Thanks for the warm welcome.

I love, love love those Chloe shoes Santa, especially the heel.

Thanks also for the positive reviews on my outfit. I don't wear dresses very often. My midriff is squidy so anything fitted at the waist is a no no. That's why I thought a shift would look best.

In terms of bling, I thought I would wear either a solid silver cuff (was my Nana's from the 60's) or a cocktail ring but not both. I really like the one that Amber got but will have to find a cheapo version. I'll put plain studs in my ears and I have quite flashy engagement and wedding rings so usually keep everything else minimal. A pink bag sounds good too. I'll google.

I am on Pinterest. I'll post a link later when I've spring cleaned my boards!

Shop Here is a link to the Hasbeen-alikes. I got them in the seconds sections so were £48 <tight>

Sorry, the Hasbeen-alikes were £38 in the seconds section!

I like the sandals paris for some reason though, they remind me heavily of the 90's. Could be because they are almost identical in colour to the pair of satin trousers I used to wear at the time wink

Relive the 90's OneLittle! No silver sadly.

actually quite like the grey and the cobalt ones but not with short top

Vol 9? Fab.

Are you sure that the quilted sweatshirts on Atterley road shop?
Couldn't see it anywhere...

shopafrolic Fri 26-Apr-13 18:20:30

Oh bugger - sorry LeFreak it's showing as OOS now!

neon pink clutch for Paris

OneLittleLady Fri 26-Apr-13 18:22:24

Haha, brilliant paris sadly I don't have the figure for those anymore but if I did, I'd be all over them!

shopafrolic Fri 26-Apr-13 18:23:03

I think I'm too old for the whole Hasbeen thing. I just don't get it. They remind me of Scholl. Look great on you youngsters but not me I think (probably not helped by long legs and big feet!)

Hopefully Fri 26-Apr-13 19:21:16

Shop I don't know how old you are, but I am definitely either too old or too young for hasbeens. They look like granny sandals to me shock <sacrilege>

Hopefully Fri 26-Apr-13 19:22:38

But then I am the woman who doesn't like ballet pumps, so what do I know? grin

Hello Paris, welcome! Love the outfit. The shoes are similar to a pair I have my eye on but dh and I would have to go to a lot more interesting places for me to justify the cost! Let me know if the Zara ones are comfy!

Shop what happened?! I logged on waiting for lots of exciting drunk links and nada! sadgrinI am so happy for you and your dh though.

Hopefully Fri 26-Apr-13 19:35:13

Yes, thanks travel. Am not sure they will be good with my big feet though - have to be v careful with sneakers.

My eyes travel! Why do they have such frightening thick soles? The top half is nice though. Maybe you could sand them down... grin

OneLittleLady Fri 26-Apr-13 20:32:39

Is it wrong that I like the sandals that travel has posted? blush

OneLittleLady Fri 26-Apr-13 21:29:49

Anyone in the leeds area with money to spend and likes Vivienne Westwood want a buy two items in store and get 20% off code? The email can be forwarded to a friend but has to be printed and redeemed in store by the 5th of May. If anyone's interested let me know. I have no money to spend otherwise I'd use it myself sad
