expatinscotland Sat 20-May-06 19:52:28

there's nothing like matching underwear.

i've finally lost all the baby weight and thought i'd treat myself.

Northerner Sat 20-May-06 19:56:11

Welsh borris - your purchases sound lovely.

I will look out for that top on my next visit to Primark

I love polka dots. I have some cullote crop jeans and I love them.

WelshBoris Sat 20-May-06 20:00:17

Northerner I cant stop looking at the top, its a real find

AllieBongo Sat 20-May-06 20:04:09

boris, i'm off shopping sunday and monday with my ma for a summer wardrobe (I've sold all my size 14 clothes!!) a bit older and fatter than you.. what would you suggest?

WelshBoris Sat 20-May-06 20:14:04

Long vests. cover a multitude of sins and are in New Look and Dotty Ps

White linen trousers, can be worn in day or night always look good can brighten up any outfit

Shirt dress, can be worn on its own, over linen trousers jeans or black trousers for work. Theyre everywhere try on a few to see what suits you

Spots are big, dont wear them all over youll look like youve got measles. Just a top or maybe a headband? Even a scarf in your jeans as a belt would work

Erm, for jeans loads of cropped ones around, again try them on to see what suits you and what you feel comfortable in. No good buying them if you feel conscious.

Next have some nice stuff too

Set of pink sparkly bangles - Accessorize
Set of brown and khaki/green sparkly bangles - Accessorize
Pea green cropped cardigan with 3/4 length sleeves - just hold together at the top with a diamante button - Monsoon
Plain white short slip to go under white 'gypsy' type skirt from last year that can see knickers through! - M&S

Haircut - Regis
Tuna and mayo hoagie with chips and salad for lunch - The Nags Head

Think that's everything
