Soooo the reason my poses looks weird in today’s post is because it was ridiculously cold outside when Sung and I shot this. Even though these aren’t the most flattering shots of me (lawlz) I still wanted the share because my new top is the cutest ever! I’m a huge fan of Alexis (the designer), and this top could totally pass as one of her pieces. Luckily, the price is totally affordable – it’s currently on sale for $44.93 on Chicwish. Her designs usually cost hundreds of dollars, so this is definitely a budget-friendly alternative.
For those of you interested, this designer-inspired blouse is available in three different sizes: small, medium and large. I got mine in small, and it fits me really well! I’d say the piece fits more like an extra-small/small. It comes as a two piece (white tank + crochet overlay) so feel free to mix and match as you wish. If you’d prefer to wear a cute bralette underneath, go wild! Pair this baby with skinnies like I did below or wear it with a bodycon mini for a fashionable look for date night or GNO. I know many of you may be skeptical of chinese sites, but trust me when I say Chicwish is one of the good ones. I’ve been getting clothes from them for years, and I haven’t been disappointed yet. Just be sure to double check measurements to be safe!
I still can’t get over how adorable the sleeves are, and the crochet is really beautiful! This designer-inspired blouse definitely looks WAY more expensive than it actually is. For $45-ish dollars, you’re getting a super high-quality top you can wear to any and every occasion – click to purchase! On a related note, how do you guys feel about statement sleeves now? Are they still hot or do you think it’s time to retire the trend? Let me know what you think by leaving me a comment below!
On another note, you’ve probably noticed that I altered the layout of Sensible Stylista. There are three main buttons on the homepage: personal style, beauty and haute deals. Personal style and beauty’s very straightforward, but I wanted to take a second to talk about “haute deals,” just in case that was confusing. My blog’s all about shopping smart, and my goal is to help you guys score the best deals possible so I decided to make sales and discount codes a priority! I’ll be compiling the most fabulous deals I can find online and posting them there so definitely make sure to bookmark. Happy shopping, friends!
