The Mango items were purchased from the outlet store online, Mangooutlet.com! I’ve ordered from the site in the past. All of the items seem authentic, in brand-new condition, and I’ve never had an order problems or customer service issues. This time was no different! You can find awesome deals on Mango fashion there.
White jeans & jeggings
Finding great-fitting, affordable jeans is a challenge for every lady I think. My issue is I’m short and skinny and it’s hard to find jeans that aren’t too long or too baggy, especially in the legs. Not every type of Mango jean is made the same, but I’ve found the Olivia and Noa jeans to both fit fantastic on me as a petite girl, which is why I bought a pair of each in white! I know it’s almost Labor Day so they might be going out of fashion, but I don’t really care. I haven’t had white jeans in years and I wanted to add them to my wardrobe.
The Noa jeans are a stark, bright white while the Olivia jeans are slightly off-white, cream colored. Both jeans are US size 1, the Noa jeans are high-waisted and the Olivia jeans are mid-rise. They fit perfectly, and are comfy and flattering. They’re not too tight or too loose in the waist and the legs. They’re long enough that I can roll the leg cuffs up without being too long. The Piti jeggings I bought in size 1 as well but they’re very tight, and I should have sized-up. They look casual and are more leggings than jeans. I’m not too bummed about them not fitting well because they were inexpensive; I’m hoping they’ll stretch out.
Dress & accessory
The Michel dress is gorgeous. An LBD is always classic fashion and I love the asymmetrical lace detail on the shoulder. It’s a size 2, and it’s looser and longer than I’d expected–I thought it was going to be a formfitting minidress, but it falls pretty straight down and ends closer to my knee, making it more of a classy shift dress. I think it will be versatile and I can take it from daytime in a professional/office setting, straight into evening for a night out. It has two seams in the front giving it a nice shape, the fabric is soft and it’s comfortable and I’m pleased!
The Ida necklace was a cute little addition I threw in just to spend $50 and qualify for free shipping. It’s fairly long reaching the waist, and the chain part was a little dented/kinked on arrival, but not badly enough to warrant an exchange or return. Hanging from it is a gold hoop in the form of snake, with its head settled on a pearl. It’s interesting, large, and makes a fashion statement!
The last item I picked up from a Free People store. Affordably priced, this cropped spaghetti strap cami top is actually a bralette. I like the bralette as a top trend, and this one is opaque, so it’s perfect. The fabric is a bit scratchy but the size is XS/S fits perfectly. I love the form-fitting shape with the slightly cinched bottom hem. There is enough coverage to wear a regular bra underneath. The color on the tag says indigo, and it looks like a dark, earthy blueish teal color which I love, and it has gold sparkles. The sparkles seem to be part of the thread which is great because I haven’t seen any sparkles come off. In store they also had a version in dark rusty red with gold sparkles that was tempting, but I decided this one would best fit my wardrobe.
