Since these posts always seem to do really well here, I wanted to share with you my newest Stitch Fix (<– referral link) shipment! I was really excited by how fun the different pieces looked when I pulled them out of the box. Most of the items weren’t anything I would have picked out for myself, but I was intrigued by what my stylist had sent for me, so I couldn’t wait to try everything on and see how she did!
This week I am linking up to Sara at Lake Shore Runner and Becky at Olives N Wine for their weekly linkups. Make sure to stop by to check out what other bloggers are linking up today and if you have a blog, consider linking up too!
My fix this month included:
Papermoon Kelly Dress: $64
Skies Are Blue Sami Cut-Out Detail Blouse: $48
Bancroft Leighton Metal Bauble Necklace: $34
41Hawthorn Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse: $58
41Hawthorn Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer: $78
First up was the Skies Are Blue Sami Cut-Out Detail Blouse, which was the piece I was most excited about when I opened the box. I loved the fun color, pattern and cut-out detail for summer, but it was meh when I put it on. It didn’t really “WOW” me, so I decided to send it back. Returned.
Since clothes modeling really isn’t my thing, taking these photos can get a little awkward. You’ve been warned!
Next up was the 41Hawthorn Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse which was probably the one I was least excited about when I opened the box. The bottom hem of the shirt and the “poof” of the sleeves at the elbow looked a little odd when I pulled the shirt out, so my initial thought was that I was going to return it. Once I tried it on, I actually REALLY liked it! Keep.
I’ve been asking for statement necklaces in my fix each month, so I really wanted to like the Bancroft Leighton Metal Bauble Necklace, but it just kept falling all wrong for me and I kept having to readjust it every time I moved. It became too high-maintenance and the price tag was a little too high, so I decided against this one too. Returned.
The Papermoon Kelly Dress threw me for a bit of a loop when I opened my fix since the style and pattern couldn’t be further from something I would pick out for myself. I tried it on and was actually really surprised by how comfortable it was. I liked the length and the style of the top part of the dress since it could easily be worn to work without being offensive but also transition into something a little dressier.
There was something about the bottom part of the dress though that wasn’t flattering at all though. Horizontal stripes in any form on my bottom half are usually a no go for me and this was no exception. Between the out of character pattern, unflattering bottom of the dress and the pattern not being straight on the bottom part of the dress, it was not a keeper. Returned.
However, I will say that I was tempted to keep the dress just to be able to wear it with the 41Hawthorn Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer that also came in my fix. Even though this blazer was cute, comfy and I have been asking for a blazer in my fix since I first started using Stitch Fix, I still decided not to keep it after much debate. I decided that I couldn’t keep it, unless I found tops I already had in my closet that I could wear it with. After trying on multiple tops with the blazer, and not being happy with any of the outcomes, I decided not to keep the blazer. Returned.
Overall, I’ve really been enjoying getting these packages in the mail each month and talking with my co-worker who also uses Stitch Fix (<– referral link) about what we liked and didn’t like from each box. We both actually upped the frequency of our boxes to get more casual spring/summer work clothes!
