My Favourite Boyfriend Coats - Gamiss review

Hey girls! For all of you who are like me, you'd probably have a boyfriend who can't dress up for life. It's not their fault, guys are programmed to not know how to dress - at least most of the time! Anyway, I've decided to make a guide of where to get affordable and stylish clothing for your boyfriend. Yes, that's right - this post will feature coats that both you and your boyfriend can share!

I love wearing men's coats - they're slightly oversized but they always have the cleaner cuts, better materials and more simplistic designs. The women's coats are always too fluffy or cutesy for me. I recently bought a coat from Gamiss, one of my favourite shops that sells clothing for really decent prices. They've never let me down before, and I've bought several coats from them in the past.

I got this Lapel Longline Single Breasted Wool Coat for $37 - yes that's right, it's SUPER cheap and it came within 1-2 weeks if you choose the priority shipping method. I chose it because I thought my boyfriend would like the simplistic design. It's also wool, so it can be warm for autumn or winter. I love the longline design, because personally I think it makes guys look smarter and more sophisticated!

The shipping was super fast. I love how Gamiss has priority shipping methods which doesn't cost much. It came without customs taxes, and arrived in a nice ziplock bag.

As to the quality, it's quite amazing what you can get on Gamiss. The coat was well made, super well-sewn and had a lining and inner pockets. It was also true to size. I ordered a size XL and it was indeed just about right. It's so perfect for both girls and guys, and best of all you can always share this coat with your boyfriend if you feel bored with it!


I'm a Leggings Kinda Girl - a Calzitaly Review

Don't you ever have troubles deciding on what to wear for long-haul flights that look stylish, casual yet comfortable? I definitely struggle. I'm flying to Australia soon for a 2 month-long holiday (yes, it's long) and I was just thinking of what to wear for the airport. Then one of my friends suggested that I try leggings. Yes! leggings are definitely a lazy girl's best friend.

I want to introduce this cute leggings shop called Calzitaly, which sells a HUGE variety of leggings and tights. I discovered them because I wanted some leggings and tights, because they're comfortable, soft, stretchy and chic at the same time! Their products are all made in Italy, so that means that the quality is pretty much guaranteed. Their factory has been producing stockings for women since 1960, so they are constantly updating and designing new styles for the modern women.

The first pair I got was the Push Up Shaping Footless Tights- they have a push up and shaping effect, which lifts the butt and flattens the stomach for a slimming effect. They're quite stretchy and soft, and when I wear them I feel 5 pounds slimmer! I adore this pair of black leggings, and they're perfect with a little coat or crop top.

The next one I got was the Microdesign leggings. These are leggings with a texture, and they are striped and feels super interesting to touch. I love this pair best, as it flatters my figure and makes me look much slimmer again. All of their leggings give such a good shape to your legs!

The last one I got was a pair of leather-look leggings. They're faux leather, but they're a bit long for me. I'd recommend getting a smaller size which is shorter. It looks beautiful and sexy, and it's perfect for going out with the girls, or going crazy in the club!

I'm In Love With Coats - Sammydress Review

Sammydress is a super chic online shop that I've discovered for a long time but never tried.  They sell all kinds of cheap but amazingly styled dresses and tops that some of you lovely readers may be interested in. They kindly send me two coats to try their service out, and I have to say I'm rather impressed by the quality of my new trench coat and black fur coat that I received around 2 weeks after my order has been placed.

The first thing I got was a light coloured trench coat. It's super long and very good quality. It came with an extra button in case one comes off, but the overall material is great. It's made from a cotton and polyester mix, which means that it's comfortable, durable and soft. I love the colour of the coat, it's like Burberry but more stylish. I'd say this is great for something like a formal event or even just a going out coat!

I also got a black faux leather fur coat. This is inspired by the luxurious feel of coats in the high streets, but it only costs around $30 USD and they ship free worldwide! I'm so amazed at the quality of this piece. It's super thick and soft, like a little cozy bear, and I love the fact that it has a tie waist detail too. I think I'm in love with this coat. Pictures do it no justice!

Sammydress also has men's clothing, and I bought 2 coats for my boyfriend which hasn't arrived yet. They also do free shipping worldwide with no customs tax, which is great value for money. I can't believe I have had such a good experience from them!

Hey lovelies! One of my all time favourite shops Krisp Clothing, a super affordable shop based in England that sells high street styles for cheap prices has launched some awesome new items. I want to share with you what I got recently for this summer. 

The latest trendy bottoms for women are these high waisted tie waist trousers. Krisp Clothing sells these awesome trousers in khaki, pink, white, stone and more. They're absolutely gorgeous, especially paired with a black simple top. I've paired my pink trousers with a black lace top, and it looks so flattering on body shapes which are up and down, or frankly any shape for that matter.

Best Korean Online Shop Ever! Trying out Hotping Global !

Being a huge fan of Korean clothing and makeup myself, I've always wondered where on earth to buy high quality and affordable Korean clothing online. This is difficult, especially if you live in places like the US, UK or Europe where there really isn't any Korean-styled clothing available in the shops or online. I've always wanted to visit Gangnam or Seoul to do shopping, since it's crazily cheap and fashionable (or so I heard). 

But have no fear-  today I want to introduce you to a fantastic online Korean mall called Hotping, a super famous mall that has been selling Korean clothing to worldwide fashionistas. They have a MASSIVE range of Korean clothing, like trench coats, tie waist coats, denim jeans, magic pants and cute dresses. 

I've read many positive reviews of Hotping online, with some sites saying that they're the top place to do Korean shopping online. I'm so excited that I had to order 3 things that I've always wanted - two cute trench coats and a pair of Korean ripped jeans to match the look.

Clothing worn: 

The great thing about Hotping is that the shipping time was fast. It only took around 2 weeks to ship from Korea to the UK, which is quite reasonable. The quality of the items are also fantastic. Hotping prides itself on selling only clothing made in Korea, so it's authentic and totally genuine. It's almost like you can enjoy the shopping scene in Seoul without leaving your living room!

As you can see, the Tie Waist Long Coat was the first thing I tried on. It's utterly gorgeous. It's fully lined and made with soft cotton material. It's really breathable, light and warm. I can't really find trench coats like this in the UK, since the style is totally Korean and oversized. The tie waist coat looks fantastic with a short dress on the inside, or during a cool spring evening when you're out with your friends. I'm loving this coat to bits!

The second thing I got was a floppy Dark Beige trench coat. This never goes out of style, and is totally like a coat you'd see in a Korean drama like Descendants of the Sun! I'm so pleased with it, as it's fully lined and well made. I got lots of compliments!

The last thing was a pair of skinny ripped knee jeans. I'm so happy with this as you can't really go wrong with ripped jeans. The quality is fantastic. It's sturdy, super strong and stretchy, so it fits on my really nicely. It's also perfect with Korean trench coats like those ones I got!

I've become a K-pop lookalike now with my goods from Hotping! I'd highly recommend them!

Empowering Women with Sustainable Shoes - a Juta Shoes Review

Ethical and sustainable fashion have become more and more prominent in society. Not only can consumers help the needy and empower women through their purchases, but these handmade items are usually of better quality and use better materials than normal factory-produced goods. Today, I want to share a little about Juta Shoes, a brand that empowers local women in London through the making of up-cycled leather espadrilles.

First, a little about Juta Shoes- Juta Shoes is a social enterprise based in London, Tower Hamlets, where many local women are unemployed or underpaid. "Jute" means 'shoes' in Bengali, and each shoe's soles are made from jute, a high quality, tough material. Juta Shoes employ local women to manufacture the leather shoes using recycled leather, which would otherwise have gone to waste. This way, they support marginalised women who may otherwise have had a hard time finding employment, empowering them to work, support their families and earn profit from each shoe that sells.

The founders also host "Make Your Own Shoes" workshops where women are taught how to make Juta Shoes and learn valuable skills that can be useful for the future. All of their profits goes back into helping the women's trainings, workshops and supporting the community.

This being said, I received two pairs of Juta Shoes in my mail after browsing through their beautiful, minimalistic site. The order arrived really fast, within 3-4 days if you're in the UK. When I opened the parcel, I was absolutely delighted at the quality and look of the shoes. They come in many colors such as tan, brown, navy, red, silver and more, which means that there's something for everyone's taste.

jutashoes review, juta shoes blog review, juta shoes review, leather espadrilles ethical, leather espadrilles outfit, sustainable shoes uk jutashoes, jutashoes ethical shoes, london espadrilles

I chose a pair of brown espadrilles for myself in a UK 5.5 which fits perfectly. The soles are very well made, and feels excellent when it's on my feet. In fact, since the shoes are made from real leather, the whole shoe feels very breathable when I wear it. It's one of the best quality leather shoes that I've owned, and it seems very sturdy and firm when it's on. It's not at all tight or too loose, and looks very vintage and chic.

I also ordered a pair of navy men's espadrilles because the espadrilles are all unisex, and goes up to a size UK 11.5. It's a beautiful matte leather, which means that it isn't as shiny as the brown shoes. However, it's a beautiful navy tone, which matches with chinos or clothing well. This would make the perfect pair of shoes for men during the spring or summer months.

Overall, these are definitely some of the best ethical and sustainable shoes I've seen. The quality is fantastic, and the workmanship is top notch. In fact, the shoes are very affordable at £70 per pair, and of course there's no guilt involved as all the profits goes back into helping local women achieve their dreams.

Best Men's Tailored Shirts- an Honest Review of Modern Tailor

 My boyfriend is a funny guy (he's a potato) - he never has enough shirts that fit him properly! And since he's starting work really soon, I decided to get him the ultimate "guy's" present - a tailored shirt! For those of you struggling to get your boyfriend or husband a birthday present or a gift, why not try out Modern Tailor, the shop where I ordered my awesome new shirt from? They're a really cool shop which lets you customise shirts for both men and women, and lets you customise virtually ANYTHING on the shirt.

If you want something bright coloured, embroidered with your hubby's initials, and have the cuffs rounded with 2 buttons, they can get it done. I got mine using the standard shirt template, but I embroidered my boyfriend's initials on the sleeves. I also chose special pearl buttons, which turned out beautiful as you can see below.

modern tailor blog review, modern tailor honest review, modern tailor shirt review, modern tailor checkered shirt review, tailored shirt uk review, tailor shirt review blog, modern tailor experience

The great thing about Modern Tailor is that the shirt's really top quality. I got a cotton/ linen shirt that's blue, white and grey checkered in pattern. I thought this pattern would be slightly preppy and sophisticated, which is what I love to see in a man's style. Also, it fits perfectly on the body since you can enter tailored measurements. This way, the shirt won't be too big or too small.

I also love the quality of the material, It's almost the best quality shirt I've ordered, and I've tried lots of other tailor stores online. Some of them are cheap, and some aren't well made at all. Modern Tailor took a long time to make my order - nearly 1 month. But this means that the quality of the shirt is extra high. It's definitely an expensive looking shirt. 

The bad thing about their site is that you can't preview your designs, unlike other shops. This is the only bad thing I have to say about their shop. But I didn't have to worry about that, as the shirt turned out much better than I expected! 

Overall, it's definitely worth a shot. I'm extremely happy with my purchase, and this shirt looks SO good on camera! Go check them out! 

I'm Tired Of Granny Panties! An Ice Cool Fashion Review

My underwear drawer is a right mess. I've got some underwear with holes in them because they're so old, and I've got some underwear that are from my long-gone high school days. It's not something I tell everyone, but I thought I'd share an awesome shop that I recently stumbled upon called Ice Cool Fashion, which sells so many beautiful and cheap lingerie which are super stylish.

They're a shop that specialises in high quality apparel, so they only stock the best items in the market. They also sell clothing, such as dresses, jackets, coats, skirts, pants and literally everything you can possibly imagine. They have accessories and sports items as well. I've loved browsing on their site, because who doesn't love a bit of online shopping?

Best of all, they have clothing from sizes 6-18 and 10-24 in selected styles. This means that for plus sized girls, there's plenty of choice around no matter what shape you are!

Because of my drastically poor underwear situation, I decided to give them a try and ordered 3 bra / panty sets from their massive lingerie section. They're my favourite colors, and I thought I'd go a little wild and try out some lacey styles, as they have plenty of affordable bra sets that looked super cute and sophisticated. It's time for those old granny panties to be thrown out in the bin!

Aren't they lovely? The quality of these bra sets are really good- they're all padded and supported, which means that girls like me will feel great wearing these beautiful sets. The bottoms are also super matching and cute, and they're really well-made. I love the colors too. They have pink, nude, red and lots of different types of fabrics and patterns for you to choose from.

I'm really happy with my purchases. They arrived within 4-5 days, and are all pretty much perfect bra sets which sells for a decent price. Each pair costs around 14 pounds, which isn't much at all considering shops sell them for over twice the price!

Here's a little surprise- they gave a little gift to all you readers. Enter "Flo5" at checkout for 5% off!

Minimalistic style featuring Rosewholesale

I saw this lovely thin woollen sweater the other day on Rosewholesale, a famous online shop which has been around for a long time. I've never actually bought anything from it, but this gorgeous sweater is on my mind so I thought I'd try to order it, since it was super cheap (only $33). It arrived within 2 weeks to the UK, so I was quite happy about that. 

The best thing about this sweater is the quality- it's made from 100% wool so it's quite soft and warm. I liked the colour too, as it's not too pink and I am personally not a fan of bright pink. This dull pink is quite sweet and cute. I also liked the fit which was loose and flowy.

The only little thing about this sweater is that it smelled a bit strange when it first arrived. It wasn't strong but it was just a bit strange, so I washed it and the smell was instantly gone. I guess sometimes, ordering from Chinese shops has it's risks.

But overall, I'm still pretty happy with this sweater. What do you think?

My Massive Everything5pounds Haul !

My exams are FINALLY over and I'm feeling oh-so-blissful! It's like that feeling when you've tried your best (sort of, I wouldn't say I was perfect) and everything's over in a flash. I'm definitely not missing the library, but I'm feeling a little sad at graduating this year.

Nonetheless, one of the best things about studying in the UK is the budget online shops. Online shopping is a HUGE thing here, and you can get unbelievable clothing for the cheapest price ever. In fact, there's something called "ex cond" or "ex brand" shops which are super popular in the UK. One of these shops is Everything5pounds.com , where everything is 5 pounds and they have ex-branded, ex-high street items. This means that when the high street brand has leftover stock or need to get rid of their items, it goes to these shops. 

I got 4 items from their shop for a total of 20 pounds. Yes, it's only 20! The first thing I got was a denim trench coat because it looked really nice on the site. It turned out to be from a brand called 'Cherry Paris' which sells suede jackets to Forever21 and beyond. So I actually got a Forever21 jacket for 5 pounds! It looks beautiful on, kind of country chic and it fits perfectly!

Next I got a pair of white cropped jeans. They are 100% cotton and super soft, and probably sells at 3-4 times the price. It's quite loose but I had to size it down. It pairs well with nude coloured tops. I'm happy with this pair of trousers, although I have plenty of white trousers already!

Next I got something a bit interesting - a striped dress. It's super cute and good quality, and comes from a brand called Jaune Rouge, which is a Parisian fashion brand. The quality is fantastic, and it's super cute, though I wish it's a bit wider at the shoulders. But the material and colour is super cute! I'm going to pretend to be a French girl now!

Lastly, I got a pink turtleneck dress. This was a bit of a gamble as I don't usually wear jumper dresses as they are always too thin. This one was unbranded, but it was quite good quality and for the price, it's really nice. It's a bit different from the photos though, but I'm still pleased with it. It will look nice with a grey longline trench or cardigan!

Overall, I have to say i'm addicted to shopping with Everything5pounds. I've bought things from them ever since I came to the UK many years ago, so just when I started this blog. It's been a pleasure browsing from their site since everything's so cheap, and their site is really pretty.

They have new stuff added daily! Do check them out! How's my haul?

How To Style Sweaters - my Luxmix Review

Yes, spring is here, but it can only mean one thing- time for those cosy sweaters to come out of your wardrobe! I've been lucky enough to have discovered a really minimalistic, modern shop called Luxmix, which sells lots of sweaters, knits and modern apparel. Their style can be described by four words - simple, elegant, neutral and cozy. Yes, their clothing are all SUPER cozy and a bit slouchy, which is the perfect balance of chic and messy at the same time. 

I got this super cute Slouched Knitted Women Jumper - it's grey, a bit loose and super soft. It's made from pure mohair, which means that it feels as soft as a baby's skin. It's also quite light and airy, but very warm and can keep you all nice and cozy during the cool spring nights. The quality is amazing- their clothing are all on the mid-range end of things, and it's no surprise that the quality matches with what you pay for!

I've styled mine with a beige leather skort in the first outfit, and a pair of skinny ripped jeans on the second. It's always nice to style something neutral with blues or beiges, as these fit into the overall look very well. I particularly like the second outfit- it's something that I can imagine myself wearing on a nice spring or autumn evening on a balcony sipping wine!

I'm really excited to wear these outfits out to meet my friends, or hang out at my boyfriend's place because what screams "chic" than a slouchy, oversized jumper and jeans? It's something both guys and girls will love!

Luxmix also sells a variety of trousers, tops and knits - they have everything for the girl who loves something casual and cute, but not overly formalistic at the same time. Sometimes, simple and less is really the best way to go!
