Firstly, a quick disclaimer, when taking these photos it was EXTREMELY windy…and I didn’t wear shorts under my dress. Let’s continue with the post.
This jumpsuit was one of my favorite things that came in the BOOHOO order. However, the quality was far from it. As soon as I had tried this on I noticed that there was already a hole in the bum! The fabric was very comfortable and lightweight, but unfortunately just not stitched together well, which is something that I often notice with BOOHOO purchases.
I really like the pocket details and the frilling around the sleeves and ankles. However, would I recommend this jumpsuit? No. Even for a measly £16, the quality is really not hitting the mark. (Also, how red does my hair look in these pictures!? I am definitely a fan of red hair, but not on myself. Safe to say I got it dyed straight after editing these!)
In terms of the sunglasses, and the earrings – they are a massive hit with me! Loving the 60s inspired, huge pink frames at the minute!

Another V cheap purchase from BOOHOO, however, again, just not hitting the quality that I would expect from ANY clothing brand, no matter how cheap! The dress came extremely creased, which I wasn’t too mad about. However, the stitching was poor and it looked like a cheap purchase. Something that I would not recommend, and would not be tempted to wear.
It can be disappointing when something looks completely different on the website…but hey ho, that’s the risk you take with online shopping.
