Boutiquetoyou: Item review

As you can tell today's blogpost is an item review from
I just received my items today and I thought I would give you my thoughts on the products. 

The first item I'll be talking about is this GORGEOUS House Of Harlow 1960 Pyramid Station Necklace in Mint Green. 

This necklace will be your go to necklace to brighten up any outfit with its easy to wear colour and style this necklace will be a hit with everyone. 
The necklace is made out of 14 kt yellow gold plating.  
The colour of the necklace is a little darker in person that it shown on the website picture.  I would say Nicole Richie has hit the nail on the head with this House Of Harlow necklace as it one of the more affordable pieces in her collection as it is only priced at £45 / $75  which I think of a necklace of this quality and craftsmanship looks far more expensive that it actually is.

 This necklace will be a great layering piece with any other House Of Harlow accessories you may own or any other pieces of jewellery  you might have, It will look great with jeans, leggings, skirts or shorts as well T-shirts or a white button down blouse to add a bit of colour to any outfit.  

The last Boutique To You item I ordered was this STUNNING Cleobella backpack perfect for any occasion like a music festival or a day trip to the beach. This bag is very vibrant  and functional piece to have in any closet. 

NOTE: This bag has been HANDMADE in Bali from pure ikat cotton with a natural canvas lining so no two bags will be alike. 

The details of the bag include:  

A hand dyed iKat aztec design

A drawstring closure with a braided tassle trim

A zipped interior pocket 

Fringe detailing with Chinese Kepeng coin 

Adjustable braided straps

Here is a overview of the bag

Here are the dimensions of bag for any of you who would like to know. 
Color: Ikat
Material: 100% Cotton
Measurements: 14.5" High, 13" Wide, 12" Deep

You can purchase the bag for $139.00 / £83.40 from

  Since the bag is made out of 100%  cotton which isn't exactly the most practical living here in the UK but I will use this bag regardless what the weather may be. 

The bag is a a very fun but useful accessory for any fashion loving girl like myself, it will add a ton of colour and fun to any outfit you're wearing.
