It's £200 though (got a 10% off discount code).

Would you spend this much on a shirt? OH being no help at all!

PurplePen Sun 19-Mar-17 20:53:35

Yes I'd spend that on a silk shirt, but not that shirt.

ScarletFever Sun 19-Mar-17 20:54:17

i wouldnt ( i also dont like it)

but then i dont spend huge amounts on single items of clothing - i think it looks quirky, but not expensive - maybe primarky (but i guess in primani it would be polyester and not silk)

WilburIsSomePig Sun 19-Mar-17 20:54:46

I love it.

YouWereRight Sun 19-Mar-17 20:54:48

I wouldn't, but I don't have £200 to spend on a shirt. But if I did, I would bit that one.

Didn't Holly Willerby wear one similar on This Morning, and the Mail called her a kids TV presenter.

ProseccoBitch Sun 19-Mar-17 20:54:48

No. But then I couldn't bring myself to spend £200 on any single item of clothing.

SerialReJoiner Sun 19-Mar-17 20:55:59

No. They could have at least cut the fabric so the rainbows weren't cut in half at the shoulders. I would expect a very high level of detail in something with such a high pricetag.

But i would never spend that much on anything other than a wedding dress, so there's that.

DavetheCat2001 Sun 19-Mar-17 20:56:06

hmm..thing is style wise it's very 'me'. I could see myself wearing it lots.

I guess I wondered if £200 was obscene for a silk shirt.

DavetheCat2001 Sun 19-Mar-17 20:57:13

Thanks for your views though chaps grin

Much more useful than OH!

KoolKoala07 Sun 19-Mar-17 20:57:52

I love it. Would have to seriously consider the price tag though

BoBaraMoMara Sun 19-Mar-17 20:58:36

It's not obscene amount.

I wouldn't buy that shirt. I'd look like an eedjit and my friends would probably arrange an intervention due to concern.

PurplePen Sun 19-Mar-17 20:59:10

If you'd wear it lots then buy it, cost per wear it'll be worth it.

Yes - I couldn't put my finger on it but That's what I don't like about it - as a PP pointed out, for that money you'd expect the cut around the shoulders to not disrupt the pattern.

Foldedtshirt Sun 19-Mar-17 20:59:11

Up above the streets and houses, rainbow climbing high, Everyone can see it smiling over the sky
Is that you Bungle?

DavetheCat2001 Sun 19-Mar-17 20:59:16

Yeah, it's pricey I know.

I guess I could just see me getting a lot of wear out of it.

Actually I'm trying to justify buying something that I know is expensive and I don't technically need!

DavetheCat2001 Sun 19-Mar-17 21:01:54

What think you of this one?:

MyGastIsFlabbered Sun 19-Mar-17 21:01:54

I love it but there's no way I could spend that much on a shirt.

binday Sun 19-Mar-17 21:02:03

If you really like it, then definitely buy it. I have a couple of more expensive pieces that I treasure and get so much joy out of wearing.

FWIW, I think it's lovely and if I had any spare money (and didn't have a huge baby bump) then I would be snapping it up too!

pictish Sun 19-Mar-17 21:04:00

Oooh I like the rainbow shirt. I wouldn't spend £200 on it because I haven't got that sort of budget but if I did....

pictish Sun 19-Mar-17 21:05:23

Ok but no to the flamingos for the simple reason that it looks like something you could buy in ASDA for a fraction of the price.

TeamRick Sun 19-Mar-17 21:05:48

I like the flamingo one better! That's lovely!

PurplePen Sun 19-Mar-17 21:07:11

No, the flamingo one looks cheap.

DavetheCat2001 Sun 19-Mar-17 21:09:34

Ok, well I might order the rainbow one, and see whether it looks worth the £££ in the flesh, and if not it can go back.

Bloomed Sun 19-Mar-17 21:10:44

Agree they both look cheap, rainbow one looks shoddily put together.

Crispbutty Sun 19-Mar-17 21:11:46

I wouldn't as I'm so messy I know I would ruin it in no time by snagging it or spilling grease on it.

I love the pattern but not keen on the bow. And I think it would be better with tailored trousers or skirt rather than jeans.

Babymamamama Sun 19-Mar-17 21:12:36

It doesn't look worth the money. Colours too garish imo.
