  • What Did You Buy Today?

    If you've bought something that you're really excited about, let us know what it is!


    How To Insert Images

    1. You can either insert images using the upload button on the top right of a new post box and then insert it into the post in size 'large' which will show the image full size.

    2. Or you can add the HTML code: [ IMG ] image url [ /IMG ] on either side of your image url. Make sure there's no spaces in the IMG bracket codes though as I had to include them here so they show up.


    They will show up like this:

    I picked up some great things in the sale at ALLSAINTS last week, including their Ori Coat in Taupe, Balfern Plait Jacket in Mushroom, and Roll Neck Jumper in Alpaca Brown. LOVE them! What about anyone else?

      This wasn't today, but my most recent denim purchase was a pair of shrink-to-fit Levi's 501s. I wanted to get in on the raw denim movement and try it for myself. So far I've loved it, but I'm still working on getting the jeans broken in. There hasn't been any fading yet as I don't want to wash them too often. I can see where the whiskering and honeycombs will take place, which is exciting to me. I love raw denim, but I've found that it has ruined jeans with stretch in them for me. I can't hardly stand to wear a pair of jeans with stretch. Anyway, I'm very happy with the purchase. Levi's pull through for me yet again!

        These are wonderful! I can see the creases already taking hold and I am excited to see how they will look after their first wash as well!

          Me too! To get them to shrink I had to submerge them in a tub of hot water, let them drip dry then wear them damp for a couple of hours. It was uncomfortable as you would imagine, but the fit is great. It will be nice once the coloring starts to fade and the jeans continue to develop.

          Haha, yeah it is not a good feeling wearing wet jeans for a while. You feel like a crazy person doing it on purpose. Ha!

          I was looking forward to have these because the way they fit Matt but there was not enough stretch. It looks like I can’t get Topman stretchy enough to be comfortable. I’m bummed. Looks like Luxe London will be it for now and NîMES if they restock with the style I have from them.

          Hi Paul, that's really sad!, my grey ones are very very stretchy (legging style) but they seem to change the fabrics... why is the question!, Matt
