Stitch Fix #2 - April 2015

I am very behind on this Stitch Fix post, fix #3 is set to arrive any day now!

With Stitch Fix, you get a box mailed to you with 5 clothing and/or accessories picked out for you by your own personal stylist.  You only keep what you want and you can send back whatever you don’t want in the postage paid envelope. And you can schedule a Fix whenever you want – every 2-3 weeks, monthly, or whenever you want!

Here is what was sent to me in fix #2:

My first thoughts when I opened the box were
  • I like the blue/aqua pattern- Is it a dress, shirt, skirt......
  • I see something pink/red that looks interesting
  • black and blue isn't my favorite color combo
  • ugh- jeans, they will never fit

Octavia Nidia Graphic Print Infinity Scarf $28.00

I love scarves!  The fabric of this scarf was super soft, but I wasn't a huge fan of the blah colors.  I was hoping for something bright and colorful. This was to bland for spring.  RETURNED

Loveappella Shella Knit Top  $54.00
I really liked the color and fabric texture of this shirt.  The shirt was really comfortable and looked nice with jeans and colored pants.  But....it was a little too sheer for me.  I felt like I couldn't wear it without something under it, and then when I tried  to layer it with a tank under it, it just looked ridiculous!  RETURNED

Pixley Montgomery Chevron Cross-Front Top-  $48.00

I knew right away that this was not going to work for me.  I didn't like the blue and black color combo and it just looked baggy.  I tried it on though because you never know!  My initial thoughts were confirmed, this tank was not for me!  It was WAY to loose and baggy and the cross-over front gaped open in an awkward way.  I would have to wear something else under it and I am not really interested in wearing a tank under a tank.  RETURNED

41Hawthorn Renesme Geo Print Faux Wrap Dress-  $78.00

This was the blue/aqua pattern that I noticed right away when I opened my box, and when I saw that it was a wrap dress I was even more excited!  I tried it on and it was perfect!  The fabric was soft and it was lined so it wasn't too sheer.  I like that it is a "faux" wrap dress too- I don't have to worry about the wrap coming undone!  I don't usually spend this much on a dress, but I felt like this dress was colorful, fit great, was well constructed, and could be worn in different seasons.  I got many compliments when I wore this dress to work!  KEPT!

Kut From the Kloth- Dayna Skinny Jean-  $88.00

I don't have a picture of the actual jeans because....well, jeans are jeans.  This was the item I was most hesitant about when I opened the box.  I hate trying to find jeans!  They never fit right and the size I wear always changes from brand to brand.  I can try on 30 pairs of jeans at the store and not find anything that fits just right.  Well, my stylist Natalie must be magic because these jeans are quite possibly the best jeans I have ever tried on!  They have just the right amount of stretch in them and they are the perfect length!  I knew right away I was going to keep these, even though I never spend $88 on jeans!  I have already worn these several times and I still love them!  I am still in awe that I was sent a pair of jeans in the mail by someone who doesn't know me and they ended up being the best fitting jeans I have ever had!  KEPT!!!!

In summary, I kept 2 of the 5 items from this fix.  I think my stylist Natalie did a great job picking items out for me, even though I didn't keep it all.  I asked for color and patterns, and she delivered!  And she is a jeans wizard!

For my next fix I asked for bright colors, spring/summer type clothes and something with either a polka dot or chevron pattern.  Stay tuned, my next Fix is set to arrive later this week!
