Does anyone out there feel like they still have not recovered from the holidays? Well, me either. Confession time: I snoozed four times this morning. Even Lollie was impressed.
Even though I had initially scheduled my second Stitch Fix to arrive on the 3rd, I saw that it shipped early and that it would be arriving on New Year’s Eve! I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I get about these dang packages. You have no idea what they are sending you or what to expect, so the element of surprise definitely makes it very exciting.
I know what time FedEx typically delivers to my apartment, so I obsessively checked the tracking on my Fix to see if it had been delivered. I sped home and found my little surprise at the door! I was now even more confused as to what to expect because this box was significantly smaller than the last one.
ripped open opened the box to see what treasures awaited me. I pulled each item out one by one and loved how they looked. The style was spot on for what I requested and I noticed that my stylist definitely took some of the last fix’s feedback into account. However, my excitement quickly faded as I took a good look at the cut and the material of the items. I knew they wouldn’t be a good fit. Without getting into too much detail, I will just say that this box was the “bad boob box”.
Out of the five items, I did end up keeping one of them. It is ADORABLE and I couldn’t pass it up!
Before we get started on what I received in this fix, I just wanted to make a little PSA. If you are interested in receiving your own Stitch Fix, then PLEASE PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE use my referral link!
I also want to preface this post with this: there is nothing more uncomfortable for me than trying to smile and pose in front of a 10 second self-timer on a camera I placed on top of a box full of baby gifts that is on top of a box full of towels that is on top of a barstool. Complete with lighting I created from removing the lampshade off of an $8 Walmart floor lamp that I placed behind my makeshift tripod. It is easier for me to make silly faces. So I made silly faces.
The first item I picked out was this pretty gold necklace. This versatile necklace would be the perfect finish to, well, just about anything. I didn’t keep it for a couple of reasons:
1. I am cheap and don’t typically spend more than $20 on a necklace.
2. The tassel lays on my chest in an unflattering way. I don’t typically wear dangly necklaces since they lay out on me, not down.
I have decided that going forward, I would like to keep the items in my Fixes to just clothing. My initial purpose for utilizing this service was to gain pieces of clothing I otherwise wouldn’t find or choose, so I would like to stick to just that.
HOW CUTE IS THIS TOP? I fell in love with it the second I pulled it out of the box. It would look great for both under a blazer at work or over some jeans on the weekend. It is also patriotic, so I think I already found my 4th of July outfit (even though the year has just barely begun). I am also wearing the necklace from above. Trying it on with this top almost made me keep it.
This top seems like it would be cute, no? Well it is… just not on me. It gave me a little something I like to call “square boob”. It’s nice, light, and would be perfect for work, but it was just the wrong fit for me.
I actually really loved this blazer! But again, just not on me. I loved the double zipper detail and the fact that it is an open drape style. Wearing a blazer that buttons always has me paranoid that I’m wearing it incorrectly. Do I wear it buttoned? Unbuttoned? I don’t know. I don’t like to button my blazers, so this one didn’t leave me wondering. On me, this blazer had two styles:
1. The “way too open, exposing things that aren’t professional” style.
2. The weird shark fin side flap.
I was sad to send it back.
Lastly, we have the blue peplum dress. This is the piece where I could tell that my stylist listened to my feedback from the last fix. I told her that I don’t like dresses that cling to my stomach. This dress represents exactly what I asked for. It is cute enough for work and the weekend, as well as being SUPER comfy. However, it fit me like a mumu.
I gave my stylist some feedback and suggested a couple items for my next Fix. In my feedback for this Fix, I let them know that I did not find this particular Fix to be “delightful”. My first Fix was so wonderful that it also may have been hard to follow it up. Just because I was not in love with this Fix doesn’t mean I won’t do it again. In fact, I have another one scheduled for the 17th! I know that’s super soon but what can I say… I may be addicted! I still completely feel that this service is such a fun idea and a great way to shop outside of your box. If you haven’t already scheduled your fix, then I strongly suggest doing so. You never know what you might fall in love with!
Thanks for stopping by! See y’all next time…
