Nothing says YAS QUEEN like a discount coupon for American Apparel for the Queen's Birthday long weekend! Over the past year I've become a little obsessed with AA, and despite the fact that the clothes are pretty overpriced and their sizes make absolutely no sense to me (I'm an L in skirts and an S in tops, go figure) I'm a big advocate for the quality of their clothes.
I popped into the store on Chapel Street this weekend to use my discount and picked up three pieces. So yes, I may be using the word 'haul' a little generously here, but "a winter American Apparel shopping trip that consisted of me buying three items of clothes" didn't really have the same ring to it.
Confession: I actually already own both of these items in different colours. I have the cable knit jumper in both black and grey, and the tennis skirt in navy. I wear them so much that I decided it was worth investing in a couple of different colours. The jumpers are fantastic for winter, they're so warm and really keep out the cold. On regular day's I generally wear the skirt with tights or over the knee socks as it's pretty short, but for a night out or a music festival, I bring out the bare legs.
The final piece I picked up is a dress mainly intended for going out in. I decided against putting photos of me wearing it as it's quite sheer and I'm still a bit of a newbie when it comes to sharing photos of myself here. It's pretty much the perfect dress to wear for a night out dancing and is really flattering too.
