Can't get the link to work on my phone but Catch Kidston has a navy Fitted cardigan with a bold teapot print.It really caught my eye. They had it in their window paired with a knee length full skirt in navy with bold polka dots.

Does it sound a bit crazy? I am very stressed at work so it might be the first sign of an imminent breakdown.

Is it this one?

I like bold prints but this might be a bit too bold even for me! I suppose paired with a plain skirt it might look OK...

this one? I love a bit of quirk but I'm not a fan of it, I'm afraid. The jumper version is a marginally better, possibly. The neckline would do nowt for me though.

Teapot print cheapie dress? Teapot blouse? wink

No!!! You will look like a toddler in it!

Very jolly! You can do better.

Sorry for disappearing. Thanks for the advice. Yes, ×Curls×, that was the one. I can see that I might look like a toddler. Thankfully I had enough sense to wait and not buy impulsively.

The teapot cheapie tea dress is nice however. And not remotely crazy.

Don't do it, cucumber! Have a gin and tonic instead.

You might get away with that print on pyjamas but both on daytime clothes.

everyone will sing I'm a little teapot at you

be prepared

I want to like it, but I don't. The print is too big. Love the teapot dress though.

NorbertDentressangle Wed 05-Feb-14 19:25:06

Hell, no.

Don't do it!

I quite like the teapot design, but not for a cardi. Pjs yes, or a full 50s style skirt maybe, or a tea towel. I don't really like print on a cardi, it feels wrong.

It's not THAT bonkers though, don't worry!

"She has been feeling the strain lately..."

"Yes, but that cardi... OMG"

yes the dress is kooky cute, the cardi is just odd.

Cucumberscarecrow Wed 05-Feb-14 19:49:30

Ha! That is a resounding no. I'm glad I asked here and not in AIBU.

I feel it is only fair to say it is nicer in real life than in the photo but still has huge teapots going on so, no, I am over it. Thanks for saving me sixty quid and my dignity.

Glad you saw sense before spending the money and then seeing a thread on here along the lines of "OMG! I've just seen a grown woman in the most hideous cardigan ever. Was she wearing it as a bet?"

Shapeless. Looks like a smock for a toddler's painting session. Holy smokes!

I'm assuming you are over the age of 7, if so, it will not be a good look on you.

It's a bit Jean off Eastenders. I quite like a quirky print but even I recoiled.

"a bit Jean off Eastenders" - yes! grin
