A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a £10 voucher from Matalan as part of their #FashionFriday Twitter competition! All I had to do was retweet a message by @Matalan and I was randomly selected as the winner! Hurrah! Thanks Matalan 🙂 I decided to show you a few of the items I’m considering spending my £10 voucher on.
Obviously tartan is a huge look for A/W 13 and I really love the oversized style of this one. The deep V neckline keeps it looking more feminine than Lumberjack, and the dipped hem at the back means you can wear it with leggings or jeans without showing off your bum! Perfect!
I recently bought a new laptop so am after a nice new big bag to carry it around with me! I really like the colour of this tote, and the stud detailing gives it a bit of edge. I like that it has a zip opening too, as living in central London means you’ve got to keep your possessions safe from pickpocketers (and rain!).
Oh my goodness, how cosy does this look?! With the evenings well and truly drawing in, there’s nothing better than coming home from a long day at work and getting into a warm and comfy onesie! And they don’t look more warm and comfy than this fluffy number!
Bargain alert! How good value is £12 for these real leather brogues?! They’re really cute, would go with so many different outfits, and being real leather they’d also hopefully last for a while too.
This dress is really simple and really stylish. As we know, I really like nude clothes and accessories, and love the black contrast trim and cap sleeves of this dress. It would be great for work, and also for going for drinks with the girls, and is great value at £10.
Another tartan item! I really like the grey, navy, moss green and burgundy colours of this shawl, as well as the cute tassel detailing. I’d wear this with jeggings for a cute but cosy Autumnal look.
Ahh so many items to choose from! I think it will be impossible to choose just one from this lot! Watch this space as I’ll definitely let you know what I do go for in the end! And remember to check out @Matalan‘s Twitter feed for the #FashionFriday RT competitions 🙂 Come and say hello to me on Twitter too 🙂 @emsypickle
I live in Brixton in London. I eat out far too much, am always planning my next trip and have a borderline unhealthy obsession with Harry Potter.
