Happy Valentine’s Day to me! I was excited to get my second Stitch Fix shipment yesterday and it did not disappoint! Conveniently, I was all showered and ready to play dress up when my box arrived.
Colors & patterns galore! There was only one piece I wasn’t immediately drawn to, but we’ll get to that in a sec. 🙂
Let’s get started!
Tart Yusuf Embellished Shoulder Striped Top, $58
Initial impression: Ooooh, navy stripes! Mama likey!
Thoughts: At first glance I was super excited about this shirt. It had some bling on the shoulders so it was different than any of my other striped shirts. I was a little leery about the thin shoulder pads that were under the bling, but after trying it on, I barely noticed the pads.
Ultimately: Sending back. Sadly, this shirt was a little snug and not quite long enough.
41Hawthorn Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse, $58
Initial impressions: Oh no, gauzy material shirt again. Not sure about this one, but I’m willing to keep an open mind.
Thoughts: I liked the color and the interesting details. The sleeves are very unique and I thought the shirttail hemline was flattering on me. When I first slipped it over my head I was worried it was going to be a little tight, but once I got it on all the way, it was a perfect fit!
Ultimately: Keeping! I don’t have anything like this in my closet and the fit combined with unique details, make it a WINNER!
Sanctuary Rizzo Skinny Ponte Pants, $88
Initial impressions: Meh, black pants. With my luck they probably won’t fit.
Thoughts: Sorry for showing you my buttocks up there, but I wanted to show that the pants have fake pockets so they look like jeans (click photo to make bigger), but they are comfortable like leggings. The material is quite thick so there’s no sheerness to it at all. They’re a teensy bit long, but they can easily be hemmed or rolled up (please ignore my uneven roll job above. :P).
Ultimately: Keeping. The cost was a bit on the high side, but I could tell that they were good quality and they fit me like a glove! I foresee these being worn a LOT.
Lily Josefina Knit Chevron Pencil Skirt, $68
Initial impressions: This skirt was the one thing that I was not feeling at all, but I reserved complete judgement until I tried it on.
Thoughts: It’s made of a stretchy material so it’s very comfy to wear, but not only was I not digging the print or the color, it was a little longer than I like and maybe just a smidgen too big.
Ultimately: Sending back
41Hawthorn Lara Bicycle Print Infinity Scarf, $36
Initial impressions: The first thing to catch my eye. Great color & print!
Thoughts: It’s a light weight summer scarf and the bicycle print is to.die.for! I super duper duper love it, BUT…I’m not a summer scarf girl and I’m just not sure how often I’ll wear it.
Ultimately: Sending back. This one actually makes me really sad to send back. I haven’t packed it up yet so I may still decide to keep it. I don’t know that I can part with these adorable bicycles! Thoughts? Yay/Nay? Am I crazy to love it so much? Update: I begrudgingly sent it back. 😦
SO, there you have it! The unboxing of my second Fix. I thought it was amusing that the two items that I wasn’t sure about were the ones I ended up loving and keeping. Which is why I love Stitch Fix! I get to try on pieces that I wouldn’t normally have tried on before.
