The other day I was talking about some clothes I bought recently, all the clothing sales (online and offline) that were popping up everywhere, and how I was wincing from the pain the temptation was causing me.
Well, behold, here’s another sale to get excited (or scared) about…
I was given a special opportunity to pop over to the site… and choose a few items to review!
First up, where do I start? Everything was completely drool worthy.
I looked at my own wardrobe and knew that I had lots of basics and classic pieces. So I was looking for something that made a bit of a statement.
I loved the look of this black and white Helmut Lang Maxi Skirt. I thought both the cut and the print were very cool. Suffice to say, in real life, it was very cool indeed.
Will it sound tragic if I said my heart skipped a beat when I put it on? Oh well, it’s been said. Don’t judge me. I think I just found my perfect skirt.
The print is just gorgeous. It looks dark and edgy, almost like an xray of bones. But then you look again and it looks like tropical, black and white palm leaves.
It’s made from soft, sheer jersey. It has two layers that wrap over each other on the side into a cool ruche. And I love the split! It’s like a mini skirt, with an asymmetric hem.
The second item I chose was this ACNE Snakeprint Dress. It’s a racer back dress with some wide pleats at the front.
It’s such a versatile dress. It can be worn to work, to an evening function, or worn casually.
As you can see, I even tucked into some jeans, and it worked as a top. It was really lovely.
And lastly, I chose an item that was very (very!) affordable, yet versatile. This ACNE Tube Dress is really one huge stretchy tube.
It can be worn as a long maxi dress, and you can probably scrunch it up and make it a mid or mini dress. But I suspect it is most useful as a slip, worn under drapey layers. As the ACNE collection contains a lot of billowy sheer dresses.
So yes, I did have a lot of fun choosing, receiving, styling, wearing and reviewing the clothes, but alas I had to return them.
I also made a list of other items I had my heart set on. Enjoy!
And happy shopping!
