The Real Pretty Shop. Last Day! {And…there’s a SALE.}

2nd sale header on sale

Yesterday was so fun! And you still have all day today to shop. Below are the outfits that haven’t been picked yet but you can go to yesterday’s post because those items are still up for grabs until midnight tonight.

If by chance there are two outfits you like and you’re the only one who picks them, you can purchase both and shipping will still be FREE.

There are a few lovely ensembles still left and waiting for a closet that will love and cherish them.

And I put them on SALE!

Because sales are fun and also because I want to clear out my “shop” to make room for new inventory. {I am so legit with my shopgirl lingo.}

SHOP NOTE: This doesn’t mean I’ll always mark down what’s still available. Otherwise no one will put their name in the hat for future sales — in hopes that I’ll mark it down the next day. But this sale has TWELVE outfits and it’s right before Christmas and Marian needs to clear it out.

Here’s what I still have available.

MARKED DOWN FROM $25. This is a similar look to outfit 1 — blazer + button-up sweater + necklace. But this one is a much more relaxed look. Camel-colored blazer is tapemeasure {brand} size 8. Sweater is daisy fuentes size large. Let’s talk about fit. I’d say both of these are a medium. The sweater runs small and the fit of the jacket is somewhat cropped {slightly above hip-length} and with a relaxed fit. I added a sweet necklace made of wooden beads and white shells.

If you want the look of a blazer but with the comfort of “real” clothes, this is a great outfit — comfy and easy.

PAIRS WELL WITH:
  • Any and all denim with tall boots or booties.
  • The blazer will look great with a button-up, fitted casual sweater, or graphic tee.
  • I’d wear it with a solid tee and chunky beaded necklace or a sweatery scarf. Or maybe a lightweight printed scarf.
  • The sweater is super cute on its own. Unbutton it and wear a solid tee or casual button-up with a chunky, wooden-bead necklace.
  • All three of these pieces can be mixed and matched with the rest of your wardrobe.

MARKED DOWN FROM $35. Rock N’ Republic is famous for its spendy, fabulous jeans. But a couple of years ago they came out with a line for Kohl’s. This blazer — size 10 — is edgy but not too edgy. I love that it’s linen {not too heavy and bulky} but with a studded lapel. If red and orange and coral had a baby, it would be this color. It’s fantastic. Here’s a pic I found online that shows the shape a bit better.

Don’t trust my amateur pics on this one! It was hard to photograph. I tried this on again this morning and the shape is so fab, very elongating and creates a lovely shape. I feel this jacket is the best fit for someone 5’4 or taller. Also, this is really a medium to large. It’s relaxed tailoring and I feel it could fit someone between a size 6ish and a size 10.
PAIRS WELL WITH:
  • DENIM. Because of course. This is rock n’ roll, not your Easter outfit.
  • I’d go with skinnies. You can go with bootcut if they’re fitted and if you wear a shoe or boot with a little bit of a heel. This jacket is a tad longer so you’ll want balance.
  • White jeans.
  • Black jeans.
  • Cowboy boots or some other sassy sort of bootie or wedges.
  • Pair the blazer with a denim shirt, graphic tee, or fitted sweater. Because it’s linen, you can wear it in the spring / summer. Because it’s a blazer, you can wear it in the fall / winter.
  • Pair the multi-seasonal black shell with anything and everything.

AND IF YOU DON’T WANT THE NECKLACE WITH THIS ONE, TAKE ANOTHER $5 OFF!

I actually have TWO different necklaces you can wear with this blouse and I’m going to let you choose!

A metallic and stone necklace and a wooden beaded and leather necklace. These would both look great with lots of other stuff in your wardrobe.

MARKED DOWN FROM $20 AND WITH YOUR CHOICE OF NECKLACE. I won’t be super sad if this one doesn’t sell because it’s so very giftable. {I’m looking at you sisters-in-law.} This gorgeous blouse is silk and it’s Banana Republic and one of you will look lovely in it. The pictures don’t do justice to this luxe button-up blouse in the most beautiful wine color {that I want for myself.} It has 3/4-length sleeves and I’ve paired it with a long necklace. I love this ensemble so much.

It’s a size large and true to size but you could be a medium and wear it a bit looser or plan to layer something on top of it. It’s much less boxy-looking than the photo shows. Since it’s not a tailored piece, the size is more forgiving both ways.

PAIRS WELL WITH:
  • A vest. This would be stellar with a faux fur vest or plush sweatery vest. Vests are super in right now and easy to find in stores.
  • Throw on a blazer or cardigan for layers.
  • A scarf — sweatery {for contrast} or a flowy, drapey fabric.
  • Jeans — any rinse. Or white or black skinny jeans.
  • Tuck it into a skirt to dress it up and make it more tailored.
  • All kinds of boots.

MARKED DOWN FROM $30. So blazers don’t have to be tailored and layered with fitted sweaters and button-ups. I adore this swing-type velvety jacket in plum. Again, the pics don’t show her true loveliness. This jacket has three pewter-looking buttons, 3/4-length sleeves, and is fully lined. This is a size 14. 

I’ve paired it with a batik-type lightweight scarf that will be your go-to scarf for everything, from your denim shirt to your flowy knit tops.

PAIRS WELL WITH:
  • You can go dressy or casual with this one too. Because it’s velvety and festive, you can for sure dress it up with satiny black pants or winter white dress pants.
  • Wear it as a cape-style jacket over a black dress or holiday dress.
  • Pair it with jeans or cords to contrast and go casual. The scarf takes it down a notch and makes it look great with denim.
  • You can go with skinny jeans / slim pants or wear bootcuts.

MARKED DOWN FROM $30. Festive and fun and wonderful — that’s what this ensemble is. Chartreusey / citron Jones New York cardigan, size 2X, with 3/4 – length sleeves and sweet details. Notched collar and chiffon-type overlay on the trim of the pockets and at the collar.

I’ve layered it with a soft, sweatery scarf that’s embellished with a flower and I included one my handmade tassel bracelets. {Stack this with any gold bangles you already have.}

PAIRS WELL WITH:
  • Add a long-sleeve knit top, shell, or button-up.
  • Dress it up with statement jewelry and dressier pants.
  • Make it everyday wear with jeans, your scarf, trendy sneakers, or booties.
  • Love the sweater but afraid this isn’t your color? Pair it with a scarf — this one or your own — and it’ll work. This color actually contrasts well with other colors like pinks, purples, and blues.
  • Because it’s lightweight, it’s multi-seasonal. Because it’s a sweater {and has a scarf}, it’s just as perfect for this time of year.

HERE’S HOW THE SHOP WORKS
  • See something you like? Go to the comments section and tell me what number outfit you like.
  • Then include your PayPal address in the comment box. This is very important. If you don’t include your PayPal address, I can’t send you an invoice. {Or your outfit.}
  • The comments section will stay open until Friday night at midnight. If there are multiple people who all want the same outfit, I’ll draw a name and send you an invoice. That way everyone has a chance to get their hands on an outfit.
  • If there’s more than one outfit you like, go ahead and comment on both. Let me know your first and second choices.
  • Even if someone has already commented on the outfit you want, comment anyway since you all have the same chance to win. The comments will close at midnight EST on Friday night {Saturday morning.}
  • I can’t ship your items before payment. Obviously.
  • All outfits will ship USPS priority mail flat-rate shipping. You guys, shipping is expensive. I really didn’t know. So in an effort to keep this truly affordable, your ensembles will be smushed into a tiny gelatin capsule that you’ll have to soak in water for 20 minutes and then poof, your outfit will dislodge. Kidding! But it will be tightly folded up like origami when it arrives. I apologize for the wrinkles. Blame the USPS. Throw your duds in the dryer with a dryer sheet and a damp towel and you’ll be good to go.
  • No returns, much as it pains me. {My people-pleasing self hates this rule but it just has to be.} If for any reason an item doesn’t work out, you can pass it along to a friend, split up the items {keep what works for yourself or pass along what doesn’t to someone else}, or donate it to your favorite thrift shop.
  • Like the shop? Know someone who would dig this sort of thing? Spread the word. You can use those share buttons at the bottom of the post.
