The one thing that I wish I could do more was spend more time shopping for cute clothing for myself….but lets face it as a SAHM and now a full time collage student, I don’t really have time to get to the mall and shop, so I don’t get the luxury of having all the stylish new clothing all my friends have but the one thing I do have is time to shop online and to be quite honest the clothing items I find online I think are much more stylish than that of which you can get at the mall and best of all I can shop online while my son naps and when I get a few spare moments. Recently while looking for some new stylish tops I happened to stumble upon Stellarocco and it was love at first sight, and when Dina offered to let me review a top of my choosing I was very excited and couldn’t wait to share them with all of you!
About Stellarocco (taken from website):
Stellarocco is an artsy, yet versatile line of t-shirts and tops with modern botanical silhouettes. Described by many as a line of "pretty, everyday tees", Stellarocco has become a favorite for its original designs, ultra soft cottons and affordable price points.
Designer/Owner Dina Paulos was inspired to start Stellarocco after living a year abroad in Auckland, and experiencing the city's vibrant independent clothing and art community. Utilizing her experience in the Fashion Industry and love of modern design, Dina focuses on creating nature-inspired designs with a modern look. Her favorite pieces incorporate subtle metallics, brights and tonal ink colors on tops that can be easily dressed up or down.
Each original Stellarocco design is paired with specific colors and various 100% cotton shirt styles, then silk screened by hand to give each shirt a slightly unique look.
I was given the opportunity to choose a top from Stellarocco to review and let’s just say it was a very difficult decision but after some time I finally decided on the Paper Flower top in Eggplant! My shirt arrived very quickly and I know that it looks great online but in person it was even more beautiful! I love that my mail man comes early in the morning so I was able to wear my top the day it arrived!!! The one thing that I absolutely love about this top is how well it fits and that it’s thin enough to wear with our Arkansas weather on those days when it’s hit or miss about how cold/warm that its going to be and it works wonderful as a layering piece!
Since receiving my beautiful top from Stellarocco I’ve worn it several times and I’ve gotten several compliments on how unique and pretty it is and how it really fits in with my personal style. I really have to brag here about the durability and quality of this top, since I’ve worn it quite a bit it’s also had to be put through the wash/dry process and it’s held up wonderfully, I do machine wash it on cold but as with most of my favorite tops I line dry to eliminate the chance of shrinkage. The top still looks brand new and still fits as it did the day it arrived. I’ve bought tops in the past from expensive mall stores only to have it fall apart after just a few washes but that was so not the case with my Stellarocco top. This top has quickly became my go to top when I’m going out with the girls or when Chad and I decide on a movie night because not only does this top look great on me ( if I may say so myself) but it’s very soft and super comfortable….absolutely everything I look for in a top!
I’m super pleased with my chosen top from Stellarocco! It was love at first sight and I’m still very much in love with my top as well as several of the other tops available from Stellarocco. I will most defiantly be purchasing more of these one of a kind unique tops in the very near future because they are super comfortable and very durable…just what I look for in all of my tops and I also enjoy being to shop for my Stellarocco in the comfort of my own home without having to try to make it to the mall!
If you are looking for unique one of a kind, stylish tops I totally recommend checking out the wonderful selection of tops available from Stellarocco, I’m sure you will find the perfect top to add to your wardrobe and trust me you wont be sorry!
