Every now and again, you'll come across a store - be it online or while out and about - that you begin to adore and start wishing you'd discovered it sooner. On this occasion, Notonthehighstreet.com is that said store. Up until recently, I'd never heard of it, but when I was contacted about working with them, I had a meerkat moment. I don't always jump to offers of featuring brands just for the sake of receiving freebies, but after having a quick skim of the site - and you can pretty much tell within one minute whether it'll be to your liking or not - I was pleasantly surprised.
In a sentence, Notonthehighstreet.com is an online department store that offers creative and unique products produced by small, independent businesses. To find out more, you can have a read (and watch) here.
True to its name, you'll discover some real gems on here, some stunning accessories, and fantastic gift ideas. There are some super-pretty, girly, and feminine buys to be had, and I found myself occupied for one morning and the better half of that afternoon just browsing the different departments and products. Not everything will be to everyone's taste, but I can guarantee a fair few products will catch your eye.
DRESS: ASOS | EARRINGS & NECKLACE: eBay | FASCINATOR: Eureka & Nash (via notonthehighstreet.com) | NAIL POLISH: Unforgettable by Dielle (via notonthehighstreet.com) | SHOES: Linzi | CLUCH: Barratts
You, may recognise this dress from a post I did over a year ago (read here). I thought I'd joosh it up a little with some new accessories - after all, that's the best way to restore pieces you love. I found this gorgeous facinator, which makes the outfit feel a little Ascot-esq and thus, tres elegant. The red nail polish by Dielle, is vibrant and application is a dream!
Here are some items currently in my Notonthehighstreet.com basket for springtime:
I think this'll be my 'go-to' store whenever I want something a little different, personalised or - like it's namesake - something that's not on the high street.
