I saw a teenage boy trying on a shocking pink cardi in New Look yesterday.

My older boy only 8 , not into clothes unless it's got a Storm trooper on the front.

Boys love pink.Lots of ds friends wear it.makes them look so healthy

Pielight Thu 03-Sep-09 14:56:52

No don't think so. Am running through his wardrobe in my mind.

That pale pink is a v. good colour though. dh does.

NoahFence Thu 03-Sep-09 14:57:35

older ds WONT
you should see this outfit he got ata Zara boy - he was so chuffed and was doing that "I am not smiling but its really hard not to admire myself" thing

ds looks lovely in this

Pielight Thu 03-Sep-09 14:58:01

In my mind, there's a hint of the toff about boys in pink. No idea why. Is unfair. But is linked with men in red trousers etc.

DS would love it and so would my extremely fashion concious 13 yo brother.

Pielight Thu 03-Sep-09 14:58:40

Oh I love the trying not to admire myself look! I love him. What else did he get?

CybilLiberty Thu 03-Sep-09 14:58:47

Ooh pink top red trousers!

NoahFence Thu 03-Sep-09 14:58:51

oh that IS ra sherb

sherby Thu 03-Sep-09 15:01:03

i loves boys in casual shirts

Pielight Thu 03-Sep-09 15:01:08

omg. perhaps the boden catalogue is responsible for my toff link of pink for boys, and bright red trousers for men? Who knew they'd wormed their way into my very mind so well? shock

CybilLiberty Thu 03-Sep-09 15:02:02

Noah WHERE do you keep all these clothes you keep ordering? ('I've ordered the cardi in teal, GunMetal and Purple, the boots in Pewter and Bark, and the mac in Racing Navy and Charcoal') I'm enthralled.

NoahFence Thu 03-Sep-09 15:03:05

oh god i take LOT back
htis week alone - two next things three boden things and two jigsaw ( for eg)

waht have you ordered in those colours

CybilLiberty Thu 03-Sep-09 15:04:08

Nothing, I made them up. Sound good though, don't they

NoahFence Thu 03-Sep-09 15:04:13

its an issue - long legs short waist

CybilLiberty Thu 03-Sep-09 15:05:55

I'm too fat for all my trousers atm. I have resorted to buying wide legged thick jersey numbers in navy from the unfashionable section in M&S. Will wear with ballet s and a top.

NoahFence Thu 03-Sep-09 15:06:57

I tried on these LOVELy next ones
but 12 a bit ahem tight ( god anna would have a fit)
14 were cavernous

CybilLiberty Thu 03-Sep-09 15:07:56

I'm sure Anna would approve of my attepmts at Fat Girl Parisienne Chic

noddyholder Thu 03-Sep-09 15:17:04
