I heart mail ++ my987wardrobe.com
My week in Dublin was probably the worst of my life, for reasons I don't even want to talk about. The only good thing there was shopping, really (but I think I'm going to talk about that in another post). I never thought I could miss my home so much and I was so happy to come back. I was even happier when I found lots of parcels waiting for me - I'm convinced that getting mail is like the grown-up version of Santa, because you get exactly the same feeling!
Beside two packets from Romwe (tights and jewelry I won in a giveaway.. lucky me) and some rhinestones (?!) I also got something from lovely Laura at My987wardrobe.com.. look at the photos and guess what it is :)
Launched in 2010, My987wardrobe.com is an online shopping website for women where each and every item costs just £9.87 or £19.87. That's right: everything on the website (and that means jeans, dresses, jackets, bags, jewelry, hair accessories) costs less than £10 or £20! Such a cool idea. Also, the website is run buy a former Topshop buyer - this means you can't possibly find any rubbish there.
I was sent the Butterfly Back dress and the Vintage Style Lace dress to try. The first one has a beautiful cut-out back I fell in love with. When I chose this dress I wasn't too sure about it, but I turned out to like it very much! It's a bit too tight on my hips but nevermind, there's thousands of ways you can wear this dress.. as a t-shirt for example. It looks like a plain black dress from the front, but the detailing on the back makes it quite elegant and perfect for going out at night. Also, it's 100% cotton, so it's soft and comfy!
As you can see from the photos, the second one is really my style. Although I'm not a huge fan of full-lace dresses, I like this one - maybe because it reminds me of a vintage nightgown! The embroidered detail on the front is what makes this dress an actual one and not just lingerie in my opinion ;) I'll definitely be using this dress lot in the summer!
I really can't tell which one I like the most, because they're both gorgeous in different ways. I love how they both are so versatile: you can wear them at night and day just styling them differently. Overall, My987wardrobe.com made a very good impression on me. Although it's been called "the Primark of the internet", you can get quite good stuff there! I think the concept of selling everything at such a low price is interesting - the prices at H&M or Zara can be much higher sometimes. I'm curious to see how this website will develop!
PS: I changed the layout a bit. Do you like it? :)
