I know it’s been AGES since I wrote a proper blog post – things have been really crazy with my wedding being less than 2 weeks away! I just have to share these awesome clothing items with you though!
A few months back, I stumbled upon Rosetic. I am often wary of buying clothing online, but they had amazing items, and very good reviews, so I decided to order a few goodies that caught my eye. Sadly one of the items I ordered were out of stock and was shipped two weeks later, so that piece has not arrived yet.
For each item I will show the listing image with the purchase link, followed by my review and own images. Please excuse the blurriness of some photos and my un-makeuped face. I did not stylise these items in any way so that I portray them in the most accurate way possible.
This top was the first item I pulled out of the envelope, and was actually the one I was most excited to receive.
So does it look like the picture? Well, not entirely. But I don’t hate it. I actually love it. The only thing that I really don’t like is how the fabric photographs on my phone, haha! The fabric is soft and breathable and the top is very comfortable due to the stretch. The only major issue I have with it is the cravat. It doesn’t look anything like the photo – it’s very one-dimensional, and it also only has one size setting which is too big. Luckily it is removable! I am sure that I can style it nicely though. The sizing issue is very easy to fix as well.
My favourite part of this top is the beautiful filigree pattern on the mesh:
I also love the button details on the sleeves. It also has a corset style lacing detail on the back, but I couldn’t take photos of that on my own.
Of course to style this top, I will tuck it in to a skirt and wear either a waist belt or an underbust corset with it.
This top will certainly see lots of wear in winter! And it will look gorgeous with the next item I’m going to show you!
I actually almost ended up not buying this skirt, but I am so glad I did!
As you can see, this skirt looks pretty much exactly like the image. I must admit though, the fabric isn’t what I thought it would be, but looking at the listing again, it is exactly what it says it is. The skirt is a cotton blend, and sits very comfortably. Because of the fabric, I can definitely wear this in summer as well as in winter. The buttons might be a nuisance to do up every time I put this skirt on though. I really love how figure hugging and comfortable it is though. This is also actually my first proper Victorian looking skirt!
This might sadly be the only item I am a little bit disappointed with.
I knew this dress was made of polyester, but the way it feels on the skin is not comfortable at all. I am hoping that once it’s been through the wash it will be feel a bit softer on the skin (and obviously much less crinkled, because that also made an impact on my thoughts on it). One thing that I am definitely not disappointed with though, is the size of the sleeves! I wanted a dress with MASSIVE bell sleeves and this is perfect. It is, however, a lot shorter than I anticipated, so I shall definitely be wearing this dress with opaque stockings rather than sheer.
I had some mixed feelings about this dress, but I realised why while I was writing this review.
This dress is the same sort of fabric as the previous dress and arrived super crinkled, which explains my instant dislike for it. It is a thinner fabric than the previous one, and definitely breathable and good for summer. For this listing, I didn’t read the material type and was expecting viscose or something similar but it turned out to be polyester. I do think that I can get wear out of this dress though once it’s been though the wash, and if styled correctly. I don’t like the belt that came with it, but I think one of my PVC or corset style waist belts can work really well.
Overall, I am very happy with my order. I’ll definitely be ordering from them again in the new year, but will double check the fabrics before ordering. I ordered all of these items in Medium and they fit true to size.
If you order from Rosetic or have ordered from them before, let me know what you think of their items!
