My Monki order has arrived! Yay yay yay! I’m so excited too show you the few bits that I’ve picked up! If your not sure what Monki is, it’s an international clothing store and website that sells quirky and original pieces at very affordable prices that are brilliant quality. I had a sneaky look on the website and discovered they had a sale… I have no will power so an order was placed, which is what has brought us here! All the items fit lovely, they fall really flatteringly on your body, (which is hard to find nowadays!) and are very original designs. The shipping too the UK cost me £6, which I thought was a bit steep, but the package was coming from Denmark, so I guess in retrospect it really isn’t that bad. The order totalled to £33, and I think I got some real good bargains, and if you go on to the site now, they may be a chance that some of these items are still in stock! (If your interested) So lets get started!
First up we have this ‘Don’t be a square’ t shirt. I think this is my favourite one, because I just love that saying! As a ‘square’ is someone who is perfect, and conforms to all social rules (Freud would call it giving in to your superego – sorry getting a bit psychoanalytical…) and by saying don’t, it’s like defying social rules, being different and individual, which is something that I stand for passionately. So that’s the deep meaning behind this buy, on and it was the bargain price off £3! There was no way I was leaving it at that price.
Next up we have this massive oversized t-shirt, that has ‘in between’ written on the front and on the sleeves. I love this t-shirt, I just kind of wished I got it in a smaller size because it is a bit too big, but I still love it to wear with jeans or shorts, well with any tight fitting bottoms it would make a really cool casual outfit. It cost only £5! For what you get, it’s a brilliant price, and is actually a really cool piece.
And lastly on the t-shirts we have this zodiac animal print t-shirt (which I am actually wearing as I am writing this) I adore this top! It’s 100% cotton, meaning it’s super soft and comfortable, and the loose fit is really flattering on my body. I also think the print is really unique and cool, it just looks like a doodle that’s unfinished and I love that effortless look it gives. I really love pieces like this to layer up in winter and wear casually in summer with some cool colourful trousers or shorts for a really cool effortless look that I’m really into at the moment. Less is more and all that jazz.
The final two pieces that I bought are both of the cropped sweater variety, and I adore them both. The first one is the ‘Verona sweat’ and consists of and animal print with prisms and weird shapes, this fits perfectly, like all the others and the print is similar to the zodiac t shirt, which is probably why I love this so much. Team it with pretty much anything high waisted and you’re good to go! Secondly we have the ‘Chain Reaction’ sweater, which is a bit less cropped. I fell in love with the print on this, I had never seen anything like it before and thought it was really cool and casual, and fingers crossed if I get into Uni, these are the everyday casual staple pieces that I will need with me. Oh, and these were both £8 each, so again a bargain! Especially for the quality.
