I always try to take advantage of the offer because I have long loved Country Road and I want to maintain my loyalty status - plus I'm always after something new for work.
I'm hearing and reading online that people are loving this new season collection, but truth be told, I have found it quite challenging to really like anything in store to say the least. The cuts are not flattering and I guess acid pastels aren't really my thing...
I spent 3 lunch breaks last week to progressively try on every item in the store to maybe change my mind about it - to no avail.
As always the sales assistants have tried their big sell on me: "but you can tie it back with the neutral pieces in your wardrobe". But I’m my own person when it comes to shopping and what I wear – you cannot convince me to be otherwise.
Furthermore nothing really seems worthy of my hard earned money. Two of the dresses that I tried on (including the one on the far left in the image above) and considered buying were comprised from polyester! Country Road, if you want me to remain your loyal customer, please do not make garments comprised from inferior fabrics!
I did buy something in the end (not new season)... a dress and matching bed linen and pillow cases... both devoid of colour, both black and white striped :)
