Cherry Pie : Matalan Haul!

13 March 2011

Matalan Haul!

The lovely lovely people at Matalan recently gave me a £50 voucher to spend in-store on whatever I wanted!! Well, as soon as it came through the post, I was out shopping in a flash.

Although Primark is the cheapest on the highstreet, I much prefer Matalan because their clothing isn't of bad quality and £50 can go quite a long way, unlike other high-street stores where £50 will barely buy you anything.

As I have work experience on Monday, I was looking for a few bits I could wear that will be casual, yet still smart looking. With their Spring/Summer range filtering into stores, there were quite a few pretty pieces, but unfortunately I couldn't find my size in most (such as the Striped Tunic and the Nautical Button Cardigan). Of course, the Nautical theme is back for Spring and Matalan are already carrying some pieces, I picked up a nautical style crop top with a Crochet neckline.



I also wanted a simple black dress to wear with tights. Something that would make a change from trousers! First of all I purchased the Animal Print Burnout Tunic, but when I got it home I realised it had a hole in the armpit and was practically see through in the daylight! Deciding to take it back, I managed to find a simple short sleeved black dress with an empire line that I will definitely feel comfortable in. Excuse the fact that my hair is a complete mess and I'm not wearing any makeup.



The black dress is pretty perfect for wearing with bright coloured tights. Unfortuntely, the only ones I have are from my Student 'neon' nights out which are just too bright for my liking. Instead I wore a pair of burgundy tights over a pair of black ones for warmth. You can see the real colour of the tights better below:



When it comes to Matalan accessories, I'm like a moth to a flame. I love their jewellery and handbags. Their Spring/Summer range of accessories include nautical, floral and crocheted themes. I picked up a the Tapestry Bowling Bag as well as the Multi Charm Skinny Belt and two bracelets.







I also picked up a pair of grey jogging bottoms for Vince which he really loves! Many of the items from the Spring/Summer lookbook were not yet in stock so I'm looking forward to when they are introduced in store, I need to get my hands on the Stripe Sundress! I'm extremely pleased with all the goodies I picked up, thank you Matalan!
