G.E.M Mini Haul and Review!

17th November 2017

A new collection has launched by Lazy Oaf Founder ‘Gemma Shiel’.  So, being a huge fan of all her work, a few new items have arrived at my doorstep.

 So, let’s see whats inside!

Above is a little Thank You card, some cool stickers and a very pretty photograph. On the back of the photograph is a little bit more info about the brand new company….

17-11-17-17-49-15-105_decoGemma Shiel says that she wanted GEM “to be about and celebrate what being a girl is for me. I have always believed and worshiped bad ass front women and girl’s that just do their own fucking thing’.

Honestly, I couldn’t love the concept more, badass women is something I’ve always been mad about, even when I was very young, girl’s who kicked butt always blew my mind!

So, without further a do, lets take a look at the goods!


The first item I knew I wanted was this beautiful GEM Fluffed Up Top. I’ve been dreaming about a top like this forever, and when I noticed this in the sneak peak, I fell head over heels with it.

17-11-17-17-52-22-250_decoHere is a better photo of the fluffy sleeves in a gorgeous hot pink. I love this piece, even though the fur is a little tickly against my arms, I still think its amazing!


The next piece is very out there but its just so dreamy I couldn’t resist! It’s this pretty over sized lilac T’shirt, then with these crazy huge sheer princess sleeves. Its quite long, just like the rest of Lazy Oafs One Sized T-Shirts and I think it would look great tucked into a pastel pink skirt so I might have to try that out!

Next up is another black and pink piece, which is the lace crop top.


Honestly, I wasn’t going to get this one, but a few pals in the Lazy Oaf Facebook Group ended up convincing me in the end and I’m so happy they did!
It’s such a beautiful and delicate piece, it’s also super comfy too!

It really feels and looks super flattering, and it feel so 90’s! I highly recommend people try this one out!

17-11-17-17-54-11-029_deco This last clothing item was a complete last minute decision. The only reason I got this one in the end was because I saw Gemma herself wearing it to the launch party, and it gave me such witchy vibes it ended up going into my basket!


As much I love this piece, when it arrived and I tried it on, I just didn’t feel so fabulous in it. The reason behind this is, the fit is quite odd on me! The sleeves are very large, and the cuffs are oddly tight on me. I just don’t feel like it suites me at all, but its still a pretty piece and I do love the ruffle detail at the bottom and the waist that can be tied so it can be quite fitted.

The last two items are some earrings I also picked up by a brand called Lorelai on Lazy Oafs website. I’ve really been into larger statement earrings recently and I think these fit the bill!


The first are these amazing rainbow earrings in pastel colours with a cute little cloud above it.


The second is this pink and black pair which I think matches the G.E.M collection very well! They have the word FUN written on some pink hearts. So cute!

So that wraps up everything I brought! Honestly, I sort of have mixed feelings about this collection, its so my style and gorgeous but some of the pieces I think need changing on comfort/fit. Lazy Oaf is a more high end brand, so I feel like this is not much to ask if you are paying for something more expensive.

Though, all of it looks amazing on, and its something you absolutely won’t find anywhere else!

Thanks so much for reading, let me know what you think of the collection! xoxo

  1. You look great, I love the way you styled the collection 🙂 I actually think the sheer jacket looks amazing with the Capser dress, and I love the ruffle details. But obviously if the fit doesn’t feel right to you I can totally understand why you wouldn’t want to keep it!

    1. Aw thank you so much!!! 🙂 Yes it suits the Casper Dress nicely, but the fit was odd and it didn’t suit half of my clothes in my wardrobe haha! I just didn’t think it was worth it for the price, maybe I would have kept it if it was a lil cheaper… haha <3

  2. Thanks for this, it’s really useful. You look so pretty in all the pieces but I think you are right about the black ruffle top. You are only tiny and it seems to bury you. Lazy oafs sizes are so hit and miss aren’t they? Love you blog, I will be reading more in the future 🔮 💖💖

    1. Aw thank you so much!!! 🙂 Yes they are so hit and miss, its a little frustrating! It seems like a small is either really tight for me or is somehow huge haha. It sucks you have to pay for returns there too!
