I'm not massively keen on the dresses in 1 & 2 but I can see them being popular given that tartan's bound to be everywhere. I NEED the trousers in 3 - has anyone seen them in store yet?! And the dress in 6 is absolutely AMAZING and I MUST have it, except I know I won't get it because the small sizes are bound to sell out in 5 minutes and then appear on eBay for £80.

DRESSES:

1. £12, due in store around now
2. £14, due in store mid-August


3. £14, due in store end of July
4. £12, due in store end of September


5. £12, due in store early August
6. £12, due in store around now


7. £14, due in store about now
8. £14, due in store early October


9. £12, due in store end of July
10. £16, due in store early November


11. £14, due in store end of October
12. £14, due in store ??

Some of these are pretty awful (I'm looking at 4, 5 & 6), some are alright but have been done before about a million times (7 & 9), and once again, 8 is AMAZING. 2 has the potential to be really nice but I can imagine the cut not suiting most people.

OTHER CLOTHES:

1. Cardigan £10, due in store mid-August
2. Coat £25, due in store end of September


3. Sequin jacket £15, due in store end of October
4. Studded faux-leather jacket £25, due in store early November


5. Blouse £8, due in store mid-July
6. Skirt £10, due in store mid-August


7. Dogtooth cape £21, due in store end of September
8. Skirt £10, due in store mid-September


9. Jumper £10, due in store end of August
10. Jumper £13, due in store end of October


11. Faux-fur jacket £25, due in store end of October


12. Leather jacket £25, due in store end of August

Nothing really stands out here - 3 is surely headed for the bargain rails and the rest is pretty much standard issue.

SHOES:

1. £12, due in store early August
2. £15, due in store end of August


3. £15, due in store end of September
4. £12, due in store end of September


5 & 6. £12, due in store end of August


7 & 8. £15, due in store early October


9. £15, due in store end of August

I'm getting a bit sick of lace-up heels now, ENOUGH. 3 are exactly the sort of shoes I'd never, ever wear in real life but would probably end up buying anyway if I came across a pair in my size. 7 & 8 are a bit of a blatant attempt to cash in on ~Agyness Deyn style~ and I can't see them selling that well in most places - decent price though.

BAGS:

1. £8, due in store end of July
2. £8, due in store end of July


3. £8, due in store about now
4. £6, due in store end of July

I like the tartan bag but that's it... 3 is hideous.

OTHER STUFF:


1. Belt £3, due in store end of August
2. Belt £3, due in store end of August


3. Trilby £3, due in store end of August
4. Sequin beret £5, due in store early October


5. Knitted beret £3, due in store mid-October


6. Leather gloves £8, due in store end of August
7. Leather driving gloves £6, due in store end of July


8. Necklace £2.50, due in store about now
9. Necklace £3, due in store mid-August


10. Earrings £2, due in store end of August
11. Bracelet £2.50 & ring £1.50, due in store end of July

The jewellery is as rubbish as ever and the berets are exactly the same as last year's, but I've definitely got my eye on the trilby and the second belt.

Overall, there's some shit stuff and some brilliant stuff in there and I expect the brilliant stuff will, as usual, sell out in a ridiculously short space of time. You've got to hand it to them, though; no other budget-priced high street chain is as good at nailing the season's trends.
