Floral Print Blazer – a review

fd-avenueI was recently offered the opportunity to try out a new piece of clothing from the online clothing retailer FDAvenue.  There’s a really large selection of clothing to choose from. I loved some of the dresses, but my legs don’t come out on public display very often, so I went for a safer option!  I’ve been getting a bit braver with patterns this year, as you may have noticed.  I decided to go for the FDAvenue Floral Print Blazer in Baby Blue.  I know it’s got blue in it, you know me!

Floral Print BlazerI’m quite small, and am between an 8-10 up top, so to be on the safe side I ordered a size 10.  There are two delivery options; next day or standard first class mail.  My floral print blazer arrived quickly, it was in a really small package, so could fit through my letterbox.  I was concerned that it would be badly creased when I unwrapped it, but no, as soon as I hung it up, it was fine.  It’s made from 95% polyester/5% Elastine which obviously helps.

The floral print blazer is great for this time of year, it has 3/4 length sleeves, and the polyester means it will keep you warmer than cotton on a cloudy day! I thought the floral print was bright and perfect for a holiday.

Floral Print BlazerI only have one problem with this floral print blazer.  The sizing.  To me it feels on the small side for a size 10, it’s ok to wear unless I want to do the button up.  Then it really does feel too small, it doesn’t sit as well as it’s designed to.

Floral Print BlazerBut it’s a new retailer to me, and I appreciate that sizes vary from store to store.  I’d been tempted to order the size 8, just as well I didn’t.  But that issue aside, it’s well made and would be a good buy at £19.99.

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.

  1. That blazer looks lovely on you – It’s a shame about the sizing, I bet you’re glad you didn’t get an 8! x
