Not literally…. You don’t get rid of me that easily!
I am sure, like me, you get a little bit excited when you come across a brand that offers plus size clothing that you had not been aware of before! There I sat one evening, quite late, watching the old Goggle Box when up popped an advertisement for Box2! I got straight on to the old Worldwide Web and started to investigate this brand further…..
Box2 is the Brain Child of Nicky Felix, who opened her first store in Brighton back in the 80’s. Over a period of time, Nicky recognised the need for larger sizes, and decided to focus exclusively in this direction, offering Fashion for all women size 14-34! It was in 2005 the website was launched, and has developed into the new and improved website you experience today! It is clear that Nicky has a real passion and belief in her business, and it shows….. I took it upon myself to make contact with the Company, and we have been talking ever since, you really do get the personal touch from Box2!
I was very kindly offered the chance to review an item from their current catalogue, and with the change in Seasons upon us, I thought it would be nice to look at the something from their Winter Warmers, so I asked if I could review one of their wraps. I love a wrap, as sometimes this time of year it’s too cold to go out without a coat, but not cold enough to bring the Winter coat out of storage. I particularly liked the Kasbah Wraps, but left the choosing of the specific one to the lovely Hayley at Box2…. She did me proud! I was sent the Kasbah Jersey Knit Animal Print in black & stone! Those that know me will know I am quite happy to embrace my inner Pat Butcher/Kat Slater with a bit of animal print (much to my husband’s disgust) and in my very humble opinion, this kind of print is a true classic and will always be in fashion! At £45.00 some may feel it is a little pricey, but I have to say that I was very impressed with the quality, I have other knitted wraps I have bought over the years, and this is most definitely my go to wrap of choice from now on for warmth and quality!
I was going to get some pics outside, but just as we were about to venture out the door the heavens opened and thus, you have indoor pics on this occasion….
Close up of of the print and knit to give you an idea of the quality….
I have also got my eye on these lovely Robell Black Faux Leather Leggings, but I think these will have to wait until the New Year as buying Chrimbo presents is now going to be top priority!
Did you know about Box2 before?
