Shopbop Big Event.

    Shopbop's first Big Event of the year has come around.

     Now 15% off $250 (the first tier), doesn't seem like a lot, but it's important to note here that unlike the other discounts that Shopbop has to offer, this one works on brands and designers that are normally excluded from their sales. So if you are looking to make a big purchase and have been waiting and stalking items for a sale, then this is the time!

     Below are a few items I would love for myself:

Print Mix.

     I don't often mix prints and patterns, mostly because I don't own all that many, and in part because I never felt like I could do it successfully without looking like I got dressed in the dark. However,  one day I decided that the black and white stripe and black and white floral pattern was simple enough to pull off and at least didn't make me cringe when I looked in the mirror. And yes, it probably also helps that only a tiny bit of the shirt is peeking out from under the sweater so it didn't scream at me that I was doing something wrong. 

 Jacob Striped Sweater (old, similar here) / J.Crew Boy Shirt (old but love this this) / Club Monaco Emily Pant / Alexander Wang Gabi (or Gabriella) Bootie / 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel (medium on sale with code BIGEVENT15) / Michael Kors Runway Watch / Forever21 Rings

Favorites: The Laundress.

      I am a bit, dare I say, anal when it comes to washing my clothes. Although I have no problem with throwing most things in the wash (in a mesh bag and cold water, of course), the majority of my clothes are hung to dry. For the most part, I use good old Tide or Woolite for Darks. For more delicate items such as silk or cashmere, I turn to The Laundress. 

     The Laundress Stain Solution has almost never failed me. I have watched stains dissolve before my eyes, even those stains that the dry cleaner could not remove. And if they are really stubborn, I let it sit over night, et voila! The stain is gone. If these products were not so pricey, I would wash everything with them (and really, my mom was actually washing everything with them because she saw how good they were until I told her how much the bottle costs). The bottles have lasted me quite a long time because a little goes a long way, but I certainly wouldn't call them cheap either. They are however, eco-friendly, which is a great bonus if you care about that sort of thing.

     My favorite place to get the Laundress is on Amazon, but you can get select items on other websites such as J.Crew or on The Laundress website directly.  I haven't tried all their products, but the ones I have tried, I have been extremely pleased with. 

     Just a few of their products that I think are worth checking out below:

     Anyone have experience with The Laundress products? Please share in the comments below!

     It is by no means appropriate to be wearing this coat right now, as the temperatures as I am sure most many of you are also experiencing is in the, "holy crap it's cold" category, but I wanted to share it with you just in case some of you want to get a head start on the Spring wardrobe update.

     This Banana Republic Swing Trench is just the cutest thing I've purchased in a while and very, very similar to the Everlane Swing Trench, but comes in petite sizing (yay!). BR also had a Swing Trench from last season that only came in regular sizing, but it was not a great fit for petites without alterations, and I was not willing to invest the money into it because I know how costly it could be. Jean, on the hand successfully had it altered and it looks great, so it is definitely an option if you are willing invest. 

     I have also been trying to experiment more with different shapes and silhouettes lately and this fit the bill. Great color, great material and quality. The sizing is a smidge small, so if you have a broader shoulder like I do and want to layer heavily underneath, you may want to consider going up a size. I am wearing a XSP, my normal BR size, but If I close up the jacket with layers underneath (which I would likely never do anyway), it can be borderline too small. 

     If you are busty, this jacket may not be the best choice as it may look a bit maternity, but I love how the slight change in shape can completely change the look of an outfit.

Denim: J Brand Lovestory / Scarf: Banana Republic (sold out but love this) / Blouse: Babaton Peyton / Boots: Coach (this is such a cool pair) / Ring: Aldo / Bag: Zara / Jacket: Banana Republic Swing Trench (also comes in black).
