Just bought a fab electric blue skirt from Uniqlo.(In a bit of a hurry but hey ho) Tried it on at home.
POCKETS in the side seams which I didn't spot on the hanger. They add 5 inches to my hips.

The lovely expensive looking navy cropped tailored trousers I also bought from H & M that are perfect in every way ALSO HAVE FRIGGING HIDDEN POCKETS. They expand when you put them on. They make me look chunky.

god i love pockets. they are so useful, lipstick, work pass, marbles...

i thought those skirts a bit too long. what did you think of the v neck sweater dresses, are they frumpy?

But where would you put your tissues shock?

MrsMcCluskey Fri 17-Jul-09 18:46:23

Aha i tuck my tissues up my sleeve!!

I have never kept anything in my pockets.

I have enough home grown lumps and bumps without adding man made ones too.

Mine always fall out of my sleeve, and I leave a trail behind me. Or they go flying through the air when I waving my arms about (which I seem to do a lot hmm).

I just use the back of my hand

MrsMcCluskey Fri 17-Jul-09 18:52:44

LOL Mrsm!
I also tuck my tissues under my bra strap but that does make me feel middle aged for some reason!

mrsmaidamess Fri 17-Jul-09 18:55:30

Well having a cotton one safety pinned to your bra would be truly middle aged

MrsMcCluskey Fri 17-Jul-09 18:59:05

Now that is a fantastic idea
Goes off to google cotton hadkerchiefs....

My mum always has a freshly ironed hanky with her, I usually have a box of crumpled snotty tissues bulging out of my pockets.

Do you not get funny looks faffing around under your clothes, just to blow your nose?

I agree.

Pockets on skirts are never big enough to keep anything in anyway.
