Katch Me if you can!

Well well well. We have another month of lockdown ahead of us. So while we’re all at home again we might as well make ourselves comfy and cute at the same time. My top tip – loungewear! Imagine my joy when online fashion brand Katch Me reached out to me and asked if I fancied trying some of their cute and comfy clothes out.

I hadn’t heard of Katch Me before but I’m always excited to hear about new brands and after a little browse of their website I was surprised that I hadn’t heard of them.

Anyway, the first thing I chose to try on was this grey oversized sweater dress which, not gonna lie, is probably going to be my uniform for the next 6 months! It’s like my favourite hoody but long enough to cover my bum so I can wear it with leggings without feeling self conscious. I absolutely love it.

Also the hood is perfect for if it starts raining or you know, “go away don’t talk to me I’m social distancing” haha! Also, might I add that this is loungewear I am still happy to leave the house in – as evidenced by my photos. It looks like clothes rather than pyjamas so it’s a big win in my books!

As it’s getting quite cold now I also chose this super sweet pink double pocket teddy trucker jacket. This particular trucker jacket comes in various colours but I chose pink because
a) its my favourite and
b) who doesn’t want to look like candyfloss?!

Katch Me - pink trucker jacket

Katch Me have quite the assortment of coats and jackets but I particularly like this one because the ‘teddy’ material makes it snuggly, although the cropped element means its probably best worn in Autumn/Spring. In fact, the pretty pink colour would make it perfect for spring!

The bag ladies among you may have spotted the handsome number I was sporting on both of those photo op days. Well you’re in luck my friends because Katch Me sell bags too!

This bag is called the Alicia Brown Multiway Faux Leather Bag because the eagle eyes may have clocked the 2 different straps on it! How genius!

There’s the long brown shoulder strap for when you’re out shopping or running errands or whatever. And then there’s the short fluffy handle strap for when you’re out for dinner or drinks (when we’re allowed again!). Also I have to say the fluffy handle feels really nice in your hand.

Brown isn’t normally my colour, however, what I do appreciate about it is how versatile it is. This bag is the perfect size to fit the bare essentials in (phone, purse, keys, mask, anti-bac) without me needlessly filling it up with pens, receipts and other junk, so I have a feeling this bag will make it into my every day, every occasion arsenal.

So if you fancy treating yo’self go check out the Katch Me collections.

Fabulous Fashion

How’s your lockdown going? Bored yet? Well if you’re like me and have absolutely no intention of braving the shops just yet then you may have succumbed to a little online retail therapy. The girls at Femme Luxe Finery got in touch again and sent me some more clothes so I could conduct my own fashion shoot during lockdown hehe. So if you’re looking for a little fashion inspo keep scrolling…

Saving the World Slogan Print T-Shirt

Black 'Saving The World' Slogan Print T-Shirt

This slogan print t-shirt is channelling the ‘stay home, save lives’ message and Femme Luxe are kindly donating 100% of the profits from the sale of this t-shirt to the NHS. I may look silly but I just couldn’t get the idea out of my head so decided to wear a sarong as a cape and traipse off to the fields behind my house for a little photoshoot. Well, if you’re gonna wear a t-shirt with ‘Saving the World’ written on it, you gotta look the part right? I teamed it with black leggings and chunky black boots for a slightly dressed down rock chick vibe.

Wine One Shoulder Ruched Slinky Midi Dress

Femme Luxe Wine One Shoulder Ruched Slinky Midi Dress

You know I love a dress, especially a red one. Well, this beaut is just like the black one from my first Femme Luxe haul but it’s a rich red wine colour. If there’s one thing that Femme Luxe Finery do well it’s dresses, particularly their slinky midi dresses – this one actually comes in 9 different colours and is so flattering. I am looking forward to wearing this out when we’re allowed to have parties again!

Sage Mesh Overlay Long Sleeve Mini Dress

Sage Mesh Overlay Long Sleeve Mini Dress

This little number is a bit different for me. Its a tight fitting mini dress in a gorgeous sage green colour. I’m not normally a huge fan of green clothing but sage is such a pretty colour! The sleeves are a delicate mesh material which add something a little different to this outfit. This would look great with a summer tan, so I best get working on that one!

Rose Short Sleeve Boxy Loungewear Set

Rose Short Sleeve Boxy Loungewear Set

Last but not least is this loungewear set which is a pretty blush pink and has a slightly cropped length in leg and a boxy shaped body. This is an ideal outfit for when you can’t go out out (hello covid-19!) so you can look and feel a little more presentable than if you were just lounging about in your PJs. I’m a big fan of a loungewear set as it allows me to feel comfortable without looking completely scruffy.

Go check out Femme Luxe for all the latest in fashion for staying in and going out!

Fashion blogging for Femme Luxe

Hiya! Me again! Yeah I’ve been pretty hopeless with the blogging and stuff, believe me I’ve had ALOT going on in my personal life. But while I’m not travelling for one reason or another I am dipping my shiny pink toes into a little fashion blogging.

Those lovely ladies over at Femme Luxe Finery have sent me some more threads so I’m here to do another fashion haul type post with some more interesting photos that aren’t just me posing awkwardly in my back garden!

Red One Shoulder Slinky Midi Dress – Dylan

Red one shoulder slinky midi dress

Ok so now I’m beginning to realise that after my previous two collaborations with Femme Luxe that I may have a thing for red dresses. This one I wore to a masquerade party because it compliments the mask I already owned perfectly! This dress is a similar fit and material to the black one I received in my first haul. If there’s one thing Femme Luxe do well it’s dresses and I’ve already got my eye on a sparkly silver number!

Light Wash Denim Button Down Dress – Perry

Light wash button down denim dress

Another dress. This denim dress offers more of a casual day time look than the slinky number above. Who doesn’t love a bit of denim?! It goes with everything! I found this dress to be a little on the short side for my liking so I teamed it up with a black leggings as well as a black long sleeve top and some boots.

Nothing To Wear Slogan Top

Nothing to wear slogan top

Nothing to wear. Funny slogan to sport when Femme Luxe are sending me stuff to wear! But you know how it is girls, you can have a bursting wardrobe but still have nothing suitable that you want to wear! I love to wear tops with something a little quirky about them. This particular top is available in black and white. Normally I’d go for black because white is bound to see me throw spaghetti bolognese down it or something but I thought I’d be brave and change it up for this little white number.

What’s your favourite piece? Do you like a bold colour? A classic wardrobe staple? Or are you a fan of monochrome? Leave me some love below x

Femme Luxe Finery Haul

As I had such a fabulous time before, Femme Luxe asked me if I fancied collaborating again. And did I? You bet I did! They’ve added a whole host of new outfits to their website so I picked a few little numbers to try on.

Navy Rolled Sleeves Shirt Dress – Noa

Navy Rolled Sleeves Shirt Dress - Noa Navy Rolled Sleeves Shirt Dress - Noa

By far my favourite piece of clothing was this Navy rolled sleeves shirt dress which is so versatile! I’ve worn it to work, a meeting and for a nice meal out but there are plenty of other occasions where this outfit would suit. Sleeves can be worn rolled up or down and it comes with a little sash so you can cinch in the waist. I’ve chosen to team mine with a pair of leggings and some simple black shoes. I feel so chic in this shirt dress… and chic is not normally a word I would use to describe myself. Plus navy is not normally my colour but I think I’m now a convert!

Black Slinky Long Sleeve Off the Shoulder Belted Jumpsuit – Nina

Black Slinky Long Sleeve Off the Shoulder Belted Jumpsuit - Nina

Having never worn a jumpsuit before I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this one, however I was pleasantly surprised! I love that this one has a little off the shoulder sass to it so I feel more like Sandy from Grease and less like a contestant off the Crystal Maze. This would probably look hot with any colour heel but I went for a pop of blue so tell me about it stud!

Dusky Pink With White Stripe Lounge Wear Set – Lexi

Loungewear set

I adore the other loungewear set I got from Femme Luxe Finery so I thought I’d try another. I must admit to being a little disappointed with the colour. On the website it looks dusky pink and even in my photo its pink however in real life its much more a darker orangey-pink tone than a pretty dusky pink. However the fit is fine and comes with a little hoody. Sadly I don’t have the abs that I used to but as its loungewear I think I can get away with it!

Red One Shoulder Midi Dress

Red One Shoulder Midi Dress

Move over the LBD because there’s just something about a little red dress isn’t there? Such a sexy colour, not that I look particularly sexy posing awkwardly in my garden but there you go. Femme Luxe are known for their vast array of dresses¬†but I chose this one because 1. It’s red and 2. I love a little one shoulder number. Team it with some red lippy and you’re good to go!

Feeling fine in Femme Luxe Finery

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

Femme Luxe Finery Rose Fluffy Long Sleeve Crop Jumper

I do love a fluffy jumper and this top 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

Femme Luxe Finery Red Long Sleeve Bodycon DressFemme Luxe Finery Red Bodycon Dress

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

Femme Luxe Finery Black and White Loungewear Set

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

Femme Luxe Finery Black One Shoulder Ruched Midi Dress Femme Luxe Finery Black One Shoulder Ruched Midi Dress

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!

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.

What do you think of my haul? You can shop the items here.
