Matalan AW 2011

I was kindly invited to Matalan's Autumn / Winter press day, so I popped along with a friend in tow to have a peek. Even though it's hard to think about being wrapped up in coats, thick socks and jumpers now this lovely sunshine is upon us, it's great to see what we have have to look forward to; I do love Autumn!


Here are a few of my favourite items that I will be looking for in store.

I just love these floral boots,  a great buy for festivals, I would pair with a pretty dress and long chunky knitted socks


I find 50's style dresses so flattering, this super feminine piece could be worn to work with ballet shoes and a cardigan or dressed up with heels for a night out.

Navy 50's style dress with nautical scarf (sold separately) 
This top is one that I will definitely be looking for, it's designed to be worn with the belt at the front (as pictured in the first image below) and the larger of the embroidered panel on your back, however I would like to try it in reverse and wear the larger panel at the front.

Satchels have been all over the high street for the past few seasons and look to continue to be strong, many of the ones I've seen and that I own are in tan, but I love this robust looking black body satchel, a must for AW11 in my opinion.

  1. The only thing with Matalan is that there's no store near my place! I love the print on the dress!

  5. Those floral boots are amazing. I'm really surprised they're Matalan - look more like Clarks Originals or something Office would do. Sure the Matalan price tag will be much more appealing! xx
