UK Parliament Speaker requiring ties...

The story of the day that has me shouting at the radio, is all about the Speaker of the UK Parliament wanting smart dressing in the chamber and suggesting that he would be slow to call members to speak who were not wearing a tie. Through out all the reporting I heard, nobody ventured to suggest anyt...

Re: Leggings

I have always thought of leggings as thick tights, where the thickness gives the user the option of not wearing a skirt to cover the interesting bits. Whether the garment covers the foot, or there is just a loop under the foot, or nothing, is just a detail of a particular pair.

Re: Mini T-shirt Dress

Matalan also sell a T-Shirt mini dress in red and green. Just doesn't have the "jersey" bit in the title. I bought a similar very long T-Shirt type of dress from Tesco in black.

Have fun shopping and I am right with you, with your choice of boots.

Re: Converse are making Knee boots again

So I got a delivery....🤠 I spent the next half hour lacing boots, since only the first few holes come ready laced. I worked at keeping the laces flat across each layer and there are two loops on the tongue that the laces go through at the appropriate layer. When I was happy it was a time for a trip ...

Re: Platform shoes - unisex

I also have an old pair of crocs which I live in at home. I can’t say I wouldn’t go out in them, because I have on occasions just left the house and not bothered to check on what was on my feet. One question. In the advert I posted recently, the guy was in crocs with socks…. This to me is similar to...

Re: GR10K ARC SKIRT

What are the zips each side for? They appear to go all the way up so you would have a front and back only connected at the waist.

You can get a similarly look with a cargo skirt.

Re: Overly Flamboyant Outfits Detrimental to Mainstreaming MIS?

And if you wear it with men's sandals, the whole look will be much more accepted than if you wear the skirt with high heels. Liu bang, I think you are missing the point of why some of us dress the way we do. For me, the 5 year old kid, didn’t just want the skirt, he wanted the earrings, the boots a...

Re: An enjoyable (drunken) couple of hours in front of the gogglebox

Living in the UK, Mrs Mouse and I enjoyed the coverage the BBC on iPlayer gives you where you can follow live, on each stage what is happening. As you say, the Paul Heaton set with Rianne Downey was one of the standout sets of the Festival. I also enjoyed Due Lipa and Coldplay as well.

Re: chinese hanfu dress

I wouldn’t wear one of these. Like the kilt I would classify them as ‘costume’ and only for use in an appropriate situation. So should I refrain from making a hanfu skirt for me? I made my own kilts out of non tartan material which I feel free to wear without Scottish baggage. So I was thinking of ...

Re: Sew or just use a belt?

My idea is a big petticoat that would push the whole skirt out and therefore off the ground!

Re: Getting photographed in public

I have been out in public a couple of times wearing just a skirt or dress and I mentioned it on this forum to much praise from members. However, you are right that I am still not fully confident hence the reason I wear a trench coat over my outfit most of the time I go out in public though I was ou...
