I like the look of the cord trousers (the Calamity Jane-alikes) and the stripy cardi. Dh said it looks a lot more girly this time,with all the kaftanny things.

I fancy this skirt.

The strapline 'Lovely Clothes for Lovely People' is amking me queasy.

pointydog Sun 07-Sep-08 16:16:18

and I do like a nice tank top

MaryAnnSingleton Sun 07-Sep-08 16:27:41

I was tempted by tank tops too, but probably wrong on someone not flat chested,no ?

pointydog Sun 07-Sep-08 16:39:43

I am by no means flat chested, but am not huge. As long as the neck is low enough I think they're ok.

I'm liking this with mustard tights and brown high lace ups

pointydog Sun 07-Sep-08 16:42:50

I love that pattern, maid, but style would not suit me

I like the Tunics and Kaftans. Had two from the summer range and wore them loads,so will get a winter one I think.

Bobbiewickham Sun 07-Sep-08 17:00:57

God, what gorgeous stuff.

You have just cost me a fortune again, ladies.

I fancy or - definitely want the cardi, quite tempted by the and would like most of the kaftan type tops and the calamity jane cords. Only problem is my bank manager would throw a hissy fit! Ah well, I can dream!

maidamess Sun 07-Sep-08 17:02:11

Ohhh Bobbie, I'm going to have to ring Johnny and tell him you've been a traitor!grin

Bobbiewickham Sun 07-Sep-08 17:05:25

<<looks around furtively>>

Oh, please don't maidemess. He gets very jealous. And he's relying on me to pay for his extension.

maidamess Sun 07-Sep-08 17:09:52

Yes and he will start sending you those fawning leaflets 'Have we done something to upset you? Why havent you ordered from us for a while?'

Bobbiewickham Sun 07-Sep-08 17:11:30

I love those.

I feel I am toying with him.

Which I am sure devastates him, as he sits there eating money, on his chair made of money, in his house made of money.

Yes indeed.

maidamess Sun 07-Sep-08 17:13:15

I had to ring Boden up and ask them to stop stalking me. It was getting ridiculous.

I've got the same problem with Emma Bloody Bridgewater. Will that woman stop sending me catalogues? Will she heck.

Bobbiewickham Sun 07-Sep-08 17:15:21

At least you're not getting stalked by Peruvian Connection.

Took me bloody years to shake that lot off. I kept expecting to open my front door and find a gang of Peruvians in ponchos playing the pan pipes at me till I agreed to buy something.

We ended up moving.

supercollider Sun 07-Sep-08 17:20:10

I get three catalogues from Boden every couple of months - one to my name, one to a variant spelling of my name, and one to the woman who used to live here. I'm considering taking out an injunction.

maidamess Sun 07-Sep-08 17:21:43

What on earth is The Peruvian Connection? is it music, or clothes? or some kind of dating service?

Bobbiewickham Sun 07-Sep-08 17:28:02

Heinous clothes, made out of alpaca wool.


Bobbiewickham Sun 07-Sep-08 17:29:04

It's like Per Una on acid.

maidamess Sun 07-Sep-08 17:30:19

Ye gods! How expensive is that stuff!

Bobbiewickham Sun 07-Sep-08 17:31:50

I know.

More money than taste would just about cover it, I feel.

raspberrytart Sun 07-Sep-08 21:36:45
