Yay! Stitch Fix time! I was super excited to get my 3rd fix this past week. I scheduled it a week before my birthday so it would be like an early birthday gift to myself if I decided to keep one (or two or three) pieces from it.
Unfortunately, that extra funds allocation won’t be necessary this time. :’( They aren’t bad pieces per se, just nothing that excites me or that I need/want. Possibly partly my fault. I haven’t been very vocal beforehand about what I want/don’t want. Partially because I don’t want to miss out on a great piece because I said I don’t want *insert random clothing piece* in my box and partially because I don’t want to be a PITA. Live and learn I suppose!
41Hawthorn Bindy Fit and Flare Ponte Dress, $78
Thoughts: Not loving the thicker material and long sleeves seeing as it’s 80 degrees outside right now. It fits nicely though. Better than I expected actually and the color is beautiful. But, I don’t wear a ton of dresses and it’s pretty hot and humid here 8 months out of the year, I would be sweating like crazy in this!
Ultimately: Sent back. I’m looking forward to summer and wearing flowy, lightweight dresses/skirts.
41Hawthorn Toshi Contrast Detail Longsleeve Blazer, $88
Thoughts: I wasn’t too excited about this one since I already have a black blazer in my closet and the fact that I don’t wear blazers that often in the summer. Surprisingly it fit pretty nicely and the polka dots on the lining are adorable!
Ultimately: Sent back. I might have been tempted to replace my current blazer with this one, but the inside lining seemed to stick to my clothing a little and get discombobulated so I had to pass.
Kensie Jeans Sophia Distressed Skinny Jean, $88
Thoughts: I would have died for these not too long ago, but I just bought a pair of deconstructed denim a few months back. I tried them on anyways and while they weren’t bad, the fit was a little tight and they were too long.
Ultimately: Sent back. I like the Old Navy rockstars I just bought better.
Kut From The Kloth Marquis Slub Knit Dolman Sweater, $48
Thoughts: It’s not amazing, but I like that it’s lightweight and loose fitting. I could see myself wearing it over my bathing suit maybe with a pair of shorts. But it’s still a sweater..in Florida..in April.
Ultimately: Kept. The top 3 items were definite no’s and seeing that I didn’t want to forfeit my $20 box fee, it was between the sweater or the necklace below for the piece I kept.
Bay to Baubles Toby Gem Stone Statement Necklace, $36
Thoughts: The gold is kinda brassy, but the colors are pretty and it’s different from anything I have in my jewelry box.
Ultimately: Sent back. I don’t see myself wearing it. Plus, I let my husband choose which one I should keep between the necklace and the sweater above…he chose the sweater. ;)
So, there you have it. Now you understand what I meant when I said they weren’t bad pieces, just not for me. I’m not hatin’. I still love Stitch Fix. I just think I need to tweak my profile for next time. I’ll probably request no more jeans and maybe no more workwear/business pieces.
