When it gets to this time of year, I’m always looking for a little revamp, be it my skin care routine, a new hair cut or a few fabulous new pieces for my wardrobe! In fact, I’ve ticked all those boxes this year but it’s the new wardrobe that I want to talk about today.
I was recently contacted by women’s online clothing retailer Femme Luxe Finery to see if I would like to try on some of their clothes for size. I’ll be honest, I hadn’t heard of them before but I thought I could be onto the next big thing in online retail therapy here, so thought why not give them a whirl!
And you know what? I’m glad I did! I was pleasantly surprised. You never quite know what you’re going to get when you order online (speaking from past experience elsewhere) but I can honestly say I am feeling fine in Femme Luxe Finery!
So what little beauties did I get?
Rose Fluffy Long Sleeve Crop Jumper – Jada
I do love a fluffy jumper and this one is perfect for dressing up or down. I teamed it with a vest top of a similar colour and some ripped jeans – great for a sunny and surprisingly warm Saturday in February! I could quite easily dress this jumper up for the office and wear it with my high-waisted white pencil skirt and a pair of heels too – very versatile! The crop is a little shorter than what I would normally wear (let’s be honest, I don’t have the abs of a 19 year old anymore) but I didn’t feel uncomfortable in this jumper… plus it’s oh so soft!
Red Long Sleeve Bodycon Dress – Michelle
This bodycon dress is another great example of a piece of clothing that can be dressed up or down. I’m a big fan of a simple red dress and decided to wear it on a casual night out with a burgundy jacket and some leopard print boots. I also styled it with a black belt and black tights as the material is quite light which makes it a little too see-through to wear on its own. My husband approved of the outfit and I felt pretty good wearing it too! This is definitely the perfect number for a casual dinner date.
Black with White Stripe Off Shoulder Loungewear Set – Shani
I am all about comfort. Sometimes a little too much. I go to work in a pretty dress and heels and by the time my husband gets home I’m already on the sofa in my pyjamas or scruffiest ‘not leaving the house’ clothes. So why have I not got myself some attractive loungewear before?! This black and white loungewear set is not something I would necessarily have looked twice at in a shop as I’m not normally too keen on matchy matchy but it’s really comfortable and it still looks good! I reckon I’ll be wearing this one alot and might even venture to my yoga class in it too. Thumbs up!
Black One Shoulder Ruched Slinky Midi Dress – Savannah
Lastly is my favourite item from my Femme Luxe Finery haul – a black one shoulder ruched slinky midi dress. I feel super elegant and sexy in this – two words I would never in a million years use to describe myself! The dress is quite tight to put on but once it’s on it’s actually quite comfortable as the fabric has a bit of stretch to it. I am planning a big night out in the middle of March for a friend’s birthday and fully intend on wearing this dress then, teamed with a bit of red lippy and some shiny heels, I absolutely cannot wait! I’ll also hopefully get some better photos on the night too instead of these ones of me cringing and pretending to be a model/real fashion blogger where all my neighbours can see me prancing about haha!
Femme Luxe have quite a large selection of dresses on their website – casual and glam – so I will definitely be having a browse on there for future outfits for big nights out.
