Why I love VIPme

I love VIPme (I really do) because they offer a great selection of unique statement pieces, which are great value for money. My parcels always arrive quickly. The clothing is high quality made from fabric which feels comfortable to wear.

  • You can browse clothing based on designer
  • Easy to navigate and modern/stylish website
  • Good quality pictures of the items (which are true to what they look like) 
  • I find VIPme clothing normally fits my dress size
  • Designs tend to have a feminine whimsical feel

Usually, when I order the smallest size in UK sizes it is too big on my waist and top half because of my petite frame but their sizes tend to come up smaller, which I like.

… but if you don’t have the above problem, like me, I’d recommend ordering a size bigger. As a blogger, they have always been a great brand to work with, very professional and I haven’t so far had any problems with them.

About the two-piece

I love two-piece sets; they match and look great together but you can also change them up with different pieces.

The skirt has a woven design with thick stitched tread. It looks and feels like high quality, like it would be difficult to break, especially, if you are super clumsy like me.

The shirt has a Mediterranean vibe, with embroidered detail of butterflies, birds and flowers to compliment the skirt. It also has white lace around the collar and white embroidered detail on the sleeves. It has a mandarin colour, with buttons down half of the front, making it easier to get on and off and a shirt sleeves have a small cuff and button to secure it.

It is in line with current trends and well-made, with a lovely mix of colours and pattern, which make you stand out from a crowd.

The skirt has a cool Aztec vibe and makes such a colourful statement and the shirt compliments it with a subtle feel.

The skirt is thick, high quality material, it has little stretch which means it maintains its shape when worn and doesn’t crease.

Although, my waist is a lot smaller than my hips, it means that it is tight around my hips and very loose around my waist. This tends to be a general problem for me because clothing is made based on average sizes and my body is out of proportion. I’ve learnt to alter things and wear a lot of belts to solve this problem.

Pros and Cons

  • Amazing detail on the skirt
  • Thick, high quality material for the skirt
  • You can separate the pieces and wear them with different items
  • Lightweight shirt, which is great in the heat 

  • The skirt isn’t great for someone with a curvy figure as it has little stretch
  • It is difficult to get on and off
If you have a curvier figure, then I would recommend then check out this VIPme post instead
