Hush Boutique - Instant Love

I have started to shop more at local (and online) independent boutiques - I've realised that the women/men behind these (online) shops are just like me - trying to make a living and a difference, so it's important to support them.

I noticed a few friends via Facebook interacting with Hush Boutique and at first thought it was just a local shop not in my area.  Which it is (they're based in Wilmington where they have a real shop). But .. they also sell online via Facebook so I was intrigued even further as to what the stock was really like.  I mean, it looked great on the hanger but for the prices, what was the quality like? Would it be sent swiftly? What would the clothes look like on a person?

I spoke with Alison at Hush Boutique who was very quick to respond, very friendly and extremely generous.  I explained that I loved her stock but would love to try it on so she sent me a neat parcel that arrived yesterday.

I had high hopes for the grey slouchy top and I loved the oversized black top/tunic/dress (have yet to try on to see just how short it is!) - will post tomorrow about the this.  Today it's all about the grey slouchy top - it's instant love for me - it's one of my favourite colours, it fits, it hides a lot, it exposes a bit, it's slouchy, it's versatile - it's everything I want/need/desire/lust!

Here is the pic that attracted me to it in the first place.


Here is it sat neatly this morning waiting to be tried on


Here is me in it


And then I added a necklace as I felt a bit bare around the neck (my obsession with scarves these past few years has a downside - if I've not got something 'up there' I feel naked!)


I can't wait to wear this with my other skinny jeans - red, green, blue. I'll do a bigger show and tell each time I wear it on Avenue 57

Sorry, what was that? How much is it and where can I buy one?  £20 (seriously yes!!) and you can contact Alison via her Hush Boutique Facebook page. If you do buy, please post on A57 as I would love to see how you style yours.

Fiona

    1. I can't wait to try the black top tomorrow - I think it will be too short for a dress but with skinny jeans/leggings it'll be fab
