S&B rule breaking

(101 Posts)

So today I broke the ultimate S&B rule and had a mum bob hair cut and I also bought a pair of sketchers for a city break 🙈

Anyone else want to confess their fashion faux pas??

I have recently started to wear navy and black at the same time

I cut my own hair

i am the ultimate rebel, i wear what i want, when i want and i don't care if it doesn't match or that i haven't 'properly accessorised it' nor do i care if someone else thinks i'm too old to wear it. Oh and I have long hair, almost to my waist and i am over 30 shock

That's cool and Frenchified (actual real word), no confession there.

I have a gorgeous Hugo Boss silk shirt with stars on it. I wear it with stripy socks because it makes me feel like a clown grin

@Count foso Channeling Mr Tumble Chic! Who knows... A la Justin could be the next big look wink

LittleWingSoul Wed 21-Mar-18 00:31:25

Oh and mine is owning only one jumper I really like as it is 100% cotton and a good fit and then trawling ebay to find it in lots of other colours and buying them all. At least it is French Connection, so a bit of street cred!

@onenighttime... is Long hair over 30 deemed a faux pas?! I had no idea blush

I didn't grow my hair out grey gracefully. I did it disgracefully with a full on badgerstripe that I wore in pigtails and French braids.

LittleWingSoul Wed 21-Mar-18 00:44:45

@Sitranced That is awesome! I am also hoping to achieve the cruella deville badger stripe. Got a few greys in the right spot for it so far.

ferrier Wed 21-Mar-18 00:45:35

My hair is also long, down to my waist and I'm over 50.
I wear bra straps that show and white bras under white t-shirts.
But the biggest one is I don't believe in bra intervention. Complete cobblers 😅

Tiedie Wed 21-Mar-18 06:22:06

Visible panty lines. Why can't people see I'm wearing knickers under my trousers?

I'm totally with you on this one, it's just another stick to beat us with.

Floisme Wed 21-Mar-18 07:06:29

I wear things the second - and third - time around.

I don't throw out clothes if I haven't worn them for a year.

I don't care if I look cross.

I have never had my eyebrows threaded.

HildaZelda Wed 21-Mar-18 10:39:18

I'm almost 40 (well, 38) and having had a pixie style cut for almost 20 years, I'm now letting it grow. Apparently it's supposed to be the other way around.

AnaViaSalamanca Wed 21-Mar-18 18:34:51

I am short and I wear maxi skirts and dresses all the time (and I look good in them, I think)

black with navy
gold jewellery
tall boots with shinnies
sometimes no bra (even though DD boobs)
nude tights

AnneLovesGilbert Wed 21-Mar-18 18:37:23

I cut my own fringe. Is that frowned upon?

BexleyRae Wed 21-Mar-18 18:40:52

I'm also 38 and growing out my pixie crop. I didn't know this was against the rules. But to be fair I'm always cutting it and then growing it
I wear leggings with dresses

Laska5772 Wed 21-Mar-18 18:41:09

I bleach my own hair . white white.. Dont care. (its v short).. I am also over 60 which is a fashion faux pas in itself .. (oh and I wear a lot of Hush and also Boden and Seasalt )

Laska5772 Wed 21-Mar-18 18:41:51

I wear leggings with dresses also !!

MrsMoastyToasty Wed 21-Mar-18 18:44:26

I look like a 50 year old woman. (I am a 50 year old woman )

70isaLimitNotaTarget Wed 21-Mar-18 18:55:33

I buy a lot of M&S clothes except my Next jeans which are bootcut.

Bootcut I tell yah! With chelsea boots grin

And I don't wear make-up but I'm bloody gorgeous .

WarmFunKindStrong Wed 21-Mar-18 19:05:00

grin My sort of fashionistas...You all sound fab...

duckling84 Wed 21-Mar-18 19:13:01

I don't like 100% cotton clothing. I like a bit of synthetic material in my jumpers.
I cut my own hair
Thick bra strap under thin cami straps (I'd love thin bra straps but apparently at a 32G I need thick ones)

BickeringPrimate Wed 21-Mar-18 19:13:56

I have always worn bootcut jeans blush

I dont follow fashion, just wear what feels comfortable, i stopped dyeing my hair and dont always wear makeup. I have no idea whats in fashion!

TeaAddict235 Wed 21-Mar-18 19:22:26

I wear dungaree dresses with stripy tops and dms. It's my signature off work look.

I love patterned tights and have been known to combine the dungaree dresses with the tights. DS 1 says that I look cool.

I've worn socks with Mary Jane shoes and they were green socks and brown shoes. #dont care

Tisgrand Wed 21-Mar-18 19:49:03

I wear leggings most of the year and wont be giving them up any time soon. I wear them with long jumpers/t-shirts, and with tunics - this is a particular no-no on here. Someone on another thread said that she finds "that the women who do wear them are the ones that really shouldn't. Not a good look." Well mine will have to be prised off my cold dead body. Judge away!
