Keeping in with the twists on WAWW threads smile
Bright coral tulip dress (with pockets! Love dresses with pockets!)- can't remember where from.
Black cinch waist belt- TopShop
Black opaques- New Look
Black 3/4 sleeve cardi- Marks and Spencer's
Lots of red lipstick, hair in victory rolls.

One thing that would make it better would be a pair of black vintage pumps, as I'm currently clomping about in DMs grin

Lycra cycling leggings and a lycra top.

Losing 15lbs would make it a whole lot better!

prob should get dressed but frankly, cant be arsed.

Oh dear - I'm wearing virtually the same as yesterday as I'm having a slob day.

Blue skinnies- M&S
Big grey jumper - V old M&S
grey socks - Hobbs
when I popped to the supermarket earlier I had a brown leather biker, tan heeled ankle boots and grey cashmere wrist warmers plus a grey pashmina (and was too warm).

What would improve it? I guess most people would think I'm too grey! Also, putting some make up on other than creme blusher and actually brushing my hair instead of sticking it in a messy ponytail might well help.

A tshirt and my knickers.

Jeans would improve the outfit considerably.

In my defence I have just showered after my run, and am waiting for my legs to dry...

OP you sound nicely dressed. Going anywhere good?/

Thanks Shrimp, but not doing much, just felt a bit low today so trying to cheer myself up grin

A very elderly black satin bra
A green vest
A ten year old lilac Berghaus half-zip fleece
ASDA great bum jeans (don't fit me though so they're anything but)
Hot pink running socks

A bin liner would improve my look no end.

I am on serioius pain meds for my back so - after my shower and hair wash I am in black joggers, dark grey t shirt, red fat face cardigan. Hair is in a french pleat and I am lounging on sofa in a semi horizontal position. Bed is where I should be, but feel guilty as DH is doing everything. sad

JaxTellerIsMyFriend Sun 07-Oct-12 12:28:05

oh, forgot what would help... err nothing would help. I live in fear of someone coming to the front door and having to answer it.

A spinal op with no recovery time would seriously help.

Think onslo from keeping up appearances

Red 3/4 length bottoms
White vest top

CalamityJones Sun 07-Oct-12 12:36:09

Black slouchy jumper/poncho thing from hush
Burgundy skinnies
Black long length vest
Black pistol boots

What would improve it... Clean hair and some make-up probably wouldn't go amiss.

A smile would help no end but I feel distinctly gruff.

Pyjamas and an M&S waterfall cardigan.

Putting some actual proper clothes on would probably improve things a little...

Curtsey Sun 07-Oct-12 12:54:13

Teal skinnies
Black string vest under
Animal print cotton blouse (long sleeved)
Was wearing black patent brogues outside, but took them off inside. Socks are red.
Was wearing DP's brother's hmm peacoat outside, sleeves rolled at wrists

Many things would improve my outfit: nail polish would help, it would also be nice if my hair wasn't still damp from the shower, it would also be nice if my skin wasn't rotten at the moment.

CointreauVersial Sun 07-Oct-12 12:55:10

grin There are some seriously relaxed dress-codes out there today!

I'm no better, still in nightshirt and dressing gown, exhausted after getting up at 10am and cooking fry-up brunch for footballing boys. I might have to have another lie-down before I have the energy to get myself dressed.

What would improve my outfit? A good shower, that's what.

<Sunday slob, and proud of it>

almapudden Sun 07-Oct-12 13:02:03

Currently, nothing.

Clothes would improve my look considerably.

rockinastocking Sun 07-Oct-12 13:02:16

DS's black and red tartan pj bottoms.
A green Pascha t-shirt with cherries on the front.
A red cashmere cardigan.
Black socks.

What would improve it? Erm...getting dressed, I s'pose...

PerryCombover Sun 07-Oct-12 13:02:57

Yoga kit.
A cosmopolitan would make it better

Annunziata Sun 07-Oct-12 13:04:56

Black jeans, a white shirt and a long navy cardigan.

Pascha Sun 07-Oct-12 13:07:56

blue jeans
purple butterfly top
crocheted cardigan
black socks

The one item to make it better would be some new fluffy slippers. My feet are cold!

DizzyHoneyBee Sun 07-Oct-12 13:08:32

scottishmummy Sun 07-Oct-12 13:10:24
