They do such lovely timeless basics. I'd been away for a while, pursuing Zara et al. But when I walked into Toast in Bath yesterday it felt like coming home. Maybe the style is just 'more me'. Thinking about it, I do, unhindered, tend to look a bit losse and baggy - which is (or can be) the Toast look.
But I defy anyone not to like these beauties.
Green 'boyfriend' sweater - so so soft. Long, forgiving, cosy. But not sack like. What's not to love? Er, well the price. I am waiting for the sale.
Breton tunic dress. This is lovely. And not a bad price really, especially considering how well Toast stuff lasts. Nice length - just above knee on me (5ft5).
Merino Waterfall coat. I didn't try this on, but it looked sublime on the mannequin. Another 'snap it up in the sale' item for sure.
Denim coat. Just love it.
Boxy breton top. Surprisingly the boxiness looked good, and not too boxy, jut not clingy, which is sometimes an issue with stripy tops. Being of a larger bosom, I sometimes struggle with 'wavy' lines not straight stripes. Not with this one. Love the elbow patches with contrast direction stripes too!
Last but not least I love this tunic, which has a sweatshirt type consistency. Especially love the neckline. It's on my sale wish list.
I'm afraid I forgot to take changing room photos in Toast, but I did take some in River Island.
I saw this coat there. I liked it apart from the fact that the checks at the seams didn't match up, which looked very odd indeed. A shame as it was a nice coat, a very useful weight for the (hopefully soon to arrive) Spring - and only £40.
Nice coat.....(from the front)
Shame about the non-matching side seams - pet hate.
(You don't get that in Toast....)
By the way, I would urge people to get themselves to Gap. I also got a bit of a haul in there. They have up to 50% off. I bought:
These dresses - one chambray, one navy - down to £29
This sweater - love the waffle knit £17.48
The White Company also have a sale on (up to 50%) and I nearly bought this knitted peacoat, as they call it, now sold out online but a few instore, but decided it would not wash well (never have much success with knitted jackets)... I reserve the right to change my mind though!
