I’ve seen the UNIQLO shop and I like their window displays and products they have on offer but I’ve never entered, always in a hurry to get somewhere so when I was asked to take the UNIQLO challenge and spend £100 on the entire family I thought why not?
How far can you stretch £100?
Well I was very pleased to see each range so reasonably priced, I started with the kids range as the girls have shot up over the summer so most of last winter’s clothes are going to be too short in the arm, length or leg.
I love the bright autumnal colours that run through the range and finally settled for 2 pairs of dark blue easy trousers as they are a classic, easy to wash and iron and go with just about everything they own. I bought the small size and am happy to report they fit, I notice there is an adjustable waist too and we’ve turned up the bottoms. RRP £9.90
I added two flannel check long sleeve tops, one in a bright red and the other yellow, the girls like that they are soft, I like that as it gets colder a t shirt underneath should be suffice to keep them warm. I ordered size 5-6 and they come up quite big, we’ve turned up the wrist and let the shirt hang over the jeans RRP £9.90
I finished off the kids shopping with my favourite item of all a faux shearing long sleeved hoodie, one orange and one red. They are zip up and lovely and warm. They are gorgeous bright colours and perfect for outdoors play as easily washed in the machine. RRP £12.90
I then took a look at the men’s collection and although it is very nice you won’t catch my husband in skinny jeans and tight tops, he likes loose and cool as in ‘doesn’t make me hot’ so as he’s not in great need of much he got two new t shirts, in jewel colours. One thing I will mention is the colours were different to how I had imagined them RRP £4.90
Then it was my turn and as you can imagine it took some time. I was very impressed with the selection available and even more so with the prices, some great threads on there for next to nothing. I opted for a printed skirt RRP £14.90 that I’d like to wear over tights with ballerinas or with boots as the autumn approaches and I teamed it up with a yellow long sleeved t shirt RRP £12.90
I need to find someone to take a photo of me wearing my rags!
