Hello and welcome to a new week, I hope you all had a lovely weekend! This year I have really been getting into my fashion and I’ve bought more items of clothing than I normally would. I really do believe it is true what they say, confidence comes with age and I’ve learnt about my own personal style and I’ve become a lot more comfortable with myself and what I’m wearing. When you’re wearing clothes that fit you well and make you feel good, it’s a huge confidence booster! Recently I made my very first ASOS order and another Dannii For Target order (my third since March) and of course I wanted to share my purchases with you!
1. ASOS Petite High Neck Empire Dress – $26.07
This dress is unlike anything I own and this time last year I had approximately two dresses in my wardrobe so that’s how far I’ve come. I am loving high neck pieces at the moment and the red is bright and vibrant. Red is not a colour I wear a lot but I loved this dress when I saw it. The dress is made by ASOS’ own brand and is a petite fit. The length is not too long or too short and this will be nice when the weather warms up. One thing I would advise with this dress is to think about what you’re wearing underneath, if you’re wearing a lace bra, it will show the outline.
2. New Look Jersey Tie Waist Playsuit – $24.80
I have always loved the look of playsuits and I’ve always thought they looked so cute on. I couldn’t quite believe it when I saw this playsuit and at that price. A lot of others I’ve seen have been skimpy and fitted but this one is looser and slightly floaty. The material is nice and light but not see through and the bottom half of the playsuit isn’t short and covers most of my thighs. I’m self conscious of my legs and it’s not often I get them out. The playsuit has pockets, adjustable straps and the waist is elasticated which gives it that floaty look. This will look cute on it’s own or with a t-shirt underneath.
Dannii For Target
1. Coated Leggings – Animal – $21.10
Leggings are one of my favourite things in the world and these are a bit more stylish than your average pair. These leggings have a coated sheen to them and an animal print effect. The elastic waist adds to the comfort and when I tried these on it didn’t feel like I was wearing anything they are that comfortable! I was a little worried these would be leather-like and skin tight and difficult to get on and off but they’re not. The material itself is coated so it is still soft and has a bit of stretch. These are definitely coming with me to Auckland next week!
2. Long Sleeve T-Shirt – Black/White – $15.90
Another thing I am loving lately is stripes! Stripes are a simple way to incorporate colour and pattern into an outfit. The material of this top feels thicker than a t-shirt which makes it the perfect layering companion. The top could be worn on it’s own in the transitional months and underneath tops and jackets in winter. The round neck of this top is actually really pleasant, it’s not too low cut and it sits nicely against the neck and chest.
3. 7/8 Ripped Jeans – Grey – $21.10
I already own a pair of these in Indigo which I adore and for that price how could I resist this pair? The main reason for buying these is incase my grey jeggings rip or something happens to them. It’s hard to find a nice pair of grey pants and I know the fit of these jeans is perfect. The distressed knees give them a point of difference from my jeggings and surprisingly, they don’t make you any colder. They also make the jeans look more high end. A feature I love about all of Dannii’s pieces are the little embellishments. These jeans feature a matte black button with DM etched into it, say Dannii Minogue on the inside waistband and feature a black label sewn onto the back of the jeans.
I am really pleased with everything I purchased and I didn’t end up spending a lot of money at all. What do you think of these pieces? Which is your favourite?
