So the other day, A|Wear held a S/S 2011 photocall, and at some stage during the day, this photograph was taken:

This photograph has all of my favourite things in it. Country roads! Fashion! High heels! Little dogs! An old lady looking grumpy but still standing there for the photo! Love love love.

It would almost be enough to make me want to shop in A|Wear forever, but for now I will give you my top tips (because I know you’re screaming out for them) for A|Wear shopping.

1. Try everything on. That may seem really simplistic, but I have purchased the same pair of jeans twice in that store, and had to buy a different size. The exact same style of jean! I don’t understand it, but the store’s sizing is a bit nuts.

2. Beware of knitwear. Their knits may look great, but a lot of them are quite low quality and will not survive a wash. Just be warned - you may need to spend a lifetime handwashing if you’re to get any wear out of them (and really, who has the time?).

3. (Another basic) Read the label. If something from A|Wear says dry-clean only, you can bet your bottom dollar I ain’t buying it – or I am buying it because it’s too cheap to pass up, and handwashing it. I hate dry-cleaning anything that’s not designer – it just seems like such a waste of my hard-earned post-USC dollahs.

4. Check out the jewellery. I have got loads of little bits from A|Wear that people always admire, and they’ve been cheap as chips. They do great necklaces especially – although they will make the back of your neck green. Ditto for rings, bracelets. Except, obviously not the back of your neck.

Et voila! Enjoy!
