First, I finally got a piece of jewelry sent to me. It is a pave linked chain necklace with yellow enamel for $38. I loved the length and the look of this necklace. I never would have picked yellow if it was sitting there with other colors, but I absolutely love the yellow. It will add a nice pop of color to whatever I wear with it. It was a keeper.
The other item I was sent that I decided to keep was this galway bird print button up blouse for $58. Again, I don’t think I would have pick this shirt off a rack if I was shopping in a store, but loved it. I loved the shape of the blouse along with the print. I especially love the 3/4 length sleeves. The blouse, by itself, is a little low in the front from what I normally wear. However, the blouse is sheer, so I need to wear something under it anyway, so no problem. I will just pair it with a shirt that has a higher neck line.
Next was a beautiful red (more of a rusty red) Erika mixed knit crew neck sweater for $88. I was in love with the color along with the mixed texture, but there was one main problem with this sweater. It had these 2 notches in the front right at the bottom. These notches drew attention right to my hips which is definitely not a place that I want to draw attention to on my body. I was truly sad that this sweater didn’t work because I liked so much about it.
My fourth item was a black northridge cowlneck jersey top for $68. On my invoice, my stylist suggested I pair this with the Kensie jeans I kept from my first shipment and add the chain necklace from this shipment also. She said it would be “a fun casual look for you”. I love dolman style tops and loved the fit of this one with the exception of the cowlneck. I struggle with finding items with a cowlneck that work for me. The neck goes too low on me and doesn’t look good with a cami underneath. If this shirt didn’t have the cowlneck, I totally would have kept it. I loved the material. It was a comfy waffle type knit. I must admit, I would have preferred a color other than black, but still would have kept it if the neckline was different.
My last item was a stellan stripped open drape cardigan for $68. This is the one item I did not like at all. The large bold stripes where not flattering at all on me. They actually made me look bigger. The style also seemed to make me look better. It would have been interesting to see if I would have liked better in a solid color. This cardigan just seemed to completely overwhelm my body.
So all in all, this fix was more of a hit. I am really hoping for a skirt or pants with my next fix. The one pair of pants I have been sent, I love. I have been sent dresses, but none of them worked which is usually how it goes for me. Skirts tend to be a much better option for my body rather than dresses. What do you think about what I was sent?
