It might be unlucky for some but vol 13 is open to all who want to chat style, beauty and much more besides. Continued on from here

Have just ordered Asos skirt in berry and grey. The grey to wear with pale pink old AV pale pink sweatshirt and Converse (hope I'm not too ancient to pull it off) and the Berry will also look off beat and good I hope with same sweat plus ancient grey marl sweat.

Also have navy/cream chiffon pussycat blouse that may go with either/both in mad top-half secretary,bottom-half 80's Desperately Seeking Susan manner!

Can I hark back to the maxi dress convo, please? Not usually one for a maxi due to being vertically challenged, but found this on the extra petite blog and love it. Can anyone suggest something identical similar?

mignonette Wed 12-Jun-13 20:18:33

Oh I do love that coat Shop and how good is it that you have got so much wear. I am of the opinion that camel scares some people because they think they have to go all beigey-greigey neutral with it when in fact it looks so cool worn with bright clear colours.

Loewe bags and I'm thinking especially of the Flamenco are made in some great colour combinations and yes the Cabas tote also. Love the 'Souris' (Mouse) name, Linus and that flash of neon inside can be brilliant inspiration for what to wear under ones neutral or tonal winter coat.

I'll look for you Grumpy. It reminds me of an old M&S stretchy jersery dress I wore in the late 90's. It was knee length, navy and white horizontal stripe and had a slashed boat neck, short sleeves edged in navy knit. Loved it.

shopafrolic Wed 12-Jun-13 20:23:26

Not identical Grumpy but petite, striped and a maxi dress

I saw a lady today wearing a camel coat just like yours shop, with turned up dark denim skinnies, nude ballet flats, sunnies....v chic indeed.

LinusDKD Wed 12-Jun-13 20:30:16

Lovely coat shop! I love camel but I don't think it suits me.

Can anyone remind me about how to do the 'here' links so i don't post the entire Cyrillic alphabet in every link?

shopafrolic Wed 12-Jun-13 20:32:23

[[ these 2 brackets, then your link, then your words e.g. Fab coat, then ]] again

I love camel too. Very understated which I like.

Camel and light blue sounds gorgeous. Love all those combinations. Yes to Celine does fabulous colours.

Grumpy will have a look around.

mignonette Wed 12-Jun-13 20:50:26

Thanks Shop. I am such a troglodyte with IT.

Testing..... More camel

Hooray! It works! grin grin grin

Drywhiteplease Wed 12-Jun-13 20:50:49

As well as buying a pair of jeans I already have I bought
this top today for 3.99 in Gap. Only had one in my size. Can only find it on US EBay to link. Quite bright with a neon stripe. Good for slobbing around this summer. Rude not to.

MarshaBrady Wed 12-Jun-13 20:54:35

Well done Mignonette a clean link! grin.

Great top Dry.

LinusDKD Wed 12-Jun-13 21:01:41

I decided not to buy anything in the Matches sale but ordered this instead:

Splendid maxi skirt

I wanted it in black but they didn't have my size anymore.

MarshaBrady Wed 12-Jun-13 21:11:39

Linus if you love the Marant you should go for it, I wasn't sure if you wanted to be dissuaded. Do you still fancy getting it?

mignonette Wed 12-Jun-13 21:12:44

Love this Phillip Lim bikini here

So pretty. Like a modern print interpretation of those 'Country Diary of an Edwardian lady' books.

mignonette Wed 12-Jun-13 21:14:12

I didn't mean to dissuade you either Linus. It just reminded me of those jackets we used to wear. That's not a bad thing either. I loved my jacket and wore it with my first pair of drainpipes!

MarshaBrady Wed 12-Jun-13 21:15:33

That Lim bikini is gorgeous, teeny but gorgeous.

LinusDKD Wed 12-Jun-13 21:20:04

Lovely bikini! I think Ariadne Oliver in the Agatha Christie novels used to have wallpaper like that.

I think I'll sleep on the Marant jacket. If I spend that amount of money I do want something that will still look good in 5 or 10 years time.

Great colour combining chat. I was going to ask what people think of cobalt and yellow. Shop has sold me a gorgeous cobalt silk shirt and it's hanging beside this skirt in my wardrobe and I think it looks promising.
