I absolutely love fashionable clothing. Although it`s not often I am able to wear it being a mom chancing a two year old, I still enjoy it. I was super lucky to have teamed up with Lulu`s
to try out a few of their products for a review as well as offer one of you lucky mommies a chance to win a dress off their site of your choice!
has absolutely some of the most gorgeous pieces of clothing I`ve seen. They have some of the most beautiful dresses! Some are casual some are semi formal. I love them all! In fact, it`s honestly hard for me to even give you a favorite! I was sent the Aqua Vitae Strapless Dress
(in pink), Angeles Ocean Black Lace & Suede Ankle Boots
and the Positively Moxie Black Sequined Handbag
by Melie Bianco. I love absolutely EVERY piece I received! My package arrived in excellent condition. Each item was individually wrapped to ensure it didn`t get damaged along the way.
First thing I tried on was the dress of course! It fit perfectly! Being a bit smaller in the upper area, it`s hard for me to find a strapless dress that fits me good and stays on without having to use a ton of safety pins. This dress fit perfectly and quite comfortably too might I add. I love how it`s semi-formal look with the beautiful lacy layers! They just really help the dress flow I think. You have the top that fits snug on you, so the layers just really bring out your body features and help show your real beauty! Great for going out with the girls for a night on the town or a semi-formal event. Plus, the back has a nice tie for it as well. The top of the dress is also already padded so no having to dig for that uncomfortable strapless bra! I juts love love LOVE this dress!
Next I tried on the boots. Now normally, I probably wouldn`t have just picked these up in the store to be quite honest, but I`m glad I got them now. They have a Victorian era design with the look of the 21st century. The heel is 4" and the side of the boot has a 2" zipper. The little buckles on the side make such a nice little extra something on the boots. They just help bring them out a bit more in my opinion.Â I do notice these shoes run just SLIGHTLY larger than your regular size. I`m between a 5.5-6 in shoes depending on the shoe itself. So I`d have done a bit better with a 5.5, but how I intend to wear them (with socks and jeans mostly) they fit fine. If you were looking to go without socks or thin socks, go with about a half size smaller than normal. I was very pleased that Lulu`s was more than willing to let me exchange my shoes out though if they were a problem!
And last, but certainly not least my beautiful sequin handbag! This I started to actually bring in with me to work. I`ve gotten quite a few compliments on it and of course I have to tell them where I got it from! The bag is much nicer in person than shown on their site. I love the 17" thick gunmetal handles on it! It makes the purse more unique. The bag itself measures approximately 18" wide, 12" tall and 4.5" deep. The inside has a beautiful signature satin lining.Â The bag itself has a main zipper then on the inside there`s a small side zip compartment. There`s also 2 small pockets to hold maybe a phone, ID or credit card. Something of that nature. The purse fits comfortably on my shoulder for use. I love that I can use it on a daily basis. The sequin make it shine and stand out, but in a sophisticated manner, not an over doing it way.
My overall experience with Lulus was superb!Â Their customer service was EXCELLENT and super friendly. If you have to return an item, they have no problems with that as long as it`s within 30 days of your ship date. Their products are all very high quality and worth every dollar! Their shipping process was really fast from after I placed my order and my packages were well packed. Needless to say I`m very pleased and am a proud customer of Lulus and intend to be a returning customer as well in the future!
