It looks absolutely beautiful on you, but if you’re even a tiny bit uncomfortable I bet you’ll never wear it.

I’ve just returned two pairs of straight leg black jeans to M&S (ordered two lengths), and that was because even the shortest length were too long for me to wear with flats and I just knew I’d never wear them.

I've found it sold somewhere else in a 14 so I've ordered it to see. Fingers crossed.

My DISCO jumper is perfect, it is shot through with rainbow metallic thread, as expected. Utterly perfect for Shedcember 2021!

I got to Outfit to spend my vouchers. They'll let you spend them but only up to 50% of the total of your spend, but better than nothing. Most of it was 30-50%, so I got a pair of jeans, a green sparkly jumper, a black cord shirt dress, a handbag and a ballet style wrap top thing for £40 once I'd used my voucher. Couldn't try any of it, but in a rare 2020 miracle, it all fits!

Felt so sorry for the staff, trying to explain gift vouchers/returns etc etc, must be quite grim but they were being very cheerful.

Those look lovely. Can you go back & spend the rest of the voucher?

I could, but I decided I'd be spending for the sake of it (given I'd have to spend another £15 to get the rest of the £15 off. Oasis and Warehouse were totally gone, I'm a bit beyond Topshop, not mad about Wallis, rarely buy anything in Miss Selfridge, so it was only really the DP stuff, and it looked like they were running down the stock so there wasn't much else I actually wanted. Although they did have a lovely petrol coloured coat for £49, but honestagod I think S will divorce me if I buy another coat. I'll probably divorce me too. I literally don't have anywhere for another one.

Thank you! I really like it. Not much use for it right now mind you...

That is ridiculous sizing! There's no way you are a size 14!

I'm glad it fits though as it's lovely.

I have put on some pandemic pounds, but the waist band on this is comfortable but not generous and I don't think I've gained that much.

I'm pleased that the size 14 fit!

My Black Friday Clark's purchases are all going back alas; I've only walked around a little in heels and my knees are on fire which tells me I still can't wear them. :ella: But I am in love with my Baukjen purchase (I got £20 off but it's still expensive). It is soft, flattering and beautiful. I absolutely love it and like all my Baukjen pieces I will wear it to death.

I've bought myself a bag. Because obviously I need a vast array of bags for all the times I'm not going anywhere :mog:

It’s such a cute little bag though. Perfect for keys, a card, sunglasses and a mask.

Isn't it! I really liked the shape and couldn't not buy it.

I got VIP sale access and ordered these. I expect some not to suit/fit, like last time. But I hope they actually get delivered unlike the time before that. I wanted the black Nike leggings in a cobalt blue but they weren’t available, and I dithered over a khaki yoga jumpsuit that I really don’t need.

I love that shape of bag. The first handbag I ever bought was like that.

I love the middle top and the bottom right leggings, Pip.

That’s also a super cute handbag, Smal.
