thanks ggirl and angrypixie. I agree the clothes look a bit odd which is why I posted, I suspect way too young for me and also don't want to be put in position where I feel obliged to pay £50 for a t-shirt I don't want (host has said "no need to buy"... but you know how these things are)
Haven't been to a party, but a friend is an agent (or whatever they call it) and I bought some of her samples from her at the end of the season. I like the stuff - it's quirky and a bit off-beat, like clothes I've often seen in France - and there's little chance of walking into a room and someone else wearing the same thing. My one gripe is that one of the jumpers (a wool/acrylic mix) very quickly went bobbly.
Oh, and I'm older than any of you and far from svelte. So, if you like the stuff, go for it!
thanks MadBadandCoveredinSequins That's encouraging (I think!) Any ideas on pricing? Am thinking of asking a friend to come with me who is having a tough time and needs a break, she loves clothes, but I also know money is tight for her at the mo and would hate to embarrass her.
I can't help much with prices because they were old samples so I got a hefty discount as she wanted to get rid of them. I think I paid about £20 an item. It's certainly not cheap and cheerful, but I don't think (touch wood) it would be £50 for a t-shirt and the quality's quite good (see earlier comment about bobbling).
