I recently stumbled across Boohoo, a online retailer for inexpensive and trendy clothing and accessories. Just browsing the site, the prices are more realistic for the average twenty something professional. So I loaded up my shopping cart and was surprised at how much I could get for $100! Upon arrival, I was immediately browsing my purchases, taking note of what what worked and didn’t work. Unfortunately, not everything looked as it was pictured and the sizing was hit or miss. So here’s everything you will need to know before you make a purchase of your own!
(+) Romper: You can see how I styled them over on Instagram, but this crossover chiffon , casual pop pom trim and ruffle neckline, all fit true to size. The last two are light weight enough to wear to the pool or beach, while still being cute enough to wear out and about without looking like a hot mess.
(-/+) Bathing Suit: Both this gingham and scallop version are cute and decent quality for the price, but run a bit small. If you fluctuate between sizes, I would go up. The price includes top and bottom.
(-) Skort: Both this and this caught my eye because I loved the patterns and was SO dissapointed when it arrived. The material was cheap looking, sized too small, and just all around not what I expected. Cute, but not worth purchasing.
(-) Tops: This ruffle hem top would have been amazing, had it fit correctly! It ran extremely small.
I’m always looking for a great bargain and can tell you that these sites are always tricky. Overall maybe 50% of what I snagged fit and worked well, the others had to be returned. A rule of thumb before you purhcase, anything that is form fitting, whether it is a romper/top/ or shorts, make sure to size up! Shop todays look, including today’s off the shoulder top, and the other Boohoo items that found their way into my closet. Be sure to check out Little Miss Pepper Designs etsy site for all your custom handmade jewelry needs. I am absolutely loving my “live more. love more. be more” bangles, reminding me every day what it means to live more beautifully!
Let me know if you have any sizing or quality questions, I’m happy to help!
