There has been a surge of online boutiques opening lately, and with the help of social media, we are seeing a lot of brand new brands that we’ve never heard of popping up.

I’ve always struggled with finding high quality and sexy items at the local retailers around me. I find certain cute styles at the junior stores, but they’re usually manufactured with material that’s like 1-ply toilet paper. Super thin and uncomfortable, no one likes that.

In my early 20s, I’d have no problem rocking a sleeveless mini dress with cleavage hanging out. But now that I’m a bit older, I feel like I have to be a bit more modest. I said just a BIT. lol. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still rock a mini dress, but I need the entire outfit to be a bit more “balanced” in terms of how much skin to show (more on this later).

Mystylemode is an online store that I discovered late last year. I fell in love with their sexy yet classy pieces. Everything was body hugging but in higher quality materials and that was just what I was looking for!

Beige Waterfall Trench Coat

I was immediately drawn to their waterfall trench coat. This is one of my most favourite pieces ever, and I’m so glad I got it before it was sold out. I feel like this trench goes with so many things, and it definitely adds a touch of sophistication and class to any outfit.

Funnel Neck Long Sleeve Mini Dress

My second item I’ve received from them is this black funnel neck long sleeve mini dress. I won this from a giveaway they hosted and I was so excited to find out that I won! This dress comes in a variety of colors.

I love the scalloped bottom, which is so in right now. Remember how I mentioned “balance” earlier? Well, the long sleeves and funnel neck definitely balance out the mini skirt for me. The length shows off my legs, but I’m covered up top, so I’m not “all out there”.

It’s still chilly in Toronto right now, so I wore it with thigh high socks and over the knee boots, but I’d totally rock this with open toe stilettos when it gets warmer.

My absolute favorite part though is that this dress is DOUBLE LINED. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened up my package to see this. No worrying about embarrassing flash photography wardrobe mishaps with this!

A majority of Mystylemode’s items are made in the USA, so you know they are better quality than your typical Forever 21 and H&M items.

Besides having awesome clothes, their customer service is top notch also. Monyca, who is a representative for Mystylemode (possibly the owner) seems very personable and is very much about building her brand around customer service. She emailed me personally after I commented on a photo on their Instagram photo in regards to a sale, and she wrote a little note in my last package. I thought it was very super sweet of her.

If you’re looking to add some sexy, high quality, affordable basics into your wardrobe, I definitely recommend checking out.

Do you personally feel that there is a cutoff age for minidresses?
