Last week when doing this I stumbled across a new site called Poppy Lux. Although they have a rather small collection, the clothes are beautiful. The brand design fabulous clothes with a hint of weekend glamour aimed at the style conscious. I find their style is quite modern and I get a blogger girl vibe from it which is what really attracted me to it. And with clothes being made in limited runs, you'll be buying fairly unique pieces and can then drool over new collections. They ship internationally too so absolutely everyone is welcome to have a look online.
There are many pieces I liked from this site, including the Sofia top and Amber skirt. But my favourite had to be the Kara dress in black. This little black lace dress is trimmed at the top with studs. It looks super cute and its just my style. So, when my Mum said she was feeling kind and offered to buy me the dress, can you imagine my excitement.
It cost £45 which isn't a bad price. However I don't wear dresses often and I don't tend to spend much money on them, so this was fairly expensive for me. Also, their sizing was shocking. I never really though that I was extremely flat chested until I found out that the smallest size (8) would be too big on the bust. I'm usually a size 8 so finding out I would only fit into a size 10 on other aspects of measuring just seemed very out of proportion. Regardless, I brought the size 10 hoping that there was a mistake on the bust measurements.
Which leads me to the fairly boring part of ordering. Firstly, I was extremely impressed that they had a separate section on shipping for the Channel Islands. I know it sounds sad, but many business completely ignore the fact that we're here. For example, my nearest Top Shop is an hour boat trip away and they will not deliver a single piece of clothing to me. So this recognition made me very pleased. The whole process of ordering was very quick, easy and simple. I order a lot online due to the lack of variety I have on island and some sites can be a nightmare to order from. For me, this is a big fat bonus!
The delivery was quite quick too. And yes, it is a little big. But I liked it so much I decided to add straps so that I could still wear it. It also makes my dress that little bit more unique which is always good.
I definatley will look to buy more from Poppy Lux and hope that this has helped you find a great new site to shop at. But, what do you think? What shops/websites are your favourites at the moment?
