White shirt, PS32.50 Quality: 5/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 3/5 Nice cotton but it creases very easily.
Not keen on the masculine cut Skirt, PS49.50 Quality: 5/5 Fit: 5/5 Price: 3/5 It has a slimming effect and is easy and comfortable to wear Jumper, PS79 Quality: 5/5 Fit: 5/5 Price: 2/5 It's beautifully soft cashmere but for PS79 it would have to be a special treat Jeans, PS19.50 Quality: 3/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 3/5 Loose on the waist but tight on the thighs. Nice stonewashed colour Floral dress, PS35 Quality: 5/5 Fit: 4/5 Price: 4/5 It's a flattering cut with an elegant design White shirt, PS20 Quality: 2/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 3/5 Quite poor quality and a bit see-through Pencil skirt, PS18 Quality: 3/5 Fit: 2/5 Price: 3/5 A nice design but looks a bit shapeless Jumper, PS18 Quality: 3/5 Fit: 2/5 Price: 3/5 A nice sweatshirt, good colour but it's a poor fit Jeans, PS24 Quality: 3/5 Fit: 2/5 Price: 3/5 Not cut particularly well and too long and loose around the ankles Floral dress, PS39 Quality: 4/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 4/5 It fits well on the waist but slightly loose under the arms. Great for a spring/summer occasion Floral dress, PS50 Quality: 4/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 2/5 This doesn't come in enough at the waist to make the most of the peplum and the print is dated Jumper, PS25 Quality: 3/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 2/5 It's tight on the bust but loose everywhere else. You can get better for your money elsewhere Jeans, PS26 Quality: 5/5 Fit: 5/5 Price: 4/5 Great basic jeans, so comfortable and a brilliant style. Could be mistaken for designer White shirt, PS26 Quality: 4/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 3/5 They've added the peplum detail for a modern twist but it still looks quite old-fashioned Skirt, PS22 Quality: 4/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 3/5 It hangs well but is ill-fitting on the waist Floral dress, PS18 Quality: 3/5 Fit: 4/5 Price: 5/5 Like the puff-sleeve detail and flattering V-neck Jumper, PS12 Quality: 2/5 Fit: 3/5 Price:4/5 A great colour but thin and itchy. Not sure about the string-vest look Skinny jeans, PS14 Quality: 4/5 Fit: 4/5 Price: 4/5 They are very tight and it's not easy to bend your knees. But I like the look and love the colour White shirt, PS14 Quality: 2/5 Fit: 2/5 Price: 3/5 It's not a great fit and it doesn't flatter as there's no waist. The pockets don't line up - not sure if this is deliberate Pencil skirt, PS12 Quality: 3/5 Fit: 4/5 Price: 4/5 Very comfortable and an interesting print. Fine for a day in the office Floral dress, PS38 Quality: 4/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 3/5 This has a nice print and is easy to wear Jumper, PS30 Quality: 4/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 2/5 It's tight across the back but loose in the body. There are better alternatives out there Jeans, PS24, Quality: 3/5 Fit: 4/5 Price: 4/5 Not keen on the mottled print but very comfortable to wear White shirt, PS32 Quality: 3/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 2/5 It's not exciting but easy to wear and functional Pencil skirt, PS38 Quality: 4/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 4/5 It creases across thighs and isn't easy to sit down in but a great design Floral dress, PS17 Quality: 4/5 Fit: 5/5 Price: 5/5 Love it. It's a great fit and the print is perfect. Looks more expensive than it is - a summer must-have Jumper, PS10 Quality: 4/5 Fit: 3/5 Price: 5/5 A nice cut but a thin knit, meaning it's see-through and snags easily Jeans, PS13 Quality: 4/5 Fit: 4/5 Price: 5/5 Nice fit, comfortable and we love the star print - can't go wrong for PS13 White shirt, PS10 Quality: 3/5 Fit 4/5 Price: 5/5 Not cotton but it's nicely cut. Love the long sleeves and the pocket detail Pencil skirt, PS7 Quality: 3/5 Fit: 4/5 Price: 5/5 Fits like a glove and very comfortable but the fabric doesn't feel very pleasant and looks like school uniform WHERE TO BUY: WWW.BHS.CO.UK WWW.DEBENHAMS.COM WWW.GEORGE.COM WWW.MARKSANDSPENCER.COM WWW.NEXT.CO.UK WWW.PRIMARK.CO.UK
