I Should Have Kept the Jacket

Lawyering, shopping

My last Stitch Fix fit great, but was a little bland. That was probably a good thing because otherwise I would have kept all five items for the second Fix in a row.

I miss this jean jacket every day. But it was $98 (the most expensive item in my Fix) and I just couldn’t justify it. I haven’t been able to find one like it since and I’m so bummed because now I know I need one!

Under that jean jacket I’m wearing an incrediblely comfortable maxi dress. I’d been hoping to get a maxi dress in one of my fixes. I would have absolutely kept it except that it was grey. Something about wearing a grey, comfy outfit made me feel like I was walking around in a sweat suit. I’m all about wearable fashion, but I couldn’t live with myself in a grey sweat suit.

The shirt I did keep was this super soft, mens cut dark navy plaid shirt. I would wear it several times a week if I could get away with it.

The pants I’m wearing also came in my fix. I really liked them too but I have so many black work pants it just seemed silly. My biggest comment to my stylist was that my fix needed color. I like to keep interesting items in my wardrobe and all grey/white/black/navy doesn’t fit that bill.

The last item in the box was this black and white tank. I have one split back tank from Stitch Fix that I really like, but it’s a moderate slit. This one was a bit too risque for me, even with a cami underneath. (Those pants are also the ones that came in the fix. I love that you can pair the items in the box together, as well as pair the items with your own closet.)

The Stylists that I’ve had are very receptive to feedback so I’m sure the next fix I get will have some color. I just hope there’s also a maxi dress inside!

Have you gotten a Fix? What did you think?

    i have yet to bite the bullet on stitch fix! i feel like my sizes are ALL over the place!! i don’t think i would have as much success as I see my friends having!

    I LOVE that maxi dress! especially with the jean jacket! i basically live in maxis all summer long and i feel like i have a hard time finding ones with any type of sleeve. my workplace is a lot more casual i think than yours so i can see your side of it being too much like a sweat suit :)

      You do answer a lot of questions about sizing but I can see why you’d be nervous! I can be a bit more casual than I’m used to from working at firms, but not sweat suit casual :) haha. Maxis are just so perfect for summer!

      Thanks for stopping by :)
