Well it was a cold and bleak day in Ballina, but the same can’t be said for my trip to Black Pepper. From the moment l entered the store with my daughter Jo, the staff at Black Pepper could not have been more helpful.

I enjoyed a shopping spree as the Black Pepper blogger for May and I was lucky enough to try on a variety of great pieces from the range, at better value than usual now that their mid-year sales have started.

I had a wonderful morning at Black Pepper. My shopping trip today was a celebration marking my 7-kilo weight loss which I achieved by adopting a clean eating lifestyle.

Over the last three months, ever so slowly, I have begun to lose the weight I have gained over the years. I am by no means at my goal weight but I am getting there. For now though I have the beginnings of a new wardrobe, a wardrobe that can be added to over time as I mix and match pieces of the Black Pepper range of beautifully designed clothing.

If you’re in the market for a few new pieces to freshen up your wardrobe I would recommend you make a trip to your nearest Black Pepper store.

    • Hi Kathy, Pat here given that l have a limited budget and l can’t wear high heal shoes or boots due to having polio as a child, l would be appreciative of your feedback . What do you think l could wear with my black straight leg jeans and navy cord pants. So l don’t look so bad.

  2. The photo (above) def. doesn’t represent over 60 people – I think advertisers should be more realistic ……. not all of us are thin, blonde & beautiful

  3. One outfit is navy blue and the others are black. It wasn’t until l returned home that l realized all the clothes were dark .

  4. Thanks Lyn its nice to see a positive comment. When l went to try on the clothes l was quiet unwell, l have PTSD with severe depression and anxiety. While the service at the shop was outstanding l found it hard to find something l really liked in the top department. The pants l bought fit beautifully and are comfy as. A lot of the comments are less flattering and l understand what they are saying. What would you wear with jeans and flat shoes to make it not so Nana like. Even though l am one lol

  5. I think Black Pepper can suit anyone! Have worn the brand for many years. Thank you for the article.
