AX Paris: birthday presents


I had some money from my parents to spend, as there was nothing I wanted for my birthday. With spring around the corner, I decided to buy a few bits for the season’s wardrobe, from AX Paris. I seem to be getting a fair few emails from them recently, whether it’s new stock or discount codes – I always find there’s never anything I want when I have money though. I used a 40% discount this time and this was on purchases from the spring section – I found it so difficult narrowing down my choices. In the end, I settled on:
Cuff & collar small daisy dress – £25 (I bought for £15)
I love floral print as it’s so girly and just reminds me of spring so much – it’s also a sure-fire way of injecting colour into a drab wardrobe. This dress was also available in black, but I chose the red as it’s a colour I don’t wear often and it’s uplifting. I love the white collar and cuffed sleeves, they make it that bit more girly. The material is stretchy too, so it’s flattering and I love the length – long enough to wear for work, but not too long! Although I’ve worn it to work, I bought it for weekend wear too; it’d be perfect for a picnic or barbecue. I love how my colleagues also said I looked like Minnie Mouse in it... All I need now are the ears!
Quilted PU jacket – £35 (I bought for £21)
I recently threw out my leather jacket as it was so tatty and hood was in a right state. I’m still searching for its replacement, but I was in need of a spring jacket; something light I can wear from the car to the office and vice versa. This quilted jacket is perfect for that and it’s gorge! I don’t usually go for the cropped style in clothing because it doesn’t suit my shape at all but this fits fine – so long as I don’t try and do it up! I love to show off new clothes as soon as I get them so I wore this and my peplum top with leggings in Berlin!
Zip front peplum top – £25 (I bought for £15)
When I entered the Little Mistress competition, I mentioned my love for peplum – here’s yet another item that’s found its way into my wardrobe. Again, I could have purchased this in black, but I went for the stone colour, which is effectively, nude. I like the zip-up style as it makes the top more dressy, rather than a plain peplum top.  It’s not at all tight and like the dress, is stretchy – I can even put it over my head, rather than unzip it to put it on. It’s perfect for nights out but now I just want to buy the trousers I blogged about, as otherwise I’m just going to be wearing it with wet-look leggings.
Have you bought anything from AX Paris recently?
