I 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!
I’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.
I 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.
But 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.
