But hey, you guys know me by now.
I err, disappear for a while, and then suddenly WHAM! A mass of posts at once 🙂
This is my favourite silk shirt. I love the colour. It works well casual or formal.
I love random hijabs. This hijab I like because the pattern (close up) looks like ice cream cones.
The trousers were a bargain from Gap. They were in the Christmas sale for 15 pounds. Down from 45 pounds. Bargain, yes? 😛
They were long, so I had to hem them…and I HATE hemming!
But I recently discovered ‘Magic Hemming Tape’, which has now given me the licence to shop in the Sales section..without worrying about looking for Petite sizes!
Previously, I only found petite trousers SOMETIMES in Gap, River Island, Dorothy Perkins and Next. The key word being SOMETIMES. LOL. Usually the best/most fashionable trousers are only available in ‘Long’. Grr.
Most of us are SHORT dammit! Why don’t they provide for us?
Besides, Im not THAT short. (5’1 isn’t thaaat short. Honest!)
My taller friend has a problem in that she is too tall for ‘short’ trousers. And too short for ‘tall’ trousers. She falls somewhere in between. Again, the magic hemming tape came to the rescue.
You basically just iron it on.
And if you hate sewing (like me) or, you’re too busy (like me) …this will be a time saver.
Costs like 2 pounds from Tesco. Look in the sewing section (in the beauty aisles)
Aaaanyway, here’s the outfit.
Again, was rushing out the door to work. So don’t be too harsh 😛 I promise I shall get better at self-taken pics. *Pause* *Insert self-deprecating humour* :p
(Hijab: HnM 10 pounds, TShirt: Zara 12 pounds, Cardigan: HnM 9 pounds, Trousers: Gap 15 pounds, Leopard print flats, not pictured, 15 pounds Claires)
So this is my ‘Bargain Of The Week’
Its a beautiful silk dress from Banana Republic. Originally 98 pounds. I got it for the bargain price of….*drum roll* 13 pounds.
PS: Please ignore the grainy pics. I was walking out the door to go to work.
