  • Is there somewhere in town a fellow could buy a top hat? I know I can buy online but I have no idea what size I'd need. I have rather a large head so would ideally need a measurement.

    There's a hat shop in Stephens Green SC, not sure of quality or sizes, but they defo have top hats.

    Well then, I must pop in there and have a look. I know the place you're talking about- it's at the end of the escalators. It just never came to mind.

    Thanks Twee.




  • Is there a H&M in Galway? I checked their store locator and there's none showing up. I hope it's a mistake and there is a store there :(

    There is definitely no H&M in Galway. Athlone or Limerick any good?

    Nope unfortunately I am not near Athlone or Limerick. :(

  • I just spotted this bag on Brown Thomas website and immediately fell in love, its beautiful.

    Anyone know where I might find something similar, preferably at a lower price? €525 is unfortunately way out of my budget. :(

    I really need to win the lotto.




  • I used to post all the time but since I had my little girl 15 months ago non-necessities have gone out the window! Well for me anyway, she's the very height of toddler fashion :D

    Anywho! I used to be quite quirky, vintagey. Dresses everyday and heels. However I'm finding I don't look right. I look and feel much better smart/casual. Superdry bodywarmer, nice top, skinny jeans and uggs or plimsolls. I even wore a lipsy dress to a wedding and it suited me much better than my many stop staring dresses.

    So what do I do? Give up on my old beauties and start building up a wardrobe of yummy mummy clothes? (Dear god!) or persevere with my old clothes and maybe experiment with different new pieces? Do your worst fashiony typed ;)

    Mix smart casual with vintage pieces and accessories like old shoes and bags or a funky hat and jewelry, whatever fits your taste. Try making a pinterest board and to get inspired. Theres so many millions of style variations out there I say keep experimenting until you find something that fits your personality and don't resign yourself to clothed you feel trapped in ",)




  • Never thought id be asking this question as the solution is to not wear them but kinda don't want to buy another pair. So I have a pair of susst shoes loverly got them for a wedding last year but feck they are a killer on the big toe. I don't normally were heels, would have lots of flip flops person. Anyone here have any tips on how to make them cosier or not so sore on the toes, they are fine when you first put them on but half an hour later tis ouch.. Just don't have the cash to go buy another pair so looking for ideas, I really thought of bubble wrapping them haha

    I bought susst black heels lately as they were only €15 and found the same problem! Only thing I can think of is using a shoehorn on them to stretch them out a bit




  • didn't even think of a shoe horn thank you might work.. yeah I think tis the brand alright I as going mad as I brought two pairs and went with wearing these on the day and when I returned the others she said oh yeah the susst are a killer..was miffed she didn't point that out to me at the beginning..

    Noooo :eek: All the lovely clothes :(:(




  • Noooo :eek: All the lovely clothes :(:(

    My initial thought! I think all is okay though its scary to think someone would do it intentionally.




  • Luckily, noone seems to have been injured. Some of the tweets are so unbelievable with people complaining about not getting their orders and 'thanking' Asos for inconveniencing them. Seems so selfish.




  • Guys is it okay to wear a cardigan to an interview for a position as an assitant in a pharmacy? I have a blazer but the black doesn't match the pants I was planning on wearing and I feel the cardigan just looks better than a poorly matched pants and blazer? The dress code says smart attire. Any advice much appreciated :)




  • I've worn a cardigan before, and I've seen plenty of others do it too. A blazer would probably be too warm in this humidity anyway, so a cardigan is the sensible option. As long as you look neat and tidy, it's fine!




  • Yeah I'm sure a cardigan will be just fine, once you're well-presented generally. I don't think they'll expect you to stifle yourself in a heavy blazer, just because it's a job interview :)




  • Thanks for the reassurance I've decided to stick to my cardigan, it's nice and new so should look neat and hopefully this interview will be my last for a while! :)

  • Heard at the weekend that Brown Thomas Cork, Limerick and Galway will no longer be stocking Mulberry handbags. Instead, all stock will be available from Brown Thomas Dublin only. One of the sales assistants at the handbags area told me that they'll be phased out in 2-3 weeks. So in future, if you want to oggle at new season or the classics, you will have to scarper to Dublin........Very sad news indeed :(




  • Doing my makeup this morning I did my first eyes eyeliner perfectly, then half way through the second eye it basically dried up :-(




  • Not really off topic but didn't want to post a new thread for this.

    Quiet a 'futuristic' pair of Nikes

    They look absolutely horrific.




  • Oasis - I paid full whack for that stupid dress only a few weeks ago and now you've decided to reduce it to over half price?!? Anyone else ever experience this? I actually visited several shops to find my size in the dress thinking to myself great it'll be sold out soon but no they are all in stock on their website at half price, very frustrating. :(




  • Could you return it and buy it again? :P
    I hate when that happens! It's happened to me a few times that the next day the thing has gone down. Why don't the sales assistants warn you?!

    Absolutely no idea if it would work(just an idea that came to mind) but could you buy one in your size, then if you still have the receipt for the full price one, return the sale dress(with its labels still intact) with the old receipt to get the difference back?




  • Praying desperately that this dress comes back in returns in my size... I have been refreshing this page for the past 4 days to no avail...... Pray for me folks :)http://www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-Baroque-Embellished-Dress/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=3327935&r=2

    I would have done this but I needed it yesterday so no returning now :( I wasn't even mad about it in the first place which is what really annoys me.

  • Does anyone else have as much bad luck as me with the clothing sizes in Penneys?

    I have a few tops from them ranging in sizes 6-14 and they all fit perfectly.

    I bought a peachy-coral one last week, size 12 and its nearly too small on me, yet in most other shops I am a 10 in tops, and 12 in jeans.

    My mum has two pairs of skinny jeans from them, a 10 and a 14, both are the same length, waist size etc when put lying on top of each other.

    So frustrating.
