My jeans are still bust and have not found replacement. What the ruddy hell do you wear to go out to dinner with friends if it is not a birthday or something and you have got no jeans?

Sheherazadethegoat Thu 16-Aug-07 19:08:35

Franny - I picked up this catalogue and saw this skirt and thought of you!
ichi skirt

FrannyandZooey Fri 17-Aug-07 22:22:11

Oh man! I like that skirt. I like it that people I don't know pick up catalogues and think of me. Hoorah

Cod yes, I am v funny shape as may have been mentioned and find it a trial to get jeans to fit. Also they are so dull and everyone wears them and there are just too many nice skirts in the world to wear jeans all day.

I wore a b / w A-line sundress with some trousers underneath and a little cropped cardi thing

I think you will always be associated in th collective mumsnet consciousness with colourful skirts - as in "that's a really nice F&Z skirt".
