I went all round Oxford St M+S yesterdat 3 times and couldn't find a single nice cardi. Neither of then were in there.

codswallop Tue 02-Oct-07 09:02:08

i think there stock turnover is a lto faster than of yore

did oyu haev fun?

FrannyandZombie Tue 02-Oct-07 09:04:22

yes, my god I walked miles. Was very frustrating when you know there is nice stuff in there though and you have to trawl through 3 million bits of crap

I don't think I am cut out for the really big stores, it takes too long

and there were no nice cardies. not anywhere

codswallop Tue 02-Oct-07 09:05:00

colour was balck wasnt it?
di you lookat malrorys debenhams one?

FrannyandZombie Tue 02-Oct-07 09:05:51

I did find ONE nice little shrug thing in Covent Garden M+S (tiny store) and thought I will wait till I get to Oxford St and see if there is anything else. When i got there I realised the little shrug had been so nice I wanted to get it, looked all over, 3 million granny cardies and no nice little shrug. Blah.

codswallop Tue 02-Oct-07 09:05:57

lik this

Nbg Tue 02-Oct-07 09:06:47


have come to the decision that everything on the marks and spencers site that looks shit is ok in rl and everything that looks good is shit in rl.

FrannyandZombie Tue 02-Oct-07 09:07:31

oh I have got something that will do now, a jersey swingy thing from New Look, which is nice, and some shitty cardies from

somewhere so bad I dare not speak its name

they are just not partic nice, however I need cardies. Monsoon prices scare me so I didn't go in

did look in Debenhams. God I looked everywhere

ok am orf ot have hari done and meet mate

FrannyandZombie Tue 02-Oct-07 09:08:47

that Monsoon one much too fitted, I want something to wear with trapeze tops

got a greenish one and a purplish one, but realise now they look awful with skirts - volume everywhere, I look vast

so god knows what to do with skirts

FrannyandZombie Tue 02-Oct-07 09:09:45

cod that one's nice

they don't actually have any of these in the shops, they are just figments of the web designers imagination

codswallop Tue 02-Oct-07 13:58:35

waht you need to do is ring your lcoal store wiht the code adn they order it in

no delivery charges

ScaryScaryNight Tue 02-Oct-07 14:03:05

codswallop Tue 02-Oct-07 14:08:03

ScaryScaryNight Tue 02-Oct-07 14:11:53
