This morning, I took small fashion-obsessed child (the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree) and went to try out Gok’s new range at Sainsburys. I picked my favourite pieces and took them into the changing room along with said child and a camera. Here are the results…
|Loved the detail on the hangers|
|This dress is such a beautiful fit and the colours are gorgeous
Flared Hem Dress – £40
|The belt has an unusual buckle|
|Loved this basic silky t-shirt – comes in 2 other colours and is very flattering on.
The short jacket on the hanger didn’t suit me unfortunately
|This is Gok’s famous jersey dress with built-in support slip underneath.
It is so flattering with the knotted detail on the front.
Also comes in black but I tried on in green so you’d see the detail a bit better
|Finally, I tried on these lovely slim leg trousers which also come in several colours.
They are a nice fit though not very forgiving of lumpy legs
There are a few other pieces in the collection, which you can check out on this link.
My verdict? It’s all rather formal so not practical for my lifestyle at the moment. If I still worked, I would immediately buy the jersey dress in both colours and the pencil skirt.
My favourite piece by far was the patterned flare dress and it looked stunning on. How I wish I had something to wear it to. Oh, and small person voted it her favourite too but then pondered on the lack of Hello Kitty embellishment. A key trend for her this SS12
So busy mum with limited budget bought the practical, on trend, silky t-shirt. It will look great with coloured jeans and over the summer with some white trousers.
Nice work Gok – a lovely capsule range, great colours and at a decent price-point but can we please have some practical, gorgeous, but less formal items in the next range for us SAHM’s…pretty please?
