Christmas Feature 2013

Staying Fashionable this Christmas with Bonmarché


Whether you’re male or female, young or old we all love getting nice things for Christmas.

As I’ve aged my Christmas gifts have changed, now rather than the toys (my nephew gets toys so I can play with his, woohoo!) I love receiving clothes, perfume, jewellery or things for the home.

I have to be honest and say I have only be in to our local Bonmarché store a handful of times as I’ve always (wrongly) assumed that the shop catered for older people than myself. However when I was recently asked if I would like to choose an item of clothing to review I was shocked to see a lot of on trend items that I would love to get for Christmas.

So after having a look at the items available I chose the lovely Opera Quilted Jacket which is available in black or red.

I chose the jacket in black as black goes with almost anything so I thought it would be the most versatile of the two colours, it was a hard choice though as the red is a great colour.

The jacket arrived and I was impressed by the quality, the jacket is well made, warm and super stylish. It looks great with boots, jeans and a t-shirt but would also be perfect for wearing over a dress on a night out. The jacket is machine washable at 40 degrees which is great as it means it can be easily freshened up if needed.

At £25 the jacket is reasonably priced and would make a good Christmas gift for someone who loves fashion.

I will be popping in to my local Bonmarché store more often to see what’s on offer.
