All welcome to talk style and beauty

Decameron Thu 21-Mar-13 14:49:17

I love my pistols and skinny jeans, won't be giving them up any time soon.

Have a great holiday, Dauphin.

Hi Santamarianovella.

Hope you are feeling better, Shop.

Those jeans look good, Sleep.

What do you think of these Gigis? Does the pink, gold and zebra work together? I have a certificate for £25 for My-Wardrobe and want to spend it!

Got to collect DD1, back later.

foxysocks Thu 21-Mar-13 14:50:51

i don't love them tbh anni. what about those earrings amber featured on her blog?

shopafrolic Thu 21-Mar-13 15:52:01

Waves again to santamaria
I'm not a huge fan of GiGis Decam not great for my huge feet but I know I'm fairly alone in that! <Whispers> you don't have to spend the voucher if there's nothing you need. <Waits to be kicked off thread>

Off out for a dinner party tonight that can't be avoided although I still feel like death. Hoping to keep warm in Joseph straight leg black trousers, black Whistles tee and AV grey marl blazer with an oversized necklace and LKB black shoe boots with gold toe caps. I'm hoping that some bright red lipstick will detract from just how rubbish I look!!

Am also firmly in the Amber camp and will be wearing skinnies for a long while yet!

Decameron Thu 21-Mar-13 16:15:22

I'm hiding in the kitchen studying the Gigis again, I have my neighbour's kids over and they are all running around like mad things! I don't think I like the colour way as much as the cobalt ones. I'd also like these, at least I could wear them now!

Well the outfit sounds good, Shop, hope you feel better soon and have a good night.

shopafrolic Thu 21-Mar-13 16:19:17

I like those Decameron - can't imagine a time when tanned feet will be on show! Soooo cold!

Annianni Thu 21-Mar-13 17:54:16

I'd get the Ash for now Decameron.
The cobalt gigi's are lovely, nicer than those zebra ones imo.

I think I've seen the zebra with red on my travels and they did look tempting.

Annianni Thu 21-Mar-13 17:55:15

Hope you have a good night Shop, lovely outfit.

Annianni Thu 21-Mar-13 17:57:23

It's ok QueenC, I used to wear yellow when I was young and tanned all the time.
Think a belt is enough for me at the moment though.

MarshaBrady Thu 21-Mar-13 18:41:11

Have had a day out, on trains of all things, to see a friend. Am beat! Very nice to be home.

But I love the Goldsigns and am seriously contemplating.

I am a big fan of skinnies and pistols, although two times for the pistols is probably enough. They are a good height for everyday wear.

Shop I got your pm, how exciting! Looking forward to it smile.

Ok need to catch up properly.

AmberNectarine Thu 21-Mar-13 18:51:35

May have sort of bought a neon yellow parka...

Pseudonymity Thu 21-Mar-13 18:54:11

Leather dungarees Amber grin Some things are best left on the fashion pages aren't they? Lots of things on a photoshoot just would not work in life, no matter who you are, how young you are or what you look like. Hence the popularity of street style blogs etc.

Maybe it's a good question: what things are best left on the fashion pages? Leather dungarees have to be way up there. Also, things like knitted pairs of knickers and vests worn with heels - the whole underwear as outerwear trend that comes round every few years.

Pseudonymity Thu 21-Mar-13 18:55:50

Like neon and parkas, sounds good. Link?

MarshaBrady Thu 21-Mar-13 18:56:09

Spill the neon beans Amber.

Ok Pseud good one, will ponder.

MrsRadicchio Thu 21-Mar-13 19:23:55

I can't keep up either! Decam I also second (third?) buying the ash trainers. I'm not so keen on the Gigi's but just cause I like a more covered up sandal!

Shop, your outfit sounds fab tho sorry to hear you are still under the weather.

Amber, please share, would love to hear what you plan on wearing it with.

Marsha, day out seeing a friend sounds good.

and thanks to wine for atterley discount, bought a whistles Breton tunic I had been stalking for £35. Can't link as on phone.

I love yellow, not sure if I suit it or not tho do have some in my wardrobe. I have pinned a yellow and grey fahri jumper from atterley road but think it may have sold out. Love that colour combination.

Decameron Thu 21-Mar-13 19:27:09

Cool parka, Amber.

The Ash trainers it is.

I like yellow but can only wear a pale yellow.

Going out to a friends and wearing this outfit, well that Novalee top and a very old black wool jacket that is quite similar. Luckily just going to a friend's down the road so won't freeze.

Have good evenings, all!

Decameron Thu 21-Mar-13 19:27:26

Oh and Paige skinny jeans too!

justasecond Thu 21-Mar-13 19:28:56

hi all, be back later but just a quick one to let you know that the other stories yellow bag I got that some of you were interested in is back in stock! only a few left though..

noviceoftheday Thu 21-Mar-13 20:18:16

Evening all! i learned a valuable lesson yesterday. these are for sitting in. They are not for walking or standing around for long periods, two days in a row. Ouch! Ouch!

I wore my new Austin reed dress today. Looked great and wore them with more sensible heelssmile I also got out rarely used Prada black bag and the Armani jacket I bought last month. I hadn't realised at the time, as I was so focused on the look at the front that it has a slight peplum bit so ends at the widest part of my arse. I wouldn't say I have gone off it but its a real shame as its perfect otherwise!

I haven't bought anything for about 10 days ignores yet to be tried on Russell Bromley shoes and oasis dress! I would be allowed to join the frugal thread at this rate!smile

noviceoftheday Thu 21-Mar-13 21:02:23

Didnt someone link a Clarks version of these shoes? Quite like them. They seem less chunky.

Drywhiteplease Thu 21-Mar-13 21:03:01

Ooh novice nice dress....but can't see the heels.

Well, I think I'm not worthy of this thread friend told me ages ago about her addiction to " Real Housewives of Beverly Hills", I scoffed but set series link just to check. Forgot about it until yesterday.....have discovered 19 episodes on the hard drive! In the last 24 hrs I've watched 6!!!!! That's a guilty pleasure......but it's affecting my taste! Ladies I have a BIG party Saturday and am now thinking slutty shoes,body con dress and huge amounts of bling added to piles of slap may be the way to go? Bare legs with open ones heels and severe snow warnings!!!
Have I lost it?

QueenCadbury Thu 21-Mar-13 21:11:34

drywhite step away from the TV.

Ladies, I give it 6 months until we're all pinning leather dungarees onto our wish lists grin

Off to centre parcs again tomorrow so will be pairing Nike sweatpants with hunter wellies for the weekend.(bilblical rain rather than snow thankfully in the SW)

AmberNectarine Thu 21-Mar-13 22:00:27

We're doing CP in April. Last went in December, I wore nice clothes every day and caught pneumonia for Christmas. I think your idea sound better QueenC!

Drywhiteplease Thu 21-Mar-13 22:09:09

Have I missed something while away in Beverley Hills? Dungarees you say QueenC??????????shock

Drywhiteplease Thu 21-Mar-13 22:12:26

What do we think of these? Cheap....but think would do for boyfriend jeans daytime?
