As you may have noticed, it has been 2 months since my last Stitch Fix. This is because we bought a second car (clunker…whatever) and I wanted to try and be a bit thrifty. I missed it ever so much and have been counting down the days until this was scheduled to arrive. Thankfully I was epically too busy at my 8-4 to focus on the fact that my box of goodies was sitting on the stairs in my foyer.
Now, of course the second I got home all bets were off and I pounced!
Item #1 – Myrstree Shelby Twist Front Lace Print Dress – $38 (the cheapest item in my Fix)
This dress was adorable! It was the first thing I tried on…and I felt like my bum was hanging out. Womp womp womp. So sad because this was the perfect style, color, and texture (soft!) but I just cannot work with something that short. If you recall my last fix had another dress by Mystree that I loved, but was too short too.
I decided to Google the brand to see if that was their thing. I actually came up with a bunch of cute tops! When I sent my feedback I told them not to send me anymore Mystree dresses because they just aren’t working length-wise.
In the return envelope it goes.
Item #2 – Pomelo Arcade Dot Print Chambray Top – $68
I don’t know where to begin!! This top brought out all of the feels (hold on, am I a teenager?)! I was completely head over heels for it. It is a heavy material so you can tell that it is going to last. There is the perfect contrast of softness with little metal buttons. But that price…oh that price for a shirt. I am SUCH a cheapo. And I did ask for a chambray shirt. Hmmmm yeah…I kept it! It was painful to tell my husband that I was keeping a shirt that cost that much. His face may have looked like this…
But he could see how much I loved it…and that I looked good in it so he was okay.
Item #3 – Papermoon Fletcher Lace Trim Blouse – $48
LOVE it! It is a perfect shell blouse for work to be work with or without a cardigan. It made me feel very confident and powerful. Like I could kick some major booty in the office or at a conference. I was a little nervous when I saw the word lace because that always feels to feminine for me. (I was a cheerleader, but I was a back base…not exactly dainty) This lace is larger and stiff. It was just enough without making me scared I would mess it up. I feel like this would look nice with anything…pencil skirt, dress pants, heck, I might even try nicer jeans! I am really looking forward to incorporating this into my wardrobe rotation!
Item #4 – 41Hawthorne Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan – $48
The color on this piece is fantastic! I have been actively trying to add more and brighter colors to my wardrobe (I, in fact, got a compliment on my $12 Old Navy neon yellow sweater with coffee spilled on it) . This piece could have helped me do that, but it was HOT! As we sit here on the cusp of summer in Atlanta I just could not see myself getting to wear this consistently until the fall. It was soft, stylish, and the definition of Anne Marie, but I just had to send it back to San Fransisco.
Item #5 – Margaret M Duboce Straight Leg Jean – $108 (the priciest in the bunch)
When I opened the box and saw these I knew they wouldn’t be staying for long…
1) WHITE – I have a 2y/o who consistently attacks me with booger and food covered kisses and dirty hands. I would be bleaching the crap out of these and that would mean I would have to go out of my way to bleach them. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
2) Stretchy – I dont’ DO many things that are stretchy. I just feel like all of my bumps and veins are showing.
3) Maternity-like waist band – I am almost 3 years out of maternity clothes…I hope to NEVER have to put them on again…I had a surgery to prevent it!
4) They didn’t fit 😦 This could be my fault. Maybe I was optimistic the day I was filling out my profile, but my day to day jeans are this size!
So, that is about that. I kept 2/5 of my Fix, which is about right for me. In my review I told them that a skirt that moves might be nice…or a bag if they are stiff doing those! I realized when I was styling my outfits that I didn’t have much in the way of baggage to model with. Maybe next time!
Please let me know if you have ANY questions about Stitch Fix! And let me know if you sign up so we can chat when you get your fix! Maybe I could feature you for a guest Fix post….hmmmm.
