The Fashion Round About

Nolia Dress By Malene Birger from My Wardrobe
Geometric print dress Gharani Strok from My Wardrobe

Flower smock dress by See by Chloé from My Wardrobe

I have had a think and decided that we see the same trends appearing season after season. I suppose with there being so many designers releasing collections season after season there is a limit with what they can come up with in terms of wearable clothes that the average person will wear. I have decided to have a look through my wardrobe and see if any of my clothes can be applied to this seasons trends. I found that almost everything will apply in one way or another so in theory I don't really need to be any thing new this year.

striped tops - back in this year

Tribal prints - back in this year

geometric prints - back in this year

pink and lots of bright colours - back in this year

floral prints - back in this year

skinny jeans - back in this year

Wedge shoes - back in this year

But, That said I didn't buy many new clothes at all last summer, mainly because I was pregnant for most of it so I think I deserve a few new clothes this year. The great thing is if I only really need a few things I can affore to splurge on some really nice things. Also I can be guilt free as I know the trends will probably be back next year so I will get plenty of wear out of them. Even better if the trends for this year are nothing new, then there should be some great stuff in the sales. I decided to revisit some of the online sales to see if there is anything suitable. I take back what I said about being fed up with the sales. I found loads of nice stuff especially at My Wardrobe. Perhaps it is because I am now looking at it through my spring / summer goggles.

Anyway I have found a beautiful floral dress by Malene Birger, reduced from £190 to £57, that will be perfect for floating around in this summer. I was amazed and very excited to find they had it in my size and just had to have it, now I am just waiting for it to turn up and really hoping it fits. I also found some grey skinny J brand jeans reduced from £120 to £65, a See by Chloe Flower smock dress reduced from £200 TO £60 and a Geometric print Gharani Strok dress reduced from £267 to £80.10. I'm really glad that there is a bit of overlap on the fashions each year, if it means I can get great on trend stuff at a fraction of their original price (of course I want to see new stuff aswell though)
