Happy Monday! It’s been a long weekend and today is a big day for us (more on that soon! I don’t want to say anything too soon but trust me, I can’t wait to share…no. It’s not what you think.)
It’s taken me nearly four days to finish this blog post. I think that’s indicative of the week I’ve had BUT there are now not one (ah-hem the above #vaguepost) but TWO awesome things about to be announced! Huzzah! Tomorrow, tomorrow I will have more to post
Last Friday, I got my third Stitch Fix. I forgot to post about my second but I actually liked this one – even if I only kept one thing from it. Here’s what my box included this month:
Street Level Parvin Reversible Tote
I liked the bag. I did, even though I didn’t get an image of it. But I’m not really in the market for a new bag and if I was, I probably wouldn’t spend $58 on a bag I can get comparably for $48 at Nordstrom or $35 at Target. I’ve checked out those two bags before…and well the quality just wasn’t there for me to want to spend that kind of money on a bag when I’m not in the market for it.
Liverpool Anita Skinny Pant
I loved these. I loved the fit. I loved the color. These pants got a big fat keep. Normally $80 is a bit heavy for me to spend but with the $20 credit from the styling fee, bringing them down to $58 plus the fact that they’re nice enough I can dress them up for work but also casual enough that I can dress them down for a weekend, I felt they’d get enough wear out of them to justify. I have a pair similar in black that I wear CONSTANTLY from Ann Taylor so I knew these would get plenty of wear out of me.
41Hawthorn Felton Lace Detail Blouse
I ordered a top similar to this from JCrew last year and ended up returning it because it was…just awkward on me. This one? I loved the style and the cut would have worked, but the shoulders were a bit narrow and the chest felt a little too tight. This was the first piece I tried on because I was so excited about it (it would have been perfect with the skinny pants!) but alas, the fit was no bueno.
Skies are Blue Asa Blazer
I don’t really wear blazers often enough and while I loved the look of this, I didn’t love the look of it on me. It was good quality but I wasn’t crazy about the hook front.
Skies are Blue Dupree Split Neck Blouse
Ugh, I went back and forth on this one. I loved the top. I loved the style. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as flattering on me as I wish it was. I didn’t LOVE the color – I much rather prefer navy blues to cobalt blues. If I wasn’t on a tight budget this month, I would have kept it – no doubt. But I am on a tight budget and that tight budget doesn’t leave room for me to keep things that I waver on. If I have to pause about whether I really love it or not, I probably don’t love it enough to keep it.
All in all, I did love the styles picked – but colors and fits kept me from going all in on this fix. That being said, they’ve gotten better and better so I am looking forward to my next fix at the end of January!
Have you tried Stitch Fix? If not, I highly recommend!
