*brand* new find!

I've been at it again! Stealing style from Instagram! The bomber jacket is a big trend this season, I've come across a fair few but when I saw this pic on my feed I set my heart on getting my hands on one of these!

It's from Stradivarius, which is a Spanish brand that I first came across when I went on holiday last year. When I walked into their store it did strike me as being quite similar to New Look, the price points most certainly seem to be on par. They only have one store in the UK so far which is at Westfield Stratford but the website is lovely....I may have just found a few more gorgeous things....

If you are a fan of the ruffle Stradivarius have got this trend covered! I absolutely adore this denim dress!

If you've missed out on the H&M or M&S ruffle shirt....how brilliant is this shirt for £19.99!

Shirt with frill trim, they also do a lovely plain red version here

This frilly shirt is pretty special too!

If you love a good stripe, this shirt might be worth investing for just £15.99

I'm having a bit of a moment with the slogan sweats....debating as to whether to add this one to my growing collection!

And finally, love the pockets and style of this little denim number!

So many lovely things.....so tempting! Any of my picks take your fancy? 

Here I am sporting my bomber. I ordered the medium so it would be a bit oversized. The delivery was free (I think because it was over £50?) and it came within 5 days. I've kept the styling simple to let the jacket do the talking.

  1. Ah yes I know Stradivarius well. There's one in the square in Puerto Banus. Their jeans are actually really good. Love love love the bomber jacket on you michelle xx

    1. I'm kinda glad there isn't one of these local to me Donna....I could see a lot of damage being done in Stradivarius! That said I doubt it will be long before the likes of Stradivarius, Pimkie, Bershka and Blanco are on our High Streets, we do have a Pull & Bear in Bristol. We are so lucky to have so much choice xx

  2. Your outfit with the bomber is just perfect Michelle! And I love those little frilly numbers, I might just have to go and check out the website. Purely for research, of course! xx

  3. I think you've got it spot on the way you've worn the jacket - keeping it simple as the jacket does all the work for you. I have bought from Stradivarius before - last year - and I like to keep an eye on them to see if they have any cute pieces. Now I have to look up Pimkie, Bershka and Blanko! Got to keep up!

    1. Well thank you Sue! I do have a couple more styling ideas for it as you know! ;0) But yes....I think it's best to keep things simple, I don't want to detract from the gorgeous detailing on the jacket. I'm going to be keeping a close eye on Stradivarius.....I didn't think I wanted to go down the frilly blouse road but I am rather smitten with the white shirt with the black edging! I know they stock a bit of Pimkie over on ASOS.....always happy to get a bit of free delivery! :0) xx

  4. Oh that is really gorgeous on you. I've never heard of this brand before, but I'm on a flying visit to Barcelona this week, so will definitely keep my eyes peeled for their store!

    1. Ahh...thank you Helen! Definitely check out Stradivarius if you are in Barcelona! Have a fab trip! xx

  5. Hi my lovely!! Ooh gorgeous jacket I'm seriously tempted to indulge, I love the embroidery!! Hope you're having a lovely weekend too! Xxx
