    I'm looking to get a good Christmas jumper this year and have been underwhelmed so far in my search. I should point out that I'm not a fan of jumpers with humurous quotes. Can anyone point me to some good websites to snap up a good one? Thanks in advance :)

    I'm wearing mine out on Friday but I'm going to wear my Christmas tshirt at some stage this week. December is sooooo short. Need to make the most of it!

    I'd love to find a Christmas skirt or Christmas dress instead of a jumper (of which I have several!)

    Give me a heads up if anybody sees one. :)

    Has anybody seen Christmas shirts in any shops?! The only place I have found any is Penneys, but they were short sleeved and I'm not a fan of short sleeved shirts!

    I've never purcahsed from them but have seen their things advertised on Facebook a bit - they seem to have a lot of Christmas dresses. Some of them I find a bit over the top but there are a few cute ones too: http://www.wantthattrend.com/christmas-swings-sizes-8-22/?sort=newest

    ETA: and if you have any little girls, they also do the same dresses in kids sizes :D

    Looonng time lurker.. Not sure where you live but I've seen them in blanch shopping centre retail park. About 2 doors down from home store and more (it's right beside inspiring ideas). A big Christmas shop. They are on the last isle, on the left, walking towards the back of the shop. That's where I saw them last week. They have different designs from what I remember :)

    Instead of a jumper, I'm going for these this year, not as warm or scratchy.

    I'm hoping to get one of these myself I'm cooking Christmas dinner for the first time I would be far too warm in a jumper

    I got the black reindeer one, it's gorgeous, can't wait to wear it!

    I'm looking for a jumper or hoodie for my Christmas party.

    All the women really go all out with dressing up but i have never been a dress person. Then you have to get a new pair of shoes, top, everything to along with the dress and it's too much expense.

    If i make an effort and dress somewhat Christmassy, it might not be too bad but for the life of me, i don't know what to go for.

    They have lovely t-shirts in Penney's Black with a silver Santa on his sleigh with the words SLAY on it I think its quirkey would look good with jeans and heels/boots or tucked into a leather pencil skirt for a party

    I'm actually sorry now I didn't pick one up

    Did you order from wantthattrend.com? If so, could you answer a few queries?
    Are the based in Ireland?
    Did they deliver promptly?
    Are the sizes reasonable and how short is the dress (I'm 5'7" and don't want to spoil everyone's dinner at the sight of too much leg!!)
    Do they seem OK with regard to secure payment etc?
    Thanks and enjoy your frock!!!

    No problem! They're based in England, I ordered on 14th November & received the dress on 28th, however when I ordered it was a pre-order & said that the expected release date was 17th November. The sizing on my dress was fine and the material is very good quality, I'm 5'6" and it just sits right on the knee so very decent. Seems fine in relation to payment too. Happy ordering!!

  • Registered Users Posts: 393 ✭✭ derb12

    I got one from Penney's this year. But I found they didn't have a great selection compared to prior years. It was only like €15.
