Kiki La'Rue

I don't known if y'all have heard about this little online boutique, but the blog world and Facebook are buzzing about it. Many of the blogs I follow have done giveaways, but unfortunately I never won one :( But it did make me check this little shop out and oh man am I glad I did! So here's the deal. The girl who runs the shop, I believe her name is Becka (I tried to verify, but FB is being dumb), is fantastic! Not only does she have the lowest prices you'll find on boutique clothing, but if you find a lower price on the same piece she'll match it AND give you an additional 10% off. I mean c'mon! This girl really knows how to treat her clients. 

Here's how my experience went. I ordered the Chasing Waterfalls top in yellow. 

I found it in her sale section, so the only size available was small, which made me nervous. I'm a size small again in my torso and such, but b/c I'm still breastfeeding, I'm a Large or X-Large in the bust. The top was so cute, I ordered it anyway, with the total expectation that I would be disappointed. I definitely was not disappointed!

The top fits perfectly! It's loose fitting, without making me look bulky. It's a one shoulder sleeves top, and the side without the sleeve usually tends to sag on me, but this doesn't. It's got just a little bit of elastic in to help it stay put and keep it's shape. 

Please ignore the nursing bra strap. It obviously won't be there when I wear this for real

The color is also beautiful. I wasn't worried about the yellow in a sense that it would look bad against my skin. Yellow is one of the colors I look best in. I was concerned that maybe it would be too yellow, and not be able to be worn in the fall or winter. When I opened it I was pleasantly surprised. It's more of a mustard with hints of gold. It's gorgeous! 

Also, ignore my dirty bathroom.

And can we talk about the packaging? It's too cute! It arrived in this fabulous hot pink, shimmery envelope. Then the shirt it's self was wrap in pink tissue paper with a cute little sticker.

LOVE the packaging!

I'm a goober, and took the picture upside down. Ooops

After I had ordered the top, I was checking out the shops Facebook page and they had a code for free shipping. I made a comment saying how I wished I had seen that 20 minutes earlier, just trying to make a joke since it was funny. Just my luck that I would find a free shipping code 20 minutes after I order something. You wanna know what Becka did? She gave me a shipping credit on my account after the fact! She didn't have to do that, and it was completely unexpected. This girl really knows what she's doing.

Charlotte was digging the packaging as well

She's a better model than me. Obviously ;)

If you haven't already, I encourage you to check Kiki La'Rue out!

p.s. These opinions are totally my own. I was in no way compensated or rewarded for this post. My love for Kiki L'aRue is legit :)
