I'll start:

Bought four tops on Saturday this in the ivory and also in the red because I thought it was so nice

I also bought a red bolero cardi to go with the red one, and from new look a navy blazer type jacket. Very please with my purchases!

Next hunt is for some shoes to go with this for a dinner dance in May.

Also want a new dress for a wedding in June...and quite fancy some brown brogues.

Share please!

a cream t-shirt. Please do your best not to die of excitement grin.

It actually looked really nice, have visions of it with skinnies, sandals and sunglasses in summer (bwa ha ha ha ha ha).

I also did well in Gap sale - a jumper, vest top and t shirt for less than £15!!

Also raided TK Maxx for fab summer sandals and some great stuff for dd including a gorgeous lace dress.

Got some nice combats in Tesco too for a tenner - makes a comfy change from skinnies.

I love the sound of the wolf tee Remus, and thanks for linking to the 18 and East site the other day. Some great stuff on there - how is the quality?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 15-Apr-13 21:22:00

The Monsoon in Brum has a small 18 and East concession - had never heard of it before. The quality isn't great (it reminds me of the v thin hippy silk dresses I used to buy at Camden market in the 80s!) but they have a couple of slightly off-kilter pieces which are quite me! The sizing is huge btw.

marriedinwhiteagain Mon 15-Apr-13 21:22:27

Absolutely nothing since December. But I am going to Spain next week and might just have to find my way to the shops at the weekend for one or two bits and pieces.

I love it Anni, wearing it today. Great list!

BreakOutTheKaraoke Tue 16-Apr-13 12:45:14

This in the turquoise, gorgeous colour.

This in the yellow and the grey for my nephew.

I'm on the lookout for a pair of really faded jeans, but can't find any in the material I like- want slim, not skinny, preferably proper denim as my knees look a bit sausagey in jeans that are too stretchy, no rips but don't mind a bit distressed, and a high enough fit to not give me a muffin top, while not being grannyish. Need to fit a pear shape too. Not too picky!

DewDr0p Tue 16-Apr-13 13:06:42

Quite a bit. hit the Gap sale just before Easter.

Navy blazer - Gap
Bright blue sweater - Gap
Bright stripy scarf - Gap
Navy cardigan

I've been on a spending ban this month as I'm sick of winter clothes but can't bring myself to buy any summery stuff yet.

I have bought some nude Brogues from Clarkes

And these

I know, I know, I'm sure they'll look ridiculous, but I'm stupidly obsessed with dungarees and the only way I'll get them out of my system is to try then on
