Looks nice - my 63 year old mum has one and has received no end of compliments from complete strangers about how nice it is.
It is quite a long one though. Personally not keen on the short ones but that one looks a decent length and anyway that is probably just me.
Can't get my head round mix of linen, rayon and nylon though. I presume it will be quite "floppy" and not stiff.
hee hee. Didn't think of it like that - must be because I'm so pure and innocent ....
Didn't think you were 63 btw - what I meant was EVEN my 63 year old mum looks good in one.
Have you got £15? It's only money - if it's horrid, send it back!
Hey that looks like a bargain! Personally ponchos and me parted company when I was a kid, but if I thought it looked nice on me and I wanted one, I'd get one in a flash! I think Marslady is so right - about it being all about your own style.
I love the turns of phrase some of you mn's have. Charleypops' 'shuttlecock' observation was fab
Do you really think their that bad?
I've got one, I bought it and I hate it. I feel like a teenager when I wear it, in fact have been mistaken for one too often in it.
Yep your right, horrible things I'll throw my out tomorrow
I like that one, actually, but on the whole I think ponchos are rather lastseason
I bought a Pruna one (that's Per Una) and just kept it in my wardrobe for a year (kept trying it on, thinking nah, it's not really me, and putting it back in). Sold it on ebay in the end for £12 more than I paid for it.
