This Week's Picks - BB Dakota, O.P.T.
Hi guys!!! Just having some major Spring fever over here!!! Last week we unboxed so many incredible spring pieces from BB Dakota, ranging from rompers, to dresses, to long flowy pants, and of course some super cute tops that are perfect transition pieces. We also received two of the most gorgeous jumpsuits that I have ever laid eyes on from One Pretty Time (O.P.T), which will be perfect for wedding season, so stayed tuned for that later on in the blog!
It only makes sense to kick things off with rompers, because who doesn’t love a good romper?!?! I think the reason I love them so much is because they literally work for every occasions, whether that’s dressing them up for a wedding with a pair of heels, or for a lazy Sunday with a jean jacket and a pair of converse or flip flops. I also love the fact that they take up little to no room in a suitcase so they are perfect for travelling AND unlike that cute sundress, if it’s windy you don’t need to worry about it flying up and exposing yourself to the world!!! Trust me when I say…been there, done that, and it ain’t cute!!! I’m actually laughing out loud at the moment, because this has me thinking about my trip to Chile, where we had this beautiful day planned that consisted of several wine tours and I of course had to plan the perfect outfit, because cute outfits = even cuter pictures…AM I RIGHT?!!? Well let’s just say that a flowy dress, wide brimmed hat, and wedge heels in 70MPH winds is NOT CUTE!!! I think I spent more time that day holding my dress down with one hand and the other hand holding my hat on my head… so moral of the story, rompers are life and everyone should have more of them!!!
So now that you all see the importance in having lots of rompers (LOL), the “Orchid Stroll”-$115 is a super cute floral romper with ruffle trim sleeve detail and is made of a more structured material, meaning there is no stretch, so it a little dressier in my opinion. It also features a wrap front and tie waist, similar to a wrap dress, and we all know that wrap dresses are super flattering because they define the slimmest portion of your torso and who doesn’t want that!
The other romper we received is this ultra-comfortable “Wrap Party Romper”-$105, the material is so soft and stretchy you almost feel like you are wearing pyjamas! At this point you probably know that I love “texture” when it comes to clothes, so I’m definitely crushing on this ribbed material which just so happens to also be available in a top version! The “Not In A Rush Tank” is perfect for layering under that leather jacket, or with a pair of white denim and retails for $75. I love how from the front it’s very simplistic, and then in the back it shows some skin (not too much) with a little open back and tie up detail.
This next item has proven to be a fan favourite among our Instagram followers and we are not surprised, because these pants are AMAZING!!! “The Wide Stride Pant”- $128 is SO on trend this season, as we are starting to see designers move further away from skin tight pants to wider legs and high-waisted styles. Sabrina has paired these pants with the “Not In A Rush Tank” mentioned above, and a pair of black pumps for a dressier look! This look is so flattering and would be a great work day outfit by simply adding a blazer.
“The Royal Flush” is a sophisticated double-breasted tweed coat with gold button details and fringe trim and retails for just $168! In my opinion this jacket is a must have in everyone’s spring wardrobe, but don’t wait on it because we only have a few in stock and they are going to go fast!
One Pretty Time (O.P.T)
If you have been keeping up with our blog, then you may remember me giving a little teaser of a new brand that was coming to Miss Boss this spring called One Pretty Time! Last time I talked about it we had just received 1 piece which was the stunning “Copper Satin Wrap Dress” which by the way we still have a few left!! After receiving our latest two pieces the “Zan Jumpsuit” and “Maza Jumpsuit” I can safely say that this is going to be my go to brand for wedding/event attire! Their pieces are stunning, the material is luxurious, and the quality is next level! I’ve always been one to get super excited at any opportunity to dress up, but more often than not I find it so difficult to find something that I love here in Edmonton, and as a result find myself shopping elsewhere, which is unfortunate because I LOVE shopping local! So if you have any events or weddings coming up this spring/ summer I’m excited to announce that we have you covered!!!
Jumpsuits are one of those things that never look good on a hanger, so check out our try on videos below to see how these look on! Sabrina is wearing the one shoulder “Maza Jumpsuit” in black which features an oversized bow that drapes over the shoulder and down the back. I absolutely love this look and it retails for just $198. This would make the perfect statement outfit for a black tie event!!!
I am wearing the strapless “Zan Jumpsuit” in a rich dark blue colour and it retails for $170. This jumpsuit features an off the shoulder drapey fabric that can be tide in a knot or a bow, and it also has sewn in cups so you don’t need to wear a strapless bra, which is a major bonus!!!
We have SO many exciting new items arriving to Miss Boss on the daily, so make sure to stay tuned for a full feature on next week’s blog! Some of the things you can watch out for are all your favourite classic pieces from Jackson Rowe; including the girlfriend tee, the knotty tee, and the classic crew in multiple colours! A massive shipment from Z Supply, AND the much anticipated Rebecca King 3 way sweaters and Techno Suit jackets…which BY THE WAY is back, and better than ever with a slightly new look!!
