Happy New Year!!! 2020!!
This week I’ll be getting back to a couple work clothes and a couple weekend clothes. I sent 2 pieces back on Monday and got the go ahead to pick two more Tuesday morning. Since tomorrow is New Years day I won’t be receiving this shipment till Thursday. Once I get that I’ll mail back the 2 things I kept and pick 2 more.
As much as I want to hate this and the price of it, I am having such a blast trying things that I would never normally try. I mean, I would never even try on a sweater that has a price tag over $60.00 just because I have to shop for everyone in my family so I try to get good deals on everything. Spending so much on one piece of clothing seems crazy to me but spending $130.00 a month and getting to try all these things (while still expensive in my mind) is really fun right now.
Anyway, let’s get to it!
First I picked this:
This Carbon Knit Cardigan by KaufmanFranco retails for $1195.00… I don’t think I have Ever worn anything that expensive before. It’s got 4 out of 5 for reviews and I am hoping to love it. Also, it has pockets and that matters a lot to me for some reason. I can buy it for $358.50.
I love this sweater. It’s super comfortable. I feel awesome in it. I plan on wearing it all weekend. I’m not buying it, but I will wear it until it’s time to send back Monday for the next shipment.
I actually did wear this all weekend on my errands and I am wearing it again to work on Monday. Is that gross? I don’t know but I really love it. I will be a little sad to send this back.
I picked these jeans because they look long and have alright reviews. A lot of the jeans seem to be ankle length and I feel like it’s too short a lot of the time. I am hoping these are not too long. I’m 5’6 and a lot of the positive reviews are from people 5’7 and taller. These are by Midheaven Denim and retail for $288.00. We’ll see. I can buy it for $259.20.
These are long and really high waist. I didn’t mind the length too much, I thought it was alright. What I minded was the buttons up to above my belly button. There wasn’t much give in these jeans either and I didn’t think it was worth being uncomfortable at all when I can just send them back and pick a new pair. So back they go with the two sweaters from last week.
Next I picked:
I liked this sweater, it has good reviews so I figured why not. It says it retails for $395.00. I can buy it for $158.00.
I really like this Sweater. I love the fit and the weight. I have already received multiple compliments on it at work and it’s still morning. I will not buy it but I might wear it one more time before sending it back.
I picked this sweater for the fun design and pop of color. Rent the Runway says it retails for $395.00. I can buy it for $158.00.
Wore this to work with black jeans and brown heel booties. It’s super cute, not tight and a good warmth. I am wearing a white tank underneath and the arms are a little scratchy. Not anything super annoying. I have received one compliment on it already. I like the way it hangs. I like the color. I like the way it looks. I feel really good today. I would consider buying this if there wasn’t a little hole in the sleeve. Ehh, I can always rent again. Back it will go.
And because I am always on the hunt for jeans I picked these. Good old Levi’s. Pretty good reviews on this and it retails for $98.00. I am hoping I love them and these I might actually be able to afford at the RTR discount. We’ll see. I can buy these for $78.40.
I wore these out to dinner with my daughter and I really like them. I’m not going to buy them, but I will keep them till the next shipment and wear them. The only thing I think that’s really weird about them is the 6 or 7 buttons on the fly. I know they are high waist but it seems like an excessive amount of buttons. Maybe that’s just me and I really only need to unbutton like 3 or 4 to go to the bathroom so it’s not a huge deal.
I like the color, the fit is growing on me. The legs are a little tight for me but I think these might give a little as I wear them. I am going to keep wearing them for the weekend.
I really love this service. I feel more confident in my appearance and I am loving trying on new things. I have told about 10 people at work about it. Even some people I never spoke to before who just told me how much they liked something I was wearing. I really want to not like the service because of the monthly fee but I am having a lot of fun picking new things. Seriously, I get so excited when I see the email that they received my return and it’s time to pick something new. I wish I could add more slots so I can have more than 4 things at a time, but I won’t because it’s an extra $39.00 each. In another month my monthly fee with increase to $150.00.
I will keep the service for a while. So stay tuned for more reviews… Also, if you are interested in trying out this service, please consider using my referral code:

Love this selection, the jumpers are gorgeous. The cardigan and pink one in particular.
It must be hard to not want to keep them all x
I live the pink one! If it was so expensive to keep, I would! I’m going to wear one more time before sending back!
