    Retail therapy is great! I love those bonds underwear but I can’t find many places that sell them here in the uk which is a right pain, reasonably priced comfy undercrackers are hard to find!

      Retail therapy’s the best kind of therapy 😉

      i like Bonds but always saw their cotton stuff. These silky ones are just divine! If you want me to help get you some, lmk 🙂

        Ooh that would be really nice of you when you have the time.

        I am sure they have a website so I had better have a look at what size I am, the size has worn off the tags of mine due to a lot of wearing!

        Reply
        • beverly posted on July 16, 2006 at 9:35 pm

          Sure, just lmk the size and what you want and I can pick it up for you next time I’m out. LMK the price you would pay too, as I’ll only get it if it’s cheaper here!

    there’s a factory outlet near Melbourne that stocks Alannah Hill clothes, and they go for about near half the price of the usual. they’re always so pretty and the material is amazing.

    but. too bad they’re a bit too colourful for me! i would love to be able to pull off wearing one of her stuff!

    • beverly posted on July 16, 2006 at 9:39 pm

      Yeah I was always jealous that Melb had it, so glad they have one in Sydney now 😀

      A lady and her friend were next to me in the store.. looking at the clothes, and one said “Good grief, these are girly!!” and they walked out. Heh 😛 So you’re not alone!

    Adore the silk halter – it’s very pretty. I endorse treating yourself after a breakup. I also recommend good upbeat music, like Shakira’s “Ready for the Good Times”, Joanna Pacitti – “Watch Me Shine” and Nelly Furtado “Promiscuous”

    those are lovely, bev! =)

    i don’t know your e-mail address, so i can’t e-mail you this, but i am desperately looking for a vernis french purse, and i know you have one… so do you know anyone who’s selling a slightly used one? i have on already that i paid very little for because it’s full of color transfer, but i wanted to try one out before i went and spent that kind of money on a used but not abused one. i’m in canada (i’m sure you knew that already) so i can’t order from elux, and i live eight hours away from my nearest LV boutique, so that’s not an option, unfortunately.

    i’ve checked with LVLU and the BBB and ebay (obsessively) and can’t find one at all.

    you’re the one person i know who might be able to help me… =)

    i’d love to hear from you: eeyore(at)ontera.net.

    thanks, bev! =)

      If I hear of anyone selling one, I’ll let you know!

    Wow – everything looks gorgeous! My jaw practically hit the floor at the mention of $2000, but I was glad to hear what you actually paid for them – fantastic bargains!
