The Sales Update

Two returns, one success to report back on.  The Whistles cashmere jumper from House of Fraser was a little disappointing.  I liked the colour initially then it felt a bit 'blah' on.  As much as it was probably supposed to be a slouchy fit, it felt large and too non-descript.  The quality was ok, not £195's worth (it original price) and due to the other factors, not £60's worth either.  



The Whistles dress from Asos also came up large, it was gaping around the arm holes and was slightly too big in the body.  It is a nice dress but was more formal/office in the flesh than I expected it to be and as I had it in mind for a wedding, it wouldn't work.  Lesson learnt - Whistles seem to come up larger on me (although some of my older Whistles items don't).


These Bobby dazzlers though - well these are keepers and have already been worn twice.  I am so pleased with them, they have fitted into my wardrobe perfectly.  When a court shoe is too formal (or cold!) and you want a smarter boot (heels play a part here) these work perfectly.  I've worn them with jeans and also with tights and a leather skirt so far.  I have sprayed them with a protector and removed them when driving!  

Boots; Selected Femme
Jeans and top; Topshop
This was my bargain £10 top mentioned in this post, from Topshop
I used a burgundy Coccinelle clutch and kept jewels simple (there were some semi-bling stud earrings going on under the hair though)

  3. Your going outfit is just perfect and that top is lovely on you. It looks so much more expensive than what you paid for it - it must be the way you wear it :)
