hello hello smile

shop i missed your exercise wear rec, if you were indeed asking me?!?

I favour american apparel leggings. they do one with little buttons at the sides. i think they are called placket crop and often cheap in sales (£11 ish). they wear and wash really well, I have pairs from 2008.

tops - i wear cheapo H&M long tanks usually. the £4 ones but with thick straps not spaghetti.

bras - have one from sweaty betty and one from JL (on it's last legs). may replace with a stella m one at some point (stocked on NaP and outnet)

I also LOVE lululemon. I like the Y tanks and the wunder under crops. really flattering, don't shift at all during a yoga practice, and wash brilliantly. they are more expensive though, I have one Y and two wunder unders compared to <counts> four AA placket crops and three H&M tanks.

i also generally start off wearing a l/s tee till i'm a bit warmer. these are the only thing my primarni l/s tees are good for! but it gets discarded after the first five mins, and I don't use at all if I'm practicing with my teacher in london as the room is HOT. or in india, ditto.

sleep I may not want to keep this skirt in an XS, it really depends. is that dark enough or not?

Hopefully Thu 16-May-13 17:23:14


Anni you poor thing. I managed to fall from top to bottom of our stairs with both my DSs when DS2 was only a couple of weeks old. I was full on HYSTERICAL for a while, couldn't function at all. Was horrendous. They both cried for a couple of minutes and were absolutely fine, of course.

My sales list is:
- flat sandals of some description
- pointy courts, if the ones I want go in the sale anywhere
- slim fitting v neck sweater, merino or cashmere or silk mix.

shopafrolic Thu 16-May-13 18:13:36

Thanks for that Foxy. I was indeed asking you! smile I'll take a look. Leggings would be better than trousers I guess as they don't hang round your knees when your legs are in the air! IYSWIM
So no Wang wearing for me on Saturday then? <Deletes Wang vest from list of possible things to wear>. I am starting to get super nervous. Just want you all to know I'm not famous, or married to anyone vaguely interesting (love you DH!), I'm a bit dull really......worried........

LinusDKD Thu 16-May-13 18:41:21

Hello! What a day!

We left very early this morning to catch a flight so DC and I can stay at my parents while DH is on a boys' weekend. envy

!$!#?& luggage handlers at Brussels Airport have been on strike since Sunday so we only took hand luggage but they still refused to get the push chair out of the hold even though we handed it to them at the entrance of the plane asking them to give it back to us at our destination!

Then our train was late so we took a £££ taxi to my parents and the afternoon went downhill from there really. DD teething and unsettled and DS overexcited from seeing his grandparents.

Bath and bedtime over so fingers crossed they both sleep well and I have time to catch up on what everyone has bought today.

Right, a big glass of red wine is waiting for me!

santamarianovella Thu 16-May-13 18:42:52

foxy i hope you dont mind me asking,do you practce birkam ?im about to sign for a class,but not so sure yet,heard its too difficult.

i promised my self not to buy anything during sales but i might consider getting these :

-zadig and voltaire jacket
-vanessa bruno sweater

AmberNectarine Thu 16-May-13 18:45:27

What can't you wear the Wang shop? We'll all look different in our stuff anyway - if you saw Marsha you'd see how ridiculous the idea of us looking like twins in the same skirt is!

I'm not very exciting either. I do a mind-bleedingly boring job. Honestly, it's an eyeglazer - I start talking about it and people want to die.

foxysocks Thu 16-May-13 19:02:57

oh linus what a drama! glad it's over now, enjoy your wine.

shop yes I can't wear anything that flaps around my legs or anything too loose on top as it falls down to my chin when I'm upside down! need to keep stomach firmly covered.

santa no, I practice ashtanga. i don't think bikram is too difficult but i DO think it's completely crazy and am not sold on the benefits they claim. choudhary is a rather, erm, strange figure. lots to read via google if you fancy it. and any ashtanga qus, hit me with them!

noviceoftheday Thu 16-May-13 19:17:01

Oh my goodness Linus and Anni! Hope you're feeling better.

Welcome LLL, I am 5'2". No chance of me being helpful to you!!grin

Shop wear your Wang. I shall prob be in New Look to distract from the bling I have promised if that helps!grin

I am fortunate in that my job is fab but it can be all consuming at times.

shopafrolic Thu 16-May-13 19:33:41

You're right Amber we could probably all turn up in the same top and look completely different. Right, I still have no clue what to wear, it will probably all be decided by which jacket (if any) I buy tomorrow! I'm rubbish at planning things in advance, will make a last minute decision on the day and hope for the best.
Linus whenever we travel to see inlaws our DS really struggles with the excitement and sleep is a challenge. Hopefully they'll be so exhausted they'll give you an easy night. Enjoy the wine. So what happens to your buggy then?

shopafrolic Thu 16-May-13 19:34:30

Is there anyone else who lets out an involuntary giggle when Wang is used in a certain way e.g Wear your Wang etc. or is that just me? <juvenile>

foxysocks Thu 16-May-13 19:37:03

now amber, i honestly don't mean to sound pervy, but your boobs are AMAZING.

shopafrolic Thu 16-May-13 19:39:36

And you know that because?????

AmberNectarine Thu 16-May-13 19:42:13

God I need more jackets shop, but I am mad fussy about them. And yes, I enjoy the use of the word Wang in many contexts. Especially when my DH says he is going to 'hang out with his Wang out'.

foxy thank you! Bastards to dress though, I assure you!

shopafrolic Thu 16-May-13 19:45:36

Aha! Just saw the pic. You do have a cracking figure Amber.
Yup I hate buying jackets. You needs loads to cover all bases and I can't afford to do that. I was kind of hoping for sun on Sat so I didn't need to bother.
Excellent Wang-age by your DH smile

foxysocks Thu 16-May-13 19:51:58

my R&B jacket is my best buy this year I reckon. i hope one of the ones you have ordered is perfect for you, shop. i have a great choc brown leather all saints one with asymmetric buttons, it gets loads of use.

you do have a cracking figure amber. tiny waist too.

LinusDKD Thu 16-May-13 20:00:22

shop me too! <mind like a cesspit>

<chants> wang wang wang wang wang. grin

Anni I hope you are both ok!

foxy I love those shoes, wish I could do yellow.

I filled in a lost luggage claim online and requested that the buggy be sent back home to Switzerland as I doubt they will find it before we leave on Sunday. There were 20.000 bags abandoned in the airport!!!

Annianni Thu 16-May-13 20:24:04

Thanks for the good wishes... ds was very clingy after it happened yesterday, but he's fine today.

My hip's sore and i've got a lovely carpet burn on my elbow that's a bit stingy.

Now ladies... I need some advice...

I've just had the horror of seeing myself in the m&s 360' mirrors <sob>

And I need to do something about it.
So tomorrow do I get my copy of the shred out of it's wrapper, or do I do a yoga dvd that I've got from years ago.

Bearing in mind that I last exercised about 3 years ago.

Drywhiteplease Thu 16-May-13 20:30:21

"Get your Wang out"" fantastic!!!grin
Am [jealous] amber, and novice of your matching undies......I'm a 32b, impossible to find undies, never have my size in stocksad
I looked at a neon pink cotton cable jumper today...NEON PINK !! I'm sludge woman, what's happening I me?
Please can we have outfit descriptions for those of us who won't be there Sat?

OneLittleLady Thu 16-May-13 20:35:29

Do the Shred Ani it works, it really does

Annianni Thu 16-May-13 20:37:36

Tan flat sandals
Rag & bone boots (never gonna happen)
Grey cross body bag (would love the AH on the outnet, but as above... ngh)
Slouchy low v neck tee's in white and grey marl
Pale grey thin knit cardi, waterfall slouchy type, also a navy one

And a new jeans belt

Think that'll do for now grin

MarshaBrady Thu 16-May-13 20:39:08

Thanks for fresh new vol Decam

Anni big sympathies, I stumbled down stairs with ds2 in my stupid APC boots when he was tiny. I was so used to flats that the smallish heel caught me off step. Was horrible. Oh Hopefully at holding both, I would be so upset too!

Shop I may well Wang it. <hehe> So yes go for it the more the merrier!

Sleep chuckle at designer of choice, this thread is brought to you by T Wang. (freebies please)

Amber you do have a cracking figure, love the outfit on your blog.

Oh no Linus what a drag. And it was right there, how annoying!

Anni shred does work, but I'm tempted to get into yoga. I like the idea of stretching things rather than those plank things.

Annianni Thu 16-May-13 20:41:14

Sod the descriptions Drywhite, I want photos or skyping grin

I'm taking ds1 to see the new iron man and for me to perve over rdj on Saturday.

noviceoftheday Thu 16-May-13 20:43:15

shockshockshockBlimey....I don't have a sales list! I just can't get into s/s 2013sad

Dry, I sympathise on the bras!
