The second of my favourite shops to shop is Glassons.  As one of the more popular clothing stores, Glassons is always up with the fashion trends and has frequent discounts.  The quality of their clothes is not as high as Ezibuy, but definitely satisfying.  They should last you for several years, depending on how well you keep your clothes.   I particularly like their selection of cardigans and blouses.  One of my favourite tie-up blouses has come from there.  In love!  They sport bright colours and their prices aren’t that unreasonable for the clothes that they sell.  The only two problems that I have with Glassons are these.  Firstly, every girl and her mother wears their clothes, so I wouldn’t advise buying a whole outfit from that shop.  Instead, just a few pieces that you can mix and match with other items of clothing from places like JeansWest or Jay Jays (two other shops that I quite like).  The second problem that I have with them is in regards to their dresses.  They always seem to be at an awkward in between length where you kinda have to wear leggings to keep them modest but know that they really weren’t made to wear with leggings (also applies to some of their skirts).  Just a tad too short for me I’m afraid, which is a real pity as I do like some of the dresses that they sell.  Apart from that, I do really like the clothes that they offer and would reccomend them to anybody.

I have never bought online from Glassons, as we have a store just fifteen minutes away from us.  They have shops in just about, if not all, the malls across the country and are generally very well stocked in sizes and colours.

Below are just a few of their clothes that I wouldn’t mind acquiring 🙂

(Still not quite sure of the short at the front long at the back thing… what do you think?)

I’m still keeping my eyes out for a soft denim blouse and a nice white one.  Anyway, go check out Glasson’s website.  I reccomend their clothes and love how they add a pop of bright colour to any outfit. 🙂

I hope you’ve been enjoying these reviews on my favourite clothing stores and as always I’d love to hear your comments 🙂

Bless you over these Christmas and summer holidays!

I  know what you’re thinking… but I can explain myself!  Before I do however, I would like to say sorry.  Sorry for being slack… but here is the fashion photo shoot you’ve all been waiting for!

Ok, the explanation.  I’ve been sick, yep, down with the flu.  Also I’ve been procrastinating.  I was prepared to write a fill in post until the photos were ready, but that’s when I got a fever.  Anyhoo, I’m on the way to recovery, and will make up for my lack of writing and presence on this blog.

Alrighty, I’m sorry peeps, here it is again, but I just love this skirt SO. MUCH. that I had to share it with you again.  If anything, that’s a good thing, because it will show you how to style a basic staple piece in many different ways.  If you’ve been following Creative Touch long enough, you will have noticed that the last time we styled this skirt, it was summer.  This time, it’s winter.  Very versatile don’t you think?  In summer, I wore a sleeve-less top, bare legs, and a light cardigan.  In winter, tights, a coat, and a slightly warmer top.  If you do this, it will mean that you get much more wear out of your clothes without having to repeat your looks.  This advice goes for any of your plain skirts, trousers or tops.  Be creative, it’ll pay off.  You won’t have to buy as many items either, which will in the end save money.  I’m not saying don’t buy a piece of clothing here and there, because let’s face it, I’m a normal female too, but I am saying that you now have another option.  Besides, rare splurges are much more fun than frequent impulsive buying which you you always regret later on anyway.

Ok, enough advice… bring on the photos!

Thank you very much everyone!  By the way don’t be afraid to comment.  We love comments!  If you have any ideas for another hair tutorial, just let me know, as I haven’t got any ideas put into place at the moment.

We are working on an accessories post as well.  We have a couple more photos to do, but it should provide some variety to our usual fashion shots 🙂  I find them interesting too, and you’ll be able to see what shoes we have and our massive, and I mean MASSIVE, collection of scarves.

Enjoy the coming weekend!
