I almost dropped my biscuit in my tea when an email from Femme Luxe came through requesting to collaborate! I was absolutely buzzing to be offered the chance to review some of their clothing of my choice.
My typical day to day life is usually made up of me wearing joggers or as I call them ‘my sloppys’, dog walking, cleaning & constantly playing catch up with paper work and appointments. ‘Living the dream’ I hear you say, haha!
Being a Mum, 99% of my time and money gets spent on my children, I’m a bit of a giver, you could say! I’m still wearing clothes I bought years ago!! Every so often they come back in fashion…or at least that’s what I tell myself, ha!
This opportunity forced me to sit down and spend some time thinking about myself for a change. It’s only been up until very recently that I have started to go back out again and enjoy the nightlife with friends. Finding something to wear is way harder than I previously remember. My go to is usually black jeans, black boots and a nice top!
Femme Luxe has something for every gal, no matter what your style. Whether you’re the queen of casj dressing and love to keep it luxe n’ laidback, or you’re a dressy diva who brings the party everywhere she goes with a dreamy dress, they literally have got everyone covered!
Whilst I appreciate a beautiful lady wearing stunning clothing I always thought to myself ‘it’d never look that good on me’ I was very tactful in my choosing. Thinking about how, where and when I could possibly wear these outfits in the future. Because as you’re already aware I live far from a glam life!
The first item I chose was the Silver Glitter Clear Strap Wrap Mini Dress – Kayleigh in a size 12
It’s amazing what some airbrushing and good lightening can do! In all honesty I was surprised just how quick and easy it was to order and receive my items. The hardest part was choosing from the wide range of glitzy, glam and current clothing.
My parcel arrived promptly and the items were packaged really nicely and well protected. The quality of the products is good, as expected and the same as pictured online.
There is a rubber lining around the chest area to help hold this in place. Unfortunately for me my boobs are natural, plus I’m a Mum which pretty much means they hang however and whichever way they want to. My perfect cleavage days are well and truly over!
I love the transparent straps making it appear a strapless dress but instead having all the support to look good and feel confident you’re not going to pop out.
Some of the glitter on the dress came off but I thought this added an extra sparkle to your arms/ legs! I personally don’t like my arms or legs so I teamed this number up with tights and a leather jacket! I’m looking forward to wearing this out, out!
The next item I chose was – Black Iridescent Plunge Puff Sleeve Bodysuit – Samia in a size 12
This was well packaged and in my opinion quite a risky choice for me. Again this was a glittery piece with a very low plunge front, a rubber lining and a metal ‘v’ shape to help maintain both the support and look of the outfit.
The puffy sleeves are a nice feature, although not that puffy on my chunky arms! I love the fact that they’re shear, great quality!
It’s a very sexy thong style bodysuit that I paired up with black jeans (they’re meant to be black!) I think in the future I will wear with some leather trousers instead. It’s definitely an eye catcher of an outfit and I cannot wait to hit the town in this sexy number! Who knows I might meet the man of my dreams, ha!
I think that this luxe long sleeved jersey dress is my most fav out of the lot. It’s a total must have this season, with cold shoulder cut out detailing and a belted waist to help you flaunt your figure, this other wise loose fit dress is an essential.
I feel it can be worn on a night out glammed up with perspex heels for that must have glam luxe but also it could be teamed up with some classic canvas pumps for an every day look.
This hot mini dress is ideal for all occasions. It’s comfy, cute and a good quality material. You can choose to wear the belt as loosely to tightly as you wish. I worn cowboy boots for a cosy, low key feel.
The last item I ordered was – Black Hook Eye Corset Waist Cincher – Hannah in size 12
I love the fact you can wear this pretty much with anything and everything. I can squeeze this on to the last eyehooks but I will certainly enjoy taming my figure by gradually tightening the eyehooks to the next set.
The fabric is of a good quality and is a little stretchy with breathable material. It certainly hugs my figure! This can be worn underneath an outfit to show off a more defined figure or teamed up over a shirt dress to make a serious fashion statement.
Overall I feel the quality is great value for money and you certainly get what you see online. It’s clear (from my pictures) you don’t have to be a stick thin model to be able to wear these classics, fashionable and current pieces. There really is something for everyone!
I thoroughly enjoyed working this collaboration. Everything from easily ordering my items online to them turning up and me trying them on. I just can’t wait now to hit the town with the girls wearing them!
I really hope you enjoyed reading my blog, Please feel free to leave any comments or questions below and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for more from me!
I look forward to hopefully working with Femme Luxe again in the future…watch this space
