You are right about the colors.

I am disappointed at their SS11 collection. I have bought more than several from COS, most of which are tops. They kinda lost their shape after a few wears and washes. But they are so cheap that I don't know if I should complain.

Their new SS11 looks are now online, not a fan of all the black outfits but I fell in love with this shirt dress.

I finally was able to see some of the mens collection since they took the time to update the site. Now I am wishing I could unsee it.

I really like this top but I don't think it's worth 69, I'll probably still end up buying it though

The mid season sale is really disappointing. I did buy some stuff, not on sale though:

Inky blue wallet


Necklace

^Nice buys! I agree, the sale was disappointing. I ended buying a cotton cardigan but not a sales item.

I was wondering if I should get the bright orange cotton cardigan, but I just know I'll never wear it even though the colour is really awesome. I do love their cardigans. And they had lots of pretty dressy tops, not on sale though, but I won't get enough use out of them to justify paying full price. Oh well, we'll see if there will be further markdowns...

I think I skipped right past the very bright coloured section because I have too much colour in my wardrobe at the moment. I'm trying to build my basic wardrobe and I think COS have some good basic items for a reasonable price. Got a lovely white dress shirt last week and the grey cardigan this week.

^I definitely think the more trend-based items will be further reduced.

I bought the leather bomber jacket...30% off.

I always wanted a "clean" looking leather jacket but I'm hard to satisfy - sometimes.

yeah, I love to get my basics at COS.
Their selection of basic tees, wool/cashmere jumpers, cotton shirts,lacey underwear and wool trousers (AW season) are of excellent quality (better than most highstreet brands), and relatively cheap if compared to other basic brands like petit bateau or Filippa K.

The thing I love the most about COS, though, is their draped dresses and tops. Some of them are VERY Lanvin (I just happen to love Alber, so that is fine with me). I could buy the same white draped dress over and over again, simply because in my mind that is the ultimate dress. I've spotted a sleeveless draped white t-shirt dress, I really want it but I already have this one from a couple of seasons ago...


It does have short sleeves, and I've used it lots, but there's no reason to buy the same item twice...or is there?

^I have that one too! It's good but I always hated the sleeves so I never wear it without something over it. If there is something even better... maybe you should go for it...
