DUNE LONDON BRAND REVIEW

Chic Stylish Practical

A few months ago, I finally bought my first pair of Dune London pumps. I have seen the brand’s advertisements on social media, but I have been holding out on a purchase. I have high standards when it comes to high heels. They must be comfortable, chic, elegant, and made with high-quality materials.

I thought for a long time and finally decided to buy a pair that caught my eye: Cabanna Multi.


I prepared myself not to expect much and be ready for a letdown. To my surprise, Dune’s pumps turned out to be comfortable and stylish. I have paired them with jeans, pants, dresses, and skirts. I can safely say that these pumps are comfortable and chic. 

Pros
Comfortable
Affordable
Fast shipping
Excellent quality for the price

Cons
Synthetic sole
Synthetic lining
I will have to see how they stand the test of time

I think the brand is worth attention. I am eyeing another pair in the same style but different design.

 

TATA HARPER BRAND REVIEW

Want To Love But Can Not

 I want to love Tata Harper's products so much, but I simply cannot recommend them. While all the products that I tried smell lovely, have a good consistency and look enticing, I did not feel like they did anything for my skin. I did not feel that my skin was moisturized, nourished, or improved. And considering the price, I rather buy other products in my must-have lineup. 

Pros

  • absorbs quickly

  • smells lovely

  • clean green skincare

  • 30-days returns (I returned eye cream with no problems)

 

Cons

  • Price (cleanser costs almost $90)

  • Little Effectiveness (I saw no change)

  • Irritation (an eye cream irritated my eyes, I returned it)

 

What I tried:

Clarifying Cleanser; Restorative Eye Creme; Creme Riche; Retinoic Nutrient Face Oil, Resurfacing Mask, Beautifying Face Oil

I wanted to share my thoughts about Madewell’s Jeans. In one sentence - I love them. Quality and design make these jeans worth every penny.

They are on-trend, and I get compliments all the time when I wear them.

  1. Limited style availability at stores

  2. Some styles are too long; might require alterations

  3. Limited color selection 

 

Pros

  1. Amazing material quality

  2. Exciting designs

  3. Trendy and classic options

  6. The brand is focusing on sustainable production

VINCE  BRAND REVIEW

Effortless Must-Haves

Hello, Everyone! It is not a secret that I am a big fan of Vince clothing brand, offering California-inspired effortless styles. Vince's pieces are practical, chic, yes, a bit expensive (depending on the budget). But there is fantastic quality and design that carries through every single piece.

 

I have a few sweaters, tops, and skirts from Vince. They are elegant and chic, making it easy to put together an elegant outfit. 

 

If you are interested in the brand, I put together a list of cons and pros.

 

Pro/For

  1. Vince's understated pieces can be easily dressed up or down

  2. Each piece is made with quality materials

  3. The pieces are made to fit a wide range of bodies and shapes

  4. Each piece is designed to last for years

  5. The brand follows trends but keeps it wearable 

  6. Colors and prints are neutral and easy to mix and match

  7. End of season sale is the perfect time to score a fantastic Vince item

 

Con/Against

  1. Vince pieces are expensive

  2. Some items are made from synthetic material

  3. Some things depending on the material, cling to the body

  4. Many items must be dry cleaned

 

I hope my lists help you decide if you want to get yourself a fresh Vince piece. Vince's clothes are truly superb and have a massive potential of becoming your go-to staples, especially if you buy a cashmere cardigan or a wool coat.
