Back again with another online shopping review post for you all and today I’ll be reviewing LessThan10Pounds.com – now we all see what they’ve done there right?
I went back to my great friend Google (who is a blessing as well as a curse for someone that manically searches their symptoms – I wonder if I’ve been getting dizzy from my glasses, or an ear infection, or some of the many meds I’ve been prescribed for all of the random shit I’ve had going on over the last year. Pretty sure I’ve become a hypochondriac) to discover some new discount fashion stores I could review for you all, when I stumbled upon this site.
I had a mooch around, found quite a few bits I liked and ended up ordering four things, which with shipping came to just under £30 – not bad!
✅ Great priced items (all less than £10 😉 )
✅ Good variety of items and more sizes available in comparison to Black Betty
✅ Some clothing looked pretty well made on the site and confirmed on everything I clicked on that the labels would be cut out
✅ Various shipping options available, I spent £3.95 – not too bad!
✅ PayPal as a payment option (we’ve all established how this is deffo a must have for me – buyer protection!)
❌ The site was a little bit laggy when it came to selecting items (I was ordering from my phone so it might have been an issue for their mobile site)
I ordered on the Thursday evening and everything came by the Monday morning from Royal Mail – good start!
I was OVER THE MOON with this blazer, although the names on the labels were cut out, my Topshop intuition told me this was a gem from my beloved store! I love the blazers from Topshop – they’re so well crafted, made from great material and will always last well.
I thought this one looked a lot nicer on the website than it did in real life when I first took it out of the bag because it was quite wrinkled from being packaged up. Straight up, it wasn’t one of my favourites. The pockets weren’t stitched onto the inside so if you put your hands in there, you could visibly see them (if that makes ANY sense) and wasn’t doing my figure any favours. Not awful, but not amazing either.
I also decided to insert the last picture where Aaron was coming out of the shower with a towel on and I was trying to save his modesty – I’m so loving ❤️
This top is BEAUTIFUL and I’m obsessed with the neckline of it – I wanted to add some new shirts to my wardrobe for Spring but wanted something a little bit different to a standard shirt. Although the names on the labels have been cut out, my fashion savvy mind figured out it was a Primark special which really surprised me! Normally their shirts are cut on crappy bits of fabric so don’t always fall well (if you ever wondered why they seem to lose their shape after washing – they usually make the use of all the fabric they can and cut against the grain meaning it doesn’t sit nicely when sewn together) so pulling this out was a nice surprise!
When these arrived I wasn’t entirely happy that they weren’t completely “navy” and had a lighter thread weaved into the fabric giving them a more denim kind of look (they’re definitely not denim lol) but I do really like them on! Because I’m quite short, the stitching where the knee should be comes down quite low on me and when I first put them on I felt like I was trying to be some gangster bitch about to blow the crowd away with my lyrical genius (although this is definitely not me, my cousin Shaunna does have my phone number saved as “Lyrical MC” because I’m a mastermind when it comes to old school garage tracks – fun fact for you all 😉). But with the right adjusting and wiggling around a bit, I’ve managed to make them work – although I do think they’d look better on someone blessed with long legs! The quality of these is great, they’re not from a brand I know (Shana?!) but I really like them!
I was SO impressed by this store and would definitely recommend you having a mooch at what they’ve got – I ended up with a Topshop blazer which would have cost a lot more if I’d purchased full price when it was still available in store. It was definitely the winner for me – but some amazing quality clothes at a fraction of the price!
