Finally, a day late, fix #10 arrived! We are leaving for Disney on Thursday so I wanted to try to get in one more fix before our trip. In my note I requested distressed skinny jeans and anything in the colors burgundy, mustard, teal, or purple. I have had Jaycie since fix #1 so I usually just let her do her thing and send me whatever, but every now and then if I am really wanting something I will throw that in my note. However, I am never disappointed if it doesn’t arrive! That’s just not what Stitch Fix is for… If you have an entire list of wants, then you might as well just go shop for yourself.
On to my fix… I was beyond excited to see that she was able to get me the distressed skinnies I asked for. They are the Just Black Riley Distressed Skinny Jean ($78). I have the white distressed skinnies by Just Black and I LOVE THEM. I knew without even trying these on that I would like them and I was correct. Super soft, just enough stretch, and the right amount of distressing. Thank you, Jaycie!
First, I tried on the Market & Spruce Dora Lace Shoulder V-Neck Blouse ($68) with the jeans. Actually, that’s all I have on in the pictures… I just never took them off! Initially I didn’t think I would care for it too much, but I really like it. I think it would be great for a date night with black skinnies or some Margaret M pants.
The lace detail on the shoulders is so pretty and feminine! This top is staying with me.
Next I tried on the Market & Spruce Sawyer Space Dye Dolman Sleeve Knit Top ($58). Straight out of the box I loved how soft and stretchy it was and it fulfilled my burgundy color request. However, once I got it on I knew it was going back. Unfortunately it does nothing for my figure and actually accentuates the mommy muffin top I have going on.
See what I mean?! Yuck! Who wants to look at that? Sorry Sawyer, you have to go back!
Next is the Daniel Rainn Coronado Crochet Detail Top ($74). I love the color of this and initially I thought about keeping it, but I really have so many tops like this already that I just don’t need it. As much as I liked the color, it also didn’t really flatter me as much as I would have liked.
It’s pretty sheer, so it comes with a matching cami to wear underneath as well.
Lastly is the RD Style Janee Cowl Neck Side Split Pullover ($78). Holy itchiness, Batman! I usually don’t mind sweaters and don’t ever have a problem with itching, but the 5 minutes I had this on to take a photo and see if I liked it I was clawing at my neck. Aside from the itching, it has a split that is way too high for me. It’s about 12″ long and goes up past my waistband. Not a pretty sight, even with a cami on underneath!
Overall, I am keeping 2 items and I am completely happy with that! Jaycie always does a great job at reading my note, checking out my Pinterest, and even reading my blog. Taking photos of myself in the clothes not only is a great idea for a blog post, but it really helps me see myself in the items more-so than looking in a mirror. I will think I really like an item but look at the photo and completely change my mind! So be sure to get photos of yourself in your clothes so you can see how you look in them. You can always use a timer if you don’t have anyone to take them for you.
To see all the items I’ve kept from previous fixes you can visit my Pinterest board here. If you’re new to my blog, you might be wondering… What is Stitch Fix? Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service that will send you 5 pieces in a box. You pay a $20 styling fee up front in order for a stylist to choose pieces for you. Once the box arrives you can try everything on then choose what to keep. There is a 25% discount for keeping all 5 pieces. Before you get started there is a style profile you fill out so your stylist can know your preferences. You can choose to receive no jewelry like I have, or you can leave all the options open and receive clothes, jewelry, and/or an accessory each time. You can set up automatic shipments as frequently as every 2-3 weeks, or you can choose to do manual shipments and tell Stitch Fix when you’d like to receive a box. They also have a referral system where you can receive a $25 credit for every person who signs up through your link and purchases a fix. So really, even if you hate everything in the box, which I highly doubt you will, you’re only out $20. You can ship everything back with a prepaid envelope and choose whether to get another fix next month. If you leave detailed feedback about your items, keep your style profile updated, make a note about any upcoming special occasions or vacations, and link to your Pinterest, you’re bound to have a great fix!
