This month’s stitch fix was somewhat disappointing, but I did get one incredible item. Here’s what I requested:
And Here’s what I got. Mostly dark colors…
Bancroft – Cambridge Metal Belt Cuff Bracelet $28
I didn’t care for this bracelet, it just wasn’t my style and was uncomfortable for someone who is typing all day.
Market & Spruce – Leavenworth Sleeveless Top $44
To be fair, I did pin this on my pinterest board, but in person the colors were more navy/red than purple/red like it looked in the picture from Stitch Fix. Also the collar hit me uncomfortably and if I’m wearing a sleeveless top I don’t want a high neck.
Leota – Abilene Polka Dot Dress $148
I fell in love with this dress before I saw the price. The cut, the fabric, the polka dots! I loved everything but was a bit sticker shocked when I saw the price. Despite that I decided this was the one item I was keeping this month. I already wore it to work.
Tart – Kaylie Solid French Terry Blazer $128
Again, this just wasn’t my style. It was very “Academic/Preppy” which I don’t really wear and had shoulder pads. Also a really high price tag for a knit blazer. I was surprised at the price of the items this month!
Brixon Ivy – Steph Dress $58
Absolutely not. This is a very thin knit cut in a very unflattering nightgown shape. She said she sent this because I had pinned a similar dress from the stitch fix pinterest page, but on the stick thin twiggy model this looked adorable. With my figure, a shapeless nightgown is not something I’d ever wear or pick for myself. I wish the stylist kept the client’s body type in mind when picking items not the literal things they saw on pinterest. I like the idea or look of some things but not the literal translation for me.
So while I was happy with my adorable (albeit expensive) polka dot dress, the rest of the items were off and not at all my style or right for my body type. I signed up for a September fix but am considering cancelling it and purchasing a pair of Hunter boots I’ve been eyeing on the Nordstrom site… What do you think?
