Good evening my dear Ladies. Tonight I am very excited to start a brand new series called ” Go Shopping with TheBoxQueen”. You know by now that I love putting together my best picks boards from various retailers I frequent. I thought of a new concept where I can show you my picks, but also model them in person at the stores ( with online branches. This way all of you can shop if you like an item you see) so you can see the pieces on, and have different views of how they look.
In each edition of the series I’ll first share my picks from the retailer followed by my dressing room mirror selfies. I’ll also let you know which items I ended up buying, or consider purchasing. I hope, like all my series, this will be interactive. Please let me know if there are stores you would like me to visit, and show the latest of. You can leave me a message here, find me on social media, or email me. 🙂 Let’s get started with this week’s store.
Check Contrast Sweater $58
‘Sugar Baby’ Denim Shirt $78
Utility Pants $68
Split Back Duster $110
Print Shift Dress $58
Long Sleeve Wrap Dress $60
Jersey V-Neck Tee $20
‘Tape’ Pullover $58
In the NW, where I live there are plenty of Nordstrom department stores. It’s funny that I usually shop online with them. Love their online exclusives, the easy search option that narrows down the thousands of apparel, and the best of all shipping is free, always. Bonus points to Nordstrom: You can return your online purchases to Brick & Mortar stores.
You’ll probably see me go to Nordstrom plenty of times, as I know the store is universal for most of my readers. ( and they replenish their stock frequently) Nordstrom carries so many of my favorite brands, along with smaller, trendier ones, and they ship all over the world.
This week I found some great winter, and spring items I can’t wait to show you.
BLANKNYC Sugar Baby Denim Shirt ($78)
This denim shirt by BLANKNYC caught my eye immediately in the store. The sales associate who helped me said this shirt is new, and is flying off the shelves. Here is how it looks with my skinny jeans, and close-up.
Style Tip: The shirt is longer on the back, and the front has a unique, almost a half wrap hem. It’s so lovely over skinny’s, and also over dresses, and skirts for a variety of outfits. You can also wear it over a tunic tank top with leggings.
I ended up buying this shirt. Not only is it perfect for the on trend denim on denim look, but it’s shape is like nothing in my closet. Totally recommend.
TOPSHOP Crepe Layering Dress ($150) & TOPSHOP Jersey V Neck Tee ($20)
As soon as I saw this dress I was drawn to the color, and thought it was quite interesting. The Crepe dress is a beautiful V-neck front & back dress, that you wear over a tank top, a tee, or even a shirt. Unexpected, and modern.
Style Tip: Use a basic jersey tee like the one you see above under the dress. The design details on this dress is lovely. I especially love the back slit, ruffle on one side, and the straight fit. A basic piece, and this original dress will make a great pair, and will have the perfect balance of styles.
I didn’t leave the store with the dress, as I thought I couldn’t justify the price tag. I’ll be on the lookout for this piece online to grab it when it goes on sale. 🙂
TOPSHOP Check Contrast Sweater ($58) & BLANKNYC Utility Pants ($68)
Plaid is a “never out of style” print, a classic in my book. It is however more hip, more “in” than ever this winter. This sweater with plaid back, and pocket caught my eye, and I thought it would look great with the fitted utility pants.
I immediately bought the utility pants. They have the most amazing fit ever, and has just the right amount of edge. Wholeheartedly recommend them. <3
TOPSHOP Check Contrast Sweater ($58)
This is a close-up of how the sweater looks in the back. I almost wanted this piece to be a bit bolder in color. I need to admit the neutral grey goes with everything though.
TILDON Print Shift Dress ($58) & Wayf Long Sleeve Wrap Dress ($60)
Two of my favorites from my Nordstrom trip were these two dresses. I love the liveliness, and color in both. The shapes are obviously different. The Tildon Print is a shift dress, and the Wayf one a wrap. I need your help on this one ladies!! I’ll go back for one of these pretties, and I still can’t choose. I also asked this question on TheBoxQueen Instagram, and got positive responses for both. Which one do you think I should buy lovelies?
I truly recommend both dresses for you all looking for a fun dress you can layer with tights now, and wear alone in spring. They were both true to size, and had comfy fits.
TOPSHOP Split Back Duster ($110)
Ok this duster looked very promising on the hanger. I couldn’t get a good picture of the back, but it is very unique being split in the middle. I thought I would look really cool in it, but it didn’t quite turn out that way LOL. It has the potential to look cute with high heel boots, leggings, and a contrasting color skin tight top under. ( which I didn’t have with me) Passed.
Tildon Tape Pullover ($58)
A great everyday pullover that has a nice texture. I pulled mine down completely so you can see the length of the knit ( on a 5 5′ body), however it looks very current tucked in a bit in the front. Lovely piece!!
I can’t wait to hear what you think of the new “Go Shopping” series, and look forward to learn which stores you would like me to visit to show you my best picks. <3
