MN Vogue - Vol 19(1001 Posts)
All welcome to talk style, beauty, fashion etc. Continuing on from here
Ah! And Foxy so sorry to hear about your fall. You poor thing. I hope you're in bed resting and feel better tomorrow. I remember about the big yoga week, hope you're ok.
this Mulberry *Mig*
Not sure i can bear to be parted even if I just look at it and stroke it.....
Hi Mary - welcome! I'm a big fan of a colour clash - I feel a bit of a fraud when I go to work and have to do matchy matchy!
On colours, I have had my colours done, but I don't stick to it religiously, though I do recognise some colours are really bad on me (step forward cream, mustard, sea green, salmon) and avoid them. Basically most brights look good on me, more muted colours generally don't. I think colour/style analysis is as prescriptive as you make it.
Hi Mary Nice to meet you. Are you on Pinterest? if not I highly recommend it as a way of organising your closet and potential purchases. Let us know your Pin name if yes. QueenCadubury's colour combination board is a great way of incorporating more offbeat colours into your style. I love it and am also a clashy/offbeat girl. I'm not a 'classic' dresser although i do have classic items. A dress agency is a brilliant way of buying high quality stuff. I use them and like getting better for less.
Glad to have another contributer to the thread. We are friendly and don't snark.
dry I quite like GofT as well but am multitasking whilst watching it i.e. surfing the net.
Shop WHY? That is a forever bag. Are you absolutely sure? I wouldn't part with that because even if it is just a 'funeral' bag (grim example), it would earn its keep. Do you have a daughter who will one day weep with despair when she hears about the Mulberry bag her Mother sold (laying it on thick I am)......I say that because I gratefully received quite a few amazing vintage bags and clothes from my Mother and Grandmother. Gucci Flora bags, a classic red/green ribbon stripe Gucci clutch and loafers, My Grandmothers 1940-50's sundresses (totally Loren)....
That is a lovely bag shop!
Are you sure that the 'no black' rule also applies to accessories? Looking at your pins that bag works with a lot of your colours, no?
Ok ok - I do love it so will keep for now. Thanks all. And Mig no DD here so D had better marry well
I'm a fan of black tights w/ white dresses/skirts and black bags w/ pale colours so I think that bag is very adaptable. I often weave scarves around bag handles so they are covered. That helps lift a bag. I also tie scarves onto handles to trail behind but prefer the covered handle effect. A white or cream silk scarf wrapped or attached to that bag would look very soignee Shop.
I'm sure there'll be a DIL or a niece to pass that onto if you decide to Shop! Don't do what I did and give away a limited edition pair of Converse to a son's GF only for them to separate two weeks later!
Hello Mary and congrats on the revamp. Four stone weight loss is very impressive!
Hi everyone. Haven't been on here in a while.
Foxy, sorry about your back, hope you will be ok for yoga next week. I'm glad you found your boots on sale.
Shop, don't sell the bag! I have sold a few bags (two Louis Vuitton epi leather, not the logo ones) when DD1 was a baby and I am so sorry now. I was about to sell a Prada bag recently but the A&W ladies made me see sense.
I am curious as to what colour season I am and do think it is worth having done but have yet to take the plunge. I'm definitely not a winter but have spent too much on my wardrobe to get rid of the black.
Carrie, the Aigle Cuckmere is a great coat, I will be using mine for the third winter now. It's true to size, I think John Lewis stocked them last year. As I said on pinterest, it is not waterproof but it keeps me dry on the walk to school.
Novice, congratulations on the house.
Anni I saw your Hudson purchases on Pin, looks good.
We are looking to buy a house at the moment too so I decided I'd better sort out my spending. At least for this month, I'll work on my AW list after that. I did get this for £4.95 (the delivery charge) this week though.
One, you are a modern Snow White indeed, really lovely.
Enjoy the rest of your holidays, Dry and QueenC.
Have fun tomorrow, those who are meeting up.
Thanks for the welcome!
Marsha, I bought them second-hand so not exact links but, the bag is a bit like this (except nowhere near as expensive as I'm a tight-arse):
Way more expensive bag than mine
This is really similar to the skirt I bought as mine is an unknown brand! However, must say that after looking these links up I'm even more pleased withy bargain purchases!
Let's see if I can link at the first attempt.
So I can link but not write in sentences: *with my, obviously.
Hi everyone, welcome Mary (although I would prefer Owly as nn? )
Foxy so sorry to hear about your fall . I really hope you feel better soon.
Novice - fab news about the house, how exciting! Have a lovely time at CP (especially in the hot tub )
Re black, I am definitely veering away from it in the last year or two, I'm not sure how much influence you lot have had and how aware I am that it is harder to wear as I age but I still love black jeans and skirts and my Marant Monty jacket, though that is threaded through with colour and metallics so doesn't really count...what I so know though Shop, is that the colours Ive seen you in really look fab, it will be interesting to see the conclusion re black tomorrow .
We had a gorgeous day at the top of a huge mountain today. DH and DC's built a campfire and cooked sausages and steaks then built a dam in the river, went exploring with walkie-talkies while I read my book in the sun - 30 deg again but with a lovely breeze. We are packing up ready for our move down South tomorrow. Have to say I am looking forward to some relaxing poolside action, wifi and hopefully some decent shops . Santa how are you getting on? Mig and other experts, please remind me what I should be grabbing in French pharmacies . I have already bought some Caudalie, open to recommendations though!
Waves to Decam - was thinking of you today as I pulled my Goldsigns out of the wardrobe!
Shop love the bag, you must keep it.
Mig I had a whole wardrobe of
good quality work suits in dark colours I kept or funerals after I had my DCs....after 12 years and no funerals lucky they all went to a dress agency. It was a sad day.....a few still remain in the graveyard wardrobe though
Hello Mary do stay, you know is all anyway...might as well eh?
Amber outfit 29 (Paige jeans,pink t shirt) is so me ( even though I go on and on about dresses which I adore) most of the time I'm dressed more casually.....if you ever see some jeans like those let me know (the Goldsign ones sold out).
Right - off to bed. See some of you fashionistas tomorrow xx
