Shopping SHEIN {tips & tricks}

September 18, 2018

Being affordable fashion bloggers, Tee and I are always looking for stores, online or in person, that cater to quality clothes for a great price. As you know some of our favorite places to shop are Marshalls and TJ Maxx because not only are they affordable, they have amazing brand names too. When we’re shopping online we’re always trying to scoop up the best deals and steals! We totally agree with investing in timeless pieces and accessories, but when it comes to more trendy items we really don’t see any reason to splurge!

One of our favorite online retailers to shop is Shein. I get a TON of questions whenever I post a Shein item. People want to know if it’s legit, well-made, etc. and I totally understand why! Shein is SO cheap, it makes other affordable fashion retailers look like Gucci. And I love shopping their stuff, but it definitely takes some technique to get pieces you’ll love! We thought we’d share a few tips and tricks on how to best shop their site for super cute, affordable, trendy pieces!

Read Reviews

Shein reviews are legitimately like a lifeline when shopping! I always focus on pieces that have a ton of reviews and photos. This way you can get a better idea on size, length, and material quality. The photos are super helpful because you can get different ideas on how to style the pieces as well. If the item doesn’t have any reviews and you’re still loving it then…..

Today we’re styling two of our favorite cozy cardigans from Chicwish. We know they will be on constant repeat during the fall and winter months! They’re neutral and sooo soft. We’re sharing two different ways to style them-cute, casual and dressed up for a night out or work.

Date Night // OOTN

August 23, 2018

With the weekend just around the corner we are ready for cute Saturday night outfit inspo! Whether you’ve got dinner & drinks planned, or casual daytime fun, we have the outfit for you.

We are partnering up with Chicwish to share some super cute date night looks! Chicwish has seriously become one of our favorite online shops-they have the cutest dresses & tops.

Dressy Date Night

This gorgeous little black dress is perfect for a dressy night out! It is the nicest quality and I love the sheer polka dot details. It would be the perfect dress to transition into fall because the sleeves are long, but sheer.

     I styled this dress with some black lace up pumps and blue earrings for a pop of color, but you could even keep it classic with a pair of nude heels.

Casual Date Night

If you have a more casual date night planned or even a day date, this top is for you! Tee fell in love with the bell sleeves and the cute tie details. You can never go wrong with blue & white stripes!

Tee styled this top with some distressed denim and nude flats, but you could totally dress it up with a pretty skirt and heels! Once some cooler weather kicks in, it’ll look great with some dark denim and nude ankle boots. Such a versatile piece!

We’d love to hear your upcoming weekend plans!

Event Ready with Chicwish

July 31, 2018

After my closet reorganization post I’ve really been trying to ‘shop’ my own closet. I feel like it is so easy to have an event come up and feel the need to go out and buy something new. It is nice to have a versatile dress in your closet that you can just grab for an upcoming event. You know it will work for so many different weddings, parties, showers, or date nights and you don’t have to run out and buy something last minute!

Today we’re featuring two gorgeous dresses {that won’t break the bank!!} and will carry you through all your upcoming events, from summer into fall!

Both of these dresses are from Chicwish, a women’s clothing brand featuring some of the most beautiful dresses ever at affordable prices {can i get an AMEN?!}. I’ve always seen Chicwish dresses on Pinterest but never really took the plunge. I wasn’t sure if they’d be as gorgeous in person, but they seriously are!

Closet Organization on a Budget

July 30, 2018

I love the place we live in, but it is seriously lacking in the closet/storage space! Now being the clothes lover that I am I have to get kind of creative when organizing my closet space. I don’t use any dressers and have all of my items solely in this closet, which is like a mini walk in.

Strategically organizing it has been key! If you don’t see your clothes, your forget about them and never end up wearing them. At least that’s how it is for me. So here are a couple tips that hopefully can help you organize your own closet space to make the most out of what you have!
