I had birthday and Christmas money to spend.
I went to Primark and got some stretchy tops, some vests, 2 pairs of pumps, 2 blouse type tops and 2 pairs of jeans.
I got a day bag from Next.
I also got this dress which I'm so pleased with and it looks lovely on, even if I do say so myself. I'm thinking about wearing it for my sisters wedding in Feb.
I also managed to get H to buy some skinny jeans, he wasn't too keen on them but he came round to the idea.

Where is the dress from?
12/12/2013 at 11:18
Sounds successful. You usually have trouble finding stuff, don't you???
Skinny jeans for your H? I love a man in skinny jeans.

AK he usually wears baggy jeans and is reluctant to change style but they look much smarter and he's coming round to my way of thinking.

Good haul and lovely dress! I've transformed my H recently SW, he's got numerous pairs of these trousers & chinos - he used to moan if he didn't have his trackys on

That dress is lovely. Glad you has a successful shopping trip. Men are hopeless aren't they? H lived in trackies before we got together.

My H lets me dress him.
His ex wife hated the way he dressed, so he ended up looking like he'd fallen into GAP, as that was what she liked. His style matches my own, so he has basically swapped one "wear this" wife, for another, but one who has taste hahaha.

I like those ones from H&M Belle, that's where he got his jeans from. I might get him some of those for Christmas.

He's got a really dark navy, a red and a brown in the H&M ones, plus a red and brown in the Matalan ones. The H&M are more smarter, could definitely get away with as work wear - couldn't believe they are £14.99!

Good price aren't they? I think I'll get him the dark navy ones, think I might be pushing it too much with red or brown

What does he normally wear SW?
12/12/2013 at 13:35
Well done SW sounds like you did really well. Love that dress!

What does he normally wear SW?
He dresses quite well but in the past he used to buy things that were far too big for him so I've convinced him that he should wear slim fit stuff as he is lean but quite muscular so looks good in fitted stuff and now that he's got the slimmer fit jeans he looks much smarter.

Sounds like you've got lots of lovely things, gorgeous dress!
I've had a few successful shopping trips in the last week - bought most of my Christmas presents now (had only bought C's up until last week - just a couple left to buy), finally got myself a new handbag after looking for over 3 months and having bought 4 previously that all got sent back, and also bought a new winter coat from Zara (my Christmas present from MrDD)

I love that dress, did they have other colours? I need some nice dresses to take to Sydney in April with me as they tend to do cocktails in the evneing
12/12/2013 at 14:25
I didn't see any other colours CW.
You are a right jet setter, your always away you lucky thing, I'm very jealous x

LOL it's a work thing but I know I will be expected to socialise with the team and apparently in the city when they do drinks it is dress up cocktails so I need to take at least 2 nicer going out dresses. Don't worry I will be bugging everyone next year for ideas
