Missing a 'have' in that sentence. Flipping between this and some work I am doing...

shopafrolic Tue 29-Jan-13 21:46:21

I meant to say earlier it's good to see Hopefully back blogging with her teaser post today!

Liberty, I am so so tempted, but, given my other obsessions (mainly shoes and jewellery!) I couldn't even begin to justify it! Dh not here tonight but I am sure he just sighed with relief grin.

Hello all I've moved from the Breton top thread and wondered whether I could join in?
I bought 2 Bretons today( a red and white stripe and another in black and white as i intend to work monochrome this seasongrin)I was feeling bang on trend with my boyfriend looking for A pointy nude ballet pump without toe cleavage ( fat duck feet).........

Drywhiteplease Tue 29-Jan-13 22:10:17

And btw I bought this today to wear with boyfriends and the pumps (when I find them)

MarshaBrady Tue 29-Jan-13 22:13:45

Hi Drywhite love the top, so pretty. Well done on the Bretons!

Drywhiteplease Tue 29-Jan-13 22:17:39

Completely see through though ESP the back which weirdly is a completely different fabric to the front. Still love it though but hating this new thing in cheaper shops where the detail is on the front and the back is awful.....don't people turn round these days? ( am I getting old.....shudder)

libertychick Tue 29-Jan-13 22:20:21

Welcome drywhite. Top is gorgeous - I must go to River Island more often.

libertychick Tue 29-Jan-13 22:22:52

I have noticed that with several tops lately - sheer backs (which I just assumed was in) and cheap jersey backs - not good for anyone with any backfat or those of us who prefer a more industrial bra strap.

noviceoftheday Tue 29-Jan-13 22:23:26

Very nice Drywhiteplease

shopafrolic Tue 29-Jan-13 22:24:19

Glad you made it Drywhite

Mrsap Tue 29-Jan-13 22:26:05

Finally caught up. Novice, I am tragically corruptible, so pls share?

Hi dry white, I am fairly new to this thread too and find it far more welcoming (and interesting) than one or two otherswinkwink.

I also have a few Bretons. What can I say?

Drywhiteplease Tue 29-Jan-13 22:29:18

Agree Mrsap ..........

shopafrolic Tue 29-Jan-13 22:38:25

Final reductions in Atterley Road sale, spotted a nice basic American Vintage sweatshirt in white size 10 at a bargain price and a breton inspired J Crew top for £15. Night fashionistas!

libertychick Tue 29-Jan-13 22:42:25

That's a bit scary Shop I just came on to post this bargain silk shirt at Atterley Rd. Wrong colour for me unfortunately.

shopafrolic Tue 29-Jan-13 22:43:44

Great minds!

QueenBOObread Tue 29-Jan-13 22:49:40

Drywhite that's a really lovely top. Very Isabel Marant.

I saw this skirt in Agnes B yesterday - so pretty, but I'd never buy it as it wouldn't get enough wear to justify the price tag. And it is polyester! But I am definitely in the market for a monochrome skirt if anyone sees anything of interest.

<Not that I can really complain about polyester given that I'm presently wearing
this which has never met a natural fibre in its life...>

libertychick Tue 29-Jan-13 23:01:29

What about this QueenBOOBread

libertychick Tue 29-Jan-13 23:02:45

smile at the fleece - cosy!

QueenBOObread Tue 29-Jan-13 23:19:52

Ooh close Libertychick but I fear the pleats from the waist would emphasise my less-than-washboard-esque stomach. The print's pretty though. thanks

Mominatrix Wed 30-Jan-13 06:13:54

Love that shirt, Drywhiteplease. I love that style - it reminds me of vicotrian girls' dresses. In fact, I love the style so much that I actually own a victorian girl's dress from 1890 which I actually do occasionally wear. It is essentially that shirt in a dress style.

QueenBOO - love that skirt! I have not been in an Agnes B in over a decade. The whole poly at exorbiitant prices thing used to bother me, then you realize there is cheap poly, and then there is nice poly. Still, it is difficult to mentally pay up the nose for synthetic fibres. What style skirt are you looking for?

MarshaBrady Wed 30-Jan-13 08:58:29

Me either Mominatrix, I used to love it in my twenties. I remember that dark navy with small white dots print. Especially the Floral St store, I do wonder how it's going not much Agnès B chat anymore.

MarshaBrady Wed 30-Jan-13 09:14:57

QueenBoo some monochrome skirts.

DKNY may be a bit reminiscent of those 3D posters.


Too expensive Derek Lam but pretty.

Too girly Anna Sui but good discount.

Proenza Schouler shame it's viscose.

Lovely shirt Liberty.

Annianni Wed 30-Jan-13 11:12:14

My local Tkmaxx does have 7's.... in a size 24, so that'll be a no for me!

No nice red scarves either sad

MarshaBrady Wed 30-Jan-13 11:58:14
