Femme Luxe Jumpsuit

This isn’t the first time I’ve tried the online clothing store “Femme Luxe.” My first round with them featured 1 dress, 1 shirt, 1 jacket and 1 sweater dress. Some items were so NOT my personal style (but ended up being fun additions to my wardrobe), others weren’t the greatest quality and some were perfectly fine quality. It was a big “hit and miss” experience. (Click here if you missed that post.) Now, Femme Luxe was kind enough to let… Read more »

This post will be my honest opinion of the clothing pieces I received – but please note, I have only worn each item of clothing for a short… Read more »

Tatyana Boutique Miranda Flannel Dress
