Dressing Up During Lockdown

•Sponsored post, gifted items•

10 weeks of lockdown, hey? As the rules begin to relax a little here in the UK, I have still been spending the majority of my time at home in our back garden, working, playing with the kids, sunbathing and, if I’m being honest, recording TikToks (yep, I’m addicted).

FemmeLuxe recently sent me across some pieces, which I featured in my post about finding my over thirties style, and I was given the chance to order a few more items from their website, giving me the perfect excuse to get dressed up and have an impromptu photoshoot in the garden with Ed as my faithful Insta-Husband.


I absolutely love a good LBD. I wore my other FemmeLuxe black minidress on my birthday during lockdown, and this Black Velvet dress will be perfect for a dinner date after things are back to ‘normal’ again. The material feels amazing, so soft and comfortable to wear. The cut is flattering, although it is a little loose on the chest area, as I am only a B cup but ordered a size 12 as I have big hips and thighs (so bear this in mind if you have the same body type).

The Slinky Red One

I must admit, I do love how I look in red, it seems to be my colour and brings out the blue of my eyes. I have a few red dresses already but what drew me to this Red Square Neck Ruched Bodycon dress was that it was long sleeved, making it a little more demure – perfect for drinks with the girls post lockdown. I love the flattering neckline of this one, as it gives me the illusion of a bigger chest, and the material is really forgiving. I got this dress in a size 10 as it is stretchy, and it fits really well.

The Blue Bodycon

I saw this Royal Blue Ruched Cowl Neck Bodycon dress whilst browsing the site and I would have normally skimmed past but Ed recently told me that he loves me in blue, so I thought I would give it a go, and I am really happy that I did – I love the colour, which again makes my eyes pop, and it will be great for special occasions. I will probably pair it with a blazer and strappy black heels, and a simple necklace.

The PU Corset Dress

This Black PU Cupped Corset Bodycon mini dress took me right out of my comfort zone but I actually love it! I have been plagued by low self esteem for the majority of my adult life, and it feels amazing to now have the confidence to wear dresses like this. The PU faux leather material is actually comfortable to wear, which I wasn’t expecting, and I found it flattering – emphasising my curves and skimming over areas that I don’t like. The cupped detailing on the bust is also brilliant for those with a smaller chest like me.

FemmeLuxe have a fantastic range of Bodycon dresses on their website, suitable for all occasions, or if you fancy something a little more relaxed during lockdown, their loungewear and slogan tees are also fantastic!
