I rarely feature much fashion or outfits on my blog, aside from the occasional Outfit of the Day inclusion, hence this post would be fairly different from my norm.
Lovelyspree.com had some new collections coming in and they offered to provide me 4 pieces from 2 collections, along with 2 accessories, to showcase on my blog. I browsed the available collections and thought the outfits were rather pretty so I decided to give this a shot.
It was hard settling on 4 pieces as the model shots do make the clothes look good. All the clothing shots on lovelyspree.com are professionally taken and show the clothes off very well so browse with caution!
From what I know everything comes in one size only and for reference I am a UK 6, 161cm.
Inspired by the pretty model shots I decided to do a photoshoot-esque take to this review/mention though I in no way claim to be a model etc. It's all in the name of fun and boy it sure was a fun experience.
Let's get to the stuff I picked up!

This long top is actually super comfy! The material also makes it cooling to wear in Singapore's weather. I like how the sleeves are designed such that it's not like that of a normal tee shirt, this almost has a very slight 'bat-wing' effect. It's a comfy casual wear that you can throw over shorts, leggings etc. It comes in a green gradiation too.

This piece is rather long in length and has an elastic band that scrunches it in around the hip area (for me). It also comes with hoodie-styled pockets that make it casual but not overly casual with the slight pleating near the neck area. The material for this is soft and comfy too with the bottom half of it being slightly thinner in fabric so if you get the white version, it's best adviced to wear it with a bottom.
This top has a light-weight and slightly see through material which makes it very comfortable to wear and not overly hot in Singapore, even with the long sleeves. I love the intricate designs along the top as they do add a nice touch without being too doily-ish.
Last but not least!
This is a little dressier compared to the previous ones and it can be worn as a dress or long top, depending on your height and what you pair it with. For me it works as a dress though I could throw on leggings and wear it in a different way. I do recommend viewing it on lovelyspree.com as the model wears it differently from me. The translucent sleeves add a nice touch and keep it wearable in our hot climate.
And that would be all the outfits I got! In terms of quality, fitting etc, the clothes came out exactly the way I expected them to. The quality is pretty decent, the material feels good (definitely not 'cheapy') and all that for a reasonable price.
Now, not forgetting the accessories that I got.
I picked up the bracelet featured in the third outfit, which I seem to be wearing just about everywhere lately.
And the next item is a lovely nautical necklace. It was too cute to pass up.
Now to toss in a little bit of makeup,
I had gone a little full out with this for the heck of it and wore falsies with brown lenses. I have been trying on falsies quite a bit lately and I think I am slowly getting the hang of wearing them. I do like how with falsies I don't have to fuss with putting on and removing mascara, makes life easier!
I already had on light makeup earlier in the day and primarily touched up and dramatised it for the shoot, sticking with a normal brown smokey eye to match all outifts.
I have no lip products on in the above shot as I applied it after changing and I went with two different lip looks for the various outfts.
Foundation touch up with Revlon Pressed Powder
Brows touch up with Canmake Brow Powder in
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Sleek Graphite Palette
K-Palette Liquid Liner in Black
MAC Powerpoint liner in Engraved
Canmake False Lashes in No. 01
Sleek blush in Pixie Pink
Bright pink - Shu Uemura lipstick in PK341
Pale shade - NYX Circe topped with ZA Lip Plumper Gloss in 09 Playful Pink
The first bright pink lip look with Shu Uemura's PK341 -- pink is more vibrant when you click to enlarge picture!
For the rest of the shoot I stuck with lip look #2, the more neutral one with Circe to soften it and ZA's Lip Plumper Gloss in 09 over.
Phew, and that's it! I know this post went on for real long but thank you all so much for reading!
