When I discovered Uniqlo were doing a collaboration with Orla Kiely, I was super excited . I was also too late to the party and everything was sold out. Thank goodness for eBay in these situations. I'm not usually able to afford Orla unless I find bargains or items on sale, but the Uniqlo pieces were being sold at very affordable prices. Of course, on eBay they'd been hiked up a bit, but for some Orla, in my opinion, still worth it!
I managed to bag myself a scarf/stole for £15 and a dress for £40. They are both in the same pattern (my favourite I think!) and I'm extremely pleased with both. Well worth the money I think. The scarf/stole is excellent quality, nice thick material so it was definitely worth what I paid! As soon as I opened the package containing my scarf, I put it on and it's remained round my neck most days since!
What do you think?
I think it makes any outfit!! The above is from a few weeks back when I held a Stella & Dot event at my husband's workplace. I wanted to look smart. This dress was a total bargain, £15 from Tesco. I think it looks far more expensive than that and the fit is fantastic. This was a very cheap outfit all in all.. but it doesn't look it (well... I think! You tell me!).
Dress - Tesco £15
Cardigan - Room31 £3
Tights - Primark £1
Shoes - Matalan £12
Scarf - eBay £15
Are you lucky enough to own any Orla? Or did you get some from Uniqlo?
