    Petite Review: Beginning Boutique

    I could not resist the temptation of ordering online at Beginning Boutique.

It’s not quite ASOS in terms of range, but it’s definitely getting there. It was my first purchase with BB and I have to say, I am quite impressed. My parcel arrived in 2 days and arrived with a pretty BB postcard which was  handwritten by the lovely Kate who excels in customer service.

    Petite-friendly black sheer maxi skirt DIY project

I instantly thought thought of my Jil Sander inspiration of a simple white tee tucked into the fluorescent maxi shirt. Jil Sander convinced me to get a maxi. Didn’t get a fluoro pink, yet, but really liked this black sheer maxi by Miss Selfridge. So I went for a little look around to see if I could find a little cheaper. Success! I went onto Asos and found a black sheer maxi for only £15.00. However, the inside material was long and not quite petite-friendly. I decided it…
