What is it about a popped collar that adds a “cool” factor? I’ve long been a fan of the J.Crew School Boy blazers (I own them in 3 colors!) and thought my closet was done with blazers until I saw the Regent line in store. Something about the popped collar (that stays up!) immediately drew me in and was being begged to be bought. So, I caved when I found it on sale and am now the proud owner of this amazingly rich camel-colored blazer. I’ve been wearing it with practically everything since the color is versatile. Next up on my list: buying it in black!


SHOP THE LOOK:

Camel color blazer – J.Crew (similar here & here)

Stripe tee with cuffs – J.Crew (here or here) (similar here & here)

Black skinny jeans – J.Crew (similar here & here)

Black patent bow pump – Salvatore Ferragamo (similar here & here)

With Thanksgiving coming up later this week, the holiday season will soon be in effect. Our family loves sending out holiday cards since it’s a great excuse to get everyone dressed up, and also, why pass up the opportunity to match your dress to the card? Getting that perfect family picture takes some planning, especially if you have young children, so I thought I’d share some tips for you:

• Research for a photographer and if needed, ask if s/he has experience photographing young children. Look at his/her portfolio to see if the style matches with your vision. Also, it make also give you some ideas on locations or set-ups you’d like to replicate as well.

• Check the weather forecast since you don’t want to be outdoors when it’s raining! If you have kids, try to schedule the session earlier in the day. Not-so-tired kids makes for better pictures!

• Look around to see what type of holiday card you might want to get. Will it require a portrait or landscape orientation, or does it require multiple photos? That way you can communicate with your photographer your goals for the shoot

• Have fun! You get to spend time with your family and it’ll be a fun time to reflect on once you get your photos back

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!
