Stitch Fix #14

And so continues my strange love affair with Stitch Fix.  I just can't quit it!  I mean it love it, I really do.  A box of clothes shows up on my doorstop, and I can never wait to just tear into it.  Sometimes I'm ecstatic about the pieces, sometimes I'm devastated.  I've had some awesome fixes, and some real real terrible ones.  Yet, I keep going back for more.  This was fairly good fix, with the keep item being in top my 5 favorite Stitch Fix items ever!  Here we go:

 BRIXON IVY Pinson Drape Cardigan
This photographs beautifully, let's start there.  I've seen it all over Pinterest and had been eyeing it.   The neutral colors are perfection!  Except it was much different in person than I was expecting.  Rather thin, short in the back, and just a bit "meh."  So I didn't keep it.


Loveappella Hannelius Crochet Detail Knit Top
Again, I feel like this photographs well, but I really hated it.  The body was loose fitting, but the arms super tight.  The knit is loose, so it's see through and requires an under layer.  I had asked for a warm weather fix, and this would not work for Spring or Summer in Utah at all.


Skies are Blue Emmitt Knit Maxi Dress
I loved this dress! It fit perfect, was actually a good length for a maxi, and the blue & whites stripes were so my style!  Unfortunately, It was a bit dressier than I was wanting a maxi to be.  I need it to be something I could wear to the park or out to playdates on a daily basis.  The fabric just made it a bit too fancy.  Plus the neckline wasn't stretchy, making it nearly impossible to nurse in.  But ladies... everyone needs this dress!!!


Skies are Blue Prime Tunic
I wasn't so sure about this when I pulled it out of the box, but once again, loved it!  It has some great length and would actually probably pair better with leggings.  It's also super flattering, so that's a big win.  However, plaid just doesn't yell Spring & Summer.  I knew this would sit in closet for months.  Come September, I'm sure I will regret sending this back, but I wanted to free up the closet space for the current months.


Loveappella Malbec Elbow Patch Knit Top
I love everything about this shirt.  The muted navy colors, the baseball tee style, the elbow patch, the super soft fabric (Loveappella stuff is always super soft)!  I will say that the arms are a tad short, but that didn't bother me.  I will probably have them slightly scrunched up most of the time anyways.  I have worn this way practically nonstop since it arrived!

Overall, a pretty darn good fix!  Stitch Fix keeps stringing me along.  I'm hoping my next fix will involve more summer pieces, because the warm weather is here to stay!  If I haven't convinced you to try this service, just once, do it!  Finally do it!  And use my referral link, because then you are helping my shopping addiction, and you'll get to keep seeing these obviously non-awkward fashion photos!

  2. Those first two pink tops looked gorgeous in you! I have the hardest time pulling off soft baby pinks. The stripes and elbow patches have me swooning!

  3. I think I saw you wearing that Loveappella shirt in previous pictures and I loved it!!! All Loveappella stuff that I've gotten is insanely soft (that dress I sent back was the same brand!). I need to pin this and tell my stylist to send it to me next time. Is it super heavy for winter? Or could it transition to spring?

  11. I love that last top! I almost asked you on IG where you got that when you posted a picture :) Good keep!! I need to start my boxes up again... post-pregnancy I just didn't fit into anything normal. Hopefully the summer boxes will be good!

  13. Baseball tees are my jam...and this one is so cute!!! Actually, it all looks great on you, but I understand you reasonings for sending all the others back. Glad you found something that would work though!!

  14. I agree about the cardigan, it does photograph well and looks great on you. But if you’re not feeling it…you’re just not feeling it. The elbow patch shirt is amazing. I think I might have seen this in one picture you posted previously? If not, it was an elbow patch shirt and I remembered loving it. I would have kept that one, too. Happy Friday sweet lady! Hope you have a good weekend.

  19. I feel like this was a HUGE improvement over your last few fixes. The colors are all so you! Other than the cardigan (which I just didn't love), I think all of them are amazing! That maxi looks great on you! And I love the detail top! But that top you kept is absolute perfection! I'm so glad they're moving in the right direction again for you!

  20. I LOVE the first two tops and I'm surprised you sent them back! ...although I know that things are always different in person than they are in a photo. The top you chose is perfect for everyday wear. Great fix!
