I was a big fan of Mr Men when i was little and when i saw this hoodie i'll admit alot of memories came flooding back! I spotted it while browsing Play.com and as it was heading towards winter at the time, decided to treat myself and buy it as i needed some warmer, comfier clothes.
The hoodie is basically a jumper with a hood, and is a light to medium blue with a medium sized picture of little miss sunshine on it standing infront of a rainbow, with pink, bold writing underneath saying 'little miss sunsine.' It sounds like a bit of a fashion distaster, doesn't it? I wasn't totally keen on the clashing, bright colour scheme at first but the more i looked, the cuter i found it! The hoodie does indeed have a hood, but doesn't have any pockets unlike most hoodies, which is a pain when you go to slip something into your pocket only to find there isn't one!
Material wise, the hoodie is 100% cotton and nice and soft. It's definetly lightweight and not as thick as i thought it'd be. It isn't fleece lined or anything and like i said before, basically a jumper with a hood. It's not very long so isn't the type that can cover my bum when wearing leggings! I usually wear it with jeans as it's versatile or sometimes with hotpants if it's a chilly day but i want to show my legs off, and it keeps my top half insulated, lol.
The hoodie is a decent price at £17.99, as most good quality, logo'd hoodies like this for sale are usually around £20-£30.
Sizing is a bit iffy and isn't in womens sizes, but in mens sizes (even though it's definetly a womens hoodie!) Sizes available are S, M, L, XL. I got an M which is oversized on me slightly, and i'm a size 8. I'd say an XL would be 18-20 and an S 6-8.
Overall i love it. It's good quality, washes well, is cosey and versatile aswell as been really cute and unique.
I bought this hoodie a year ago after spotting it on a website and straight away it caught my eye. I love the little miss brands and also the mr men brands so when I saw this I was so happy. I didn't buy it straight away as I thought I would find it in the shops...I was wrong. I then ordered it asap from the internent and waited 3 days for it to arrive. When it did i wasn't disappointed. It is quite thin so perfect for a cool summers evening or as a layer under your jacket for winter. I was getting asked where I had bought it from in the street which made me really quite sumg that i had found such a good jumper that other people were looking at and going i want that. It washed really well and to this day it hasnt lost its colour and the print hasnt faded either.
I recently ought this for my sister as a christmas present and she loved it. I got it from Play.com for £17.99. Im thinking of getting myself one too. Its not too thick which is good as you can still wear it when it strats to warm up a little bit and also wear a jumper underneath when its a bit chilly.
The picture is like silky and crackly, old looking, but that makes it look special and different and does not come off in the wash. The hoodie itself does not bobble or lose shape. The colour is a lovely lively blue, but not too bright. It's a strong colour, so isn't going to fade at all. I only found it in the one colour though, i would have liked it in a different colour myself so me and my sister dont get confused, but i will keeping looking out for one.
It looks very trendy with a nice pair of jeans.
It's that time of the year where stores stock up on their summer close, and, with that comes the clear out of any large warm clothes. Why they bother I do not know, because we never get more than 1 week of sun! Take a quick look around the internet and you'll find nearly every clothes store has a massive summer sale on.
In need of some new clothes I've rifled through the online sales of jeans, tee's and hoodies, ordering one or two items from different stores. I was delighted however, to come across this hoodie on play.com. Now for those of you that don't know, play.com are an online only outlet who sell dvd's, cd's, games, gifts and clothes. Although to most people, it is not the first place you'd go looking to re-stock your wardrobe. They tend to sell band's/television clothes more than anything else.
I was on the lookout for a new hoodie so I thought that as this was reduced to £9.99 it'd definitely be worth the buy, and if it didn't turn out to be great then I wasn't losing much. Looking at the reviews of the item on play.com a few people had said it was much thinner and more fitted than they had expected, and there were recommendations that the sizing guide was wrong, and you should take a size up.
I am a size 12, which play.com would say is a medium in this hoodie. I decided to give play.com the benefit of the doubt seeing as I've not known them to get anything wrong when dealing with them before. I am glad I did so because the medium is exactly the fit I was looking for. The hoodie is loose but not too baggy and comes right down over my hips. It fits pefectly to sit just below my hips but I can pull it down further to cover my bum comfortably!
When I opened the package up I was intrigued as to the quality of the top as the reviews had been contradictory on the site. I have to say that I could not have hoped for a better quality hoodie. Yes, it is not a big thick fleeced hoodie, but it is a warm, 100% cotton, comfortable hoodie. It's great to wear over a t-shirt to keep you warm in the cold British weather, but I've also found that you can wear it on it's own when it's 'inbetween' weather.
The design of the hoodie is fantastic, with the iron on detail one of the best I've seen. It's nice and bright, and guaranteed to make people smile. The blue colour of the hoodie is a nice shade.
The hood is the same quality as the rest of the hoodie and will keep you nice and warm. Although, as with most new hooded items, when you first use it the hood looks a bit pointed! I think this tends to happend because the hood has been folded when packaged, and it'll be okay after a few uses.
