‘Fashion is always of the time in which you live. It is not something standing alone. But the grand problem, the most important problem, is to rejuvenate women. To make women look young. Then their outlook changes. They feel more joyous’ – Coco Chanel
I think there must be something about French fashion that draws me in like a magpie. Everyone already knows my obsession with French clothing company Rad. One of my other clothing staples is La Redoute and I’ve had an account with them since I was 16.
I haven’t ordered from them in a few months, mainly because I’ve always had something to save for; a wedding, a honeymoon, a holiday etc and my spending footprint has been solely on eBay or in Primark but i was flicking through their latest catalogue and along with the 20% discount code they’d sent me, i couldn’t help myself from order the following:
Slash neck t-shirt with bows at the back (blue) – Colour isn’t quite how it looks online, it’s not quite as electric blue in real life but being blonde it’s still a colour that suits me and teaming it up with a white cotton scarf kept me more cosy in my cold office at work!
Slash neck t-shirt with bow at the back (green) This colour was much more true to life (I love a darker green in Autumn/Winter) and the darker colour makes it a little smarter than the blue. They’re both slinky material so cant wait to dress them up with a pencil skirt and statement jellewery like the necklace above.
Cropped Devoré Knit T-Shirt with Faux Leather Panel – not actually sure what that model is wearing underneath this top as it’s REALLY see-through, but I think it looks good with either black or white vest underneath and zooshed it up with some Clinque Red-Y to Wear High Impact lippy!
As well as the mini haul from La Redoute I was also lucky enough to get a £30 credit from Rad.co because of the referrals that have come from my previous blog posts so I treated myself to these beauts:
Raised on Champagne by Outfit of Love (£12.95 reduced from £37)
Hatsuhana Chases Waterfalls by Fly Art (£16.95 reduced from £29.99)
I Have Issues by Acid Clothing (13.95 reduced from£19.90)
Special mention goes to the £7 Red Blazer from the Primark sale pictured above with the ‘Raised on Champagne’ T-Shirt
