The Polished Pearls:
Growing up together we always felt like we had similar styles and similar body types. Sharing clothes with each other was a love/hate relationship. We loved having double the wardrobe, but our sister instincts would take over when new clothes arrived and were ready to wear. Of course, we constantly fought over who wore what and when. It was like playing a game of tug-of-war, trying to figure out whose event was most important because this was always the deciding factor on which one of us got to wear the new item first.
Starting this blog has given us an opportunity to explore our styles and body types more, and we have found that we both share some similarities but a lot of differences. For example, Whitney has an hourglass figure and her style is more classy with some glam. Whereas, Shalese has a rectangular figure and her style is more edgy/casual. Who knew? My Sister’s Closet has been one of our favorite boutiques and websites ever since it opened because we feel like they really focus on providing trendy clothing for various styles, body types, and ages of women.
Our looks we created using these darling dresses found on My Sister’s Closet’s website were inspired by what we have personally learned about our body types and styles. Just like a polished pearl takes time to be created in a clam, we have taken time to figure out what clothing works for our uniqueness and individuality. Every “pearl” is unique in different shapes and sizes but all are beautiful. Take time to find your personal style!
Rectangle body types look great with flowing dresses, so she picked My Sister’s Closet’s Oatmeal Crotchet Detail Dress ($34.00 before discount code). Her style is a bit more casual so she paired it with this amazing turquoise, red and gold necklace and these fabulous platforms!
Hourglass body types work great with a well-defined waist. Although Whit is prego, and is growing a darling baby bump, defining the waist still looks best with her body type. She picked My Sister’s Closet’s Ivory Lace Fit Flare Dress ($42.00 before discount). Because her style is a bit more classy, she paired it with floral heels and gold jewelry, then completed it with a tan Prada hand bag.
**We strongly suggest exploring My Sister’s Closet’s new arrivals because they have some amazing pieces worthy of adding to any wardrobe! We were as excited as an eager kid in a candy store as we explored all the different pieces on their website. Right now, My Sister’s Closet is offering our followers 10% off their entire purchase by using code POLISHEDPEARLS at checkout. We hope all you pearls enjoy!
