When I was asked recently if I would like to review the latest clothing ranges from Big W, particularly the Peter Morrissey range, I quickly agreed. Hello… I get to buy clothing.. and from one of my favourite designers!
You see I first bought a Peter Morrissey for Big W dress back in October 2010. It was a chiffon type material, black and white dress. Gorgeous and flattering…well apart from the safety pin I had to wear in the middle of the chest area (it was a perfect size 14 but unfortunately, not for those of us with DD/E cup sizes). So a pin to keep my modesty intact it was (see picture below)!
Back to present day and this seasons range by Mr M is just gorgeous. So gorgeous in fact, that when I went to my local Big W there wasn’t much left in stock. I really wanted the ombre maxi dress and the striped skirt in the top picture but apparently they sold out very quickly. However, I did purchase some gorgeous pieces from the range.
First off the rank were the stunning black stilettos ($29), the gather top ($18.96), black blazer ($39. Sold out online. Limited stock in store) and print skirt ($25. Black or red. Sold out online, limited stock in store).
I also bought the striped top ($18.96). Mixing patterns is huge at the moment and the monotone pieces work well together. The skirt and top are very flattering and feel lovely on.
What I love most about the range is you can afford to buy designer pieces for under $50. The quality is fantastic, which you wouldn’t have thought possible with such affordable items but I would dare to say that the clothing would last quite a while after many, many washes.
I was a bit apprehensive about doing the posts for Big W (yes, next week I show you the new Michelle Bridges range, which also coincides with myself starting at the gym!).
If you have been reading my blog for the past nearly 5 years, you will know that I rarely do ‘selfies’ or full photos… this was a huge thing for me to go through with.
I love fashion but I would rather write or talk about it than show myself wearing it. I guess I have just conquered one of my fears… pictures of myself (Only next time, I will wear my hair down)!
To quote Mr M “Fashion is there to enhance your life, not to torture you. Fashion should be embraced.” Yes, Mr M! Yes it is!
