my beloved skinny jeans
many striped tops
skinny fit cashmere
pencil skirts
lots of bird print
cigarette pants
animal print heels
neon pink
ankle boots
a parka

Come share with me what you will be mostly wearing

Usual stuff - slim leg vintage wash jeans, black skinnies, dresses tights and tan ankle boots (knackered so need new ones)
Cashmere, merino and mohair jumpers in burnt orangey colours and mossy greens
A thick scratchy wooly Shetland green cardigan from Brora that is toasty warm
Cashmere gloves and hat
Mustard cropped coat and stripes underneath
Navy waterproof parka
Charcoal grey fine wool scarf
Grey wedge ankle boots
Rouge noir nails

Also a jaegar merino lined black sequin cape from ebay that I LOVE but it's not easy to wear, but I will wear it dammit.

I need dresses, ankle boots, black/charcoal jacket and dark grey wool trousers, all for work.

And also a cropped leather jacket (have yet to find the perfect one)

Black mid heels (ditto)

Navy silk pussy bow blouse (seen one which was only £799) wink

I am after a waist length v fitted sheepskin jacket if anyone has seen one that doesn't require a mortgage!

noddyholder Fri 16-Aug-13 15:49:12

love this esp the skirt length

I like that Noddy, apart from the clumpy shoes.

What do you all wear on your feet with your cigarette pants in the AW please?

noddyholder Fri 16-Aug-13 16:04:29

I wear ankle boots or brogues/loafers and thin socks

For work, I wear ballet shoes or heels. It's v warm so no need for socks but if it was cold I'd wear nude tights under them, or nude fishnets.

At weekends, ankle boots.

Just thought of a couple more things:

cashmere wrist warmers
Burgundy leather biker jacket

I tend to wear cigarette pants more for going out and I wear with pointed heeled courts.

Sconset Fri 16-Aug-13 21:17:36

Going out?? Whatever is that? wink

Schmaltzing- I often wear converse/Vans/bensimon type plimsolls with miniskirt/opaques combo (casual, not for work obv!)

I agree with the 'hoofy' description!

I think I'm going to do grunge this winter. All the princessy pink coats aren't going to work for me at all.

So:

Ankle boot (pistols/jalouse)
Flannel shirts
Leather skinnies
Indigo skinnies
Grey skinnies
Slouchy cashmere
A kilt (don't yet have one of these)
Sweatshirts
Leather biker
Crombie coat

I think I might join you in the grunge Amber (even though I did it in the 90's too!). I would look like a tool in a princessy pink coat!

noddyholder Sat 17-Aug-13 08:15:11
