Regular readers to this blog will know I’m quite a fan of Very. I have been a customer for a long time now and as well as loving the ranges I also like, as a online catalogue, you can have an interest free account and pay your balance in 3 parts using their ‘take 3’ option. This can be quite useful to spread the cost of things across 3 paydays or split a bigger purchase such as a leather jacket into more bitesize pieces.  And then theres the sales…

Have a look at what I bought recently – 

Definitions asymetric tunic – £9.75 (from £25) – the coral colour sold me on this top and its such an easy summer wear with leggings and sandals.

Vila suedette and stripe breton top – £16 (from £22) – I loved the updating of the classic breton with the suedette top and it works perfectly with the South boyfriend jeans – £15 (from £32) – distressed jeans look great in the summer rolled up with sandals and the dark wash on this pair is just perfect and looks really premium.

Shoe box lace up flats – £10 (from £20) – I’ve been seeing lace-up flats on fashion bloggers everywhere and at this price I couldnt resist!

River Island bib collar – £6 (from £16) – OK, OK its clear I love a collar! I find them so versatile and love the look they create without ruining the line of your clothes. 

South skinny cropped jeans £11 each (from £20) – not the most exciting items in the world, but these will become a wardrobe staple and with their tight capri leg and high waist suit my figure perfectly.

All items available at now while stocks last. New customers can open a Very credit account and get £30 off your first £60 spend using code FDNWW.

Tell me about it, stud…

I do love a bit of detail in an outfit – a flash of metallic, a statement necklace or a great bit of embellishment.  In the words of a vamped up Sandy in Grease…”tell me about it, stud…” and studs are what we have today!!!

I also wore the bright purplely/plum lipstick I recently bought (and loved) from Poundlands new make-up Gallery range (blogged here).  You’ve got to love a bit of make-up co-ordination!
