blush. I quite like it, though with a funky pair of trainers or flatties rather than those hideous shoes, and a different top. But the yellow get-up on the lhs is monstruous.

so thats what they do with all the left over sweetie wrappers

midnightexpress Fri 08-Aug-08 09:00:18

That's the one cremola - argh.

cremolafoam Fri 08-Aug-08 09:01:39

lime flares

turquoise Fri 08-Aug-08 09:03:25

Another corker

cremolafoam Fri 08-Aug-08 09:08:30

oh yes - and with the patent wedge natch.

i'm thinking a casual weekend in Venice look.

my eyes...

How about this skirt with this jacket and for the finishing touch, this mac over the top (or maybe the pink versionhmm)?

annh Fri 08-Aug-08 09:13:58

They are VILE! Is that representative of the whole collection?! On a slight tangent, does anyone else's M&S smell really bad? We have a huge one close to us (recently refurbed) and every time I step in there it smells like a mixture of wet wool, dry cleaning fluid and smelly socks!

midnightexpress Fri 08-Aug-08 09:14:40

this season's It bag?

JackieNo Fri 08-Aug-08 09:14:41

And look at this delightful skirt - it really is a load of charity shop scarves stitched together. and the strange ruffly top too.

I am speechless with horror shockshockshock. Truly grim.

cremolafoam Fri 08-Aug-08 09:17:09

jakieno nonono- its this skirt with that top obv!


JackieNo Fri 08-Aug-08 09:17:30

Strange pattern, and I've never liked those shoe boots. ANd this is just plain nasty, imo.

StellaWasADiver Fri 08-Aug-08 09:18:40

love it love it love it

i can't wait to do per una spotting when i go back to work

JackieNo Fri 08-Aug-08 09:19:19

cremolafoam - you're probably rightgrin.
How about M&S tries to do the Boden hotchpotch?

JackieNo Fri 08-Aug-08 09:20:41

Bleeurgh (and the pic makes it look like a dress - must be a matching top somewhere).

JackieNo Fri 08-Aug-08 09:21:34

SHe doesn't look any too happy about the whole experience, does shegrin?

JackieNo Fri 08-Aug-08 09:22:44

(and lol at the text on that hat one, 'featuring a large corsage at the side to give it that Per Una touch'grin).

flowerybeanbag Fri 08-Aug-08 09:23:14

I am confused. I am genuinely confused. Surely no one is buying this stuff year in year out? Why are they still doing it? Surely they can't possibly be making any money out of it?
