i last got mine on the way to a funeral in about 2002.

do I need a new one? What has changed?
i am toying with light wash. I KNOW
but that shade suits me and the summer clothes I would wear with it. CANNOT do cropped nor really biker

This - is it cropped or not? Is unclear

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 10:14:44

( btw old one was Next - hence this as starting point, was a long journey to funeral)

AmberNectarine Sun 14-Apr-13 10:19:28

No, I think that one is quite long, would definitely be hip length on me though I'm only 5'4. I quite like the wash on that one.

foxysocks Sun 14-Apr-13 10:22:25

i like the wash on that too but it's def not cropped

I need one too. my last one was a baggy levis number from the early 90s, not a good look. I want something cropped/fitted as well. will watch with interest...

I like the wash on that but it looks really long to me. I think more fitted/shorter ones are generally much more flattering - you have to be careful not to veer into this sort of bagginess with the less fitted ones.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 14-Apr-13 11:00:41

Quite like the look of this one

you see, this is the thing, trying to work out HOW old faves have aged, and what the difference is

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 12:58:35

FUNny, Remus, that mango one is just like my denim jacket of misery

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 12:59:19

LIke the warehouse one too.
I might order that and next one and prance like a pony in front of the mirroir

HotCrossBunsForAll Sun 14-Apr-13 13:17:10

DP have a nice one, for £32...I was eyeing it yesterday, it's a nice wash.

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 13:53:18

It is, sold out in all but an 8 though.

I have the current season one from Fat Face and it's nice. Simple, not long although not cropped and a nice denim shade.

OneLittleLady Sun 14-Apr-13 14:08:37

I have a slightly cropped one from Joe Browns. It's a light wash and goes brilliantly with all my summer clothes. Had to be cropped as all the standard length ones were massive on me ( I'm a teeny 5 foot FYI) so cropped was the way forward

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 14:14:45

i DONT want cropped really

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 14-Apr-13 14:15:40

Am trying and failing to imagine a pony in a denim jacket...possibly with gold leggings too? smile

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 14:16:53

i might whinny

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 14-Apr-13 15:00:20

I have this one which is lovely.

Warehouse do nice ones but they don't fit me at all but worth a try.

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 14-Apr-13 15:01:18

Oh the warehouse ones are tiny - I couldn't do a 10 up round my boobs and am generally an 8.

noddyholder Sun 14-Apr-13 15:05:44

I think you need to go very light or dark Mid blue is a bit OAP they all wear them at our local church 'lunch club'

noddyholder Sun 14-Apr-13 15:07:08

nice have seen

JamEyelid Sun 14-Apr-13 15:53:07

I've been thinking of getting this Fat Face one.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 14-Apr-13 15:57:45

All Saints but expensive and probably too dark for you

LadyMountbatten Sun 14-Apr-13 16:27:58

Like the all saints one a lot.

landofsoapandglory Sun 14-Apr-13 16:33:34

I've got a Dorothy Perkins one from last year. It is a really nice fit, if you can get to a store they might have some more sizes in.

DS1 has a really light one, it's always in the wash!

noddyholder Sun 14-Apr-13 16:52:39

There is a lovely on in zara but i could n't do it up easily even teh L
