I was thinking about this today. I think mine is these shoes. I have worn them several times a week and still love them to bits.

Anyone else care to share?

I spent shock at Laundry in Manchester when visiting my mum. Their stuff is amazing - I bought about 9 items of clothing! Seriously, if you go to Manchester go in and ask to be styled. I have a million outfits out of those items AND they go with the rest of my wardrobe.

new jacket - love it so much. And have worn several times in the last week.

AmberNectarine Wed 12-Jun-13 20:46:27

I was going to get that jacket mrsCB but sold out in my size by the time they deigned to give me a preview code. It's lovely - will you reverse it do you think?

AmberNectarine Wed 12-Jun-13 20:48:35

Waiting just had a look at their site and now wish I lived in Manchester - love the tribal maxis!

DewDr0p Wed 12-Jun-13 21:04:27

I love those shoes amber and the jacket mrsc

Mine is probably these boots from Office. Thought it was a bit late to be buying boots when I got them <hollow laugh> but have worn them loads!

Although my new sandals might be a close contender if the sun ever reappears!

DewDr0p Wed 12-Jun-13 21:05:15

waiting love the look of that shop too - was v pleasantly surprised by the prices grin

Mine are a couple of basics which make everything else easier to wear AND go really well together. Neither of them are online anymore -
black cigarette trousers - Cos
black mesh jumper - Cos

and my lovely tan leather Converse, which I am utterly devoted to, after dithering for ages about whether to buy them. smile

These M&S flats which I found while hunting for a cheaper alternative to Amber's gorgeous JV's. They work with almost everything.

And this Gerard Darel dress but in black which I have worn at least once a week since I bought it in the January sales. Very comfortable, work appropriate and just enough va va voom to put a spring in my step smile

liberty - GD is my go to for workwear.

Remus - glad the cons are working out for you!

Dew those sandals are gorgeous, and they'll last you til you're 80 as you'll only wear them once a year wink

Liberty: i've had my eye on those M and S flats for a little while.. Tell me, if you don't mind, are they grey neutral or beige neutral? Thank you

ToastedTeacakes Thu 13-Jun-13 15:04:39

For me, it was Kiehls 'creme de corps' body moisturiser. Leaves skin so soft and glowing.

ToastedTeacakes Thu 13-Jun-13 15:05:39

And my Chloe mini marcie. I am skint now but no regrets oddly enough grin

foxysocks Thu 13-Jun-13 15:14:12

good qu! I think mine is probably a rag and bone grey jersey biker from the outnet. have worn about three times a week if not more.

this one

although skinny grey goldsigns also right up there, SO useful flattering and comfortable. OH and ash nude trainers - ditto.

sweetheart Thu 13-Jun-13 15:22:32

liberty could I ask where you got the GD dress from?

AmberNectarine Thu 13-Jun-13 15:30:02

Toasted did you return the Hobbs?

libertychick Thu 13-Jun-13 15:44:12

Sonotkylie they are beige neutral and the trim is black. The patterning is all over the place - I ordered 3 pairs before I got one I was happy with!

sweetheart I got the GD dress in the GD shop on Marylebone High Street

Sonotkylie Thu 13-Jun-13 15:45:59

Thank you very much. I couldn't tell from the picture. Back to the umming and ahhing ...

libertychick Thu 13-Jun-13 16:05:01

Quite a few of the regulars on the MN Vogue thread have bought them sonotkylie and the consensus is that you need to size up in them. They are fab smile

santamarianovella Thu 13-Jun-13 16:23:04

mrscb I love that marant jacket,really gutted it sold out in my size,
For it me it's this jacket by iro.
liberty that GD dress is so gorgeous.
toasted did u get the Chloe instead of the Hobbs?

Sonotkylie Thu 13-Jun-13 16:26:22

Wanted them to be grey. But black piping makes them more versatile ... You KNOW i'm going to do it don't you ...
Thanks for the tip!

Sleepwhenidie Thu 13-Jun-13 16:29:13

these would be my favourite buy of the year, closely followed by another Marant

charitygirl Thu 13-Jun-13 16:33:45

Probably my Ash Virgins - not terribly exciting but after a few frustrating weeks in the Uk finding them sold out in my size everywhere, I spotted them on holiday in Venice and snapped them up.

Have also worn this a lot - and what a bargain it is now!

Ashoething Thu 13-Jun-13 17:04:09

Any of my Lady vintage London dresses as I wear them all the time!

The tan t-bar shoes I got for £3 from charity shop or the red waist cincher belt that was £2 from primark.

ToastedTeacakes Thu 13-Jun-13 17:10:35

AmberNectarine No, i am ashamed to admit to buying both - and loving them! Bag collection hopefully complete for yrs to come. Had to cancel this yrs holiday so thought 'sod it' and bought bags instead shock
