Confession: I’ve gotten two or three Stitch Fix boxes that I never even shared on the blog. One I hated so much that I didn’t even care to write about it (and for the first time ever, I returned every single piece), one was just so-so, and the other was actually great but I just never got around to taking photos. Oops.
I was starting to think it might be time to stop my Fixes, but I did have just a few holes left in my wardrobe I wanted to fill, so for this one I requested several light sweaters or cardigans and one new pair of dressy skinnies. Thankfully, this month’s stylist delivered and did a darn good job getting my style (shout out to Niko). Cash is a bit tight as we’re pinching pennies to get into a house soon, so I knew that even I loved everything, I’d have to be very picky as to what I kept.
Let’s see what I got!
This price is more steep than I’d prefer, but I like this sweater so much I decided to spurge. After all, a new cardigan is what I was most looking forward to and I wear the crap out of all my cardis. This one has a cute ruched back and draped front. It seems versatile and comfy, and I really think this one is going to be a winner. Kept!
This top was so close but not quite. The style was great, fit was perfect, and I adore draped necklines like these. Even though the price seemed steep, it could have been worth it as it’s dressy and looks very well made. The only reason I couldn’t justify keeping it was that asymetrical “V” of fabric that hung off the bottom just was weird. I like when the fabric drapes off to a side, but this one just kind of awkwardly hung over my crotch. Returned.
Though the price of this top seems a tish high for a casual shirt, I really fell for the style and look of this. It’s not something I would have picked out on my own and had my doubts when I took it out of the box, but I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. It’s basic but cute enough with the crochet detail to dress it up, and was actually pretty flattering. I can see wearing this a lot. Kept!
In theory I should have loved this sweater because it’s just what I asked for, but what I neglected to mention in my style profile is I really hate elbow patches. On top of that, the fabric of this sweater wasn’t very soft, and the fit was just a little off, like it should have been tapered in the waist. It was just kind of lackluster. Returned.
I LOVE how stretchy this fabric was, and the fit was pretty good, but these were just a tish too big. I know from my first Stitch Fix that Liverpool pants shrink a bit, so they may have turned out perfect, but the nail in the coffin was they were just too similar to my other black skinnies. And if I’m going to pay near $100 for one pair of pants, they better blow my mind or be so different and amazing I can’t say no. This did prompt me to specify for my next fix that I’d prefer some cute colored skinny pants instead. Returned.
This was a really good Fix and you nailed my overall style and requests. The few items I returned were so close, but just minor details kept them off the final purchase, and could have been overlooked had prices been a bit lower. I’m still quite happy with my two keepers though!
