April 2015 Stitch Fix #6
In August I signed up for my first Stitch Fix. The promise is that for $20 (which gets credited towards any items you keep) you get five items hand-selected for you by a stylist. You fill out a style profile and link a Pinterest board, so your stylists know what you like. I think my stylists are getting better and better.
I was a little skeptical when I opened the box. It was all over the place, and none of it looked like me, but I promised myself when I started this journey to try everything on.
The first item was probably my favorite just out of the box. I don't own anything in hound"s tooth and the fabric and cut looked promising. I checked out the card Kelsey, my stylist, sent; since I don't own a pencil skirt, I opted for jeans and a sweater.
Other than the wind catching it, and it being cold outside, I am a big fan of this top.
The pants are from another fix, and I wear them once a week. Ignore the hot pink shoes as they were close to the door, and hubby wasn't supposed to shoot my feet.
I opted for my black shrug instead of a drape in gray. I believe this is a great transition to spring piece.

Item #2 was a big fan of my husband's. I don't even own anything in an animal print. The back was also an interesting cut.
It fit surprisingly well given I wasn't sure about it in the box.
Lots of spring events that require some dressy clothes. Husband says this for Red's graduation from high school is a MUST....I"m not sold yet.
Eight Sixty Seraphina Faux Wrap Dress $78
Item #3 was another dress in a similar cut and style, but it is a print more along my taste lines. I am a huge dot fan, and it was a darker color and looser fit.
The suggestion from my friends is red accessories to make this pop.
I could see this made dressy or casual for the classroom. Plus, anything that is comfy and not constricting is a win in my book.
Collective Concepts Zak Faux Wrap Dot Dress $44
This item worried me the most. I have never worn a dolman blouse, and the always look so boxy. Plus, what is up with the cut out top sections. I turned to my style card for help. Jeans and a blazer...I could work that.
This is my suede blazer from a previous fix; probably the most expensive piece of clothing in my closet other than my wedding dress. Jeans are from The Loft.
I was pleasantly surprised by this top and and how it didn't look boxy when I put it on. It worked well with the blazer or on its own. However, what do people wear under these cut tops: bra straps are a no-no for me. Also, how well do they wash?
Pixley Elson Laser-Cut Dolman Blouse $54
#5 is is another blouse, clearly something my stylist feels I need in my wardrobe...which is true. This one is a little longer, bonus, and bright purple, double bonus.
I can always due gray sweater and jeans!
I am pretty happy with this. It needs a tank top underneath, but that is great since I have a Target tank top addiction. I also liked the length as it covered my rear!
