My regular-ish round up of what I’ve been buying from the cheapest clothes website on the internet!
Blue and green fringed kimono
I’ve always loved blue and green together. I wore this over a black vest and turned up indigo skinny jeans this week (I also managed to “lose” two of the fringes as I ran over myself with my office chair at work!). Looking at the label, it’s originally from Matalan. It will also work well as a beach cover up when I’m in Greece next month.
Multi maxi skirt
I loved the colours and pattern on this, although I do find that drawstring/elasticated waists make me look a bit thick around the middle. OK, so it’s actually my love of food and wine that makes me look thick around the middle.
Floral midi skirt
This is so pretty! Love the colours and the shape, and the thick scuba-ish fabric mean that it’s pleasingly full and also doesn’t crease (possibly the most important consideration of all in any clothes purchase). Unfortunately it doesn’t have the same effect on my midriff as it does on the model which, for £5, I would have sincerely expected, but hey ho.
Denim tunic dress
This is looser than I would have usually worn in a dress this style (it’s hard to gauge sizes in a lot of cases on the E5P website because you don’t know the manufacturer – and we ALL know that different manufacturers have different sizing – plus sometimes it’s just an S/M or M/L choice) but I like it. It has a tabard feel, and the husband said it reminds him of Game of Thrones armour (?!) which is apparently a good thing! It will also look good layered over a black polo neck jumper in winter.
Black cold shoulder midi dress
This is a Primark one I think, and I need to shorten the length a little I think as it’s too in between on me, but I really like the style and think it will be lovely with some wedge sandals.
Annoyingly, I haven’t really been wearing any of my new purchases recently, because we’re so upside down at home that I can’t get into some of my wardrobes, lots of things are still packed up from the move and we’ve had to empty the bedrooms for the workmen. So at this rate I’ll have a whole heap of new stuff ready for next year!
Thanks, as always, for reading! x
