The first item that I got was an embroidered floral bomber jacket. This jacket was originally sold for $44 but is now sold out on the site.

This floral jacket features a colorful embroidered pattern on a black base, with a silver metallic zipper, round neckline, and boxy fit. The style is quite interesting, blending the edgy chic look of the slightly-oversized, boxy fit with the delicacy and intricacy of the floral embroidery.

This jacket adds a twist on the casual bomber-style silhouette with the elegant and feminine embroidery, and it looks great when paired with solid colors and simple pieces. Since the unique design makes it such a statement piece, it pairs nicely with a casual T-shirt-and-jeans ensemble.

Quality-wise, this jacket does not disappoint. The fabric is thick and sturdy, the zipper works well, and the jacket provides a decent amount of warmth along with the eye-catching style. My only complaint regarding the quality is that the material, as with most embroidered items, tends to get caught rather easily, so just be a bit careful with it. Otherwise, it's a fairly-priced, quality piece!

Sizing-wise, the jacket fits me pretty well for the most part. The fit is just like that on the model, but the sleeves are a bit too short for my liking. I'm not crazy about the boxy look, but it's accurate to the store photos so I can't really complain about that.

Overall, this floral bomber jacket met all my expectations! I wish the sleeves were a little longer, but everything else about it is great.

(I paired this jacket with the next item that I'll be reviewing, so the pictures of the outfit are found at the end of this post!)

The second item that I received was a pair of high-waisted ripped white skinny jeans. These jeans, sold in sizes S-XL, cost $20 per pair.

I got these jeans in size S, which fits true to the measurements provided but has quite a bit of stretch to it as well. I picked size S knowing that it'd be quite small, but with the stretchiness of the fabric, it still ends up fitting comfortably.

My main concern with buying white pants (or white clothing in general) online is that it often ends up being sheer or partly sheer, but these white jeans are made of an opaque fabric, so they're not sheer at all! That being said, they are tight-fitting, so keep that in mind.

The quality is pretty good, though there are quite a few threads around the distressed portions, and the cutouts at the knees will probably stretch out with wear. The zipper can be a bit tricky, but I like the fabric, which is a combination of polyester and spandex, giving it more stretch than your average jeans. The length is good for me, though it might be a bit short if you're significantly taller.

I've been looking for a nicely-fitting pair of white jeans for quite a while now, and I absolutely love these! They're comfortable, stylish, and form-fitting, and the style works well with nearly anything. The distressed accents and big cutouts at the knees give it a grunge-y vibe, adding an edgy flair to even the simplest of outfits.

And, finally, here are some photos of the jacket and the jeans!

Overall

I'd say this was a pleasant first experience with Make Me Chic. Their items are true to their photos and descriptions, and the quality of their clothing is pretty good for the price! They've got a nice selection of cute and relatively-affordable fashion picks, so definitely check them out!
