I've just been, just got some shoes from Monsoon online, a DVD from amazon and now buying tickets to The Big Chill, so properly skint now!

Newbarnsleygirl Thu 02-Jun-05 11:01:59

Oooh shoes from Monsoon

Thomcat Thu 02-Jun-05 11:08:46

errr no actually not shoes, some espadrilles for £12.00! Is that better now

Newbarnsleygirl Thu 02-Jun-05 11:13:02


We need links.

Where is everyone???

Lizzylou Thu 02-Jun-05 11:15:56

I bought a lovely top and skirt from Monsoon for a wedding recently, it is called "Garnet" I think...very different for me, sorry, cannot do links!
They have amazing things on their website! If you've got the cash, thats where I'd splash it!

Thomcat Thu 02-Jun-05 11:20:35

Right you look up jaipur, that's the top and skirt I got and I'll looik upo yours. Meet you back here in 5!

Thomcat Thu 02-Jun-05 11:22:12

how funny, they are SO similar!
What shoes did you get to go with it?

Lizzylou Thu 02-Jun-05 11:24:10

Thomcat, I couldn't afford the Jaipur! It is a beautiful outfit!
I am wearing some silver strappy is lovely on and I am well chuffed as I ordered a size 14 skirt (am a 14/16 normally) and it is a bit loose (good for all that wedding cake!)

I've just bought two skirts and a jacket from Ebay in an attempt to get a bit trendy for the summer - I have a bit of a pink thing going on at the moment



And Here

Need to find some tops now - I've put on a few pounds since xmas after giving up smoking so don't really want to buy new stuff as hopefully I'll lose it again

Lizzylou Thu 02-Jun-05 11:27:10

They look really nice Bubblerock.....size 10!! And you've put on weight???!! You lucky minx!

Newbarnsleygirl Thu 02-Jun-05 11:27:21

They're gorgeous.

I've just bought a skirt very similar to the Jaipur.

I couldn't see any espadrilles though.

bubblerock Thu 02-Jun-05 11:28:41

Just 9lbs but it's pushed me from an 8/10 to a 10/12 and my clothes are really snug and uncomfortable

Thomcat Thu 02-Jun-05 11:29:04

i'm struggling with shoes, I don't do heels at the best of times but will be 4 months pregnant at an outside/garenden/marquee wedding and carrying Lottie around so geels would be a really bad idea.

bubblerock Thu 02-Jun-05 11:30:46

Wedges would give you height but be a bit more sturdy.

Thomcat Thu 02-Jun-05 11:30:48

The espadrilles are actually jaipur, but kids, in a desperate attempt to see if they will go with the top and skirt but I really don';t think they will, have to try though as getting a bit desperate and you've seen my post re no heels.

Very nice bubble. 10/12 isn't big you know, sounds a nice size to me.

Thomcat Thu 02-Jun-05 11:31:38

Hmmm won't NOT do wedges but tricky colour to match shoes to

Newbarnsleygirl Thu 02-Jun-05 11:32:20

I saw the kids ones, they're lovley.

4 months pregnant

Lizzylou Thu 02-Jun-05 11:32:49

What about a gold/bronze colour?

bubblerock Thu 02-Jun-05 11:34:14

I actually feel sexier being a size bigger as my boobs have grown it's just a bit of a pain that i can't fit into my wardrobe and can't really afford to buy a whole new one.

What are you looking to buy NBG?

Thomcat Thu 02-Jun-05 11:34:14

Gold would be okay actually, need to get out there and get shopping.

bubblerock Thu 02-Jun-05 11:40:04

Thomcat - just looked at the colour of your outfit, it's gorgeous but looks a bugger to match! I'd go with a strappy sandal in a very pale colour with maybe a little jewel detail, but as the outfit is bold I think the shoes shouldn't be too heavy - almost non existent iYSWIM

Thomcat Thu 02-Jun-05 11:40:57

no strappy sandals, well only if very flat.
Will try for gold.

Lizzylou Thu 02-Jun-05 11:44:14

With an outfit like that honey , no-one will be paying attention to your feet!
It's bloomin gorgeous!
