Box 2 hath arrived!
I lowered the price point on this one to the minimum for all categories.
1) A navy knit top with a heavy lace hem and a string/tie in the back.
Nice, flattering, good fit, LOVED the lace … but the tie tangled in my hair and was a super duper no-go. Alas.
2) A black knit top with a twist in the back.
Boring in the front and the fun twist was totally hidden by my hair. No-go.
3) A heavy white long-sleeved shirt with a HUGE rope/string lace-up the front.
Huge rope/string was super awkwardly huge. Like … as wide as my thumb huge. Also, the neckline it was lacing went waaaay down, so it would have needed an undershirt. No-go.
4) An ADORABLE silk kimono top in a blue and gold pattern.
Flattering and amazing … but every three steps, it gossammer’d its way off my shoulders. SO SAD. But I had to let it go. Practicality first!
5) A clingy/stretchy black long sleeved cover-up.
Originally I didn’t think I’d like it, but it was SUPER comfy and the hemline does this flattering swoopy curve thing that involves POCKETS so … yeah. I kept it.
Yes, but it may be my last one. It’s been fun, but also expensive and I’m just not a clotheshorse. I’m fine wearing a $15 top I got from J.C. Penney that I might see someone else wearing … or even a $5 top from a resale shop, without cringing or shame.
I did request to get two bottoms in this next box and specified that I like boot cut. We shall see how they do … I’ve been told sometimes they hit the jackpot on pants that fit, and I hate pants shopping.
So! One more box for sure, but perhaps the last one. We shall see!
