Ever heard about Popbasic? It is an interesting clothing service that puts together micro collections of wardrobe essentials, a new one each month, which you can buy as a set. The owner of the company is a nice young gal named Madeline Veenstra. She contacted me recently and asked if I’d like to try one of her micro collections. Who can refuse free clothes? I said a happy yes. The collection she sent me was the Felicity collection which consisted of a lovely grey long sleeve knit dress, a long mixed metals necklace and a really cute bracelet.
The dress is possibly THE softest dress I’ve ever felt in my life. It ended up being a little clingy in the bust for me. It made me feel conspicuous, and those of us with less-than-perfect figures would definitely need quality undergarments. But lo and behold, the dress is absolutely LOVELY on my 12 year old daughter– she was completely thrilled to get it. She wore it to church the next day with a denim jacket and looked completely adorable.
My 9 year old daughter wanted to commandeer the jewelry– she loves everything bling. But since I also adored the jewelry, she’s going to have to content herself with just borrowing the bracelet now and then. I especially loved that the necklace combined silver and gold. I love silver and wear it almost exclusively, but there are times when something I’m wearing has a gold accent (like the buttons on a jeans jacket) and this necklace helps things tie together beautifully.
Browsing through the other collections, it looked like some of the clothing might be most flattering to smaller gals. But other collections were awesome and looked like they’d work great for a variety of figures. (They offer sizes up to ladies extra-large.)
I’m not 100% certain I’ll order from Popbasic in the future, but I’m definitely going to keep my eye out for a collection that tickles my fancy. If you would like to try PopBasic, click here for a $15 discount on your first collection.
