My favourite item this time around was the Stone Knitted Balloon Sleeve Side Split Longline Midi Cardigan – Emmy. It’s super elegant because of the puff sleeves, neutral colour, and the knit being very thick which makes it look high quality even if it’s quite affordable. The fabric stays in place even if you move which is a characteristic of good quality fabrics. The cardigan is also long so it creates vertical lines, again another requirement your outfit must have if you want it to appear elegant. The fact it’s so thick means it makes it easy to keep warm. Wearing it with a belt would make it even more chic, so that’s a good styling idea.
VIVAIA is a women’s fashion brand that was made popular due to making sustainable shoes from water bottles. Now they also make handbags and apparel. They use recycled materials obtained from used plastic water bottles, turning them into spools of thread to knit the surface material for their shoes, creating a sustainable and classic look that will last for years to come. VIVAIA is promoted by my favourite bloggers / YouTubers so when they approached me for a product review I didn’t hesitate to say yes!
For this Femme Luxe haul, got a lot of cute items as usual! I chose black trousers, a beautiful light blue blazer, a snugly jumper and a faux leather blazer, all very classy and cute Femme Luxe items! I hope you are excited as I am about this haul.
It’s sometimes hard to find classy and elegant items in Femme Luxe, but you know, those who seek shall find. My favourite item of this haul was the black blazer: Black PU Faux Leather Long Sleeve Button Pocket Detail Blazer – Nell because black faux leather blazers are so in right now, I literally can’t stop wearing it. They just go and elevate any outfit, from jeans, to shorts, to a dress, to tailored trousers. The quality is pretty good, it doesn’t look cheap at all. The buttons are also covered in faux leather which makes them really nice.
I’ve become a fan of their famous shackets and this time I’ve acquired the jade coloured shacket: Sage Check Print Oversized Button Up Pocket Shacket – Isabella. A shacket is the mixture of a shirt and a jacket. If you pay attention to everyone on the street right now there’s shackets everywhere and Femme Luxe have had them for ages now, total pioneers!
It’s super comfy and versatile, and I love how it looks – I use it both to work and the gym, that’s what I love about shackets and they are even more in this year. I now have the shacket in three colours! Shackets are the go-to item for me so comfy and so warm as well. I have them in Jade, Pink & Lilac and I love them all although the jade is the easiest to style. You can dress them up or down depending the situation by changing from gym clothes to jeans and heels or office clothes. And the best bit is that you’ll never be cold. Great isn’t it?
