The other day I was lucky enough to receive a parcel from Ark Clothing. Up until this point I was un-aware that the website existed, if I am totally honest. I'm not very brave when shopping online and prefer to stick to sites of places I shop on the highstreet such as New Look, or if I'm really daring, Asos.
Ark is, however, a real treasure trove for fabulous brands such as Motel, Brat and Suzie, and another new discovery for me, Hearts & Bows. As you can see, this brand is my style exactly with pastel and floral dresses galore.
One thing I definitely want to mention is how beautifully wrapped the parcel was. Inside the plastic envelope was layers of pink tissue paper protecting the dress and skirt inside.
I don't know about you, but shops that make an extra effort with packaging their goods score automatic brownie points.
I was sent the "Graphite Paris Skirt" which is now hands down the most comfortable skirt I own. I love how it sits on the waist and the shape is brilliant. I know I haven't styled it to it's full potential here, but watch this space for something more exciting!
At £16.99 I also think it's a reasonable price for something a bit different, and the sizing was perfect.
I also received the "Pink Polka Dot Floral Dress" which is £22.99. It's a little bit too short for me to wear just as a dress for daytime, so I added denim shorts. One problem I often have with dresses is that the front is often too low cut, or gapes; that wasn't an issue here and I only added the long sleeve top for warmth!
Prettiest print. Ever.
Ark scores yet more brownie points with me for having affordable postage;
£2.50 within the UK for orders under £30 and FREE for orders of £30 or more.
International shipping is also available.
If you have any enquiries Ark endeavour to get back to you within 1 hour during office hours.
Ark pride themselves on speedy service; just 1-3 days after your order has been processed which means you won't be hanging around long to wear your new clothes.
Definitely a site to visit, and one I will be returning to for when I feel like treating myself.
Many thanks to Ark for the beautiful treats.
And extended thanks to all you wonderful readers and commenters for your continued support. I won't lie, things are hard this week, and you are ALL helping far more than you could know.
I'll hopefully get round to your blogs over the next day or so xxx
