So it turns out mid-December was a pretty poor time to receive a Stitch Fix. In addition to all of the regular spending with presents and the holidays, I unfortunately hit a deer and need to spend the money to fix my car, and we found out our insurance doesn’t cover filling the cavities of me or my husband. So let’s just say that we’re a couple thousand dollars over what we intended to spend this month.
Before I opened the box I told myself I would only keep 1 item so as not to lose my styling credit. I was very excited to see that my usual stylist, Julie, was back from maternity leave and put together this box for me! There were 3 things I would have kept if it was in the budget.
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!
Pinon Lace Detail Blouse – $48
This was pretty – I liked the vibrant color and the lace detail. I would have kept it if I had the money. It was a little pricey for a relatively simple shirt though. I liked something else better so back it went.
Breyson Pleated Tab-Sleeve Blouse – $58
I liked the color of this shirt but that was about it. The sleeves were a bit too tight and I was not a fan of the pleat. So it was easy enough to send this one back.
David Faux Suede Jacket – $78
So interestingly, this one is my keeper! It’s not my usual style at all but I like stepping outside the box a bit. It’s soft and so comfortable. When I tried it on my husband said, “It looks like it would be good if you were a smuggler in the Star Wars universe.” It definitely makes me feel badass when I wear it, haha. So I’m going to try and make a conscious effort to wear it often!
Melissa Mixed Geo Print Pencil Skirt – $48
This pencil skirt just didn’t work for me. I liked the pattern and material but that was it. I don’t like trying to pull off a pencil skirt because I feel like you have to be really thin for it to look good – I’ve got too much hips and a little bit of tummy! And I don’t like the ones that go below the knee, they just seem awkward to me.
Aerin Dress – $58
The dress is one that I liked and wish I could have kept as well. It’s kind of simple but it was comfortable and cute. At half the price I would have kept it. As it is, my husband pointed out that I already have other dresses that are prettier.
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!
