Oi! A while ago I got a very cool message in my mailbox from the sweet people behind Boohoo.com, a UK based webshop that is looking to expand its reach throughout Western Europe. They offered me a bunch of items of my own choice, to introduce me to Boohoo. To which I obviously said: "WHAT YES OK I CAN DO THAT ABSOLUTELY". I mean, I'm not into every collaboration that is offered to me (I turn a lot of things down), but Boohoo is definitely something I thought you guys would enjoy.
So! These are the items I ended up picking. I went for a mix of some fanciful garments (the crop top, the tinsel bomber and the sequined evening gown), one silhouette I've been lusting over for ages (the bare shoulder blouse) and some pieces I knew I'd wear to death (the sweaters).
I don't know about you but I've actually known the webshop for quite some time now, from British bloggers I follow. You could describe them as an online version of Primark: very affordable, trendy pieces in a multitude of different styles. So if you are ever in need of a last minute party dress, a cute present or a low priced item to finish a certain outfit just so: Boohoo.com is definitely a great destination. Especially if you live nowhere near a Primark or just can't deal with the ridiculous mess and crowds that are always a big part of the Primark Experience.
The specifics: prices range from about 8€ for a basic dress to about 90€ for a head to toe sequined number, so you're bound to find something that is within your price range. Shipping is free for any order over 25€ (if you pick 10 items max.) or 5€ for a lower priced order, which I love all the way. Regarding the quality, I'd say you get what you pay for. The quality is comparable to what you'd get at H&M, ASOS, New Look or Forever21, with some items ranking slightly lower and some items ranking slightly higher. With regards to the sizing I'd say they size small-ish, so order a size up when in doubt.
Obviously I haven't had the chance to wear and photograph EVERYTHING yet, but here are two of the pieces I got.
Let me just break it down for you: the bomber is definitely one of my favourite pieces. It's fully lined and made of a Christmassy, tinsel-like fabric. And it makes me feel super fancy and professional! The cold shoulder top looks a bit different on me than on the model because I rolled up the sleeves (makes the proportions work better on me). It's kind of see-through but I don't mind that personally as that's always the case with airy white tops.
So! Have you ever ordered from Boohoo.com? They have some amazing party dresses right now so that's a great tip for the holidays.
