Hello everyone.

I was seen, and read some threads similar to this, however I was wondering whether anyone could give me some advice, it would be much appreciated smile

I have long been a 'fan' of the posh / middle class fashion look e.g. long hair, joules, white stuff ect. I was wondering what staples you would suggest purchasing in order to achieve this look and lifestyle e.g. I am looking into buying a barbour coat, once I can get to the shops (currently recovering from an illness at the moment, and part of this post is get some advice before I update my wardrobe to make myself feel a bit better) Advice on where to shop / eat and act would be great too smile

Any tips / advice to help me achieve this look / lifestyle would be greatly appreciated. No negative comments please.

Thanks all! smile

When you say lifestyle do you mean activities?

So, "no negative comments please" and Vix thinks it's appropriate to say "that style is awful?"
Well done!

Joules, White Stuff etc?

You seem to know the places already. Or are you looking for cheaper versions?

Don't know about the OP but I'd be interested in the cheaper versions. Want to start spending money on myself instead of the DC for a change. I like this style but don't quite have boden/white stuff/ joules budget!

Ah I know what you mean I like that look too , not quite sure what I mean by lifestyle though

realises I have nothing to add hmm

Where to eat?! Surely just eat where you like the food?? And the best way to 'act' is by being yourself.

Well why not embrace who you are?
Dont be someone you arent imo.
Most people dont set out to look middle class posh look.
I buy what i like and dont think of wanting 'a look' really.
Be confident in who you are and dress for your body shape and lifestyle.

You can look on Ebay and get the clothes for around half the price they are when new.

Advice on where to eat and act too??????

onepieceoflollipop Sat 02-May-15 19:42:19

I am not totally clear what you are asking, however Debenhams do their 'Mantaray' range and some of that is like White stuff but for a bit less £££

Don't hold your knife like a pencil? I think you are making this thread up. It has wind up written all over it.

Stitchintime1 Sat 02-May-15 19:43:27

Eat polenta?

YouMakeMyHeartSmile Sat 02-May-15 19:43:51

Don't pick your nose in public. Swish your hair lots. Is that the sort of advice you're after?

Assuming it's not a wind up... Lots of top brands have outlet stores / online - sign up for email alerts for clearance sales for significant reductions in original price

What an odd thread. I wear joules and white stuff but am the opposite of posh or well put together. Their stuff is quite frumpy actually. What sorts of activities do you like op?

stuckonchapterone Sat 02-May-15 19:45:03

I thought this thread would attract some negative comments, let me address them.

1) I don't set out to be something I'm not, I just love the style and attitude, and would love to therefore adopt it into my life.

2) I know the clothing brands, but what specific clothing items would you suggest purchasing.This can be a particular item / style of clothing garment ect.

I just want to pull off that posh girl / middle class vibe. I've gone through a horrific time recently with my health, and really need that boost. Hence whyI specifically stated no negative comments...

stuckonchapterone Sat 02-May-15 19:45:49

Also, Vix... Thats the style I like. Please be respectful, I would never criticise what someone likes ect.

Stitchintime1 Sat 02-May-15 19:45:58

But clothes and attitude are two different things.

stuckonchapterone Sat 02-May-15 19:46:29

And yes, by lifestyle I mean activities smile

Stitchintime1 Sat 02-May-15 19:46:45

i guess one of those gilet things. And some flattish boots. That sort of distressed leather look. A statement necklace. Little cardigan.

Googlers123 Sat 02-May-15 19:47:23

I'm sorry you've had a hard time but asking how to act to adopt a posh girl lifestyle is going to attract negative comments
