The Gift of Christmas Style with Quiz ♥

*I was gifted an outfit chosen by one of Quiz's stylists for the purposes of this feature, however, as always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are 100% my own.

I have to admit, I'm not very good with picking out clothes and outfits for myself. After years of battling with my weight and purchasing clothing for my two little boys instead of myself, I've been left feeling clueless on how to dress and what my style is. So, when the opportunity arose from Quiz, to have one of their stylists choose and outfit for me which would be perfect for wearing during the festive season, I was delighted at the prospect of having someone else choose something for me and hopefully fall in love with it.

When the package arrived I was excited to open it and see what was inside and to be completely honest, I was a little bit disappointed as the three items I sent weren't to my taste at all and the bag and shoes just didn't seem to go with the jumpsuit at all. However, I tried to be positive, after all, I could try on the pieces and absolutely fall in love with them - you never know until you see it on and all that.

I've never worn a jumpsuit before so that was a new piece for me. I've seen others wear them and look super stylish - I'm not sure if I'm the same! I do love the material of the jumpsuit and the glitter in it is perfect for the festive season. The tie and the front is a nice detail and I love that it has pockets. It's super comfy to wear and if it weren't for the fact that it doesn't completely cover my boobs - I have to wear a camisole underneath, I may have felt a bit more confident wearing it.

The heels and bag I was sent match each other, but really aren't to my taste. I also don't think they go with the glittery jumpsuit at all as that's quite festive and these have more of a summery vibe to them. It's such a shame too as I really do love embroidered pieces but the colour of these just isn't me.

I'm actually quite sad that I didn't really like the outfit sent to me by the Quiz stylist because there's a Quiz section in my local Debenhams store and the outfits are absolutely stunning. I love the glamourous vibe there is to their clothing and their sequin dresses are just beautiful and so perfect for Christmas.

I really am appreciative of my gifted outfit from Quiz and may muster up the confidence to wear the jumpsuit when I go out for dinner and drinks with friends over Christmas. It's totally different to what I would have picked for myself - I'm usually a dress girl, but it's nice to have a change and I'm glad it's super comfy too. Plus, a little bit of sparkle is always great for Christmas time!


  1. Totally know what you mean with them not going together. But I absolutely love the jumpsuit. It's so pretty x

    1. Thank you! I do like the sparkle of the jumpsuit, it's SO comfy to wear too x

  2. I love the jump suit! The shoes and bag are pretty but a little summery. Some plain black or block coloured shoes would look lush xx

    1. Thank you Laura. Yeah I think they're most definitely summery rather than festive. I think I have some silver heels somewhere that'll go perfect with it :) x
