You know that moment of excitement you feel when you spot your favorite monthly magazine mixed in your pile of mail? Now imagine that this time, it is a pair of shoes arriving at your door…Every. Single. Month.
Celebrities are pairing up with stylists to bring you a monthly subscription to clothing (StyleMint by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen), jewelry (JewelMint by Kate Bosworth), skincare (BeautyMint by Jessica Simpson), and shoes (ShoeMint by Rachel Bilson). Signing up is free. You pay for an item only if you choose to buy it. To register, you answer a few questions, like who your style icon is, and the website determines your “style profile” and fills up a “showroom” with products unique to your own taste. There are new collections coming out all the time, so if you don’t see anything special, you can always skip a month.
StyleMint began when the Olsen twins decided to reinvent the basic T. The brand now has well-made basics that can easily be dressed up or down. Because I can’t resist clothing that is both comfortable and stylish, I had to create my own “style profile.” Once my “showroom” was created, I was immediately drawn to the white Willow T for $29.99. Going into the fall season, this shirt would look beautiful paired with a pair of high-rise dark wash denim and a jewel toned blazer for an added pop of color.
