sponsored: lookbookstore haul 2

I'm hyped that lookbookstore approached me again to do another review of their items. I picked out another four pretty items that I've also linked so that you can easily find them.   
This is a similar dress to the one previously sold on forever21 It's got lace details at the neck and at the hem as well as major flow and a v-neckline. It is kinda long on me though. I wore it with the straps shortened all the way and it is just above my knees. Also, the dress is a tad sheer so I had to wear some boyshorts underneath. I paired it with a kimono but it would look great with a chunky cardigan as well. It was just too hot and humid to wear anything warm over here. Overall, it is a good dupe but I prefer the original forever 21 one. It looks much nicer, somehow. But if you have missed that one, grab this! 
A basic solid coloured kimono with a twist, featuring cute pink daisies along the opening of the kimono to add that little bit of detail to any outfit. I paired it with the crochet trim tank from debshops and floral shorts. It has a really nice flow to it and would go with a hell lot of things so I definitely recommend this kimono to everyone!
I'm not too happy about this product as it is not exactly as pictured on their website. It is a full faux leather circle skirt with a hidden side zip and studs all over. It is fully lined and the studs are really securely placed, so I have no complaints about that. However, the cutting of the skirt isn't really nice and it doesn't sit nicely on me. I think it runs big so it sits below my belly. Perhaps it would look nicer on someone else? I got the smallest size but I think it would fit someone with a 26" waist better (I'm 23-24" for reference). The skirt is kinda stiff so the pleats are not obvious. As such, I would recommend adding a plaid flannel around the waist to accentuate your waist and give more shape to your body.
I wanted to try out off shoulder tops again so I picked this dainty piece. It's got two tiers of pretty lace and it's fully lined on the inside. I tried pairing it with both shorts and skirts and it looks great! You can even tuck it in so that only the first tier shows. 
I've got another 4 items to review and I will be posting that up soon. Too excited because I adore the items in that one. Keep a lookout!
