We have dusted down our Gigis and boyfriend shirts. We are desperately trying to avoid melting in MMFs. We are planning capsule holiday wardrobes. We are getting ready for summer gorgeousness......come and join us for as we wait for the temperatures to soar.....

Continuing from here

So....when we left 77:
Blingy was trying to avoid looking 5
Liberty needs pearls of wisdom wink about pearls

Thanks Dry
I had no inspiration this time.
Love a shiny new thread.

DryWhiteagainW Wed 31-May-17 20:12:29

Gosh with my dodgy WIFI and IPad first generation that is about to die that was hard work.

Have I told you all about my latest fab film?
Marsha, Mara and all other foodies.....*Burnt*.....ticks every box for me:

Bradley Cooper
Bradley Cooper in chef whites
Bradley Cooper cooking
Bradley Cooper talking French it's just too much
Marcus W inspired dishes works of art
No grossly murders

Great stuff

DryWhiteagainW Wed 31-May-17 20:13:25

"Grizzly murders"!!!!!!

DryWhiteagainW Wed 31-May-17 20:14:58

Oh bloody hell.......I types "boyfriend shirts" instead of "boyfriend shOrts"......I swear my iPad has got it in for me........

shopafrolic Wed 31-May-17 20:16:40

Have any of you seen Alexa Chung's new line? Not my taste at all...... wondered what others thought?

DryWhiteagainW Wed 31-May-17 20:16:52

"I types"??? Now I've gone all Westcountry........<slaps head>

Thanks for new thread Dry

I like that bag Lib

Amazing McQueen dress Blingy

Shop I've got stripe envy. Good buys. I had a look on The Outnet but frugality kicked in and I've decided to reign in the spending.

DryWhiteagainW Wed 31-May-17 20:21:02

I think I'll order the pink and red striped trouser suit........

libertydoddle Wed 31-May-17 20:25:06

Dry you are hilarious - thanks for the new thread smile.

Blingy I haven't decided at all yet re pearls - going to go look at some I think. Also while browsing jewellery I keep getting distracted grin. Now emeralds are appealing to me...

Not keen on that Alexa stuff at first glance Shop. Can't imagine anyone looking great in the oversized suits.

Blingygolightly Wed 31-May-17 21:43:28

grin Dry

Lib, I can see the lust appeal! I actually don't own any emeralds though have always wanted to...sly look at dh.wink

Shop, the Alexa Chung collection left me cold. It sort of reminded me of the Samantha Cameron Cefinn collection, i.e. Something s obviously designed for her body shape and no one elses!

MarshaBrady Wed 31-May-17 22:15:53

Great stuff Dry thanks and yes loved that film! Such good food. Even checked the credits think it was Marcus Wareing? who acted as a consultant on it. And always love the Bradley

I was going to ask about the Alex Chung stuff Shop. Not keen on it at all from what I've seen. She's got a good start by stocking at Matches etc but wonder how it will go

Lib not sure on pearls

thanks for the new thread Dry thanks

hmmm, not sure about the AC collection, not for me i don't think

queencerulean Thu 01-Jun-17 08:46:05

You all know my thoughts on AC-she's seriously overated and I just don't get the appeal.

Had a lovely afternoon yesterday for dh birthday and off to work today. It's quite nice just chilling getting ready without screaming at the dc to get ready for school.

Not a huge fan of emeralds. I have a ring that's been passed down to me through dh family although jewellers don't seem sure whether they're real or just good fakes. To find out it would have to be sent off and I'm not that arsed about it. I also have a tiepin with 3 smaller stones and at one point I was going to have them all redone into a necklace but I realised I probably wouldn't wear it much.

We're away on Saturday night for dh birthday and I decided that I 'needed' a new top. Will link later once I've collected.

Everyonelovessparkles Thu 01-Jun-17 14:13:18

Who did you day was in the film dry? Was it Bradley cooper? grin

I agree with you all regarding the AC collection. Some stuff didn't really seem that different from what you can get else where (denim skirt, shorts etc) whereas some stuff was truly hideous - that striped trouser suit hmm

It's my DHs birthday tomorrow so we're out for dinner and have a night in a hotel in town. Am looking forward to it. Not sure what to wear as I saw that it might be tipping down tomorrow evening. Typical.

FedupNagging Thu 01-Jun-17 15:28:36

Back from a few days away - weather is better here at home!

Thanks for the new thread Dry. Gorgeous Whistles dress you linked on the last thread.

Waves to Topaz, lovely to see you back. Nice Esprit top. Shame you can't make the MU, it would have been great to catch up.

Not keen on the AC collection; it all seems a bit too try hard and definitely not a style I can really wear anyway. I did like the denim skirt though.

Ootd is a slate linen knee length dress with these wedges

DryWhiteagainW Thu 01-Jun-17 17:49:28

Another fantastic day oop north. I can't believe it's taken me until a couple of years ago to wear shorts....pathetic all these body hang ups hmm

DryWhiteagainW Thu 01-Jun-17 17:49:55

or maybe I'm in denial

shopafrolic Thu 01-Jun-17 18:00:20

You're not in denial Dry - you have a banging body, stupid to have hidden it!
I've been at London Zoo today with miniShop. Had such a lovely day. Off to North Norfolk tomorrow so am in packing hell!

Dreamqueen Thu 01-Jun-17 18:09:29

Dry. I bet you look amazing in shorts.

maradesbois Thu 01-Jun-17 19:07:24


Thanks for new thread Dry, love the opener! Must check out Burnt!

Everyone that sounds lovely, enjoy your night in town.

Shop north Norfolk in this beautiful weather sounds like the perfect holiday Alan Partridge country

Am with the general consensus on Alexa C. I quite like a lot of the clothes actually (am with you on the denim skirt fedup) but wouldn't buy them, not convinced at all by her design credentials.

Am exhausted, so busy at work, am slumped in a corner of the bus home wondering why I promised to make dh artichoke risotto for dinner. The biggest pita vegetable to prepare.

Went to Bella Freud sample sale this morning but not inpressed, was a bunfight for the classic jumpers like 1970 which I didn't want anyway and the rest was just the dregs. Holding out for Charlotte Olympia in a few weeks time, hoping to get some sandals and a clutch or two.
