For this month’s Stitch Fix I made an interesting request of my stylist. I’ve been receiving and buying so many cute dresses and outfits and I absolutely love them – but I don’t know that I need a ton more. So I decided to request something a little bit different from my usual style. I asked my stylist to try and find clothing that was sexy without being provocative – maybe a little bit of a detour from my usual “cute” look. I knew it was a rather vague and not easy request to fulfill, but I thought she did a great job! Julie was my stylist again and she is great. She also mentions that she reads the blog – so, hi Julie! If you want to try Stitch Fix (and you can do so with my referral link!) I’d definitely recommend requesting her.
If you’re not familiar, Stitch Fix is a subscription box service that has you fill out a style profile survey, and then they send you 5 clothing items to try on – you decide what to keep and what to send back!
Let’s take a look at what I got!
Crescent Benatar Lace Applique Blouse – $44
For the most part I liked this. The detail on the top was nice, if the rest was a little plain. It had a high neckline which I wasn’t sure was flattering, and also wasn’t sure if it was sexy. So of course I asked the expert (my husband) and he said that for being a highly neckline it was for some reason “weirdly attractive.” Despite that, I sent it back. I did like it but I’m not sure I $44 liked it, especially compared to other stuff I got.
Collective Concepts Paddio Lace Inset Blouse – $54
In theory I liked this top – in fact, I had pinned it on my Pinterest as something I was interested in (in a different color though). I actually love bright, warm colors, but I’m not sure this yellow was the best look for me. The fit was just a little bit big on me and the top was rather see-through so it was another one that would require a tank underneath. For those reasons and the higher price point for a blouse I sent it back.
Papermoon Fatima Dress – $78
This was another one that I had put on Pinterest – I love the style of it and the pattern! I feel like it’s different from anything else I own. I wasn’t sure how I felt about it on me when I put it on. I need to wear a strapless bra with it which is a little bit of a downfall. I liked it and my husband and friends all said it looked good so I kept this one. Can’t wait til the weather gets warmer so I can wear it!
Brixon Ivy Bonita Dress – $88
There were a lot of things I loved about this dress. It fit really well and felt very comfy. It’s also pretty. But at the end of the day, it’s also $88 for basically a little black dress. Jason felt it was too boring and too expensive, so it didn’t make the cut.
Papermoon Paulette Lace Detail Blouse – $48
At first I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the floral pattern, but in person once I tried it on I really liked it! This one is something different and I really like the lace detailing at the top too. My favorite things I get from Stitch Fix are those that I feel like I haven’t seen in stores or could get something similar for less money. So this one was a keeper!
If you’re interested in signing up for your own Fix, I would love it if you’d use my referral link – it would give me a $25 credit to use on a future fix, and doesn’t cost you anything. I used a friend’s link when I signed up for mine so I could help her out, so I know it’s much appreciated!
