THE PEAR NECESSITIES: THE WHITE BUTTON DOWN SHIRT

It’s been a long time since I’ve gone shopping for button down shirt. Generally, I stay away from this category because I find it challenging to shop for. Often times when a button down fits my bust area it’s then too tight it hip area! Can anyone else relate? However, recently one of my friends reached out about where to find a good button down and I realized I had NO IDEA off the top of my head! So I decided to order styles from a variety of brands to figure out which ones are truly pear-friendly! Keep reading to find out what brands I recommend!

EXPRESS PETITES REVIEW

I’m excited to share this review because I’ve been wanting to check out more items from Express’ petite line ever since trying out their coats last Fall. It’s definitely been a while since I’ve shopped at Express. Honestly, I probably haven’t stepped foot in one since middle or high school. Was anyone else completely obsessed with their cami tank tops and t-shirts back in the day? While Express isn’t my go-to store, I’m always game to check out a brand that offers petite sizes.

MY FIRST STITCH FIX BOX!

I’ve always wanted to try out Stitch Fix and recently decided to give them a try. Stitch Fix is definitely a nice alternative to shopping at stores in NYC, which can always a little bit crazy. (Those of you who live here know, going to Zara at 2pm on Saturday is pretty much always a bad idea because the dressing room lines are out of control!)

When I signed up for Stitch Fix, the first step in the process was filling out a style quiz to share the clothing sizes I generally wear and my style preferences. Definitely make sure you carve out some time to do the quiz portion because it’s probably took me about 15 minutes. Once I completed quiz, all I had to do was schedule my “fix” frequency. Not gonna lie, I have ton of clothes in my closet right now so I picked the quarterly frequency for the time being. However, I can still change the frequency or cancel whenever I want.

My box arrived about 2 weeks after scheduling the quiz. (So if you’re on a time crunch, this might not be the best option for you.) I received 5 items in my box out of which I legitimately liked 3 of them. However, I knew the FIT test would be the real determining factor in terms of what I ended up keeping.
