Reviewed – Mia Roses Foil skirt from Boohoo

First of all, I need to apologise for the quality of the photographs I’m using today. They truly do not show the fabulous gold foil of this skirt at it’s best. Unfortunately, in daylight the flash refused to work, so the pictures are a little dark. But trust me, this skirt shimmers with the gold foil effect and is really lovely.

This is the third of my reviews of the new Boohoo plus size range. Boohoo, as I mentioned in previous reviews, now has a great range that runs from size 18 to 24. The range is full of really fine pieces, dresses, tops, some great knitwear and killer skirts. I chose a skirt for my third review, the Mia Roses foil skirt.

Mia Gold Roses Foil Skirt

This is a fabulous skirt. In a great stretchy jersey fabric, this is brilliant for Winter, both for daytime and evening wear. A thick, elasticated waistband makes this comfortable and also helps to achieve the hourglass figure. I love the fact that this is knee length, too many skirts seem to be too short for me and I spend time pulling them down towards the knees, but this is a good pencil skirt sitting just on the knee.

DSCN5936I went to see Strictly Come Dancing at the NIA on Sunday, and I wore this skirt teamed with a black lace top. I added a belt to the waistband which made the skirt and top look almost like a dress. Animal print shoes made a nice contrast with the black/beige colouring, whilst a favourite cashmere cardigan gave the arms a little bit of coverage (it was a rather cold day.). I thought this outfit was successful, I really enjoyed wearing it and the skirt was admired by both my sister and mom.

I was really impressed with this and I will definitely be checking out some of the other skirts from the Boohoo range.

Friday shopping focus

This Friday I’m bringing a mixed bag of fashion. The sales really are on their last legs, but this is often the best time to shop since the savings to be made are at their highest levels. You can pick up things that will slot straight into your winter wardrobe, and also buy investment pieces that you will be able to keep for a special occasion (or even for next year’s Christmas parties if you really like planning ahead).

You can also enjoy some of the newest drops in fashion land with the latest collections. It may be the grotty weather, with its cold and dark days, but I’m enjoying my fashion all things bright and beautiful at the moment. It somehow makes me think that spring is around the corner – which of course it isn’t, but it doesn’t hurt to think to brighter days. New Look and Liberty London seem to feel the same way, promoting a range of gorgeous glossy accessories and candy coloured clothing in their new ranges.

Time to shop until you drop.

Happy weekend.

Reviewed – Eden Wrap Front dress from Boohoo

Last month I got very excited when I wrote about the launch of the new plus size range from Boohoo.com. I was impressed by the images of fashion-forward looks with purse friendly price tags, offering something new and fresh to the plus size market place. I reviewed the beautiful Samantha lace top before Christmas after I was kindly sent a parcel of beautiful items from Boohoo (you can check out that review here). Now I can bring you my second review, this time of the Eden Wrap front dress.

The Eden dress is a classic faux wrap style in the most gorgeous cobalt blue. It is a great mixture of viscose and acrylic, which means it is soft and stretchy. It has a curved hemline that sexy without being overtly revealing, and has a gentle elastication to create a natural waistband.

I wore this dress on New Years Eve when I went for a meal with my family – the elastication was perfect for over-indulging! Although the dress does have that elasticated waistband, I decided to add a belt to further enhance this part of the dress. I also used the faux wrap front to add a gorgeous necklace in a similar shade of blue.

I was really impressed with this dress, the fit was great, and I liked the fact that the front wrap detail did not gape. I often find I need to add a vest under wrap dresses when they reveal too much cleavage, but this did not spill open or gape, and instead kept my bust in place. The same was true of the hemline, which didn’t flap open.

The range from Boohoo is proving to be really impressive and extremely wearable. There are a couple of new pieces I have my eye on which I’ve featured below.
