I mentioned in my last Stitch Fix post that Stitch Fix has done an amazing job filling out my Fall and Winter wardrobe, but that I am still very much on the hunt for warm weather things to update my closet with. I put in my note this time around that I would like to try a pair of shorts and that I would like some summery tops that I can wear a regular bra in(still nursing! no strapless/cami/whatever it is the kids are wearing these days). And oh did my sweet stylist, Nicole, ever come through for me! I always peek when my box ships, but I could only find 2 of the 5 items that were headed my way, so it was really exciting to find out what I was getting in this box! So here it is, Stitch Fix Review #13!
Look at her. That Nicole. Isn’t she the best?
So I have lots of things to say about these two items!
First up, the shorts. I love these shorts. Love, love, love them. They are a fantastic quality and once again, Stitch Fix has the magical ability to send me pants that fit like a glove. Like really, I’m convinced that it is magic. The length and fit of these shorts are absolutely perfect.
That being said, I have two reservations. The blue color and the pockets. Honestly, I love the blue, I’m just not sure how much use I’d get out of them. Like, what do you pair with bright blue other than…white? Nicole suggested that I pair this shirt with these shorts, but paired together I’m not really feeling it. I think if I could have these shorts in a more traditional color- white? Black? Denim? I would wear the heck out of them.
Secondly, the top. This was one of the items I was able to sneak a peek of before it arrived and I was super excited because I’m totally basic like that. Lace + gray? Yes, please! But, to be honest, I do not love this shirt. What I was most excited about ended up being the shirt I was least happy with.
I don’t like how it fits me, it seems kind of huge? And I’m not a big fan of how the lace isn’t completely attached to the shirt either.
This shirt is absolutely beautiful and I just love it. I love the print, I love the style, I love the color. Nicole suggested pairing it with my mint pants and HELLO LOVER this shirt got even more beautiful. The problem? Once again, it’s kind of huge on me(Thanks, Stitch Fix for unintentionally boosting my ego by sending me clothes that are too big). But really, as you can see in the top picture, you can see my bra right through the arm holes. And I guess some people are into that? I’m not really.
I don’t know if sizing down would fix the issue or if the cut of this shirt is what the problem is, but I’m really sad about it because I want this shirt to be mine!
Overlook the wrinkles and see the cute shirt instead! I love this color, I love the details on the sleeves, I love the back of this shirt.
Buttttt, once again, huge? Like, I get that it is supposed to be flowy, and I’m actually good with that. It is different than what I normally wear because I usually gravitate toward more fitted, but I’m trying to break free of that because I really love pizza and burrito bowls and flowy tops seem to be a fantastic solution to that. But this one just seemed extra big on me. Maybe it’s just me though?
Lastly, this beautiful pink and lace top. I love this one too. The color is beautiful, the lace is lovely, and hooray! It isn’t enormous on me like the other shirts in this box! I’m thinking that this top is my favorite out of the whole box.
And that’s it for Stitch Fix Review #13! I am still so crazy in love with this service and I recommend it to everyone who is looking for a fun way to refresh their wardrobe. Is it the cheapest and thriftiest way to do it? No, it isn’t. So if that is what you are looking for, Stitch Fix isn’t for you. But if you are motivated by convenience(having someone pick out your clothes for you, having them hand delivered to your door step, trying them on in your own home with your own things, and with a prepaid envelope to send back without ever having to leave your house), the fun surprise of having someone choose special and unique items just for you, and having clothes that no one else around you has, then definitely give Stitch Fix a try. I have had a few friends ask me for SF advice recently and I was able to convince them to give it a try. And guess what? They love it just as much as I do!
