Black Silk Shirts



Taking my cue from the Aldi adverts ....

Decisions, decisions!


  • Equipment Signature silk shirt available here and here.
  • Uniqlo silk shirt available here. And on special offer at the moment for £29.90 instead of £39.90 (02.10.14).
--------------------------------


Last Note : 

  • Does anyone recognise who's closet I'm in?

    1. Correct and with a lot of faffing! I'm still wondering myself how I managed to pull that off!

  2. How can that be possible. And how can an equipment look a like be so different in price. On second thoughts don't answer that.

    1. I don't know but I've not seen any Equipment silk shirts to compare but I have had two of the Uniqlo silk ones so far and I've loved them so am happy to go for another one!

  3. The Uniqlo shirt is a complete no-brainer....not to say I wouldn't love the Equipment one though! Loving your moment in Carrie's wardrobe Sue, your Aldi tag line is genius too! xx

    1. I would love a real moment in Carrie's wardrobe not that I would fit in anything apart from the shoes - but hey - I love shoes!

    1. I do like a little bit of Uniqlo to build up the wardrobe basics. It's definitely worth a look.

  5. I saw this earlier and I had to LOL at the fact that you've photoshopped yourself into Carries wardrobe, just brilliant! Personally, I prefer the Equipment one, but I think I'm biased as I have the black in the sleeveless version and it's a dream to wear, it washes so well, and is that silky suede feel. Howver.. if you can be bothered with mail forwarding, Everlane's black silk l/s washed shirt is lovely. Anyway, what am I saying, the Uniqlo one is pretty good for the price! x

    1. I've heard good things about the Equipment shirts and they seem to be the holy grail brand of the silk shirts but the reality is that I won't get the wear to justify having something so expensive stuck in my wardrobe so the Uniqlo one would suit me and my budget for now. If I won the lottery, I would be interested in getting one partly for comparison purposes (daft I know). You can imagine me now with a checklist ticking off the pros and cons of each one can't you? And Everlane just taunts me but I hope to get my hands on a few pieces soon - I have a lovely enabler over in the states by the name of Joanna.

  6. Such a good find! I love Equipment but it's far too pricey for me. May have to do a bit more UNIQLO shopping soon...

    1. I can't honestly say I love Equipment not having seen any of their shirts to compare but I'm happy with the price of the Uniqlo ones and the quality. Good for those with smaller purses :o)

    1. I've suddenly got the hang of some of this picture editing stuff - very basic but basic is all I need. I have unleashed a monster!

    1. It would take me a whole blog post to tell you - it's not that difficult but it's hard to explain :o(

  11. I love the picture. You have too much time on your' hands ;) I must check out Uniqlo more often. I have some bits and bobs, that are so good, and I have fleeces that N never takes off in the winter. H xx

  12. I'm thinking I know which one you went with... Funny because I've always THOUGHT I wanted an equipment shirt, all the hype and all those beautiful colors. But you know, when I've tried them on, they just don't fit me quite right and some of them are too sheer for my taste as well. So, not just the price point that makes them less than ideal.

  14. Carrie's, Carrie's, Carries's! You've just reminded me I had started from Series 1 last week and haven't watched an episode in a few nights! Michelle just directed me over to Uniqlo for the merino and I spied the silk reduced. There is a sleeveless one I am after....haven't checked out yet though.x
