Dilemma here... do I

a) Travel all the way to Oxford (about an hour) for this - the only one left in the South of England! at £75, also run the risk it doesnt fit (its a 16, im a 16... but you know how it is!)
b) Try and locate one of these although it might involve abit of travel aswell...
c) forget it

Quootie, TXMaxx is awash with teal velvet jackets at the moment, I actually was thinking of you when I was there the other day.

Go to Oxford.

Can't they deliver it to you?

It's lovely btw.

I think cod has the second jacket - I might be wrong though.

Presumably you can't order the principles one online?

Quootiepie · 17/11/2006 12:52

TKmaxx? Do all there stores stock the same sort of thing? I think ive seen one in slough...

I have to have it today/tomorrow I reeeeeeeeeally want to wear it tomorrow night

I think that they do have a lot of the same stock in different ones. Why not try ringing your nearest one to check?

I'd go to Oxford - the Next one seems to be sold out completely all over the country and I'd be surprised if you found one within a 1hr drive.

NB have you tried Principles concessions in JL and Debenhams?

Quootiepie · 17/11/2006 12:58

rung every principles in the area... 2 left, one in London Regent Street, one in Oxford. Luckily its a 16... are principles sizes small though?

Quootie if you are wearing either one I won't be able to speak to you

I have a fear of velvet and can't look at it or touch it

this may of course inspire you to buy and wear not one but two velvet jackets just to keep me away

FrannyandZooey · 17/11/2006 13:00

Have they got other similar ones in your local Principles, so you could go and try on a size 16 to see if it fits, before going to Oxford?

Quootiepie · 17/11/2006 13:11

I said to DH about going a trying on a size 16 in local principles, but he said just go to Oxford.

I wont be wearing it all night, I think I might get hot. Ill take it off for you Although now I have a dilemma that I was going to wear a teal velvet top... hmmmmmm

Quootiepie · 17/11/2006 19:45
