A MANGO Crush

Having been a student for almost 4 years now, it's no surprise that some of the things in my closet have been there for.. well, 4 years. Between the span of 18 and 21, your tastes REALLY change, and you no longer wear clothes just to class, or just to party - there comes the inbetweens, like going to a nice bar, a more casual party, or things like interviews or work do's. Because of this, I've felt my wardrobe REALLY lacking in many things..

MANGO has been my biggest eye catcher since late last year, but I've yet to buy anything from them! Their things are always so classy yet down-to-earth and completely up my street - and I genuinely cannot wait til I can have a splurge if/when I get a job! Does anyone have experience with MANGO items? Anyway, here are a few things that I've been lemming these past few days.. the * are the ones that are currently in my basket!

 Bowling Handbag* £42.99/Quilted Shopper Handbag* £29.99/Zip Closure Messenger Handbag £9.99
Zip Pocket Jeans £22.99/Button Down Jumpsuit* £29.99/Decorative Ruffles Blouson* £24.99
 Classic Style Sunglasses* £14.99/Roll Up Shorts £17.99/Denim Shorts £24.99

So do I take the plunge?!
What are some of your favourite stores? :) Does anyone have any opinions about MANGO?

P.S. Hi to all my new followers, and thank you to both my old and new followers - I've hit 1,400 and very happy! :) I hope this blog continues to not disappoint! :)

  3. I've been wearing Mango since I was a teenager. As I grow older, I still like them because they have stuffs for different age groups. However, Mango quality isn't as great as it used to. Nowadays I will not pay a full retail price unless I really like that particular pieces. Thank goodness for a Mango outlet - I buy most of my stuffs there now ;)

    1. Aww that's a shame! I find that a lot of stores have gone down in quality but raise prices, and had a feeling MANGO may be one of them! I need to check out outlet now ;)

  6. I went to Mango the other day and found some gorgeous small quilted handbags, very "chanel" but they were so expensive! I love Mango but I feel like it's gotten more expensive over the past 5 or 6 years :( xxxx

    1. I think a lot of brands do that which is such a shame! I'm hesitant to order online because I'm afraid I wont think the quality will match the price!

  8. I've only bought basics from Mango in the past, and they've lasted really well with washing etc. so I think they are generally good quality as a brand. Love that first bowling bag - it's gorgeous!

  12. LOVE your choices! I really want to go shopping now!

    I've always spent hours wandering round Mango planning out my ideal wardrobe but have never been able to justify buying anything, literally haven't had the budget. Just started my first job and I'm so excited to start re-vamping my wardrobe and filling all the gaps that have been waiting to be filled for ages. Mango and Zara here I come...
