The Weekend Review: Please help to 'Accessorize my Outfit'!

It's getting to the end of the summer term at work and this means only one thing, the epic end of term party! Teachers love a good night as it means an escape from being well behaved all day. This year is the first year for a while where I am not pregnant or returning from maternity leave. This time? I'm 'normal!'. Wahoooo. Pass moi le Malibu!

As you know from my Mummy's Army bits I love a flowery dress and as it's a night out I wanted a statement necklace to jazz it up a bit. Obviously when I was approached by Accessorize my Outfit to review their fab website I jumped at the chance! The concept is simple but aces. Basically you send them a picture of a dress or top or outfit you want to wear. They then issue this out to loads of accessory companies who will look for something to match it! You don't even have to leave the house!


This is the picture I sent. It's me on the right with my lovely friends Rachael and Claire, at Claire's recent 30th party. I then got lots of different companies sending me their ideas by email of what would go with my outfit. It was brilliant! I asked for necklaces and I got everything from lovely delicate butterfly necklaces to huge statement necklaces. I settled on this peachy statement one from Diva Eva Couture. I LOVE IT!! It arrived by special delivery in the cutest little bag and pink polka dot paper. It matches the dress brilliantly and I have already worn it with a few other dresses. Perfect for the summer.



What I love most about Accessorize my Outfit is that it is ideal for Mums. Now I've got two tiny tots not only am I completely devoid of any time whatsoever, but also I don't know about anyone else but being preggers or raising some little children for four years I literally have no clue what is fashionable! But they really helped. The range of accessories sent by email were lovely. Most matched and a few were not my cup of tea but overall I ended up having to choose from four different necklaces. All statement obv. 


I will defo be using Accessorize my Outfit again. The necklaces I were sent to peruse on my computer at my leisure (during boy nap time!) were really lovely and reasonably priced. And I loved the idea of them actually looking at my dress, with some of the companies including the dress next to the necklace in the emails so you could really see what they looked like together. And also a few of the companies put the reasoning behind why they thought the necklace would suit the dress. Overall? A brill treat for a knackered Mum who wants to look nice!

Go and pop over to the Acccessorize my Outfit website to see how they can help you look super lovely. The company supports Mums in business and a lot of the companies they use are Mummy entrepreneurs.


I was asked to trial this website in return for a necklace of my choice. 
But as per usual...
I would say if I didn't like it!
We're going on an adventure
