Fashion and I are a fickle pair. I think I’m pretty good at designing spaces… but when it comes to clothing I’m so lost. About a month ago I started searching for some work appropriate outfits and consulted one of my best-friends to help pick out some clothes. She directed me to Yesstyle.ca and picked out a few pieces of clothing. Alas, here we are with my final purchases from yesstyle!
Fancy Show – Long Sleeve Checked Shirt $13.21 CAD
I know, I know… the backdrops are going to become a bit monotonous but I wasn’t about to drive somewhere and change 5 times in a porta-potty or my car! So, here’s my backyard featuring my lovely garden!
I am regularly a size small at most stores and I was told that this runs on the small side so I decided to pick up a size medium and it fits well. I find that the collar is a bit large, but if I wear my hair down it would easily cover it up. After cutting a few stray pieces of thread it looks pretty good.
QZ Lady – High Wasit Mini Skirt $12.72 CAD, Q.C.T – Mandarin Collar Chiffon Blouse $13.41 CAD, 59 Seconds- Striped Two Tone Tights $10.71 CAD
I don’t think these should ever be paired together… ever again. In an effort to not change 500 times on a very hot day I wanted to mix as many items as possible. Please bear with me! I bought the blouse in a size small after reading reviews that it runs large. The skirt fits tight but it was only available in one size and I have a bit of a booty to pack in there. The tights are awesome and I love them… so there’s that.
This is a size medium, and like the rest it has a tendency to run small. It doesn’t come with a belt and if you don’t wear one it makes you look a little ‘nun-like.’ I’d like to find a belt that’s a little bit tighter than this one because it began to shift around a lot on the smooth fabric. Otherwise I really like this dress and it fits great.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this shirt. It’s only available in one size, don’t ask me how that works. However, it fits well other than the sleeves being a bit tight. I wish they were longer to cover my tattoo on my forearm (which is the main reason why I bought all sleeved outfits.) Other than that it’s gorgeous and makes my blue eyes look ah-mazing! Highly recommend this one.
This blouse was one of the biggest disappointments actually. It’s another one size shirt and it fits perfectly, but there’s extra fabric where the buttons are and even though we tried to iron it out and get rid of the huge wrinkle it was impossible. It’s hard to tell in the image, but the top button is where the wrinkle is… so I don’t think I’ll be wearing this one often at all. #perfectionist
If only you could feel fabric through your screen – this shirt is so soft. This is a one size shirt but seems to fit really well and does have a bit of extra room. Another shirt I really recommend because it’s both cute AND soft.
Other than these items I also purchased some Padded Camisoles from 59 Seconds for $12.26 CAD, in white and nude which I am wearing beneath the blouses. They are both a size medium and fit well.
I spent over $175 CAD which means I qualified for free priority shipping – but keep in mind this is coming from China which means it may sit in customs for about a week (mine did.) If you haven’t purchased from yesstyle before you can also add a 15% discount… so really I spent about $150.
Generally I dislike shopping online because it’s so hard to guess what size will fit. If you can, read reviews! It helps a lot. Especially to find out whether the sizes run large or small. Other than the white blouse which was a real disappointment, I’m happy with my overall purchase!
