I went a bit mad mainly because last winter I was post baby and too big to get in my clothes so I'm making up for it! Plus I realise I wore my jumpers really short and I don't really want to flash my mummy tummy!

2 Boden Crew Neck Cardis
2 Boden Polo necks on order from preview
Zara Boyfriend Cardigan
White Stuff flowery top
2 plain long sleeve t-shirts
Pair of winter leggings
Fly boots
Tall Uggs

When I look at it now it's all pretty basic rather than fun stuff but really needed it. Still debating which tunic to get!

Which tunics are you looking at? Post links so we can judge help you choose!

my winter wardrobe consists mainly of a cardi over my summer wardrobe, with a pair of boots.... What ARE winter leggings??

Mimi1977 Wed 16-Sep-09 21:20:50

I did Dexter - and you were the first to reply!!

Winter leggings Lal are jeggings I guess!! Just sound rather trendy but much thicker than my summer ones!

About 6 Uniqlo Heat Teach tops, different styles/ colours
2 Uniqlo leggings
Boden babycord dress
Boden purple moleskin trousers
Boden hooded mac
Uniqlo merino dress
Uniqlo merino cardi

No winter coat/ work suits/ hat/ boots - last year's will do just fine. Also still have loads of trousers and skirts.

Do you have nice jeans (Holy Grail!)?
Recently I have bought this which I love.

Mimi1977 Wed 16-Sep-09 21:27:33

Got a pair of rock and republic, 3 pairs of citizens and then some Gap ones. I love that Gap cardi

fishie Wed 16-Sep-09 21:28:46

i love uniqlo heat tech, am going to get mine next week.

have bought:
boden long suede boots (at vast reduction)
gap cord dresses
uniqlo shrug cardie thing in navy

need to get more tights in interesting colours and long jumpers to go with short skirts.

dexter73 Wed 16-Sep-09 21:35:52

I remember the tunics now - Boden one and polo neck one. I would like to try this purple one from White Stuff. Think it would look nice with long sleeved grey top underneath.

Mimi1977 Wed 16-Sep-09 21:37:29

That's lovely - hand wash puts me off though with a one-year old!

LadyGlencoraPalliser Wed 16-Sep-09 21:56:38

I've bought two £12 pairs of jeans from M&S - one black, one dark blue
A Boden twisted double-layer top (to use my voucher)
And today's big spending spree
Fatface parka
Fatface boots
Joe Browns dress
Joe Browns chiffon top
And that will be all. I have now officially spent this winter's clothing budget. [grin}
Unless I see a skirt I really like that costs a lot less than this one that I was very tempted by today!

Well I've decided to grow old disgracefully and have bought a leather jacket, a pair of Ash trainers and a fabulous short silk dress with shoulder pads because I've got a few nights out planned between now and Xmas (which I'm probably too old for because I can remember the 80s). Oh, and 2 pairs of bargain jeans (a pair of black sevens and a washed blue pair of replay jeans for £25 each from TK Maxx) And my next purchase is going to be big chunky necklace!

LetThemEatCake Wed 16-Sep-09 22:03:33

oooohh, dying to properly peruse and join this thread but must get work done TONIGHT, no more dilly dallying!!

LGP, talk to me about Joe Browns - keep seeing mentioned on here but have no prior...

I've had to buy an entirely new wardrobe as weirdly I am 4 dress sizes smaller than last winter with a baby inbetween!

I've bought:

1 x Boden knitted dress
1 x Boden skirt to wear with boots
2 x jersey dresses (Boden and Joules)
1 x pair of long boots (my other pairs are now too big around the calf)
3 x jumpers
1 x Boden cords
1 x Boden cord jacket
1 x swimming cossie
2 x jeans

I do need some basic tops, a pair of leggings and a winter coat but I am waiting a while longer to see if I lose more weight. I've also been selling my old stuff on ebay as I am on maternity leave and pretty skint so replacing my big wardrobe with my small wardrobe may take a bit of time.

There is a Boden bias because I went to the shopping party and took advantage of the offer to get the fourth item for a £1.

LadyGlencoraPalliser Wed 16-Sep-09 22:11:42

I don't know yet LTEC. The catalogues have been turning up in my post for a couple of years but this is the first time I've actually ordered anything. I will submit a full report when the stuff arrives.

UndomesticHousewife Thu 17-Sep-09 13:43:56

So far I've bought

black skinny jeans to wear under
black knee high biker boots
A shortish jersey jacket
blue skinny flare jeans
A black tight long V neck thin jumper to wear over tight tops (£4 from primark-bargain)

and that seems to be it, thought it was a lot more as I have spent loads of money - maybe I've forgotton some things.

Oliveoil Thu 17-Sep-09 13:48:00

what is with all the Boden????

I have been trying on bikinis today

uggs and leggings my arse

Bleh Thu 17-Sep-09 13:56:07

Well, so far I have bought:
- two tops from Gap, same style (very fine t shirt material 3/4 length sleeves, buttons down front) in white and navy blue with stripes
- white shirt with navy blue stripes from Gap (slight pattern going on here ...)
- Flowery print cotton shirt dress from H&M which is AMAZING
- Leopard print scarf

There is more I'm wanting to get, but just haven't found the right things.

Mimi1977 Thu 17-Sep-09 14:10:43

WTF Olive Oil... Uggs and leggings my arse?!!

Hope you had fun trying on bikinis! grin

NoahDear Thu 17-Sep-09 14:11:27

OLIVE!!! i was thinking baout you today

Oliveoil Thu 17-Sep-09 14:15:13

I tried on lots of bikinis but they were cut for supamoggels and kept creeping up my arse so I put them back on the shelf

supamoggels don't have to make sandcastles 300 times an hour, they lol in a 5* hotel iirc

it is cold here atm though, I want my summer

KristinaM Thu 17-Sep-09 14:18:12

yaddax3 - i think i bought these same black 7 jeans as you - £25 in TKMaxx.

do you perchance know how to remove the sticky label on the shiny label on the back of the jeans???

lovely trainers BTW but £££££

ZZZenAgain Thu 17-Sep-09 14:20:30

comfy round-toed soft ankle boots with a spongey sole (not suede). But can I find them?!

dexter73 Thu 17-Sep-09 16:54:33

LadyGlencoraPalliser - that Fat Face cord skirt had £15 off when I went in today. Lots of other things with £10 - £15 off.

CybilLiberty Thu 17-Sep-09 17:22:17

I really need boots. And NOAH I am calling you on another thread.

In my minds eye I will be wearing longish cardi''s with 3/4 length sleeves, dark jeans, fab clonky brown boots that fit MY FRIGGIN CALVES, and layering.

ANd I may throw a fab belt around the lot if the mood takes me.
