Well folks, last time was the FIRST time that I didn’t buy anything from my box. I really hemmed and hawed over the jacket, but in the end I went over to Scheels on 45th and found an even nicer one, somewhat similar style to what I originally requested, around the same price, that I like even more. I returned everything and lost my $20 “styling fee.” But, it was NOT a total loss. I learned more about what I like and not and it was a valuable lesson to me to practice keeping only things that actually bring me joy.
So, I scheduled another fix to happen right away, and my box arrived today. Check it out and let me know which things you think I should keep or send back 🙂 I had looked at my account last week when I knew it had shipped so I had a general idea of what I was going to be getting. I made an all new board on pinterest to hopefully get better options and I feel like my stylist this time was really on target for styles.
Aleia Mixed Material Pullover Sweater
I’m gonna just show this one and tell you immediately it was a resounding “sending back” simply because of fit. My daughter was over the moon loving this one, but not.on.me. I obviously have a “rounded” midsection and I look about 8 months pregnant with this one (I most certainly am NOT!) It was also snug in the upper arm and loose by the wrists, weird.

Alan French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan
When I saw online that this was in my box I wasn’t totally sold. I was worried something asymmetrical might look weird on me (recall the aforementioned midsection?) but as I took it out of the box I immediately liked it as did my daughter. Then I tried it on zipped and unzipped. Pretty sure it’ll be a keeper, its very comfy and seems pretty versatile.

Brookline Mix Material Sweater
Super undecided on this one. I request more purple, it fits just fine, and looks like its nice quality. Question is, does is spark joy?
Morgan Mix Knit Raglan Top
I was really looking forward to this one. I saw it in the box in the color I’d hoped for and immediately was very happy. Then I picked it up and realized its not a sweatshirt type thickness at all, its actually a really, really thin t-shirt material for the body and sleeves are thin material too. I still like it a lot. Will see what hubby thinks.
Loren Bootcut Jean
I love, love, love these. They are NOT the ones in the pics 😉 The pics are the Kut from the Cloth I’d gotten from a previous shipment. These Liverpool didn’t fit well enough to even get zipped properly. BUT I might still keep them. I’ve got that “I’ll loose weight” mentality and I feel like they do spark joy. Its weird though, I cannot find this cut on the brand website to show you an example of what they look like. Hmm. So anyway, these are still to be decided.
Thoughts? What should I keep? What should I return?
