Well hello there! How you’re all doing? Considering what is going on, I truly hope to find you all in good health! Ans guess what, it’s unboxing time!
Today I am bringing you something I’ve been wanting to shoot for a long time now. It’s been a couple of weeks since I got this delivered and advertised it on my IG page. Unfortunately this world situation delayed me a bit – I couldn’t ask anyone to help me shoot, and it’s been raining a lot here in Portugal, so I needed to improvise a bit. Also, I have been redecorating/changing room which took longer than expected.
And since I am working normally 5 days a week, I only have weekends left to do it all. Being pretty much everything closed (Ikea I miss you) it has been a challenge to get everything in place as I want it. I think it is getting there, and finally got some spare time over easter, so I decided I’d give it a go ans snap some photos on my new environment. Hope you like it!
Black Mesh Floral Crop Top – Bruno
Probably one of my fave pieces this time.
Ok so, lets start this unboxing properly, I really liked this one! You will notice that I got everything in black, which might seem a bit sad, but truth is, black is my happy color! 🙂
As I was saying, this was probably one of my fave pieces, I’d rate it a 7 out of 10. And the reason I ain’t going higher is simply because when you put it on the first time, it is a bit itchy. I washed it with a ton of softening in the meantime and must admit I haven’t wore it yet again.
But apart from that, it is very well sewn, the zipper on the back is perfect and it has a really good fit! I ordered a size 8 in case you’re wondering. One other thing I want to point out is the attention do the detail. As this piece has a very low cleavage, they put in a silicone band around the entire cup so it sticks to your body and just keeps everything from showing off!
String Tie Crop Top – Flaca
Not has happy as others.
As I continued unboxing things, it went a little south. This one I’d rate it a 5 out of 10. Although it fits very well, and the material on the main body is very soft, it seems to be slightly short. Lets just say it is a bit too cropped for me to wear it on a daily basis, and although it has some straps to tie around your belly, it doesn’t quite hide it all.
I couldn’t find a position where the straps would look very flattering so I just went with side ways photos, sorry about that. One more thing I noticed, is that the mesh part is also a bit itchy at first, a bit more then the floral one. I did the same an washed with pretty much a ton of softening so fingers crossed I’ll be able to use it comfortably. I also went for a size 8 on this one by the way.
Faux Leather Crop Top – Ula
Saved the best for last!
I must admit I always wanted to get one of this! My sister has an entire wardrobe of faux leather pieces, from skirts to trousers, tops, dresses, blouses, everything. And I always wondered how it would look on me so I decided to give a go to something simple for starters. I can only tell you I got very excited whilst unboxing this one!
I must say I am pretty much in love with this one! Whether you want to wear it plain, or with something underneath! (I did that the other day and put a zebra printed long sleeve mesh body under, I rocked that look). It is a good fit, and you don’t need to wear a bra if you don’t want to, I assure you nothing will come out. Also, straps are adjustable which is great! Length is about right as it hits your belly button. I’d rate this a 10 ou of 10!
Mesh Ruffle Top – Reyna
Literally in Love!
I know I opened the previous item with “saved the best for last” but I wasn’t just talking about that one crop top! I am absolutely in love with this ruffled one. It is so much fun, I think it was love at first sight the minute I opened the package. It is extremely confortable and cute!
No itchiness what so ever, the ruffles’ material is pure mesh, a bit grasp I must admit but not too much. But the top is fully lined with a very soft fabric which makes it very cozy to put on. It has some adjustable straps for better fit and then cute ruffled off shoulder straps that don’t get in the way of moving!
I haven’t yet wore it outside because, as said in the beggining, it’s been pouring water from the sky every single day since April began. I also want to point that although it has a low cleavage, it is well covered with a tie up lacy thing. Ultimately, I’d also rate this a 10 out of 10.
Overall, I am pretty happy with all I got! And I can definitely see myself wearing all of these once temperatures start getting warmer.
I am just a bit worried with one of the items, but I sure I’ll find a way!
Also, just to wrap it up, on my last unboxing post I said I would get some bottoms. As you can see I didn’t, because none of the available looked good for me. I just did a quick check on the website and there seems to be some cools new stuff. So who knows what I will get next!
I’m just gonna leave you with a couple more links of some bits that caught my eye, Who knows, I might be back soon with another unboxing time from Femme!
cheers, Cláudia, the PassionFruit
