Last week I received my second "Fix" from Stitch Fix. I had provided really detailed feedback on my last fix so was excited to see how this one would turn out. Here is what I got!
Items #1 and #2 - Top and Cropped Pants
The first thing I saw when I opened the box from Stitch Fix was some red pants. I was excited as I love bright cropped pants. I tried them on with a patterned top that they had sent me.
You can't tell in this photo, but unfortunately the pants did not fit me. They were already a little bit loose in the waist and butt areas and I could tell they would likely stretch a bit so as much as I really loved them, I had to send them back. But - I love the top and it fit great so I am keeping it! I can see myself pairing it with cropped pants, jeans, or a pencil skirt so it's going to be a versatile piece for my wardrobe.
Item #3 - Tank Top
I saw that they once again sent me something with stripes which I was excited about...
But I wasn't crazy about the side panels which makes it flare out a bit. I prefer more tailored looks so this was a bit of a miss for me. Plus it's pretty casual and not really something I could see myself wearing to work so I opted to send it back. I have a hard time spending money on clothes that I can't wear to work.
Item #4 - Cardigan
I heart cardigans and can never seem to have too many of them as I love layered looks (and am perpetually cold) so I was happy to see a cardigan in my fix.
This cardigan was super comfy, but I ended up sending it back because the price point was too high for the style/fabric in my opinion. I feel like most of what I have received from Stitch Fix is reasonably priced, but this cardigan was $78 which is just way too much for me to spend on a casual, cotton cardigan.
Item #5 - Dress
When I pulled this dress out of the box my immediate reaction was a solid two thumbs down due to the pattern...
After trying it on, I actually liked it more than I thought I would. But I did not love it. I think if I was in a situation where I liked everything else, I would have kept this dress to get the 25% off of my total order. But, I was sending other things back so the verdict was to all send this back. Plus I felt the price point ($148) was too high for a thin, jersey-type fabric dress. I spend a fraction of that on the dresses that I get at Banana Republic which are made from a sturdier fabric.
So all in all, I once again only kept 1 item - but I really like the one item I kept. I would have kept the red pants if they had fit better and there wasn't anything I strongly disliked in this fix so I feel like my stylist is getting better.
My plan is to do at least 2 more fixes to see if I start to keep more things. But even if I just keep one item/fix, it's actually worth it for me as it will allow me to slowly build my wardrobe over time.
