Style Inspiration: In My Joi/Foxcroft Review

TGIF all!

A few weeks ago Foxcroft contacted to me to review some shirts from their plus collection. I picked a tartan plaid & green polka dot shirt to review. The shirts are described as “wrinkle free” which intrigued me. I’m not a fan of  ironing so anything claiming to be “wrinkle free” is a huge plus in my book.  When I got the shirts I was happy to see that they looked exactly like their pictures online. I immediately  started to think about what to wear with them.  No sooner than I thought that, I came across this post from  In My Joi (one of my favorite bloggers!) where she sported this fab outfit:

I instantly fell in love with her look and decided to put my own spin on her outfit by wearing the plaid shirt with my red pants suit today. The shirt, so far it has remained  somewhat “wrinkle free” as I write this.  I say “somewhat” because there is some creasing where I fold my arms and where I tucked my shirt into my pants. Honestly I don’t think creasing around the elbow and waist areas can be adverted. When I wear the shirt again, I will  run a warm iron over the creased parts  to smooth them out but that’s about it. Another plus for me was when I buttoned up the shirt it didn’t pull or gape open around my bust. This is a huge deal for me because I tend to shy away from button up shirts because of this issue. It feels good to know I finally have some shirts that fit properly in that area.  The sleeves weren’t tight around my thick arms and I was able to move freely without feeling constricted.   Foxcroft shirts are not inexpensive (they range between $88-92) BUT if you want quality you sometimes gotta spend a little dough.  If you think about it,  spending $20 each time to replace a poor quality shirt will add up over time. For me, I rather pay money for one quality shirt that I wont have to keep replacing over and over again. Bottom line, Foxcroft makes quality shirts and I would recommend you give them a try!

Have a wonderful weekend!

    Love the androgynous look. I also get shirt gap around my chest. It’s always really exciting to find a shirt that doesn’t gape.
