Over the past few months I have been lucky enough to have been involved in a few collaborations with Yours Clothing. I think this all stemmed from me winning the “Style XL Most Inspiring Blogger Award 2017” which came sponsored by Yours, and included a £100 gift voucher for me to use. Bonus!
Since then I get a regular email letting me know what is going on and also the opportunity to try a product every now and then.
About a month ago I had an email offering me the chance to review something. Time got away from us both as we tried to find a product that would work for both of us, that was available in my size. Coupled up with some annual leave, I wasn’t able to choose something straight away.
This actually worked in my favour, as when I sat down to have a good lo0k, I found three things that I really liked. When a company has been lovely enough to offer me something to review, I always try and give them two or three options so if there is an issue with stock, or if they have specific item they prefer me to review, we can get a suitable choice.
Most of the time I leave it up to the company to decide on what to send, and this is what happened with my latest package.
The very next day a parcel arrived at my home – Super speedy delivery.
I eagerly opened the parcel and saw deep purple lacy loveliness! I had been sent the Long Sleeved Lace Maxi Dress.
A stunning dark purple lace overdress, it had lace sleeves, an elasticated waist and a lovely deep V on the purple underdress. I was very eager to try it on, and had perfect hair accessories to go with it.
As I had cut my hair into a more vintage short bob, I was hoping that the right earrings would set it off perfectly.
Now to say I love this dress, is an understatement. It is so comfortable to wear, but looks amazingly stylish. It swishes around the legs and yet is so soft and light it makes a perfect dress for every occasion.
I decided to try this out for a photo session in the garden. I think the dress really works well with all the autumnal garden colours.
I paired it with a stunning hair corsage from my friend Janey, and a pair of old and really high heels from Matalan that actually belong to my daughter; come on now, you don’t really think I can walk in those?!?!
It is the twins 21st birthday next month and this will be a perfect dress to wear out for their birthday meal. In fact, I can already imagine what I am going to order…..
I would like to thank Yours Clothing for again working with me. I always struggle to choose a specific dress or outfit, as there is just so much to choose from and at great prices for every budget.
Now… where is that Menu?
