Boux Avenue

Boux Avenue describe themselves as being Born out of a love for lingerie, nightwear and all things beautiful with a desire to bring traditional service, superior fit and outstanding quality to modern and luxurious surroundings. And I have to say I agree with them!

Where else could you (these days) place an order at 10:13 on a Saturday morning and have it delivered before 10am on a Monday morning? That just doesn't happen for the most part unless you are willing to pay extortionate delivery fees, or collect from the store yourself 
So anyway, On Saturday I received an email informing me that I had won a £10 gift card to use with Boux Avenue and so I set off to investigate if there was anything I could afford to get with just the card. The first thing I checked was the postage, after noting it would be £3 I realised I would have £7 to spend. At this point I wasn't too hopeful of being able to find anything for that price, the website has such an elegant and sophisticated feel to it that I assumed it would be out of my budget even if I were to add a payment to the gift card.

I am very pleased to say I was wrong and not just a little wrong, there were many things I could have chosen which were under the value of the card, it was getting quite difficult to pick something out until I hit the Lingerie Accessories section, there I found a possible solution to my main problem with bra's! 
I have, for as long as I can remember, always had a problem with my straps falling off my shoulders and down my arms. I have combated this by tying them together at the back (well, OK, having someone else tie them for me!lol) but these bra converters sound like a good solution for me as well as being useful for in the summer for wearing differently shaped tops while keeping the straps safely tucked away!

After seeing these and deciding I just had to get them I started the ordering process. It was very simple and worked really well. At one point I was asked if I wanted it wrapping or not (green issues about waste) and part of me felt I should say no to the wrappings but the bigger part of me wanted to be girly and have them and I did!
This morning when it arrived it was so pretty, I felt so special opening the boxes, especially the last one, to fine the converters nestled with some scented rose petals. I really cant commend this company highly enough and I really do recommend you take the time to have a look at them and see what they sell, a purchase from them is so much more than just home shopping. They have an impeccable service which really does make you feel like a valued customer and I will be back.
