Try-On Session: DailyLook Elite June 2018

dailylook elite april 2018 review (2 of 2)

Today, I have another DailyLook Elite box to share with you guys!

If you’re new to DailyLook Elite, it’s a clothing and personal styling subscription service that works similar to Stitch Fix and Trunk Club.   When you first sign up, you’ll have you take a survey that goes over your sizing, style, and pricing preferences.  Once you’ve scheduled a delivery (this can be monthly, or less frequently, it’s up to you), your stylist will then pick out ~7-9 items for your box based on those preferences.  This can include clothing, and occasionally shoes and accessories.  Before your box ships, you’ll receive an email that shows you a preview of their picks, and you can choose to remove up to 3 items as well as provide some additional feedback.

The cost of each box is $40 (this includes free shipping and free returns).  (Currently this box only ships within the US.)   If you decide to keep any of the items they send you, the $40 gets applied as a credit toward your purchase!

Want to learn more about how the whole box process works? You can get all the details over at DailyLook.com!

Now, without further ado, let’s just right into a little try-on of everything in my DailyLook Elite box for June…

Wildfox Stay In Baggy Sweater 0

Wildfox Stay In Baggy Sweater ($88) – First up – what a girl can never have enough of, in my opinion – comfy loungewear.  This pullover sweater here is amazingly soft, roomy, and warm.  I imagine it would be perfect for lounging around on the weekends, or throwing over a tank on chilly evenings.  Though I’m personally not a big fan of slogan tees/sweaters, I’ll definitely be checking out more sweaters (and sweatpants) from Wildfox!  RETURNED

Olivia Grey Floral Smocked Peasant Blouse 00

Olivia Grey L/S Floral Smocked Peasant Blouse ($88) –  I love tops with subtle floral patterns (they can really dress up a basic pair of jeans – add heels and I’m pretty much set for an evening out!).  The pattern on this one though, just didn’t catch my eye.  I did however love the little vintage touches here and there, like the tiny ruffles around the neckline and down the front, and the billowy sleeves.  RETURNED

Moon River Paper Bag Skirt 3

Moon River Paper Bag Skirt ($70) – I’m obsessed with the paper bag trend.  From jeans to skirts, they look so chic and feminine with their high waists that delicately fold at the very top, and their ties/belts that add that extra bit of flair.  This skirt fell right into that category.  The only issue I had with it was the material – it’s thick and almost wool-like, and a bit too heavy for spring/summer.  It was also a tad short on me in the back especially, so that poses the risk of flashing someone while walking around, and climbing stairs…and that’s just not something I want to have to worry about (no matter how cute a piece looks)!  RETURNED

Lumiere Tied Waist Checkered Dress 01

Lumiere Tied Waist Checkered Dress ($89) –  The dress screams 90’s to me (which isn’t at all a bad thing – I still love those grungy, early Avril Lavigne-inspired styles!).  While I can’t resist a plaid shirtdress, the waist tie on this one I wasn’t too crazy about, and the blue and black combo made it feel more appropriate for fall/winter.  RETURNED

J.O.A Ruffle Front Dress 0

J.O.A Ruffle Front Dress ($78) – I didn’t think I was going to like this dress since I don’t typically wear light blue, but this is gorgeous (despite the fact that it requires a bit of ironing)!  It has a sort of minimal, sophisticated, feminine flair that I’m loving.  I would have kept this, had it been one size down (I got a small, but it was a little too roomy for me all around, and unfortunately the tie waist didn’t help draw it in anymore).  RETURNED (for now…)

Moon River Cinched Waist Jumpsuit

Moon River Cinched Waist Jumpsuit ($88) – I’m not the biggest fan of jumpsuits, but I figured I’d give this 70’s styles one a try.  Surprisingly, I’m not hating it.  It looks cool and casual, and of course makes putting together an outfit in the morning a heck of a lot easier.  Only problem was, the top half was a little too long for me, which caused the material to gather and poof out around the stomach area.  Maybe that’s the style (the ‘slouchy, relaxed’ fit), but I just didn’t find it very flattering on me.  RETURNED

Korye Waverly Hooded Lightweight Anorak Jacket 09Korye Waverly Hooded Lightweight Anorak Jacket 000

Korye Waverly Hooded Lightweight Anorak Jacket ($98) –  This is the perfect lightweight jacket for chilly summer evenings!  It can be easily rolled up and tossed into a backpack or tote for those day trips when you just know the temperature is going to drop as soon as the sun sets!  KEPT

J Brand Mini A-Line Skirt 8

J Brand Mini A-Line Skirt ($178) – I’ve been on the hunt for a denim skirt for some time now and was super excited to try this one out, thinking it would be an instant match.  Just one problem – I got this in my usual size 27 (which I typically wear in J Brand jeans, though sometimes I’ll size up to a 28) and it fit surprisingly loose on me. (I’m pulling it back a bit in the photo above to disguise this!).  Either it’s a faulty piece, or J Brand’s skirts run one size too big.  Crossing my fingers that this style is still available next month so I can request it again!  RETURNED (for now…)

DL1961 Florence Instasculpt Distressed Cropped Jeans review

DL1961 Florence Instasculpt Distressed Cropped Jeans ($198) – Curious what ‘Instaculpt’ was exactly, I searched and found this description online: “a revolutionary, shape retaining 4-way stretch premium denim fabrication that enhances your silhouette and instantly microsculpts your legs, rear and midsection“.  I have to say, these jeans are amazing!  They feel so well-constructed and ‘supportive’, and they have just the right amount of stretch to make them super comfy and flexible.  Other features:  they’re made out of pure, ethically-sourced cotton, eco-friendly (and anti-bacterial) modal/tencel, and a hybrid elastane that creates the “ultimate contouring effect with maximum recovery“.  I also love the light wash and slight distressing around the knee and hem – perfect for spring/summer weekend-wear!  I typically wear a size 27 or 28 in jeans  – got these in a size 28 and they fit perfectly.  KEPT

Wrap-Up

Overall, I liked pretty much every piece in my box this month, with the exception of the blue & black plaid dress.  I had so much trouble narrowing it down to just a few items (I do try to keep a budget when it comes to clothes!), but ultimately decided to go with the anorak jacket (I can imagine getting tons of use out of this in and around San Fran as it always gets chilly right around 6pm!), and the DL1961 cropped jeans (love the fit, plus they’re a light wash – just what my closet needed for spring/summer!).
