Where I say affronted.
I meant what I said. No new clothes for me this year. (Man, it is hard.)
That doesn’t mean I can’t browse online, though. Particularly if I want to look at a thing of beauty. Like a People Tree dress. On sale.
Their clothes are perfect for mums – you might even say they were made with mums in mind. Why? Because these are the sorts of clothes that look better with a few curves inside them, you get me? In other words, if you’ve got meat on your bones, you’re going to be a knock-out in a People Tree dress.
Also, they’re not made of silk, crepe, nylon, or any other fabric you can only dig out for a wedding. As most of their dresses are made of jersey or cotton, you can throw them on in the morning with seconds to spare and still look fab. And chuck them in the wash after feeding a toddler.
I know we’re in the middle of an arctic freeze, but let’s think about spring, let’s think about summer. They’re out there, somewhere, and wouldn’t it be nice to have some lovely clothes to greet them? Take advantage of the sales NOW and reap the benefits in a few months time.
This is my pick of the People Tree sales items:
God I love this Olivia Bow Stripe dress, £33.60:
I’ve lusted after this Rosabel dress before, and now it’s £17.40. INSANE! (It’s times like this I hate my shopping embargo.)
This checked skirt would look lovely in the summer, with a simple short-sleeve shirt or vest. And it’s £13. I’m affronted I don’t have it.
Finally – this isn’t on sale but I’ve fallen for it. Would look so gorgeous with some jeans. Cotton sweetpea top, £35.
