White after Labor Day!

A part of me wanted to break an antiquated fashion rule today and wear white the day immediately following Labor Day.  It gave me a chance to wear the new teal blouse from my latest Stitch Fix and pair it with these amazingly comfortable white knit jeans.  Following the advice on the card that came with this blouse I pulled out my blue chunky necklace from Banana Republic and an old silver bangle.  Perfect outfit for breaking rules, and comfortable for a day back at work after a nice long weekend.

Stitch Fix #3

Stitch Fix #3 has arrived!  I was super excited to see what I got this time.  Upon opening the box I saw a variety of darker patterns, presumably for fall.

Farah Fit & Flare Striped Dress from Ark n Co

I think this was my favorite item from this box.  The fit and flare style was perfect for my pear shape, and I love the pattern and feel of the fabric.  Also, it has pockets!  I love pockets on dresses.

ark n co flare striped dressThe card suggested pairing it with a blue cardigan or grey blazer, but I actually didn’t mind the look of the dress by itself for a change so decided to try it on its own with a chunky necklace.  Love it!

Shanae Printed Tie Waist Dress by Daniel Rainn

I also really ended up loving this dress.  The length was great, and I can see it going well with a wide black belt and tights and boots in the winter.

patterned dressThe card suggested pairing it with a jean jacket which I think would look really cute, but again I wanted to try it by itself with a necklace from a previous stitch fix.

Mission 3/4 Sleeve blouse by 41Hawthorn

I love the color of this blouse, but wasn’t a huge fan of the fabric.  This stitch fix contained three items with fabric that I didn’t care for.  I hope I was able to get that across well enough in my notes to them.  Sometimes polyester can be fine, but in the case of these three tops it felt itchy and non-breathable.  I really love the fit and color of this though so I decided to keep it.

Zelda Plaid blouse by Under Skies

Again, the fabric on this was awful.  It was thick and scratchy, but the pattern happened to go really well with a rust colored pencil skirt I had just bought at Ann Taylor Loft, so I felt like I should keep it.  It looks cute on, but feels rather uncomfortable.

I like it with my teal wedges.

Cellar Open Front Drape Cardigan by Sweet Rain

I was planning to send this item back because I really didn’t like it.  The fabric was itchy and hot and I hated the drape and fit of this.  I’m not a fan of drapey cardigans for my shape.  Unfortunately, if I sent this back I would have been losing the 25% off all items and would have ended up paying more for the order, so here it stays.  I just plan to give it away to a charity shop.

Overall Impressions

This time I loved the two dresses, and liked the teal blouse and the pattern on the plaid one.  I think my first stitch fix was still the best, but I’ve been happy with the price tag for all of these custom picked goods.  The total for this box came to $225.  For two versatile dresses and two blouses I liked, that seems like a pretty good deal.  I scheduled my next stitch fix for 3 weeks out.
