Since I've been pregnant I find myself constantly telling friends about things I've seen that I would love to buy for myself but that won't accommodate my expanding girth. I thought I'd start sharing some of these with you guys starting with some beautiful bits from Primark. Now that M has started pre school I have treated myself to a few 9am visits, you know when the stock is still actually on the shelves and there aren't any crowds of teenagers around....
Here's what I like...
|Sequin Jacket - £21|
Actually if an occasion crops up I probably will buy this. I love that the sequins are matt so you get the sparkle without it being too shiny. Sure it will probably unravel with 20 minutes of putting it on, but then so will anything this sequinny and I'd rather pay £20 for the pleasure of leaving a little gold trail behind me than £60 from somewhere else.
|Black Lace Dress - £17|
Lace dresses have been in Vogue for a while now but that doesn't stop me loving them. The demure neckline and longsleeves balance the flirty length and short skirt perfectly. This one is unusual in that the lace is very thick, almost crochet like so it won't snag. A perfect LBD. I'd wear with opaques and flats.
|Pleather Panel Skirt - £12|
Ok so obviously it would be better if it was real leather, but I really like this. The colour is perfect and the jersey panels add a modern twist as well as much needed maneuverability. Would be great with a simple crew neck jumper and some ankle boots.
|Brocade Trousers - £16|
I've lusted after these brocade trousers for ages. They were really hard to photograph without looking naff, trust me they are a lot more beautiful in real life. I'd let them speak for themselves with black crew neck and pumps.
|Polka Dot Skirt - £10|
Funny, I hardly ever wear skirts, now that waistbands are no longer my friend I've found loads that I like. This has a chiffon (cough polyester) overlay and the dots are velvet. Beautiful mixture of textures.
|A Line Pleather Skirt - £12|
More pleather, how sweet is this? The shape takes away the association I have with black leather skirts and Liz from Eastenders, just don't pair it with knee high boots.
