Obsession: Ted Baker's Window Print

On my first day back at work after new year (I was at work alone for three days, it got boring!) I spent a good hour unsubscribing from all those "BUY OUR STUFF, AND BUY IT QUICKLY" emails clogging up my inbox. I was getting literally 20 or 30 a day. My bank account couldn't take it!

I kept a few though, ones that are just so pretty (MAC) or useful (ASOS) or ones where I can dream (Net a Porter).

Another one that I kept was the Ted Baker email. I think it's over-priced for what it is, so there's no fear of me accidentally buying something, but I do like to have a peruse of their stock as I love their use of colour and print, often resulting in the perfectly kitsch outfit... and we know I love kitsch!

Well, in their latest collection they have a number of pieces in this amazingly colourful window print. I think it's divine. But now the issue is what to actually purchase?

I'm too old for the shorts, too young for the silk scarf and just not in possesion of the right shaped body for the dress.

I love these shorts and adore the whole outfit....
...if it doesn't have a waist, it's just not for me...

... will I look like a 90 year old if I wear a silk scarf like this?

What to do, what to do?


  1. For once I agree with you lol... I love the pattern!!! I like the dress :-)

    1. Unfortunately I'm too fat for the shorts (and too old!) and the dress and the scarf makes me look like an air hostess. Boooooooooooo

  2. OMG I love this pattern, and the shorts, and the dress. Are you sure you can't pull the look? You could wear the scarf in fun ways....if the other two won't work.

    1. I think I have to sit this one out... or maybe wait for the sale. It's a lot of money for something that doesn't suit me! Booooooo!

      Maybe i should buy it and frame it for my wall instead!
