Because I didn’t keep anything from my last box, I went ahead and scheduled another Fix a lot sooner than I typically do. I don’t do automatic boxes(though you have the option to schedule that!). Typically, I just request a box whenever we’re entering a new season or if I have a special occasion or event coming up. I’ve looked through my closet lately and while Stitch Fix has done an amazing job of filling out my wardrobe for fall and winter options, I’m severely lacking in my Spring/Summer department. (Unless I want to wear a tank top every day. And, since I don’t have an 18 year old body anymore….I don’t)
So anyway, for this box I requested to try some jeans again- but specifically none of that polyester/spandex stuff, and then some lovely spring tops. Possibly something that would photograph well for family photos in a few weeks. I also requested Nicole to be my stylist this time. Nicole follows me on Instagram and interacts with my page fairly often. I noticed in her bio a while back that she is a SF stylist, so I figured, what the heck! Let’s try it! And I’m so happy that I did!
This box is exactly the reason I love Stitch Fix so much. The customer service and personality you get with your experience is unlike any other shopping experience. I also love the unexpected quality of it. You never know exactly what you are going to get- and a lot of times(because I always peek at my shipment before it gets here) even if you think you’re going to just hate something, you get it home and you try it on with your things, and before you know if, you’re falling in love with a new item that you NEVER would have chosen for yourself. It’s really awesome!
Okay, so here are my five items for this Stitch Fix review! And I haven’t checked out yet because I’m still really deliberating over what to keep and what to send back- so help me out, mmkay?
So the first thing I tried on were these Mavi jeans. Nicole mentioned that these were a *bit* of a splurge, but that they are 100% cotton. So none of that cheap stretchy business is happening with these jeans. Which I love. But, because of that, I’m having a little bit of a muffin top situation in them. Not extreme….just in a like….if you lost five pounds these would be perfection kind of way. And, while I could stand to lose those five pounds, I also don’t really care enough at this time in my life to worry about it. So I’m not sure if the splurge is a good decision on jeans I may or may not fit into exactly perfectly….I don’t know. It’s a dilemma!
When I peeked at my fix I was not thrilled about this top. And I was not thrilled when I pulled it out of the box. But looking at it in these pictures? I actually kind of love it. I love how light and airy and springy it is. It is revealing without being form fitting. I’m kind of down with that. Pondering this one.
My friend, Laura, got this same shirt in a box of hers recently and absolutely HATED it. I remember her saying that the pattern reminded her of a Grandma. So, when I saw that it was coming in my shipment I couldn’t help but think, “aw, man!”
And then I pulled it out of the box.
At the risk of losing my solid (self given) PG rating on this blog- take a look at this print and let me know what you think it looks like.
Because, all I’m seeing are a bunch of white and purple man parts.
This picture says, “I can’t believe I’m being photographed in a penis shirt”
Jim says, “hey, at least Stitch Fix knows what you like.”
I say, “Thanks for the laugh, SF, but gonna deff be returning this one.”
The note about this cardigan was so, so sweet. Nicole mentioned that she knew Mabel’s birthday is coming up(aw! Right?!) and that she thought this top would be a really great option for our family pictures.
Once again, peeked, saw that it was blue, felt disappointed. Pulled it out of box, not a fan. Looking at it in these pictures? Kind of really like it! Nicole told me to pair it with a white tank, which I did, and it works great.
Abigail hopping into the picture at the end helps me envision the whole thing working.
When I peeked at this particular shirt I was confused because it seemed to be incredibly wintery to me. Dark, quilted, I also thought that it was long sleeved. But once I put this on, it is light weight, 3/4 length, and the floral is actually really bright and beautiful.
I really love this shirt!
At first I thought it was my favorite thing in this box, but now I’m not so sure!
Either way, after last box being such a dud, I’m SO glad that my rebound box was such a winner. Thank you, Nicole!
