Hooray! Time for my latest Stitch Fix review!
I mentioned in my note to Nicole(my fabulous and wonderful stylist) that #1 this was my birthday fix and #2 I was looking for pieces to wear this fall! I absolutely LOVED this box and kept it so long as I deliberated back and forth on what to keep that Stitch Fix sent me an email like….hey? So? Do you think you should probably check out soon?
Check it out!
I have been on the quest for a great pair of jeans to add to my closet for a while now. Pretty much all of my jeans are from high school(gasp!) or at the very least, definitely pre-Abigail. And while I can pat myself on the back for the ability to get them up and on, I can’t say that they are the most flattering for my post two kids, rapidly approaching 30 bod. Which is why I definitely needed to add some new jeans to my closet(andplusalso, I wear jeans literally every day) so I was excited to see that these were coming.
I waffled back and forth over these because they were just a little too tight in my waist. I’m super super paranoid about rocking a muffin top and so while they looked great with this flowy top(that came in fix #4) I just wasn’t sold. But I did really like them, so I decided to be brave and try out Stitch Fix’s new exchange program. I sized up one size and waited with bated breath that I made the right decision.
And I DID! Moving up one size was absolutely the right choice. They fit like a glove and I’m pretty sure I’m on like…day 4 in a row of wearing them. Stitch fix WIN!
I was pretty excited about this little number showing up in my box, but it turned out that that’s exactly what it was. Little.
I’m wearing a black tank top underneath it, so you can see just how short it was. Nicole and I have discussed what size I should put in my profile because all of the tops in my last few fixes have been SO BIG. Fortunately, the rest of the tops in this fix fit really well by moving down a size, but this was didn’t translate as well. Which was too bad! (But, yes, if I had REALLY been in love with it, I could have easily exchanged it for a bigger size!)
Y’all know about my current floral love affair. And so does my stylist Nicole!
This top was SO cute and such a Courtney piece!
Boy did I ever waffle back and forth over this top, but I ultimately decided that I have other similarly colored tops in my closet for fall and winter, so I sent it back. But I think I might regret it! Ah!
Another thing that I haven’t been shy about is my love for dolmans. I don’t know, there is just something about them that I love! And Nicole knows that too!
In my last Fix, she sent me one that I wasn’t crazy about. But the burgundy of this one was a TOTAL winner. It was also so soft!
Spoiler alert: These are the two items that I kept from this box. And I’ve already worn this outfit around town multiple times(plus shoes, obviously)
Honestly, I really loved this dress. I loved the color, I loved the elbow patches, I loved the stripes, I loved how it was casual and that I could wear it with leggings and boots and a scarf and be the quintessential basic fall you know what.
Trouble is, this dress was TIGHT. Like, whoa get me my spanx. And if I’m going to be wearing a casual basic girl dress, I don’t want to be rocking my spanx. So after some deliberation and time in front of the mirror, back it went.
Here is the breakdown for those of you curious about prices and such.
So, all in all a totally great fix! I loved this box and was so happy with it. I got to keep two GREAT items that I have already gotten a lot of use out of and already have my next box scheduled for early December! Hooray!
