bundle Wed 10-Aug-05 11:30:26

oh and leggings <<shudder>>

Puffballs??! As in puffball skirts? Omg, noooo not for me. I don't go much on military/nautical stuff either even though I probably do sound like a sergeant major to the children sometimes.

Puffballs?? What is it with this rehashing old (awful) styles? SOme of this years 70s stuff was bad enough (I have pictures of my parents from when I was little wearing stuff similar to that in the shops now).
What next - crinolines? Loincloths????

A revival of 'crimpelene' perhaps?

bundle Wed 10-Aug-05 14:31:00

what about a mini crini ?

oliveoil Wed 10-Aug-05 14:31:58

They've called them something else instead of puffballs though, but I can't remember. Tulip or something.

Has anyone got the new Vogue? I was tempted a lunchtime.....

olive, i've hidden it at home, for a sneaky look when the girls are in bed..the anticipation is killing me

leggings?! LEGGINGS? are they mad? no one looks good in leggings, if you're skinny you look like a stick and if you're fat you look like two walking pork sausages.

Leggings this season must be worn under a skirt though. Not alone.

oliveoil Wed 10-Aug-05 14:36:43

Bundle - let me know if it's any good and I will buy one tomorrow, you can be the magazine 'pusher'.

oliveoil Wed 10-Aug-05 14:37:50

Leggings with denim mini skirt and flat ballet pumps look good. Not that I wear this, but have seen young slips in it around town .

bundle Wed 10-Aug-05 14:45:17

a bit poo brown

Nbg Wed 10-Aug-05 14:46:39

no no no it's just all wrong.

Why would anyone do it to themselves?

bundle Wed 10-Aug-05 14:47:20

mini anything is OFF as far as I'm concerned (mutton/lamb) even over a stack of leggings. over a knee-length floral dress is OK though (top shop have some cropped leggings for 12.99)

northerner Wed 10-Aug-05 14:49:15

There is a rule that applys to wearing mini's - not over 25 I think.

Nbg Wed 10-Aug-05 14:50:35

I did buy a mini (don't ask) and decided it did not look good with cellulite so it has never been worn, and as for wearing leggings underneath, I think that looks worse!

northerner it's known as a Fashion Felony in our house

thick black tights ok if your legs aren't too chunky

oliveoil Wed 10-Aug-05 14:53:20

With black tights a mini is ok but make sure the length covers the fat bit of your thighs before they go thinner again. Does that make sense?

oliveoil Wed 10-Aug-05 14:53:43

<waits and hopes everyone else has fat bits>

gingerbear Wed 10-Aug-05 14:54:03

Zara was full of purple and green GYPSY SKIRTS!! Haven't we had enough of them already?

bundle Wed 10-Aug-05 14:54:31

olive, you mean some people don't? (ie have fat bits)
