Everything 5 Pounds Collaboration - Pt 2




Hello lovelies,

Continuing onto my second piece, that I was kindly gifted by affordable fashion brand, Everything 5 Pounds is this gorgeous black bodycon peplum skirt (in size 8).

When looking on their website, I decided on this skirt for the sheer fact that is was a sexy yet fun piece that I could see fitting seamlessly into my wardrobe, on days when I want to change for dresses. And honestly, this skirt is in an uber comfortable stretchy material, that is thick enough to smooth over your potential lumps and bump - without making you feel restricted or corseted in.

For both looks, I shots them in what seemed like the hottest summer day in London and my verdict is that the skirt is easy to wear in any weather; paired with high stilettos or feminine flats. Whereas the dress in the previous post is a little thinker but would be ideal for tights and boots weather.

I have to give a big thank you to Everything 5 Pounds for gifting me the two pieces and Nicola Harvey for photographs. 

Thanks for reading lovelies,
Lizzie

Everything 5 Pounds Collaboration - Pt 1



Hello lovelies,

Since discovering Everything 5 Pound I have been obsessed. Not just because of the price (as I favour quality and style, over quantity) but because I am certain, after endlessly looking through various pages, I am certain that I WILL find a hidden gem.

Hence why, I jumped at the chance to collaborate with them, by review two of their ultra feminine pieces. I decided to choose the black bodycon peplum-hem skirt, as admittedly I have never owned such a pretty skirt and this adorable geometric dress.




My first choice was this gorgeous multi-coloured shift dress because it reminded of something that a boho babe would wear in the 70s, with the fusion of the Indian and African inspired geometric colours and patterns.

Just to note, this dress is a little thick in fabric, so it is ideal for the trans-seasonal period of autumn or spring (and not for the summer, when I shot this look ha!).  Though the fabric is a positive, as I feel extremely comfortable in it and I love the zip-front detailing, adding an extra touch to an effortless piece.
