Shop that sounds like the best kind of date.

Linus that is so funny. So close to what we wore at 16. Blinking pearls, blazers, velvet headbands, loafers, turned up pie crust collars and oh my goodness little air hostess silk scarves. Whilst getting blotto even. Little Sloanes in the outback (well not quite the outback).

linus great ...did you have a hair and too? Love a turned up collar!

LinusDKD Sun 01-Sep-13 20:36:19

I am afraid to say I was still in my preppy phase when I met DH: pink polo shirt (maybe with upturned collar blush ) and dark grey linen trousers. I might have even worn a pearl necklace...

I'll get my coat.

I remember I was at work, we had met online and he suddenly text and said, I've got an hour before meeting friends tonight shall we meet up. Me "I'm coming straight from work and will look rubbish"
Cue me leaving work early, racing home, getting changed into 'smart casual as though I'd just left work' and then heading to the bar to meet him! He only found out last year that I'd lied! grin
He ended up cancelling on his mates and we stayed out all night, the rest, as they say, is history.

Drywhiteplease Sun 01-Sep-13 20:27:37

MarshaBrady Sun 01-Sep-13 20:27:25

Linus would be lovely to meet you at a Christmas mu!

Great question Dry.

I do believe it was a Miu Miu blue and white gingham shirt (which rather embarrassingly is STILL in my wardrobe, although I don't wear it these days). I remember buying it in one of the big dept stores, so Selfridges or other. And Cheap Monday skinnies. At work.

OneLittleLady Sun 01-Sep-13 20:26:46

When I first met DP? Blue denim mini skirt, black lace up calf length boots, Black cardi black opaque tights and a black sabbath t-shirt with black duffle coat. I pinched his scarf because it was freezing and returning it was his way of getting me out on a date with him the following week grin

MarshaBrady Sun 01-Sep-13 20:24:59

hehe me too grin

LinusDKD Sun 01-Sep-13 20:24:57
