I like that skirt. I see that they have a pinafore in the same print. Are there sizes true to size?
@neveradullmoment99 I find Tu a bit variable. So I have a few pairs of their jeans and they are quite small so I size up. Likewise the knitwear. But tops (T shirts, Blouses etc) and dresses seem true to size. So maybe order two sizes and return one.
I know what you mean about not knowing what to wear under long cardigans! I tend to wear them over dresses instead of a jacket. Or just a long sleeved T, or short T with a thermal top or something under..depending on level of freezing-ness. I get confused with coats, as they either feel too bulky, or stick out under the bottom of the coat... I usually end up using them instead of a coat, but that does limit their usefulness. That faces T is great though, but I know it seems silly to buy something specifically for something that should be such a versatile item!
I think sainsburys is on the large side of true-to-size... sort of an m and s sizing rather than topshop! The tops seem more generous than the bottoms to me, but that could just be that my bottom is a bit more generous than it should be... (they used to be enormous. I've got size 8 tops from a few years ago that still fit me - but they've calmed down a bit since then.) I didn't see the pinafore in my store, but they had a navy cord pinafore that looked nice and a good weight cord.
I must have signed up for a weekly(?) email at some point of various recommendations...today's headlines protected species coats (among other things), and you are quoted as liking them .
You know @ella that I have still to wear my faces tee!!! I honestly keep forgetting I have it! Its in my wardrobe but its over to ones side and inbetween other things so I constantly miss it.
As for the long sabrina, I tend to wear mine over the wide jersey tops. I usually put on my skinny jeans, a longline hush vest, my wide jersey top and over that my sabrina. I kind of wear it like a coat. I have put it under my parka and it does hang down but not that much and if it the same length as my dress [ like the cassie] Its ok. I would wear it over a jumper as a coat too with a large scarf esp if jumping in and out of the car. If you don't want to wear it hanging down then what I do is wear my jacket and put it in my bag and take it to work and put it on instead of my jacket for the day. Ive worm my charcoal one a lot.
It can get cold in my class so its handy. I am also in separate building to the main school so its perfect for jumping in and out of the main building for lunch/break time.
Ive worn the olive one less but that's to be expected as its a definite colour but I absolutely love both.
Hello! Ella I blooming love that dress. I think we are similar of and shoulder and I know it would suit me down to the ground. Need to get to Sainsbury’s. Went into house of Fraser today and bought the leggings. Need to find pics of other bits I bought. Had a complete mint velvet worry. So much lovely stuff.
This is much nicer on me than the model... true to size on me and skims beautifully over my busy and cinches at the waist. Think if needs curves.
I also bought an over size cream blouse thang which looks beyond wonderful with the leggings. Might pop it on tomorrow simply because it’s lush.
My mum insisted I needed this. It’s much nicer with my pared down style than this pic shows. It’s the loveliest cosy thang ever. Unfortunately it’s my Christmas present so a few weeks until I get my paws on it.
I love that MV trapeze dress, Porpoise, been lusting after it for ages!
I love all your buys but I have to say that TopShop coat is amazing! I absolutely love that, you must post a picture when you get it at Christmas. I also have a faux fur coat coming for Christmas that my Mum bought for me when we were shopping together recently, it's a dark red one. I put it on in the shop and didn't want to take it off, she loved it as well and so got it as my Xmas present so I won't get mine until the big day either.
Then MV dress is lovely too - it actually looks quite similar in print to the Sainsburys one. That seems like a very successful shopping trip you had there!
Re cream blouse - definitely will go well with the pleather leggings. I've been wearing my cream long line cami from the summer with mine with a cardigan over the top and I think it looks fab (if I do say so myself).
Sorry for multiple posts - I bought This in Wallis yesterday to wear with the MV leggings (and coated skinnies when I get them). It's along enough to cover my bum which is essential in leggings for me.
That's lovely @ellapaella...is it nice and soft and not scratchy at all?
What size did you go for (tempted)?
Do you have a pic of you in it?
ha you read my mind! It looks lovely..I may be tempted.....
I'm in my pj's still..had a pretty sleepless night with DC as DS is going through a 'night terror' phase and won't go to bed, and ended up in with me last night, and DD was up about 5-6 times for various reasons..I had very little sleep
Taking DS to his swimming lesson a bit later, and then over to a friends for the afternoon for Christmas crafting and dinner (and wine for us!)
OH is away this weekend so I am flying solo!
I’m off to Edinburgh to meet some old work colleagues for a pre Xmas lunch. Wearing next coated leggings, wide green top (with heatgen underneath!), sparkly earrings, double star necklace, big silver bangle, fly boots, red boyfriend coat from New Look last year. Short pixie hair (blonde), big scarf, coach hobo bag.
What are the tu sizes like please? I love that dress ellapaella was wearing!
ella where are your trainers from? Love them.
Catch up in a bit, I’m still in pjs, dressing gown, socks & blanket with a box of tissues handy, still being pathetic.
Yeahy Never is back, was most discombobulated with the name change😂
