Strappy tops under voluminous shirts (breastfeeding)
Brown skinny jeans (have had my colours done :-)
Neon yellow and hot pink jumpers (bought before having colours done but I love them so what the hell)
Animal print Louis Vuitton giant scarf
Oxblood ankle boots

Or more probably, due to having a newborn, vomit stained t shirts of DHs and torn track suit bottoms!

Feck all if I can't find anything I like in the shops. I'm a larger size and am struggling to find anything decent to wear amongst the sea of polyester tat that's out there. Grr.

scarlet76 Tue 13-Aug-13 23:25:12

Love the sound of oxblood ankle boots

Selks Tue 13-Aug-13 23:25:44

Sorry that wasn't an interesting post.

smellylittleorange Tue 13-Aug-13 23:26:10

scarlett, burgundy, french navy, emerald, bird print (is it still OK?) . Gothic accessories. My beloved primary pack a parka. Naice material, faux fur, those heat tech thermal things you all go on about!

LauraPashley Tue 13-Aug-13 23:27:55

What are animal print heels?!! (Am on the hunt for new boots!)

smellylittleorange Tue 13-Aug-13 23:30:22

Sells have a look on Tkmaxx I often just search "silk" or cashmere etc and see what comes up in my size. They had Cashmere dresses for £49 the other day .

Dark green waxed cotton coat (Tesco, and so perfect I want a spare);
Navy blue wool military coat (Zara, last year, my dream coat);
Black silk velvet blazer (ebay, some designer or over, great for dressing up or down);
Mottled grey viscose infinity scarf with crosses/black, green and white tie-dye viscose scarf (Primark, but look like All Saints);
Linen knit 3/4 sleeve layering tops in claret, pine green and black (Zara);
Loose knit slouchy jumpers in pale pink and silver grey (Wallis, last year, v comfy and bobble-proof);
Cotton layering vests in charcoal, silver grey, black, burgundy, and magenta (Primark);
Black/ivory striped viscose wiggle dress with rouched waist (Tesco, but looks like All Saints);
A-line black leather mini skirt (ebay, 10 years old and a winter staple);
Indigo skinny jeans (Gok @ Sainsbury's - only ones that don't gape at my waist, but seams aren't wonderful on mine);
Dr Marten's 8 hole leather boots in black patent or purple shimmer;
Black pearls and Trollbeads bracelet;
Grey, black, or claret opaque tights.

Basically, excluding the tights, exactly the same things I've been wearing for all but 1.5 months of the past year sad. They're all lovely clothes, but I wish the weather this summer had given me a decent excuse to buy some diaphanous, light-coloured stuff and give the heavy fabrics a break!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 14-Aug-13 00:00:07

midwash skinnies
grey skinnies
black 7/8ths trousers
black maxi skirt
khaki printed maxi skirt
Whistles and Topshop tube skirts
black tops (nothing new there!)
a grey jumper of some sort, if I can find a nice one
a black jumper - ditto
Whistles and Warehouse fabric bikers
Leather biker
A couple of jumper dresses
Snakeprint and leopard print in various guises
Opaque tights
Heeled tan cowboy-esque boots / flat black buckled boots
Brown Chelsea-esque boots if I can get some nice ones
Lots of silver bangles and/or a selection of cuffs (nothing new there either)

I suspect I will be a combination of grunge, early 80s and 60s-ish overall!

Selks Wed 14-Aug-13 00:00:32

Thanks, smellylittleorange, will take a look.

scarlet76 Wed 14-Aug-13 06:39:06

selks agree that the shops are awash with polyester and it's increasingly harder to find cotton, silk and cashmere.
smellylittle I'm still running with the bird print. I really like quirky print but I'm not cutting edge of fashion!
Laura I meant high heel, pointy court type shoes in animal print! I also have my eye on some flat ankle boots in an animal print.
Remus am also looking for a mid grey fitted crew neck in either lambswool or cashmere

I hadn't thought about jewellery. Lots of skinny leather and silver friendship type bracelets on one arm. A decent watch that I hope DH is going to buy me as a graduation gift!!! I would also like a cuff of some sort.

gaggiagirl Wed 14-Aug-13 06:54:09

Skinny jeans in indigo or black

Cashmere v neck sweaters in black or navy

My ' Mary berry ' navy and white striped wool Chanel-esque cardi/jacket

Navy vests for layering

Jumper dresses

opaque tights

Ankle boots

Navy short uggs

Navy peacoat

Blah there me and my navy again! I've no clue if it even suits me.

Kahu Wed 14-Aug-13 07:01:10

Remus & scarlet - J Crew have their merino Tippi crew neck in grey (& a load of other colours that I forget) on sale right now. Not sure what your shipping & duties would be to the UK though... It's a really lovely style.

Justshabbynochic Wed 14-Aug-13 07:05:53

What is a good brand comfy boot to buy? Can't afford Uggs but need something comfy and semi-stylish to do lots of walking (school runs, errands, etc.)?? Any suggestions?

CareerGirl01 Wed 14-Aug-13 08:56:14

Hmmm I have a wish list - had DD2 14 weeks ago...
Dr Marten long patent boots -
These skinny jeans
Superdry padded black jacket from Next
And for my fitness regime - these trainers from Sweaty Betty
and tops
Total cost - £425 ish! But I am starting a new job next month (writing from home)

foxysocks Wed 14-Aug-13 09:36:36

chunky knits
fine cashmere jumpers
skinny jeans in indigo, grey and black
biker boots / ankle boots dep on weather and outfit
knitted dresses
tweed wool shorts over opaques with one of aforementioned jumpers
brocade or tartan skirt, depending on what i fall in love with
silvery/gold toned miniskirts over tights with jumpers
big scarves - cobalt blue cashmere/silk, blush/ black star print, black mohair infinity scarf
coat will be either parka, leopard print, leather biker or down filled barbour

all I need is the tweed wool shorts, brocade/tartan skirt and black buckled biker boots. oh, and possibly a pepto pink cashmere jumper if one pops up at a good price.


RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 14-Aug-13 09:52:28

Thank you, Kahu. Am a fussy sod though, so need to be in a real shop. I saw a lovely grey one in TK Maxx yesterday (from a brand called Crew Clothing, which I don't know) but it was handwash, and I am too lazy.

Foxy - I have a gorgeous, Russian-inspired, brocade skirt (quite full and just below knee length) but I'm never quite sure how to wear it. A mini one would be much easier to wear!

Kezztrel Wed 14-Aug-13 09:53:19

my snuggly burgundy wool Whistles jumper dress
opaque black tights
black leather biker jacket
grey wool 7/8th trousers
grey with black spots merino jumper
scarlet slouchy CdC dress with black tights
black suede ankle boots
cashmere round neck jumpers
indigo skinny jeans
big printed scarves

MarshaBrady Wed 14-Aug-13 09:54:37

I need to do quite a big shop and I just don't know yet.

Some form of new ankle boot, coat, jumper and skirt or skinnies.

MadBusLady Wed 14-Aug-13 09:59:23

Ahhh, season of tweeds and fake fur. YES to opaques and shorts/minis, yes to useful big scarves that can be worn round the neck or wrapped around you in chilly cafes, and yes to layers of brown, I am definitely feeling like brown is a good idea again. Has been impossible to buy for the last few years.

Also these boots with skinnies and some form of slightly Lovejoyesque leather jacket (or maybe just a short Barbour) accessorized with a van in which I drive around and deal antique furniture and solve mysteries.

It is possible that I overthink clothes.

Lottapianos Wed 14-Aug-13 10:00:36

'Dark green waxed cotton coat (Tesco, and so perfect I want a spare);'

Nom, is this the £35 one with the hood? I've got my eye on one of those!

Skinny jeans in burgundy, navy, grey and black
Fitted/pencil skirts in various patterns
Black mini skirt with leggings and boots
My usual top half of long-sleeve plain t-shirt + patterned short-sleeve t-shirt on top
Soft cardis from H&M in blue, green and brown
Republic hi-tops and DM black ankle boots
Warm cosy socks (yay)
Loads of big warm patterned scarves
Nails - navy, burgundy, plum, hot pink, dark green, maybe a bit of black crackle thrown in too
Lips - going to be brave and get stuck into some strong colours, usually go for a nude lip but tempted by a new look (eek)

Justshabbynochic Wed 14-Aug-13 10:02:47

I must be the only person in the world who feels like a cock in ankle/biker boots. confused

MarshaBrady Wed 14-Aug-13 10:06:12

What do you wear Justshabby?

I love the idea of some knee high boots (after going through a stage of not wanting to wear them at all), but in reality find them a bit annoying.
