For my previous Stitch Fix Reviews, check out these posts:
I just got my 4th Stitch Fix box yesterday! This time I was a little more specific with what I was looking for and I did some major editing of my Pinterest Board to make sure that it really reflected my tastes a little more. I recently bought a pair of White Jeans so I asked for some tops that would look good with those. I also asked for a Maxi Dress and I mentioned that I have a couple of events coming up (2 weddings plus the associated events–bridal shower, etc.) and that I could use some fun things to wear to those. I mentioned that I wanted to branch out a little more into brighter colors/patterns as well.
There were some fun colors, patterns and textures, though I would really love for them to stop sending me so much black & white. Yes, I wear a lot of black and white but my goal is to get away from that and add more color into my wardrobe, so these fun colors were great!
I really felt like the stylist paid attention to my pinterest board and my requests this time since I got 3 fairly versatile dresses and two tops that both work well with white jeans or for work. Thank you, stylist! 🙂
I wish we could go outside and take artsy photos like I’ve seen on some fashion blogs, but let’s be honest… I’m a working mother with a busy and active toddler, my husband is busy and frequently on call. Our house doesn’t look perfect like those of some of the bloggers and we don’t have a perfectly picturesque back yard in which to take well-posed, well-lit fashion photography. This is real life!
Anyway… I tried everything on to see how it all fit and to start making some decisions!
This dress fit well, was the perfect length, and the fabric is nice and soft. The waist is elastic and kind of bunched up a little weird and I’m not really a big fan of the horizontal stripes. I also don’t like the way that the stripes don’t match up on the two pieces of fabric above and below the elastic. While $68 would be a reasonable price to pay for a dress like this if it were something I thought I would get a lot of wear out of, I really see it as being more of a summer-time dress: I imagine wearing it to the beach in Aruba, out to dinner a few times in the summer, maybe to some music festivals, etc. I was recently at Target and saw a Maxi Dress available for $20 so I think this particular dress will be returned and instead I’ll go find a cheaper version at Target or Old Navy.
I tried this blouse on with my white jeans but I could also see wearing it with black pants, a jean skirt or another colored pencil skirt. The material is a little scratchy but I like the embroidered detail, the tab sleeves and the v-neck. The shirt fits really well, is the right length and I really like the deep blue color. I haven’t yet decided about this shirt… but I could see this becoming a reliable work shirt!
This shirt is a very nice soft material. I posted this photo on Facebook and got a bunch of compliments from people who said it’s very figure-flattering with the gathered waist. I like the say it looks with white jeans and I also tried it on this morning with black pants. I think it’s fairly versatile in that it can be dressed up or down depending on what else I wear with it. Ken liked this shirt better than the other shirt… and I haven’t decided quite yet… but feel that I should keep one or the other (or maybe both if I can justify it!)
Next up there was a dress, the Wesley Printed Flutter Sleeve Dress, which is $98!
I was not a fan of this dress… it’s too short, not very flattering, and there was a kind of strange button at the v-neck designed to keep it closed but the button kept coming undone. I wish I had liked this dress because if I had I could have kept the whole box and gotten the 25% discount for doing so.
I loved this dress! It’s almost a quilted material so it hangs nicely. It zips up in the back. The thing that’s nice about this dress is because it’s a heavier material, it can really be quite versatile… I can wear it alone with a pair of sandals in the summer or dress it up a little bit with boots and a jean jacket in the fall or if we’re going out to dinner or a wedding-related event I can add a cardigan, heels and some jewelry and it can be a little more fancy. I LOVE IT! Definitely keeping this one!
So basically I have to decide… keep both shirts or just one? I’m sending back the Maxi dress and getting a cheaper one from Target instead, and I’ll send back the polka-dot dress which was just totally unflattering.
I’m still waiting for that perfect box with five items I want to keep but I figure if I keep getting Fixes every few months, it’s bound to happen eventually!
