I desperately want a pair of pastel yellow pants, preferably full length, but cropped ones could be OK.
After several misguided attempts, I know I do not want skinny jeans, which is all I've been able to find.

I am yet to find a coloured pair of trousers that aren't skinny.  Try a size too big, this is what I did and they looked much better.

I will look out for some yellow trousers for you on my shopping trips and let you know if I find any.

Thank you all for your replies!
The Next ones aren't as yellow as I want (I love yellow, but look dreadful with it near my face!)
I've got an unread Ezibuy catalogue on the table that I stole from my mother. Off to read it!

I also asked one of the school mums today where she got her mint green pants, which looked really nice on her, so I'll be trying Jay Jays tomorrow (2 for $60).  They might be too skinny too though.

Just jeans had some non skinny coloured jeans recently. They're pretty reasonably priced too!

But Macy's is my fall back for things I can't find in oz.

I would love a really well fitted black business jacket. All of the ones I try on make me look boxy.

There are some here that aren't skinny - I think skinny jeans should be banned, they are very unflattering.

Crossroad had some brightly coloured cropped pants, I think they had yellow.

Crossroad also had stretchy maxi stuff, not sure about skirts but plenty of maxi dresses.


I want some A line dresses without the seam under the boob, so they just flare out. Finishing just about the knee or just below mid thigh would be nice.

rockman's had heaps of pastels when I walked past the other day, not sure if they had yellow...

I've booked my sister to go shopping with me tonight.  No Rockmans or Crossroads at our shopping centre, but we definitely have a few places to look!
Thank you!

Tassiegal and Unicorn, will keep an eye out for stretchy maxi skirts and no-seam A-line dresses.

Stretchy maxi skirts - try Vigorella, mesop, Metalicus (online at Birdsnest and others), stock changes regularly but I've got lovely Vigorella and mesop maxi skirts, full and tube versions in colours.

There's also a brand called "Splendid" in the US (available in lots of online shops) that does lots of this sort of thing

Ezibuy has a few at the moment.

Asos has some too.

sussan.com.au have some yellow pants. Looked nice. Not bright but not pastel. Just a nice yellow.

#19 tassiegal

Thanks Georgie01!

I did look on asos but couldn't find something I liked. I will try the others you mentioned.

I'm being fussy as I was hoping to find something in a coral colour.

sick of skinny jeans in every shop
want some red jeans but refuse to have ones that look sprayed on me
im 36 a size 12 and have a bit of a tummy so want something slightly higher than a low rise but not too high and just a straight leg though will take a bootleg if i have to
found a nice green pair of jeans on ebay that are perfect but no red (think that the green were sussan)

Anyway anyone know where can find red jeans, and not a deep red, want red red original.gif

Under $50 would be super

A plain, possibly A line dress in a color other than black, without the breast line seam, that actually goes past my thighs.

And some simple tips for work. No bat wings, no floaty stuff, no frill making the bottom of the shirt, no thick waistband, just nice, simple tops.
Oh, and on a budget!

Bah!

I have been desperately seeking some short sleeved shrugs for work to wear with singlets/sleeveless tops. My work place is pretty casual and through winter I wear these tops with a cardy or jacket but it is too warm to do this now. I can not find any nice shrugs at all.

Preferably I would like them in several colours so not too expensive.

I am plus size but shrinking at the moment with a lot of hard work lol so probably looking for around size 18-20 in these (especially as they don't need to do up). Anyone have a suggestion?

I will be keeping an eye out for the items PPs are after as well while searching for these.

#24 VioletRose

Veryclucky, Crossroads have Bolero 4 colours
If you don't mind not being able to try it on amazon have a good selection too.
