It's Remus' list time again!

(68 Posts)

Okay. So this is what I want -

narrow legged black trousers, maybe 7 eights: not polyester / not designed for giants / not dry clean only

a cream, latte colour or v pale grey silk top with sleeves and some pretty detailing (could have a print providing it is tiny) but not cleavage revealing and not pussy bow

nice tights to wear with pencil skirts and heels

a deep burgundy scarf with a quirky black print but not leopard or skulls

a dress: waisted, mini-ish as in above the knee, cotton or cotton mix or silk, sleeves or no sleeves but loose enough to wear a t-shirt under. Don't care what colour but I want a nice print and I want to wear it either with biker boots or with tan heeled ankle boots and black or grey opaques

a black silk printed loose top to wear with skinnies

That'll do for now, thanks! smile

Oh and a jumper.

That isn't acrylic and is grey or grey/black or maybe striped. Long-ish but not too oversized and not too fitted. Or it could be red and/or navy. I'm thinking a bit like a cricket jumper.

Oooh! Fab! List time!

Will await updates on your purchases, esp grey silk top and the dress.

Don't just get excited - give me some links! wink

I've been looking at this grey silk top since it was reduced.

I don't need it though.

<rolls up sleeves>

Right. Let's do this.


Cotton not silk- Too printy?

Cotton again

Pleat front

Deer print

Off brief but I love it

Ruffle front



Jaeger again

And again


I did look in other shops, honest

Wrong fabric?


Too long?


Too polyester?

Whistles (Ray Twill trousers if link doesn't work)

Thank you. It's pretty but it would make me look huge on top I think. And I want at least 3 quarter sleeves.

Thank you, Tethers. Am off out now but will have a proper browse of all your lovely links later. smile

Lurking - if you're around to check Tethers' links before I'm back, you can tell me which ones I'll like best!

Bargain dress
Pricey but gorgeous top

joliejolie Sat 19-Jan-13 16:17:10

I can see its only done links to the scarf. I'm rubbish at links and will now go eat some biscuits and leave this to the professionals! blush

tethersend Sat 19-Jan-13 16:19:15

Dress again

tethersend Sat 19-Jan-13 16:19:40

Be back later when you can tell me it's all shit grin

joliejolie Sat 19-Jan-13 16:20:29

This dress IS a bargain though, if you're a 10. And yes, I checked the link.

tethersend Sat 19-Jan-13 16:34:20

£720?! Not my idea of a bargain, jolie wink

tethersend Sat 19-Jan-13 16:34:50

It is lovely though.

But out of stock now.

joliejolie Sat 19-Jan-13 16:38:19

It's was under £200 when in stock 20 minutes ago!!!!

tethersend Sat 19-Jan-13 16:48:58

How weird.

Was definitely a bargain then... maybe someone saw your link and snaffled the last one!

lurkingaround Sat 19-Jan-13 18:38:25

Gerard Darel grey, I know not pale grey but..

lurkingaround Sat 19-Jan-13 19:14:17

Grrr. Just lost a post.

Not on your brief but nice, n'est ce pas?

Vestiaire Maje dress is nice but not keen on the colour. NW3 burgundy duck dress nice but it looks SHORT!

blue leopard print dress, not sure i like this.

Cream silk with detail

Wool trousers, and no, I haven't shopped anywhere else!!

Y'know, I'll link the page. Some nice things you may not have known you needed. Here <<getting lazy emoticon>>

Matalan blouse with long sleeves is a bargain for silk!

Wow! Thank you all. So many lovely links!

Quite like the cotton not silk too printy thing, surprisingly!

www.jaeger.co.uk/Alexa%20Wool%20Blend%20Stripe%20Jumper/600140D-00100-S,en_GB,pd.html?start=9&cgid=women-knitwear This Jaegar jumper from Tethers' links is good but the neck is too high and it's too expensive. store

This one again from Tethers is good Am going to see if I can see it in store.

I like the cable knit of the KM one but not the high neck.

Love the shape of the 2nd Cos trousers but v suspicious of the fabric.

Whistles trousers are a disaster on me, shape wise.

Don't like the Phase 8 wrap thing - it looks like it's been dragged through a hedge backwards.

Matalan one too shapeless.

Love the duck print - don't think I can justify it though.

Phase 8 tea dress hideous and so is that brown printy kaftan thing.

Don't like the Lanvin even if I did have £720 to spend on a dress.

GD is a lovely colour and I like the studs but the cut is far too severe for me. Ditto the cream.

Leather thing would make me look like a fat Austrian man at an S&M party.

Blue leopard print dress - the shape is perfect but I don't like the print.

Ugh - not doing v well yet, sorry. blush

Need shops I can go to irl please. Am in Birmingham so can do most high street stores, HoF and Selfridges.
