Matalan Bargain Blouses


Blouses - Both £3.00 (Matalan Sale)

As many of you may or may not know, since I have been at University I have been working part time at Matalan. Now I've finished my degree I now have a lot of hours at that place, which I once disliked, but I'm beginning to learn so much about retail and fashion. I know Matalan isn't the go to place for everyone, including myself, but on the odd occasion they have some really decent pieces in.

Take these two blouses for example. The top one was priced at £14 and the second at around £18 (I can't exactly remember the full price) but from working the long sale shifts, I was the one who got to sort through all the clothing. This obviously has its advantages, as I was the first to see the sale items, and therefore pick out the things I liked before they went onto the shop floor. When these blouses were full price I would have never paid it, but at £3.00 each its hard to say no.

The top blouse has a buttoned back and fits so well. The little Peplum detail at the bottom is really nice too, I can't wait to wear this. I usually wouldn't go for anything with a print like this, but I thought I'd take a risk and buy something out of my comfort zone. I think this will be the perfect top to team with my favourite Zara jeans - this may be an idea for a post at a later date.

The second blouse is so cute! It is quite see-through but this didn't put me off too much because I really love it. It's a little on the box style, which doesn't usually suit me, and has a little button fastening at the back. The pink isn't something I'd usually go for either: I'm definitely not a pink person, but for some reason I was really drawn to this. It's another cute blouse that I can wear with a pair of jeans, which at the minute is a real staple with this weather were calling 'summer.'

Matalan is really starting to become fashionable and from working there, I can see that they are developing pieces that are beginning to compete with other high-street stores. I can't wait to see what kinds of things they'll bring out in the future.
