i have a nice black top but the arms are a bit short (i dont like my arms)

thought a nice sequinned cape thingy would be ok - or am i too late for this fashion yet again

Apparentlyl Primark has/had some nice sequinned shrugs. Otherwise mail order from Red Direct at about four times the price. I think they are on their way out, but they can look lovely. Nice one in She magazine this month.

where was the one from in she?

tried primark - they only had chocolate ones

Matalan had some really pretty ones yesterday: silver, creamy lace and a soft cream furry one I took a shine to.

They were around the £20 mark

Florence and Fred (Tesco) had a really nice lacy shrug but I think it might have been in chocolate. Larger branches might have a better colour range.

OK Cod - caught by the Spelling Police. How's my grammar though.

Oh no, a cape would drive me nuts!! It would just get in the way!

thanks everyone

will try principles - that sounds like a good idea and accessorise

oh and markies

dont want a lacy one - pointless for covering arms

going shopping on sunday
