The summer sales are well underway, and whatever this means about the state of the economy and the high street, for me it is at least a great opportunity for a wardrobe update.
Online fashion store Fashion Union is one I’ve browsed before, but never actually made a purchase from. I don’t know about you, but trying a new online store can be a bit of a minefield as you can’t be sure of the quality or fit, and if they don’t offer free shipping and I can sometimes end up shopping somewhere I know better. However, the Fashion Union sale just looked too amazing! There were so many great items and fab discounts that I took the plunge, and I’m glad I did too as I’ve now received the items and they’re all as lovely up close as I’d been hoping for!
I wanted a stripey top as a classic wardrobe staple, and this one was reduced to £3. £3!!!! That’s less than my lunch usually costs, and kind of irresistible. It’s a nice quality and fit too! I’ve got a few outfits planned for it, including pairing it with boyfriend jeans and my bright apricot blazer, and this one where I’ve put it with a casual muted floral skirt and cute novelty bag. By the way, how adorable is this bag?!! I got it free in a Matalan goody bag, but it’s actually only £8 from the store. I also added my new pocket watch pendant which my friend got me for my birthday. Pretty!
Following my floral shirt dilemma I ended up choosing this one from Fashion Union, and the quality of it is lovely. It was £15, and will look great with jeans and maybe some nice chain neckwear.
My final purchase was this white Vila top. I was looking for a dressy t-shirt to pair with coloured jeans and pencil skirts, and at £20 it was more of an investment that the other two items, but the quality is great again and the silver sleeves make it a bit unusual.
Has anyone else had any good summer sale adventures?
