The stylist assigned to me, Gretchen, scheduled a time via email for us to chat by phone. We discussed my style for probably 15-20 minutes and also talked about any special items I was looking for. For me, I was looking to add a few key spring pieces to my wardrobe.
I received an email several days later letting me know my trunk was ready to review and I couldn’t wait to hop online to see what was waiting for me. At first I was a tad disappointed as many of the blouses she picked for me were quite pricey. I just cannot justify the $100 on a top unless it is just out of this world because I would feel the need to keep it forever! I easily removed those items from my trunk and noted the reason.
I was feeling a little dejected as I assumed my trunk would arrive much smaller but much to my surprise Gretchen listened and modified my trunk to include lots of great tops in a more reasonable price range for me.
Here was the first top I tried. I wasn’t super crazy about the pattern but the cut originally appeared a possible win. Unfortunately this was a big no. It ran a little too short and really just did nothing for me. Returned
Next up were these NYDJ jeans and while the fit in the waist was great and the length perfect, I did not care for the style at all. I’d actually like to say, in this case, I would have liked my jeans a little more like my daughters. Returned
Peplum tops are all the rage right now and I was super excited to see this one. I loved the pattern but as you can see it also ran a little short. Somehow my frame just doesn’t seem to really love peplum. Peplum top here. Returned
Would love to have shown you these white pants but friends I couldn’t even get them on! I’m not sure if there was a sizing problem or what but in my regular size I couldn’t even get them over my thighs.
Oh how I loved this top!! I really wanted this one to work for me. I loved everything about it right up until I put it on. My arms are weird. I can wear sleeveless but if there is the slightest cap on the sleeves it makes my arms look so much bigger. Hinge flutter sleeve similar here. Returned
I tried several angles and several different pants because I so wanted this top to work!
This simple Kendra Scott just did nothing for me. Granted it worked with so many of the items she picked for me but if I’m buying Kendra it is going to be a fun color. No? Returned
This color is one of my faves and as soon as I put this on I knew I would be splurging. The fit was perfect, great fabric and it is very flattering. NYDJ Blouse in multiple colors and prints here.
Not so flattering in this view but I had to show you the back! Love this NYDJ henley top and it has totally found it’s home in my closet.
And y’all, it’s like she knew it would be perfect because she also sent in pink! I really wanted to splurge and keep both but in the end decided to send this one back. It was a little more sheer than the teal. NYDJ blouse in multiple colors and prints here. Returned
I’m seriously wondering at this very moment what in the world I was thinking because I returned these! I have two pairs of these shoes in a flat style and love them. I really thought I needed these as well but in the end just couldn’t justify the price tag. Find them on sale here. Returned
If you can’t tell by my face what I thought of this let me tell ya…yuck. I know the longer jackets are in style right now and you would think with my height this would work but it so did not! It was boxy and just, no. I did love the color! Long Halogen jacket here. Returned
I told Gretchen I was looking for a new black jacket but she sent this Halogen in navy for me to try. While it was a great fit and I loved the zipper detail, I already have a navy blazer. Halogen jacket here. Returned
Peplum and cap sleeves again…let’s just say remove this from any options for me! Not something I can pull off at all. Black peplum on sale here. Returned
Hmm….I’m still not sure what I thought about these navy pants. They fit pretty well but I recently purchased a navy pair as well. Returned
As soon as I saw this skirt I was hoping it would work and y’all it did!!! I love it. I’m still working on things to wear with it (and again why did I send back those darn shoes) but I wore it with a white top for Easter and I really loved the way it fit. I have a hard time with pencil skirts sometimes but this one had just the right amount of give to not be too tight through the hips but was snug enough not to ride up. Halogen skirt here.
Isn’t the pattern great! Another piece at home in my closet!
