I told you last week that I was taking tailgating gear for Reviewers Retreat thanks to Meesh and Mia. Since I have gotten back from the conference, it is time to give my thoughts on the outfit I received from them. Let me begin this review by putting something out there. I live in southwestern Virginia. However, I don’t consider myself a true fan of Virginia Tech. In fact, it’s been since I started dating my boyfriend that I even watched one of their football games or even felt neutral for them. Haha! That being said, I wanted to wear clothing for a local team and I wanted something I thought I could put to use after the conference. My boyfriend’s family loves to watch VT games and are VT fans, so I knew I could wear the shirt again come fall.
Now, on to my review of the stuff. I picked the Virginia Tech tie back finale top in maroon for the shirt because I thought the back looked interesting online. The two little bows add some character and appeal to the outfit I think. I was a bit surprised by the front of the shirt though. It doesn’t look exactly like it’s pictured on the site as it just has VT in sparkles instead of a print logo. However, I enjoyed the sparkle much more than a simple print. So, that didn’t bother me at all. I think the shirt looked well enough on me in the front. I did notice that the back ended up showing my bra and I wasn’t expecting that either. I didn’t let that bother me too much though and I was still able to enjoy the tailgating party while wearing it.
For the bottom, I thought the Viginia Tech denim mini skirt in black looked cute. I love that it has the VT logo in stones again on the right back pocket. It makes a plain skirt really nice. All of my roomies thought the skirt was really cute. However, I am sad to report that I didn’t get to wear the skirt to the actual party. You see, I changed into this lovely outfit as I was getting ready for the party and still in the room. I was walking around the room and I realized that my side felt a little breezy. I looked down and noticed that the zipper on the skirt had broken somehow and the skirt was open, revealing my skin. So, I took the skirt off and put my black pants on for the party. I have my mom looking at the skirt to see if she can fix it, but I’m not sure she can. I don’t what happened to the zipper but I’m glad I had something else to wear to the party.
Overall, the clothing from Meesh and Mia is really cute. Their clothing is perfect for a tailgating party or game viewing. I don’t know if I would recommend the skirt since the zipper gave out on me, but it could have just been mine. The shirt though is awesome. I really like it and am looking forward to wearing it again. Where do you get clothing to show your support for your favorite sports teams?
Disclosure: I received the skirt and shirt for free. No compensation was received. The opinions expressed are my own.
