I can't work the link but a fab dress I've seen in Coast that's grey and would look great as a dress or with leggings or skinny jeans!

Finlay Frill Dress

I've seen a similar sounding thing in Esprit (who knew that chain still existed??) which I am lusting after too.

To spend on ourselves?

A pair of Road jeans, a pair of nice runners and a haircut

(not that i've thought about it or anything blush)

I would buy a decent coat.

PinkTulips Mon 14-Sep-09 16:37:32

osmosis, i bought a skirt from Esprit a few years back and it's still my favourite item of clothing... worth every penny

Here is your Finlay Frill Dress Link. Tbh for the money I think you could find something similar but cheaper elsewhere.

PinkTulips Mon 14-Sep-09 16:40:43

you can get similar in Primark atm wink

That's the one Fimbo - thanks! Yeah you're probably right. Seen a lovely tunic in Isabella Olivers 365 range for £79 which is slightly cheaper but fancy a dress too.

Lovely green velvet coat/jacket from White Stuff

Some jeans (although lord knows if jeans exist that actually fit me where they should as I've tried enough on recently but they're all baggy where they shouldn't be...sorry, went on a bit of a rant there)

Eyebrow shaping

I normally love frills, but I can't imagine what figure that shape of dress would flatter.

I'm sure I've seen nicer elsewhere (can't think where however).

Might have been Esprit actually.

A cashemire jumper

AvadaKedavra Mon 14-Sep-09 17:00:07

Engracia dress @ £95

and this Maddy cardi @ £48

not to wear together though obv

GrapefruitMoon Mon 14-Sep-09 17:00:57

That White Stuff coat is very like the Boden velvet one - and a lot cheaper!

I'd buy new boots and a coat if I had a spare £150...

AvadaKedavra Mon 14-Sep-09 17:04:18

I'd spend the change on Wispa Golds by the way grin

NorbertDentressangle Mon 14-Sep-09 17:05:02

The Boden velvet coat always looked a bit too flarey for my liking -I think the WS one looks a bit straighter, a nicer fit (not that I've tried it on so I may be wrong)

Boden velvet blazer in the mad Pink colour and Boden Rainbow coat

silver locket! keep hinting but not being heard!

Tortoise Mon 14-Sep-09 18:02:49

If it was to just spend on myself i would start with a new pair of trainers, the ones i am wearing everywhere outside at the moment have worn through and have a hole in the sole. So thin that it is very painful if i step on small stones!

Then i would buy new clothes because i very very rarely buy myself any.
