Inside Pull & Bear!

The first time I came across Pull & Bear was when I was on holiday in Fuerteventura last May. It was right next door to Zara.....I should have guessed then that they belonged to the same group Inditex! I loved the store, I think like Bershka they are a bit younger and more casual than Zara. The prices points are a bit more reasonable too! I was very happy to see that they were opening a branch in Cabot Circus in Bristol and have visited the store several times since it's opened and may have made the odd purchase or 2!


I love the way that this store merchandises in a wardrobe effect, it's perfect for showcasing outfits and includes the accessories, it draws me in as a customer.





They have found a really amazing way to display their shoes too! My daughter loved this VW camper!



The first purchase I made at Pull & Bear was a couple of months back. I was looking for a slogan sweatshirt and as this was a trend I was just dipping my toe into I found this great one for a bargain £17.99! It's still available online here 


They also have a great selection of slogan T's which were also £17.99, the knitwear displayed underneath was £12.99


Another thing that really impressed me about this store was the fitting rooms. They were spacious, clean and the lighting was excellent. Always a major bonus in my book! My daughter was really impressed by the cool and funky seating area where she could lounge whilst I was trying on......fair to say that made us both happy! Here's a fitting room shot!



Now the jacket I'm sporting here was the reason for my trip into Bristol on Monday. I saw it last week and kept thinking about it. I love it and was all set to purchase it but having already bought a Gap mac a couple of months back I got my sensible head on and left it behind! Here's the website pic 


Fear not! It wasn't a wasted journey though as I didn't come away empty-handed......I did make a small but very useful purchase in this little dress. A fab bargain at just £15.99, it's the sort thing that will be perfect to sling on to do the school run in the warmer weather to come! Optimistic or what?


Here's me in it after a little try on!


So has Pull & Bear reached a town near you? Have you come across their website and ordered online? I was impressed to see that they offer click and collect as when I first visited they were out of stock in my size of the dress! There will be more purchases for me from this lovely store of that I am sure!

Here a few of my outfits from the last week or so!


Whistles biker jacket (last year)
Zara black cupro T (current)
M&S loungewear trousers (old)
Kurt Geiger Laurel slip-ons (current)


Topshop Coat (last year)

I shall be back shortly......lots to report on as I have been a very bad girl this month and notched up a fair few purchases already, that said I have found some cracking bargains in the mid-season sales! Anyone else been like me and really splurged this month....we are not even half way through! I'm off to Westfield shopping centre for the first time tomorrow, there is very little chance of me coming back empty handed isn't there?! 

Look forward to hearing you comments, I love responding to them!

Back soon!

Michelle xx

  6. Hello! I've never been into a Pull & Bear, but don't think I've seen any - will definitely have to pop in now that it's on my radar. Love the new stripey dress. I've been shockingly bad this month but intend to spend nothing at all next month, it has to be done!
    Have a great time at Westfiekd, lucky you!

    1. Loving my new dress Celina.....I can't wait to get the sandals out but it's just not warm enough yet!! Our weather needs to notch up a few more degrees!! xx

  8. Oh you were good putting the trench back. I have one too but I'm always looking just incase another one comes along. I'm after a navy one. And I've not had the opportunity to cross paths with Pull & Bear yet though I've had a good nosey at their website. They do have some goodies on there and your dress is such a good little pick - you're going to get lots of wear out of that providing we get the hot summer we have been forecasted! I could do with them opening up in Leeds.

    1. There is stil time for me to falter and end up with the trench Sue.....I wouldn't mind betting the Pull & Bear is bigger at Westfield where I am heading today....and there is a Uniqlo! Gulp! My husband shouldn't be encouraging me to go along for the ride whilst he is working!! I do hope you get one of these stores near you soon, they do indeed have lots of goodies!! xx

    1. Have seen some more Breton dresses I could most definately be tempted by Kat! I am sure you will have already clocked the Zara TRF one with the longer back, white with a navy stripe.....gorgeous! Also saw a great one in Bershka....not such good quality as the P&B or Zara ones but still worth a look!
      Can see me sporting the Next jacket alot!! Goes with so much and is the perfect weight for this time as year as you can still throw another jacket over the top when it get's chilly! xx

  12. Like you we first discovered P&B in Spain several years ago. In fact when it opened on Oxford Street, my daughter was most distressed as it had been her little secret along with Bershka! I've just bought a couple of throw on dresses similar to this one but have to say I'm loving the stripes x
