As a blogger I’ve done many a review for many a brand and been sent countless items to trial, but nothing can compare to the joy I feel when I see other bloggers wearing my clothes! Here is Hanna from Hanna Wears showing us exactly how she wears the Darlene dress from Beloved Endeavour. I’m LOVING the monochrome styling and that neck tie. Hanna, you look GREAT! You can read her post here.
With a retro twist by adding a vintage shirt and shoes?
Ship shape nautical with a bright clutch and shoes?
A mixture of the two?
Or classic styling with a plain black bag and black heels? Share your thoughts!
As the song says,
“It may be winter outside, but in my heart it’s spring….”
So say Love Unlimited and so say I. Outside is frosty but the longer days are creeping in and I’m on the lookout for daffodils. Warmer weather is coming and I’m certainly ready with two new dresses at Beloved Endeavour.
Once upon a time sequins along with metallics were only seen in the autumn winter collections but now they have broken their own rules and are set to claim their space in our spring wardrobes. I’ve already worn the dress on the left- albeit with opaques and a cardi but I must say that the sequins jazzed up my winter mood. I wore it in the daytime too. What a rebel I am.
I like this meme….
…… because it pretty much sums up my relationship with H&M. I know it’s a bit repetitive as I’ve said it before on here and on various social media platforms, but the plus section in H&M consistently looks like a regurgitated dogs dinner. Despite this being my thought for over 12 years I keep going in there whenever I visit Intu Merry Hill and each time I see that pathetic looking collection of clothing in the dingy space under the escalators, I give it a quick once over, shake my head and tootle on over to Simply Be. Yep, H&M still aint sh…
Now it’s not that everything in the range is always terrible. Not everything and not always. As the saying goes, even a broken clock is right twice a day- but don’t bother using it to check the time at any other point. You might on the off-chance find something decent amongst the doldrums, but the collection is so unloved that it takes sheer shopping determination/ desperation/ exasperation to bring yourself to look through the shadows of the uninviting rails. There are no show stoppers- or even show starters. In fact there are barely any opening credits to even let you know there’s anything going on that might be worthy of your attention. They had a space to fill under the escalators and they filled it with this. Buy it if you want to but we’re not fussed. I’d really prefer them to just pull the plug on the whole lot and leave a space there. Plonk down a couple of sofas, or a mini bar. Maybe a DJ, a crèche, a portaloo, or at the very least somewhere I can charge my phone. Cancel the entire collection. No one at H&M cares about it so they need to stop pretending they do. In the words of Brand Nubian- Love me, or leave me alone.
I’ve never worn a puffa jacket before but if I was going to start now I’d begin with this one. A clean stylish update of a classic. Winter fashion perfected.
Once upon a time before the Etsy shop, I had a Big Cartel site from which I sold belts and clothing. I still have various items of stock from those days that I need to clear and I have started to list some on Ebay. Like these dresses…
and this one too..
I have several of the dresses in the first photo left in sizes 18- 30 but the check dress is only available in size 18 as it was a sample. I have a few other things that I will list over coming weeks so keep an eye on my Ebay page as you could bag yourself a bargain!
