This is a continuation of that thread. Feel free to join smile

Oh please can more lurkers join. I get a bit unnerved about the amount of people who know what's in our wardrobes and see our drunken wish lists grin

MarshaBrady Fri 26-Apr-13 13:38:35

Brilliant thanks Shop, love a fresh new edition.

EarlyInTheMorning Fri 26-Apr-13 13:40:52

I would join in except I know you'll kick me out when I tell you I'm lusting after these:

Ok, I'm moving over to new edition. But please all note my pitiful last post - I have NO FLAT SHOES that aren't winter boots or flip flops. How is this possible? I'm thinking as a minimum I need:
1. slipper flats/other plain flat (ballet pump equivalent, but ballet pumps look shit on me)
2. sneakers/trainers
3. Some sandals that have more than 0.5mm of sole left before my feet are touching the actual road when I wear them

Early those hybrid tennis wedges are so out there you have to stay grin.

Hopefully yes you do. Which first?

EarlyInTheMorning Fri 26-Apr-13 13:47:35

Don't encourage me Marsha...grin

Hopefully Fri 26-Apr-13 13:50:35

Early WTF would you wear them with?

EarlyInTheMorning Fri 26-Apr-13 13:51:19

Cropped navy chinos. How about that?

Hopefully Fri 26-Apr-13 13:52:20

Well they are very... ermm.... directional grin

Hopefully Fri 26-Apr-13 13:52:50

Marsha whichever I come across first in London tomorrow!

Hopefully Fri 26-Apr-13 13:53:41

I quite fancy some NBs like Amber but worry that as I am less cool than her I will just look like I got lost on the way to the gym...

EarlyInTheMorning Fri 26-Apr-13 13:58:55

Lovely sandals in Massimo Dutti

libertychick Fri 26-Apr-13 14:22:51

Hopefully I am so not cool but I have the NB trainers too and got TWO compliments on them today at work (dress down day) from under 25 year old whippersnappers! V chuffed. When you are in London you will notice that no one seems to be wearing 'proper' shoes - it's all converse, Vans and retro addidas, NB's, nikes etc.

Hopefully Fri 26-Apr-13 14:27:57

Where do we think I might find the NBs in London that's not going to be too difficult, either in knightsbridge or oxford circus area?

Hopefully Fri 26-Apr-13 14:28:43

Liberty I live in Devon - fashion capital of the UK, it ain't. I have no idea what proper city types are wearing atm! grin.

Annianni Fri 26-Apr-13 14:31:53

Ooh hello...

I can see some hip young thing rocking those Hasbeen's.
I, however, would look like an arse grin

That Jaeger top is lovely QueenC
Stock up with Napisan when you go shopping, just incase.

it's just marsha and I holding the fort over there, someone come back to stop us buying cowl necks and birkies.

MarshaBrady Fri 26-Apr-13 14:36:15

ah am laughing. Not the cowl neck nooo

QueenCadbury Fri 26-Apr-13 14:38:01

hopefully what the hell do you wear then? I live in my converse. You are deginately cool enough to wear NBs- I can totally see you in a bright pair. I don't know if schuh or office have them but they have loads of other trainers and have a trying on session. As I said earlier in the week I love the adidas gazelles but I seriously looked like I was wearing slippers.

I find shoes really difficult as if you walk for any considerable distance they either fall apart or rub you to death. Even owning 4 pairs of converse I still manage to wear through the soles on a regular basis.

early welcome. Please stay. I want to see the rest of your wardrobe winkgrin

Hopefully - Zara also have lovely sandals and Atterley Road have nice slipper shoes (Just Ballerinas). I always like Russell and Bromley for sandals if you don't mind spending a bit more, e.g.,these.

Took DD2 to the GP and she screamed blue murder when the doctor came to the waiting room to get her! blush Also can't get DD2 into the bath this week, think she associates the doctor and bath with her hives. She's fine now though.

Shop, jeans are on the way. Hope you all have a lovely day together celebrating.

Sold three pairs of Boden cargos, I went a bit mad buying them. I'm trying to be ruthless and clear out my wardrobe. I find it hard to say goodbye though!

foxysocks Fri 26-Apr-13 14:38:38

i'll add a silk scarf to your order M. special air hostess-stylie.

Decameron Fri 26-Apr-13 14:38:54

Napisan is the business!
