My most recent Fix (my seventh!) has definitely been the best, yet. They just keep getting better! I was reading back through my previous reviews, and it’s apparent my taste has changed in the last couple years! I was going through a phase. It involved buying white floral shorts. I don’t know. I’m over it.
I left a note with my stylist, explaining my closet’s color scheme (blacks, grays, darker shades, and cool jewel tones), and also pointed her in the direction of my Pinterest style board. I told her that I needed a few pieces that would be office and Graduate presentation appropriate, but also dress-downable. She used these details and images to create a perfect Fix for me! I ended up with two pieces that I know I’m going to be happy with for a long time.
A couple things before I continue:
- When will winter end? I am dry, soft, and blotchy.
- Growing out a pixie cut is kind of terrible. Somebody please end my misery.
In this box:
- Jessie basket weave detail jersey maxi dress by Gilli $74 (made in the US) kept
- Gazele mosaic print blouse by Amour Vert $78 (made in the US)
- Kayella lace sweater by Mystree $68 kept
- Gilligan cocoon style cardi by RD Style $58
- Uruguay pintuck detail top by Skies are Blue $48
The dress is an investment piece, for sure, but will be perfect in the summer and for our vacation. The lace sweater, which I fell instantly, heads-over-heels in love with, replaces a less-loved black sweater that was much too small and boxy.

I did like both the blouses, especially the mosaic print, but I already have two similar graphic print tops in my closet as it is (one LL Bean Signature and one Tart, from a previous fix). Both shirts provided no stretch, so a size small was slightly out of my normal comfort level. The oatmeal-colored cocoon cardigan (not pictured) was a non-option. It was cozy and warm, but light colors are asking for trouble. I’m a mess maker.

I spoiled myself with this Fix. This girl is officially on a shopping break, especially with next semester’s tuition on the horizon. I’m at a pretty amazing place right now, though, where I am, after purging and replacing, a stable 90% happy with my wardrobe.
