I'm Loving... Pilot


All Pilot

   I'll put it out there - Pilot was a shop I had completely forgotten about, until now. Funnily enough X Factor was what sparked this post (quite sad really!). If you watch it, you'll know one of the groups, MK1. From day one I thought it was hilarious that they'd names themselves after a teen fashion store (I also wondered if they knew this - not very 'urban!'). But the other day I stated thinking about the other shops around at the time Mk One existed (yeah, this is starting to sound like an odd case of nostalgia, but hear me out). One of these shops was Pilot. I think I'm right in saying that Pilot appeared on a Mary Portas program maybe 2 years ago, but after that I hadn't heard much about them.  

   Out of curiosity, I googled the name. Pilotfashion.com popped up and so I clicked on it. I had a quick look through the website and unveiled some gems. Pilot still sells well priced, on trend products - I remember loving Pilot when I was about 11 because it was one of the 'cool' shops. (How funny is it that I could fit in size 6 clothing in those days and thought it was so cool to be buying from shops with 'grown up' sizes, yet today I'm desperately trying to fit into kids clothes!)

   So, here are some of my finds. I adore the dress - I've been hankering after a little red number for a couple of years now (yes, I know that seems ages, but I'm so fussy about the shade of red!) and this one is gorgeous! The coat is also lovely, I've just bought a black faux fur coat myself, but this one is equally as cosy looking! The snood is a perfect match for it! I'm not sure I could last more than 10 minutes in the heels, but they are beautiful.

Ontop of all this, I have a 10% discount code to share with you all, it's valid until the 30th November.
Enter: AWVC1121 at the checkout for 10% off at Pilot

   I'm not actually sure if Pilot still have stores, if they do then let me know! I've not bought anything from the site myself yet - have you?

  7. I still have a pilot store near me. Theres one at Dalton Park in the North East. Got to admit though, i find it rather overpriced for the quality of their stuff.
