You might remember late this summer I received an opportunity to try a new subscription service called Fashom. If you aren’t familiar with Fashom, check out this post and find out more. Today I’m going to share my second Fashom box with you.
I had some credit remaining and wanted to wait until fall to try another box, so I ordered one and received it late last week.
The first two items were these high rise skinny jeans with hem bite and floral embroidered tulip hem sleeve top.
I was excited to try the jeans (in spite of them being high rise). I like the look of the hem bite distressing. When I first put them on, I was hopeful they’d work, but after wearing them for a few minutes, much as I expected, the hight rise made them uncomfortable for me. High rise jeans don’t work well on my short waisted frame.
The embroidered top has a lot of cute details like the embroidery (duh), the tulip hem sleeves and the wide neck. The material is a thick gauzy feeling and would be perfect for season transitioning.
This short drapey jacket has a cute cut, but I didn’t really like the fabric. It was really thin for a “jacket” and more suited to a shirt.
I received a faux suede bell sleeve jacket in this box as well. This jacket did have more of a jacket feel and there were things about it I liked…but the sleeves made me feel a little “Jack Sparrow”.
This is the last item that was in my box. A v-neck fleecy sweater. Y’all, this one was super soft and felt like one of the Gibson pieces we all know and love. Sorry about the picture, I forgot to take a still shot and had to screenshot a video. Had this top been a different color, I’d have been tempted to keep it. I’m not a fan of blue on blue, so I knew I wouldn’t wear it.
So I ended up returning all the items in my second Fashom box. Here’s the thing. Did I dislike them all? No, but I have learned to really evaluate items before adding them to my closet and if I just don’t fell like I will wear it a lot, I don’t keep it. #maybeivegrownup
I think I’ll give it a few more weeks and then take another crack at it, so stay tuned and we’ll see what happens next time.
