I had 20 minutes yesterday between sorting out passports for my son and I (torture) and the school run, to dash into Sainsburys and see what Gok stuff was available to try on. Not all items were available but I grabbed all the 10's I could find (apart from skirts and trousers) and here's how I got on...
First up, the two main dresses from the collection.
The first one is a gorgeous purple/black brocade material with a detachable crystal detail on the neck. It's a lovely fit, has a double slit in the rear hem (which I love in a dress or skirt) and would work equally well on Christmas day, at a party or in the office (with the bling removed). It's got the shaping slip lining that all Gok's dresses have and only looks a bit bumpy on me here because I was too lazy to take off my thermals! #fashionfail
This next one doesn't look like much on the hanger but it's actually lovely on. It's a good length for the tall girls out there and the sleeves are a bonus. It's available in purple and also in black:
Next up, this cream blouse is really pretty. It's got a quilted detail on the shoulders and really lovely silver rectangular buttons on the neckline and the cuffs. The material is quite heavy and not overly see-through. It's a bit too dressy for me day-to-day but it would be great as a work top or dressed up with some statement trousers & heels for a night out.
I was interested to try on this purple wrap top as I've seen quite a few tops like this in the shops over recent months. It wasn't my cup of tea and came up quite small on the waist. For a flat chester like me, the next size up would have gaped too much on the neckline. Perhaps one for more of an apple figure.
Finally, I tried on the grey coatigan. It's got PU trim on the pockets and is lined in a jersey material, which makes it really cosy. I didn't like it on the hanger or in the look book but I did like it on. Though I was freezing and it was so soft....
Looks a bit mumsy till you add a scarf..
So only a small selection of his collection but I hope you've enjoyed seeing it for 'real'.
Before I sign off, I did bring one non-Gok item into the changing room too...how cute is this TU jumper? Would look gorgeous with a denim shirt underneath too. Tempted to go back for it...
Hope you're having a good weekend,
