Since then I have blogged about things I'd like to buy if they did my size and tweeted about the lack of items in my size too. You see, Pink Clove do up to size 32 and that was something that always excited me about their brand. Over recent months the items that they offer up to a size 32 have gotten less and less - in fact in their new arrivals section they only have a selection of vests in different colours, everything else stops at a size 28. I know it can sometimes feel like I give brands a hard time, don't get me wrong I bore myself saying the same thing over and over again. However it is simply through disappointment, I love the items that Pink Clove offer and I get excited that they offer up to a size 32 until I see what is ACTUALLY available.
Anyway, a few weeks ago Pink Clove contacted me and explained that they would like me to try some of their items. They know that I have been quite vocal about my disappointments in the past but would like me to see just how good their items were - so I accepted.
I chose 3 items in a size 28 and waited for them to arrive. I can often make size 28 clothes work for me, they perhaps come up shorter or a bit tighter but that is not something that I mind. The clothes came quickly and I am happy to say the quality was great. The first 2 items are featured in this blog, but there is also a review of their denim shift dress to come!
I chose this duster jacket simply because it's something a little different to me. I am not a fan of jackets in general but with winter well and truly here it's about time I start thinking about covering up. I liked the idea of stepping outside my comfort zone and trying something new! I am so glad I did. I really love the look of the jacket and I know it's something that I will be wearing again and again.
The floral top is actually a dress but because of the size it comes up a bit shorter. That said, I actually really like it as a top and it goes to show that you can make plus size fashion work for you! Another lesson about ignoring sizes and trying items to see how they fit!
I'm not going to lie, I would love more Pink Clove items in a size 32. However that is purely because I love the items I already have in my wardrobe from there and I want more! At least trying these items has reminded me that I can make their items work for me and they look great - I'll definitely be trying them again!
