Phase Eight

My mum had exactly the same problem. In the end she had something made. It cost a fortune! Including her hat and shoes it was the same amount as my wedding dress! Hope you have more luck.

Coast have some nice jackets & skirts... might be a bit pricey though.

Dont like phase eight - sorry

kitsandbits Thu 13-Sep-07 19:20:04

We don't have a fortune ... just £120 grin

MrsBadger Thu 13-Sep-07 19:20:12

too frilly? insufficiently frilly? too frumpy?

kitsandbits Thu 13-Sep-07 19:20:42

GreatAuntieWurly Thu 13-Sep-07 19:21:24

MrsBadger Thu 13-Sep-07 19:21:36

hmm
I covet Phase 8 stuff

what kind of thing does she wear normally?

SugaryBits Thu 13-Sep-07 19:25:15

something like this with a bolero jacket?

kitsandbits Thu 13-Sep-07 19:25:55

She usually wears casual stuff ... jeans ect

but obviously as shes the MOTB she wants some thing special,

that dress is nice wurly - but a bit plain

BobbyGrantycal Thu 13-Sep-07 19:26:27

anything in next directory occasions sections?

GreatAuntieWurly Thu 13-Sep-07 19:31:20

pointydog Thu 13-Sep-07 19:32:52

I'd wait until the shops get a bit more winter occasion wear in stock. It's all a bit non-descript at the moment.
