I've bought a long sleeved black layering t shirt from H&M, a black and white Breton also from H&M and an animal print jumper from Whistles which is ---bet lynch i fear or really subtly sexy and stylish...--lying on my bed while I decide if I'll keep it. Bought them all because apart from the Breton ( of which I have about a dozen) I don't have anything like them.

What have you bought recently and why?

Denim skirt from Wierd Fish, because I live in skirts and woolly tights in the winter, my old one was knackered and I'd searched everywhere for the right one.

This sheer top from M&S, because I've been after a white/cream lacy top for ages.

This cardigan from M&S (pink mix), because it looks great with skinny jeans but will also do for work. I sized down to an 8, as it came up quite big.

And a lovely raspberry pink long angora jumper and scarf from TKMaxx. Because my gift voucher was burning a hole in my pocket.

Aigle Lomyland jacket to replace very old Berghaus waterproof. Love the Aigle!
Boden straight leg jeans because I needed new jeans.
Marie Jo bra just to have a new bra having not bought one for about 5 years hmm

permaquandry Sat 13-Oct-12 21:23:54

Patterned jeans - hm
Cream blouse - hm
Patterned jeans - whistles

My wardrobe is confused. I've spent the last 15 yrs buying higher-end high st classics that I could wear year after year but now getting bored of looking un-fashionable. Now want to be trendy but with a decent make, however, do not have the dosh to do both.

Ho hum, I may hibernate for the winter.....

A lace and wool grey dress from Zara for work - needed something warm but smart for a business trip.

A cream lace top from Promod in France (while on said business trip) - so beautiful and only £15 or so...

Ten pairs of pants from fig Why? well, when I went to pay the delivery address they had for me was at a job I left six years ago... And that was the last time I treated myself to new pants blush.

Primark! Not primary

I've a mind to complain to apple!

ChablisLover Sat 13-Oct-12 21:11:21

I bought two Zara a like jackets from primary. One black with a blue and gold detail and pleather collar and the other cream. Bargains at £10 in the sale. Actually got the black for less as there was a pull in it so asked fr further discount and got it

Also a pair of rock port shoes for work. Having diffs with feet and hips at the mo and they are supposed to be comfortable. From amazon. Dh signed up for prime for Xmas and it is fab!

A black cashmere sweater from M&S

maisiebabe I'm a 6-8, so I wear a size 34 in COS or their extra small.
However, you need to try it all on as they have quite a few different fits in stuff. I find their really thick, chunky jumpers terribly boxy on me and don't work with breasts/a small waist. I have a hard time with their shirts too, but their finer gauge knitwear, sweatshirts and a few other bits are great.
They do great jumper dresses too, so it's really worth spending the time trying it all on as you'll soon know on sight if something will work or not.

Just read - thanks for the MW unfortunately it won't let me use it, it's limited to certain subscribers sad was going to get Francis Leon jacket

Chewbecca Sat 13-Oct-12 11:18:13

Oooh, my dress has gone down well grin
Sizing is quite true, if anything a tiny bit generous, not skimpy.
I'm a shortie and it comes to the bottom of my calves which works for me.
Hope it makes you feel fab too!
