My Autumn Winter Lost Stock Box Five Ways

Saturday, December 12

I blogged about Lost Stock in August when my original lost stock box arrived but as it was a success I couldn't resist ordering an autumn winter box. You might have seen some controversy about the company behind lost stock but I understood when I first purchased how the money was being split between charity and the company so I was happy to purchase again. It's hard to defend the lead time for some peoples summer boxes (there're are still people waiting) but my summer box arrived in around 3 months and my autumn winter box was 72 days. If you read their social media they've made alot of changes in order to be able to do this. 

Due to Coronavirus high street brands have cancelled orders for clothes that have already been produced. This leaves millions of workers in countries like Bangladesh unpaid and at risk of starvation. Buying a box at £41 means you get at least three items of clothing and each order supports a worker and their family for a week. On their website they give a full breakdown of the cost of your box. 

Again, my bag contained two tops and a dress - I was surprised to see a crop top in the package but I've managed to swap it for something I'll wear now. So much like my first order it was two hits and a miss and today I wanted to give you some styling inspiration and create five looks from my three items to get the most out of my bag.

Dress: Lost Stock | Shoes: Clarks | Vest Top: Primark | Tights: The Legwear Co.*
When I pulled this smock dress out of the bag I thought it looked absolutely huge but although roomy when it is on it sits really nicely. Perfectly for over indulging over the festive season! To add an extra layer of warmth I'm wearing a vest top under it and cosy scarf.  

Pinafore: F&F at Tesco | Jumper: Lost Stock | Boots: North Face | Tights: The Legwear Co.*
I've seen this leopard print knit appear in other peoples boxes and I'm so happy to appeared in mine too. It's a pale pink colour which is really pretty and made of the softest material. It's the perfect item to see the denim pinafore I bought in the summer to autumn/winter. 

Top: Lost Stock | Skirt: New Look | Shoes: Clarks | Tights: The Legwear Co.*
The boogy item in my box (and it seems a lot of other peoples) was this black and white floral crop top. However, when worn like this it doesn't look very cropped and the gather in the middle is adjustable. My main issue is it feels too big - more of a 14 than a 12 so I'm really happy someone on facebook was up for a swap.  

Jumper: Lost Stock | Skirt: Fat Face | Boots: Office | Tights: The Legwear Co.*
This Fat Face chord skirt was a charity shop purchase I've worn so much because it goes nicely with every item of knitwear I own for the colder months and this leopard print jumper is no exception. This is my go to weekend look if we are going out and about. 

Dress: Lost Stock | Gilet: New Look | Boots: Clarks | Tights: The Legwear Co.*
I mentioned earlier that this dress was baggy but if that isn't your style it looks good with a belt at the waist too. I've worn it quite casually here with flat boots and my gilet but I think because of the low neckline it could be styled with nice jewellery and heels for a night out (ha! remember those?)

I've worn the same pair of tights with all these outfits - mostly to save time while taking pictures! They are from The Legwear Co. - originally gifted in early 2019 and I can honestly say they are still the tights I reach for all the time.
