Boohoo, for those non-UK folks who don’t know is a massive online shopping site. It’s similar to NastyGal or ASOS, but with lower prices.

They reached out to me with a very interesting idea, but part way through it kind of fell apart to be honest. There was meant to be a giveaway of a backpack with a travel wardrobe inside for a reader- enough for a MONTH of travel! They gave me a few samples to try out so I could tell you guys a little more about them. Although the giveaway fell through, they are giving all my readers a 20% discount with the code HIPPIEINHEELS on the clothes in the “blogger shop“.

A little show and tell of Boohoo’s clothes

I am NOT a fashion blogger nor am I a model so let’s not give me too hard of a time for my lack of being Miranda Kerr. My friend took some photos of me and thank god for her, because I don’t think Ben would have been up to the task. She lives in this gorgeous old Portuguese house, so we took the photos there.

boohoo giveaway travelBoohoo asked me to pick out a capsule wardrobe, which I did on their site.  A capsule wardrobe basically means that the clothes will be easily mixed and matched to make up even more outfit options, which they pointed out is great for travelers. Other than the items here, there are 30 more pieces I’ve picked to make a capsule wardrobe which you can see on the Boohoo site under my blogger capsule wardrobe profile.

I have written quite a few posts about how to dress in India, in Europe, and tips about boho-chic designers that I love abroad. So, although I love writing about travel, I’m pretty fashion obsessed.

So, I’m really bummed that the give away was canceled because that was the reason I did this partnership. No time in life to dwell, but want to be straight forward with you guys on the give away falling through. You can still get 20% off from the “travel wardrobe”, so I guess for my UK readers that might be worth posing awkwardly in these clothes ; Have fun shopping!
