it's gorgeous

thanks to moondog who linked to it - think it was you??

all vaginal comments to be retracted please!!!!

moondog Sat 12-Sep-09 11:35:05

OOh, lovely! (Although I linked to it as another MNer had done in another thread a few days earlier so she must take credit.)

I'm having that (and a complete wardrobe rehaul) just as soon as i get my damned MSc thesis to the binders.

Tell me more-is it light?
Doesn't make onle look like a womble does it?


Can you give me idea of your dimensions (if not too forward) so I can mentally tally with own?

I love that cardigan. It looks gorgeous and v stylish.

Have never really looked at Isabella Oliver before. Sadly, grey isn't really my colour (altho I do wear it sometimes). Wish they did it in a sumptuous chocolate brown

It's lovely envy
Oh the wantiness!

There's a lot of stuff I want there. What do you think of the draped skirt?

LetThemEatCake Sat 12-Sep-09 15:45:56

moondog - do you mean light, as in the colour? or the texture? It's chunky, very warm ... am actually quite looking forward to the colder weather now so that I can wear it, and that's saying something!!! am usually very angry about cold weather...

I don't think I look like a womble... put it this way, dh ripped the "returns will not be accepted unless this tag is attached" tag off saying "no bloody way are you returning that, it's bloody gorgeous"

tulpe - they definitely need to extend their colour range, choc brown would be heaven!! Even black/ charcoal would be nice. Or a deep wine colour

Sazisi - that draped skirt is lovely, very stylish!! would last you ages.

LetThemEatCake Sat 12-Sep-09 15:47:23

oh sorry moondog - dimensions:
am 5'10", very heavily pregnant (due next week) but usually about 10stone, size 10ish - you can look at my profile if you want

Scorps Sat 12-Sep-09 15:49:32

I'm due on xmas day and think that would be a great birthday (Nov) present from DH for me - fab for postnatal wear too as well as late pregnancy. Love it.

LetThemEatCake Sat 12-Sep-09 15:52:46

yes, post natal I was thinking perfect - forgiving on any remaining bulk, warm enough to bf in the park when the other dcs need to be out and about, drapey enough to be discreet and to keep bubba warm!!

For non-babycentric wear, will wear with leather pencil skirt, high black ankle boots, opaques and l/s black top... tres versatile!!

CHOOGIRL Sat 12-Sep-09 16:40:35

OMG That cardigan is lovely. I'm tempted but I already have the DKNY, and the White Co Cardicoat...

LetThemEatCake Sat 12-Sep-09 17:10:19

yes, but it's nearly winter!!! <<shivers>>

I'm stopping here ... have this, the White Co Cardicoat on order (have you got yours already?? what's it like??) the travelwrap and my mum is making me the blanket cardi .... think I'll try to get through winter without a coat ..

moondog Sat 12-Sep-09 17:33:40

Is this the White Company cardicoat you have?

They've sent me a 20% discount catalogue but not sure that in it...

moondog Sat 12-Sep-09 17:34:15

Oh yes it is!

LetThemEatCake Sat 12-Sep-09 18:31:49

yep that's it ... 20% grrrr very jealous, although I did get 15% off ... get it, get it!!!

btw, I got a 15% off code with my IO order so could always get the cosy for you when you're ready? don't want it to go to waste and can't see myself getting anything else from there for the time being....

moondog Sat 12-Sep-09 21:44:47

Did you??!
Can I have it please! smile

LetThemEatCake Sat 12-Sep-09 23:50:06

of course you can - but ... is it not a personal code (ie linked to my purchase details, address etc??) Would it be transferable? I wouldn't mind just checking that out since the nature of my work means that I would hate to pee off any of the IO girls .. but if that's the case, am happy to purchase for you and send it on, you can pay me back with paypal or whatever?

moondog Sat 12-Sep-09 23:52:12

Oh gosh, I don't want to put you out at all! I don't have Paypal either I don't think..
Really, it's fine. smile
I'll get this bloody thesis done and dusted then get onto them. I'm pretty good at negotiating own discounts tbh so may have a go.

moondog Sat 12-Sep-09 23:53:20

I don't think codes are personal though. It is known that they are swapped and exchanged. Entire websites are devoted to them.

LetThemEatCake Sat 12-Sep-09 23:54:51

no worries then, all yours. Bear with me, will go upstairs and get it.

LetThemEatCake Sat 12-Sep-09 23:58:30


valid until 30 November - but tarry not!!! the weather will get chilly long before then - and you need something gorgeous waiting for you for when the thesis is done!

moondog Sun 13-Sep-09 00:07:11

Thank you.Will give it a whirl and what a lovely incentive twill be to get this swine done and dusted!

LetThemEatCake Sun 13-Sep-09 00:13:30

let me know what you think of it when it arrives!! I didn;t want to take mine off today, was quite gutted when it got really warm!

and good luck with your thesis smile

moondog Sun 13-Sep-09 09:48:08

Thank you.
I will indeed come back with a review.

CHOOGIRL Sun 13-Sep-09 14:13:10

OK Willpower lasted less than 24 hours. Have now ordered! White Co Cardicoat is wonderful and soft and looks lovely on. Have just realised that I now need something to keep me warm with this Will a pashmina do?

flowerybeanbag Sun 13-Sep-09 17:32:14

What size do I need if I were to be very naughty and get one?

I am a 10-12 normally.

LetThemEatCake Sun 13-Sep-09 18:49:22

Choogirl, I think a pashmina is your only option - anything else will detract from the gorgeousness of the dress. Oooh, here might be where you need a TravelWrap!!!! I am so jealous that you have WC CC already - I want mine!!!!!

Flowery - I am also a 10-12 and bought a M, which appears to be perfect ... but I'd buy an S and an M to be on the safe side and then send one back

And I strongly advise you to be very naughty and get one as soon as possible!!!! I have been in mine all day, lovely!!!
