Lookbook Store invited me to review three items of my choice for them. Lookbook Store is the latest online women boutique. They have a huge selection of fashion forward clothes and accessories for every style from boho over glam and casual to classic and street style. The latter two or three ,are well along my line of style. In addition to their great selection they also have a newsletter and a live chat. The former I like because it is great to learn about discount opportunities and sales when they come up, and not when they are already history ;). The latter I always like when online shopping. I like to figure out the exact measurements as I never order by size only. However, at Lookbook Store I could have done it. All pieces I picked are right to their stated US size and all are a perfect fit! 🙂
Today I will show you this little baby pink dress that immediately caught my eyes when I browsed their offers. A baby pink sheath dress was on the top of my wish list since a long time. The cup sleeves of this beauty are perfect, as is the fit and the length. The dress has even pockets (see photo below)! Having been raised in Europe I have learned that pockets are a sign for high quality clothes. I really love the cut of this dress.
The fabric is a closely knit jersey (i.e. no see through!) and so soft that it is a dream. It also moves so nicely. The dress is not lined, which is a great thing at this time a year. In addition, the ease allows for great ventilation so one does not sweat like a pig during the dog days ;). On the other hand, the ease and the flow of the fabric also allow wearing a half slip or slip underneath later during the Indian summer. Living in Alaska, such “double dipping possibility” is always a thing I look for in every clothes. Top this baby pink dress with a gray, white or black cardigan and you get some extra wear out of it later.
I was very impressed with the craft(wo)manship of the Lookbook Store clothes I received. Look at the darts in the photo above that the dress has to model the bum. The seams are all at same distance. I was also really positively surprised about the quality and the love for great details (e.g. the pockets, cut, darts, zipper). The back zipper is made from white satin with silver-colored metal zipper teeth, which gives the dress a right on trend vibe. Love it <3. An extra detail of this zipper is that it opens to both sides. Thus, you can easily take this dress from work to girls’ or date night out by just giving the dress a little slit by raising the lower zipper a little bit. What a great idea!
When I saw this baby pink dress from Lookbook Store I directly had in mind to style it with a black motorcycle jacket. Since I have none and it would be too warm right now – temperatures are in the 80s here in Fairbanks at the moment – I styled the dress with my black motorcycle vest. I love the contrast of sweet and tough in one outfit. I will definitively keep the motorcycle jacket plus this baby pink dress outfit idea in mind for the fall. My white one should do the trick as well. Lookbookstore has a huge sale going on right now with some pieces being up to 80% off! Yes, eighty percent! I think that at the normal price their clothes are already a great deal and worth every cent. Now they are a real steal! Take a look at their store to see it yourself. It is really guilt-free shopping. And here is the link to this beautiful dress that I received from them – just in case you want it too ;).
