You know me, I’ve told you before how much I LOVE clothes. Is there a woman out there who doesn’t? I must admit the past couple of years have seen fewer and fewer purchases and my wardrobe was beginning to look tired, or was I just getting bored with it?
I did lose a bit of weight as you know back in February so when I went to Italy I treated myself to some new jeans and ‘bits and pieces’ from my best friend Enrica’s Benetton shop. I love Benetton. Fact. I could sleep in there and I found it really hard to whittle down my choice from the massive pile of stuff I tried on and liked to what I could afford. It’s a hard job you know.
Anyway, back home in the UK I was contacted by Zalando. Who? I hear you ask.
Zalando are a young and exciting online shoe and fashion store which has been recently launched in the UK after great success in Europe. They have women’s and men’s sections and also offer children’s fashion and accessories plus baby care and cleansing products.
They asked me if I’d like to buy something from their site and try their unique online shopping experience. Naturally I jumped at the opportunity as if you look yourself they have some fantastic designer labels alongside other more purse-friendly brands. My beloved Benetton is there which was an enormous temptation BUT I opted for Desigual, a fairly new brand (to me at least) which uses exciting prints colour and creative ideas to offer clothes a little less normal which is so me.
They gave me a £70 voucher to spend and first I searched for navy blue cardigans and there were a few that tempted me but I have a very clear picture in my mind of what I’m looking for so I thought Spring/Summer = dresses of course and off I went. I was able to select according to price, colour or brand which cut down my search and made it easier, nobody likes to spend hours trawling through pages and pages, well I don’t anyway.
I was taken by the Desigual dress immediately, I can see myself wearing it at Brit Mums Live this year, comfortable, fashionable and very with it. My decision was made and knowing some European labels come up small I went for the large which I’m thankful to say fits! I’ll still have to work on my tummy a bit but I love it.
My package arrived in a matter of days and I am subscribed to their newsletter which, yes is tempting every time it lands in my inbox but take today’s newsletter – they’re offering ideas for wedding outfits and I’m going to a wedding in July in Essex so I’ll have to up my ante a bit for that one, everyone will look gorgeously groomed. I just know I’ll find something stunning on Zalando, have a look and tell me what you think?
Oh gosh and before I forget, there are Zalando’s dotted all over Europe so, if like me, you have family in Europe and never know what to buy them You can buy online and get it delivered FREE! I bought my son a Desigual T shirt on the Italian site for his birthday on Monday and it all arrived in perfect time for his special day.
