I always get twitchy when the old thread is only a few from the end!

FuzzyPuffling Wed 08-May-19 14:57:52

Yay thank you cherries

I have managed to shiver over here on the first page!

Ellapaella Wed 08-May-19 15:03:09

Thanks Cherries

Special ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ For Cherries for the new shiny thread.
Thank You!

@Ella the kitchen refurb sounds sooo good

I have a Baukjen leather jacket in cream blush in my defence bought vastly reduced. I like it but slightly regret purchasing as I’m always frightened I’ll ruin it due to it’s paleness and thus remains the least worn of all my leather jackets. I also have some jersey tops from them, again sale buys. Nice thick jersey but pretty unremarkable otherwise. It is an overpriced brand.

I recommended Ghost in another thread and now lusting after some of their satin dresses, very boho and floaty but IRL not what my wardrobe needs right now...

Thank you cherries smile

laska that sounds horrible, what a pain for you. I hope things are quickly resolved.

Soy I quite like a bit of Baukjen but totally agree they are over-priced. The leather jacket sounds nice, how long ago did you buy it? I actually bought a few items from them recently but the 20% discount code didn't work. When I phoned up the next day they said there was nothing they could do so offered me a gift voucher instead angry Wouldn't surprise me if they went under tbh.

Aurora handbag has arrived so will post a picture a bit later smile

Thanks for the new thread cherries! star

And I'm struggling to see where you got the impression you looked like a sack from the black Jamie dress...you look great - though I agree the leopard one is more special. I'm kind of with soy - how many black summer dresses does one girl need... still bought it, though, in the small, as that may minimise sack issues

laska - it sounds like you're having an awful time sad Hope everything resolves soon. I assume this is the family member you've had previous Issues with, who sounds like a right PITA.

ella - oooooh, v exciting about the kitchen. Sounds wonderful - v swish! Hope all the installation goes smoothly.

I always look longingly at baukjen, but have never actually bought anything. Nothing really grabs me enough to justify the cost tbh.

Looking forward to the kimono - I got a dispatch note, but no indication of when it will arrive. Hopefully tomorrow if that's when soy's is coming. Exciting about the handbag soups! I'd love to see that "worn" too - I always seem to have trouble picturing strap length etc.

Its blooming freezing here today too - and raining. Kind of regretting putting all my winter stuff away at the weekend. I've been putting off going to the shop to get some milk all day, 'cos I'll have to take my slippers off. But then I realised I really needed some coffee, so have just braved it (cold better than black coffee IMO). Brrrrr.

Thanks for the new thread.

I have a question - what do people wear their leopard leggings with? I like them but not sure how I’d wear them?

Exciting about kitchen Ella. We’re having an extension at the moment. Stress!

Binkybix Wed 08-May-19 16:24:41

Oh yes, I purchased these. Not Hush, but thought people might be interested. Too flat to wear much, but always fancied some tattoo wings on my feet and these are an easier option!

Ellapaella Wed 08-May-19 16:26:38

@Binkybix yes it's all very stressful but it will be so worth it when it's all done - new extension sounds very exciting... hope it's going well. I have the M&S dupe leopard print leggings and wear them with the wide jersey top in forest green or a grey wide neck long tube top from phase eight. These are really the only two tops I have that work with them and I haven't worn them very often to be honest. I might wear them more in the summer with black flip flops and an oversized black or white v neck t shirt.

SoyYo Wed 08-May-19 17:00:11

@binx love the winged sandals! They made me smile. Ditto as Ella for leopard leggings but also I find that with the Hush long line vests which look a bit like a mini skirt on me (vertically challenged) I can then wear a shorter sweat on top. Today about to go to Pilates and I’m wearing a grey long vest with Hush starry leggings and a Hush turquoise sweat on top. Another week I wore the leopard leggings to Pilates with a black long Hush vest and a burgundy sweat. Any long black/grey jumper or top would work well with it.

@soups it was around 2 years ago reduced to just over £200 in their sale and got an xtra 10% off sale price too so it was a good buy and the leather is super soft but I reckon the Hush ones are more flattering (I’ll tell you when I get round to buying the navy one...with a good code I hope). Look forward to seeing your new bag!

@not you will like the Jamie. And it was a super bargain on BA, wise to go for S it’s quite stretchy material

Must dash.

neveradullmoment99 Wed 08-May-19 18:15:06

Hello everyone. Well @soyo, the kimono is due for delivery tomorrow but its coming via RM!! Anway, @Laska, oh poor you. Money brings out the VERY worst in people.

SoyYo Wed 08-May-19 18:47:08

Oh @never I’m confused now 🤣 I’m only expecting the brand Alley Hush order and the kimonos.
Maybe it’s the brand Alley that’s coming via UPS...I’ll check my emails.

neveradullmoment99 Wed 08-May-19 18:58:12

Yes, it is strange. The kimono is definitely coming tomorrow and it is definitely by Royal Mail. Its handy that i will be in.

Laska2Meryls Wed 08-May-19 18:58:55

Just signing in again.. Thanks cherries ,

Yes it is the same person, but no matter, the law is on my side and they have to spit it 50.50 with me , (rather than keep the lot which they feel is their 'moral right') .. I am ignoring the abuse as much as I can and not responding,

Anyway better things .. I am KEEPING the green wren and the blue..I reckon i will wear both and its not like I have a wardrobe of leather jackets like some people (hee hee)

Want me to change my name?, Nope. Wont. grin, I like being a Meryl..

I am getting used to DHs earrings as well.. it was a bit of a shock on a hard day ..

Winged sandals ? Have you seen Ancient Greek sandals ? they have jellies also! (and lots of other lovely sandals..) I dont own any though!!

neveradullmoment99 Wed 08-May-19 18:59:28

Maybe its cause you have ordered more than me? Maybe orders over a certain amount are through a different carrier?
Is that your hush orders from BA? That was quick. Most said late May for dispatch and it put me right off.

neveradullmoment99 Wed 08-May-19 19:00:54

Well i think you should keep it actually cause you have had a shit week.

Laska2Meryls Wed 08-May-19 19:01:53

binky I wear my leggings with my wide tops and my Ivy dresses mostly, .. and other long tops jumpers .. usually with ankle boots but yesterday with trainers..I think they are really versatile and so far the Hush ones have stood up to much Laska ill-use and many washes!

neveradullmoment99 Wed 08-May-19 19:03:02

I am so suprised they still havent a discount.
@Laska, they had loads of new stuff on PR shots btw. Must be high summer.

neveradullmoment99 Wed 08-May-19 19:04:50

Pg 17 and beyond.

Laska boo hiss to the person being a twat.
cherries thanks for new thread.
Soy you have read my mind, I was thinking it was you that had a really pretty ghost dress last summer & was going to have a little look on website later.
I think it was never who said a few days ago, that clothing seems to have got very expensive, I was gobsmacked at the baujken prices admittedly some it is very pretty, but blimey.
I dunno I’m bored with everything at the moment, maybe because I haven’t been buying anything it’s made me a bit meh & definitely a bit more wtf at the prices.

SoyYo Wed 08-May-19 19:57:23

@never you’re right! The kimono is coming RM, not UPS. And checking my BA emails I don’t see a despatch alert either. Oh dear! Am I going senile now and don’t remember if I’ve ordered anything else? So weird...I’ll report back when UPS man comes.

@len they have a rather nice dress on the sale, more mid season than summer. This one it’s bargainous:
www.ghost.co.uk/gwen-dress-60s-meadow-ditsy-dc69ak-r03
On us it’ll be well below the knee though and one of the reasons I don’t order more often from them as their lengths are for giant people.
I may end up ordering this top, love the style and print:

@laska you deserve both wrens! And I don’t know who you are referring to on leather jacket wardrobe hmmgrin

neveradullmoment99 Wed 08-May-19 20:02:03

Well its not me. I only have two grin

dontcallmelen Wed 08-May-19 20:11:43

Ooh Soy very pretty, I’m on my dry cleaners Christmas card list as I’m always getting stuff altered, it’s annoying though as it adds £ to the cost of anything, I have a really nice tailored ghost jacket & a silk dress which are years old I still wear sometimes.

Had a major clearout today & brought straight to the charity shop, so making sure I didn’t start getting stuff back out😂
I’m currently compiling a list of stuff to fill wardrobe gaps & that would go with what I already have, rather than buying random stuff indiscriminately & wasting shed loads of money, crikey I’m finally getting some sense, I do think a lot of my buying has been to try & make me happy & fill a void, which is ridiculous as it doesn’t & has left me feeling guilty & stressed about money, time to change methinks.

dontcallmelen Wed 08-May-19 20:13:10

Sorry that was a bit of an essay😳
Ooh & I only have three leather jackets, so it’s not me😂
