AND NOW FOR A SPONSORED POST FROM STYLEYOU


a few weeks ago StyleYou asked me to do a review of their curated shopping service. sometimes it feels like i shop for a living -- between my style articles at babble and the weekly forever 21 column and the fact that zara has the best air conditioning on the upper west side, plus huck's ever lengthening legs, i'm almost always analyzing some clothing inventory of some kind and "shopping around" for whateverhaveyou. so i was intrigued by the idea and thought it'd be fun to see what someone else would pick out for me. also, i really love me some mail days. (huck too, he and the mail guy are buds.) 

StyleYou is one of those services where you fill out a questionnaire to define your style and the looks that interest you, and the looks that DON'T interest you (turns out i have a clinical aversion to houndstooth) and then a team of stylists uses that information to pull together a box of clothes. shipping is free both ways and you're only charged for what you decide to keep (you have about a week to make your decision). 

the box arrived last week and during one of huck's rare afternoon naps i went through and played dress up. and then i put together this super high fashion "editorial spread" using just the self timer on my iphone and my plucky personality, because my camera is temporarily out of commish and the holbstographer works a million hours a week in the summer. cheers! 

ombré tank top for the beach! and white jeans for spilling my mustard on. winners.
super cute dress. (sadly too short for me. back it goes!) and, i mean, it's a hot pink blazer. ain't nothing wrong with that.

you can check out StyleYou on facebook HERE.
thank you to StyleYou for the fun opportunity,
and thank YOU as always for supporting the companies that support the rat. xo!

  4. What a great concept! I don't know if I could resist any of the items I sent... OR trust someone to shop for me. That almost never works, except for a few trusted friends. I love the self timer photos. You nailed it girl!

  5. I signed up! I am going to try out the pink blazer and the striped orange shirt. I can't wait to see what else comes. The dress is super cute, but I'm glad you said it was way short on you. I am almost 6' tall so it would have been inappropriately short on me. What did you end up keeping?

  6. I'm glad to see one of my followed bloggers discuss these new "personal shopper" packages. I've been wanting to try it out myself, but like other ladies in here, my pickiness would prove difficult to keep ANYTHING.

  17. What a good idea!! I think you look great in the ombre vest & white jeans. Your hair and skin colour looks just right with it! I also especially like your bedding, Natalie. Polka dot duvet!??! I didn't know I could buy such a thing!
