There is a new solution on the scene is called Popbasic and its goal is to build your style one micro collection at a time. It is not a subscription service but when each collection is released you have the opportunity to order it after having viewed the pieces online, but they are limited edition so you have to be quick. If you sign up to the notification list you will be one of the first to know when a micro collection is ready for sale.
I recently ordered the Salut Micro Collection and it cost USD 85, but shipping is free world-wide. The order arrived within a week which I was very impressed with. In the box I found two Thank You cards, one of them being handwritten which is such a lovely touch!Shoes of Prey (where you can custom-design your own pair of shoes) and a beautiful clean skin roll on perfume oil which has a lovely scent. It already lives in my handbag.
I was excited about the Salut Micro Collection and I definitely had reason to be. Each piece is stunning and will work so well with other basics that I have. Before ordering I was very indecisive on whether to order the top in XS or S but I'm so glad I went with the S because the Le Breton Long Sleeve Tee is a perfect fit. It's also so comfortable. I am also a gold-lover (not a gold-digger) and the necklace is great on its own or for layering with other pieces. Lucky last is the Latte Leather Clutch which is super spacious. I fit a notebook, a sunglasses case, my big wallet, a Carman's bar (I'm addicted), a hand cream and a lip balm without any problems. It is also super stylish and the colour will go with everything.
I simply had to take Salut out for a spin (pun intended)...still haven't had time for a haircut), and a jiggly arm party.

On a sweet note, we went to a French cafe in our former neighbourhood on Saturday and enjoyed huge bowlachinos which you had to hold with two hands and I had a magnificent Nutella crepe with added strawberries. Somehow, getting the strawberries included made me feel a little bit healthier although I know it's not true. This was one decadent breakfast. Then again, a little bit of Saturday indulgence never hurt anyone.
