Woo hoo! Over here.........

shopafrolic Tue 07-May-13 22:16:33

Lovely evening with another fab friend keeping me company. Really missing DH now....
I am loving the new Sam Edelman Gigis - really comfy. I should have tried them sooner. Will have to keep my eyes open for other colours that are reduced.
I have a big work meeting on Thursday - need to start planning what to wear.......
A Wang tees have been despatched - I have high hopes!

shopafrolic Tue 07-May-13 22:33:00

Am I the only one still up? Lots of Goldsigns on the Outnet.......
<twiddles thumbs>

Drywhiteplease Tue 07-May-13 22:34:07

Yey.....well done shop
Just ordered
Not terribly exciting, but v practical. Was supposed to be ordering the Me +Em dress but got sidetracked!! grin

Drywhiteplease Tue 07-May-13 22:34:33

Goldsign s...I'm off

OneLittleLady Tue 07-May-13 22:34:46

Dp goes away with work next week, only for a couple of days but it will be weird being alone sad

shopafrolic Tue 07-May-13 22:40:54

Phew! Thought I'd lost you all for a minute.
It is weird One. I had a rough afternoon with DS this afternoon, culminating in him accidentally headbutting me at bed time. I thought he'd broken my nose!! Made me miss DH even more as was in desperate need of some moral support and a hug.

santamarianovella Tue 07-May-13 22:41:26

yaaaay, a new thread!
lots of cavalli stuff too,i never liked their stuff ,hate the patterns.
and it seems they read my comment about using a real model,everything looks so much better now grin.

Sleepwhenidie Tue 07-May-13 22:43:47

Hey Shop sorry you are missing DH, the evenings are always the hardest sad. I would love to hang around and chat to keep you company but I did two sessions of kickboxing today and suddenly feel like I have been hit by a ton of bricks and need to go to bed soon smile. Don't buy too many things as consolation for DH being away grin.

OneLittleLady Tue 07-May-13 22:44:47

I chickened out of ordering the tube skirt that foxy linked to in the last thread. I'm far too scared of unleashing my jelly belly on the unsuspecting public. A twin pregnancy, c-section and then a five stone weight gain hasn't done my figure any favours sad

It really is going to be weird not having DP around shop I'm not used to being home alone and am a bit worried that I'm going to be very lonely and bored

shopafrolic Tue 07-May-13 22:48:39

You'll be fine One everyone here will keep you company. I'm enjoying having the bed to myself, it's just hard looking after DS solo and I think he's starting to realise that daddy has been gone a while.
Am hitting the sack now myself. Well done on the kickboxing Sleep very impressive.
Anni glad you've got drugs and hope you're feeling much better.
Wishing everyone a decent night's sleep after all today's dramas.....

santamarianovella Tue 07-May-13 23:01:50

shop DD had a major tantrum at the shops this afternoon,i feel your pain.
little lady dont worry too much,you will be fine.
very impressive sleep i can barely lif my arm after one session.!

noviceoftheday Tue 07-May-13 23:18:41

Thinking of you Shop and the sick Voguettes like Anni. Long day so am off to bed!

LinusDKD Wed 08-May-13 07:07:26

shop I hope you had a good night!

None of the Goldsigns are in my size. angry. Not that I need another pair of jeans.

What I do need are more belts, what is the best place to look for them?

I specifically need a red belt to wear with white trousers (and white skinnies if I ever find a pair that I like)

Hopefully Wed 08-May-13 07:11:14

linus have you tried The site is naff, but the belts are lovely quality.

Boo, rain here today. So that was summer then?

Annianni Wed 08-May-13 07:33:36

Rain due here too.

Feel vile, hardly slept. Need to get ds2 to school somehow...

MrsR, I've pm'd you.

Decameron Wed 08-May-13 07:34:20

OneLittleLady, get a stack of books, magazines and DVDs in, he'll be back before you know it.

Hope your nose is ok, Shop, and your DS' nose too, Hopefully!

How are you feeling today, Anni and QueenC?

Linus, I bought a great red belt from Comptoir des Cotonniers but it was a while ago.

I ordered a pair of grey Misfits from the Outnet, I have them in dark denim and I wear them loads <justifying>.

Paris, no idea about what to wear in HK but it sounds like an amazing trip.

Can't remember anything else, should have made notes!

Decameron Wed 08-May-13 07:36:23

Oh yes, congratulations on your twin nephews, Shop!

MarshaBrady Wed 08-May-13 07:41:27

Well done Shop, bumper edition!

I'd be the same, sorry to hear it was not good at bedtime (can completely get why that would make you miss your dh).

Dang, Goldsigns, doubt any left going to have a look.

Drywhiteplease Wed 08-May-13 08:06:13

Why is it that when I've done a huge denim wash it bloody rains?sad
My no black week lasted precisely one day!grin

shopafrolic Wed 08-May-13 08:15:16

Morning all! So I have a bit of a black eye! Which is always a good look. DS is definitely starting to play up with DH away. Lots of fuss over food which he normally eats straight up. The prospect of spending a rainy morning stuck indoors with a whingeing toddler is not appealing so we'll have to head out. Seeing friends for a playdate this afternoon but that feels very far away at the moment.
I think it was me who jinxed the weather by buying the Gigis and 2 pairs of shorts for DS yesterday. Feel free to throw things.

Annianni Wed 08-May-13 08:30:25

Thanks Shop and everyone.

Have a look on flannels Shop, they had some yellow/beige patent ones in the clearance bit for £40.

shopafrolic Wed 08-May-13 08:36:52

Not there now Anni - no worries, no rush. There's a lovely all brown pair in a size 5 though for the smaller footed amongst us......

carrie74 Wed 08-May-13 08:40:05

Poor Anni, really hope the fug lifts and you feel better v soon.

shop hope things better today with DS. How much longer to wait now? And thank you for starting new thread thanks.

Sad not to see the sun this morning, but OMG, Massimo Dutti has some gorgeous things in at the moment, have pinned loads. Especially love the maxis. Am feeling a bit meh about MD though, as last time I ordered, I got one hero piece (silk shirt), one awful piece (cowl top that was just ill fitting), and a belt which has been ok, but not worn it loads. Maybe it's all about choosing the right material and the rest falls into place.

Right, late for SR, see yous later...
