For this Fix I asked Courtney to send me some clothing that will be perfect for my cruise in February. This is the first cruise that I’ve ever been on, so (naturally) the occasion calls for an all new wardrobe. We’ll be making our way around the southern Caribbean, so I was really hoping for some fun in the sun type items. Important to note, since it’s December I’m not entirely unrealistic about what their summer apparel inventory might look like.
Side note, I’m so happy that Courtney shared this wonderful news with me! Not only because I’m very excited for her, but also because it’s really great to receive a heads up that your stylist is taking a break. Now I have time to decide if I want to continue receiving my Fixes while she is away.
French Grey Nichelle Brushed Knit Maxi Dress – $54
Sarto Gretchen Strappy Sandal – $69
I requested a maxi dress for nights out on the ship, but I almost didn’t keep this dress. Almost. I like the material. It’s stretchy and soft. I love the pattern. I think it’s super appropriate for my tropical getaway. My main issue was with the fact that it is sleeveless. Do I really like my shoulders that much? I’d already stuck it back in the returns envelope, but upon reflecting on the photos taken for this post I realized how much I liked it and I pulled it out again to keep.
I can’t believe these sandals are more expensive than the maxi dress, but it doesn’t make me love them any less. These sandals are really comfortable to wear and are the perfect color to match my new dress.
Hazel Jadie Crochet Detail Top – $54
The crochet detail on this top is really cute, but it doesn’t exactly scream “cruise-wear” to me. While I really like the color and pattern of this blouse, I think it’s a little bit dressier than what I am looking for at this time.
Just Black Fleur Frayed Hem Denim Short – $58
I really like the fit of these shorts. No coincidence that they’re made by the brand Just Black, which I happen to already love. The denim is soft and they are comfortable to wear. I really liked the frayed hem, and I can get away with buying yet another pair of denim shorts, because I don’t own any that look like these ones. Heheh..
PINK CLOVER Poppy Front Pocket Brushed Knit Top – $44
This top is so soft that I never want to take it off. I’m not even a fan of cowl necks, but I don’t even care right now. This top is super lightweight and would probably be perfect for a night on the ship, however, since it’s not high up on my list of needs for this trip I decided to save the money with hopes that I’ll be able to find something I need more in my next Fix. I hope I don’t regret it!
The verdict: 3/5
This was a great Fix for me! I checked three things off of my needs for my upcoming cruise: shorts, sandals, and a maxi dress. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite hit the right note in the tops department, but that’s okay! I have one more Fix scheduled before my cruise in February and I’m sure Courtney will hit it out of the park.
