I used to make sure to go to New Look every time I went in to Leeds city centre shopping. Now they have two stores and you would think I’d prefer the newer of them but it turns out I don’t really like any of them. It’s sad really because they do have decent clothes, shoes and accessories and everything for a reasonable price.
Don’t get me wrong, I still go and now and again I do buy things, mostly shoes or jewellery. I can’t remember when I last bought clothing from New Look but over the weekend it happened. It was a sunny and warm day so we ended up in Scarborough. Who would have thought that they have a New Look shop that I really enjoyed visiting?? It’s amazing how much the planning and design of a store can affect me so much.
Anyway, they still had a sale on and everyone knows that New Look put on a good sale. I had a look at their jeans and found a pair I really liked but weren’t sure as they didn’t have any left in my usual size. I decided to still try them on in a smaller size and yes they fit! Pleased as punch and tried not to think “It’s only because they’re stretchy”.
With the sun showing it’s lovely side this day I also took the opportunity to get my hands on a new pair of sunglasses. I always buy new ones every year but it’s fun and usually I get bored wearing the same ones and same style year in and out. These ones however look a lot similar to two pairs I bought last year but that’s because it’s a style that suits me. At least now I’ve moved up a step from Primark so hopefully these will last a bit longer and not end up on a slant after a few wears.
Anyway, now I know what my glorious colleague is on about all the time buying clothes from New Look. Their jeans, especially in stretchy material, are great and even better when on sale. I got mine for £10.
What’s your opinion on New Look?
