One of the downsides of unboxing fashion on YouTube is that I don't always get to show what I actually keep. Usually, I don't make any final decisions until after the video goes live. Sometimes I like to try things on again or style the item with other things in my closet. And sometimes I look at my bank account and decide not to splurge! So I use my blog to report back on my final choices. You'll be able to check here for updates on what I kept and what I sent back. Today I've got my November Trendsend box to share with you. The video is right below and then my selections are below that. Enjoy!


• ALLISON JOY Francesca Button Front Halter Top $49.99 I adored the pattern on this halter top. I really wish it could have been on another style top...something bra friendly and that didn't have a million fabric buttons that were impossible to do up. This top wins the award for "Most Irritating Clasps," hands down. Beyond that, I didn't think this was the most flattering top and can see why it's been marked down.

SENT BACK.

p.s. - Think this top is for you? You can check it out here. For my money, I prefer this Allison Joy Wynn Snap Front Tank. It's bra friendly, but still has a trendy, dark floral pattern.


• BB DAKOTA Evermoore Dress $79 This is a pretty body-con dress...you've been warned! I prefer to not have my clothes cling to me in this manner, so it's not my cup of tea. That being said, I loved the neutral color and think this would be lovely layered under something like a vest.

SENT BACK.

p.s. - If body-con dresses are your jam, you can check this one out here. If you're looking for something a little less form-fitting, I'd try this one.


• LA MADE Cowl Racer Tank $49.99 This is simply bad design. There is no structure built into the neckline, causing it to flop around constantly. So irritating! If not for suck a glaring flaw, this might

have been an okay tank.

SENT BACK.

p.s. - I suggest you skip this tank and try this one from Express instead.


• LINE AND DOT Cardi Coat $108 This is actually a very nice substitute for a jacket on days that don't require a heavy coat. The material is substantial and cozy. Layered over a business casual outift, you're going to be ready to face a crisp, fall day. I was paused by the price. Although I'm sure this cardi coat is worth every penny, my gut was telling me I could probably find something similar at a better price (however, see my post script...)

SENT BACK.

p.s. - If you're in the market for something like this, you should definitely check the Line And Dot version out. I did some searching and turns out, most cardi coats are in the $100 range. So this is a really great option.


• MICHAEL STARS Gigi Mesh Pullover $89.99 This mesh pullover was giving me all the 80s vibes! I really did love the retro look of this top, but I really didn't love the price.

SENT BACK.

p.s. - This top has had a price drop since I received it. It may be worth checking out.


• MICHAEL STARS Boatneck Tank $68 The ribbing on this tank makes it SUPER soft. Of course, most things Michael Stars are super soft, so I wasn't surprised. It also has a nice fit IF you're not as busty as I am. This tank is great for layering under sweaters or blazers.

SENT BACK.

p.s. - Here's the Michael Stars top, if you're interested. BUT. Before you decide on it, check out this AMAZING $12 body suit from Target that gives similar vibes, has a better fit on most body types, and is so much less expensive!


• PEYTON JENSEN Leigha Smocked Skirt $49.99 I'm not really into skirts, so when I find one I like, there's something very special about it. This one has the most comfortable waistband and comes in such a great pattern. The length makes it perfect to wear with tall boots for fall or sandals when spring rolls back around. If you're between sizes, size down.

KEPT.

p.s. - Check out this beautiful skirt here.


• SPANX Leather Like Jogger $148 Wow, these babies are cozy! Way too cozy for Southern Arizona. I'm pretty sure I'd have a heat stroke in these. LOL! Even still, these have been the best fitting leather bottoms I've tried on this year. Factoring out the heat they produce, I'm still not convinced these are best ones out there.

SENT BACK.

p.s. - Check out this beautiful skirt here.


• SUNDRY Siene Tie Dye Midi Skirt $59.99 Another body-con piece that didn't make me feel comfortable. It looks great on the women modeling it, but on me? Not so much. It accentuated my curves in the worst way, making my hips look exaggerated. The fabric though, was buttery soft, and the length was perfect for showing off your shoes.

SENT BACK.

p.s. - See it on the models here.


• Z SUPPLY Emery Jogger $39.99 These joggers are the epitome of laid back and relaxed. The French Terry is soft and cozy, making these the perfect pant for hanging at home. I did find that there was an overly relaxed design to them, particularly through the hips. Though I would never wear these beyond my driveway, I spent a lot of time considering these...

SENT BACK.

p.s. - Are you considering them, too? Check them out here. I'm actually considering these from Old Navy.


I was disappointed that there wasn't more in this box to love! I started off with such high hopes, plus there were so many pieces. But, alas... What did you think of this box? Is there anything in this collection that you're interested in?

The video is right below and then my selections are below that. Enjoy!

• PAPERMOON Conway Faux Wrap Blouse, $38 This tank was a good piece. I was afraid of this muted purple but paired with the right sweater or jacket, it pops. I'm wary of tie-front tops, but again, this tank surprised me. Because the tie was off to the side, it worked. For me, because I carry weight low, if a tie is right in the middle (as they often are), they add bulk where I don't want it. This tank did the opposite. But I had a feeling this would be a piece I wouldn't reach for often enough. So...

SENT BACK.

p.s. - This tank is available to buy via Stitch Fix in several colorways, but, surprisingly, purple is my favorite. If you're new to Stitch Fix, you can get up to $9 cash back on your purchase by using Rakuten. Not a Rakuten member? Sign up here for a $30 bonus!


• STITCHES & STRIPES Keagan Ribbed Duster Cardigan, $78 Another great surprise piece! I wondered if the collar of this sweater would lay funny, but it stayed flat. I loved the golden color of this duster and thought it would make a fantastic outer layer. But after a quick search online, I found tons of similar cardigans priced much better. Since this piece wasn't anything particularly special...

SENT BACK.

p.s. - Here's the Stitch Fix version of this cardigan. For a more textured version, try this best seller from Koh'ls. Don't forget to use Rakuten for 10% cash back!


• BOBEAU Bessie Popcorn Skull Pullover, $68 My stylist made a valid, but incorrect, assumption that because I have an edgy style, I'm into skulls. I'm not. My love affair with all things rock & roll stops short of skulls, bones, and skeletons. What can I say? I'm not THAT hardcore. LOL! Beyond the knit skull across the front of this boucle knit sweater, I found the sleeve length to be short. I would have preferred this sweater in an XL (I got a large) so that it would be oversized and the sleeves would be longer. The material was super soft and this would be a cute piece for someone more committed to their edginess.

SENT BACK.

p.s. - I might try this Bobeau Popcorn Ribbed Sweater instead. It has the same material without the "edgy" detail 😂


• LETY & ME Mary Long Sleeve Pullover, $46 Another top that would be cute on someone else. I favorited this piece in my Freestyle Shop on the Stitch Fix app. I'm glad they sent it to me so that I could try it out before purchasing it. I loved the geometric, polka dot print, but it ended up not working out for me. Something about it didn't light me up. There were no sparks. So...

SENT BACK.


• MAVI Kathleen High Rise Boyfriend Jean, $88 They should call these relaxed skinnies. There was anything very boyfriend about the fit. But that's beside the point. They were comfortable and if this was spring instead of fall, I would have purchased them. But, right now, I'm looking for full-length jeans in a more relaxed fit.

SENT BACK.


This was a good box from Stitch Fix. I have tempered my expectations when it comes to this style box. I used to count on them for special pieces that I would love for years. Now they are best for basics - particularly if your budget is under $100. I have seen more fashionable pieces on the app, but they are well over the $100 mark. So, when I'm ready to splurge a bit, I'll definitely request a box with a higher pricing point. But for now, there's nothing I need from Stitch Fix, so it's going all back. Do you think I made the right decision?
