Based on my last positive stitch fix experience I decided to give it another try. Unfortunately the stylist who did a great job for me (Lindsey) was on vacation so I got another stylist that didn’t seem to read my past notes or get what I was looking for. This time I asked for bright happy colors (check), and a focus on skirts and dresses (not check), and maybe a top that would go well with shorts (half check?). Here’s what I got.
Urban Expressions – Adelade Woven Fold Over Clutch $48
I went back on forth on this one and debated it over night. I normally would never use a clutch and don’t even own one, but I loved the feel of this bag. It is classic with a great neutral color and the bag itself was just a great size for a night out. In the end I decided to keep it since I don’t already have any clutches and I thought it would be good to have one on hand should the occasion ever present itself.
Renee C – Alecia Abstract Print Maxi Dress $68
While I liked the pattern on this, the fabric was a bit itchy and almost iridescent, but the worst part was the fit. A blousy top like that doesn’t look good on me and I need tops to accentuate my waist in order to flatter my pear shape. This did nothing for my top or bottom half and a belt made it worse. This went back.
Pixley – Abriella Waffle Knit Cardigan $48
This one gets filed under “what were they thinking?” It was like a giant chenille bathrobe. Great for 90 degree weather, no? It was uncomfortable and unflattering and just a no all around. I know I said no drapey cardigans in the past and this is definitely that.
Pixley – Edmond Chevron Print Henley Shirt $54
Something I can wear. I like the soft knit of this top and wore it the next day for an impromptu trip to a nearby island (not the tropical kind, the kind that is surrounded by the Puget Sound and you go to in order to get away from 90 degree heat.) This was a keeper.
THML – Rosalie Embroidery Panel Back Zip Tank $68
And again, No. I also asked for no tanks or sleeveless tops and here we go. This one had itchy fabric sides, and if I moved my arms away from my body I looked like a giant triangle. Great for pear shapes, tops that make you look like a triangle. Back it went.
While I didn’t really get dresses/skirts that I was looking for, I ended up with a clutch that I unexpectedly ended up falling in love with and a nice knit top to wear with shorts. I still hold out hope that if I try again in July with Lindsey I’ll get some good pieces again. Maybe I just haven’t loved the Golden Tote options lately so I have been wanting to get back into stitch fix. I think I’ll give it another shot in July.
