Top: New Look
So I’ve been shopping online for a while now, but this is actually the first time that I’ve ever received an order from New Look.
I see their products on UK and European blogs all the time though, so I’ve been keen to try them on for size, and when I saw this cute short-sleeved cardigan, I thought maybe it was time to take the plunge.
I can’t fault New Look for their customer service – I actually tweeted them my query and had a reply within a few hours. Shipping is also very affordable, £7.50 to Australia and it arrived less than a week after I placed the order.
I found the size chart OK – maybe a little stingy, and if you were between sizes I’d definitely suggest going up a size.
The quality’s probably on par with Dorothy Perkins, the cardigan’s quite a thin cotton knit and the detail of the heart (yep – look closely, there’s a heart on the side there) is not nearly as discernible as the website shot would suggest:
Also like Dorothy Perkins, the skirts are frighteningly short – I also ordered this, but it’ll have to go back because it’s waaaaay too short for my own comfort.
I think overall I’m pretty happy with New Look and I’ll probably be ordering from them again. They’ve got a good range of styles and trends, and I especially love their patterned knits. The cardigan that I’m wearing today is cute though irritatingly, it’s also now half the price I bought it for, but that’s a win for you, gentle readers – if you like the look of it, go check it out now.
