East COLOURBLOCK MERINO DRESS

COLOURBLOCK MERINO DRESS

I bought this at the sale price of £59, instead of full price of £119. Its more than I usually spend, and certainly I couldn’t afford it if it wasn’t on sale but….I’m still wearing an East two piece skirt/top combo I bought around 17 years ago and it doesn’t show any signs of aging.
I’m not a fashion purist, I don’t care if things are last season ( or 17 seasons ago!!) I like to wear what suits me and is comfortable and this dress is perfect.

I love the feel of merino wool, I find its very warm without adding bulk, so perfect for knit dresses such as this. I ordered it in XL as I usually wear a 16-18 dress size, and as I’m a wheelchair user larger is better. Sitting all day means comfort is important and I don’t want anything tight pulling across my hips.

The dress feels wonderfully soft, drapes well and is so easy to wear, just pull on, thats it, no zips or button to fiddle with.
The skirt flares out gently adding shape while the neckline has a wrap design creating a V neckline and a small stand-up collar. The sleeves are a good length and its the perfect winter-to-spring dress.
I also love the colour combination, I wear a lot of black and grey, its a colour that seems to work for me and is easy to brighten up with coloured tights and matching scarf or necklace.

It says hand-wash, but like most people I don’t have time for that so it went in the machine on a cool wasg, gentle/delicate setting and was fine. I did remember to turn inside out, that helps avoid piling.
I didn’t tumble dry, I never do with anything wool, it’s so easy to shink it, I just laid it over an airer to dry.

Stars: Five, It looks good, is easy to wear and will give me lots of use.

underwear, wormer, flea treatment, and a box cutter

WHIZZ Men’s Underwear,100s Micro Modal Middle Rise Breathable Skin Business Class Boxer Brief Trunks

WHIZZ Men's Underwear,100s Micro Modal Middle Rise Breathable Skin Business Class Boxer Brief Trunks M Black

These come in several different sizes and two colours. I chose Black, size M.

They’re very soft and apart from the front tailored section are made in one piece thus no extra seams that rub. For those with sensitive skins that’s a real bonus.
Even the front shaped insert is stitched with a zig zag flat stitch and doesn’t rub. The wash tag at the back can be torn out too, so as to prevent rubbing.
Underwear is something so basic, and yet if it rubs skin can cause huge issues.

I really like these. The waistband is soft and flat too, doesn’t dig in but sits nicely on low waist, and the stitching on the legs is also carefully done.
The material is incredibly soft Micro Modal, I’ve had underwear in that before and it washes well and keeps shape. It has a little spandex which allows the fabric to stretch gently to individuals shape.

Ok – they’re meant for men but though I’m not male I love soft boxers under trousers, and I’m wearing them today under some denim leggings.
They are really very comfortable, the shape at the front stays reasonably flat, and it doesn’t matter that as a lady I don’t have the equipment to fit there 😉
This company ought to make these for ladies too – I’m sure they’d do well.

Stars: Five, really comfortable underwear for ladies too!!

Do the job, easy to break for when a half tablet needed and palatable so the dogs are happy to eat as a “treat” so that makes things simple.

Easy to use, effective and keeps pets and therefore home flea free.
I’ve a big garden, lots of wildlife – foxes, rabbits, deer hedgehogs etc so fleas are just part of life and inevitable. I’m sensitive to flea bites – the little critters love me, so keeping dogs flea free is essential for both of us.
This doesn’t deal with ticks though 😦 so we still need to watch for those, but they’re far easier to remove than fleas.

Three in a pack, and somehow I managed to lose one the first day – its in the house somewhere…This is perfect for keeping in a little bag I wear all the while. It has my phone, my tablets, my spare glasses ( reading and distance ones now:-) and I always have thew wrong ones on it seems!) pens, tissues, and this little knife. If I’m in garden its great for cutting flowers, bits of string, tape, and its easy to open post with it, and then slice up boxes to fit in the recycling bin, and opening the horse feed bags is a doddle now. Cheap and so easy to use.

ANGVNS Women Lace 2/3 Sleeve Bridesmaid Homecoming Long Gown Maxi Cocktail Dress

ANGVNS Women Lace 2/3 Sleeve Bridesmaid Homecoming Long Gown Maxi Cocktail Dress

Product Details

 

Review from Jeannie’s Reviews on wordpress.com

Pretty dress, I’m not sure about Bridesmaid in the black, unless its a Goth chic wedding 🙂

It comes in a choice of colours and sizes. The sizing is fairly accurate as regards inches, but note that the actual measurements on the xxl that I have, whilst equating to sellers, is a UK 18 not a 22.

I like this dress, it looks like a lace type but its a kind of jacquard effect fabric, where the lace is actually a pattern on a thicker fabric, perfect for cooler days.
This one I’ll be wearing in winter, nice and warm, even though its a bit big for me ( I’m a 16) as I like loose clothes as I’m sitting all the while ( wheelchair user).
I’ve been wearing another one from Angvns, similar to this and its washed well, though I’ve dried it on an airer rather than tumble dried. ( and caught the hem in the scooter a few times….downsides of wheelchairs and long dresses but I love them anyway)

The spandex in the fabric gives a slight stretch, and gives a kind of sheen to the material, as well as making this a really comfortable dress to wear.
Finishing is good, and I love the lace sleeves and pretty edged neckline.
There’s a short zip at the back, goes down to the waistband, which is quite high, almost empire line height, but with the stretch in the fabric its easy to just pull on without the zip I found.
The skirt has wide inserts to make it really flare out well, perfect for dancing at the wedding! My late husband would love this dress, he always adored anything very femenine looking, and the flare on this would have appealed to him. I’ll think of him when I’m wearing it.
For me its an everyday dress, not just a special occasion one – I’m getting closer to the purple dress and red hat age…..except for me its going to be silks, lace and velvet with sparkles!!

Stars: Five, easy to wear dress, suitable for many different occasions.

Ekouaer Satin Bra, Chiffon Evening Gown,

Ekouaer Women’s Satin Demi Lace Trim Underwire Push Up Bra 32B-38E

Product Details

 

 

This comes in a wide range of sizes – good, because so do we! It’s in three different colours, I have it in silver in 38E.

Its only recently I’ve realised I’ve been wearing the wrong size bra, and I needed a bigger cup size rather than a bigger bra.
Its so much more comfortable. Like lots of ladies I’ve one boob bigger than the other – quite a big difference, and what I need to do is ensure the big boob fits, the other, well a matching pair would be good, but so long as the bra is a good fit around chest and correct cup size for the bigger boob it looks fine.

This is very comfortable to wear, has a wide back fastening with a three hook fitting and lots of adjustment. The shoulder straps are reasonably wide, but could be a bit more generous, and again there’s plenty of room for adjustment.
The fabric feels good, smooth and silky, with non scratchy lace, and inside the cups no seams means nothing to rub. Bonus!
With boobs my size I don’t need the padding (!) but it does provide a bit of cover for cool days or when wearing thin tops 😉
Fit is good, pretty accurate I think. Label says hand-wash only but…pfft, who does that? Mine will go in machine on cool wash, and hang up to dry.

Stars: Five, attractive bra giving support for bigger ladies.

 

ANGVNS Women Sleeveless Ruched Chiffon Maxi Party Evening Formal Gown Dress

Product Details

 

 

This pretty dress comes in five colours and sizes S to XXL.
I have the black version in XL and you can see from my measurements its pretty accurate to what sellers claim, though take note that its bust 40” and waist 34” approx, and in charts that equates to a UK 16 rather than a 20-22 as sellers chart shows.
Order by your measurements not by sellers chart sizes.

Its very well finished, I’ve had a few garments from this seller and they’ve washed and worn well, though this is more an occasion dress than an everyday one. I might dress quirkily but even I wouldn’t wear this every day!
Its a v neck, flattering to most figures, and has a highish waist and then flares out to a very full skirt thats shorter at the front than the back. If you’re wearing some pricey shoes that’s great for showing them off – who wants to hide Jimmy Choo shoes costing hundreds?
Its fully lined, great as the top layer is very fine, and the bust area has some extra padding and support.
There’s a clever hidden side zip for ease of putting on and taking off. Important when you’ve had a few drinks…

It comes with a pretty diamanté broach and necklace. I’d stitch the broach in place if you use it as it doesn’t fasten very well, and it does add that extra bit of sparkle.

Stars: Five, flattering, comfortable and  easy to wear dress.
Billie Bijoux Sterling Silver Earrings Studs with Princess Cut Cubic Zirconia Diamond Rhinestone, Womens Fine Jewelry

Product Details

A pretty little pair of earrings, that come in a pretty white and gold box, making for a great inexpensive gift, that looks as though they cost far more.

They come in five different sizes, from 3mm to 7 mm, and I’ve the 5mm size.
They are made of Sterling Silver  with a 14K white gold plating, and Lead & Nickel Free, good news for those who like me have sensitivity to certain metals.
The gemstone is a square cut Premium AAA Princess Cut Cubic Zirconia, and there’s a choice of sizes.
They are a post and stud set, easy to wear and in a very classic, simple square style that makes them suitable for all ages and occasions. I really like them, I’d keep them for me but wearing cheap metals over the years gave me so much irritation the holes closed finally. Its why I’m always banging on about using good materials, not cheap metals and hoping that prevents this happening to others. Jewellry used to be pro rata far more expensivce and I could only afford the cheaper stuff…not any more, there’s some real bargains like this to be found.
Though I can’t wear them I know one of the grandkids will love these.

Stars: Five, classic style for all ages

pretty short sleeve top and cosy dress

GLO-STORY® Women’s Lace Off The Shoulder Short Sleeve Slim Fit T-shirt Tops1362

Product Details

This is such a pretty top, I saw the deep lace neck and shoulders and didn’t notice its also got another of my loves – glitter!! Some delicate little silver embellishments in varying sizes attached randomly across the bust area.

I love it and may order one for me in a larger size. I ordered it in size L – equates to an 8-10 on the sellers charts, of course in UK size L would be more a 14-16 which is my size and I didn’t note there was a size chart included – my bad!
Note: SIZE 2-4 UK=Size (S) │ SIZE 4-6 UK=Size (M) │ SIZE 8-10 UK=Size (L) │ SIZE 12-14 UK=Size (XL)

Still, this will make a great gift for one of my slimmer friends or family, and I’ll buy a larger one 😉 Its actually very stretchy and I can wear it but of course stretching across to a larger size means the bottom is too short. Best to get the right size…or this might find its way into my wardrobe for “when” I lose weight. Hasn’t everyone got a couple of those items??

Anyway, it comes in black, grey or white and sizes S to XXL. Its a lovely soft cotton feel, with the elastane providing some stretch to make it really comfortable to wear.
I love the lace top, can be worn higher over the shoulders/neck style or pulled across arms as shown in the picture. either way it looks really pretty, is easy to wear, will go with skirts or trousers and is small enough to be rolled up and tucked into a suitcase for a weekend away giving something quick and easy to wear that lifts any outfit.
Its also great for parties and evenings and also would be perfect as a summer t shirt.

Stars: Five. A very versatile top, perfect for all occasions

GLO-STORY® Women’s Short Sleeve Pullover Raglan Hoodie Dress 1800

Product Details

 

I ordered this in size XL – equates to an 12-14 on the sellers charts of another product I was reviewing ( the lace edge top) , of course in UK size XL would be more a 16-18.
Its very stretchy though and though I’m a size 14-16 ( I always order larger – I like loose clothes as I’m sitting in wheelchair), it will fit me easily, though doesn’t look as good sitting down.
Still, its warm, easy to wear and snuggly which is what I wanted.

Its got a hoodie too although I can’t see me using that but granddaughter always has her head tucked in one, indoors and out….
Its so soft and easy to wear it would be great for nightwear or just lounging around in at the end of the day.
Its comes in three colours and four sizes. The logo is a marmite one – you either love it or loathe it, I love it but I know others will hate it. A plain version for this would be very popular I’d think.

Its washable, I don’t know about tumble dry, I’d use a cool wash and hang to dry just in case it shrinks.
The description says Body Con, that seems to crop up a lot and its not what’s usually accepted as Body Con in UK, those where the elastane holds you in to give a slim(mish) silhouette in an oh-god-its-hard-to-breathe way. this has elastane to give stretch but Does Not hold in the lumps and bumps! Still, that does mean its incredibly comfortable – I know which I prefer wearing.

This is easy to wear, cosy and  is small enough to be rolled up and tucked into a suitcase for a weekend away giving something quick and easy to wear or a spare nightie.

Stars: Five,great for casual daywear or sleeping

Two piece dress set, sports bra

ANGVNS Women’s Chiffon Deep V-Neck Long Sleeve Tops ,Midi Skirt ,Two Piece Set, Bodycon Dress

Product Details

 

 

 

 

I’ve had some really good clothes from this company, and was attracted by this set, skirt and blouse that look like a dress.

Its a great idea and looks very smart but there were some issues.

The top is very pretty, a wrap front style but gapes open to the waist so you’ll need to use a broach or add a couple of stitches if you don’t want to flash the world – might help get that pay rise though 😉
Its very generously sized, I have it in size XL and looking up a UK XL is equivalent to size 20 – bust 45, waist 38 hips 48. My measurements though come out at around 45 bust, but waist of 28 inches, though that will stretch out to 38, but that’s going to be a little uncomfortable and of course make it shorter…. I’d go with the skirt size you need and let the top hang looser, its the kind of design that can do that – just keep that top closed though !

The fabric is smart, a thin soft jersey type for the top, with the open v wrap front and button three-quarter sleeve, and the skirt has a wide elastic waist and a contrast fabric panel in the front.
Sizes go from small to XXL and its very fairly priced for something you can wear as a dress or two separates.
Body con – I always expect that to be some firm hold-you-in hard-to-breathe Lycra, this isn’t so I’m not sure what the sellers mean by adding that in the title.

Stars: Four, versatile set

Senchanting Women’s Seamless Comfort Sports Bra Removable Padded Wirefree U-back Double Layer Perfect for Yoga/Sleep/Every day use

Product Details

 

This comes in six colours, and  sizes, S,M,L,XL,XXL,XXXL. That last one – yes, the XXXL – is what I have.
My granddaughter who’s 15, and a 34 b/c loves these, and they look so comfortable I wanted one. I’m a 38E so went for the XXXL.

First off is the fabric, its got quite a lot of stretch which allows plenty of movement, but that also means it gives minimal support, though the inserts help.
The fabric is a nylon/spandex mix and feels very soft and like a brushed cotton.
Its machine or hand washable and quick drying so its easy to quickly wash and rinse and hang ready for next use. For doing sports daily that’s important – a great bra does no good if it spends most of the time in the wash basket. I know some people that shower with them on and then simply quickly rinse in plain water and hang on radiators ready to use.
The fabric is claimed as breathable and moisture wicking, I’ve no idea if that’s right, but it certainly looks breathable and it didn’t feel uncomfortable when I was wearing it.
It seems to be shaped by way of the side and front stitching acting as support, and some padded inserts that can’t be removed – they also cover the sticky nipples that come from air con rooms, but TBH I don’t need the extra size they give 😉
Its got a U back pull on design, we prefer those with zip front but of course they are more expensive.
Its very soft, seams are all overlocked and don’t feel as if they would rub – again that’s very important.
The  lower edge of the top has a soft ribbed brushed fabric section. That helps it grip to skin without rubbing.
There aren’t wires in the top, and the shoulder straps are cut wide to offer support without cutting in. That applies to all sports, comfort is priority, though this top also looks good.

Its so easy to put on and  remove quickly, great for showering when you’re hot and sweaty and its far easier than fumbling with back snaps and hooks….
Its a great bra, designed for comfort and practicality while still looking good.
I think you need a size a couple larger than you usually wear, this goes on me, is very comfortable but really its far too small in the cup area.
Its  very reasonably priced and great for low impact sports such as yoga, but no good for running or any other high impact sports.
Stars: Five, really comfortable but small in cup size and really only for yoga ect sports.

Pretty beaded dresses.

Kayamiya Women’s Inspired 20s Beaded Maxi, Long Gatsby ,Flapper, Prom Dress, Gown

Product Details

This is a really gorgeous dressand as with all I’ve had from this company its beautifully finished, and well constructed throughout, beaded hems and edges, neat stitching, clever hidden side zip .

Comes in just the one colour and in four sizes S,M,L,XL. I have it in XL.
The measurements I’ve shown were on the fabric unstretched, and as its very stretchy it will go considerably larger. I’m a size 16 and this dress is perfect and would fit someone larger because its actually roomy for once 🙂
It is very long, I’,m 5ft 6 in and it still hangs on ground so you need to wear heels if you’re my size or less!

Its actually a perfect desiugn for ladies like me who are a little larger…the V neck is flattering, the shoulders are wide and balance the design, spaghetti straps are fine on slim ladies but not so good on us larger ones IMO. Its a sleeveless design with the arms stopping at point of shoulder.
The drop waist effect is great for disguising any err…less firm pasts 🙂 and great for when its a dinner evening!

Its got a very vintage feel which appeals to me, the drop waist very 1920’s and the way the skirt bells out from the dropped waist makes it flow really well and look very elegant.
Its decorated with  thousands of tiny bugle beads and sequins in black and gold in swirly flowing curves, giving it a really organic feel.

The decorated top layer covers a soft plain black under layer, which comes from neck right down to the hem. As the top layer is a mesh holding the decorations that’s needed, unless you’re looking for the Cher effect, in which case you could cut it out!!

Its polyester, which is fine to machine wash, but all those beads won’t like the battering so do as it says and carefully hand wash. Don’t wring it out but blot carefully in a towel before drying flat somewhere.

Its a perfect dress for cocktail evenings and formal winter parties.

Stars: Five, gorgeous well made dress, perfect for parties.

 

Kayamiya Women’s 1920S Sequined Beaded Embellished Fringe Midi Gatsby Flapper Dress

Product Details

 

This is a really gorgeous dress, beautifully finished, and well constructed throughout, beaded hems and edges, neat stitching, clever hidden side zip . Comes in black only and in four sizes, S, M, L, XL.

I have size M and the hip measures around 32-34 inches, the bust area the same, and looking online that’s about right for an 8, possibly a 10, so its not a UK M but an asian one…watch out for that.
The fabric does stretch a little, though doesn’t look so good when its pulled out of course, and the sleek shift design really means you need a good fit.
If in doubt about sizing ask the sellers – I’ve found most are really helpful. Saves disappointment and returning items.

Its a fitted shift style so to look best you really need to ensure a good fit. The shoulders are quite wide and the neck line a simple shallow curve, the simplicity of the cut lets the flamboyance of the sequins, beading and fringe really show up well, without looking too garish. Too much is not a good thing and something needs to be toned down, and here its the cut and style of the garement thats been simplified.

Its decorated with  thousands of tiny bugle beads and sequins in black and silver in a lovely geometric design, very popular in 1920’s.
The decorated top layer covers a soft plain black under layer, which comes from neck right down to the start of the fringing. As the top layer is a mesh holding the decorations that’s needed, unless you’re looking for the Cher effect, in which case you could cut it out!!
Length is good, very cocktail vintage. Its got a very vintage feel which appeals to me, and yet the styling is so classic its suits any formal occasion.
I love the Art Deco geometric style of the beading, and the deep simple fring hem. the sliver sequins are very vibrant and eye catching so its not a dress for wallflwoers, no hiding in a corner in this dress!

Its polyester, which is fine to machine wash, but all those beads won’t like the battering so do as it says and carefully hand wash. Don’t wring it out but blot carefully in a towel before drying flat somewhere.

Its a perfect dress for cocktail evenings and winter parties.

Stars: Five, a pretty dress but not for shrinking violets – though maybe it gives them confidence, who knows? .

The shoulders are quite wide and the neck line a sort of squared off sweetheart design, the simplicity of the cut lets the flamboyance of the sequins, beading and the sheer mesh top and back stand out.
Too much is not a good thing and something needs to be toned down, and here its the cut and style of the garment that’s been simplified.
Note that sheer back – it means going braless or choosing one carefully, sort that out before you need to wear the dress. Don’t get caught out on the night!
The neckline, shoulders and hem are scalloped and edged in silver thread, and look very pretty.
Length is good, very cocktail vintage, but its also fun enough for contemporary wear, to go clubbing as well as wear on formal occasions.

Its decorated with  thousands of tiny bugle beads and sequins in black and silver, arranged in a very curving Art Deco style and has silver embroidery on body of dress as well as all edges.
The decorated top layer covers a soft plain black under layer, which comes from bustline at front, and waist at the back, right down to the hem. As the top layer is a mesh holding the decorations that’s needed, unless you’re looking for the Cher effect, in which case you could cut it out!!

Its polyester, which is fine to machine wash, but all those beads won’t like the battering so do as it says and carefully hand wash. Don’t wring it out but blot carefully in a towel before drying flat somewhere.

Its a perfect dress for cocktail evenings and winter parties.

Viihahn Men’s Winter Genuine Leather Upper Warm Shearling Lining Fully Wool Lined Lace-up Snow Shoes

Viihahn Men’s Winter Genuine Leather Upper Warm Shearling Lining Fully Wool Lined Lace-up Snow Shoes

Product Details

These come in two colours, I have the black version which looks very smart.
I have the size 46, UK 11 for son no 2. These are a little small but luckily he’s between 10 and 11 so fit fine, a little snug but as linking compresses they’ll be better. Currently that size isn’t available so I was lucky 🙂

They have a good thick rubber sole, with grips at the bottom and quite thick and springy making them comfortable for long periods. There’s a logo saying “air ring system” so I’m guessing there’s an air cushion in the sole, making them springy but also helps in keeping out cold.
They are incredibly soft and flexible, with the lining being really warm and thick which
should keep out some of the cold too in snow, when it penetrates shoes with thin soles.
I suppose with time that will flatten but sheepskin being a natural fibre its great not only for warmth but for absorbing sweat and keeping feet dry. In the cold wet feet are really uncomfortable.

They lace up and have a padded stitched section around the top, preventing rubbing and keeping foot comfortable.
They should keep feet nice and snug in winter. They’re not wellies, not DMs and in wet slushy snow, the same as most boots, they’ll let in water but in crisp dry snow, cold icy days they will be perfect. I’d treat these with a waterproof dressing for shoes to help add more protection.

Living in rural North Norfolk its gets cold in winter – very cold, as we stick out and in a direct line the the North Pole so winds can be freezing, shoes like this are essential if you’re outdoors at all and these look good enough for work as well as leisure.
You may want to order a size larger than usual, as the lining compresses they’ll lace tighter, but they do seem a bit small for size.

Stars: Five, perfect for winter, smart enough for work, warm enough for outdoors

scarf and socks

Natural feelings lightweight stylish breathable flower patterned women scarf ,Shawl, Wrap

Product Details

 

 

Scarves are handy for autumn, winter, spring and even cool summer days. I’ve loads. They give that extra layer of warmth and when they’re as fine and lightweight as this one you can tuck them in a bag of pocket and never get caught out.

This is a very fine knit fabric, loose and easy to wear but very warm. Its got a really pretty black design, in a repeat pattern.
Its big too and yet rolls up really small so takes up little room.
Its really soft to touch, I’m fussy about the feel of things and this is something I really like, not scratchy or rough but just very cosy and tactile.
Its got a light fringe on the shorter ends.

Its says hand wash, but as readers of my reviews know I hate doing that so this will go on a delicate wash and I’ll probably line dry or pop on an airer rather than tumble dry. That does tend to shrink things… and though this is long and it won’t hurt I’d like it to stay long and loose weave, so I can roll and wrap several times round my neck.

Stars: Five, perfect for cooler days

Waymoda 3 Pairs Unisex Sports Socks, Quick Drying, Elastic Compression Strip and Non Slip buffer Liner, Outdoor Running Hiking Camping Trekking Athletic Polyester Crew Socks, Men Women UK 3-8/EUR 36-41

Product Details

A pack of three sports socks that come in three colour ways but only one size – UK 3-8, so if you’ve larger feet they’re not for you.

They’re well made, a good thick sock that feels warm, and the seam at the reinforced toe is very flat and along top of sock only. I hate socks that have thick seams, they rub, especially over toes, so that’s a good feature.
The elastic at the ankle is quite tight so if you’ve circulation issues or thick ankles they may not suit you.
There’s extra strips ion the underside to support the foot.
They’re made of polyester but the fabric feels like cotton and the description says they’re wicking, which is great in a sport sock when sweaty feet are inevitable. Wicking away moisture keeps feet comfortable, helps prevent rubs and irritations that thrive in moist atmosphere – the dreaded athletes foot for example! You don’t have to be an athlete to get it – I’m an amputee, one leg, wheelchair user and yet I get it !!!

Otherwise they do what they say, a smart pair of sports socks, warm, comfortable and easy to wash.

Stars: Five, a thick and warm pair of socks.
