I literally could not contain my excitement for this fix
. I have been in a major clothing rut and I was so
excited to get some new clothes! My poor mail carrier probably thinks I am the biggest creep because I was stalking his truck outside my house waiting for him to bring the box up. As soon as he walked away, I retrieved it, tore it open and promptly proceeded to have a fashion show within about 35 seconds flat.
I had asked Lisa for summer tops and a petite length maxi dress. Everything I had asked for she sent including remembering that I had mentioned in my last note to her that I was looking to incorporate more blue into my wardrobe.
On to the (fashion) show…
Pixley Woodruff Tie Shoulder Chambray Top- This top was a “no” for me as soon as I picked it up out of the box. It seemed pretty loose and the denim material was strange and something I never owned before. However, I tried it on and it grew on me a little. My hesitation was the boxy shape of it. Then I took pictures for my blog and it grew on me even more. It is super soft and could be perfect for playing with the kids at the park. This shirt is a prime example of don’t judge a fix at first glance because this one is a keeper!
Gilli Tom Knit Maxi Dress-
Lisa found me a petite length maxi!!! I have been asking for this for a couple fixes. I was excited because I have another Gilli Maxi
that I blogged about in my favorite pieces you’ve never seen post
and I love it. I got this one unfortunately, it is just not my style. I love the cut out in the back and it is so lightweight. The length is perfect. It just cuts into me weird at the waist and the pattern/colors are not something I can see myself wearing often.
Pixley Rasmussen Button Detail Tank- Another blue piece, which I really appreciated but the bottom line is while it was out of my comfort zone, it is just not my style. I also had fit issues in the bust area- It was pretty tight not very comfortable. It was cute paired with white shorts I got from Francesca’s but I knew deep down that it would sit in my closet and not get much use.
Le Lis Lira Woven Sleeve Knit Top-
I have received a few Le Lis pieces in previous fixes- a black and grey long sleeve knit top
that was a staple this past winter and a short sleeve coral top
that is currently one of my favorites. I was psyched to get another one and couldn’t wait to try it on because it is just my stay at home mom style. It is super casual, which is what my wardrobe is lacking right now. I paired it with some black shorts from express, threw on some of my favorite reefs and I was ready to go. Yes, I wore this before I even wrote my blog post.
Loveapella Lenay Lace Shoulder Knit Top- I want to love this one so badly! The color, lace detail on the shoulder and cut out in the back are all SO my style! However, the material is rayon and not very forgiving. Even when trying it on, I found myself pulling and adjusting it constantly. I am still up in the air on how I can make this work and am holding out until the last minute on this one.
