All Saints
I am mostly a lurker, but I was so shocked to discover that there is no All Saints thread that I decided to start one myself. (I looked through the forum, used search, and found no thread; if there is one and I somehow managed to miss it, I apologize! )

I didn't think they were anything special before, but the fall-winter collection made me seriously swoon. And despite the prices being slightly higher than what I can afford, I'm waiting on a few pieces to arrive right now...

Anyone else? Any tips on quality, sizing, durability?

I already have this dress in black. (picture from asos)

I have that dress in black too!!

I absolutely LOVE All Saints. When I was in Glasgow last year I spent most of the time saving money to buy stuff there, haha. Now I miss that shop so much...

I love how most of the things in the shop are black/grey/white, and how you can't really tell if something belongs to the summer collection or the winter one. The rock vibe and how things are cut are lovely... Thank God my boyfriend lives in Dublin and there's All Saints there!

Leather jackets have never been my "thing", but that one has seriously made me want to reconsider! I limited myself to ordering a couple of knits off the website though... this time.

I don't have the leather one, but the cotton version. I love leather jackets (and All Saints has beautiful ones) but I couldn't afford buying one.

Which knits have you bought? The first thing I bought there was a bright pink cardigan. I love and use it a lot (I wore it today, actually).

I have liked some of their stuff before but I always felt it was overpriced for what it was.

It is. Which is why I appreciate sales There's one here and its a good store. Not as good as the one is Spitalfields though. They do beautiful dresses

I bought quite a lot of things during the sales, because they're pricey, but all the year you have a 15% discount if you show them your student card

Wow, too bad the student card doesn't get you a discount online, mine is still valid for a few more months!

I bought the pirate cardigan and a snood because I had some written word-of-mouth confirmation that they were really nice and soft. Guess I'll see in about a week if that's true, right now they're still stuck in some sorting office in the UK (I love online tracking..!). And I'm a sucker for soft woolly knit cardigans and accessories, during fall-winter season it's nigh impossible for me to leave stores without purchasing a scarf or a pair of gloves. Living in a colder corner of Europe does that to a person!
