Now is the season for special occasions such as graduation, races and weddings – and to go to these events, you just NEED the perfect outfit. Lucky for me, Boutique of Molly came to my rescue! They’re also coming to yours as they’ve given my followers an exclusive code for 20% off – just use the code ‘ROBYNLE20’ at the checkout to receive your discount 🙂
When I was approached by BOM, I had a browse of their website and so much stuff caught my eye straight away. I liked a lot of their summery playsuits which would be perfect for holiday, or if Britain actually had a summer – neither of which look like they’ll be happening for me anytime soon though, sadly. So instead the lovely ladies at BOM helped me pick a dress for a day out to the races I have planned in August. BOM’s ‘Orla’ Bandage Mini Dress is the perfect outfit for me as I’ve always been a fan of body con and bandage dresses because they’re always so figure flattering (and make you feel like Kim K for a day).
I was absolutely amazed at BOM’s delivery service because my little pink parcel arrived just a day and a half after I’d picked my beautiful dress. When the dress arrived I couldn’t believe how heavy it was, the quality is amazing and there is definitely no chance of the dress becoming see through in this amazing material! The dress absolutely speaks for itself as it has beautiful panelling detail right round the dress which helps give a slimming effect and pull in any unwanted lumps. This dress is a bit more pricey the a lot of items on the BOM website as it’s a part of their luxury collection, but if you’re looking to splash out for an occasion, this dress is 100% worth it.
Here’s how I styled my dress for my #BOMselfie:
- Dress: Boutique of Molly, £89.95
- Blazer: Marks and Spencer, £29.50
- Shoes: Primark, £5 (fabulous little sale find!!)
- Bag: Michael Kors
I opted to keep my outfit on the monochromatic side to keep to the neutral tone of the dress. The only pop I added was the snake print on my bag which is still nude toned to match the dress. I chose these particular sandals as I feel this style is flattering for the legs when paired with bodycon style dresses (helping my vertically challenged self look like I have longer limbs than I actually have). The white in the sandals then matches with the blazer (which had to be added as you cannot trust British weather to be warm) which helps add a finishing touch to tie the outfit together.
You can find Boutique of Molly on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and check out their clothes collection at boutiqueofmolly.com.
It’s the first day of Spring and summer is just on the horizon; which means that SS16 clothes and makeup ranges are finally being launched – yay! I love any excuse to go shopping, but this is the perfect reason. I’ve picked three of my favourite collections:
Benefit – Hoola Collection
- Hoola Bronzing Powder, £23.50
- Dew the Hoola Liquid Bronzer, £22.50
- Hoola Bronzing and Contouring Brush, £17.50
- Hoola Ultra Plush Nude Lip Gloss, £14.50
- Hoola Zero Tanlines Body Bronzer, £19.50
This collection is absolutely gorgeous for creating that bronzed goddess look that we all love in summer. I think the prices are pretty reasonable, especially considering that Benefit products are always good quality! I already have the Hoola bronzer and love it, but I would also really like to try the new Hoola brush. Also, a little extra: you can get a personalised Hoola bronzer for just £5 extra – how cute?!
Too Faced – Spring Collection
- Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara, £17.00
- Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oil Mascara Remover, £13.00
- Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection, £36.00
- Peanut Butter and Jelly Eye Shadow Collection, £27.00
- Cocoa Contour Deep, £30.00
- Sweethearts Blush, £22.00
- Sweethearts Bronzer, £22.00
- La Matte Lipstick, £17.00
- Royal Oil Coconut Body Bronzer, £26.00
This collection really is beautiful for Spring. It offers gorgeous pink and purple shades which I love for this time of year, and also offers bronzing shades for those who are never without their contour. I’ve never tried any Too Faced products before so I’m not too sure about paying these prices – just in case I’m not a fan! If I do try anything, it will 100% be the Sweet Peach eye palette because the colours are all my kinda style!
Urban Decay – Summer 2016
- Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector, £25.00
- Afterglow 8-Hour Power Highlighter (Aura, Fireball & Sin), £19.00
- Beached Bronzer (Bronzed & Sunkissed), £20.00
- 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil (Walk of Shame), £15.50
- 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (Heartless), £15.50
I love Urban Decay, so I was super excited to see this collection, and it has not disappointed! Although they already have pretty similar products; it looks like they’ve tried to extend and improve on their best sellers! These products are so on trend right now, you can tell that Urban Decay know their stuff. The highlighters are a lovely new edition (we all know how much I love highlighters), and I’d quite like to try “Sin” in particular.
I hope this inspires some makeup purchases for the transition into the Spring/Summer trends! Let me know if you’ve already purchased any of these products, or if you’re planning to 🙂
