For lots of nice stuff, links and so on.

The H&M skirt is amazing - really heavy jersey. It's the sort of shape I usually avoid but it actually holds my saddlebags in and makes me look rather bootylicious!

libertychick Tue 29-Jan-13 21:00:59

Actually I need a lesson in fabric terminology - it's probably ponte not jersey???? You know what I mean, stretchy and flammable!

I will start playing nice sad

Given that you (*Marsha*) own a beautiful Stella coat, I think you'd have been disappointed by the way the Sessun would have worn. Once you get used to a coat made from good quality wool, it's hard to go back to a lesser made fabric.

Oooh, nice skirt and sweater Liberty

I need this top but it's sold out and I haven't seen it anywhere else in pink. Sigh.

MarshaBrady Tue 29-Jan-13 21:07:41

It's all good fun.

The Sessun was a bit scratchy. I'm glad I didn't get it now.

Yes know what you mean Liberty, I really like it.

MarshaBrady Tue 29-Jan-13 21:09:05

Nice Jolie jolie! What a shame it's sold out.

I do really well in TK Maxx, last year I had Moschino and Westwood skirts and a Calvin Klein wool/cashmere coat for a total of less than £150. persistence is key, I go once or twice every week. The one I go to is particularly designer focused though. They had Louboutins once!

This dress is haunting me. It has turned up in my local charity shop and I love it but at size 12 it is just too big. I'm seriously considering buying it and having it altered, but the leather may complicate things...

Hi Jolie, might be worth a call to Fenwicks Newcastle. They stock Maison Scotch and they may have different stock to Fenwicks online.

Hi Marsha! I can't make up my mind about which Balenciaga - I have wanted it for about 3 years and every time I think about, I go off and get something else grin.

I can't make up my mind between classic town which I like in the green or classic city. I like the classic city in the turquoise or the yellow (curry). I think I have ruled out the Giant as I am petite so sometimes bags can be too big.

I used to love TkMaxx but since having kids, having had the time to really rummage around and get a good deal.

QueenCadbury Tue 29-Jan-13 21:13:36

My goodness you lot move fast. I'd only gone away for a shower, come back and you're on p2 of a new thread grin

sansucre Tue 29-Jan-13 21:13:58

Buy it. A good tailor will be able to alter it with no problem at all.

shopafrolic Tue 29-Jan-13 21:15:00

That dress is lovely Amber. Any chance of you sharing or PMing me your designer focused store name?

libertychick Tue 29-Jan-13 21:15:47

Amber that is a great dress. If you get it in the 12 from your charity shop and it turns out it can't be altered I promise I will buy it from you...

libertychick Tue 29-Jan-13 21:16:27

Damn it! Shop wants it too....

AmberNectarine Tue 29-Jan-13 21:18:26

Putney is the good TK I go to. Also decent are Kingston and Guildford.

shopafrolic Tue 29-Jan-13 21:18:42

[Grin] at Liberty. Haven't know the thread this busy for a long time! Feel like I'm missing some of the insider knowledge on who's who though....

MarshaBrady Tue 29-Jan-13 21:18:57

Amber buy it for sure.

Novice swoon again. Ok. The classic city for me. In Curry. Ah so nice.

shopafrolic Tue 29-Jan-13 21:19:43

Thanks Amber will try Kensington HS when next at hairdressers and then Putney if no good!

libertychick Tue 29-Jan-13 21:20:02

Novice they are both gorgeous but if you want opinions my vote is with classic town.

libertychick Tue 29-Jan-13 21:22:59

Shop I don't know anyone on this thread IRL - I am just being very presumptuous and greedy

Mrsap Tue 29-Jan-13 21:30:57

This is now a v speedy thread indeed. I don't find anything at the high st ken TK max. Cheltenham however is excellent.

noviceoftheday Tue 29-Jan-13 21:34:37

Aargh, see and this is why I can't make up my mind! grin

Hi Shop, I am a newbie on the thread (though not MN). Don't know anyone in real life. Love clothes and love accessories even more!

shopafrolic Tue 29-Jan-13 21:37:57

I always find it so hard to keep track and am never sure if some people have name changed since Vol 1. I don't know any of the posters in RL but they've all helped me enormously to get my fashion confidence back!

MarshaBrady Tue 29-Jan-13 21:39:07

Shop I've met a few, and lovely ultra stylish people they are too, but mostly it's from hanging around s&b so much.

But it's all the same, it doesn't matter. Here just for the gay abandon as it were.

libertychick Tue 29-Jan-13 21:39:11

Well you may to buy both then Novice!
