Here we are! My 8th Fix! I was very excited to tear open the box to see what Kallie picked out for me this month. I did not give her any requests this month except for the colorful midi skirt...so she had free reign beyond that!
What I received this Fix -- a shirt, two dresses, jeans, and earrings...let's dive in!
41Hawthorn : Filbert Abstract Striped Henley Blouse -- Blue -- $58.00
This shirt is a lot of fun! I really like the fit, and the pattern is bright and different. I love the sleeves and the length of the shirt and the fact that there is no collar. I feel very comfortable when I'm wearing it. It can be dressed up for work, or dressed down for casual. VERDICT: IT'S A KEEPER!
Papermoon : Hadley Shift Dress -- Pink -- $58.00
The colors in this dress are pretty...the fabric is super soft...it has a great liner underneath. But unfortunately that is where the perks stop on this one. The dress kind of swallowed me up and wasn't very flattering. The linear pattern had an odd way of shifting to the side when I moved, as well. While the dress was VERY comfy, it just isn't the look I'm going for. VERDICT: RETURNED.
Taylor : Fannie Striped Dress -- Green -- $138.00
I had high hopes for this one! It is a gorgeous green and navy combo. The style is very cute, but the fit just didn't work out. The bottom half of the dress was a bit big, but the top half was very small/tight. I was not able to zip it all the way up, and the arm holes were very restrictive. Kind of bummed. Another downfall is that this price is out of my set price range, so I most likely wouldn't have bought it even if it had fit. VERDICT: RETURNED.
Bay to Baubles : Mayla Stone Crystal Stud Earrings -- Light Green -- $38.00
Oh these earrings!! I love them! This photo doesn't quite capture that green color correctly, but it is delicious! I was thrilled about these, because they are VERY me...but then I remembered that I just purchased some Premier Jewelry earrings in these same colors. Gold and the light green, to match a necklace that I have. Because of those, I couldn't justify purchasing these as well. BUMMED. VERDICT: RETURNED.
Level 99 : Giovanni Straight Leg Jean -- LightPink -- $98.00
These jeans intrigued me. This color? What is it? Pink? Purple? They have a grayish tint, and befuddled me. This color actually looked pretty awful against my pale skin. Weird. The fit of the jeans was a bit snug, but since I'm currently in the process of hopefully get back to my goal weight -- these would have fit fine in a few weeks. I liked the length and style...but this color was a big big no. VERDICT: RETURNED.
As for the midi skirt, Kallie is still on the hunt. There are apparently some black ones, but she isn't finding a fun colored skirt like I've requested. It's not a huge need that I have, so I can be patient on this one!
So, Fix #8 -- it ended up being a 1/5, though easily could have been a 2/5 if I hadn't just purchased those other earrings. Could even possibly have been a 3/5 if the jeans had been a different color. So overall, I call this one a success!!
I'm excited to participate in a blog link up with the Kinder Craze blog!
