Outfit: Fawn Silk Sweatshirt

Last Friday I opened my emails to find a lovely little message from Fawn Clothing titled 'Claire I'm obsessed with your blog'... I was of course intrigued & double clicked straight away! The email written by Fawns' founder Iram Imtiaz asked me to review the companys' website, analyse its usability & get back to her with my thoughts. I was also privileged enough to be entitled to a little bit of discount - Which is always a bonus right? 
I found the website really easy to navigate around & super easy to use: I only had one iddy biddy criticism about the payments page, which when I notified Iram she absolutely lovely about, and said it will be rectified within the next week, which should be anytime now!
Fawn stock some absolutely stunning pieces from handbags to party dresses to casual tops, all of which 'evoke a luxury feel and encompass high-end-looking designs at affordable prices'. The website contains a wide variety of items, but I knew pretty much instantly that this Bryony tiger print silk sweater was the one for me!

Fawn only 'had its official launch in August this year' which is really surprising considering how well thought out the website is & how professional Iram is. It's been an absolute pleasure getting to know Iram & you can tell she has the 'strongest passion for both business and fashion' - It absolutely shines though! She's super grateful and realises the importance of bloggers & our 'workable feedback on how to improve her business(which is so so lovely to hear as a blogger!) As a business Iram has huuge ideas for Fawn, conveying her 'ultimate aspiration is to build Fawn into a well-loved global brand for fashionistas'. And let me tell you... I think she's going to do brilliantly!!

I took delivery the day after ordering this sweater (how often does that happen?) and was given regular updates from Iram of where my order was & how it was progressing. I love little touches like this that make you feel completely valued as a customer & in turn will keep me coming back. Everything was packaged beautifully in black crepe paper with a cute little bow on the front - I was like a kid at Christmas!

The quality of the sweater is just fab! Even though it's a pull over it still feels really girly & feminine because its so silky. The cuffed sleeves & bottom keep this looking quite casual & cool, channeling a sports luxe feel - Which if you know me, is always a winner! I would say though if you are quite tall I can imagine this sweater riding up slightly, but It's the perfect fit for me as I'm only 5 foot 4. The print is just gorgeous, I don't really own anything like this & it's quite a statement piece for me. My only wish is that it was a little bit warmer... Maybe I need a miracle with that one though! I've styled this quite simply, as for me the print is pretty bold, I'm wearing my trusty leather look jeans, biker jacket & heaps of gold jewellery. I wasn't sure whether this would be too much leather in one look, but I think because there's such an array of textures it works really well. 

As a little thank you I'd love to share with you my discount code for Fawn Clothing which entitles you to 20% off your next order! You can use it up untill 30th November and as many times as you wish! Just in time for the festive season & Fawns new selection of party dresses!
