Happy Saturday! So, unfortunately yesterday’s post was put off until today because of internet issues (the perks of living in the boondocks, y’all ;), but we girls are SO excited to share with you our latest collaboration! ShopMieux contacted us a few weeks ago to do a review of their company, and we girls were so thrilled to do so! Why? Well, you’re just going to have to read more to find out 🙂
As many of you know, we girls love thrifting! There’s nothing we like better than scanning the racks at our local Goodwill, searching for that perfect sweater, amazing name-brand blouse, or vintage masterpiece! What could make this experience even better? Being able to thrift from the comfort of your own home, browsing through pages of amazingly marked-down pieces from even more amazing brands. This, my friends, is exactly what ShopMieux provides to the avid thrifty gal. We girls spent hours trying to figure out the perfect pieces to review, and finally came down to 5 items that we have styled in this post.
What makes ShopMieux different than other online thrift shops? Well, the #1 thing that stood out to all of us girls is their top-notch customer service! Like, open-the-chat-box-and-ask-what-the-measurements-of-this-garment-are-and-get-a-response-in-less-than-5-minutes top-notch! That is something we girls have always struggled with when thrifting online: you just can’t make a thorough judgement of a garment when you don’t know the measurements. Well, Shop Mieux fulfilled that need through their easily accessible customer service, who are some of the best people you could ever find “behind the counter” of an online thrift shop!
I know that some of you may be thinking “What?! Shorts?!” Yes, my friends: shorts 🙂 Why shorts? Well whenever I picked out the sweater you see above from the vast selection at ShopMeiux, and began to filter through my closet for a way to style it, I thought “hey, why not a nice fall-inspired bike ride outfit?” I love to wear these shorts when we go to a fellowship meal where their is going to be a lot of running involved (think “Ghosts in the Graveyard” and “Cops and Robbers”), or when we go on bike rides. This sweater was perfect for a casual biking style, too! I actually turned it around so that the zipper is in the front. Creativity at work, folks 🙂 I used the sweater as a pop of color for the rest of the outfit, while being adventurous and pairing black with brown.
Jessica said: “While browsing through ShopMieux’s selection, I decided to look for a nice top. As I was scanning each page I kept coming back to this one retro-looking blouse made by Tulle. I couldn’t have chosen a better print for a blouse, but I was still a little wary of the sizing. When it comes to sizing xsmalls to smalls, I usually have to try them on to figure out the fit of the garment. Well, thanks to the wonderful chat box, I was able to find out the exact measurements for the blouse. Wouldn’t you know it, the blouse fit just right when it arrived! And despite a five minute fix–sewing up the button placket for modesty’s sake–I am thoroughly stoked about this new item hanging up in my closet! Honestly, if I was to go back to ShopMieux (which I will without a doubt!) I would go back just for the great customer service Chat Box! Every online retail store should have one!
I did have a little difficulty finding a good looking outfit to go with my blouse, what with the unique print and all. In the end, I figured I should try pairing polka dots with retro triangles. It worked, and I love it! Do you?
Also, by the time we three had picked out our items, we still had some money left over to buy some accessories. Ooh, what to get, what to get? We three landed an agreement on this darling red and rust-edged silky scarf, as the color combination would go with a lot of our outfits. I think it a most adorable scarf, so much so that I think I will be wearing it a good deal in the coming blustery months for a nice neck warmer. Doesn’t the color just make you feel cosy?”
