Cherry Pie : A treat from Very

13 October 2011

A treat from Very

When the lovely people from Very contacted me and asked if I'd like to pick an item of clothing to review, I jumped at the chance! I browsed the Online catalogue for ages and ages and couldn't decide. Did I want something new, that I wouldn't usually try or did I want something that I know I'd be comfortable in and wear regularly. I decided that I didn't want to choose something just for the sake of having it, so I decided to choose something I needed; and while I didn't choose something spectacular, I chose something that is distinctly lacking from my wardrobe...shorts.

I've been going on and on about having a pair of shorts for the winter, that I could wear with some lovely thick tights and my new ankle boots from Internacionale, and when I spotted the Love Label Petite Denim High Waisted Shorts worth £25, I knew they would be mine!

I actually really love Very. I know you can get into a lot of debt if you use their pay later service, like my mum does, but they're clothes are really great. I'm currently wearing a pair of black skinny jeans and they fit like a charm! Usually I'm really fussy with jeans and have been wearing Topshop's Ultra Skinny ones for a long time but they're too expensive and wear out really easily, finally splitting in the same place on both pairs I had. I decided that enough was enough and my mum ordered me a pair from Very which are perfect, and half the price! But anyway...back to the point...

I love Very's celebrity collections from the likes of Diana Vickers, Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton, but their Love Label range consists of some great quality, every day clothing.

As I mentioned, I chose the Love Label Petite Denim High Waisted Shorts and I'm so so glad that I did! I was a bit wary of sizing, but opted for a 10 and they fit perfectly! I love high waisted shorts and jeans as they make your legs look longer and just give a bit of interest to something that is otherwise a bit common. The shorts are so cute and I love the addition of the turned up hem as well as additional detailing on the buttons and labels.

The shorts are really comfortable and are a little stretchy, so great for when you have a big lunch! You can pair them with pretty much anything, but I went for my new Polka dot sheer blouse from Tesco, which I think works well?

Despite the gormless look, I have finally got around to posting some outfit photos! Outfit photos are always very rare on this blog as my camera isn't great (as you can tell) and the only place I can take them is if I stand on my bed, infront of the window for all of the neighbours to see! Anyway, I absolutely love the shorts and want to thank the lovely girls at Very for letting me pick them!

  1. I love these shorts - great choice! I bought some similar high-waisted black ones from Topshop recently (£30, which seemed like a lot, but I wear them all the time). The shape is so flattering and, as you've shown, they look good with a blouse.
