High Street Hits

Written by Helen Hackwell on Saturday, 23 October 2010.

Since the weather was truly abysmal today, I made the decision not to venture out of the house and decided instead to replace my regular browse round the high street shops with a browse round the web.

There were two items on my hit list; firstly I wanted to get a great piece of knitwear (either a jumper or cardy) to wear with my skinny jeans. Something comfy, but stylish enough to wear outside of the house – a category in which most of my current jumpers sadly don’t belong. Second on my list was a statement bib necklace. I love the new pieces from Mimbo and I can see several potential Christmas present requests from their new collection. But for today I’m sticking with high street stores and, more importantly, high street prices!

It didn’t take me long to stumble across my jumper, a quick browse of warehouse.co.uk yielded results very quickly. This striped fluffy jumper will look great with both black and grey skinnies, I can’t wait to start wearing it as soon as it arrives.

Finding a bib necklace that I liked took me a bit longer, but I eventually stumbled across this one by ‘STAR by Julien MacDonald’ at Debenhams. In order to wear this during the day without looking too dressed up I also bought a loose vest top from Warehouse as well as my jumper. In fact I actually bought two vest tops as I couldn’t decide whether it would look better with black or white... but I will return one (in all probability)... and I did get 25% off courtesy of Grazia... so it’s completely reasonable... I’ve decided...

After such a gruelling afternoon of internet shopping I’ve decided I deserve a nice big glass of wine (or two... or three...) whilst watching the X Factor. Me thinks a headache might be on the cards tomorrow morning. Ahhh well, it’s not a proper Sunday morning without a headache!
