Red Walmart Scoop Blazer styled by The Wardrobe Consultant

My recent love affair with Walmart

If I do say so myself, I’m a dang good shopper. I take great pride in the fact that I could walk into almost ANY store and find a treasure. However, there is a big difference between finding one or two items and finding a whole slew you want to take home and wear/use ASAP. Sort of like when you go to a restaurant and like one thing on the menu, or want to order the whole left side of the menu – ordering the whole menu is how I’ve been feeling about my shopping experience at Walmart lately.

Yes, this is a sponsored post, and thank you Walmart for supporting my little pieces of the internet. But you all know I would not have taken on this collaboration if I did not firmly and enthusiastically believe in the brand and the products. For that, you always have my promise.

It Started 18 Months Ago…

My Walmart love affair actually started about 18 months before Walmart reached out. I was working with a styling client virtually. She lives in Texas and I’m in Ohio. We had completed the analysis piece of her wardrobe consultation (where we decide what stays, what goes, and what’s missing). And I was on to the shopping/sourcing part of the process. 

My search for a colorful topper to compliment her blue eyes and blond hair (yes, she’s a classic Texas beauty) led me to a turquoise blue blazer from Walmart that truly looked like it could have been a designer piece. Not seeing it in person, I was a little skeptical – but you don’t know if you don’t try, right? And you know what?!? It was FABULOUS! Well made, beautiful hand to the fabric, finely tailored, gorgeous on her, AND only $40! 

A HUGE score! First, no one, and I mean no one would guess that this blazer cost $40. And second, this allowed us to allocate more of her shopping budget to other areas of her wardrobe. A big ‘ol Win/Win, thanks to Walmart!

Fast Forward to Fall 2021

So when Walmart reached out to collaborate this fall I was really excited!
