Another Fix = Another Post! I got some seriously cute clothes this time around and I was in love with all five pieces but I didn’t keep them all. Read on and check out the cute things I got and what I decided to keep and what I decided to send back!
I think the key to getting really great fixes is talking with your stylist – I was matched up with Julie from the start and she really hit it out of the park with this fix. If she’s reading, hey Julie! You’re awesome! In my note to Julie for this Fix, I specifically asked for tops that could be used as layering pieces – I’m a sucker for a good cardigan and I have a ton of them – but I don’t have a lot of tops that I can use to layer, so I always end up using the same black or white top. I requested patterns and color and Julie gave me just that!
Item One: 41 Hawthorn Carla Crochet Detail Blouse – This top was the most gorgeous shade of Kelly green and had beautiful detailing along the neckline and arms. I was in love as soon as I pulled it out of the box…but alas, my darn hips killed this top. Amazingly it fit in the spot that is normally my problem area – my big ol chest! However, the material had no give and so when it hit my hips…it just bunched up! I absolutely loved this top but I had to send it back! *sigh*
Item Two: Market & Spruce Lawford Knit Top – Another love at first sight piece; but then again, I loved everything in this Fix! I’m a sucker for navy and white because it’s such a classic look, but this top has leather detailing at the neck and on the sleeves that really sets it apart and makes it more than just a plain old navy and white striped top. It will be great as a layering piece and as the temperatures warm up it will look so cute on it’s own! So of course, I kept this one!
Item Three: Sweet Grey Lisha Scoop Neck Knit Top – Polka dots! Is there anyone that doesn’t love polka dots? I am definitely not one of those people; I loved this shirt from the minute I pulled it out of the box! It’s made of such a soft material and lays really nicely. The scoop neck is flattering without being too showy in the bust and of course, the polka dots are adorable! I cannot wait to wear this one – because; of course, I kept this one too!
Item Four: Le Lis Sutherlin Contrast Print Knit Top – Hands down this was my favorite piece from this Fix! The material is soft and the design; well, I might not have chosen something like this on my own but as soon as I put it on I loved it! This top will be great dressed up or down (in fact, I may be planning to wear it out tonight…ha-ha!) and because it’s lightweight it will make both a great layering piece and a stand alone piece. Also, the detailing on the sleeves = love! I definitely kept this piece!
Item Five: Daniel Rainn Bernal Split Neck Blouse – Another absolutely beautiful top with such wonderful detailing at the sleeves and neck! I loved the floral pattern and I thought the unfinished edges gave it a unique look… Alas, my hips got in the way yet again because this top was made with a fabric that has very little give. I loved it so much and could have seen it working with so many things, but I had to send it back!
All in all – I thought this sixth Fix was a real winner. I haven’t quite yet had a homerun (I haven’t kept an entire box) but I’m sure the time is coming. I recently updated my Fix schedule so that I’ll be getting a Fix every other month. I’ve loved getting one each month but a girl has got bills to pay and so I decided it would be best for my budget if I didn’t get a box every month!
Stitch Fix is such an awesome service and I love having one of a kind pieces that have been picked just for me! Another thing Stitch Fix recently started doing is allowing it’s customers to give back – and I think that is so amazing! Once you’re done with your Stitch Fix box, if you have clothes that you’d like to donate to Goodwill you simply fill up your box, seal it up, go online and print out the postage paid mailing label and drop the box off at your local post office. How cool is that?
If you haven’t signed up for Stitch Fix – what are you waiting for? I don’t know what more to say to convince you that this service is something everyone should try at least once…but I feel like if you try it more than once, you’ll probably fall in love!
