My Experiences Shopping With Boohoo

Hey guys,

So yet again I’m late on the Boohoo bandwagon.. But after seeing so many great Boohoo purchases by my colleague I knew I had to try it. Boohoo is known for being on trend yet affordable and fast delivery. And I agree with all 3 statements! Better yet Boohoo always have sales sometimes 30% off and other times 40% off. Make sure to keep an eye on their sales.

So here’s what I bought an my thoughts on each….

Lola Check Double Breasted Wool Blazer

I wanted to try the Check Blazer trend with out spending the $$. It’s suprisingly thick and warm for a $30 blazer which is a plus. The downside is the length is a tad long for me. With heels it looks fine but with flats I feel short. Also its an oversized blazer so make sure to go down a size. I’m normally a size 10 and bought a 10 but which I went down a size. Overall can’t complain since it was only $30.

Sintha Spot Print Wrap Midi Shirt Dress

Such a random and impulse purchase but my favourite! The material is a bit stiff and scratchy but for $20 can’t complain. The positive is, you don’t have to iron which is awesome! I wear this when I’m going for a “corporate” look.

I love that its not tight, its long, it has side slits for some added leg but still conservative. As you can see I do fold up the sleeves mainly because I’m such a shorty, but it also adds a bit more texture.

Anna Keyhole Turtle Neck Jumper

Another impulse purchase mainly to get free shipping. I think in theory its nice, but as someone who has lumps and bumps its not the most flattering jumper I own. Its very tight fitting, and personally I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing it with anything not high waisted- hence why I teamed it up with my Topshop Jamie jeans.

Also with the little heyhole, you need to make sure to wear a bra that has a v, and scoops low. Don’t wear a balconette bra, it just doesn’t work.

So as you can see the quality and sizing really does vary. I think its a bit of trial and error with Boohoo. Its not my favourite place to shop online, but I’d probably shop again with them. The shipping was fast, and I think they offer free shipping when you spend $50 or more. I haven’t done a refund with them but I think you have to pay for it yourself, which I’m too stingy to do which is why I kept all my Boohoo purchase.

  1. Great post babe. I’ve ordered from Boohoo a few times. I tend to shop on there when I’m after trend pieces. I brought a long coat from there a few years back and it’s still going strong haha! You should check out missguided too. I find the quality of their clothes a bit better and their prices are very similar.

  2. These suit you really well! I’ve shopped from boohoo once, and found it to be a hit and miss too. I bought a wrap dress from their petite range and it fit perfectly! But on the other hand, I bought a dress from them and it didn’t fit properly – the v line was way too low for me. I’m the same as you when it comes to returns haha – otherwise I would’ve returned that dress in a heart beat.
