Shopping: MM LaFleur Part Deux

I sent my first Bento box back and MM LaFleur sent me another selection of five items. THESE ARE THEIR STORIES.

Part of MM LaFleur's excellent customer service is the e-mail you receive reminding you it's Day X of your four day try-on. My package was waylaid in our housing complex office and when I replied that I had not received it yet, they gave me an extra day.

Second box contents. These are items selected by a stylist after a questionnaire and informed by the rejects from my first box (nothing tight, nothing short).

I know a more fair assessment would be trying on these clothes NOT after a long day of work and fun night of food and cocktails with friends and having Luke take cell phone pics in the gloom of our living room from a terrible angle but sorry, these are the conditions.

Top and pants.

I could not bend my arms in this shirt (size large).

I would have kept this dress but 1) I have similar items and 2) the pockets make the fabric flare at the hips. Not going for hip-flare.

My "wow this is unflattering face". The facing of this ecru dress showed through more than this photo lets on. To give this a fighting chance I'd ditch the self belt and try with basically any other belt. This looks like the world's laziest tourniquet.

Sooooo I won't order a Bento again. But I'm not giving up on MM LaFleur - I believe in their ethos and mission and am impressed by their customer service. I'm intrigued by these skinny pants with an adjustable hem and midi skirt (love this color).
