We Went Shopping in New Look

Sam and I were given a bit of a mission recently, trying to find something which would look supercool with anything in our wardrobes for £15 from New Look. Here's how we did:


Last Friday I went over to the massive New Look shop in Leicester Highcross shopping centre and got searching.

I didn't know what I was looking for and waited until something caught my eye. Now, in the back of my mind I knew I had the hotly anticipated Rock My Wedding event 'Pretty Naughty' party to attend on the Tuesday evening (today). I had just purchased my frock (all will be revealed) and knew the shoes I wanted to wear with it but I hadn't got a clutch bag which would give it the extra oomph it needed.

Now I normally like to carry some super stylish arm candy but when looking for a clutch to go with my new dress I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. Well, I did see this Christopher Kane clutch but at £390 it was a bit out of my price range.
Christopher Kane purple leopard embossed leather clutch, £390

Anyway I think I went through the whole range of clutches at New Look (and believe me there are plenty!) looking for something striking, a total clash to my dress but with a bit of an edge. And I found it. It was jazzy and it was studded. PERFECT!
Pink splatter gold studded envelope clutch, £12.99

Unfortunately my photo does not convey how ace this evening clutch is, but believe me it is going to perk up any outfit I wear. It is the ideal size to fit my phone, purse, lipstick and keys in for Tuesday evening and I can also sling it over my shoulder so I have got both hands free for sipping some delicious cocktails.

Yep, I shall be pairing this clutch with my new dress from Reiss and plain black Louboutins. I do like to mix things up a little. I've not quite decided on the jewellery yet but it will most likely be something understated so not to overdo it with such a vibrant clutch as my main accessory.

I will share with you my whole outfit look soon. Watch this space!

When New Look asked us to review some of their products, I knew exactly what I wanted to go for - their shoes. Teresa has always loved NL's gorgeous range of flat shoes, so I was desperate to get my mitts on them for myself.

As you know, I'm a huge leopard print lover, so when I spied these leopard print slippers, I knew they had to be mine:

Leopard print suedette loafers*

Chic, comfy and oh-so cheap (£15.99!! For that price, you can easily justify two pairs!), I will be rocking these babies with pretty much everything in my A/W wardrobe. Not only will they add a cool new twist to my beloved skinny jeans, but they'll also look fab with my fave dresses too...bargain!

So ladies, if you're in need of a new pair of shoes (and, really, when are we not?), get yourselves down to New Look pronto and snap up a bargain!
