Can you believe it’s Stitch Fix time again already?!
So you know the drill…I try on the five items I received and break it down for you (what I liked, what I didn’t like), and whether or not I kept the item. And then half of you yell at me for returning something that you think looked good. It’s ok, I’m cool with that.
After last month’s fix I left a note for my stylist asking her to (1) omit any stripes (2) include some color and (3) include something I can dress up for the Holidays. I also left pretty detailed feedback on why I kept items vs. returning them…and I think that’s really helped in making my fixes better and better each month. So don’t ask me why I look so angry in all of these pictures….because so far this has been my best fix yet!
So let’s get started!
Layle Shirred Shoulder Button-Up Blouse — $58.00
First of all, I love pink. Kinda like I love coconuts. This shirt is a great color, perfect for skinny jeans or boyfriend jeans, and has some fun detailing on the sleeves (shirred shoulders and pinned sleeves). I think it will be a great top for work but can also be dressed down to be a bit more casual. This was a no-brainer.
Leo Contrast Trim Blouse — $68.00
There is absolutely nothing nice I can say about this shirt. I knew the minute I pulled it out of the box that I would hate it. And I do. I mean look at my face….I can’t wait to take it off. It’s just not my style at all….the colored trim, the pirate sleeves. No. Just no. The only reason I tried this on was to prove how ugly it was to you, dear readers.
Milan Lace Print Back Pleat Top — $58.00
You knew it was coming. The one I’m indecisive about. And I know if I returned it, this would be the item that everyone said I was crazy for returning. I think the problem is that I just can’t quite get comfortable in it. When I pulled it out of the box I thought it was most likely a No. But then I tried it on and I thought….well….maybe? It’s kind of cute. It’s definitely different than anything I own which is actually kind of refreshing. But would I really wear it? I actually think this shirt is perfect for my sister. But for me? I don’t know.
VERDICT: KEPT. Live a little, Janna. If you hate it your sister will take it.
Selfridge Cowl Neck Long Sleeve Top — $48.00
I looooooooove this shirt! The only color I love as much as black and pink is grey. I love the style, I love the fit. And obviously anything that helps hide my flaws *cough, belly* I will buy 2 of and wear every other day. So this shirt is a keeper. I love the look with jeans and boots but also think I’ll wear it with skirts (like a pencil skirt to work). I was too lazy to add a fun statement necklace or earrings but I think that will work well too.
VERDICT: KEPT. Obvi.
Rocco 3/4 Sleeve Faux Wrap Dress — $88.00
And then there was this little number. Another item that if I dare return everyone would yell at my face. Don’t get me wrong…I think this dress is pretty dang flattering. And it actually has a heavy liner so it lays nicely, is a bit warmer, and kind of “evens things out” ifyouknowwhatimean. So here’s my “but.” While it’s flattering in pictures, I’m not sure how flattering it would be all the time. I feel like I would constantly be trying to stand up tall to keep everything in check and I have never ever liked anything that ties at my waist. It’s a bit more fitting than I usually go for and maybe I just need to get over it. On the other hand, it is super comfortable, I love the liner, I love the look of it with boots (and my scarf from the last fix!), and it would be dressed up for the Holidays with a fun chunky necklace. So again….totally on the fence here. I’m sure the suspense is killing you…..
VERDICT: KEPT. I just need to get over it! Wear something fitted while I still can, eh?
Overall I thought this fix was fantastic. My stylist listened to my feedback, gave me some color (successfully!), and threw in a few things I wouldn’t have necessarily picked out on my own. And even though one of those items was hideous, I’ll forgive her.
So why, after such a successful fix am I going to change my Fix Frequency? Because dude. My stylists are just too good! I’m spending way too much money on clothes and momma wants a new house. So for now, I’m changing my shipments to every other month.
Are you ready to try Stitch Fix yet? I think you should!
Until next time….
Yes I cut my hair, and yes those are the booties that I swore I’d never wear,
