    I just ordered some things in the La Redoute sale and they gave me a referral thing that if you use it gives you 40% off or 10% on sale items. Drop me a PM if you want it, it's valid for 6 months but you have to be a new customer.

    So I think I may have watched too much 1940s dramas etc over Christmas. Mind you I have always loved old fashioned and vintage clothes from tge late 30s and 40s up to 1950. And I love getting a bargain. This still had its tags on. Never worn.
    Anyway... It is absolutely beautifully made. Really heavy warm, wool, fully lined skirt with inverted pleats. Gorgeous weight. Hangs beautifully. I put it on with black knee high boots and a black jumper and it really is lovely. Very grown my question is this. Is it too Ms Marple..? It is perfect on the waist and very warm. It hits midcalf. I think its a lifetime skirt...I'm stone mad about it. The pic doesn't do it justice.

    I just don't want to look like I'm living in the past. But then again...

    What do ye think?

    My mum got me this ring back in the summer but I haven't been able to wear it cos of work. I've been off for a while and I'm in uni until mid Feb so I can wear it!

    Gorgeous. Boots would take away from Miss Marple. As long as you don't wear it with a fairaisle cardi and flat brogues you'll be fine.

    Bollocks. Brogues and a fairisle cardi would be awesome! :cool:

    I actually have a fairisle jumper...and brown brogues *
    It might look just a bit over the top ....having said that I would love to have the guts to wear them all together :D

    For now I'll wear black knee high boots that have a 3 inch heel and a plain top. The skirt is so well made it's unbelievable the work that has gone into it. I have never seen anything like it.

    *I really should have been living in the 40s and 50s.

    Eta...oh I have cream woolen stockings too... might look a bit Nora Batty though

    I love your skirt Lupa and I absolutely adore women’s clothes from the 1930s :oops: I couldn’t pull it off but sure you do!

    A good look most definitely, but a fair isle jumper would sit better with a pair of basketweave Noregian shoes imho. Suedehead/smoothie heaven.....

    Cloo Surfeit of lampreys

    This jumper - a bunch of my jumpers this year developed holes under arms etc and/or are frankly too tight and too short for my middle-aged belly. Tried on quite a few, but liked this one from John Lewis
