Sometimes I want to repeatedly bang my head on the table.angry

I must say that this one remind me of my mum and watching Greenham Common on the news together grin

Dear god, it's so much worse than I thought it was going to be I actually laughed out loud!

Startail Fri 08-Mar-13 12:06:22

Fortunately I was sitting on the bed or I'd have thumbed the table hard enough to break something.

Honestly what is the fucking point.

Mitchy1nge Fri 08-Mar-13 12:09:41

they are not even very nice clothes

Startail Fri 08-Mar-13 12:11:08

Thumped,

I guess DD1 worked her socks of to get an A* in her science exams, just so she can afford nice underwear and high heels angry

Startail Fri 08-Mar-13 12:13:09

Very cheap and nasty, but DD1 had some kids stuff years ago and there is no escape from the mailing list.

I shall be recognising international women's day with a new pair of high heals and evening dress
I'll need to ask dh first obv. hmm

HumphreyCobbler Fri 08-Mar-13 12:15:51

ffs

Mitchy1nge Fri 08-Mar-13 12:16:11

heals a bit more like it than bonprix grin

chocoluvva Fri 08-Mar-13 12:17:02

YABVU - those tops are this season's must-have pastels or something like that

ick

Mitchy1nge Fri 08-Mar-13 12:20:04

thought this season was all monochrome?

caramelwaffle Fri 08-Mar-13 12:22:21

startail I think you are totally correct.

Startail Fri 08-Mar-13 12:25:47

Trouble is as a SAHM I do feel, a bit, I'd have to ask to make a decent donation to a women's charity, but I never ask to buy clothes.

I was on the mailing list for a few years having bought something once, it seems to have stopped now. It was a bizarre mixture of frumpy tops and crotchless underwear.

Although I accept that my last post also misses the point. Who says we don't need feminism anymore?

kalidanger Fri 08-Mar-13 12:44:03

And now the Bon Prix ads are haunting the sidebar of MyFitnessPal angry

FrothyDragon Fri 08-Mar-13 12:51:30

Get adblocker, kalid. That should fix that issue... ;)

Startail Fri 08-Mar-13 13:24:37

Yes it's totally bizarre, as I get Emails because it had not pink, not mini prostitute age 10-12 girls clothes. but the underwear is very dodgy.

Now a campaign for decent preteen clothes is a rant for another thread.

It's just popped up on the sidebar of my Yahoo mail too, big brother really is watching us (either that or it's been there all the time and I've never noticed it)

WilsonFrickett Fri 08-Mar-13 14:12:18

But ladies, you miss the point!

It's not a myth!
Courts can be chic and comfortable!!!

Dear god and the little fishes is one of the underwear models wearing a tiara to her bed????? Takes the princes shit to a whole new level. (And presumably is a bit sore.)
