i am too scared to go to clothes shops atm. i have no clue what is going on with all the crazy tunic/maxi dress action.

nailpolish Tue 03-Jul-07 16:17:54

i am wanting a waistcoat just now

either find me a nice one or talk some sense into me

sweetheart Tue 03-Jul-07 16:32:06

oh I like the waistcoat look too - Have had a couple over recent years but dh doesn't really like them. I know topshop have lots in atm.

i can't wait to re-enter the world of Normal Clothes

The weather's making me give up on summer clothes and want to go straight to autumn ones. What's going to be in for autumn/winter? Anyone know?

DrNortherner Tue 03-Jul-07 16:35:42

I bought some lovely lepoard print sandals at the weekend, very high and very sexy. Am out for divver tonight will wear with beige capri pants and brown v neck tight fitted long top with brown belt.

What do we think of maxi dresses?

My collegaue saw Alex Curran at Heathrow aiprt at weekend, said she is ROUGH in flesh.

JackieNo Tue 03-Jul-07 16:36:51

New shoes etc sounds great.

I can't get my head round maxi dresses - only for the very tall and willowy, I reckon. I'd look pants in them (short and fat).

Have you noticed how everyone wears summer clothes despite the weather. Summer dresses, sandals and cagoules. Such an English look. I like it.

TroyMcClure Tue 03-Jul-07 16:39:03

i had a tank top last winter
very useful tbh

DrNortherner Tue 03-Jul-07 16:39:17

I tried some on at weekend and looked stoopid. Am only 5'4'' though.......

sweetheart Tue 03-Jul-07 16:39:45

DarrellRivers Tue 03-Jul-07 16:40:26

yes the maxi dress only work for tall people.
i would look like a cath kidston tent in one (5f3.5)

TroyMcClure Tue 03-Jul-07 16:40:30

one thought

status Quo

BBBleedingGumsMurphy Tue 03-Jul-07 16:40:58

those topshop ones would give an odd nork display I think

TroyMcClure Tue 03-Jul-07 16:41:28

int eh boden preview theres a knittedy one that looks more proimising

BBBleedingGumsMurphy Tue 03-Jul-07 16:42:30

this is good and in sale and stretch

BBBleedingGumsMurphy Tue 03-Jul-07 16:43:06

woman wearing it is a bit 'atomic kitten' though.

JackieNo Tue 03-Jul-07 16:46:34

I see waistcoats and think of Flashdance.

DarrellRivers Tue 03-Jul-07 16:48:11

is flashdance kevin whatshisface or jenifer whatshername?
the religious one where dance is banned or the welder who waves her bottom in hte air lots to get into dance skool

JackieNo Tue 03-Jul-07 16:49:38

The welder - where she goes for a date with whoever the love interest is, and takes off her tuxedo, to reveal a backless waistcoat. Seminal moment, I think.
