Sézane review

Hi lovelies,

Well most of you are probably familiar with the Parisian clothing brand Sézane. I heard, read and watched so many good reviews on them, so I was dying and eying for their products for a while. I do think Morgan Sezalory and her team really creates beautiful and quality pieces, that are made to last so they believe in the whole fundamential of slow fashion and concious shopping. The prices are higher than fast fashion, but they are well priced if you compare them to other brands in this league. I was saving up quality pieces and finally they had a free shipping before Christmas, so I went ahead and placed an order from my wishlist. I have registrated and saved my favourites on their site for a while, but I decided to go for the ones I was most wanted.

Yeah, the biggest disadvantage of online shopping that you never really sure what you will get until it arrives to your home. I have find their website simply stunning and well organized (I have used their French one), easy to use and order. So I have placed my order on the 15th December, it is took them to prepair 3 days, I have received a shipping notification from DHL on the 18th and received the package today, so on the 21rst. I’m obsessed with the super cute packaging, which I tried to photograph …

solid touch of personalization, also a great marketing tool

I have find the packaging really attentive and eco friendly, even the tags (see it below) draw your attention to the recycling, the materials they used (also recycled) and their return policy. Everything here made of recycled paper. 10/10


N°1

GASPARD 

Gaspard is French for Sexy.

Our signature jumper is perfectly versatile. Reversible, it can be worn as a cardigan or as a jumper to reveal a sublime

glimpse of your back with its ‘joli décolletage.’

I was their number 1 essential knitwear the Gaspard in Ecru. I wanted to have a versitle, wearable and soft cardigan for a while due to its pearl bottoms I was looking for the nude or the ecru, but a few months ago I was decided and voted for the Ecru. I have choosed my usual size, S. I love to looking behind the label, I read on their site that is more than 70% from ntural fabric and it is made in Italy.

Gaspard is really a classy, timeless piece of Sèzane, also lightweight, super soft but warm. Quite versatile as you can wear it vice versa, I even loved more the back with the bottoms. The length is perfect, till the hips, it is a bit off the shoulder, so slightly boxy on me, but the selves are long enough to a taller person like me. I would absolutely recommend to anyone.

N°10

PALOMA

Paloma is French for Perfection. Meet our silk top that goes with everything. Pair with smart trousers, jeans or a floral

skirt… it suits every season.  

My other pick was an othr essential: a black silk camisole. I wanted to upgrade my old H&M top and replace the polyester with something nicer, silk. I was looking for a lot of basics v-neck camisoles, then I have find this tiny little twist on the Sézane one the openwork embroidery along the neckline, which make this basic piece so special. I have selected my usual size too: 36.

Look on try

Maybe size 34 would be more fitted on me, but I would like to wear it tacked into high waisted skirts or trousers, so this will be more casual but yet chic. I have read a few comments complaining about the straps, long and tithe, for my height it is perfect. I love the embroidery on it, it is a delicate twist to a simple camisole. I did not look for shiny silk, so it has been carefully chosen for my wardrobe. Absolutely would recommend that one too. I am really satisfied with my order so cannot wait to have others from the brand Sèzane.

So, What are the others from them are on my wishlist? To tell you the truth, I am not sure when I will get to buy them as they are rather on the spurge side.

April low buy haul

Hi lovelies,

This is the end of an other month, a month when we were mostly locked down so we sent our money on a totally different way: more food and vitamins as we were at home a lot and had time to cook, also due to the Covid19 I had to focus on saving more money for the upcoming 3 months as my salary will be like 50% lower, which is pretty hard to every hospitality worker, but at least I have a job. Firstly I was pretty stressed out of the situation, but now I just let it go by settling a daily routine for myself and investing into my self by studying languages, hotel training (kind of boring so-so), sustainable fashion and business course.

So I was pretty much on the track, only sent 36% of my income on needs instead of the 50%, put 27% on saving account, but I can take even more on that, only send 9,9% on wants:).

Concerning to my wants I was sent some money on my husband’s Nicorette patches, because finally he started to quit smoking:), that is one thing that I am more than happy to support him. We have bought a couple of outdoor plants to the balconies- even more becoming a plant parent…

Skincare: new N.A.E. bio micellar water, I will see how is it work as I have not tired yet…

Makeup: I used to had this is black, now I was repurchased it in brown: the cheap favourite Trend it up No. 1 mascara

As I sent more time at home I realized I need a better mat than polifoam, so I was invest in a Manduka Yoga Mat, which due to arrive next till Tuesday.

So I was pretty much on a low buy side, of course I was looking for some sales or coupons online, but they was not on time at all (strictly according to my wishlist) and I wanted to buy a Sezane Gaspard cardigan secondhand and I constantly wrote to several people on Facebook Market place or Depop and noone answers???! that is crazy. I might need to try on Vestiare Collective, but sometimes people want to sell it for on an even higher than its new retail price,which is also crazy. I need to look for so more whites too.

Xoxo,
