So I have fallen in love….
La Redoute is a French mail order company with a catalogue (an actual printed one you can flick through!) and a huge online shop selling womens, mens, kidswear and home. It is super stylish as you would expect from the French but also very reasonably priced! I placed my first order this month from their Summer sale and I have become utterly obsessed.
Have a look at my first 5 buys…
1 – ‘Soft Grey’ gingham ruffle shirt
Fitted with a western vibe, I am sold on this cute top. Perfect with skinny jeans and a ‘yee-ha’ attitude…
2 – ‘Mademoiselle M’ lace blouse
Very feminine with lovely lace detailing this top looks so much more expensive than it was…for modesty you do need a cami underneath though!
3 – ‘Soft Grey’ tie waist midi skirt
I’d been looking for a midi denim skirt for a while and this was perfect…and I do love a skirt or dress with pockets!
4 – Soft Grey’ high neck blouse
Inspired by blogger Erica Davis from the un-edited (again) I had to order this. Come Autumn I will be wearing this with EVERYTHING in fact I am already!
5 – ‘Soft Grey’ embroidered peasant top
Want a throw on summer top? This is perfect…and the embroidery and detailing are top notch…
And best of all, all these items were less than £15 each!
Other things I loved – you can order everything ‘click and collect’ to your local Hermes parcelshop so delivery is free and returns are free too. This is great when you’re still getting used to the sizing and want to order 2 sizes to compare. They have lots of customer promo code offers for full priced items – usually 20/25% but sometimes have a 40% off code so keep your eyes peeled – its worth signing up to their newsletter to keep in the loop. I have only bought in the sale but can’t wait for the new season offers.
Their home range is AMAZING! So far I’ve bought the most stunning rug. I blogged about it here and am coveting quite a few other pieces for when we decorate our lounge. The quality and design is some of the best I’ve seen in a non-premium range.
Things I didn’t love – I think you could say that La Redoute customer service is hit and miss. I had a parcel go missing (which finally got found), email confirmations werent always sent and delivery can take 7-10 days. However it is worth putting up with the less than slick operation as the clothes are wonderful quality and feel so different from the usual High St offering.
I’ve just placed another large order so look out for more items coming soon…
