Nothing really beats going into a store and trying things on for yourself, but sometimes time doesn’t allow for this, and sometimes, quite frankly, we just can’t be bothered to face the world. Online shopping can be really hit-and-miss and finding a new website to make an order from can be a challenge. Thankfully, the most recent online order I received from Femme Luxe Finery was all hit and no miss, which, for me, is a grand achievement. Being 5’8 and slim sometimes has it’s downfalls, and finding clothes that fit correctly is one of them!
The first item I found was this gorgeous crop top. Now, I love crop tops, I wear them all the time, but sometimes they’re just that little bit too cropped. I’m sure you’ve all been there, tried one on and it’s just a teensy millimetre away from being indecent? Well I can confirm that this crop top was actually the perfect length. Not too short, and not full length, just as it should be! The contrasting black text against the white tee works really well, and who can honestly resist a slogan tee?!

I tend to like to buy things and know what i’m going to wear them with. I’m usually a plain trouser girl, but as soon as I saw this pair I knew they’d be perfect to pair with the crop top. The contrasting black with white piping matches, in an opposing way, to the tee. I also love that they have the floaty effect of a skirt, but the practicality of a trouser. The smart/casual vibe is exactly what I was going for with this outfit and I think I definitely achieved it!
The Black With White Contrast Split Leg Trousers – Tori can be found here.
Finally, I decided to opt for something completely out of my comfort zone. I love a two piece, so I suppose it wasn’t so far removed, but I usually keep my tones quite muted. I don’t usually wear prints or out-there colours, things are usually fairly muted in my own colour palette. I figured, as they often say “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone“, that I may as well take a tiny step in that direction with my clothing!
The Green Contrast Two Piece Set – Tara can be found here.
I was really drawn to the linear pattern online and when it arrived I was glad that I took a chance on it. It fit like an actual dream and the leg length was perfect, which for flared trousers was a miracle! I paired it with a pair of trainers, as I wanted that slightly more casual vibe. As I said already, I love a two-piece anyway, but I think I’ll definitely be taking some more risks with my wardrobe as this one definitely paid off!
All of these items, and many more, can be found on https://www.femmeluxefinery.co.uk. Please let me know if you order any of these pieces, or anything else from the website, as I’d love to see how you style the items.
