HtCC – Bibico

Modcloth sent out a newsletter a few weeks ago relating to Earth Day to promote their more ethically sourced and eco-friendly items, and at the bottom was a link to a brand called Bibico. I loved the few items that Modcloth had on their website, so thought I’d look up the companies own website. For some reason, I remember thinking “I bet this is a local brand”. Guess what, it is! Based in Somerset, it was started up by Nieves Ruiz, a Spanish designer who wanted to create an alternative label.

Cassie Blouse (£40) – Lulabella Dress (£60) – Meadow Maxi Dress (£65)

Its always good to see more ethically based fashion lines easily available – I’m just as guilty as anyone for popping into Primark for a cheap fashion fix, but I’m trying to add in more well made pieces to my wardrobe – at least you can be a bit more confident that it will last a bit longer than a few washes!

Clothing at Tesco – Too Much Choice!

I was reading the weekly Money Saving Expert email (brilliant for finding out about discounts, etc) and noticed that Tesco had finally gotten their Clubcard stuff online (they may have before, I don’t know). They have a section in “Your Account” where you can see all vouchers ever issued and any unspent ones. Before I moved in with Alex, I hadn’t changed the address on my Clubcard and so hadn’t seen any vouchers in a year or so (I wasn’t getting much anyway, but now we do a LOT of shopping at tesco) I found that I had £15 of unspent vouchers. Score! Even better, Tesco are doing their exchange thing where they double the value. So, I’ve got £30 to spend on a site I knew about but hadn’t really spent much time on.

Here’s a few of the outfits I’ve created – each top/bottom combination comes to about £30, and none of the dresses are over £16 – so I could get 2!

The only problem now is that I have too much choice!
