They say the cold is on its way. Getting ready in winter white
During my road trip last week I went from Luxembourg to Antwerp. I love this city and this month it’s sale everywhere! Best of both, quality time with my better half and shopping. Can life get any better? For a long time I lived in a city in the south of Holland and driving to Antwerp was the same distance as driving to Amsterdam. So I would visit the city regularly. By now I know where to go and where to shop but more about this in another post. First shop I drove to -outside of town- was New Look.
Unfortunately all the New Look shops in Holland are closed. In this shop they sell the plus size collection Inspire. I was very disappointed when I arrived as there was only one (!!) clothing rack with plus size garments in the whole shop! When I asked about it they told me “the store is so full so all the Inspire items are still in our stock room”. Excuse me? Then just divide it a little bit and leave stock of all divisions in the back? She agreed but there was nothing she could do. She pointed out the three racks of sale. Yes 3 whole racks, amazing right? Well the regular collection was about 20 racks of sale.. But quality over quantity right? In those view little racks I actually found lots of nice items! And even a few on sale, which normally never works out for me. When going to the fitting rooms I came across their huge shoe-heaven: sale as well! So with 3 bags full of clothes, shoes and accessories I was a very satisfied customer. So what did I shop and what am I wearing?
The pullover is off white and I am wearing a size 24 which is 2 sizes bigger then I normally wear. Not all sizes were available so I just tried it on and it fitted me well. The bonded faux fur waistcoat is also in off white and I am wearing a size 18 because I don’t want this to fit too wide. It will make me look even more chunky. Such a sturdy fabric can always make me look a bit bigger but I don’t (always) mind. The black washed jeans are from MS mode and I bought it last year. It’s also great with blue denim but I didn’t pack these. The brown ankle boots I also shopped in the sale of New Look and I must say, they really fit me well (though it’s not wide fit).
