You tell a stylist what you like in clothes and accessories. That stylist picks out 5 items they think you would like (or maybe push you out of your comfort zone a little) and sends you a box. You try on the clothes, at home, with your existing wardrobe. Keep and pay for what you want, return what you don’t.
I received this box over the weekend, and (*SPOILER ALERT!) you’ll notice that ALL of the pictures are just shots of the clothes on the floor… none of me wearing them. I basically didn’t really love anything…. I liked the idea of a few things, but not enough to buy them… a bit of a disappointment. But considering all the fun Lilly stuff I bought a few weeks ago, my budget was happy!
But I really wasn’t motivated to photograph any outfits.
Sorry for being a Debbie Downer.
Anyway, let’s just get right down to the items, shall we?
1. Kut From the Kloth – Callie White Denim Jacket – $78 – RETURNED
This denim jacket was one of the few things that I could have kept. Who doesn’t love a good denim jacket? But then I got thinking about little hands that may have just finished eating yogurt… or black beans… or goldfish crackers… and imagined said white jacket covered with little hand prints. Plus, I already have a regular denim jacket, and couldn’t justify a second in my wardrobe right now. So I returned it.
2. Pixley – Lionel Striped Embroidered Tank – $38 – RETURNED
I’ll be honest – I didn’t even really want to try this on. I saw it sitting in the box and thought “meh….”. The colors look better in this picture than in real life. The yellow was more mustard than cheery. And it’s really just a casual shirt that IF I wanted, I could find at Target. Or Khols. But I gave it a shot. And I returned it. It didn’t float my boat.
3. Fun2Fun – Clarise Mixed Print Tank – $38 – RETURNED
The print on this shirt was pretty! But it was too blousy for me. AND it was too short. So even if I loved it, but asked for a smaller size, I’d still have a short shirt issue, which bugs me.
4. Papermoon – Waters Printed Maxi Dress – $68 – RETURNED
This maxi dress… I think this is the one thing were people will be shouting at their computers saying “KEEP IT! KEEP IT!”. Maxi dresses always look so comfortable and easy. And this was! But I’m not a maxi dress girl. It made me feel and look really short. It was comfortable! The fabric was lightweight and the kind that would wash easily and come out wrinkle free. Win! But I didn’t love it on. So why keep it?
5. Just Black – Aaron Distressed Skinny Jeans – $78 – RETURNED
I liked the idea of a distressed straight leg jean. These are like the “cool girl” version of me. But they couldn’t get up past my hips…. and really would have liked them in a darker color. But I’m just not a “cool girl”. I’d just look like I was trying to hard, right?
So that’s it! Yep, didn’t keep a thing, but don’t think was completely off base. I have in my profile that I like printed/patterned tops and love jackets. I also think the maxi came because I requested a patterned skirt this time. I also felt like the prices were reasonable. But overall, not a win.
I’ll be skipping next month’s box because we are out of town a lot in May and hate to mess up returning the items.

What do you think? What would you have kept? Think I made the right decision?
