REVIEW: FEMME LUXE CLOTHING*

[ADVERTISEMENT]

As you may know I've been following the Slimming World plan recently and am making a conscious effort to loose a bit of weight and slim down. With the new weightloss, it means new clothes and so I often find myself browsing online for some new pieces to add to my wardrobe. I was recently approached by the girls at Femme Luxe; a UK based online clothing store, and asked if I'd like to receive a few items to try out and I of course said yes!

            

I love online shopping and find it a lot more therapeutic than trailing around a messy store trying to find my correct size however when I've not shopped with an online brand before I am always conscious of the sizing and quality of the items.

My first impressions of the brand Femme Luxe is that their service was brilliant. My order was processed quickly and my items were dispatched and arrived within 3 working days. I decided to purchase one dress (which is a bit out of my comfort zone), a knitted jumper dress and two Khaki jumpers! I much prefer wearing slouchy comfy clothing during the colder months but also wanted to be brave and choose a dress I wouldn't normally buy!

Grey High Neck Bodycon Jumper Dress Esmelia | £16.99
The first item I chose was this grey high neck bodycon jumper dress. I love casual dresses like this and think they look really cute with tights and heeled boots. I often wear things like this for work too as I want to be comfortable, but still look professional at the same time (plus it's always SO cold in our offices so we need to wear layers!) My first impressions when receiving this was that I couldn't believe how small it looked. I chose a size M/L which is supposed to be a 12/14 as I didn't want it to cling too much but when I got it out the packaging it looked SO small! Once it's on it is definitely a lot stretchier however I'm tall (5 ft 9) so it's really short on me so I'd probably wear it over leggings to protect my modesty! I can't fault how soft it is though. I hate itchy jumpers so it's important for them to be soft on the skin and comfortable to wear. I like to pair this dress with camel long-line coat too or mix it up with an oversized denim jacket! Such a cute outfit!





I chose this oversized jumper because I literally wear jumpers all the time, especially in the winter time. I love khaki and think it suits my complexion when I have a bit of a tan! It wasn't the colour that drew me to this jumper though, it was the sleeves. They are almost like a batwing style and something a bit different from your every day jumper. I won't lie, when I opened up the package and saw the sleeves I was very unsure as to whether I'd like them as they are VERY wide however I think paired with some ripped jeans and white trainers it looks quite nice! I'm not a fan of the tighter polo neck style though. It felt quite suffocating around my neck!






As soon as I saw this hooded crop sweater, I instantly thought; 'that'd look great with black leggings as an airport outfit'. I'm not normally one that likes to plan and have an airport outfit, but I loved this jumper and will most definitely be wearing it on my next trip abroad! The jumper is really soft and so comfortable to wear. I got mine in a size M/L and it fits nicely although it's quite cropped on me so I'd definitely have to wear a top underneath too. I am 5 ft 9 though so I'm not really surprised it's a short crop! For £11.99 you literally can't go wrong. I love the style and will get a lot of wear our of this, especially when going to the gym! I absolutely love the colour and have worn it none stop since it arrived!! They also had similar jumpers and tracksuit sets in Pink and Black too! I feel like they could be part of my next order! So cute.






Black Belted Bodycon Midi Dress Angelica | £18.99
The final item I picked out was this black belted bodycon midi dress. This is very out my comfort zone, particularly because I am in the process of trying to loose weight at the moment and I don't feel very confident about wearing tight fitted clothing, but I knew that when I do loose the weight this will look amazing. You can't beat a LBD and this one stood out as it's different from the bog standard midi dresses out there. It's got a belted detail around the waist and puffy sleeves with an off the shoulder look (but it's versatile as you could wear it like a normal dress if you didn't like to show off your shoulders. It actually fits quite well surprisingly and sinches me in at the waist. It's so flattering and looks really nice paired with a leather jacket, black heels and silver jewellery. It's only £18.99 in the sale as well so such a bargain. I love that it covers my arms but looks elegant and sexy at the same time! This is by far my favourite pick!













Make sure you head over to https://femmeluxefinery.co.uk/ to get some really great affordable pieces! I am honestly impressed by the quality; it's comparable to Boohoo/Missguided and really quick delivery. There is also a huge sale on at the moment so you don't want to miss out! I would definitely purchase from them and loved my items. I can't wait to check out their spring summer pieces when they come out soon!

    1. Ohh I can't wait to see what you've picked! I was very pleasantly surprised, the only annoying thing was I was too tall for the grey jumper dress, I definitely couldn't wear that out as it kept riding up haha!
