Yesterday I got my second stitch fix and it was pretty awesome, but I think the first one was my favorite so far.
Here were the items I got:
I followed the cards provided for each item and tried everything on. Here were the results.
The card for the crochet top suggested pairing it with jean shorts and a teal cardigan. I don’t have any jean shorts (see previous post about the perils of finding shorts for a pear shape) and despite the fact that I have a rainbow of cardigans hanging in my closet, I do not have a teal one.
Since I wanted to try a summer look, I modified this a bit and went with a pair of khaki shorts and metallic sandals instead. The top itself is pretty comfortable and soft, and it looks okay with this outfit. It will probably look better with jeans as the second outfit suggested.
I loved the print on this right off the bat. I love anything navy with white.
Again, trying to mix it up I decided to try the skirt idea, but I don’t have any red pencil skirts, so I went with a red a-line skirt I had instead.
I mostly went with the suggested accessories, but swapped out the black pumps for nude sandals. I think that works better with this type of skirt. I think this top will look great with red skinny jeans, or mustard skinny jeans. (Both on my current wish list. I hope Ann Taylor Loft makes a curvy version this fall!!)
Tie neck blouse
For this one, I really love the idea of this with dark jeans and a red cardigan, but decided to try the pencil skirt since the only pencil skirt I do own is black.
This outfit is awfully dressy and a little outside of my comfort zone, but I like it and I know the blouse can be worn other ways. Now if I’m in the mood to look like a Mad Men secretary, I know I can pull together the look.
Funky Wrap Blouse
This one was tricky. On the hanger, this blouse was all open in the front, but when I put it on it looked more like the picture. They suggested pairing it with light colored skinnies, so I tried it with my mint skinny jeans from LOFT.
And the verdict… not a fan. It is super boxy in the front doing nothing for my shape and really long in the back. I love the necklace, but decided this top needed to go back.
So overall, I ended up keeping 4/5 items at a total cost of $202. It would have only been 8 dollars more if I kept the last top since keeping all 5 items gives you a 25% discount, but I didn’t want to keep something I didn’t like. (Less closet space!)
I already went ahead and scheduled my next fix and can’t wait to see what they send me next! If anyone is interested in trying it out, I have a referral code. Thanks!
