A north face duvet type.

I love it so much I well up thinking about it.

I cannot justify £220 for it though.

I am very sad.

Link it up, let's have a look...

this one in purple. although only £170 from here.

ZombiesAteYourCervix Thu 20-Oct-11 15:06:45

but they don't do XL and I am.

Come on cervix- what are you, a man or a mouse?

That coat might last you a life time- and if you believe all that 50p a wear shit thats jolly good value

Of course we might all hate it in which case IGNORE

I have a very similar one (old) makes me look like a sausage even though it fits properly.

cyb Thu 20-Oct-11 15:07:51

Think you shoudl get in black

You will tire of purple

Hullygully Thu 20-Oct-11 15:07:55

I'll send you my old duvet and a needle and thread.

ZombiesAteYourCervix Thu 20-Oct-11 15:08:42

black would also do.

it is so beauteous.

i tried it on and it felt magical.

cyb Thu 20-Oct-11 15:09:36

Oh bloody get it

I'm of the thought now that lifes too bloody short

Buy it and forget about the ££

ZombiesAteYourCervix Thu 20-Oct-11 15:11:40

might wait til i get paid next week. then give in. or i could go and try it on again, just to see.......

Hullygully Thu 20-Oct-11 15:11:40

I agree with cyb. Buy it! A meteorite might land on your head tomorrow.

ZombiesAteYourCervix Thu 20-Oct-11 15:13:06

i also need boots.

WhoIsThatMaskedWoman Thu 20-Oct-11 15:14:07

Get a coat from GAP (30% off week again) and a fleece to wear under it....move on.

I'm sure the S&B mob can find you something attractive for 75 quid, and unless you are actually planning to go to the Arctic you do not actually require North Face.

Mind you the bracing tone of that response has made me feel chilly.

cyb Thu 20-Oct-11 15:14:27

Well now you're just being ridiculous

You can't afford boots

Hullygully Thu 20-Oct-11 15:14:57

I need a private plane.

ZombiesAteYourCervix Thu 20-Oct-11 15:15:55

and diamonds. I need diamonds too.

but most of all I need a coat to keep me warm (have chronic coldness) and boots.

Hullygully Thu 20-Oct-11 15:16:48

Oh I've got some spare diamonds you can have.

ZombiesAteYourCervix Thu 20-Oct-11 15:16:59

i was dragged into landmark by lovely rich friend whereupon i fell in love with the duvet coat and also some of those rather nice uggs like biker boot type ones.


Bellavita Thu 20-Oct-11 15:19:44

<<admires new diamond bracelet>!

Yes, agree, you need diamonds grin

For god sake woman, just buy the bloody coat, in black though.

LydiaWickham Thu 20-Oct-11 15:20:53

well, it's not exactly pretty, but it'll keep you warm, and when it snows, fuck pretty, I want to be warm. If you can get cost per wear of anything below £5, I say go for it.

ZombiesAteYourCervix Thu 20-Oct-11 15:22:37

gosh. have discovered i'm not even overdrawn.

might have to take a detour on way to work tomorrow.

TethHearseEnd Thu 20-Oct-11 15:23:51

Would it help if I hated it?

ZombiesAteYourCervix Thu 20-Oct-11 15:25:59

only if you give me an equally warm alternative.

Hullygully Thu 20-Oct-11 15:27:03

I have offered my old duvet <feels rejected>
