A Little New Look Haul

Tuesday, 29 September 2015

New Look had a 60% sale on so obviously I had to have a look, or at least that's what I told myself...


I only got 4 items but I love them all and they only cost £20!

Item 1: 


I don't know if I've mentioned this before but I love varsity sweatshirts!! I went to Yale in year 8 and didn't get one and I've regretted it ever since, so now I want all the college style sweatshirts. I'm actually excited to go to uni and get one, ahah is that sad? Probably. 

Anyway this was just from the mens section in New Look, it wasn't very expensive so I thought I'd pick it up. I love the style of them because they add that sports luxe vibe to an outfit and create a more edgy look. It's really soft and a little oversized, which I love because it's perfect for those days when you just want to be cosy. It's this dark green colour with a contrasting, orange basketball logo on. I wasn't sure on the colours because it's not something I'd usually go for but I actually really like it. It's statement but not neon and it just looks really authentic. This piece will get better the more I wear it because it will soon get that faded, vintage look. I just can't wait to style it up!!

Item 2:



Item 2 is this lovely, double layered shirt. It's a really simple piece but I love it. It's a warm, cream colour in real life, which I love because it doesn't wash me out like a very harsh white would. The sleeves are slightly gathered and it creates a nice draping effect for the rest of the shirt. It just falls to around my bum area, which is fab because I can get away with wearing leggings!! At the bottom there's a double layering effect and this hides anything you wear underneath it. 
I don't usually go for a V neck but I thought I need to branch out and update my wardrobe a bit. I'm, hopefully, going to uni next year and I dont want to look like a 12 year old still, so slightly more older pieces like this will really help. It's not a really low V neck so it's a great piece for those who are lacking in the chest department, like me and it flows so nicely so it doesn't stick out from your chest and make you look like a tent. Does anyone else get that or is it just me?
 I think this is perfect because you can dress it down and college with jeans, cardigan and a scarf but dress it up for a night out/interview with some cigarette trousers and heals. 

Item 3:



I never realised how hard it was to show shorts until now! Hopefully you can get the idea..

Item 3 was a bit of a strange one for me because I'm not one for the 70s trend, I'm much more of a 60s or 90s fan but I thought I'd give it a go since these Suedette shorts were only £7!! I think everyone will know by now that I love a bargain, so I had to just get them to try and, to my surprise, they are actually really nice. They are a slightly longer short, which is great because it means that they dont make my torso look really small and you don't have your bum cheeks making an appearance, I just couldn't pull that look off ahah! 
The shorts come up slightly highwaisted and have seems around the pockets that make the appearance of a slimmer waistline, which is always nice. Other than that there isn't much detail on them, they are just plain and simple. The main focus of the short is this suede look and I think it does look quite real. They are quite thin so they dont have the thickness but the colour and texture fits quite well. 

As I said I'm not the biggest 70s fan and I don't usually buy 'trend' pieces but I actually really like these. I think they are really fun and will just go so well with a lot of things, now that we are heading  into autumn and the burgundy and tartan colours. I think with a white shirt or black pieces the shorts can be the focus of the look but if you wanted to go for that 70s vibe, that I wish I could pull off, just through on a jazzy shirt or some cool patterns and you've got it. I might actually try a 70's look, just to push myself and go out of my comfort zone. 

Item 4:


So to get free click and collect I needed to spend and extra £2  and I didn't want any more clothes so I just picked up a pack of rings. I don't really buy rings, the only one I have is a beautiful, lotus one that Lukke got me but I dont like to wear it often in case I lose it. I thought I'd just pick this pack up because they looked dainty and gem based, which I love. 

I'm not a fan of some of the star and moon ones because they have that cartoon look to them but I love the mixed purple gems and the bigger, silver one. I think I will get wear out of them and they'll add something new to looks that I'm not completely comfortable with. 

As you can see it's just a little haul but it's the first time I've ordered things and loved them all, it's kind of a running joke for me to order in bulk and send everything back, so go New Look!! I haven't actually shopped in New Look for a while but I'm loving it recently and you'll probably see me going back for more after this. 
Hope you enjoyed this.
