Since when did supermarket clothing become cool?!

We were pleasantly surprised this afternoon when George's current seasons trend landed in our inbox! Since when did supermarket clothing look this good?

We are all for quality, good ethics, investing in items that will last and spending money wisely, but when supermarkets produce great designs and market their products in a way that competes with higher quality brands of course we want to take a look. 

But before your spend, consider your options carefully:
So, because the price points are competitive, low and convenient rather than splurge on more items than your wardrobe space allows before you spend your well earned cash, treat the item as you would if it cost 5 times as much: Justify the purchase, consider how you'll wear it, what it will work with in your existing wardrobe and make sure you really are getting your moneys worth. Look at the care label, consider the texture and quality of the item so you know that you are still buying clothes you love and getting your money's worth. 

You don't always need to buy the whole outfit (unless your having a complete wardrobe detox!) and don't be tempted with 'less cost = more items'! Consider saving the pennies and spending pounds on higher quality where it's needed. 

In the meantime, just a little peek at that lovely Spring blue jacket isn't going to hurt...

Quedam #StyleMe Fashion Makeover Competition Results!

Wednesday 22nd October may have been an ordinary shopping day for most, but was an eventful day at Quedam Shopping Centre since they had the pleasure of Yeovil Town football players ready to accompany the winner of Quedams recent fashion make-over competition #StyleMe. 

The lucky lady; Rebecca Hobson couldn’t believe her luck when she was selected as the winner to this very special day “I’ve never won anything before. I absolutely adore fashion, but have no idea what I’m doing! My husband gets so frustrated with me and my wardrobe, this is exactly what I need!” The 40 year old mother of two, tells us how time is precious, she needs a wardrobe to work for her so she can stop spending money on pointless purchases and focus on her career and family. “I’ve always known a personal stylist would help my addiction to shopping and save me money, but didn’t have the confidence to approach one, I can’t tell you how thrilled I am” 

Rebecca’s stylist for the day Emmeline Stevens from The image Consulting Company says “Becs has been a dream to work with, she had the tools there she just needed to know how to use them, I can see that this opportunity at the turn of the season is the break she needs from the stress of her wardrobe, I’m so pleased that not only did we find a great Autumn outfit, she’s gone away with a plethora of advice to work with going forward, thus saving her money in the long run by shopping wisely” 

Alongside Emmeline, stylist Brigitte Ward came on board to look after the Yeovil Town Football Players: Kieffer Moore & Sarah Wiltshire. Both players couldn’t have been more different - a confident Kieffer at a staggering 6’6” with petite porcelain prettiness Sarah at his side. Both players not only had the luxury of a fashion stylist but walked away with an Autumn outfit of their choice. 

Both Emmeline and Brigitte commented on how inspirational and versatile the Autumn fashion is at Quedam this season “River Island have got too many items both Becs and I got carried away with, from sheepskin style coats to the most comfortable wedge boots and leather look skirt. New Look took us by surprise too with some great Autumn pastels at amazing prices that made the budget stretch miles!” Emmeline says. Whilst Brigitte favoured TopShop “We all fell in love with a moss green faux fur gilet, Topshops cutting edge styling really added the finishing touch to the outfits we tried. We couldn’t have had more choice and versatility for every age at Quedam, one day just isn’t enough!” 

Emmeline, Brigitte and the team would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in this successful day and the very helpful staff in each store, particularly Starbucks for being the location of the final shoot with such patience at the end of a long day!

Follow the journey on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter and watch out for more of these opportunities in the future. In the meantime, here's a snippet of the day...
