I have always wanted a maxi dress and this is the perfect time to wear them. They're long enough to cover your legs, but still cool enough to keep you feeling the breeze. I recently made a purchase at an online store called Boohoo which is based in the UK. I have purchased from them before and even won a $50 credit from them last year in a Twitter contest they were having, but I wanted to let you guys know about my shopping experience with them because they have thee most amazing maxi dresses.
Checkout process with Boohoo
There is SO MUCH STUFF ON THIS WEBSITE THAT I WANT TO BUY!!!!! However, I tried to keep my cool by only purchasing maxi dresses. I had 5 different dresses in my cart. Each dress was priced at $16, but I used a discount code to receive 30%. Instead of paying $80, I only had to pay $56. I was contacted the next day to learn that my credit card had not been charged for one of the items that was out of stock, which was cool.
How long does Boohoo take to ship?
I ordered my dresses on May 1st and received them May 12th, which was understandable considering Boohoo is located in the UK. It took 11 days for me to receive my dresses which I think was the same amount it took to receive my previous purchase from them. Keep in mind that I live in the Midwest of the USA. They have free shipping if you spend over $40 so I did not have to pay for shipping.
What does Boohoo's packaging look like?
They shipped the items I purchased in a polybag with their design/logo on it. I absolutely love the design of their bag.
The Items I bought from Boohoo
I received 4 maxi dresses and they look AMAZING on me. However I will say that they show every curve on my body which is different for me since I am slowly changing the way that I dress. They are extremely comfortable. I bought 1 Sandy Scoop Neck Maxi Dress in the color coral, 1 Phoebe Racer Front Sleeveless Maxi Dress, and 2 Laura Racer Back Maxi Dress in the colors plum and khaki. The Laura maxi dresses come with a slender brown braided belt too, so that's a plus. These dresses are made out of 95% Viscose and 5% Elastane. They are not see through at all of course it maybe because of the colors I picked too.

**Make sure that when you buy from Boohoo, you pay attention to the US sizing because it is different from UK sizing. For me I wear a US size 4 which is equivalent to a UK size 8.
Would I recommend shopping at Boohoo?
I would definitely recommend shopping at Boohoo for not only maxi dresses, but other pieces like jumpsuits, blouses, pants, skirts, and other things. They have a lot of different things on their website and I'm sure you'd be able to find a lot of things to buy because I know I did.
Hope this review helped you guys. I will begin posting ootd's (outfit of the day) and creating lookbooks with the clothes I own soon, so be on the look out for that on my blog and on my Instagram.
Now I'd like to know about you guys..
Do you wear maxi dresses? How do you style them?
