NewYorkco.1

I’m in the process of actually planning my corporate party.  That’s my excuse for needing so many holiday looks!  Since December 1st, I’ve been asked at least three times if I was heading to a party …so I guess my party vibe is working!  

One of my favorite fabrics is plaid. Not just during the Holidays but all year round.

Maybe its a Southern thing…Madras Plaid is a staple of the summer Southern wardrobe. 

In general, plaid can actually be used as a neutral or as a statement pattern too so it’s very versatile.  Black and white Buffalo Plaid is also HUGE right now and rightfully so..its a clean look.   

NewYorkco.3

My favorite pattern for the Holidays is a tartan plaid…I find it VERY hard to pass up!  It reminds me of Christmas trees and money….meaning that it’s a Holiday look that I consider refined and chic…and therefore expensive!

THIS TOP…oh my god…I seriously went crazy for it.   And it does look expensive although it’s not.  The fabric is beautiful and it’s well made and fits great!

NewYorkco.5

It’s a faux bustier, which reminds me of two bustier tops I had back in the late 90’s (yeah, I know….AGE..ugh).  I had a black one and a red one and I wore them basically every day during that Holiday season in 1996…my teenage heart feeling as if it would burst with romantic Christmas charm. 

So, I was instantly drawn to this top.  Plus, it’s plaid so…perfection.  And it has a beautiful wrap-around bow that you can tie two ways.  I close to tie the bow in front for this look so I could add a brooch but you can also tie it in back.  

NewYorkco.4

It’s so chic and there are pants that match the top for a total – head to toe- look.  I have SO much plaid that I just bought the top but I’m very tempted to go back and snag the pants as well!  They’re buy one get one half off now so…a great deal!  And don’t forget, it’s not too late to shop online for upcoming Holiday parties!  I’m finding that shipping is about 4 days from store to door!

So…here are my SHEIN shopping tips!

There are only two tricky little quirks about SHEIN:

  • Fit
  • Shipping Time

FIT:  I’ve been ordering from them for about 5 years now and, at first, the sizing was difficult.  Most items were sized very small and I struggled to not order an X-large in almost everything.

Good news is, with SHEIN’s success and popularity, has come better sizing!  I feel all of the items I’ve purchased recently are correctly sized and have confidence in shopping their products using my “typical sizing”.  

Just to be safe – always check the reviews and the Size & Fit section of each item.  This will give you an even greater idea of how the item will fit!


SHIPPING TIME:  Another concern can be shipping time.  GREAT news – shipping time has been greatly reduced to about 5 days!!  I placed the order and 5 days later, the delivery was made to my home!

So, check SHEIN out for all of your party needs!  I’ll be posting several of the items I purchased just for that purpose…

…I do love a good party and especially love to dress for one!
