So I had a $25 credit in my Stitch Fix account and figured I might as well get a fix coming my way! Plus, it had been a while since I had gotten a fix and I am still waiting on my Wantable Style Edit to arrive (last one was in May).
Here is what I asked for in my profile:
No accessories. Want timeless, classic, simple pieces in plain colors- not too many patterns. Think J.Crew, Loft, Banana Republic. No dolman sleeves, boxy tunics or sheer tops. New momma, want casual clothes (semi-form fitting) I can wear with regular bra. Please see Pinterest board for specific pieces I want.
And here is what I got…apologies for the photos. Took these quickly during naptime, hence the bare feet, crazy hair and general lack of makeup. But hey, that’s real life!
First up in the August 2015 Stitch Fix Review: the Market & Spruce Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee
Plain and simple- just what I asked for. But it is kind of sheer (I have a tank underneath), and if I am going to pay near $50 for a shirt, I better be able to wear just the shirt and not have to worry about a cami underneath.
Next up: 41 Hawthorn Breyson Pleated Tab-Sleeve Blouse
This was my favorite piece in my fix. But, I did receive the exact same shirt in a previous fix (although it was teal and a different material.) Kind of frustrating. The color is described as coral, but it is more of an orange color. I felt that the material on this version laid nicer than the knit version, which was clingy. And I love that you can wear the sleeves long or 3/4 length. (Apologies for the dark bra there- whoops!)
Third item: Market & Spruce Alan French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan
Perfect- a neutral, comfortable cardigan! I liked how it laid when it was open, but when zipped, it fit me weird. The draped neckline was nice, but there is the fabric underneath that I don’t know what to do with! Perhaps if I got one size larger it would work? Besides, I got this asymmetrical zip jacket from UnderArmour as part of my June budget…
Got the Gilli Darby Maxi Dress
My stylist saw this Gilli maxi dress on my Pinterest board and apparently it wasn’t available, so she sent something similar. It’s similar, but I really wanted a maxi dress with black in it, and one that had short sleeves. Oh well!
Rounding out my fix was the Papermoon Kasidy Swing Skirt
I didn’t care for the swing skirt style- it doesn’t flatter my figure. I looks best tucked in, but I wasn’t a fan of the print either and don’t think it’d be very remixable. That was a definite no.
So, even though I feel like my stylist mostly stuck to my notes, I ended up sending everything back. Just wasn’t overly attached to any of the pieces. Would you have kept anything?
