Popbasic Melodie review – December 2013

Hooray! I was super excited to receive the Popbasic Melodie Collection with plenty of days to spare before Christmas. The dress made the perfect Christmas Day outfit, so I was super glad it arrived in time.

First look

The products

Melodie Dress
RRP $75

Popbasic says – ‘Inspired by the beautiful costumes from The Nutcracker, this dress is a staple any time of the year. Pair it with your prettiest jewellery during the festive season, or with sandals for the Summer. Lined. Elastic waistband. 100% chiffon polyester.’

The dress wasn’t as bright as I thought it would be. It is more of an orange red than a Christmas red but I have decided that’s more practical anyway! A soft red is way easier for me to wear than a bright out there red. I love that you can either wear the frills at the front or at the back. I wore it with the frills front for Christmas Day. I felt super christmassy 🙂

Sugar Plum Earrings
RRP $15

Popbasic says – ‘A lovely, yet simple alternative to a statement necklace. Pair with your Melodie Dress and coat to the ballet, or with patent pumps for New Year festivities. Studs. 100% alloy and acrylic stone.’

Ohh pretty! These definitely fit either a night at the ballet or New Years sparkle. I wore these on Christmas Day to match the dress. These earrings are unlike anything I own already, which is always a thumbs up in my books.

How much does it cost?

This collection cost $70US and this price includes free shipping world wide. Which is a lovely bonus! This worked out to $80.19 Aussie Dollars.

Does it ship to Australia?

Popbasic ships world wide for free 🙂

Was it worth it?

Yes I love having a new dress for Christmas Day! The dress is well made and feels nice. It will definitely get a few outings to coffee with the girls or a trip to the ballet. I love the ballet 🙂
