Rediscovering the 'Me' in 'Mumeeeeeee'

'I have always thought that there is no more fruitful source of family discontent than a housewife’s badly-cooked dinners and untidy ways'. (Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, 1861)

How lovely

Before I start waxing lyrical about fashion, may I please point out that I am by no stretch of the imagination a Gok Wan or a Trinny & Susannah or in any way fashionable really. Most days I do well to put on a crumpled pair of jeans, a t.shirt which isn't marked with some sort of child-created mess and some footwear. It's not that often I get chance to make it to an actual clothes shop so imagine my delight when the very lovely people at gave me the opportunity to select something from their site up to the value of £50. Oh happy day indeed!

So, I made my way straight over to their site and started browsing. I suddenly realised this wasn't going to be as easy as I thought. What to choose? How to spend my £50 wisely?

I had heard of and seen the ads with Fearne Cotton and Holly Willoughby but had never visited the site before. I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised and found a number of products I liked. There was this gorgeous dress, for example. priced under £50. The clothes seems to be very reasonably priced and there's a great range on the site.

In the end, I went for the lovely funnel neck coat in purple pictured at the top, which I am really pleased with. Lovely fit, good quality, fully lined and at under £50, great value. OK, it might not be camel (which my fashionably astute friend informs me is all the rage for AW10) but camel schmamel I say. Bring on the purple!

I will definitely use again and may even be inspired enough to get myself out of those boring jeans and t.shirts!



  1. That dress and coat look fab, think I might have to go and have a look at the Very site myself...

  2. Oh I LOVE that coat. I need a new winter coat and I love bright colours. Hmmm...

    Thanks for the review!

  3. That coat is gorgeous! And such a good price too.

  4. This is the first fashion statement I have seen that does not mention and aviator jacket, a camel coat or a mad men dress!! Congratulations on being an individual!
