I just want to congratulate you all for not jumping ship early. I am a v happy new thread setter-upper.

LinusDKD Thu 17-Oct-13 20:16:47

I was being a good girl and kept posting on the old thread until the end! <polishes halo>

OneLittleLady Thu 17-Oct-13 20:17:07

I was so eager not to disappoint, I got in with a sneaky 1001 post on the last thread grin

LinusDKD Thu 17-Oct-13 20:17:52


I just love the neckline of this top.

Annianni Thu 17-Oct-13 20:18:31

Love the wallpaper Shop.

shopafrolic Thu 17-Oct-13 20:20:22

Thanks Anni the sample looks almost hand painted, really quite lovely.

MarshaBrady Thu 17-Oct-13 20:22:36

Good one Shop.

Thanks so much for the Gap code. I just need to check something with Liberty tomorrow, I remembered I had a good voucher that's meant to be on it's way and there's 20% off atm. So I could get something quite cheaply. If I don't, it's Gap!

Linus ah your Zara links are going to the home page. Can't see it, but sounds really good!

MarshaBrady Thu 17-Oct-13 20:22:51

Yes to wallpaper btw, very nice.

shopafrolic Thu 17-Oct-13 20:24:50

The Zara links..... When it says are you shopping in the UK click it, and then it shows the product......

MarshaBrady Thu 17-Oct-13 20:26:22

Oh yes so it does!

LinusDKD Thu 17-Oct-13 20:27:20

marsha If I click on one of your Zara UK links, I get redirected to the homepage but when I have chosen my country and language I get sent to the actual link.

I have just seen some leather trousers on the Zara website for 679 CHF!!! (= ££££££) shock

MarshaBrady Thu 17-Oct-13 20:31:27

Thanks both grin. Not with it tonight!

Evening all....Shop thank god you started new thread! I was having palpitations as we approached the end thlgrin

Linus nearly fainted when you said in public that you were going to have a Brazilian ......blow dry thlshock and that Boden dress in grey is v tempting stop it you naughty enabler and infact perfect for work and v me. Off anyone sees it in the sale let me know.....CRAP sale shopper.
Shop I like the parka and think it would suit you. I love your hair as it is and the colour is wonderful. I will try calling round for those boots, it's what I did for these
Anni exciting for your Dsd. Obv no jeans (but I wear coloured, they're ok). Coloured skinnies and top, little dresses and skirts, really nothing too revealing....she'll be sitting on the floor and bending over a lot. Washable essential. No heels....she'll trip over small children, slip on paint, squash little fingers and will be standing in playground/ on grass. But most imp, tell her not to be scared of the kids, they will love her. I hope she enjoys her experience and gets a decent teacher.

this arrived today. Ticks a lot of boxes for me, shoulder exposure, waist definition, bum coverage and a lovely colour. Don't wear cowl necks (a friend once warned me that wearers of cowl necks are "shifty" grin ) but it really works. Will wear with my black Mint Velvet skinnies (worn to MU ) and pewter cuff and accessories......need nail varnish.......dark grey or matching? QueenC if you like a halter neck you should try it.

Drywhiteplease Thu 17-Oct-13 20:54:31

<whispers DH is I tell him I raided his wallet and he paid for my hair cut? thlwink>

Drywhiteplease Thu 17-Oct-13 20:56:02

Oh and M and S brocade mini going back...don't need it and not entirely perfect.

LinusDKD Thu 17-Oct-13 21:01:00

Oh but dry I do have the 'other Brazilian' as well! wink

And my beautician is Brazilian!

LinusDKD Thu 17-Oct-13 21:02:20

Lovely colour dry!

I don't have the shoulders for a halterneck.

foxysocks Thu 17-Oct-13 21:06:54

What are you buying marsha? Have I missed something?

Cute top dry. I used to have an amazing French connection draped black halter, I wore it to death all thorough uni on nights out with gap long and lean jeans. Remember those?!

Drywhiteplease Thu 17-Oct-13 21:10:19

Foxy I used to adore long and lean jeans!... How you doing?

shopafrolic Thu 17-Oct-13 21:11:39

Fellow long & leaner here too!

foxysocks Thu 17-Oct-13 21:20:55

They were brilliant weren't they? I also used to wear with a leather zip up boob tube.

Am ok thanks dry. Will go back to docs tomorrow after reading migs post, this drug combo is just not working for me but it does feel like the bodywork I had today has released some pressure in my neck/upper back.

I can't believe your building work is nearly done, it's still in baby stages here. Plastering tomorrow. Roof and doors coming next week. We chose loo/sink/taps today, obv I went for most expensive tap in the whole place, there were no prices on display. it's some kind of gift from god, I swear.

MarshaBrady Thu 17-Oct-13 21:21:13

Still on the hunt for shearling boots Foxy! Might have a look and see if Liberty have some I can use a voucher and discount on.

I wore Levi's a lot and yes long and lean.

shopafrolic Thu 17-Oct-13 21:24:17

I have that gift too Foxy - I make cheap look cheap and can always pick the most expensive thing off a page. A definite gift. Perhaps they gave it to us free with purchase of Long & Leans!?
