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?

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!

I’ve been looking for an oversized sweater to add to my wardrobe and this one fit the bill. The soft grey color will be perfect to match with practically everything in my fall/winter wardrobe. The longer sleeve length is great for a makeshift glove. Best of all, the wool is woven in a way that won’t pill and it’s not itchy! I styled the sweater for a casual look but can easily transition it to a daytime/office look without looking frumpy. I would simply layer it with a white button down and a midi length pencil skirt to balance out the top.

Update: the sweater is already on sale and will be an additional 50% off!

Ankle crop distressed jeans – AG {on sale!} (similar style here & here {under $50})

Style: Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots & similar options starting at $39.99!

style trend comment

Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots and other wallet friendly options | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

There’s a good reason that the Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots are once of the most popular choices this season. It has a low heel and is more of a riding boot style but also has the benefit of a leg-hugging over-the-knee style. These boots are an investment for your closet but how can you deny the stretchy suede and leather footbed and slip prevention with the rubber sole? If you’re new to over-the-knee boots and want to try out the style to see if it’s for you, or if you want options that are more budget friendly, look at the round up below which starts at $39.99!

ONE {$39.99!}

TWO {under $60}

THREE (save $50 off retail), {7 color choices here}

FOUR {comes in a rich burgundy color, too!}

FIVE {33% off!}
