Happy Thanksgiving eve, friends! Hoping you all have plans to spend time with friends and family and also, stuff yourself silly!

I have a few family gatherings that I’ll be attending and what better way to stay comfortable and warm than in this beautiful sweater? I love the asymmetrical hem, multi-directional ribbing, and the bold gold buttons (design also comes in a poncho and dress). There’s something unique about the combination of navy and gold which probably is why I love this sweater so much. I paired it with white jeans to offset the navy and black colors but it would also work if paired with a white button down or tee underneath (perhaps, also an asymmetrical one that cuts in the opposing direction).

P.S. Don’t forget to come back during the Thanksgiving holiday stretch – I’ll be posting sales and promo codes for you to take advantage of!

P.P.S Today’s the last day for the $270 Nordstrom giveaway – have you entered?


SHOP THE LOOK:

Navy asymmetrical sweater with gold button hardware – Rag & Bone
{choose to ship to USA, pay in GBP – save ~$75!} (similar style here & here)

White straight leg jeans – J.Crew (similar style here & here)

Leopard flats – BP (similar style here & here)

Lately, I’ve been looking for classic tops with a modern twist. When I came across this top, I definitely loved how it looked. But, I was hesitant to purchase from the retailer since it was based internationally. In the past, I’ve come across some other fast fashion websites and wasn’t sure if (1) they were reputable (2) if I was going to get what was pictured on their website. After doing my research, I moved forward with placing my order.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH SHEIN
While looking at their selection of tops, I noticed that various tops had different measurements and the difference was quite drastic between two tops that looked similar. Unsure of what size to order since it was unclear to me where the measurements were taken from (i.e biceps?), I hopped onto chat with their customer service. She was quite helpful and even sent me a visual of where to measure.

Since it was shipping from China, I expected it to take a bit of time getting to me (~2 weeks). Surprisingly, it came much sooner (note: the return address on the package was from New Jersey).

I’ve tried to purchase clothes from Asian retailers while abroad and it always seemed off. Most likely it’s because it’s cut for a different body type. I was pleasantly surprised when this top fit well. The material is nice especially considering the price of the top. And, when I pull it out of the wash, no ironing is needed!

I’ve had a good experience with this first order, and am hoping to order from them again. Hope these tips help you – let me know your experiences in the comments below!

Style: fall florals

style trend comment

Style: fall florals | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

As we go into the cooler weather, the tendency is to gravitate towards darker colors and hues and put florals away until the spring. This season, designers are embracing both by featuring a lot of fall florals – think dark colors against colorful prints. I’m loving this compromise and it’ll be the perfect piece to brighten you up when the rain and cold weather are here.


SHOP THE LOOK:

1. Floral off-the-shoulder dress

2. Dark floral dress

3. Floral swing dress

4. Floral off-the-shoulder top

5. Floral bomber blazer

6. Floral peplum sweater

7. Dark floral swing top
