always worth pointing at and laughing.

Emo76 Sat 15-Oct-11 21:21:41

oh no , apologies for the Per Una double spot faux pas! Still I am genuinely staggered at the range of horrors on offer there, season after season. Who on earth buys it?

paulapantsdown Sat 15-Oct-11 21:39:40

it look like a large swimsuit worn over a jumper

paulapantsdown Sat 15-Oct-11 21:43:05

this is sliimming isn't it?

FoofFighters Sat 15-Oct-11 21:43:10

Ooh Speziale is truly vile. How I Love the this big floppy gem. Behold, the fanjo-flap cardi

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 15-Oct-11 21:49:44

You know what? I have a fear of the day that I will like something on the specials threads. So far I'm safe though grin

FoofFighters Sat 15-Oct-11 21:56:46

oh paula missed your post! blush

OTheHugeWerewolef Sat 15-Oct-11 21:58:58

Cos I've always wanted to look like a Dulux Dog with a rapper haircut

OTheHugeWerewolef Sat 15-Oct-11 22:01:19

The floral applique detail 'makes it extra stylish'. Discuss

Emo76 Sat 15-Oct-11 22:01:47

A "casual single breasted coat" . ah. that's where I've been going wrong then on Fridays at work.

moondog Sat 15-Oct-11 22:04:01

These have me wheezing in manner of arthritic spaniel.
I wonder if i could pit in an FOI request to M&S as to purchasing demographic?

Clinically insane I would imagine.
Perhaps it is some weird tax avoidance scam?

Panzee Sat 15-Oct-11 22:16:46

Fly my pretties

Emo76 Sat 15-Oct-11 22:17:52

"a feminine shrug" opposed to a masculine one?

FoofFighters Sat 15-Oct-11 22:18:04

oh god that flower applique dogtooth skirt shock

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it's a bobbled cardi-tux!

FoofFighters Sat 15-Oct-11 22:19:41

The key to tasteful studded sequinned wear is less is more

BattyDevineIntervention Sat 15-Oct-11 22:25:54

Is that Per Una model really, really cheap?

No. She was in fact quite expensive. Because she knew she would never work again

wailedfig Sat 15-Oct-11 22:38:43

I know it's stating the bleeding obvious, but it never fails to amaze me that those clothes go through multiple stages - the design, the approval, the samples, the production - and no one at any point says, hmm, that's really quite foul. In fact, presumably there are worse designs that don't actually make it.
