Oh no she didn't! (A post about UNIQLO.)


Uh oh, I've done it! I've become one of those bloggers who post pictures of their outfits. Obviously, I'm not in the same league (shout out to What Katie Wore and Love Maegan). Although I will say that this picture was taken after a tube journey that contained a nervous breakdown (yes, that was me shouting, 'Morons!' getting off the Northern Line this morning), a long hard day at the coalface, and a drizzly cycle ride home. Bearing all that in mind, I am actually totally rating myself.

But anyway, I just wanted to shout about this dress. Old news, but I am loving UNIQLO at the moment. This dress is £25, 100% merino wool, comes in awesome colours and is very flattering. (Not judging by that picture, you may be thinking. But I am curvier than a stout little teapot, so this is flattering in my world!) I've ordered another one in black. And yes, they are my Clarks Wallabee abominations. And no, I don't care if they make my legs look short. My legs are short.

  1. It looks fabulous and what excellent value - it would look good as a tunic too or layered. Never heard of the company before. Boots look good too - I like their Original range. (and you don't look stout at all!!)

  6. Thanks ladies! And Sid. (I think.)

    I got some of those heat-tech things too Liz, but got the wrong ones so I have to take them back. (Tight polo neck shape. I don't think so.)

  7. You look wonderful - wish I could wear something like that. I am a great fan of Uniqlo, and my girls have loads of stuff from there too. Their bargains are fantastic - once bought £65 of knitwear for £15! It all looks like you've just put it on, not returned frazzled from a day at work and commuting home.
