I have hundreds of them! And t bar shoes, high ones. And wide leg trousers. I need to branch out! What do you always tend to go for?

Any sort of knitwear. Even in the height of Summer (not this year obv).

And jeans. I crossly said to myself yesterday in the Gap "no, no more jeans". Unfortunately I said it out loud [mad old lady emoticon]

Little cardis, i love them and am always on the lookout for cute ones. Oh and vest tops too.

maidamess Sat 06-Sep-08 15:12:38

Yes I have MANY pairs of jeans too, but I wear them all! Infact jeans is all I wear at weekends really.

purple tops
all my tops seem to be either purple or black
I need some colour in my life!

maidamess Sat 06-Sep-08 15:14:09

compo, you are bang on trend.

compo Sat 06-Sep-08 15:14:35

yes but that's been my style for at least the last 10 years grin

maidamess Sat 06-Sep-08 15:15:24

lol snarky, same here! Unless its in Karen Millen. Or the Edinburgh Woollen Mill.

Yes, always black for me too. And it does absolutely nothing for me.

In fact, black cardis are a big part of my shopping life.

janeite Sat 06-Sep-08 15:16:44

Saramoon - where do you get your little cardigans from please? I've just bought a cute one in M&S in bright fuschia pink and would love some in different colours. I need them to be V neck though - and the others I've seen elsewhere have been round necked.

The thing I'm always drawn to is cute flared, just under the knee 50s style skirts in quirky patterns or silk - I've got about 12 of them!

saramoon Sat 06-Sep-08 15:23:42

Janeite, I love those skirts too!! I have a few cardis from, let me think, cara, topshop, zara, charity shops, motel, txmaxx, monty smith.

janeite Sat 06-Sep-08 15:25:50

Thanks - will have a look in Topshop; instead of hanging around the entrance twiddling my thumbs whilst dd1 is in there! I looked in Zara and couldn't find anything.

I've never heard of Cara or Monty Smith.

Love cardigans, of all colours. M&S have some lovely cardi's at the moment.

chocolateshoes Sat 06-Sep-08 15:31:49

Fat Face & White stuff for funky skirts & cute cardis. Those are my style too. At the moment I'm also drawn to warm knits as the weather is so grim but can't find much around. I want to be snug!

twinsetandpearls Sat 06-Sep-08 16:01:23

anything with a bit of sparkle or a big pattern, also love red and teal - not togther though.

maidamess Sat 06-Sep-08 16:03:20

now twinset I am trying to get into pattern more...everything in my wardrobe is plain. I always worry I will get fed up with big statements.

bikerunski Sat 06-Sep-08 18:03:07

Chunky but trendy boots and shoes are my thing. And I always have to check out Schue for new colours of Converse in the summer. And tops which are patterned but not stripes or florals.
