Femme Luxe with Harty's

Helena here!

I was asked by Femme Luxe if I would like to collaborate with them and review a sample of their clothing line. Now between you and me even though we’re big on equality at Harty’s, I’m not sure Arran would do the brand justice and suit their clothing style, but I thought I’d go for it! To be honest who am I to resist the lure of free clothes…

There were lots of items to choose from and all at a great price if you are on budget - occasional, beach, evening and casual wear to name a few. I thought that I’d go for a items that I could work in at home and then a evening dress to wear for when we win all those small business awards!

So after much deliberation I placed my order and within 36 hours it had arrived on my doorstep! Great service!

Here is what I ordered

- Black Animal Crocodile Print Leggings

- Khaki Loungewear Tracksuit Set

- Light Wash Ripped Skinny Jeans

- Black One Shoulder Ruched Slinky Midi Dress

Femme Luxe Delivery

It arrived in a lovely bright pink package and everything was individually wrapped.

The loungewear set is a lovely colour and lightweight. It comes in 2 sizes S/M 8/10 and M/L 12/14. I am a size 10 so I ordered the S/M and it fits fine, if a little snug on the derrière! I would suggest wearing neutral coloured underwear as it is somewhat see-through so stay away from the neon!

It’s currently on offer for £14.99.

Next the Crocodile Print Leggings. I wasn’t sure about these, but I have some ‘wet look style’ leggings which I wear every now and then so I thought that I’d step out of my comfort zone and see how I felt in them. I have to say I love them. They look great both casual and dressed up with a bodysuit and heels. I am definitely doing to be wearing these on a night out in Manchester soon. They come in sizes 6-12 and again I ordered a size 10. They are very comfortable to wear, unusual design, come in a range of colours and are currently priced at just £5.99! Bargain!

I am of that age where I wonder if I am past wearing ripped jeans, but as I live in them most days I had to choose some to review. There is a great choice and I decided once again that I would choose a pair that I wouldn’t normally go for - Light Wash Ripped Skinny Jeans. When I first opened the pack they looked very small (Size 10) and I didn’t think I’d get them on, however they do fit really well and are made from a comfortable stretchy fabric. Again these could be dressed up for a night out with heals or a casual day out. Perfect for our British Summer days!

Last but by no means least is the dress. I absolutely love dresses and I have so many in many different styles so I though I’d go for a classic design with the Black One Shoulder Ruched Slinky Midi Dress. A true classic! The material is thicker than I anticipated and it feels great and once you get it on it holds you in in all the right places (If you know what I mean!) This dress is a perfect night out on the tiles dress, that can be teamed up with colour in shoes, bag and jewellery. It comes in sizes 6-12, and an array of different colours. It is currently on offer with 50% off at £18.99 which I feel is a great price.

In my humble opinion I am really pleased with my items and I shall be gracing the workshop and streets of Bury and Manchester with them regularly. Sizes are true to UK sizing, my only negative if that they are mainly focused upon smaller sizes 6-12 as I feel that this limits their audience and brand.

Have a look at Femme Luxe and make up your own opinion. Their website has lots of options and discounts and is easy to navigate. Let me know what you think!

Now back to the wood, that oak ain’t gonna sand itself!

Thank you for reading,
