Shout-out to my Mom for signing for my Front Door Fashion box while I was gallivanting in Key West. And by gallivanting, I mean huddling in a hoodie and bathrobe while trying to drink a pina colada in gale-force winds. Dean captured the moment I couldn't take it anymore and came back inside (and this would make you think I was in fashion hell, no?):
It's blurry, but you get the picture. So what a treat to come home and play dress-up. They wrap everything and label it so nicely!
You get a very detailed description of each outfit, including a shoe card where they tell you which type of shoes to wear, and other options for styling it. I LOVE this!
The biggest area where I've been left behind in the fashion world is apparently tight pants. I've noticed all the other mothers wear leggings with boots and long shirts currently. I love the color of these pants, but they're definitely too tight.
And I don't wear heels a lot, but they're kind of smoking.
Definitely keeping the top (the bottom has a string holding it together that I need to cut), and I'll size up in the pants if possible.
Okay, these look like rain boots - a trip to the shoe store is in order if I want to rock the leggings with boots look.
Holy moly, I'm in love!
You can't see the details, but these are pinstripe pants with a double-wrap belt. I'll try to upsize these too, because I don't think I could sit down in them.
And I LOVE this top - didn't put a necklace on because it didn't say to, and I was strictly following the directions. I love the pleated detail on the sides.
And these pants will work with any work shirt I like and my usual work shoes.
And next up is the perfectly fitted classic white shirt, with some more tight pants that are not as tight as the others, so they're staying.
They styled this with this awesome sweater that I love - this is my favorite outfit!
And the necklace is great, but I never know if it should go around my neck or go under the collar of the shirt - please help.
Drew said it looked fine except the pants should be longer and I should wear socks - very helpful, that one.
This is my favorite pair of men's-look shoes.
Now this one just didn't do it for me, for some reason. I thought I could handle red, but I'm just not a fan, and the blazer was very tight in the arms. Dean also nixed this one, but Lucas said it was his favorite if the top wasn't so bright. That one's also very helpful when it comes to fashion.
I will try to upsize the jeans, because I like them, aside from the tightness.
And the top is just precious - maybe in a different color.
This look also came with dressier black pants - the only ones that weren't skin-tight!
I was just playing around to see what else I could wear with them. Unfortunately, I get a Hammer-time vibe from these.
And finally, the worst of the bunch - it's the "feminine look," which I'm apparently not built for.
Definitely cuter with the cardigan, but still not for me. Nobody liked this....at all.
I tried to cuff the pants up just to see if they'd be salvageable if I hemmed them, but nope.
SO! What do you think? Katrina, I'm terribly interested to see whether you got very similar looks, like we did with Stitch Fix. And I'm due for another Fix next month, but I'm thinking of cancelling it since this one was much more successful. These things are generally more expensive, but the quality seems even higher to me. The last LONG wide-legged pants here were Level99, which is the same brand that I kept from Stitch Fix. And one top was French Connection, with my favorite pin-stripe pants being Nanette Lepore, whom I think I've heard Katrina mention before. Anyway, I'll be upsizing most of the pants, and keeping 3 of the 5 outfits, so I consider this a great success. My stylist, Megan, also seemed to get me better than Stitch Fix, though I know this was just the first try with both companies. Anybody else try these?
