Last week I was approached by online fashion website lotd.com to see if I wanted to try some of their clothes. It’s so rare I buy myself a bunch of clothes now as a busy mum with different financial priorities compared to my younger years, so I thought why not? That will be nice. A lovely treat for myself!
In my early twenties I wouldn’t have thought twice about blowing my wages on clothes on a weekly basis! Now I’ve been living in one of my favourite jumpers for around ten years as it’s just so comfy. Oh how times change! I have decided this week, upon arrival of my new lovely clothes from LOTD, to part with said jumper which now has around no less than five holes and to dress a little less homeless like (how my hubby Ben lovingly puts it).
It took me over one hour to scour the LOTD website! There’s a huge choice and clothes start from only £5, so you can get a good haul for your money. I did wonder if the clothes would be of really poor cheap quality for such a small price, but I’m actually quite impressed.
I also worry about tops fitting me as I’m 5 foot 7, so quite tall. Usually t-shirts are so short I always have to go for longline versions, which are then just normal on me! I chose three t-shirts from LOTD (which stands for Look Of The Day if you were wondering) and they all fit just fine, no belly flashing here!
I’m not the best in front of a camera so I was just going to write a wish list type post, but then I thought hey, why not just brave up, face the camera and show you the clothes on me.
So below is my at-home fashion shoot with not so professional photographer hubby Ben. I think we actually got some OK photos. Usually this sort of scenario ends in a few cross words as Ben can’t be bothered to take photos of me for the blog so just points and shoots, like that will do, and I look bloomin’ awful in the photo and get upset. This time he tried to get a little more arty and we had a bit of fun posing around the house. Oh yes, he had to pose too as I have a upcoming blog post featuring Ben too!
I also have to mention how uncomfortable I am with my photo being taken! I’m still wearing my brace so my mouth is basically out of action. Trying to smile with brace on is just impossible without me looking so smarmy and silly. Anyone who’s had a brace will understand. Even just trying to pull a straight face makes me look ridiculous.
So here goes, my very unprofessional at-home photo shoot!
But I must say, I love all these clothes from LOTD and have been wearing them already!
Guess which one I’ll be wearing on Wednesdays…
LOTD fashion haul
And finally, for the very arty shot which makes me look as tall as the room...
I hope you enjoyed my fashion shoot with LOTD. I love all the clothes and can't wait until Wednesday to rock my new t-shirt!
