A summer top recommendation.

Whilst we were on hols last week we popped over to the Isle of Wight and I found this small shop selling wonderfully coloured floaty tops that felt like silk but weren’t. They can be washed by hand. They are one size. I’m a 14 but they would easily fit a larger size. They are based on Japanese kimonos. I bought one for the hot weather and so look forward to wearing it. The one I bought was China Tree and I think I will buy the Willow pattern too. The company is called One Hundred Stars.

Do you have any recommendations ?

Why Kittylester ? It’s not like* Nankate* to advertise and she has not posted any link that would constitute spam?

Lovely pinafores on the site! smile

NanKate Wed 29-Jul-20 07:28:52

I’m sorry Kitty if I have broken the rules. I thought we could recommend things we had bought.

Greenfinch Wed 29-Jul-20 07:29:06

This is no different from others who recommend Hotter shoes etc.

kittylester Wed 29-Jul-20 07:35:57

Sorry, sorry,sorry.

I thought this was one of those normal over night advertisers. I have apologised to Kate.

I must learn to check who has started a thread.

I've reported my post!! blush

Greenfinch Wed 29-Jul-20 07:40:35

Well done Kitty grin

Marydoll Wed 29-Jul-20 07:42:38

Kitty, I'm sure Kate will understand, you are friends. We all do daft things, without thinking.

Anyway, I'm going to have a look! I love it when people recommend things, I spent ages checking out trainers after the recent thread about dressing stylishly.

NanKate Wed 29-Jul-20 07:45:58

No problem. All resolved. Virtual hug to my friend Kitty

Harris27 Wed 29-Jul-20 07:51:24

This is what puts people off posting! Used to be so friendly.

Esspee Wed 29-Jul-20 07:52:14

Thanks for that Kitty. They are lovely but a bit beyond my usual price range.

Nortsat Wed 29-Jul-20 07:53:03

Oh, it’s a lovely site NanKate, really interesting things.

Did you notice the scarves with city maps (£28)? When we were on holiday in Norway last year, we were in quite a long queue for the funicular railway in Bergen. The woman in front of us was wearing a really beautiful (looked like) silk scarf, with a map of NYC. I kept staring at it, as we queued. I wanted to ask her where she had bought it from, but somehow I just couldn’t.
Now I know !
I am going to buy one today ... and maybe a top ...
Thank you Nan.

By the way, I don’t think you have broken the rules. I once posted about how much I like Moshulu shoes and lots of people went on their website and had a look. Some came back and said they’d placed an order.

China Tree is lovely ... I think Willow Pattern is really lovely too, do buy it. 😎

Harris, Kitty and Kate are friends, there was no malice. I often report early morning spam posts, the scammers tend to come out at night, when they think they won't be noticed and I can see why Kitty reported, she just forgot to look at the poster's name!
An honest mistake, which has been sorted. I bet Kitty feels awful.☹️

NanKate Wed 29-Jul-20 07:59:56

Yes Nortstat I did see the scarf it’s lovely. Do let me know which top you get if you decide to buy one. The kimono jackets look lovely too for the evening.

Esspee I agree they are not cheap but I just couldn’t resist. As my mum would have said ‘it’ll last me out’ 😀

Marydoll Wed 29-Jul-20 08:01:11

I had a look too. I particularly like the bags. The tops are lovely too.

Nortsat, thank you. I have been trying to remember the name of that shoe company for days!!!

NanKate Wed 29-Jul-20 08:01:36

Absolutely Mary. This will be an ongoing joke between us.

Marydoll Wed 29-Jul-20 08:10:05

Nortsat, it's all your fault! I have just purchased a pair of
sale shoes I don't need. 😳 I could have bought a dozen pairs!

Blinko Wed 29-Jul-20 08:24:09

Love these products. Thanks for the tip, NanKate.

Lucca Wed 29-Jul-20 08:42:41

Nortsat my friend has that scarf and they were on a Norway cruise last year ! If her OH walked with a stick it was her

Also I think the spam ones usually end with a web address highlighted.

kittylester Wed 29-Jul-20 08:47:02

I do feel awful but kate has accepted my apology! And I'll buy cake next time she is in my area!!

Morning! Fine to link to (genuine) recommendations too. Here's the One hundred stars site in case anyone else is interested. smile

Lucca Wed 29-Jul-20 08:56:32
