Couture Apparel Review

News of a package delivery from Couture Apparel on Amazon was a sweet way to start my week. The seller features average priced clothing with something for women of all ages, but almost everything is slashed to about 70% off! They offer attire for a range of functions and activities– from work, to parties, to weekend play. You’ll love the unique designs and shapes of their tops and dresses.

2014-04-06 11.59.55I chose a white sleeveless dress called the Kyra with a visible back zipper and black bordering around the sleeves and hem. The silky material was shapely but not too tight that it became clingy. Two side pockets were accented by gold zippers. Due to the nature of the color I decided it was best to wear a slip underneath, but the dress did come with an attached lining. It’s perfect for work and looks great with any  black pumps or colored flats. Check out what else the site has to offer. My picks are below.

Wear The Paint Review

It had been a long time since I’d seen a hand painted shirt. I did have a blast boasting a homemade t-shirt slathered in puffy paints for Girls Scouts in third grade– if that counts for anything– but I can’t recall any sartorial Pollock or Monet spottings since.  All the better for Wear The Paint’s timing. The ladies of the company are determined to bring crafty hand painted tops back to the forefront of fashion. Last week the new company launched their e-commerce site wearthepaint.com where they sell hand painted tees and sweatshirts for men and women. I love the cute branded tote they wrapped the purchase in! The style is laid back and fun, and the truly hand painted products have a personal touch. Due to the nature of the creation there may be subtle differences with each individual item.

The ladies try to keep the concept modern with in-your-face words, masterpiece replicas (I love the starry night tee!) and other fun design like strawberry hued hearts. The background canvas is very simple and draws attention to the design… it also gives the items an arts and crafts feel. I found their Facebook page and learned a bit more about how the ambitious duo work as a power team. The two friends stay up late designing products and even modelling for the site. Support these awesome entrepreneurs by buying one of their reasonably priced shirts or baggy sweatshirts with inspiring pictures or words.

My picks are:

Tesselated Heart Tee- $20

Rose with Polka Dots Tee- $20

Feather Sweatshirt- $50

Here’s how I wear the paint!
