Interesting Details

Welcome to this edition of Thursday Fashion Files! This week it struck me that my shopping behaviors have changed a bit over the years. I find myself thinking a little more and practicing more discernment before making a purchase. One of the things I find myself looking for are those interesting details that really make a piece stand out.

Interesting Details

It might be a puff sleeve, a unique button, a fabric or color but interesting details often seal the deal for me. Not in a look-at-me kind of way but more along the lines of determining if something is worth the money.

I’ve got three tops with interesting details that are new to me that I think you’ll appreciate. My criteria when I’m selecting clothing includes versatility; I must be able to style a piece at least three ways. Unless it’s a special occasion dress I don’t have the space to house one hit wonders. Clutter feeds anxious feelings and I choose peace over mayhem. My closet must reflect this as well.

Three Tops with Interesting Details

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen these. Two are from Avara and one is from Amazon. The one I am most excited about is this tencel puff sleeve top. It reminds me so much of the super expensive Holly jacket from Cinq a Sept, not a dupe by any means but certainly some similarities.

The pretty details on this top combined with a very neutral fabric and color make it one I believe I can wear for a very long time. It’s a basic but better and can be styled so many ways. This top is called the Brandy top and I am wearing a size small.

Whenever I wear red I get lots of compliments and wonder why I don’t wear it more often. This pretty red top has a puff sleeve detail that makes it stand out. It’s not a flutter sleeve but it provides a bit of coverage on the upper arm. The other interesting detail is the v-neckline with just a hint of ruffle on the trim. This one is called the Agnes top and it also comes in navy blue, I am wearing a size small.

My Avara discount code THISBLONDE15 will save you 15%.

Finally, this striped sweater vest that reminds me so much of the popular lady jackets but it’s warm weather friendly. The gold button detail really makes this a stand out piece. Another versatile item that looks way more expensive. I am wearing a size small.

Interesting details make some items ‘hero pieces’ – they are the ones that carry an outfit. I don’t mind spending slightly more for one of these, especially when I know I can wear it multiple ways. How about you, do you look for stand out details in your clothing?

Just in case you’re looking to add items with interesting details to your wardrobe, this is a great time to check out Loft! I heard a rumor that starting today they have 50% off and FREE SHIPPING!!! Shop it all here!
