Thank you @Laska2Meryls!

Thanks for new thread! I caved and bought the graphic yoke jumper when it appeared in a small (oat/charcoal) - and got a Xmas bauble as well grin

Saurus72 Mon 02-Nov-20 17:06:11

Oooh @Spottyegg I’ve been looking at the gorgeous painted baubles, very tempted!

I bought this which I’m really pleased with

Hello fellow Toast addicts. I've been following the threads and have just bought this dress, although nowhere to wear it at the moment. It does look nice though!

I am now eying up the Christmas decorations.

Ellapaella Mon 02-Nov-20 17:57:59

@MrsCat1 I love that dress, and I really love how they've styled it with the dark red merino jumper.

MrsCat1 Mon 02-Nov-20 18:39:12

@Ellapaella. Yes it does look lovely with that dark red jumper. Sadly that is over my budget. I have a teal coloured poncho that it looks nice with.

Countmeout Mon 02-Nov-20 18:51:11

Yay! 🙋🏻‍♀️
Thanks @Laska2Meryls

Thank you @Ellapaella and @AuldFox on last thread, I think that dress might sell out too but you never know. I certainly wouldn’t have had it if I hadn’t enough in eBay sales , save £5 to buy it.

saw that advent calendar, though it might be nice instead/as well as a spendy one.
You’ll have to report on the bauble @Spottyegg
Has anyone been temped by the wee parcels?
Love that dress @MrsCat1, maybe the jumper will be in the sale.

I was just sitting here, thinking the world's gone down the plughole but at least it's cold enough now to wear my lovely fair isle shetland jumper - and I notice that it's back in stock if anyone else wants it!

Can I ask for some washing instruction advice? It's for my Kin needlecord dress. I haven't washed it yet - does this mean no tumble drying? and no line drying either?

Saurus72 Mon 02-Nov-20 19:40:59

@Countmeout ha yes I ostensibly bought it for my OH (he loves owls and arty things) but in reality I bought it because I couldn’t resist it but I’ve already bought myself a L’occitane one. I bought my mum the rabbit version today too. Too lovely to resist but everyone is going to need cheering things in lockdown.

So so tempted by the little parcels - will probably order tomorrow 🙄😊

AuldFox Mon 02-Nov-20 19:41:09

faustina if you line dry, the water will accumulate at the lowest points and pull your jumper out of shape. I suggest dry it flat on a large towel.

AuldFox Mon 02-Nov-20 19:43:07

Also, if you have a 5 minute wool/delicates cycle on your tumble dryer, you can use that first to take a bit of the water out. But literally should be 5 mins on that cycle only, or you risk shrinking it.

Gonegrey31 Mon 02-Nov-20 19:44:05

Well I've bought the Falling Leaves dress, unfortunately have to wait to nearly the end of the month for it - here's hoping it might appear rather sooner.
Now got to sit on my hands and firmly resist any other purchases! My thinking is that I have many Toast old favourites in my wardrobe that come out year after year, so in cost-per-wear calculation, I can justify it...and I'm miserable at the thought of a winter lock down, separated from my beloved dd (studying abroad)

Laska2Meryls Mon 02-Nov-20 20:25:53

Oooh I like the parcels too.. Sad to have missed the Advent Calendar though. sad

Triangle with a cross through it = do not bleach
Circle in a square with a cross through it = do not tumble dry
Iron with a cross through it = do not iron
Circle with a cross through it = do not dry clean

faustina Mon 02-Nov-20 20:55:15

@OublietteBravo - thank you so much!

@AuldFox - apologies for confusion - the washing label is for the needlecord dress

how can I not iron that?? It sounds a bit mad!

Laska2Meryls Mon 02-Nov-20 20:59:45

I'd iron it on the reverse Faustina - Having said that I have not worn mine yet. Tried it on today ( rather sadly), thinking: "Shall I send you back? when will I get the chance to wear you?"....
So far I am keeping, because I really d love it....

Yes, iron needlecord on the ‘wrong’ side, Faustina either with steam if the fabric has dried completely, or iron it a bit damp. I’d machine wash on a cool cycle, inside out, and line dry.

Laska2Meryls Mon 02-Nov-20 21:15:03

Ellapaella that slate/red Zadie dress and red round collar merino jumper combo is fab.. I saw that on the model at the York shop ( which I was lucky enough to visit on holiday recently )..

You would look so fab in that combo.. (^Laska Enabling^.. gringringrin)

Whoops sorry, I misread and thought you were talking about your jumper!
