hmmmmm. I've just had a couple of ponchos jumpers from H&M here . But they are called jumpers so therefore are most definitely not ponchos. Nope. Nothing like them

Eyelasher Mon 24-Oct-11 12:54:23

no mexican vibe then till?

Eyelasher Mon 24-Oct-11 12:54:35

ooh they are VERY drama teacher

Tillyscoutsmum Mon 24-Oct-11 12:56:51


fwiw I like the fat face one. The other one is far to reminiscent of something I might have worn as a child in the 70's. In fact, I'm sure there must be a photo of me somewhere wearing something equally hideous similar.

The second one is definitely drama teacher.... The first one not too bad. I think this kind of thing requires a try on and honest appraisal whether better in concept than execution.

Love your turn of phrase

Eyelasher Mon 24-Oct-11 14:30:35

Eyelasher Mon 24-Oct-11 14:30:44

Noooo. Just no. They never really work. Its just extra bulk. And once winter sets in, you cant exactly fling a coat on over one, can you? (unless you lie the hulk look grin)

ggirl Mon 24-Oct-11 16:01:12

I feel I should be wearing a short sleeved knitted tunicy thing as they are frickin everywhere

ujjayi Mon 24-Oct-11 16:14:41

I have a Monsoon cashmere blend poncho from about 8 years ago. It's a proper poncho as opposed to a very loose fit jumper (which is how I view the FF one). I love it but never seem to wear it other than over pjs on very cold evenings.........perhaps i need to revisit it for daywear?
