Discovering a Goldmine: New Look Generation 915.

June 15, 2013

You’ve got to be ‘kid’din’, right? Yes, I am talking about the child/teen section of New Look and yes, I am raving about it – at the disgraced un-teen age of twenty. A couple of weeks back, I was eyeing up the influx of denim trend in the regular section, particularly the denim dungaree dresses, and randomly got the brainwave to have a quick gander at the kids’ stuff – on the premise that, if – with my pathetic size 3 feet, I fit in the shoes – surely I’ll fit in the clothes? And I do. And the range is pretty damn good. There are nigh-identical teen-size alternatives to almost every staple piece from the adults’ section, without VAT, so at a fraction of the price. And here’s another bonus: you can still use student discount on top! Here’s an example of some of the things you can buy:

g915 sports luxe crop t-shirt £9.99 | g915 high-waister denim dungaree shorts £15.99

Par examplé, the average price for a dungaree style piece in the adults section, be it shorts or a dress style, gravitated around the £30 mark, whereas, the kids’ versions were only around £22.99. I’d recommend the line to anyone under a size 10 on the whole – I’m a size 6 and have bought an age 9 crop t-shirt, age 13 high-waisted dungaree shorts, age 14 skater skirt and an age 14 baggy sports luxe crop. And I think all of those combined came to approximately £35 – wowzers. One thing I was a tad disappointed with, however, was the thinness of both shirts that I bought: totally see-through for ultimate bra exposure. Great. Annoyingly, for the first time in my history of New Look perusing, the website is down, so I can’t show you any examples of the g915 offerings, but I’ll be sure to update the post with pictures once it’s back in business.

Now I’m going to be scouring the high street to see if anyone else offers the same versatile sizes!

American Apparel Flashsale Picks & Discount Code.

April 25, 2013

Admittedly, I’ve often avoided American Apparel like the plague, purely because it’s so damn expensive – so when I saw that there was a 30% off dresses code, I was sorely lured in. I’ve always been a fan of the easy-going, essentials vibe of their clothing but I’m prone to buying faddy clothes that I wear once and get sick of instead of investing in items that’ll become staples (e.g. the entirety of AA). So I decided to, using the hilarious excuse that it’s my birthday soon (by soon, in over two weeks, hmm), blow just under £100 in less than half an hour. Here are my picks:

Passion For Fashion – Moneysupermarket.com Competition Entry Part 4.

September 24, 2012

Nearing the end of my entries now – isn’t half taking some time but it’s really fun anyway! The penultimate look that I’m creating is: First Date. Admittedly, it does seem a tad odd to me as it feels like yonks ago since my boyfriend and I had anything of a first date – aww. Anyway, this is what I’d wear if we were going for a meal or somewhere nice and I wanted to remind him of why he fancies the pants off me (hahaha):

SheSaidBeauty: Specially Picked Beauty Products – Delivered.

August 6, 2012

Beauty boxes are a growing fad amongst those in the fashion ‘know’ – with the likes of the GlossyBox and LatestInBeauty sending out samples and fullsize beauty/makeup products under a monthly subscription. I’ve known about them for a while now but have always been dubious about how beneficial they will actually prove.
