So, on August 22, I got the scheduled box. As expected, Lauren did pick out some good things. She is really a getting a sense for what I like: soft, flowing, with a touch (OK, more than a touch) of hippie/boho style.
Even though I wasn't planning to buy anything, I did want to try things on and take some pictures for the blog. I waited a couple of days because I was sick this weekend. I wish I could have waited longer, as I still look sick in these pictures! But I have to send the un-purchased items back within three days, so I did what I could.
Here's what I got!
SKIES ARE BLUE Egret 3/4 Sleeve Embroidery Top
OK, let's ignore the fact that I look really pale in this shirt. You'll see that I look pale in most of the items for this month, but that's because I was sick all weekend. I was also having a horrid hair day, so I pulled it back into my "Channeling Ben Franklin" look.
Anyway, I love this top! I love that it's ivory and not white, and I like the detailing. The fabric is soft and cozy, and that's a big plus for me. The sleeves are a little long, but you can button them back to 3/4 length. And I like how the top looks with the grey jeans I got in my first fix.
I know I wasn't supposed to buy anything, but since I was going to lose my $20 styling fee anyway, I decided to keep this one.
SKIES ARE BLUE Zack Raglan Top
Yay! Another cute top! In a moment of returner's regret, I'd written back to Lauren to ask if she could re-send the Le Lis Eliason Lace Back Knit Top from last month's fix. She wasn't able to do that, so she sent me this similar top instead. I love this top, particularly because it feels so good on--warm and soft, perfect for fall.
I'd decided to keep one top, and it ended up being a decision between this one and the other Skies Are Blue top. I finally sent this one back, But who knows ... I may end up with another case of returner's regret on this one.
GILLI Eden Maxi Dress
I liked this dress better before I put it on. It's hard to tell here maybe, but it was too roomy in the top, and too long in the bottom. I'm wearing three-inch heels here, and it still touches the floor. Also, while I love the tie-dye look, I don't know if the light grey/white did much for my skin tone. I think this would look better on me if it were blue or purple instead of grey. I ended up sending this one back.
Speaking of blue tie-dye, let's move on to the next piece!
FUN2FUN Inkerman Tie Dye Top
Does this top scream "Nina" or what? Can you tell that I'm just happier when I have this top on? If money hadn't been an issue this month, I would easily have kept this top. I ended up going with a long-sleeve top since fall is around the corner. Lauren, if this one (or something like it) is around next spring, keep me in mind!
MAVI Anokia Crochet Detail Top
I liked this top, but it was probably my least favorite in this month's fix. Lauren mentioned that it would go well with my skin tone, and I think it does. Again, if money hadn't been an issue this month, I may well have kept this one. Sadly, I had to send it, and three others, back.
