They have got these cotton, light green coats with a kind of almost ric-rac type edging, lined in beautiful bird pattern lining...go and have a look if you are going there anyway, £25 was too much for me as I have a few too many coats, But boy did I dither grin in the trolley, out the trolley, in again, out again.

They are so nice.
Please someone go and get one so I can enjoy it vicariously.

Will try and find link...(ps is Flight here, under a cunning disguise...)

ooh is not online

They had all sizes so maybe a new style, have a look in your shop. Pale green, next to the business suits and so on.

<tempted to go back>

Was it officey or 'going to the park' style?

Barstardio Thu 23-Jul-09 17:12:34

It was park I'd say but deffo a smart day out, not your scruffy type of thing at all - it was almost <whispers> Bodenesque shock

I know the word now, the edging was pinked. I think.

vvv pretty sad

The only thing was it made you a bit busty, iyswim - the waist was high. I like a lower waist really for maximum slendering.

Oh and woodenish buttons.

Oh Gawd I might have to go back.

I don't know I'm asking as am 27 weeks preg and won't be able to do it up anyway!!

Sounds nice though. I bet my sister gets it. She gets a lot of nice things from there.

Sisters huh. Tell me about it.

You could get it now and wear it in the's lined and quite thick so a bit warm for right now. wink

Do you mean rick rack?

<swoons at memory of many a rick rack edged skirt in the 70s>

Well I think actually it wasn't, though I adore rick rack...I think it was pinked, using pinking shears. It had that effect anyway.

It is lovely but they didn't have my size boo hoo.
