Now I don't know about you, but House of Fraser has always been my go-to shop for something fancy. If I've got a wedding/Christening/big birthday coming up, I'll head to straight to the department store, safe in the knowledge I'll be able to pick up a gorgeous dress, or beautiful clutch.
The store hasn't, until now, always been on my 'must shop' list when I need, say, a handbag for work, or a new pair of sensible flat shoes. Sure, it's somewhere I'll happily go to browse the latest make-up must-haves, but somehow I always up up in Boots, where the beauty treats work out that bit better value thanks to my trusty Advantage Card.
Good news for people like me, then: people who are just after something that bit more affordable. House of Fraser has recently branched out to include items from high street retailers like Dorothy Perkins, Jane Norman, and Warehouse among its online shelves of higher end pieces.
Naturally, I just had to have a look at the site and pick out a couple of things:
|Dorothy Perkins yellow satchel|
My bag collection, in fact my wardrobe in general, was practically crying out for a spot of cheery colour. So when I spied this vibrant yellow satchel (a bargain at £22) from Dorothy Perkins over on the House of Fraser site, I just had to snap it up.
I have something of a thing for statement earrings at the moment, so I headed to the jewellery section of the site and picked up this vintage-looking pearl-esque beauties from Jane Norman. Are you a fan?
Like sites like ASOS, House of Fraser is now a one-stop-shop (quite literally, really) for all your fashion needs - both high street and luxury. Perfect if you're looking for a new outfit for an upcoming event, eh?
I'm not always a fan of hitting the high street to get caught up among other frantic shoppers all trying to cinch a wedding guest dress just days before the event itself, so this is ideal.
Will you be checking out House of Fraser and its new high street offerings? Seen anything you like the look of?
