I love the cards showing suggestions on how to wear each piece!
Plus, I always look forward to my personal note from my stylist, Kalesa! She is SO awesome, and I have a surprise challenge for her (say what?!) - more on that in a minute!
And here we go!
1. Edmond Chevron Print Henley Shirt from Pixley
I love the way this Henley shirt feels; it's very bouncy. However, I wasn't a fan of the pattern, so I had to send it back. (In every picture I'm wearing the scalloped lace top extender from Grace & Lace, and I promise that I really don't wear it with everything in everyday life!)
2. Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse from Collective Concepts
Loved the color and wanted to keep it, but it was over $50, so I would have needed to really love it at that price. So, sadly, this cute top was returned as well. However, props to my stylist, Kalesa, for sending me items that fit my style profile so well! I always ask for shirts and sweater that I can layer, and I ask that the shirts not be tight. Kalesa, you're doing great!
3. Flynn Colorblock Sleeveless Blouse from 41Hawthorn
This is not a thin top, which I love about it (the pink one above was a little thin). Kinda having returner's remorse now; yes, I did return this one, too. It's beautiful, but I just didn't have much to layer with it. I have dark sweaters already, so I'm looking for more colorful tops to wear underneath them. But, I really do like this one, and if I had a million dollars I certainly would have added it to my wardrobe. ;)
4. Benfield Heathered Drape Front Cardigan from Caramela
Talk about soft! Y'all, this comfy, cozy sweater is the best thing ever! Kalesa stuck with my desired length (long enough to cover what I like to cover ;) ), and it's just fabulous! Too bad I had to return it...
I kept that sucker! It's perfect!
5. Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan from 41Hawthorn
This long sweater (love that length!) was very soft, and the color was pretty, but the arms were a little long and the material was a little too thin for me. So, this sweater wasn't a keeper, unfortunately.
Okay, so I mentioned a surprise challenge for Kalesa, and y'all, she has no clue who I am - ha! But, I know that she reads the blog, so, Kalesa, here we go, girl!
I'm going to request one specific item in my future fixes (like that striped sweater I put in my note earlier to ya), but the rest is UP TO YOU! I want to let loose and be styled by a pro, so whatever you think will look good on me, send it my way! Don't bother with my Pinterest board, you just have fun creating a look for me! I promise to be open and give each piece a shot, scout's honor.
(Am I crazy?! Perhaps, but this makes it more fun!)
So, this month, I ended up keeping 1 out of 5 items from this box, BUT, I'm extremely happy with what I kept AND happy with the price I paid for that sweater. Want to guess how much it cost in the end?
Go on... guess! ;)
Okay, I'll just tell ya.
The sweater was $58, but I had my styling fee discount of $20 (you get a $20 discount EACH time you keep at least one thing in your box!), plus I had a referral credit of $30 (thank you so much for using my link to sign up; I truly appreciate it, friends!), so I paid just $8 for that super-soft-and-cozy-cuddle-up sweater! Yes! $8! Crazy, right?! Yeah, crazy-AWESOME!
And you can totally do this, too! Click here to sign up with my link to get started. Then you can share YOUR link with your peeps, and YOU will be getting a great discount on incredibly fun clothes that arrive at your doorstep! You pay just $20 one-time to get going, and then each time you keep an item from your box, that $20 you paid comes off that box's total. So easy and, yes, I'll say it again, FUN!
And I need some good ol' fun right now.
We have lots of things going on in our family, which I hope to blog about soon. Lots of BIG changes and new directions. Heavy things. Things that are not fun. So, when something like this comes along, something fun, I'm so blessed that my sweet husband gives me the go-ahead. Anyway, we're waiting for test results to come back on Anna (possibly this week), and then I'll share more about her journey with you.
In the meantime, thanks for stopping by, friends!
I appreciate you!
