Some days ago I was away to look around a bit, you know, to get prepared to Paris (YAY! :)) and because it’s a thing I love to do anyway. Spring is around the corner, and having finished with the sales, I’m intrigued what’s new.
As usual, I started with Zara. I spotted this short bomber jacket, and tried it on from simple curiosity. It wasn’t bad, but I have enough bombers, and this length would bother me to death (or at least until I sell it :)). Anyway, if you want to jump on the bomber wagon, it’s not too late plus it’s not that expensive either.
The rest of the things required the fitting room, so I went. This top on the pictures is from Zara Join Life collection, and assumably it’s an attempt for sustainability and environment. Not that the 99% of the store would be different, but it’s a start. I liked the ruched details on this top, but it wasn’t convinced me. It’s not bad, yet I felt it was, somehow, poorly made. Moved on.
Next up same top, different shoes. Sock trainers to be exact. I imagined how comfortable could these be for strolling around Paris, they could be for sure, but again, I didn’t like them on me. They were so big? My Nikes are comfortable too, but those are simple black trainers. Finally I decided on my seemingly newest phobia.
I’ve never known about it, but few days ago Man Repeller’s comment section called my attention to this small hole phobia – excuse me, but I won’t look up for the name, I’m terrified enough to see that picture of the lotus pod again – and I tried to win over it, but makes me feel sick nonetheless. I wish I wasn’t so curious. And I warn you, try to avoid it too, it’s pretty contagious. And inexplicably disgusting. Bah….
Moving on yet again. You’ve probably seen this built in corset top already circulating on Social Media, it’s ok, and pretty clever, with giving the illusion of a bustier but without the suffering to put it on or be in it. Anyway, I know it’s silly, because this is the purpose, but I didn’t like how tight it was. Nothing out of 4.
This tee wasn’t intended, but oh, well, I cannot resist a good graphic tee, and somehow I felt the urge for a total (washed) black and white one – which by the way goes more than nicely with my jeans and City bag-, so this one came home with me. No regret. 🙂
Moving further on the purple/violet/girly(?) line, I had to try this ruffle top on the boarder of pink and light purple, officially called light pink jumper. The fabric is lovely, it’s mostly cotton, therefore not too warm , but ideal for early spring and it’s so soft. I like the sleeves too.
This is the last one for today. This jumper was more on the violet side, and first I thought I loved the sleeves, until a realised it’s a pain in the booty to put a jacket over it, even though it was my spacious bomber jacket. I also think it’s a bit overpriced for £35, my other purple one from H&M was 30 quid and has proper hems and nicely done puffer sleeves, so I left this one behind eventually. Maybe I’m more in a need of a purple hoodie… hmm… 😉
So this is it. I didn’t find anything interesting in other stores so far. But maybe next time. And eventually I left with a new jumper and graphic tee, so I’m pretty pleased. 🙂
What do you think?
