Too Old?

[Partnered Post].

You'd think I'd be far too old to shop at New Look, but one of my sisters does and on hearing they did half sizes in their really snazzy shoes, I considered age irrelevant and rushed there.  My little feet are wide and are  generally too big for a three, but too small for a four.  Half sizes are hard to come by these days, let alone in a wide fitting.

On my way through the store to excitedly explore the possibility of finding some black shoes that actually might fit me, I was met with the surprise that some of their stuff was actually quite sophisticated! Call me a snob, but I really thought I'd breeze through, straight to the shoe department without a second glance at what else was on offer, but how wrong I was.

So on receiving an invitation to create a Wish List from their web site and with a couple of conferences in mind, I knew I'd enjoy it.  Here's what I picked out:





We'll forget the denim 'Boyfriend shorts' and such look, shall we?

  3. Agree, fabulous ending! I like your choices, more what I'd expect from LK Bennett than New Look - nice dresses. Am suddenly hankering after that black lacy undergarment - even though I'm far too tired for any of erm..that!

    Happy Birthday *offers cake* xx

    1. Thank you. I suspect that underwear looks much better there than it would on me and you've just had a baby, so steady on Tiger! ;)

  4. Loving your work here Anya. I used to be a bit reluctant to shop in New Look, however, over the last few years they've really picked their game up and IMO they're up there with lots of other High Street stores. I regularly buy from their jewellery range which is cheaper but just as fashion focussed as other stores. I must say I didn't know about the half size shoes - interesting. I love the dresses you've chosen which are all very shape enhancing. Well done you. You shall be the belle of the conferences! Michelle x
    ps: I've got some studded shoes from New Look - like the ones you chose. My husband branded them as ridiculous and claimed that I'd never be able to walk in them. I made him eat his words I wore them to a party all night long, even managed to dance with the Rod Steward tribute without stumbling! Rock 'n Roll!!

    1. Thank you Michele. I value your opinion. Good for you managing in those shoes - am not sure I could tbh! xx

  5. Some great items there! I like most of your choices but would have loved to see the "Boyfriends shorts" too... ;o)
    Just bought myself a short denim skirt that will be perfect for the upcoming Bon Jovi concert Sexy Hubby and I are going to. So no, definitely not too old! ;o)
    Fab ending to the post. xx

    1. Well you'd probably look good in the denim shorts / skirt. I most definitely could not carry them off, so good for you - re the skirt and having a sexy hubby ;) xx

  6. Some of the new look stuff is great - I often buy their shoes - especially for weddings - and who cares if you can't walk in them! Some of their clothes are great as work clothes too - and yes, I too just walk by some of the stuff as I know I am not 15 anymore. You have to draw the line somewhere.
