That was the first thing I heard Mum exclaimed when I stepped into my house two weeks ago.
Guess what? It was a parcel from Rock and Retail!
Rock and Retail is the latest addition to my list of favorite blogshops. They conform to a younger age demographic with their bold use of bright colors and unconventional designs such as their signatures -‘Asymmetric Pseudo Two-Piece Top’ and ‘Pleat Front Corset Tie Flutter Sleeves Top’.
Owners of Rock and Retail, Natasha and Joy certainly have a knack for fashion. This is evident from the wide array of fashion styles featured in their online store, and the speed at which these delectable self-manufactured pieces are sold out as soon as they are launched. Pretty impressive for a young blogshop.
To add feathers to their caps, Natasha and Joy are still embracing teenhood. So I’m doubly impressed!
Alright, enough said. Please let me, dear fashion-forward folks, present you Honeyz Fashion Review: Rock and Retail.
Freewheel Urban Tunic (Tumeric)
As seen on Rock and Retail
This tumeric baby clearly exhibits a medley of femininity and playfulness.
In the last ensemble, I tried to pull off an eclectic mix of 80s inspired fashion and bold colors look with a pair of burgundy high waist pants and sienna heels. (All hail color block fashion!)
The first thing I noticed about this top is that it’s true to the color shown on Rock and Retail’s (R&R) website. Usually colors are brighter on the blogshops’ websites than in real life so big thumbs up to that!
The material is soft and very comfortable to wear. It is not sheer at all. I wore a tube top because I found the neckline too low and the sides too wide. Speaking of matching boob tubes, I think this tumeric top will go well with a variety colors such as white, navy, magenta, etc.
Workmanship is great too. Minimal loose threads found.
I love the flairs on the top as it hides unsightly belly bulges and gives the illusion of a well-endowed bust.
Overall, I would give this 4.5 Honeyz crowns. It’s a steal!
V-neck Knitted Pullover in Mustard
As seen on Rock and Retail
This adorable knitted pullover injects both conservative appeal and playful seduction into one’s style. I know that sounds like an oxymoron but it really does! Especially with the long sleeved feature and the loosely knitted material.
The material feels like cashmere wool and is pretty warm on the skin so actually, it’s a little impractical to wear to the beach. Not even during winter, as it’s not thick enough (even though it has a sort of winter aesthetics).
But! Fashion reigns over functionality for me so I still think its great for the beach. Don’t you agree?
Workmanship is not that great as I found strands of wool threads hanging on the hem of the top. (Not a pretty sight.)
I have a pretty long torso so I always find it hard to find tops that flatters my body shape. I thought the length of this top fits me perfectly.

Disclaimer: I know I’m going to sound like a broken record but I would like to emphasize again that Honeyz fashion reviews are NOT advertorial posts. I do not endorse any of those brands featured. Rather, I’m trying to show you how normal girls (girls with non-supermodel statures) look like in clothing from these famous boutiques. This is to aid you in making informed purchase decisions when it comes to updating your fashion wardrobe. 🙂
