Beauty & Fashion: Share Your Purchases/Wants/Regrets etc

Fri Sep 14, 2012 1:27 pm

Ladies

This is a thread to share your favourite buys, knowledge about sales, wants, get advice, post reviews about retailers and in general chat about beauty and fashion products.

Just a few things to keep in mind, always be respectful of each others taste and budget. This is not a thread for you to slam me because I spent $800.00 on a bag, nor is it a thread for me to slam you for buying something 'cheap' and made of polyester (or vice versa, given I have committed both sins in the past...)

Here are a few things I am seriously considering buying, sadly I am in the process of changing careers and cannot really justify them!

Allanah HIll Cardigan - He is Having an Affair
Sheike Ace of Spades Dress

ETA: The photos look fine on my screen but can someone please let me know if they are HUGE as for some reason I have posted pics before that are actually way more enormous than I realise!

ETAA: Right removed the pictures, apparently my computer is a bit special and can see HUGE things totally normally....

I have my eye on this trashy diva dress

We have a friends wedding 12/12/12 and DH is in the wedding so I need something that won't clash with the red and black theme and also not red/black as I don't want to look like a bridesmaid. Unsure of whether or not to wear a crinoline skirt underneath to pouf it out.

The theme is red/black vintage

You've sold me! That will be my dress for the wedding! I've found the flared skirts really suit my body shape which is why I also love review! Which colour to get for the crinoline?
Vintage style is huge with some of my friends at the moment and my sisters. The tangerine coloured dress my older sister wore to our wedding is from pinup girl clothing as well. Love that website!

Oh no, length or width? Or both? Maybe they will stretch out again to their normal size? I don't recall shrinking anything dramatically but I only wash in cold so maybe that's it.

Are the curve id jeans good? I'm thinking about getting some

You are telling me - I have no idea how he has managed it - but he has! I am thinking he has washed in hot and then put in the dryer also on hot. I usually wash in cold and air dry all denim.

Shrunk an inch at the waist and an inch in the leg, I laid them up against my other pair and they are WAY smaller, could not even get them close to done up!

Oh gosh I would love a pair of genuine fabulous heels - I am looking at some new positions that pay a bit more, if I get them I am toying with either these or these. I figured something so classic I would actually get the wear out of them :)

My biggest regret was rushing out and buying a dress 2 hours before myself and FH were due to leave for my birthday weekend away (nearly a year ago today!). My hair dresser the night before convinced me FH was going to propose (he did) and I needed a new dress for the occasion.
Rush shop = happy sales girl who knew shed get a sale = me buying a dress I hate. $280 for a very short white low cut strapless dress. I seriously have no boobs, weird cubby legs, argh, makes me cringe! It's for sale! I'll post a pic. Some 16 yo girl would love it! ;D
Ps after dinner in this crap dress we went back to the hotel and I changed into track pants and one of his jumpers, that's when he proposed :D

Oh squee!

You are so lucky getting to wear cool weather clothes all the time. Bloody Australian sun makes it too hot to wear skirts and tights at least 5 months of the year. And a few more I am slightly too hot but darn I look cute in layers!
