Somebody stop me! I'm loving so many things this season so I'm holding myself accountable and saying enough!
I have bought over the last 2 months
2 cashmere M&S jumpers from Ebay - one grey, one violet
Skinny distressed jeans Zara
Knitted camel midi skirt Primark
V neck camel jumper Primark
Army green skinny combats Primark
Green leopard print cami bias midi dress Zara
2 v neck t shirts Zara. grey and black
Grey linen draped top Zara
Black and cream zebra midi H&M satin skirt
Chunky waterproof white trainers
Black slouch block heel boots
Chambray blue blouse M&S sale

All for £198 so not too bad but I still didn't buy a coat but last year 's has got another year in it I'm sure - it will have to!

Enough - I am done.
What's everyone else been buying or have you been more restrained than me?

Hmmm I thought I was done too, but there are a lot of lovely colours around, I'd advise you to stay away from the Autumn wardrobe thread, too many ideas and lovely things

JMAngel1 Tue 08-Oct-19 17:43:43

Ha ha the funny thing is I posted on there on the first page saying I wasn't very excited by the upcoming style - hah!
Having said that, I don't think I got anything that was on my wish list which I posted on tbat thread. But in my defence, everything I have got is super wearable and goes with the rest of my wardrobe.
What have you bought Luxurywoman - although by your title, I don't think you wilk have been in Primark?!!

LuxuryWoman2018 Tue 08-Oct-19 17:56:12

Oh gosh, so much. I bought the Baukjen trench from the other thread and love it so much, a long, very soft black jumper from Principles. I do indeed buy bits from primark although not so much clothes but socks, and pyjamas although I did buy a lovely big scarf too.

You might have seen the Wallis utility shirt? I got in in black, a few of us discovered crossbody bags from a company called My Exquisite and although I’ve always loved a large structured bag I’m hooked on crossbodies now. Still looking for boots, All Saints have a pair I love but they are very expensive, I’m hoping for a sale.

I still need a couple of jumpers and I’d like a smart wool coat but it’s not needed as such. I have bought a couple of going out type tops too and a tortoiseshell cuff. Quite a lot really 😊

JMAngel1 Tue 08-Oct-19 18:11:11

That My Exquisite site looks dangerously good - love the satchel style x body bags and there's a ringer for the Soho bag.
I can't wear Wallis as I'm only 5ft 3 and everything swamps me.
I love All Saints too - in fact I saw a leopard print cami bias cut dress in there first which gave me the inspiration for the Zara one.

LuxuryWoman2018 Tue 08-Oct-19 18:24:20

Even Wallis petite?
I have one of the satchel bags, it’s lovely.
I love a lot of Zara stuff I see linked here or in magazines or instagram but in store I never find anything.
I’m still looking for very plain, very soft leather knee boots, the kind where the zips are very discreet.

JMAngel1 Tue 08-Oct-19 20:40:18

Alas no, any petite range makes me look shrunken - my arms and legs are wierdly long - I have a short torso so petite arms end up too short.
How about Russel & Bromley for your boots? Or check out Zalando.

I tried a nice paid of cowboy boots and a grey wool coat on in Zara today and I’m waiting for a denim dress from Sosander. I’ve also just taken delivery of the light grey fine Merino wool sweater from Uniqlo which is lovely.

I think taking into account the amount of clothes I’ve already got upstairs, I should be ok for a while. Well until the Xmas styles come out .....

LuxuryWoman2018 Wed 09-Oct-19 07:13:31

Yes I will look at Zalando for boots, I’ll keep an eye on Black Friday sales and post Christmas too. I’d like the very plain knee boots and then something a bit more statement.

LuxuryWoman2018 Wed 09-Oct-19 11:51:26

A bit like this but in leather

Runneryogi Wed 09-Oct-19 13:07:17

I paid off my student loan at last and got some birthday money so felt a bit flush. I’m not allowed anything until the spring!

I bought a navy trench coat from Comptoir des Cottoniers, a cord mini from Other Stories, printed mini from People Tree, a dungaree dress and navy linen skirt from Olive, a statement skirt from Wolf and Badger, white blouse from Sezanne and a couple of basic jersey tops from Boden.

I like to put together a capsule at the beginning of a season and update every six months so I’m trying to justify the spend that way! Must stop now...

LuxuryWoman2018 Wed 09-Oct-19 18:53:15

That’s what I’m missing! Some jersey tops for layering.

Steviestamborine Thu 10-Oct-19 07:33:10

I’ve had to replenish my wardrobe a bit, but I’m looking for a nice snuggly cardigan and I’m really stuck on shoes, I have no idea what to even look for these days. I miss the days of six shoe shops on every high street.

LuxuryWoman2018 Thu 10-Oct-19 08:15:23

I just saw Debenhams have this new collection, capsule wardrobe pieces, could be the shake up they need, I wonder what the quality is like but I like the idea

MinesaPinot Thu 10-Oct-19 09:42:31

LuxuryWoman2018 I'm just looking at the My Exquisite site and love the little Camilla crossbody bag. Have you ordered from them? Are they any good?

LuxuryWoman2018 Thu 10-Oct-19 10:07:58

Yes, several times and yes very good Minesa

MinesaPinot Thu 10-Oct-19 10:51:16

LuxuryWoman2018 Thanks. As I said, the Camilla looks lovely, and I'm also liking this, which looks very like my friend's Loewe purse..

Very good prices too, when you compare to some of the big brands

LuxuryWoman2018 Thu 10-Oct-19 11:16:43

That’s really nice @MinesaPinot I have a couple of Camila bags and I really like them, I’m a bit of a convert to the crossbody. I’ll see if I can take a picture in a bit if you like.

MinesaPinot Thu 10-Oct-19 11:22:04

Great thanks Luxury smile

LuxuryWoman2018 Thu 10-Oct-19 11:28:40

I don’t know if this will work

Deathraystare Thu 10-Oct-19 11:35:04

Wow JM Angel that is organised and a nice haul.

I went to Monsoon and saw two dresses without my nemesis (viscose). One of them had a rather velvety feel so am thinking about it. That's as far as I have got.

I am thinking of getting more cardis. It has to be freezing for me to feel cold but a cardi is sometimes necessary. My Primarni ones have suffered through accidentally being put through the tumble dryer.

historysock Thu 10-Oct-19 13:44:30

Think I just would like one more midi dress, a pair of knee high boots (day time ones) and a puffa jacket I've got my eye on in mango for watching kids football in.
I also would like a black pinafore dress actually.
(The boots probably won't happen as the only ones I really like are from &otherstories and a bit too expensive)
So not done at all grin

Steviestamborine Thu 10-Oct-19 15:11:57

I was nicely surprised by monsoon when I popped in last week, I don’t usually think to look but there was some nice things and lovely colours.

LuxuryWoman2018 Thu 10-Oct-19 19:58:20

I'll have a look in monsoon tomorrow and debenhams I think, but I'm not spending much more this year.
