Stitch Fix #12

Stitch Fix is back.  Back in my good graces.  I'm so glad I figured out my little Pinterest issue, because this was a good fix.  My stylist actually listened to me; I received a couple things I requested and a few surprises.  The surprise element is most of the fun!  I seriously love waiting for my Stitch Fix box to arrive, and then quickly checking out all the goodies!  So let's get to the fix (excuse my white white legs...it is the middle of winter after all...):

Pixely Lyra Chevron Print Dress
So I feel like the chevron ship has sailed.  I'm seriously hating everything chevron these days.  However... a big however, this dress didn't seem all that chevrony to me.  If "chevron" wasn't in the item description, I probably wouldn't have described it that way.  So I tried to block out my chevron hatred and assess from there.  I LOVED this dress.  The Pixely brand is always so so soft.  I liked the 3/4 sleeve and the colors.  It screams spring to me!  I may just wear this on Easter.  It also has a little bit of a 60s/70s vibe going on that I like.  Although this dress has a high neckline, it's super stretchy so I can actually pull it down to breastfeed in!  Also, it should be noted that I do not think this dress photographs all that well; it's far cuter in person.  So this was obviously a keeper!


Skies are Blue Vernetta Dress
I really wanted to like this dress, and overall I did.  But the embroidery down the middle seemed a little strange; I would have preferred buttons.  And since this is not breastfeeding friendly in any way,  I had to send it back.



Laila Jayde Bali V-Neck Top
I love a good v-neck!  Especially a long one like this!  I specifically requested this item, but I didn't love it on me.  The color isn't great for my skin tone nor hair color, plus it was a bit clingy in an unflattering sort of way.  Especially around the button to my jeans and the belt loops.  The material is a faux suede of sorts and is super soft.  It just wasn't for me.


Market & Spruce Corinna Striped Dolman Top
I have had my eye on the gray dolman with mint colored stripes and had requested it.  The white stripes in this one was just a bit too simple.  I like dolman tops, but I don't need more gray & white in my wardrobe right now.  


Papermoon Marisol Mixed Material 3/4 Sleeve Knit Top
I am not a fan of mixed material tops.  Not at all.  And the material in this top felt thin & cheap.  I sent it right back!



Per usual, I am already excited for my next fix.  If you still haven't tried Stitch Fix, do it!  I promise you will love the surprise & delight!  And I will love the little bit of credit I get, so the fixes can keep on coming!  So tell me, did I keep the right item?!  Please tell me that dress is not true chevron...

  1. It is AMAZING that that dress is nursing friendly! Any cute dress that fits that bill? I'm sold on it!

    I'm sad you didn't keep the dolman because I love mine so much! I get why you didn't- but stilllllll

  2. First of all, the purple shades in the dress look perfect on you with your blonde hair. Second, I don't think I would have called it chevron either - so you're safe there! Definitely feel like you kept the cutest item of the bunch!:)

  3. That first dress - adorable!! And I love that the neck stretches. I've yet to find a dress that does that!
    After three fixes I have yet to receive any sort of dolman. How is that even possible with SF?!

  4. The dress you kept looks great on you! Definitely a keeper! I liked the last top, but I do like mixed media tops, but not if the material feels cheap. Good thing fixing your Pinterest helped!

  5. I like the dolman!! I'm a sucker for any striped top! Were you hoping for grey with mint stripes instead of white?

  7. I think of that dress as more of an embroidery/macrame print than chevron ;)

  8. Ahh I can't stand mixed material tops either - thought I was the only one! Loving that dress you kept though and I think it will be so perfect for Easter!

  9. Love both dresses. The purple chevron is so amazing on you with that pop of color. The other one is adorable too, but the "design" on top a bit odd.

  10. I really like that last top! Not sure how I feel about mixed material tops though, so maybe I would have sent it back as well.

  11. Love that first dress!! I love the bottom shirt, too, with the mixed fabric, but I know what you mean about feeling cheap. I totally agree with your choices...enough gray and white! It is a cute shirt, though!

  12. oooh i love that chevron dress on you! i am with you, hate chevron but there a couple of things that aren't too chevron-y. i got my fix today and i have a chevron dress in it lol but haven't tried it on yet. i also have that grey & white striped dolman top and sometimes i grab it but mostly not. i probably didn't need another striped top when i bought it, oh well.

  14. That dress is so cute and looks gorgeous on you! Love the colors and I'm with you on being over chevron, but that pattern looks sharp!

    I broke up with Stitch Fix - two boxes in a do just couldn't justify hit and miss items at their prices. I will miss the surprises though! Mail is too fun. I did keep a dolman shirt from my last fix and it's outrageously soft!

  15. Everyone is hating chevron and I still can't quit it, granted I don't own any patterned clothes but the actual print is so cute. Also, you haven't seen white legs unless you've seen mine and since they never see the light of day, you're spared. You're welcome ;)

  16. I LOVE that first dress and am so glad you kept it! But I also liked the second one! But I totally get why you wouldn't keep it.
    I also LOVE that dolman, but I'm partial because I LOVE LOVE mine. I've been dying for another one and keep begging for one but so far they haven't sent me another Corinna!

  17. Ah, so fun!! I still haven't signed up for this but I would totally love to have new goodies sent to my door each month as well! Such a fun way to check out clothes I never would have taken a second glance at at the store! I'm getting soooo tempted the more I ramble on in the comment, ha ha!

  18. I haven't seen the Pixley dress like that! I have the same color "chevron" Henley and I love love it!! You just can't describe how soft/comfy that fabric is. And I love the second dress too, but I'm a sucker for polka dots. Totally get why you didn't keep for breastfeeding issues though! :)

  19. That first dress is so pretty! Perfect for Easter!

  21. I'm so glad you figured out the issue and this one was better? And I totally agree with all your choices, and no that dress is not too chevron-y! ;)
