Posted on 09 April 2018

Shopping is my thing. I've always loved shopping and I'm good at it. That's why my career choice is perfect for me. I am your best-friend shopper. I help you find the stuff that looks great and don't let you buy the stuff that doesn't. But as shopping changes and time marches on, some of you are just too busy to come into the shop and hang out with me. So...

Carla and I created a program just for you super-busy ladies. It's called Mink via Mail (MVM for short) and we think it's pretty awesome.

We use all your shopping history. We already know what you like, what you hate, and what looks killer on you. We pack those things up into a box with instructions as to how to wear, pair, and incorporate these items into your closet and life. Luckily we know what you have, so we can get pretty specific. And don't worry, shipping is free both ways.

You're not guinea pigs! We've been doing this awhile. For over a year now, Carla and I have been hammering out details so we feel pretty confident that we'll nail this in-home shopping experience for you. Does this sound awesome? Find out more about it here.

Some of you may ask, “What if I live out of town and have never shopped at Mink before?” In these instances, we have provided a special section in our questionnaire to help us get a better idea of your style. Carla and I styled 3 outfits for 3 different lifestyles to give you an example.


LOOK  #1

Our first look is our more business/formal-centric ladies. Shown here is the J.Leigh Cowl dress. One of Carla Mink Designs classic pieces. Depending on the accessories you pair with it, it can go from work to play. This is why I also included the ever popular “collect all of them” 4-Way Cardigans. This cardy is as versatile as the dress; giving you 4 different options on how you can wear it. 


This second look is for our customer who’s looking for more business casual option. I’ve paired this extremely feminine blouse with my favorite black cozy jeans, The Hoxtons by Paige Denim in Black Shadow. These pants are very structured for a skinny jean. They have zero distressing on the wash and defined belt loops and back pockets. These details makes them so easy to sneak into your everyday work options. Throw a cardigan or a blazer on over the top if you need to look a little extra profesh (yes I just made that word up)


Ladies…this is a really great casual look. Cozy doesn’t have to be dumpy or ugly…and more importantly, cozy doesn’t mean wearing gym clothes in public when you have zero intention of going to the gym. Not only is this top and bottom as soft as butter, they are both still structured while feeling super yummy and honestly as comfy as your most stretchy gym clothes. 

There are many more looks, but we know you only have so much time to read this post.

Ladies who have been with us a long, long time. Shopping has changed and it's up to us to change with it. We know that you want to come in person into our shop; you just don't have the time. You can still have a boutique experience, and support a small, women owned business. Just now you can do it from your sofa:)

Love you--
