Actually it’s still summer, but you know what I mean, there is no stop is fashion world, therefore my mind is already set up to everything new season, even though Hungary with it’s hot dry summer is still waiting for us, so I cannot get over summer just now. Not yet at least, maybe next week or the following one, who knows, there is no rush after all.
Uniqlo is a new favourite of mine, which probably has to do a lot with my love for everything casual classic with fine quality and affordable price. Sure thing, I don’t go there for the latest trends, but the essentials are great and more important nonetheless.
I wore this; Mango parka, Brandy Melville tee, Re/Done jeans, Vagabond mules and Balenciaga City bag. It was a typical British summer weather I would say, but this is also a very me outfit, so there’s no complain here. 🙂
So speaking of classics, I’ve wanted a breton stripe tee for a while now, and while I love the most classic white with navy/black, it doesn’t do too much for me, so I kept buying and discarding them. Until now….I hope.
Because this time Uniqlo has this mustard version, which is much better for me and my warm complexion. Btw it has a boxy fit and pretty boat neck, as you can see, which I dig too, so I bought this one. Did I mention it was on sale with a very good price?
You might remember ribbed this t-shirt a few weeks ago, when I didn’t buy it, but it was still in my mind and luckily for me still on sale (for around 5 quid), so I pulled the trigger this time.
It’s also available in a bunch of colours, like this nude one. Well, we could start an essay about why is a white shirt better or worse than others, but probably the main reason was I felt too Kardashian-y in this one, like I would have worn nothing, which kinda bothers me on the most basic level. I’m still not sure about it though. Hmm… This jacket on the other hand is quite anti-Kardashian as it’s a garment for men and it’s one part boxy brown and one part corduroy, a bit horse like if you ask me, but I like it anyway. It was much better on the male mannequin though. But I’m gonna keep it in my mind just in case, if all the female version would let me down. 🙂
I’m trying really hard to widen my perspective when it comes to brands which I hope you can feel already, but the main reason for my visiting Warehouse was to try something specifically, but while there I took a better look on everything naturally.
Not these utility pants though, I just saw these there hanging, and I liked the fit on the hanger, not on me though, so lets move forward.This dress was the before mentioned reason, I saw it on either Insta or Pinsta :), and I knew I had to try it. Online feedbacks weren’t that great, but I think it’s only the latest proof I have a different body shape than everybody else. Long story short, I tried size 8 and I think it’s super fit, but I also have to admit, it’s better not to have too much boob, which I don’t (fortunately???) :).
TopshopNothing new from Topshop this time, I didn’t even try anything, except this pet furry bag, which I have mixed feelings about. The shape and colour are on point, the fur is soft, but it’s a (faux) fur bag and I cannot start on how much eeeek went trough my head when I tried to picture how it would look like in a few months time, the handle especially. Still eek, but again, that’s just me or the bug in my head probably. And that basket bag is may or may not there for a reason, it’s a nice basket bag, no?
ZaraI haven’t buy anything in Zara for a long time, but I saw this dress and it was so cute, 50s and affordable (£30) I had to try it on. Needless to say I bought it and having absolutely no regret here, although it shows a bit more cleavage than I’d like too. Anyway, that’s noting unfixable with a bit of effort.
Massimo DuttiMassimo Dutti has pretty good bags, it’s really worth to check them out. One of my favourites was this burgundy one, as I’m never not on the hunt for a good burgundy bag.Another favourite is this little half moon shaped one. And while I liked the burgundy for the fit and colour, this one was made of an even better leather. And it’s minimal, black with gold metals, enough said.
Marks & Spencer
M&S is another example which I don’t visit too often, and this time I wanted to check out the no VPL knicker lines, but had no luck with the sizes or the colour-ways. Why oh why every pack must contain a white one? And who on earth is able to keep it white for a longer period of time, like a month or so?
Moving along. If you’ve always wanted a Bonsai bag lookalike, but for less money, look no further. This one by Autograph is leather and nice, also available in cognac, which I saw online and still counts. Only minor problem that it cannot be closed whatsoever, which keep the content visible and what even worse reachable for everybody who has no business with it. Not that the real deal would be any different, just saying…And last but not least, white booties with pointy toes and kitten heels. Who knew right? This is a wide fit btw so it’s not the best for everyone, but a trendy and affordable (around £60 I think) option for autumn. Maybe I’ll go back for these, or not, they didn’t look so good with my jeans, which put me off, or maybe it’s just because fall isn’t here with full swing just yet. This is a question for another day I guess.
So the result is 2 t-shirts and 2 dresses, which all will be good enough for the next few weeks at least (Budapest here we come), not to mention next summer. Love all the prints I bought, do you?
