First I have to apologize, this blog post got pulled over from my previous blogging platform and it just messed up all of the code. All of the pictures are low quality and weird sizes and there are spacing issues and issues with fonts and sizing. I tried to fix it, but even I have my limits. Sorry for any of the frustration this may cause you as a reader.

How does the FabFitFun Style Box work?
Cost: $20 per box (which is credited towards any items you buy) and free shipping + the cost of whatever items you decide to keep
In March I received an email from the FabFitFun style team offering me the chance to try their style box. They claim that it’s an “exclusive” offer, but I kind of have the feeling that anyone could enroll if they wanted to. FabFitFun has no idea that I am a blogger, and I do not believe that their decision to ask me to participate in this beta program was influenced by it.
For this box I took the initiative to email Style customer support and tell them about how much I disliked my previous box. I added that I was really interested in the destructed trend, as well as crop tops, cold shoulders, and bodysuits. I was really trying my hardest to make this next box work, so I gave her some upcoming events in my life for inspiration: a concert and a baby shower.
From the look of my style card, Kendra really took my notes to heart and put together a box with all of my suggestions in mind.
Elwood Cutout Tee – $32
This shirt is made out of a soft and stretchy material that makes it super comfortable. It has ruching along the sides which gives it some form as opposed to just laying like a normal t-shirt. The color is a speckling of black and gray and the neckline features a cutout that gives this shirt a sort of edgy appearance.
Bowery Destructed Sweatshirt – $34
This sweatshirt has everything I was asking for: cropped, distressed, unique.. But, eh.. for some reason I just really don’t like it! Maybe it’s because it was a little large, although I get the feeling this style is supposed to be worn a little big. Or maybe it’s because the pattern is camo, which isn’t something that I would normally wear. I can’t put my finger on the exact reasoning. I just know that when I put it on my body I thought, eh..
Century Legging – $52
I used to be of the opinion that you couldn’t go wrong with leggings, but somehow FabFitFun has managed to send me yet another pair of the most uncomfortable leggings that I’ve ever tried on. These leggings are a classic black with zipper pockets and a lace up heel detail. They would be really cool, if they weren’t so stiff.
Highland Dress – $40
My stylist, Kendra, sent me this dress with the possibility of wearing it to a baptism. Soak that in for a second. A BAPTISM. Let’s subtract that fact that this dress is obviously a size too big for me, and made for someone with much longer legs. The only person that should be showing this much boob is a mom, breastfeeding. I can just imagine the looks I would get, strolling into church in this little number. In all fairness, she also said that it could double as an outfit to a Taylor Swift concert, but this just doesn’t scream T-Swift to me.
Alomar Moto – $68
Although I am a lover of moto jackets, this one didn’t really resonate with me. I liked the distressed features but, like the leggings, this jacket was stiff and not very comfortable. I considered purchasing it, but I think it’s only because I was so sad to have only purchased one item per box for all three boxes.
