But her clothes just don't do it for me anymore I thought it was a phase, but it's now ages since I thought "wow! I love that look"... It's all a bit too casual and a tad err messy she just seems to have gone off the boil for me...
Has her style changed? or it's it something wrong with me? Should I check into Boden/Per Una???
I like Kat a lot, she seems a genuinely lovely person and has always been helpful when I've tweeted her with any questions. some of her clothes aren't things I would buy or wear but I think she's doing SUCH a brave thing posting like that regularly. good on her - and the other fashion bloggers - I say.
Only just discovered her I really like her, I have been dragging a few things out of storage to wear again, inspired by her. I don't want to look like her, but wish I did just a little bit and I love her house too I just like seeing how outfits are put together and her love of layering is perfect for British weather.
I agree that Bum has got a bit samey, but I do still like to read it. I've found myself enjoying Pinterest more than going back to the same blogs I was reading three months ago. I still love Wendy et al but its fantasy fashion.
I like 40 Bum's writing style, agree her outfits are a bit samey but luckily my style is quite similar so I still pick up some ideas. I like to visit blogs like Wendy and AP occasionally for an inspiration splurge, but don't enjoy them on a daily basis.
I do like Amber's blog (and writing style), but won't link it for fear of wrist slapping
Mrs CB thanks for the arms tip, have now ordered along with a further 4 items that made their way into my basket! Are you from the worn out blog? If so I am coveting your Zara necklace and fine knitwear! Can anyone send me a link to Amber's blog? i like pinterest alot, can spend hours on there.
I love 40bum precisely BECAUSE of her writing style - its warms and obviously 'her' and honest and enjoyable. She has a lot more money then I but even so is obviously overjoyed by finding a bargain, and I LOVE that she posts pictures from the shop floor and from changing rooms - it makes me feel like I'm there with her (er, but not in a stalkery way!) and because I don't have time to go out hunting and trying things on its lovely to live vicariously through her! More pics from the shop floor! Oooh, I also like it when she posts pics from the promotional material next to 'real life' pics from the shop floor. In short (ha, as if!) I love the depth of her research and her obvious commitment to each post.
I'm a teacher and this post feels a bit like marking a student's work. Two stars and a wish haha!
sorry to resurrect an old thread, but ARGHHH. I want to scream at the awkward, self deprecating, aww shucks, little girl poses!!!DLMB40- stop it!! the hunched, round shoulders/hands on hip or in pockets/sunken chest pose makes you look almost deformed and are driving me potty.
