It’s Stitch Fix time! I kind of forgot I had a fix coming at the end of January, given all the crazy stuff that had gone on this month. I didn’t fill out a note or anything, so when I got the email it was coming it was a pleasant surprise! Even better was when I opened the letter that comes with it and saw that I had the same stylist, Julie, again. I’m glad she’s stayed with the company so long and that I get to have her every time!
Sade New York Martey Knit Wrap Dress – $78
I don’t own any wrap dresses, but I kind of like the style of them – I’ve just had trouble finding one that works for me. A lot of times they end up being really low cut, which isn’t work appropriate. This one didn’t have that problem. I liked the fit of the dress, it was a good length, and for the most part it would have been a good one – except for the pattern. It’s covered in nautical knots and that’s just not my thing. Plus the price was very high on this one. Even if it was a pattern I liked I’m not sure I would be willing to pay $78 for it.
Ellie Printed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse – $48
This top was pretty comfortable and soft, but again with an odd pattern. I will say I liked the elephants more than the knots, but I still just wasn’t a huge fan of this. I guess I’m just not an elephant person. Plus it was a rather sheer top, slightly see-through, and I don’t do well with white. This went back.
Kaslo Mixed Material Top – $44
Now this one was a top that definitely fit my style. Due to how cold it is at my desk and how hot it can be when doing storytime, I tend to favor a short sleeved shirt paired with a cardigan all year long. I loved the bright colors and pattern on this one. But the thing that really pushed it over the edge was what the inside tag said – machine washable and tumble dry! So many Stitch Fix items are hand wash and I don’t have a lot of time for hand washing, so they sit around too long. Being able to throw this in the washing machine made it a definite keeper for me.
Kut from the Kloth Simmons Bootcut Jean – $88
I have my Stitch Fix profile set to not receive pants, but she either forgot or just thought I might like these anyway. They sent a size 6 and I was happy to see that they fit, considering I’ve been waffling between a 6 and an 8 recently. But they were also a bit too long. And they were $88. I just bought two pairs of jeans at Target last month that I love. They fit amazingly well and feel great, and they were $30 each. I couldn’t wear $88 jeans, I’d be too paranoid to walk around in them! So these were definitely going back.
Jalen Lace Detail Dress – $74
Out of the box I loved this dress. Once I tried it on I loved this dress. However, I did not keep this dress. It makes me sad but unfortunately the logical side of me had to come out. It’s gorgeous, but it’s too short for work. I would only be able to wear it at non-work events and only during the summer (so it was a little hard to imagine wearing it in January). I knew it would be something I would only wear maybe two or three times a year at most. And with all of the money we’ve spent recently on Merlin’s vet bills, I knew I couldn’t justify paying $74 for a piece I would only wear twice a year. Sadly, it went back.
Overall this fix was a little hit or miss, but a big part of that is my fault – I forgot to write a note to my stylist describing what I would like this time around. She absolutely nailed it with the top I kept and the one dress. And I like that she took some risks with the other dress and top. They may not have been patterns I liked but I enjoy interesting patterns so I’d love to get more things that aren’t boring. For example, if there was a top with giraffes instead of elephants I would definitely consider keeping that 😉
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!
