FM40 Style - Very Exclusive 50% Sale and Competition Time!!! - NOW CLOSED


Do you miss My Wardrobe, I certainly do,  I purchased quite a few iconic buys from there including my Burberry mac. However, fret no more ..... Sarah Curran, founder and previous owner of My-wardrobe, earlier this year launched a new shopping site called Very Exclusive. Bridging the gap between high street and super high end,  Very Exclusive is your go-to website for affordable luxury, whether it be, clothes, accessories or beauty.

Not only do they stock labels including brands I really like, IRO, J Brand, Elizabeth & James there is free delivery and returns!


Their 50% sale is fully live 
(here) and there are some amazing buys. 

Very Exclusive were very kind and let me pick two of my favourite items from their sale to style. What did I pick?



Firstly, I picked an Equipment shirt, Laura from WIT calls them the Ferrari of shirts and this is what she says about them . 

'Another essential to ease you into autumn is the forever chicness of a silk shirt, and when you are talking silk shirts there is only one place to go to: Equipment. I don’t quite know what it is about the Equipment fit, but it looks great on virtually anyone, of any age or size. If you are investing for the first time I would go with a classic black or white with contrasting piping. In fall, wear tucked in your high waist jeans or hang loose over leather leggings. In winter layer under a boyish cashmere V neck sweater or a fur gilet. It’s a pricey buy, but cost per wear it’s a great investment."

To be honest, I was a little nervous about the pockets (with my large bust), but the way the beautiful silk falls and the flatness of the pockets it seems to work and it also gained a compliment off Hubby. 






I love Very Exclusives MD Sarah Curren's own personal style, her style is very simple, chic and accessible, favouring jeans teamed with tank, silk blouse and a blazers or jacket over the top. She makes her fashion statement with oversized jewellery, bags and shoes and hence, there are many amazing shoes on Very Exclusive and more importantly in the sale. I picked a pair of shoes for my second choice. 


The best news is that I also got the chance to pick something for YOU! I think all of us are handbag freaks, so I picked something that will look amazing on your holidays with a pretty white dress for example, this M Missoni raffia bag below. 



So with Very Exclusive, FM40 is doing her first competition and you all have a chance to win this fabulous bag.

  7. Hi, what a competition?! Definitely a tough one, but I've gone for the MCQ Alexander McQueen pleated Knee Length white dress... Love your choices, looking through the site, it must have been quite difficult?! X

  8. Hi Annmarie. What brilliant choices you made. The shoes are so simple and minimal and very 'Working Girl' (as in Clara, not the film with Melanie Griffiths!!). I love the shirt and think it's incredibly flattering although I would have worried about the pockets too. Just shows you need to try things on! I enjoyed browsing the Very Exclusive sale and although very tempted by the Carven Colourblock Dress or the Carven Snakeprint Dress I'd probably also opt for the MiH Phlox top mentioned by Patricia above as I just know I'd get so much wear out of it. Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine! Annabelxx

    Hi Mine would be the Karl Lagerfeld green mini cross body bag - a perfect match to my stans and just the thing to liven up navy/black/white/grey outfits , been looking for the right colour green in any accessory for ages - sad I know but it just looks so much better to me when you have at least two things in your outfit which match and the stans are so comfy I want to wear them everyday!

  16. Hi Annmarie, this is a brilliant post! I would love your Equipment shirt, but it's sold out in my size, so the piece most likely to make it into my shopping bag is the MIH Phlox top which I would wear endlessly with jeans, khakis and shorts, and treasure forever....in fact I may have just convinced myself! xx
