Or bloggers rather, that don't wear trousers?

I like to wear skirts or dresses. Every blog I have looked at features lovely slim girls in skinny jeans and a top. There must be someone out there who doesn't wear trousers, or am I the only one?

PMs have gone out! Thank you so much for showing some interest smile

It's not all fashion related but I do like writing about lovely shopping

I am also a little bit in love with Rural's hair blush.

Like your blog Rural!
Wombat will you PM me your blog? Thanks.

Another blog addict here blush, I eagerly check for latest blog posts etc.
At least they don't cost money. Magazines are ch-ching.

Blogs. The new magazines. Mostly without the stupid ads. I hate those high-end magazine ads. I find them really irritating. Really irritating. Apologies. Ramble over.

TheWombat Wed 03-Oct-12 11:00:51

Thank you! smile. PMs have gone out.
I love browsing blogs too, and I agree with you lurkingaround they are better than magazines though I might be a bit biased.

I'm doing a challenge this October to ONLY wear dresses .. eek 31 days, how will I do?! It's going to be fun, that's for sure

I have a blog and a site but can't post links here so PM me if you want details

Avenue57 Wed 03-Oct-12 13:13:23

oh and can I have a PM from Wombat and Rural with your blog URLs please?

Rural Wed 03-Oct-12 15:04:01

PMs sent. Avenue - can you PM me yours too please?

Hopefully Wed 03-Oct-12 17:13:18

Rural, Wombat etc why don't you jut post link here? I'm sure no one is going to accuse you of advertising after so many requests for links! I bet there are lurkers who won't pm who would like to visit.

Also I have a blog and I want to see yours to compare grin

Rural, can I ask you about Jigsaw sizing? The last time I bought something from there was circa 1986, a pink angora jumper when I was a student (that my mum then put in the washing machine and shrank. Not that I'm holding a grudge or anything). Apart from the skirt/dress rule I am also trying a no black rule, but the dark pink looks lovely. I have been asking for skirts with back or side zips for ages smile. How does it compare with Boden sizing, or Hobbs?

Dollydowser Wed 03-Oct-12 19:57:59

And also, do Jigsaw do any discounts, offers, regular sales? Don't really want to spend that much on a skirt, especially if they do 25% off the following week!

Dollydowser Wed 03-Oct-12 19:59:07

Sorry, not sure how the useless Boden link got in there!

Rural Wed 03-Oct-12 20:05:27

Dolly - I think Jigsaw is fairly true to size these days, they used to be on the generous side IMO but not so much now. Although the shape of that particular skirt is generous to pear shapes, as it is cut larger over the hips.

Hopefully - Dolly has already done the honours with a link. :-)

Rural Wed 03-Oct-12 20:06:25

Dolly - no I have never known Jigsaw to do any discounting (other than sale, obi) - they very occasionally offer free P&P - but that's it!

Dollydowser Wed 03-Oct-12 20:21:24

OK thanks Rural. So in whatever size you take, would it be the same size as Boden, Hobbs and/or White stuff for example?

Rural Wed 03-Oct-12 21:56:34

Dolly - yes I would say so (although haven't shopped in Hobbs for a while).

Dollydowser Thu 04-Oct-12 10:22:56

I have found another blog A million dresses
