I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I have two sets of clothes for warmer weather: 1) Lawyer clothes, and 2) Casual Saturday Afternoon Clothes. There is no in between. I wanted to go into spring with some beautiful pieces that I could wear to work, but more importantly, that I could wear out and about when I wanted to put some actual effort into my appearance. My stylist totally hit the nail on the head for what I was looking for!
Before we get started, let me peek around and make sure no one is watching me pose in front of a tripod….
Ok. We are good to go. Are you interested in Stitch Fix but don’t know how to get started? It’s a great service where you fill out a survey on your fashion preferences, sizes and your desire to be more or less daring in your fix. Your Stitch Fix costs $20 and if you keep even one item in the box (called your “fix”), that $20 will be credited toward the cost! Then, if you keep all five items, you will get 25% off your total order! Order your first stitch fix in minutes!
So let’s get into the details of my Fix! Unfortunately I didn’t save my information card. I’m not sure why, because I always do. But because of that I only have the official names of the two items I kept.
The first items I tried on were this purple lace top and these blue polka dot pants.
I really liked this purple top. The lace detail on the sleeves was so dainty and beautiful, and the color was perfect. However, the cut was not. This shirt was absolutely my size and the shoulders fit great, but the rest of it was really boxy. I don’t look good in boxy. So, I sadly had to return it.
The blue polka dot pants were also in my fix and when I opened my Fix, I loved them. But after trying them on, I still wasn’t sure so I kept them on while I continued trying clothes on.
Next I tried the Karla Cutout Neckline Blouse with the Blue Polka Dot Pants, and then later with a pair of jeans I bought at Target.
It started to rain in the middle of my photoshoot, of course. But the show must go on! If we stopped doing things in this area because it rained, we’d never get anything done.
I really liked the shirt! It had a looser fit but it wasn’t the boxy shape of the purple shirt. I also really liked the cut outs. They were a unique change from my standard work blouses. Plus, J saw it and also agreed that it was a flattering cut. I think this will be a great shirt to wear to work, tucked into my suit, and then straight to a networking event after work, untucked. The Karla Cutout Neckline Blouse was a keeper!
It was after this that I determined the blue pants were a no. They were a crop cut which mostly just looked too short for me. And I felt like minnie mouse when I put on the red shirt. They went back into the box.
As soon as I saw the Katelynn Printed Dress, I KNEW it was going to be my Easter dress as long as it fit. And it did! I am in love with this dress and it’s been so hard not to wear it until Easter. The fabric is light and soft and the colors are beautiful. I wish it would work for weddings this summer but it’s a little too white. Either way, it will be wonderful for spring and summer!
And lastly, this blazer… I like the idea, I like to stripes, I like the color… it looked HORRIBLE on me. Absolutely horrible. You can even see how uncomfortable I felt on my face. J’s immediate response was “no.” So back in the box it went.
In the end I kept two items and returned three. You’ll notice I don’t have accessories in my Fix. I specifically exclude them because I don’t spend a lot of money on accessories and I don’t like feeling like I am wasting an item from my box. I spent a total of $126, so after the $20 styling fee credit and then a $25 referral credit from someone ordering a Fix by using my affiliate link, I paid $101. This definitely seemed reasonable for buying a dress and a blouse that can be used both at and outside of work.
I love getting my Stitch Fix! I only order them when I have room in my budget for new clothes. You can sign up for a monthly, quarterly or other similar pattern, or, like me, you can just order a box when you’re ready for another Fix. Have you ordered one before? Do you think I made the right or wrong choice on any of these items? Let me know in the comments!
