It’s been a while since I did a post like this and I’m so bloody excited as I received my first ever fashion related blogger parcel which was kindly gifted to me by Tobi– they’re an American online fashion boutique, with a huge range of on-trend, stylish items, so I’m here today to give you some feedback/ thoughts on them as a company and their products. As you can see from the photo below, I was absolutely over the moon that I’d finally been asked to work on something for a pretty big brand!
I was asked to select seven items from their wide range of products and from my seven selections, they would send me three to keep. I chose mainly winter warmers as I was lacking in the jumper department of my wardrobe and decided to go a bit more colourful than I would do normally – if you’ve been reading some of my recent posts you’ll know that I’m slightly (okay REALLY) obsessed with everything mustard coloured, so it was only fitting that one of my picks be in this colour.
I’m not going to lie, as soon as I opened this I was squealing with joy – the colour is beautiful (obviously), but the knit is super soft, thick and cosy, but best of all it isn’t itchy at all! There’s nothing worse than finding a dreamy jumper which looks amazing on the website, getting it home and finding out that it’s itchy AF, like you want to peel the skin off of your body just to make it stop!
I’m planning on wearing this with some skinny jeans (blue or black will work!), a black beanie hat similar to this one from New Look and my go-to staple black Doc Marten boots.
Next up is this beautiful red wine/maroon/burgundy (whatever you want to call it) coloured jumper with lace up detailing on the sleeves. Again, this was another win on the colour, it’s not itchy at all, is incredibly thick and warm – bar the lace up section, but we can’t expect the open parts to keep warm, because that’s silly.
I really loved the lace up detailing on this, especially so as it wasn’t just a standard lace, the lace up section was all knitted – one of the main reasons I was drawn to it in the first place! This will look amazing with the same combo as I suggested for the last jumper, but could also look cute with a black fitted skirt, some tights and my DM’s (because they’re life).
I really love the print of this skirt and how is hangs well, but I’m not overly keen on how I’ve styled it for this photo – it looks just a bit…MEH. However, I’m planning on pairing it with a crisp white shirt, some black tights and my DM’s for winter, then in the summer, I can rock it with again a crisp white blouse, some cute tan coloured sandals and my staple Michael Kors bag – WINNNER!
I’d also like to flag that it was only when I started to write and edit this post that I realised I wearing this wrong and the buttons should be on the side and not in the middle of the skirt (FASHION FAUX PAS GABRIELLE!)
I loved everything that I received, not just because it was gifted, but because the clothes were very well made and to a great quality. They’ve got a huge variety of clothing available which is not only stylish, but quality too.
I hope you enjoyed this post and please let me know what you thought in the comments below – I was so excited to share this with you all and hope you’ve been able to find a new online store for all of your fashion needs!
