Boohoo + Styling thigh slit midi skirt

My fellow beautiful curvy ladies, we need to talk about Boohoo! You know, I've been shopping with ASOS for about what, 7 years now and it's time for a change. Thanks to them I get to know about another incredible brand - Boohoo, which is becoming my go-to online boutique. Although ASOS carries Boohoo on their site, it isn't in its entirety. Some things like celebrity collaborations are still exclusive to Boohoo's site. 

Here are some thoughts I have as a paying customer of Boohoo and I thought you should too if you're planning to make your order. 

Choosing your size
Boohoo tends to run smaller in size when I compare with ASOS or Dorothy Perkins but they're still true to size according to their size guide. This means if I'm a UK 14 with ASOS, I'll have to size up with Boohoo. Do keep in mind that different companies has entirely different size guide, please make sure your measurements matches the size guide to avoid any disappointment from fit issues. 

What it's made of
Like I've said, clothing sizes run small at Boohoo and even the models modelling for the curve section are small too. I thought that it was harder to visualize myself fitting in the exact same outfit as the model. As a curvy girl, stretchy fabric is always a friend. It's worth to note is that a blend of viscose and elastane would give you a stretchy material. 

International shipping is chargeable at a flat rate but there isn't much to complain about for now, 3 orders with Boohoo later, all of my items reached me within a week. So that's £6.99 well spent.

Embrace your curves with this body hugging thigh slit midi skirt through the day and into the night. 
For a casual take, I styled the khaki skirt with a basic cropped t-shirt and added a bomber jacket for some layer. It ain't sweater weather here year round, so I've made the arm holes on my jacket useless by draping the it over my shoulders. Flat shoes are perfect for running around, so I went in and threw on a pair of grey loafers. 

There is nothing more sexy than the color black, watch as I switch from a cropped top to a mesh body suit. The outfit turns into something I'd wear to a wedding dinner or a nights out. Although this outfit would go great with heels but me being me, I'd never sacrifice comfort, so I went with a fancy pair of laced of flats instead.

Disclaimer: This is not an ad, I paid for every single piece with my own money and I genuinely think that my curvy friends should get to know another clothing brand for more options (:
