Adventures in FattylandPosted: June 19, 2009
Had a quick trying on session in Evans (Fattyland) yesterday evening. I was in store for what seemed like hours and all I bought was some underwear. It was extremely busy with all the staff scuttling around preparing for the sale which I think starts today.
Love it!!! I’m wearing the size 26- fits fine. Couldn’t buy it at the time but I’m def going back for it.
Size 28- a little too big.
I saw this on the website and immediately loved the print. I had dreams of wearing it with the pale bleach wash jeans from Evans but they are no longer on the website and I can’t see them in store anymore. DRAT. The obvious choice would be to style a satin top with something smart for an evening out but I wanted to dress it down a lot and make it look more rugged- like this:
Now that I’ve tried it on its a bit longer than I thought it was and also more off the shoulder-y than it looked online so won’t work as well with my styling plan.
What does work for me though is the bag. SWOON! I’ve been eyeing it up in Selfridges so much for the past few weeks that I’m sure the security team are monitoring me. Its also available in in a black/ grey colourway but what I’m really lusting over and getting all excited about is the red/purple colourway. It MUST be mine. I need a new work bag and this has to be it! The only thing making me a bit hesitant about buying it is the fact that its lined with black fabric. I never buy black work bags because a) I think they’re boring b)I can never locate things inside it easily. When you have a big black bag and are trying to find something at the bottom its like looking into the abyss and it just frustrates me further when I’m searching for something that I just can’t find. Also, there are no compartments in it apart from a small zippered section which is big enough to contain a tight selection of things but the main section is just one big vortex. My phone has a black case and if that goes inside it I’d never see it again. Even though I am put off by the black lining the superfab exterior makes up for it so I may just have to get it. Also, its gone down in the sale now so that’s the extra incentive I need.
