It is normally Eps who gets caught by the shopping bug, but this week it got me too!
I have a trip away to Florida in June and when I was offered £5 off at Everything5pounds (check out eps post here for your £5 off) I just had to have a look and choose something. Of course one thing never happens so I chose 4 things. But at £5 each you can’t go wrong, right?! I am a pretty average size 10 with a bit of a flabby “mummy tummy” so will try to give you an idea of sizing.
My first item is my favourite. It is a lovely lightweight, summery dress (available here). The neckline is lovely, not too low cut and the length is just right for me. This will be an every day dress in the summer. I bought the 8-10 in this and there is loads of space so I would say size down if you are unsure.
The next dress (available here) is slightly smarter, maybe more of an evening dress. Perfect of a night out for a dinner and a show perhaps. The wrap effect of the dress means it hides my “mummy tummy”, which I hate and hangs beautifully. The material isn’t as light weight has the red dress above, and is a bit more clingy so wouldn’t be great for hot sticky climates.
I bought the 8-10 again and it is pretty tight fitting and clingy, so with this one I would suggest you size up.
I also chose a casual top, which I am not so sure about. It is a really lovely design, very pretty and the material is a nice qualit (available here). However, the design of the straps mean you cannot wear a normal bra, so you are down to strapless choices or going without, I find strapless so uncomfortable (if anyone has any recommendations I would be happy to hear) and hate going without, so I will have to wear it with a bra and deal with the straps showing.
Size-wise I got the 8-10 and it is very tight, almost too tight. If postage wasn’t so much in comparison to the item I would return it. I would certainly suggest getting a bigger size on this one.
My last item is so comfy! This eyelash knit cardigan is really soft and really fluffy, I absolutely love it (available here). It is going to be really useful for throwing in a bag as extra warmth in the evening, it won’t crease and looks lovely with a dress or over jeans. It is nice and long in the sleeves, I hate those which barely reach your wrists and you are forever pulling them down!
