Thanks for new thread Dry.

Sorry for being AWOL, I just got back from hols at the weekend. Was expecting it to feel all autumnal but it doesn't yet.

Big hugs Shop. Big hugs.

There is a poet called Rumi who said Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation. Your dad will always be with you. X

Shop huge hugs, even when you know it's coming it still hits you like a train flowers

Big hug Shop thinking of you flowers

You’re all lovely.
I have finally found my dream pair of trousers and an Volumateur Artistique Cabaret Premiere 01 ink{ excellent new mascara}
miniShop is finally settling at his new school, they are being wonderful with everything that is going on. Will report back on funeral dresses shortly, there must be a lurker somewhere who may be interested.
The other thing I have loved wearing recently is the Z&V trainers I bought in the sale, really comfortable and different from the norm.
Oh and having told you that Veja trainers are super uncomfortable my black ones finally softened down and when we went to Brighton I link{,20/3278514385\Fell in love with these}
The guys in offspring said two pairs of longer socks (rather than trainer ones) to start off with and sure enough, all good now.

Nooo, Dry please don't mention the c word - too early!

thanks for you Shop

What are you all wearing at the moment? It's a little chilly but sun is out and I'm not ready for opaques or boots quite yet so wearing crops, stans and l/s jumper but have chilly ankles!

shopafrolic Wed 18-Sep-19 19:59:24

Chilly ankles here too. School run attire, skinny jeans, trainers and Etre Cecile sweatshirt today. 8 degrees at drop off, 18 at pick up. Tricky.

DryWhiteagainW Wed 18-Sep-19 22:36:10

Oh my ankles are still out. Mixture of ankle grazer trousers, loafers and tops (thank god!) and dresses with opaques (after bare leg freezing on Monday ).....too early for boots but they’ll come out any day soon.

Never to early to mention Christmas .... you all know me! 97 days to go!

Shop I love your new Vera trainers. So glad minishop is settling in xxxx

DryWhiteagainW Wed 18-Sep-19 22:38:01

this jacket arrived and is a keeper, will be good for work and with jeans too. I need a black and white fitted long sleeved t shirt now, and similar jacket in red.

flowers for Shop

I've ordered the mascara that Shop linked. Its arriving tomorrow. i'm excited.

I need new trainers bit don't want to spend a small fortune on them. Any suggestions please?

shopafrolic Thu 19-Sep-19 07:28:49

Let me know what you think of the mascara Dream. I think it is amazing - especially for the £££.
Trainers - I always go back to Stan Smiths - pure white.

Hello all

Shop, all the flowers for you.

Thought I'd report back on my Stitch Fix delivery.

I booked it for Monday as a post holiday treat, but they only dispatched on Monday, so I received it yesterday. As I'd expected it before, I cheated and had a look what they'd sent me on the website, so I knew what I was getting. Spoiler alert, I didn't keep anything. I gave the stylist LOADS of info and I feel like she tried really hard to get me, but I'm just too much of a picky shopper grin. Everything was pretty good but not quite right. I would definitely recommend it though, the experience was really fun (cost £10 as I sent it all back) and I got a little card with a personal message and styling ideas for all the items. I think a lot of Voguettes would enjoy it too.

Of course in the 3 weeks since I ordered the box, I've been doing loads of new in browsing and have seen several things I want to try lol. But I am being good and trying to make a list of outfits I want to wear this A/W (work and casual) before I go filling any gaps.

Thanks Blair and all of you for the good vibes coming my way

Weird day today - went and registered DF's death and then asked DM what she wanted to do and she asked me to take her shopping, cue 3 hours of her looking round and spending over £400 in the local huge M&S. Felt all kinds of wrong shopping but she seemed to really enjoy it so I guess it's ok.
She has bought me this coat for my birthday in November. It is plastic as you like but looks fab on and the colour is PERFECT.

So my fun fashion quest in amongst all of this hideousness is to ask you all to look our for a bright / cobalt blue sweater for me. Maybe slightly chunky, or with a high neck. Something a bit on trend shape wise as opposed to my standard crew neck cashmere. £100 ish? Keep your eyes peeled Voguettes.
Dream how is the mascara? I am SO impressed with it. Will definitely repeat buy.

I quite like this....
