Following on from UK High Street giants like Topshop, Asos, Zara, Next & River Island realising Australians are crying out for more shopping options – another two of the other big names of the UK high street WAREHOUSE & OASIS have woken up and as of this week are offering FREE shipping & FREE returns to Australia.
I have a soft spot for WAREHOUSE – it was my first ever proper job -at just 16yrs old – I was too young for University of St Andrews so they told me to take a year out and defer my entry. So I worked at WAREHOUSE from leaving school for 4 months before I went to boarding school in Germany & then did an exchange in France to help my language skills before starting my French & German degree at University of St. Andrews.
I thought I had landed in heaven – a large clothing allowance and 40% discount. Ahh !
Anyway reminiscing aside here are 2 STEELEMyStyle picks from WAREHOUSE & OASIS.
1) SPECIAL EVENT DRESS
Gatsby Flapper Dress from OASIS $113 AUD
In terms of style - Oasis is like Sportsgirl meets Jigsaw. Quality is pretty good.
Love Oasis’ take on Gucci SS/2012 collection – work the Gatsby Flapper look with this little number.
Just add strappy sandals or T bar heels in gold or black.
Oasis are known for their Occasion Dresses so check out the full range here.
2) STATEMENT TOP
Make the most of your waist and try the peplum trend
with this cute Floral Peplum top. from WAREHOUSE $42 AUD
WAREHOUSE, founded by Jeff Banks is a stalwart of the UK High Street – for Australians it is kind of like Portmans meets Cotton On with a dash of Topshop for good measure. Some interesting pieces. Not expensive but not hugely great on investment pieces.
This cute top can be very versatile – for easy work wear glamour – Try pairing it with a black pencil skirt & black booties – or amp it up with some black leather leggings or pop colour jeans & boots.
Enjoy and let me know how you go !
