Adding A Touch Of Class To My Wardrobe


Since I gave birth to Ava, I have got into a rut of wearing the same type of outfit every day. One size 12 pair of Primark jeans that I managed to squeeze my clearly size 14 body into, a funky jumper (lately I am really into my orangey brown glittery one from H&M), and a beat-up pair of burgundy trainers. I mean, it is convenient. Practical. Doesn't take much thought. But it is also becoming mind-numbingly boring. Every time I log into Insta, I see bloggers killing the outfit game. They wear combinations of clothing items that I had never even considered but somehow really work. And it makes me inspired to try to be more daring in what I wear. I want to be one of those bloggers who wear leopard print jeans to Tesco just because. Or are courageous enough to wear blue lipstick just on a normal, every day basis.


So, when Cari's Closet got in touch, I jumped at the chance to collaborate with them. Their site is full of gorgeous dresses in every colour, style, length, and fabric you could imagine. I mean, they have serious princess dresses over there. After a lot of scrolling through their site, I eventually chose this 'Bella Cut Out Gown'*. I loved the colour and the cut out detail on the sides. Also I was interested to try out a maxi dress as I am very much a midi dress kinda girl.


When the dress arrived, I was very impressed. It came in a box. My wedding dress didn't even come in a box. I know, small minds small pleasures. When I opened it up, it was a lot more silky than it looks in the pictures on the website - and I love silky things. I felt like a 1940s film star. The length was a little long for me - which was expected as for my teensy 5"3 self - but I loved the high neckline as I feel like it makes the dress look really sophisticated. A pair of heels soon solved the length problem anyway.


Overall, I would highly recommend Cari's Closet - and not just because they sent me a super cute dress. Their website is well laid out, easy to use, and their dresses are actually gorgeous. If you are looking for bridesmaid dresses, a dress for a big event, or even a well-priced wedding dress, this is a great place to shop.

Here are my other top picks from their website that I am definitely looking for an excuse to buy (invite me to things!! Please!):
