Hey everyone, I’m back! Sorry for the intermittent/lack of posting recently, I have been so busy with work, weekends away, holidays and being ill but I am really glad to be back in front of my screen and typing away again!
I’m very excited for this post as it is the first collaboration I have worked on since I started my blog, and hope it is the start of many good things to come! Recently an email dropped in at Lifestyle for Less HQ (which lets be honest is wherever my laptop is!) from a brand called Luxemme. Now I like to think that I’m pretty hot on brands, especially online and high street retailers who offer quality products at affordable prices, but Luxemme were not a company I had ever heard of before. I’m so happy that they reached out to me though so that I now have one more amazing place to shop in the future 🙂
When I looked at their website I was hooked! Although they didn’t have an abundance of different products, all of the products that they did have are ones I would definitely purchase. And actually for me, the fact that there weren’t pages and pages of different products was perfect. Some of my favourite online retailers such as Boohoo and Missguided have so many different products that I never have the time or patience to scroll through them all so I settle on the same old styles and often end up returning items because the quality or fit isn’t quite right, but this is where Luxemme are different!
Their carefully selected stock means you can rest assured that the products they have are quality! For example, the outfit I ordered is the Olivie Lace Trim Two Piece, which is definitely not something I would normally think to order. I tend to avoid white because it can often be see through and also avoid co-ords because my top and bottom sizes are different and I am self conscious about my midsection, however this outfit looked like it would not be a problem in those areas and I was so right!
I guess before I even start talking about the product I should talk about the service up until that point! First off, the email service is perfect! You get an email to confirm your order has been placed and dispatched and you can track your order on your account with them as well which is perfect if you are as impatient as me!
Even better, when the product arrives it is all personalised, which just adds a really nice touch. You are excited about receiving your outfit anyway, but when it comes completely personalised it is even more exciting!
Anyway, now on to the outfit itself! It is made of a gorgeous material with two linings, the overskirt and the underskirt which contains the lace trim, which combined make the product completely not see through!
Despite the dual layers, the product wasn’t too heavy either which was perfect as I took mine to wear on the final night out of my holiday, so too heavy would have been uncomfortable in the high temperatures and humidity. Also considering it was a two piece which I ordered in a size 10, it fit surprisingly well. I think given the option I probably would have been better having a size 12 top and a 10 bottom (for comparison all the bikinis I bought for my holiday were size 8 bottoms and size 16 tops!) as the top was just a tiny bit tight, but not uncomfortably so! Both pieces with the lace trim were a really nice length as well, covering up just enough whilst still being sexy and when I showed my family the completed look I was greeted with a chorus of “oohs and aahs” which is definitely the sign of a beautiful outfit and made me feel really good! I love the lace detail and also the zip detailing on the back, which made what could have been an otherwise plain outfit into a complete showstopper! Teamed with a pair of block heeled sandals and a colourful kimono, I finished the outfit off and it truly was a head turner. I already cannot wait to wear it again and think it could be dressed down with white flats and a sleeveless jacket for a lower key trip out with friends, as well as teaming the separates with other items in my wardrobe to really keep it fresh and exciting 🙂
But how much is it I hear you all asking? Well in true Lifestyle for Less fashion the complete outfit was only £35 and it was probably one of the best outfits I have worn in a long time – so I think it is safe to say that is a complete bargain and would definitely recommend Luxemme to my friends and family (oh wait I already have!) and would urge you to all have a look too!
And hopefully something that will encourage you to take a look right now is this exclusive discount code! To make their products even more affordable, Luxemme have kindly given me a 10% discount code just for you 🙂 Just head here and use code LIFESTYLE4L to get 10% off (and even better if you head over now you are just in time for their new stock!)
So I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed writing it and modelling all the pictures! As always if you did don’t forget to let me know what you thought in the comments below, and of course like, share and follow me both here and on Twitter and Instagram 🙂
Lots of love, Leanne xx
