So my order from tesco emerged at last, and I thought I'd try a few bits on so I could review them for others. It was a bit of a mixed bag really, fit wise, and quality wise - I was impressed with some bits but then some ended up straight in the return pile.
This was the spot print playsuit, which with a 25% off code, cost me £6.00. This was definitely a small fitting 22 and very tight with little room for boobs (I'm only a B cup and barely fit into the cups!. For fear of unsightly camel toe action, I decided this one was heading back. I think tailored rompers may well not be for me given my gangly-ness.
Wolf jumper, £6.00 with 25% discount code. This is supposed to be a dress?! I'm debating this one, as I had hopes for it as a casual winter jumper dress. Whilst it still could work over leggings and boots with a nice blazer, it's definitely not a dress...
Gathered jumper, £3.75, and silk skirt £9.37 with discount. Both hits I think - the jumpers are comfortable and practical, and the skirt is a great piece for colour clashing. Plus, pockets!
Floral shift dress, £5.25. This is a definite keeper, and a definite contender for first day outfit with this short sleeved jacket I scored in a dorothy perkins sale a while back for £7.
Orange linen peplum dress, £6. This is fantastic! Really tailored and fits me like a glove. I am just pondering how to dress it up before I decide definitely (suggestions?).
Dogtooth jersey pencil skirt, £5.62. This is exactly what I was hoping for when I ordered - stretchy, comfortable and still professional looking. The perfect skirt to chuck on during a dark winter morning when I'm not yet ready to surface.
Winter coat, £16.50! I feel this was definitely the most bargainous item - it's comfortable with good room for bulky jumpers beneath. Whilst I reckon the buttons will need resewing on to make them more sturdy, it's definitely worth at least what I paid, and I reckon will stop the excessive spending a winter coat normally requires.
I didn't photograph two items for sheer decency reasons! The velvet body and the lace body - both of which were too short for my frame. It's sad times because I've been on the hunt for both for a good while. However, they were both generously stretchy so worth considering if you're a shorter size 22/24-ish.
