You win some, you lose some. Last month I raved about box number 10, but this month didn’t have as many keepers. Only 1 item was saved from the return bag. No bigs. I expect this to happen from time to time and it helps your stylist understand what you like or how your preferences might be changing. After 11 fixes, I am still super excited to see that brown and blue box sitting in my lobby. Let’s get down to bizness:
Fate: Gabby Mesh Detail Blouse – $48.00. Status: SENT BACK
This was a cute shirt and I loved the detail on the top. I’m always looking for good layering tops to pair with blazers and sweaters or wear on their own. I thought this one was just a little bit too sheer and it was also snug across the chest and waist. I would have preferred it to look more loose and flowy at the bottom.
Kut From The Kloth: Aberdine Straight Leg Jean – $88.00. Status: SENT BACK
I’ll admit that “WTF” was the first thought I had when I pulled these out of the box. I still thought that when I initially tried them on. The size was listed as an ankle. Was it supposed to be like a capri fit or a normal, regular fit? It was neither. I didn’t quite like where the length hit. Also, the color was quite similar to the distressed pair of jeans I kept from my last fix and I really didn’t need another pair of medium rinse jeans. I’ll also admit that they did sort of grow on me. They were super comfortable and fit pretty perfectly (unblemished track record, stitch fix!). The next day I saw a pair almost exactly like them on Anthropologie. Maybe this length is the new style.
Gilli: Kadence Cowl Drape Front Dress – $64.00. Status: SENT BACK
This dress made me feel like I was getting ready to go sing in the church choir. It just looked too conservative and matronly on me. I did not like where the length hit either. I’d rather have it be above the knee (maybe at the knee) or a midi length. Right under the knee is not a good look on me, especially since I’m on the shorter side.
Zad: Val Chandelier Earring – $28.00. Status: KEPT
These earrings are cute and match my style. I don’t think I would have normally paid $28 for these. Since I didn’t keep anything else from this fix and the $20 styling fee is credited back if you purchase any items, it made sense for me to keep these. In my mind, this math made them $8. I’ve never been good at math, so that may or may not make sense. I later noticed that these looked like the same earrings crazy Kelsey was wearing on the Bachelor: After the Final Rose. After googling I found that they are different (phew!)
Honey Punch: Renoir Kimono – $44.00. Status: SENT BACK
This was a piece I requested specifically in my last note to my stylist. I saw some really cute ones and pinned them to my style board on Pinterest (which your stylist can refer to). I should have been more specific because I wanted a multi color, patterned or floral one. Since I am in black/white/gray 99% of the time, I can see why I was sent this one. I’d rather have one I could wear with black to spice up an outfit. I wasn’t a big fan of the stark black and white and I’m kind of over chevrons.
