Femme Luxe Finery Haul & Review

A couple of weeks ago I wrote that I was in the mood for some jumpsuits (check my jumpsuits for women blog post here), and that was when I met the Femme Luxe website, so this time I’m writing a Femme Luxe Review to help who’s looking for more info on this online store.

So, this time I’ll be showing you what I’ve got from the website. I went for some different kind of clothing: from a white bodysuit to a lounge wear set! Check everything I’ve choose this time and more information about this website.

 

• Femme Luxe Haul Try on & Review:

Femme Luxe Finery review

Like I wrote on my previous post, I was positively surprised with the quality of the clothing from this website and this time I tried more than just jumpsuits. So my choices this time included a polka dot white and black dress, a lounge wear set, a white lace bodysuit (on that very trend style made with lace and some transparency) and a little white jacket.

If you’re wondering if Femme Luxe is a safe website and if it’s real, yes, it is. All four pieces that I had chosen arrived well and they were just like the photos showed on their website. Therefore, the clothes do arrive and from this and from my past experience, all of them were just like pictured on the website.

Bonus point is that the prices are very affordable and the quality of fabric and sewing are fine! So here are my photos showing how the clothes wear and how I styled them:

 

• White Polka Dot Dress:

It’s no surprise that I LOVE DRESSES, right? So, when I saw this asymmetric polka dot dress at Femme Luxe, I was in love! It’s such a cute dress and it’s also perfect for this time of the year, when the weather starts to change a bit. The asymmetric detail of one long sleeve makes it very delicate, but also very fashionable!

Since the dress is super cute, I went for a classy style! Matching it with a white pair of shoes and a white bag, plus some classy big black sunglasses:

• White Lace Bodysuit from Femme Luxe:

If you have Instagram (BTW, if you don’t follow me yet, don’t forget to follow @manuluize for your daily dose of fashion and beauty inspiration), you probably noticed how the lace bodysuit trend took over Insta outfits lately! So there I was in the mood to try it!

So I decided to pick a white lace bodysuit from Femme Luxe this time, to see how I’d feel about it and how to style it. My favourite way to style it is to wear with another layer, like a jacket or even a shirt or a long sleeved top. Plus, add a layered necklace and you will be super trendy!

• White jacket:

White jacket Femme Luxe review

Something that I noted that I was missing for a while on my closet was a white jacket! So when I saw this one, I knew that was it! Something as basic as a white jacket is always useful to match with so many different outfits and being white, it will never go out of style and it can be paired with so many different colours.

Here I styled it with the same lace bodysuit, creating a different outfit. But this jacket will be so versatile to pair with some many pieces, from tank tops to dresses, with shorts, skirts and pants.

 

• Lounge wear set:

I’m one of those people who loves beautiful pyjamas and loungewear, I mean, why wouldn’t you be stylish when you’re inside the house or just running errands, right? So, I felt in love with this lounge wear set with a pair of pants and a cropped top that’s so cute and super lovely:

I actually had thought it would be like a set of sweatpants, but the fabric is actually different, it’s lighter, so it’s perfect even for the not so cold days and for staying in. It’s cute and super comfy, definitely a win-win kind of outfit!

You can wear this set with a pair of sneakers or ballerina flats and you’re ready to leave the house too!

Nothing like a beautiful longe wear set, that if you need to quickly go out, you don’t even have to think that much, makeup and go! ;)

Jumpsuits for women: Outfits to inspire you

I always liked how jumpsuits for women looked, all so elegant! But I actually have no idea how, until recently, I didn’t own any long jumpsuits! No idea how that happened, but, well, problem is solved now, since I was really in the mood for some jumpsuits, so I’ve just got 3 of them at once (well, I had to compensate for all those years, right?).

And I must add that I’m LOVING wearing them! I love the elegant vibe the jumpsuits give and I’ve just chosen some models from a website called Femme Luxe and I’m loving them!

So get ready to be inspired with 3 different jumpsuits for women outfits that I worn recently here in Milan:

• Jumpsuits for women: 3 outfits to inspire YOU

The first jumpsuit that I chose was this asymmetric one with a long sleeve, it’s very elegant, but being asymmetric, it definitely has a fashion vibe to it. I went for an elegant outfit, pairing this black jumpsuit with black patent leather high heels and a black and gold belt.

Black jumpsuit Femme Luxe

Since this jumpsuit is an one-shoulder jumpsuit, I went for big and bold earrings to match the look I was going for.

Ordering online for the first time in a new website is not knowing how the fabric will turn out to be, right? Happily, I’ve been enjoying all my jumpsuits’ quality, they are all well made, the fabric is soft and it feels just like I was expecting them all to be.

 

Manu Luize - Jumpsuit Outfit

When we think about jumpsuits for women, we have a lot of options and different models to choose from! With long sleeve, sleeveless, strapless, in a solid color or printed, cute, cool or sexy! The options of outfits with jumpsuits are really endless, making it possible to wear a different one whenever you’re in the mood for a different style.

 

Well, if you’re in the mood for something sexy, this strapless jumpsuit can definitely be a great choice, like I did on my second outfit!

Strapless jumpsuit

photo: olucasp

It’s a black sweetheart neck jumpsuit, that feels so comfortable to wear, but it’s kind of sexy at the same time.

To make it a femme fatale outfit, just pair this strapless jumpsuit with high heels and bold accessories. To make it more elegant, I chose this golden belt to dress up my outfit with more elegance. A red lipstick can always help on the sexiness. ;)

Strapless black jumpsuit

The reason why I always choose elegant accessories whenever I’m going for a sexy look is because it will keep my outfit sexy, but elegant at the same time (which is my style), so I always prefer to dress it up to create a balance avoiding being too sexy (which is never a problem, just it’s not my personal style ;) ).

Of course I went for a little more sexy approach with this outfit, but you can also wear this strapless jumpsuit with ballet flats to make it a little more “dress down“/casual.

 

Matchy-matchy, take a look on how my heels match my golden belt on this outfit, sometimes, it’s a little detail that can make an outfit even more special:

Black outfits are always appreciated, but some colour is also good, right?

So moving on from the black outfits, I also chose a light peach coloured jumpsuit in a very different style. This jumpsuit is in a light colour and it’s made in a very classy and elegant style with frill sleeves. Making it a great outfit for the day or even for going out, specially now that we’re in the summer:

Here’s my light/cute makeup for this elegant look and my accessories are from Les Georgettes:

Are you in the mood of a jumpsuit too now?

Jumpsuits for women can be a great piece to wear at any time of the year, it goes well in the summer, but it’s also perfect for the fall/winter season, all you have to do is add a layer to it (with a jacket/coat). And you’re ready to go!

One of the advantages of a jumpsuit is that since it’s a “all-in-one” piece, it’s super easy to wear, because you don’t have to match a top + bottom part. So they are also perfect for when you’re in a rush and have no time to match all pieces of an outfit. Easy + stylish, that’s definitely a win-win situation.

Often we have a garment that can be worn and styled in many different ways, but have you ever thought about how to wear a shirt and style it differently?

Sequin dress for the holidays

I love a sequin dress, specially when the Holidays are here and a sequin dress can be a must-have for this season! Christmas and New Year’s Eve are just around the corner and to celebrate the holidays’ season in style, nothing better than a stunning sequin dress, right?

So thinking about all the parties for this season, one of the dresses I’ve picked is this stunning champagne and rose gold sequin dress, it’s a short dress and I’m loving it:

This dress is in champagne and it has sequins in rose gold, if you’ve been following me here or on Instagram (if not, just click @manuluize and follow me ;) ), you already know I’m loving everything rose gold, so I just fell in love when I saw this gorgeous dress. And that is perfect for the parties!

Being a short dress, I find it so versatile that you can wear to many different kind of parties where you need a beautiful short dress and with one like this, you’re ready to shine.

This dress is from a limited collection designed by Stephanie Pratt for Goddiva, the celebrity got famous for The Hills on the American television and she has been collaborating with the brand and I’m really enjoying this collection that is full of sequin dresses and jumpsuits, aka, perfect for this season!

And here are some details of my look, accessories also in rose gold to match my sequin dress and a party makeup with a red lipstick (that I love):

Elegance, tailoring and sophistication were all on the Maryling runway for Fall / Winter 2018.19 collection, as well as a highlight for monochromatic looks, especially in red and for the elegant plaid patterns.

I went to check out the Maryling fashion show during the Milan Fashion Week here in Milan and here are the main looks and trends chosen by Maryling for the next winter.

The coolest watch ever (Amuda Watch Review)

Do you know that super cool and different kind of item? I’ve got a watch that changes color according to the time and I’m loving it! It’s an Amuda Watch, check out my review on the coolest watch I’ve ever got and understand how it changes its colors.

So how does this watch change color?

Amuda Watch Review - Manu Luize

It even looks like a normal and super cute watch with a colorful background, but in fact it’s even cooler, because as the minutes and hours go by, the clock background changes color.

Look how it was in some different times:

Amuda Watch Review

By the way, this photo I took at the top of San Marino, a micro European state that is in the middle of Italy and it is a super charming place, so this was one of the sights of the city.

And another picture of Amuda Watch’s watch in San Marino at another time, showing some new colors in the background:

Amuda Watch Review

Besides being a beautiful minimalist and stylish watch, it is the most fun watch I’d ever had and I LOVED it because it changes color and every time it’s a little different. I can not resist to cool and fun accessories.

Every time I wear it, someone wants to know more about it and loves to see the new background colors from time to time.

But besides being cool accessory, something that I think is even cooler is that from every watch sold, U$ 2 will be donated to the Happy Hippie Foundation, which is an NGO founded by singer Miley Cyrus and whose mission is to fight injustices against homeless young, young people from the LGBTQ community and other vulnerable populations.

And the watch costs U$ 15, with free shipping worldwide, and it’s available like mine with the caramel bracelet or black bracelet, you can buy it here:

Amuda Watch, U$ 15.

 

I love to match this watch with more dress up looks or even more basic outfits, because it is very versatile and it goes well with both kind of outfits.

Atsushi Nakashima - Spring 2018

My Spring 2018 season at Milan Fashion Week started with the Atsushi Nakashima fashion show here in Milan, bringing an air of modernity to fashion.

One of the classics of fashion, the trench coat got deconstructed and it gains up to three fabrics and colors in the above look.

Different fabrics and colors in one piece bring asymmetry back to fashion, playing with deconstructed fashion and customizing colors and accessories in a modern way is totally in for the Atsushi Nakashima Spring 2018 collection.

ATSUHI NAKASHIMA - MFW 2018

Denim garments are paired with tailored pieces and even the sweatshirt gets an air as a more fashionable and stylish look.

 

And speaking of denim, it also became the fabric  for dresses like this stylish one for the next summer.

Atsushi Nakashima - MFW 2018

 

Blue, which turned out to be a trendy color already for this Fall/Winter season, especially when  in combination with black, it’s probably going to continue here for the next summer:

Looks Azul Atsushi Nakashima - MFW 2018

 

The play between more sportive pieces and the more sophisticated air creates an elegant collection for the brand’s next summer. Like in this look that makes this sportive combination almost looks like a piece of tailoring.
