lolol at the names "heath coat" "Kenwood parka".

don't think I've ever seen anyone in Hampstead wearing anything like this

But quite like this dress

and these trousers

All pretty pricey though.

I really like the heath jacquard coat but alas too £££ for me.

The fenton trench is beauuuutiful <sigh>

Not till the sale that is sad

Not at all sure about the boy shorts and the riding pants hmm

To me the whole range is emperor's new clothes Hobbs and will confer instant dowdiness <fbr realises is wearing Hobbs boots she bought five years ago blush>

Oh Squeaver.

I've not got any money.

Please refrain from such links. I have just mentally spent an easy couple of grand.

MaggieBehaveOutGuising Tue 13-Oct-09 18:16:20

what's the idea? is NW3 supposed to be cheaper or younger or just trendier?

I like the feather dress but nothing else. A lot of it looks v Laura Ashley circa 1984-ish - tartan trousers fgs!!!

janeite Tue 13-Oct-09 19:06:30

Oh I like the acorn necklace too but I would be allergic to it.

squeaver Tue 13-Oct-09 19:15:32

It's Hobbs' spiritual home apparently...

Links aren't working properly. I like the flowery dress and tuxedo pants.

Boy shorts are hilarious. Riding pants are for trekking across the Heath, obviously, rabbit.

I have got a pair of hobbs boots too, they were about 70% off, but have got a wide calf and a leather sole and I wore them once, felt stupid, and thought they would wear out really quickly.

So they are sitting here.

Does ayone know about lether soles? Are you meant to get a rubber sole fitted to protect the leather or something?

I can't increase my calves though anyway sadly.
