See makes me sea sick just looking at!I have nothing against stripes or the cut but the two together...yuk..yuk..or is it just too cool for me?

BroccoliSpears Sat 11-Oct-08 23:13:47

lolol - everyone would keep helpfully pointing out you'd got your cardi done up wrong.

Tommy Sat 11-Oct-08 23:14:23


too "cool" for me too unless is was designed on 1st April or it's a bluff by the shop who will laugh at anyone who buys it grin

SheSellsSeashellsByTheSeashore Sat 11-Oct-08 23:18:13

She's done it up wrong. Silly model wink

NappiesLaGore Sat 11-Oct-08 23:21:24

was expecting something really cool and to roll my eyes at you... but youre right; its shiteola.

geraldinetheluckygoat Sat 11-Oct-08 23:24:25

LOL it doesn't even look cool, just rubbish. But I am definitely uncool, to be fair...

LetThemEatCake Sat 11-Oct-08 23:29:34

I am pretty cool hmm and even I think it looks shite

geraldinetheluckygoat Sat 11-Oct-08 23:36:36

Might get one, maybe it will MAKE me will be the envy of all the other mums on the school run..

jasper Sat 11-Oct-08 23:42:21

Good golly I achieve that look sometimes but not on purpose.


samsonara Sat 11-Oct-08 23:43:22

Even after looking at it a few times it still makes no sense to me fashion or otherwise..its just wrong..wrong..and def too cool for skool! Maybe my eyes are just too tired, I'll check it again in the morning to see if its grown on me..

The done-up-by-a-three-year-old look is absolutely very autumn 2008. In the same range see black silk shirt with over shoulder baby sick and cream pencil skirt with jam hand print. Playground chic.

princesspeahead Sat 11-Oct-08 23:44:48

that is the shite-est garment I have ever seen


uberalice Sat 11-Oct-08 23:55:30

LOL. I was amused by the unfortunate mis-spelling of Asymmetric too. How very apt. grin

Mumi Sun 12-Oct-08 00:06:36

Why pay 56 quid when I can already do up my cardie wrong for free? grin

BananaFruitBat Sun 12-Oct-08 00:13:26

Assymetric hmm

samsonara Sun 12-Oct-08 12:15:54

No its not looking any better in the morning!grin

differentWitch Sun 12-Oct-08 12:50:31

it looks like it's been badly washed. How would you go about proving it was faulty if something happened in the wash?

kt14 Sun 12-Oct-08 14:56:27

horrid. it offends my eyes.

elkiedee Sun 12-Oct-08 19:09:05

Ugh, it would bug the hell out of me! It also doesn't do even the model any favours, imagine how it would look on those of us who are slightly curvier than her.

BoysAreLikeZombies Sun 12-Oct-08 19:11:08

It's in the sale <<snort>>

Really ? Wonder why.

hecAteTheirBrains Sun 12-Oct-08 19:16:46

It's a bit silly.

But then most things linked to on here are - and most of them are swooned over and called fabulous.

Er. No. The print pattern of your grans old curtains put onto a piece of wetlook leathereffect material and made into a knee length dress with batwing sleeves and a plunging lacetrimmed neckline is in no way fabulous.

How on earth sane people are being brainwashed into buying terrible clothing because someone claims it's stylish is beyond me.

I wish I had such powers of persuasion, I wouldn't be convincing people to go out looking like a dogs dinner, I'd be getting 30% of their wages DD'd into my bank account every month!!! wink

samsonara Sun 12-Oct-08 20:52:09

Whatever you think is terrile may be someone elses idea of fab, and the whole pint of putting things on the style and beauty thread is to give us who are not brainwashed a smile or laugh or even some ecouragement or inspiration etc, or even point out soemthing we are looking for, well clearly its not for hecIatemysenseofhumourorperpective.wink

hecAteTheirBrains Sun 12-Oct-08 20:55:10

bite me

samsonara Sun 12-Oct-08 20:57:45

sorry about the spelling errors :terrible, point,encouragement, something...[ I must check message preview..x100 grin]

samsonara Sun 12-Oct-08 21:03:31

Big smile,...oh sorry I thought you said 'buy me' grin
