Another month, another Stitch Fix box. This month I asked for more color, no bottoms, an infinity scarf, some plaid and comfy clothes. Comfy, I got. All my pieces are, well, comfortable. Soft and warm for fall.
They just weren't my style really. There was no plaid. *sad face* And, well, how do I say this? Sweaters have to be just right to flatter my chest. (There. That wasn't too scandalous was it?) And these really didn't do that. You know, flatter. Even Mac agreed. And Mac is very careful about agreeing with me when I say something doesn't look good.
If you don't know what Stitch Fix is, scroll to the bottom. You'll find all the info you need plus links to my other fixes.
First off, funny story. The blouse you see in this picture is called a "drop shoulder button back knit top." Now, you would think that means that the buttons should go in the back, right? Right? The tag is along the top edge of the side with the buttons. Another indication. When I put it on like this, Mac says "Are you sure that's right? Shouldn't the buttons go in the front?" Silly man. I know what I'm doing.
After wearing it around like that all day...I got home and found the style card. It shows the buttons in the front. Stupid Mac.
I'm still not convinced though. The sweater looks pretty good this way, right?
Joy. Hi. Here are my thoughts on the pieces that you (or some weird computer algorithm) put together for me.
1. 41HAWTHORN Jenee Pullover Sweater
Remember how I mentioned the whole "sweaters do weird things to my chest area" thing? Well, this is one of those. The reason that I'm in such a silly pose is that any other pose did...you guessed it...weird things to my chest. But it's super soft. And I like the colors. (I should do more of the above pose. It hurt my abs.)
2. DEE ELLE Brewer Drop Shoulder Button Back Knit Top
Of all the pieces, I liked this the most. I still didn't love it. And, honestly, except that I didn't want to lose my styling fee, I would have sent it back. However, apparently, it can be worn forwards or backward. At least that's what I'm telling myself. It's comfy. I'll enjoy it.
3. LOOK BY M Chloe Houndstooth Infinity Scarf
I asked for a scarf and I got one. The material was soft, granted. It was too bulky though. And in the end I just didn't think I would wear it.
4. DEE ELLE Auriga Cowl Neck Waffle Knit Top
Again, the sweater/chest problem. This is the only pose you're getting because otherwise I was not happy with the way the sweater draped. And the side slits were strangely high. In jeans, my muffin top showed. Not good, Joy. Not good.
5. CRESCENT Cassington French Terry Wool Boyfriend Blazer
After putting this outfit together, I almost emailed and asked if I could keep this piece too. It's very comfy, but the style is a little too, something. In the end though, the sleeves were too tight and for what it cost, I didn't love it.
So. All in all, not the best fix. It's ok though. Can't hit it out of the park every time. I'll get another one in three weeks and up until then, the anticipation will build. It's that anticipation which is half the fun of Stitch Fix. Just waiting to see what some random person will find for you next. I love it.
Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. Head over to the website and create a style profile. There is a questionnaire asking about elements of style that you like or don't like. You can link to a Pinterest board of styles you are interested in (which I highly recommend). You can even leave personal notes for your stylist. For instance, I included some of my favorite colors and my measurements. Once you get all that info in, you go onto a list and your "FIX" is scheduled. There is a $20 styling fee which will be applied to anything you purchase. You will receive 5 items in each box and you can keep all or none. If you keep all five items, you get a 25% discount on everything. Shipping is free both ways. Boxes are scheduled to your desire, as often as you like. From other reviews that I have read and the couple of interactions I have had with them, the customer service is pretty great. If you have a problem with your stylist, need a different size or notice damage to clothing, they are good about rectifying those issues.
If you, the reader, decide to try out the service, this link does allow me to get a $25 credit. Which is nice for me, I admit. Just in case you were wondering, the prices in this fix ranged from $28-$78.
