Shopping online is not exactly Sarah and I’s forte, because we fear ill-fitting garments, ficticious sellers, ridiculous shipping prices and just downright dirty quality.

Prabjote from Sophistix came to tell us about Sophistix’s Shop-by-Outfit option which allows you to browse paired garments to save you time, money and brain juice on a lazy day.

It is a nice idea, (especially the money saving part) and we offered to come up with our own outfit for Sophistix!



Sarah chose the Amanda vest set and Dora Skirt.

When the pieces arrived we were pleasantly surprised because the quality was far from crummy. The hems were neat, no loose threads.. They were made of soft, wearable cotton. It wasn’t the kind you get in many online shops – unknown stiff material used as an excuse for cloth. (Doesn’t that icky material get to you? It doesn’t feel nice and doesn’t fall nicely!)



And unlike other online shops the clothes are all tagged “Sophistix” – a nice touch for such affordable clothing. (You’d usually get clothes with no label tag, no size tag, and are of unknown origin.)

Things we appreciate about the website

– The pieces were photographed well to show the appropriate details.
– The pieces were photographed from multi-angles
– There are many many many sizes available
– While there is a general size chart, each garment also has individual measurements from XS-XXL. This allows you to compare the item you fancy to one that you already have and fits well.

We both found stuff we loved and worked into our wardrobes, and we’re sure you would too!

Jo’s outfit coming up!
