Guys, I’m in love.
No, not with my boyfriend. I mean yeah I love him, but look at this top!! Like many other fashionistas, I’ve been eyeing the OTS dresses and tops from MLM Label. Now, I really don’t see OTS as a fad that’s going out of style quickly and I truly see myself wearing this trend next summer, but something about paying over $150 for a ruffled blouse just gave me anxiety. As much as I wanted to pull the trigger and make the big purchase, I just couldn’t.
As I was online shopping (like the crazy shop-a-holic I am), I had the strangest urge to go on the SHEIN website. I was never drawn to the site before partly because my professional fashion background rejects fast fashion that blatantly copies and partly because I’m a skeptic that believes if something is that cheap, it’s not real or good. But, anyways I ventured off to the realm of endless everything. One thing I really loved was that they have a trending column so naturally I picked off the shoulder and oh my gosh, I wish I could show you guys my reaction when I saw this blouse and my reaction again when I saw this blouse in blue, and again when I saw the material was cotton and again when I noticed the price. Oh.My.God.
I can’t tell you how obsessed I am with this top and I even purchased it in both colors because hello, why not? I mean have you seen the price?! I received so many compliments from my coworkers and strangers when I wore it and crazy enough it’s super comfortable and the quality is really great. I really love that this is an amazing dupe for the designer version because it’s a piece that I really love and appreciate in my closet without the guilt of a hefty price tag. I’m definitely going to be wearing this every chance I get until the end of summer, it’s also super cute wearing it as a one shoulder and I’m already thinking of how I can transition this to fall, so stay tuned!
