Last Sunday I was at one of my favorite Nordstrom events; their VIP Shopping Event. It’s a private party hold for some levels of their card holders. My hubby handed over the invitations to me, and I took one of my good friends to have an evening of dress-up, bubbly, and some light appetizers. The most fun part of course was the dressing room laughs we had trying out a million pretties. Today I’ll share with you my best picks directly reported from the fitting room; Go Shopping With TheBoxQueen style. 🙂

Most of the picks you’ll see above, you can also see on me below. It personally helps me to see pieces on a real person and have a 3D view; hope it is helpful to you as well.

Zip Detail Sweater Dress

This sweater dress from BP caught my eye when we were walking around the upstairs Juniors section. ( I love the basics I find there ) It’s a gorgeous color, and I love the zipper detail. I’ll wear this piece with opaque tights and boots as well as my Mary Jane’s. It also looks lovely under a moto jacket.

Grey Pullover Sweater + Teal Textured Leggings  + Floppy Wool Hat ( different colors)

This sweater comes in a few colors and is the perfect cool weather piece. It goes great with the textured leggings I already have in three colors including the one above. (and I wear them constantly) See how I wore the burgundy leggings here, and the navy version here. 

This hat is a great accessory to top of the outfit and is also pretty stylish. I couldn’t find this color online, however I really liked the tan version.

Crochet Trim TeeCorduroy Skirt

I didn’t really notice these items. The sales associate who was helping us during the shopping party pointed them out. I did like the fit of the skirt, it is not really “me” tough. I am not so much of a paisley girl.  The crochet top is more aligned with my taste and I would pair it with skinny jeans and shorts in spring.

Sleeveless Blazer  + Plaid Patch Destroyed Skinny Jeans

Now the white sleeveless blazer/vest is just my style and has an amazing fit. These plaid patch pants ON SALE is a very similar version of the pants I am wearing above (even cuter) and go great with the cool vibe of the vest.

Love the shape of the sleeveless blazer.

When we were done upstairs, we picked up little bites of yummies, and a flute of bubbly and went downstairs to check out the trendy brands we love in the t.b.d department.

Bell Sleeve Floral Lace Dress

Do you have a celebration, a special event or an extra important date night coming up? Make sure to check out this lace dress. I absolutely adored it’s fit and the real surprise is the stunning back design. You would need a bralette or this backless bra I use with open back pieces. I think it would be so worth it; this dress is pretty remarkable. <3

Cutout Waist Body-Con Dress

I think the Cutout Waist Body-Con Dress would be best for an anniversary or honeymoon dinner. I love this dress. The fabric and the details are beautiful; and the color is so eye-catching. It’s that piece that shows every curve though. I would probably wear shape wear inside it if I wore it in real life.

Rib Knit Tunic + Moto High Rise Ripped Jeans (ON SALE) 

I bought these Moto Ripped Jeans at the event and wore them for lunch with friends today. I am in love with them and at 45% off, the value is very nice too. If you want to get them as well, keep in mind that the TopShop sizing fits a bit small. You need to size up one size. For instance if you are a true 27 purchase the 28. I did just that and the fit is right and comfy.

In the store I matched the jeans with this Rib Knit Tunic. The brand is one I know and own. The sweater is a staple transitional weather item.

    So fun! What’s better than shopping, bubbly and snacks. 🙂 I had my eye on the BP pullover- a great basic and so many great colors. What size are you wearing? Sometimes I am unsure of what size to choose in Juniors.

    • Theboxqueen

      Cheryl I wear XS in sweaters like this or other tops.. Junior sizing in bottoms can be a bit tricky for me. I usually size up one size when buying Junior jeans and bottoms. It was a really fun event. The BP pullover is such a great basic and is a good value too. Have the best Saturday lovely. XOXO, Elif

    I should know better than to read your blog, Elif 😉 Every time I do, it makes me want to buy something. You have such a good eye for great pieces. I love the teal dress (added to my wish list) and the crochet trim tee is also so pretty!

    • Theboxqueen

      Caroline haha I hope you keep reading 🙂 Joking aside, thanks for your sweet comment. So happy to learn you like the pieces I pick. The teal dress is one of my fave’s of the bunch. I am really into color teal this season (actually more than I’ve ever been) and this would also look great with leggings and boots. Happy Saturday!! XOXO, Elif

    Warm and cozy yet stylish sweaters. I also liked the side zipper detail dress. Of course, you can never have enough of destroyed jeans:)

    • Theboxqueen

      Ahhhh my weakness- destroyed jeans! My family, husband, kids, and friends all make lighthearted fun of it. Every time I go shopping someone says smt along the lines of “Let me guess what you got? This time it is a difficult guess. Wait! It’s ripped jeans” Hehe. The teal love is a newer thing tough. Seems like this season I am into teal. Have a great one today lovely. XOXO, Elif

    <3 Nordies! our Rack opened last week and i drank TWO bottles of bubbly (ok, they were individual sizes) (;

    • Theboxqueen

      Hahahaha they served good ones too. 🙂 Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack – I am making a heart shape with my hand right now haha. Love both!!! XOXO, Elif

  • Sibel Gultekin

    I agree with Caroline. I like to go window shopping as soon as possible. The event was amazing. Nordstrom one of my favorite places to shop.

    • Theboxqueen

      It really was 🙂 We had the best time! Happy Tuesday dear, XOXO, Elif
