PopBasic Review: Sunday Collection


Subscription boxes are the latest internet sensation. Whether it's clothes, jewellery, cosmetics or even food, you can get almost anything delivered to your doorstep monthly in little nifty boxes. We're embarrassed to admit that we have never tried one of these subscription boxes before. "Why?" you ask, well because we're not prepared to commit to something that can often be a hit or miss, especially since you don't get to preview the box beforehand. We stumbled across Popbasic a while back and immediately fell in love with the concept behind their monthly collections. Like a subscription box, you still receive stylist picked pieces (in a cute little box of course!), but there aren't any of the other usual strings attached. So we jumped at the opportunity to review and style their Sunday Collection.

The website offers monthly micro collections which centre on the idea of building your wardrobe around timeless and basic (hence the name!) pieces. If you've followed us for long enough, you'll realise by now that we are big advocates of investing in versatile and staple pieces that will carry you across seasons and transcend trends. As we always say, it's all about making the most of your existing wardrobe with smart styling and smart accessorising.


Trust us when we say that this Blueberry Silk Blouse is the softest thing we have ever felt. We've never owned anything that is 100% silk before, so we were quite impressed with the quality. Often, shopping for blouses can be quite a headache for us with our petite build making it difficult for us to find sleeves that fit our arms nicely and blouses that actually look like blouses rather than dresses! So we were relieved when we tried on the blouse. The sizing chart is very true to size. Following the measurement they had online, we ordered an XS, and the blouse fits us perfectly!

As you will see from our outfits, a basic blouse like this is is such a handy piece to own, because it goes with almost anything you throw it at!




We have a slight, ok a big obsession with wishbones, so this ring and bangle set got us really excited! These White Gold plated pieces are the perfect accessories for any and every outfit, which is why we've chosen to include them in all four outfits. It's a shame though that both the ring and bracelet were quite big on us.



Casual Chic
If you're ever in doubt, throw on a pair of light wash denim! A blouse and jeans are the perfect no-fail, no-fuss choice. We love the contrast between the different shades of blue, and of course the much needed pop of colour! Rolled up jeans and a clutch will take you from casual chick to casual chic faster than you can say pop!

*Blouse, bracelet and ring: Popbasic
Jeans: Just Jeans
Bag: Fiorelli
Shoes: Sandler


Happy
This ensemble screams lazy day at the beach. Just imagine having Pharrel William's Happy cranked up while working on your tan (safely of course!). Whether you want to layer the blouse like we did, or throw it over your cossie, it makes for a great beach cover-up. Again, you might have noticed the light wash denim trend. You can't deny the fact that the navy blue blouse and light denim are a match made in heaven!


*Blouse, bracelet and ring: Popbasic
Top: Dotti
Shorts: Cotton On
Shoes: Ipanema

Green With Envy
The fitting of the blouse makes it ideal for tucking in to skirts, shorts and pants. While other tops can have you looking frumpy, this silk blouse flatters in all the right places. Here we've changed it up and stepped away from the denim to show you how versatile this piece is. Another tried and true way of styling a basic blouse is to pair it with patterned bottoms. Experiment with loose rather than short form fitting shorts for a more relaxed look.

*Blouse, bracelet and ring: Popbasic
Shorts: Portmans
Shoes: Betts



Ode to Office 
Put a spin on office wear by tucking the blouse into a bright, note bright, high waisted skirt. There is no better way to stand out from the sea of black and white suits than with a splash of colour.

 Dressing for work doesn't mean you have to neglect accessorising all together. The subtle White Gold plating makes the wishbone set oh so office appropriate, tying in perfecly with the sliver detailing on the shoes.
*Blouse, bracelet and ring: Popbasic
Earrings: Lovisa
Skirt: Supre



 Overall, we were very impressed with this collection and would definitely try out their future collections!

    1. Haha! Trust us, it is as easy as it looks Selina. You just need a few statement pieces like a bright skirt or shorts or even a necklace to transform the one item into some entirely different! We'd love to be your stylists :) We definitely recommend giving Popbasic a go
