Missguided May 2017 Purchases
Recently Missguided paired with Lucozade and offered voucher codes in specific cans of drink at various shopping outlets across the United Kingdom. I was lucky enough to pick one up at the Manchester Trafford Centre while out on a shopping trip. And to my astonishment the code I inputted gave me a 50% off on the website! Many thanks to both of the companies for the code, I got two items at a great price, something I had my eye on for a few weeks and something brand new in that caught my eye. This blog post is a fashion review and a look at my style.
I saw this beautiful lace bralet on the New In page of Missguided the other week, it was definitely my kind of clothing. The detail on their images made it look pretty and I already owned tops that I knew I could pair with this piece, if it wasn’t warm enough to wear singularly of course.
What I was excited about – when I opened the plastic and held the top in my hands – was how soft it was. I really didn’t expect it! A lot of lace majority clothing items can feel scratchy against the skin but this piece was the total opposite.
This bralet is made with 100% Polyester, and although you have to wash it on a delicate cycle at 30 degrees to keep its shape and gorgeous lace intact, it’s easy enough to take care of. And as Missguided says on the label, “Or give this to your mum she’ll wash it!” Ha ha!
I chose a size 8 and was glad that I did because it fitted me perfectly. This bralet has a zip back fastening and also adjustable shoulder straps too. I would say that it was true to size if you know you’re back size so you can compare the sizes with Missguided’s size guide.
As you will see in my photographs now, it’s a lovely item with a great deal of potential and such a range of versatility for ones wardrobe. A bralet this nice should be shown off, but if you don’t have the confidence for that you can still treat yourself to a gorgeous piece like this one, and wear it underneath a pretty t-shirt. Remember that clothes are for you, nobody else, and so long as you feel confident and comfortable, that is what matters.
Here are a few more images of me wearing the bralet and some close-ups of the details.
My overall review for this Lace Bralet is a 4/5.
Value for Money 4/5
Quality of Material 4/5
Fit and Design 5/5

When you think about lounge wear it’s about comfort and ease of wear. I’m sure that this review of the ‘Grey Frill Lounge Tracksuit’ from Missguided, will appeal to a large number of you.
As I’m sure many of you will be like me, you have full time jobs and when you get home after a long day you don’t reach for a nice dress or a pair of denim jeans. Instead you pull on the most comfortable items you have so you can chill out.
If this sounds like you then why not take a look at my review of this tracksuit. Not only is the material super soft and versatile with its large pockets in the trousers. But it also fitted true to size for me and has such a nice detail with the frills on the top. It would make anyone feel more feminine and give a lounge wear a bit of glamour!
What is so special about it, I hear you all ask, isn’t it just a tracksuit? Well you’re right, it is! It’s nothing on its own! But when you’re both comfortable and stylish it can give you the confidence to wear this ensemble proudly. Whether you’re travelling and need extra softness or you’re doing the chores around the home, this piece is lovely. The frills are on trend right now too!
This outfit really is the best of both worlds, and isn’t bad for the price that I paid (with 50% off). I only have one con about it though, it’s quite a thin material. We have wonderful softness but it’s something that you will need to wear underwear and perhaps a vest underneath as well if you’re going out in it anywhere.
This tracksuit is made from 95% Polyester and 5% Elastane. This is what makes it so soft! It is recommended to be washed on a 30 degree cycle, and I wore and washed mine with ease, it also dried quickly because of the thinness of the material.
Here are some photographs of me in the tracksuit so you can see lengths. I am a size 6/8 and stand at 5 ft 3 3/4s. I purchased a size 8 of the tracksuit.
My overall review for this Frill Tracksuit is a 3/5.
Value for Money 3/5
