You’ll remember I previously collaborated with Femme Luxe, and I’ve been lucky enough to do so again!
Continuing in the vein of getting out of my comfort zone and choosing clothes which I wouldn’t normally go for has been really positive for my confidence. I’m noticing that I’m choosing things I’d never have even looked at before because I feel better about myself. Perhaps some of that is my consistent, healthy lifestyle I’ve written about here, but having more of a choice over different shapes and styles of clothing makes a difference.
Here’s what I chose:
“Take it off the shoulder this season and make a serious fashion statement in the Dark Blue Denim Bardot Top. Featuring a gathered front and puff sleeve, this bardot top is a summer essential!”
I wore this top with a plain black skirt and wedges on a night out in Cyprus, unfortunately didn’t take any pictures! It looks great but I didn’t wear a bra with it and to be honest I would have sized down if I could have (I chose size 12 but ran out of time to return). It is a really unique shape and something I’ll return to.
“Get the cutest look in our Black Polka Dot Ruched Puff Sleeve Dress. In elegant long sleeves and a cute print we know you’ll love this mini dress.”
Hmmm, not my favourite I have to say. The model on the website looks banging, but I ended up looking a bit like a spotty sausage. I got a medium (apparently 10/12) – but this size was so tight on my boobs it just wouldn’t have been possible to wear it out.
There is some funny sizing on Femme Luxe so I’d just be aware. For example, the medium in this dress was 10/12, but a large on another item of clothing would be 12/14 and an M would be 8/10. I try to aim for size 10 where possible, but when the sizing isn’t consistent, you will get some ‘misses’ like this!
Sorry, I can’t find it on the website now (I’ve linked to other black body cons from Femme Luxe, but you WILL have seen this dress on Insta. Again, I wore it in Cyprus on a date night and I couldn’t believe how it made my body look. It isn’t a stretch material but it pulled me in in all the right places, and somehow made my girls look two or three sizes bigger too? Magical. 10/10 would wear again.
Looking forward to see what Autumn brings from Femme Luxe! You can visit the Femme Luxe website here.
