Morrisons joining the womenswear market

Morrisons have just launched their womenswear line, which has clearly come as a result of the success of their Nutmeg children’s range. The collection will include: denim, outerwear and activewear, amongst others.

Since Nutmeg was launched in 2013 (I remember them bringing it into the store I worked in), Morrisons has now become the 20th largest retailer based on volume, as it received 3.1million transactions between January 2015 – 2016. (Drapers, Online)

While M&S are struggling to please the market and moving more into food, Morrisons seem to have understood customer requirements and expanding in the opposite direction to M&S. With supermarkets becoming big names in retail, especially childrenswear, Morrisons is definitely one to watch with their new range.

Online, it shows tops around £10 but as low as £4, with jeans and dresses at £20.

I hope it is in a store near me so I can go and see what they have to offer and feel the quality.

Leopard Print and Fishnets

If you haven’t seen the fishnet trend then I’d question if you have been hiding in a cave – I am pretty sure even my Mum would have seen it. This weekend, I decide to couple fishnet socks with my new leopard print boots from New Look which I LOVE.

I actually got the boots in the sale as well, which obviously makes me love them even more!

This weeks, must haves

I always tell myself that I absolutely cannot buy any more clothes for a while and then I somehow end up at a till or checking out of my basket online. So this week, the two things I bought that I absolutely could not say no to were:

  1. Daisy Street Patent Chelsea Boot

As a girl who always lives in trainers, I didn’t want to much of a heel and these seems the perfect size for casual day were or evening cocktails and who could say no to that?

Daisy Bank boots – how cute is the box as well?

2. Embroidered Jumper from New Look

I have been looking for the perfect piece of embroidered knitwear for a couple of weeks and I wanted obvious but subtle, if that makes any sense. This jumper is so cosy and soft, which for me if a definitely necessity in knitwear!

Manchester Art Gallery:Fashion & Freedom

During a visit to Manchester Art Gallery to see the Vogue 100 exhibition, I stumbled across another fashion exhibition: Fashion & Freedom, 1914 – Now, WW1 Centenary Art Commission. The exhibition covered: restriction/release; extreme fashion changes and aspiring and creating.

As a fashion student that is predominately business focussed, it was nice to see how upcoming designers had taken styles/key themes from an era and developed them into amazing designs that I believe fit into the trends of today.

 

Designers include: Holly Fulton, Roksanda, J JS Lee, Vivienne Westwood, Emilia Wickstead and Sadie Williams.

The exhibition is on until the 27th November so I would definitely go and check it out..

Missguided Jumpsuit 

I have an huge love/hate relationship with Misguided but this jumpsuit was definitely a LOVE. As a fashion student, I do my best to make the most of any fashion discounts and Missguided have been exceptional generous recently so I thought I’d give them another go. In the past, I have found that the garments do not necessarily fit or feel as they should, which is a common result of fast fashion, but this jumpsuit made me feel a very confident. I recently a lot of compliments about it and not just from drunken bathroom chat…

Missguided have just launched a new collection called ‘Caroline Receveur x Misguided’ which I will definitely be checking out after this success!
