Would this be a VERY boring thing to ask DH to get me for wedding anniversary? We are a bit strapped and I need some new knitwear.

I may pop in today and check out colours

I saw some nice lace topped crinkle finish camisoles/vests in Tesco the other day for £4. I'm sure they are exactly the same article as Monsoon had (may still have) for £22!!

Agree Mrs SB, am sure that those crinkle finish vests are same as Monsoon. I have a knee length cotton dress with white embroidery on it that also looks like a Monsoon number.......for only £16

I do like their cotton cardigans. I have also bought a couple of their bikinis this year and they are fab too - thick & supportive fabric etc.

Would also recommend their cotton skirts with pintuck pleats. Very White Stuff/Fat Face/Monsoon and for a bargainous £8. A friend of mine has one in white and it isn't cheapie see-through etc.

I have an aversion to 3/4 length sleeves.

Takes me back to being a gangly teenager.

Have just purchased a Magenta one, will add a new dimension to my summer wardrobe.

I think I may go back for a blue one

MrKrabs Sun 21-Jun-09 10:33:41

My mum has become obsessed. Is sending me daily( or even twice daily) updates of stock levels and colours!"!

Red now sold out locally, and she bought a lilac one only to get home and it was on the wrong hanger thus too small

Podrick Sun 21-Jun-09 10:37:42

I bought 5 short sleeve cotton cardigans in different colours - about £7 each

Lizzylou Sun 21-Jun-09 17:23:16

Wore Magenta one to Family get together today, wore a cotton summery top underneath with the exact same colour in the pattern.
Got loads of compliments.

Wore the magenta one today - three friends asked if it was monsoon-Tesco also do a lovely longline white cotton shirt with ties at the back -I have worn it to death- wish I had bought 2.

mrsmaidamess Sun 21-Jun-09 19:50:13

I'm wearing UNIQLO 9.99 cotton thin cardi's, V neck (hate crew neck) FAB colours especially a riotous coral red which makes me look dead healthy

Lizzylou Sun 21-Jun-09 21:08:52

MrKrabs Sun 21-Jun-09 21:38:55

HarryB Mon 22-Jun-09 07:25:11

BettyTurnip Mon 22-Jun-09 10:16:58

Do they go bobbly though (esp under the arms and side of boobs)?

Squidward Mon 22-Jun-09 12:16:33

Lizzylou Mon 22-Jun-09 15:54:51

Wore my Magenta one again today to do school run, got loads of compliments and even though I was hot was turning the same shade of Magenta I kept it on and preened.
