1. the trouser suit is coming back in - I mean - do they not knwo anyone with a proper job for which they have to dress smartly?

2. a hair product kept her styled curls in place for TEN DAYS - ERGHH grosss! wash your hair lady!

Ah, no, must be original <snob>
Or Isabel Marant ones as soon as I win the lottery

Love my pistols. Dickers have v thin sole, not practical. Pistols are very sturdy.

I do hate all this wanky 'mum uniform' drivel. It's just clothes really isn't it? I'm willing to bet a lot of childless women are wearing skinny jeans and ankle boots too - its winter, what are we expected to wear? Plus fours and gladiator sandals?

As for trousers suits, I work in a very professional environment and I haven't seen any make an appearance. Not even hideous purple and orange Prada ones.

If I wore suits at work, I'd wear trouser suits.
As it is, it's all smart trousers and tops - anything (demure) goes as long as it's washable grin.

Amber, I cannot justify the Pistols, and Dickers are far too high fashion for me. Good to know they are not practical grin.
I have been monitoring ebay obsessively for well-preserved Pistols... ST Style editors would be appalled!!

Hilarious they think they were ever out

I think our Mo is the column at the back. That's how I see you in my head. I forget what she's bloody called though - you know the one I mean.

god yes the fashion bit is so ridiculous ..or do all you Londoners dress like that.

love the ST style mag , loved the bit about cliches in the home ...phew ! none in mine

mrs mills

she's v sensible lady

Pinot Mon 07-Jan-13 13:53:40

Mrs Mills, that's her! Love it.

DW loves Style but laughs (with envy) at the cost of the clothes - after paying all the essentials including food from the joint account monies, she couldn't even afford one of the expensive (yes, I know it's all comparative) items without bankrupting the account for the month.... We have always been Sunday Times readers but I do wonder what % of the readership regularly buys the calibre of clothes they include in Style...

The style supplement is indeed a hoot & surely not to be taken seriously. I read it on the train & have a good giggle to myself. Mrs Mills' column is long past its sell-by date. But I have to read it every week, I just have to...

compare and contrast with the Guardian Saturday magazine fashion double spread - five models of different ages none of which seem to correspond with mine, all wearing strangely shaped orange ponchos and tweed cigarette pants with gold brogues, staring intensely into the middle distance, as if in a police line-up for someone who's just robbed an Oxfam shop.

What annoys me about the Guardian fashion line up is yeah sure, they're a variety of ages but still all teeny tiny stick thin. What's the challenge/point there?

The 10 day miracle hair product is Show Thermal Protect backed by Tamara Ecclestone, available February, £36. Sunday Times said it was seriously effective. I wo der if it will work on straight hair too?

Nautical. Every spring. Military every autumn.

NEVER. Aviation chic

I think we're due for some Victorian chic , petticoats and cotton embroidered blouses and nighties
