My MIL showed me her latest fashion purchase;

trying not to laugh or mention bib for a 67yr old. Any other M&S/star buys this weekend?

Perhaps she's to attend a Victorian/Edwardian dinner party? Dressed as a man?

I took a bin bag to my knicker drawer recently and chucked anything I'd not be prepared to be seen in in A&E if I get run over by a bus..... I'd not want to be in that position, wearing that faux shirt either.

Especially not for £29!

..... oh dear, I like it! Should I hang my head in shame or be proud of my fashion forward credentials. Obviously it looks naff like that but I think it would work well under other tops. Nearly took a pair of scissors to one of my blouses at the weekend to achieve something similar. <slopes off in shame>

Was just looking at exactly that last night and planning to buy it.

I think it's useful! Give the shirt collar look without all the bulkiness and coming-outiness of a shirt.

Why can't you just wear a blouse underneath instead?

QueenBee - yes, exactly that. Used to own a lovely black top with a false white collar attached. Loved it but how to wash it? Coloured wash/white wash?

Obvs you can wear a blouse but it can spoil the lines of a nicely fitting jumper/dress.

I remember polo neck versions of those from back in the early 80s. I can't believe they've come round again.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it has now sold out shock

Is 'mock' an instruction or a description?
