Warehouse – and I’ve made no secret of this – has long been one of my favourite high-street stores. It’s where I go when I have an occasion, be it a night out or a work interview, for which I need to be dressed a certain way and feel as if the clothes I own won’t quite make the cut. This, of course, is a falsity because I have enough clothes for almost every occasion. The dress I wore to my MA graduation, for example, is from Warehouse; the dress I wore for Christmas last year when I was just feeling a bit rubbish and needed something with that certain “oomph” factor.

So imagine my delight when I got a “new in at Warehouse” email containing these goodies:

The stripey dress (€84) is obviously my favourite – being both patterned and jewel coloured, but I’m also quite fond of the sheer dress (€84), despite its assymetric hemline. As for the suede shorts (€88), they wouldn’t be my friend by any stretch of the imagination, but they’re still gorgeous. And the leather bag (€97)? Simple but eye-catching. What do you think? Love or loathe?
