I'm trying not to use the name of it on here because I'm hoping to avoid lots of random fashion stranger blog traffic from now on.
But let's just say it rhymes with Itch Nix.
Got it? ;)
Ok, so just like last time, I waited 2 months between boxes and was super pumped and ready when it arrived. This time, I requested as many dresses as possible and a jacket with an asymmetrical zipper. Check and check, both requests granted!
Here's what I got...
Let's get right into it...
Fuchsia Wrap Dress - $68
First let me just say... I had to look up how to spell the word fuchsia. That word is hard! Seriously! Ok, now we can talk about the dress...
The color I love. And the pleatedness of the skirt is nice too! Plus, it has pockets! But that's about it with this one. The collar is awkward and flappy in my opinion. And let's get to the real issue... my girls look like sag-o-sauruses. Pretty sure it's the pockets and the pleating under the boobs making them look extra sad and saggy. I'm even wearing my best, perkiest bra in the picture! I did my part, ya know? Oh well, at least that made the decision easy!

Turquoise Flare Dress - $128
So, I like this one! The color is pretty and the fit is like a glove. I know it looks a bit boring, but I didn't dress it up much. Think of all the possibilities... combine with some flashy jewelry and a nice jacket and BAM, I'll be looking like a million bucks! My two hesitations are... 1.) It actually kinda costs a million bucks, and by that I mean over a hundred dollars. BUT, in its defense, it's made of a very nice, thick material and it's super lined. Probably worth the moolah. 2.) Does it looks like a politician's dress? I felt a little like I should have been running a campaign and standing on a podium talking about hope and dreams and U-S-A!
I'm definitely undecided on this one. If it were a bit cheaper, I'd definitely keep. What do you think?

Striped Maxi Dress - $78
I LOVE the way this one feels. It's stretchy and flowy and just plain comfy. Definitely loved putting it on. BUT, looking at pictures now, I'm thinking "meh." It's nothing special. Plus, I'm not exactly sure what to do about the lacy part on the top. Can I wear a nude bra and just let the straps show a little, like I did in the pics above? Can you even tell? Or to keep it classy, do I need to wear a strapless? I tried it on with a strapless, but let's just say strapless makes the girls look HUGE. And with the stripes of the dress, EVEN HUGER. I'm definitely still considering it, as the husband really loves it and, like I said before, I love the way it feels on. But, just like the last dress, it's a little more than I'd like to spend. Decisions, decisions.
White Crochet Shirt - $54
I've already shared pics of all these items on my facebook page and this shirt seems to be getting the most attention. The crowd likes it!! And that's making me think I need to keep it! The husband really likes it too. The embroidery is definitely fun and I like how I can play around with the color by wearing different colored undershirts. John seems to think I can wear it without an undershirt, but it's definitely a little see-through and I'm definitely not cool with that, thank you very much. I am cool with filling the white-shirt hole in my wardrobe. So, I'm pretty sure this one's a keeper. I could still be persuaded though...

Striped Asymmetrical Jacket - $78
Ask and you shall receive. I've had my eye on everyone's asymmetrical zipper jackets for quite some time now. I think they're fun and fashionable, so I've been meaning to add one to my wardrobe. I know, I know... wrong season for a terry jacket like this, especially in Memphis, but this girl doesn't care. I'll definitely get use out of it come October. (Yes, it takes 'til October to get cool around here. Not complaining.) Anyway, when I ordered this box two months ago, I asked for one and the stylist obliged! Thank you! I think it makes me look a liiiittle wide from the side, but I'm pretty sure that's just 'cause it's short. Otherwise, it's love. This one is for sure a keeper!
The end! (Of box #4. You know I just have to get another one!)
So, what are your thoughts? I'd love to know! What would you keep? What would you send back faster than it arrived? Gimme your fashion advice, puh-leeease!
Keep in mind, I have $50 in referral credits, so I'll save $50 overall on my purchase. I would also save 25% off if I kept all items, but I've yet to get a box where I want all five. A little lame, but I can deal.
I'll write an update at the end of this post by tomorrow night to let you know what I chose.
Thanks in advance, friends!
And lucky for you, my mom signed up for this fashion thing and her box is being delivered sometime today! She already told me I could post her pics on here, so get excited for that. Woop woop!
PS - If you're interested in getting your very own fashion box (complete with personal stylist), consider using my referral link. It gets me $25 off my next box as soon as yours ships. No pressure though! Just like to throw it out there. :)
I decided to keep (drumroll please)...
The jacket only! Here's why:
My go-to decision making method is to wait 'til the next day to try everything on again, then rejudge. When I tried on the blue dress again, I noticed it had extra material over my chest in a really awkward spot, so that made my decision easier. You can actually see it in the pics above. I don't know how I missed it the first time around. When I tried on the maxi again, it didn't feel as exciting or wonderful, plus I remembered that I'd just bought at $29 maxi at Target, so I felt like the most frugal decision was to return it. And finally, when I tried on the white top again, it just felt too baggy around my stomach, which made me sad because I want to wear tops that are baggy around my stomach, but only if there's a babe in there. So, back it goes!! The jacket is my only keeper!
And overall, it was only $28 (because of referral credz!), making it my cheapest box yet and making me want another one sooner than two months from now. Therefore, my next one arrives on August 1st! I asked for lots of patterns: polka dots, stripes, critters, florals!! Bring it on, Itch Nix! Let's see what you got!
