It's not just a river in Egypt

Thanks guys...If it was expensive I would just be   

but I was wondering if it was worth the risk for a cheap versatile wear with anything kinda number.


*thinking thinking*


well heck it's only made from cotton
depending on where you live you can get the same thing from dressmart or even the warehouse
except that it's the wrong season right now

personally i think what you're wearing now is MUCH more you :rofl:

I have not been to Dressmart in ages, some fab stuff there when you get the timing right.

I am going shopping tomorrow for some black trousers (for work so boring kind)....and some material.  I got a cheap sewing machine the other week so I am going to get back into sewing and make mummy proud.

my mother doesn't have power so she leaves her sewing machine here. every time she comes to do sewing i have a few wee alterations ready for her

i'm short and i have short wee legs. even when i buy short leg jeans i end up wearing 4" heels or getting a bit whacked off the bottom

mother's a fashion designer and when i was a kid i somewhat stood out wearing hankerchief (sp) point dresses and other unusual and not very practical clothes to school

one year when she won the fashion awards there was a big sensation as the dress was worn back to front!!! and it ended up making headlines all over the world

So cool having a mum with that kind of talent.  My mum is very similar although she never won anything - she and her friend use to do wedding dresses (well the whole bridal party).

that's right no power

she has a gas oven and fridge and she uses candles for light. if she wants to use a computer or recharge the batteries in her tools she comes to my place or her neighbours. i have no idea how she lives like that but she's happy. she's in a rural location and she didn't want to spend $20,000 putting the power lines in.

as for the designing she did it for several years, had her own boutique and then moved into making her own range of lingerie then sports and gym wear. she "retired" about 10 years ago

MUCH nicer than the other ring. It gets a thumbs up from me. Not sure on price though but if you buy a lot of vintage jewellery you'll know what it's worth

   nope not shocked 

I was so little my first two pregnancys...i bought size 12s at Glassons just for wear around home etc.

They fitted well, and were inexpensive and comfy.

Some of them I still have just for wearing with pj pants in winter.

I went a bit silly with  zaras pregnancy though and bought things I should have with sumsums pregnancy, as I didn't get to wear them long.

But they sold really well on tm.
