just don't bother trying to flog it to us
Pauline Fowler called, she wants her sweater back

LordPalmerston Wed 02-Apr-14 10:58:51

bhs called, can they have their tabard back?

ChablisLover Wed 02-Apr-14 11:02:26


That jumper will not do anyone any favours.

The dress isn't so bad though.

ChablisLover Wed 02-Apr-14 11:04:42

Now you've got me looking at their website

Some lovely things - will wait till sale and not use the excuse I'm lying in bad ill to cheer myself up! ( already bought a whistles skirt to do that grin)

ChablisLover Wed 02-Apr-14 11:05:42

Only for the tall and skinny??

floofyapogo Wed 02-Apr-14 11:53:52

Why can no one stand up straight any more? sad

Quangle Wed 02-Apr-14 12:04:40

That seems to be the fashion for models - they all stand like this now - or vaguely knock-kneed like this:

Jess Cartner-Morley stands like this every single week in the Guardian:

grin at the BHS tabard. This:
is quite Liza Minnelli - the later years.

I like the black and white dress. Straight

OnlyLovers Wed 02-Apr-14 18:04:20

I like that colour-block dress! Would be a piece of piss to throw on if you were in a rush in the morning with tights or leggings and a long-sleeved top underneath. Converse, ballet flats, ankle boots with a bit of a heel ...

<<warms up credit card>>

DISCLAIMER I am tall and quite slim.

threepiecesuite Wed 02-Apr-14 18:11:04

I am tall and slim. I think Great Plains is cut for large boobs though, no good for me.

ParkingFred Wed 02-Apr-14 19:46:47

I am wearing these far too often.

I like lots of their stuff but need to size down; it's all massive.

Annietheacrobat Wed 02-Apr-14 19:49:40

Parking Fred - just ordered the leopard print skinnies! Thanks very much

ParkingFred Wed 02-Apr-14 19:51:14

They're gorgeous! I get loads of comments about them.

Shame I bought them at £65 & they're now £29..

Standingonlego Wed 02-Apr-14 20:05:46

Lots of lovely things on there - how does the sizing come up? I am a busty 10 blush

LordPalmerston Wed 02-Apr-14 20:28:41

this is the dress I like

ChablisLover Wed 02-Apr-14 20:48:11

Parking - they are lovely jeans.

Lordpalmerston- that's a gorgeous dress too

Ujjayi Wed 02-Apr-14 21:50:00

The cut of those colour block dresses isn't too bad but the colours are dire.

Am tempted by those leopard jeans. Am 43...mutton?? hmm

indyandlara Thu 03-Apr-14 10:13:56

What do you all do if you are size 10, small but with hefty thighs? Love lots of things on that site but they look pretty short. Tight? Leggings? Boots or shoes? Am clueless but panicking about impending better weather when I can't wear long boots all the time!

OnlyLovers Thu 03-Apr-14 12:40:48

I like the colours! I'd totally wear the neutral and black one. Is my style radar WAY out of whack? [worried]

CointreauVersial Thu 03-Apr-14 13:13:33

(mustn't click links, mustn't click links)

I like Great Plains apart from the lack of free returns, but I can't justify any more spurious purchases at the moment.

Cereal0ffender Thu 03-Apr-14 13:32:02

Grayson perry on dress down friday

LordPalmerston Thu 03-Apr-14 17:27:37

I saw that too. Gopping. It must be is - boden have something similar. No idea with thighs. Lose weight or bare them and be proud ?

LordPalmerston Thu 03-Apr-14 17:28:11

Oh you're size ten. Fuck it. Show em. Stop apologising for your body

OnlyLovers Thu 03-Apr-14 21:56:35

grin at Grayson Perry.
