Living in a small(ish) city in the Midwest, there are plenty of cool stores that we just don't have near us. UNIQLO is one of those stores. I had previously heard of UNIQLO. I remember seeing the storefront while visiting my family in L.A. But otherwise, I wasn't completely familiar with the brand until they reached out to see if I would be interested in styling a few of their pieces.
I have learned over the years to accept collaborations only after careful thought and research because I want to make sure that: 1.It's something that I am (and by extension, you are) interested in. 2.I have time to make good on the collab.
So I checked out their site and was pleasantly surprised to find that they offered a lot of great basics and other fun pieces in gorgeous colors. Think Gap meets Banana Republic, meets JCrew, meets LOFT. The prices were fantastic too. I e-mailed back and so began the creation of the look below. Other than loving every piece that I received, the thing that I was most impressed with was the quality of the clothes (especially for the price!). I fell particularly hard for the chambray button down and the sweater. The material felt thick (but not heavy), luxurious, and extremely well-made. I also loved the comfort and fit of the boyfriend jeans and the cute cuff detail on the blazer.
I'm so happy that I discovered UNIQLO because their style totally jives with mine. And now that I've actually seen and felt their clothes first hand, I am 100% going to be adding them to my "online stores that I love to shop from" repertoire. :)
