Off the Rack ~ Reviewing the Bolero “Multiwear” Dress

Disclosure: This dress was received as a review sample. All opinions are my own and based entirely on my experience. It’s another new season, which means it’s time for another Bolero Style review! One of Hourglassy’s favorite brands, you can see all our previous Bolero coverage HERE. This time, I’m sharing a new style, the Multiwear Dress. It’s a super clever design in which you can swap out part of it for different fabrics and lengths to get a totally different look! I first saw this dress on the Bolero Instagram, and completely fell in love! The black and yellow made me think of...

Jumping Out of My Comfort Zone

Bolero Beachwear is known for their cute and comfortable clothing designed for curvy bodies. We love how this brand mixes fit, practicality and style. This absolutely wild jumpsuit lives up to this brand’s reputation of making cute clothing that fits curvy people. But I’ll admit, it took me some time to give this jumpsuit the attention it deserved. Like many people, I’m feeling more than a little blue lately. My ideal solution for this would be a COVID-19 cure and dramatic systemic change.

Bust Friendly Bolero Adjustable Neckline Dress with Sleeves by Hourglassy

I’m going to interrupt all the fun in the sun we’ve been having with our swimsuit series to bring you back to the world of work from home. My obsession with Zoom call looks continues–it’s hard to get away from something that’s the equivalent of staring at my reflection in a mirror all day. On one of those days, I realized how much I love the color pop and neckline of my Princess Ella dress from Bolero. There’s one more detail that makes this dress ideal: it has sleeves. I wear my sleeveless adjustable neckline dress all summer long, but for certain work calls, I want...

Off the Rack ~ Reviewing the Bolero Ruffled Romper by Hourglassy

* Please note that the Bolero shop is on vacation August 21 through September 15, so you’ll have a to wait a couple weeks to place an order. Hope you enjoy this review in the meantime! This week, I’m reviewing another great Bolero find—the Ruffled Romper. For some reason this summer, when I’m not in my pajamas all day (hashtag quarantine life), I want to wear nothing but matching top and bottom sets or rompers. I even sewed my own two-piece set and a romper in recent weeks (look for those in upcoming posts). So when Bolero proprietress Patricia offered to...
