Having spent literal hours scrolling through Newdress deciding what I fancied, I eventually settled on pieces that I felt would tuck nicely into my wardrobe. I have decided to combine all of the items in one post so as to allow a more streamlined and effective reviewing method - all opinions (as always) will be my own :)
First up, the cactus top. I'd actually spotted a monchrome version of this in Zara, but resisted my urges due to the ridiculously long queue. I was instantly drawn to the pastel colour scheme and cute, cartoon like design I thought would be a refreshing addition to my summery-ish wardrobe. The length is short-ish but not cropped and the material is quite light, but not too thin. Ideal for brightening up my very monchrome array of outfits.
I decided to pop these into the basket as I basically thought they were too good to be true. 12 pretty lipliners all for $2.83?? As of now, I have been pretty conservative about my colour testing, but will be sure to try out the blues and purples in due course. The quality was much better than I expected, quite easy to apply as long as lips are moisturised beforehand and finished with a lipstick or gloss. If you're looking to dabble in the lipliner world, I would highly recommend this little set.
As mentioned in my previous post, I am quite ahem, frugal when it comes to my sunglasses. Instead I have opted for quantity - though where these are concerned, I have not sacrificed quality. Okay, so they may not be the sturdiest, but for the price, they shield your eyes and look rather pretty - as long as you take care in not letting them slide off your nose. They come in a variety of colours, but this green-gold pair were my favourite. A true summer staple.
Finally, and probably my favourite - this cut out shoulder crop top. This fits so easily into my wardrobe and the fact it was previously lacking a long sleeve crop, meant I had to pick this up. It's very stretchy and comfortable, unlike other crops where they don't cling to you as you'd like. The straps cross at the back and having worn it last night for cocktails, I can confirm it's incredibly easy to wear.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend a click through Newdress. As we all know, the quality can be temperamental with sites like it, but I was certainly pleasantly surprised when it came to my items.
Which purchase is your favourite?
