I really wanted to find a different backdrop for my pictures, gone are the days of taking them in my back garden. For one my garden is now more of a yard and others houses overlook it, not sure I want them seeing me posing in the garden. Secondly I’ve been looking at other blogs outfit posts and being a little bit jealous, as they look so good. I knew I had to go out and about to take more interesting outfit shots and to be more inspired.
So the last time I was in Leeds I took my camera along and my best friend kindly took some shots for me. This bridge goes over the River Aire and people have started to put padlocks on it a la Paris! I felt a million miles away from Paris but Leeds is my home town and I love it all the same.
The lovely people at Superdry were kind enough to get in touch with me about reviewing some of their products. Now I must admit Superdry isn’t a place I’ve bought anything from before. I guess I associate them with fairly blatant branding and more casual clothes. The only time you’ll see me in trackies is when I’m painting my house. When I looked at their website however I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did they have some really pretty pieces but they had things I wanted to own. For the purposes of this review I decided to split my review into a day and night look.
This playsuitis perfect for a casual daytime look, although I think it could be equally dressed up for the evening. It has lovely polka dot detailing all over and Broderie Anglais on the hem – I think this adds a little more interest to the piece. It has an exposed zip up the back which I thought was a great feature. The best thing for me though is that it has pockets, don’t you just love something more when it comes with pockets? I got this in a size small and I’m a size 10/12 depending on where I shop, I usually have to go for a medium elsewhere so I was pleasantly surprised. I teamed it up with my leather jacket and leopard print slip-ons and I was ready for my day of shopping.
Have you bought something from a brand that surprised you?
