Mailbox Mavensssss

Ohhhhh heyyyyy lovelies! :) Soooo... it's another Mailbox Mavens post for you! The Mavens have been doing such a fabulous job styling up all of the awesome pieces that are making their way around the country! Soooo excited to see more!! :) Sooooo.... here's how I restyled a piece from Tabitha of the Fashion Therapist! Amy from the Bargain Hunter Extraordinaire got it first, and then she passed it along to me! Here are the ways those 2 lovely ladies styled this super cool tunic! It's got such awesome rosette-like detailing around the neck!!

Tabitha's take!


Tabitha's challenge to Amy was to style it as an actual tunic.... I think she did a great job! Super cute on both looks!!

Amy's take!


Amy's challenge to me was to try and style it as something completely different then what it's meant for.... i.e. a scarf, etc. Soooooooo here's my take on it! It was pretty tough to do, but I think overall it worked out! In the pics, I don't have it kinda clipped up behind me yet so it's a little gappy.... But what do you think? Does it work as a scarf/neck embellishment lol?






Outfit Deets:
Sweater - F21 $7ish
Tunic/Scarf - Mailbox Maven Tabitha's

P.s Check out Meg's recent Mavens post too! Keep up with all of the Mavens as we style more pieces in the upcoming weeks!

P.p.s Sorry for the super TIRED/craptastic look that I have on my face.... Allergies are kickin' my butt!!!

Ciao bellasssssssssssssssss <3
