I was allowed to browse their online store and choose something I fancied. Well that is a big task, there are 100's and 100's of items on this site. I expect most people would think this a good thing but I actually found the sheer amount of things to look through just a tiny bit daunting.
In general I really like the site; it is clean, well laid out and easy to navigate. Everything is in neat categories and you can filter your search by type of clothing, size, brand and price. This is a big help when there are so many items to look through. The dress I choose is from the Taillissime range which I have now learnt is the plus brand of the French catalogue brand La Redoute. At £55 it is not the cheapest item but I do really love it. JJ said I looked like a rock star when I went out with my leather jacket over it, bless him! The main part of the dress is a black jersey fabric, a mix of viscose, polyamide and wool, it feels super soft on and does not cling too much. The sleeves are actually long with a sort of netting ruffle trim, I felt happiest with them pushed up a bit and they stayed up well and kept their shape. The bottom of the dress is also trimmed with the same in a ra-ra effect. I choose the subdued black but if you are a bit more adventurous than me you can have a black/ white trim on the dress.
