“Very” Monochrome sport luxe

After seeing various lovely pieces of clothing on bloggers I follow from “Very” I decided to take a peek and see if there was anything that took my fancy.

I was surprised that it is exactly the same as Littlewoods, same clothes, same layout, same everything! I know it is the same company but why are the clothes exactly the same? Have I missed something?  Feeling a bit confused.

Anyway, after scouring through a couple of items stood out for me and my monochrome mind, a box cut monochrome top that had a grid look and some loose fit sport luxe trousers. I thought they looked far more expensive than they were and I loved the grid design on the top.

I also found some white and black flats that had a lovely gold chain detail round the ankle and were a complete bargin.

When they arrived I wasn’t disappointed in the style, they were comfy and all three item’s looked great together,  a nice addition to my ever expanding monochrome wardrobe. The material is a bit ( dare I say it) “cheap”, this is my problem with some high street item’s it look’s ok but I am not sure I would feel comfortable near an open flame…I may even be afraid to walk to quickly in the trousers in case of random sparks but when all said and done, you pay for what you get and I am quite happy to wear these and walk slowly!

  1. Gorgeous look as always.
    I often see lots of great looks using Very- perhaps I should browse. Having worked for another big catalogue brand and a launch of a ‘trend-led’ sister brand I’ve seen this before with stock shared between sites. Sometimes it can work but you’re right; make it different, brands!!

    • I just think its weird Helen, I couldn’t see any difference at all… I may be wrong, but why not just have one site? Anyway, glad you like the outfit, Thanks for your comment 🙂 xx

  2. Yes I’ve always been confused as to why they are branded differently. Very isn’t on my radar but have to say I’ve seen so great stuff this year. Love your outfit Amanda x

  3. I think you look rather lovely in this actually and I would say the whole outfit especially the top has a touch of Whistles about it.

    On the whole, you do pretty much get what you pay for but sometimes there are still some gems out there for not very much. I have to say, I do love it when I get something really good on the high street and it holds its own against some pricier items. That’s half the fun for me.

    • Thank you Sue, I totally agree its always great to get a piece on the high street at a bargin price. I think as I have got older I am more fussy about cut and material, so its also great to bag a designer bargin when budget allows! 🙂 x

  4. I can honestly say I have NEVER visited the Very website or Littlewoods! I shall rectify that right now. You look stunning in monochrome

    • You have to have a good look, there are some nice bits. Prefer ASOS if I am honest, being a visual person even the way the models are wearing the clothes is a bit uninspiring… See what you think 🙂 x
