Mesh dress from

This is part two of the reviews!

This post will be about the mesh dress, which you can find here for $9.33.

Here it is unworn, in a size M. This piece is actually a little different from the stock pictures. The sleeves are much shorter, and the overall dress length is shorter, too (so short that I feel more comfortable wearing it as a top rather than a dress). I'm sure that the model on the site is shorter than me (I'm 173cm), but I don't think that's the whole reason that this is so short. Other than that, it's a nice, well-made piece.

Here's how it looks worn:

Review: Luxemme

(Please note that although this is a sponsored review, all opinions are entirely my own.)
I was contacted by Luxemme, who offered me a product of my choice to review. 

Luxemme is an online fashion brand based in Manchester, UK. They take inspiration from and blend together Parisian and Manchester fashion, creating a classy and unique (yet still very wearable) look. 

The staff member I was in contact with was very friendly and helpful, and the product was dispatched and arrived quickly. 
It arrived in perfect condition in a sturdy, plastic envelope. 

I chose the Melba Tie Waist Jacket. Here's how it looks unworn:
It's well made with good quality material, and is true to the stock photos on the website. The fabric is quite light, making it perfect for spring and autumn (or English summers).

Here it is worn:
I really like how versatile this piece is. Here, I've gone for a simple, slightly gothic look, but I often wear it in a far more "normal" way for work (where I dress smart casual). 

In regards to sizing, this is a size 8, and it fits like you would expect a size 8 to, so no problems there.

I overall had a very positive experience dealing with Luxemme, and I'd definitely recommend them, so check out their site!

lol who does that

I like it though, so I don't mind.

Sailor uniform from

As promised, here's the first of my reviews of the products that sent me. Sorry it's a bit late! I've been super busy with work and organising my move to Japan (which will probably be next month!) lately.

The item I'm going to review today is the sailor fuku, which you can purchase here for just $10.39!

Here it is straight out of the packaging:
I like it a lot! The design is very cute, and it looks just like the stock photos on the site. It's well made and comfortable. The skirt material is quite thin, which means it can be slightly see-through in some lights, but with a skirt of this length I'd usually wear safety shorts anyway, so it's not a big deal. The price seems to have increased since I ordered it, but it's still very reasonable, and better quality than you would expect for the price. 

Here it is worn:

For those curious about sizing, this is the smallest size (asian size M) available, and my height is 5'8. The top is pretty stretchy, but the skirt's waistband isn't, so make sure to check the measurements on the site carefully. 

 The bow is attached by a safety pin, so you can remove it if you want.
