A Lovely Little Bargain
I popped into Matalan a few days ago and picked up a few bits. I’ve always been a bit of a Matalan fan, particularly when I feel like something new but don’t want to go mad and bash the credit card too hard. And also, because it isn’t on the high street, you are less likely to bump into someone else wearing it than, say, Primark for example. The quality is miles ahead too.
So I thought I’d show you this cute little vest I snagged for just £12.

Now I love grey and so I’m chuffed that there’s so much of it around at the moment. But I have always been very, very weary of tie dye. It has always called up images of hippies and holy jumpers (as in jumpers with holes) and peace loving people with flowers in their hair. This look is so not me. I should point out that I, too, am peace loving, but it’s just not a look I have ever felt comfortable with.
Anyway, back to the subject in hand. Surprisingly, I really like the tie dye effect of this vest. The fabric looks and feels very soft, and the whites, blacks and greys blend luxuriously together.

I do like their footwear.
I think this little top is really good value for money, which is what I am all about. It’s comfy and versatile, would look great with jeans and I can see it tucked into a chic pencil skirt too. Lovely!
So what do you think to my lovely little bargain? Have you tried Matalan?
