Anyway, in early May I decided it was time for another box! I signed up for the end of May and thought it'd be a perfect You-Made-It-Through-the-School-Year-Happy Summer-to-Myself gift.
And then I made the mistake of going to Target a few days before my box was to be shipped. Since we don't live three blocks away anymore and I don't make it to Target often (and I was there by myself), let's just say I was in Target heaven. And of course, they had racks and racks of clearance clothing and a whole clothing department full of other cutesy summery stuff. I left with a handful of tops, a few pairs of shorts, and a pair of wedge heals. No big deal--I decided I'd go home and cancel my upcoming Stitch Fix. I tried to do just that the moment I got home, but of course, my fix was already "in progress" so I was unable to cancel it. Still not a big deal, I figured the box would be another dud and I wouldn't mind shipping four of the five items back.
And then I got my box.
And whatdoyouknow--it wasn't a dud. In fact, it was the opposite. I love everything. Literally, e v e r y t h i n g. Murphy's Law, right?
Here's what I got!
Item #1 | Market & Spruce Colibri Henley Top
A sleeveless, plaid top that could be worn casually with shorts this summer or as a nice work top with a pencil skirt this fall. I do like it, but after trying on the other items, this is probably my least favorite of the bunch. It has a bit of a maternity feel to it. I think if it was one size smaller, perhaps it wouldn't feel that way. It's also really long in the back. Like if looks as if I'm not wearing shorts/pants. So I like it, but it'll probably go back.
Item #2 | THML Chenny Embroidery Detail Knit Tank
When I first signed up for Stitch Fix after seeing some cute pieces on Jana's blog, this is what I had envisioned. Adorable and unique things like this! Perhaps my all-time favorite item from Stitch Fix right here! I love everything about this - the fit, the stripes, the detail. Keeper, fo sho.
Item #3 | Skies Are Blue Haleiwa Tie-Neck Top
Another all-time fave! I love the floral pattern and the fit. (Maybe it's just summer clothes that I love??) I have nothing bad to say about this top. It's adorbs. Another keeper.
Item #4 | Colourworks Laudry Split Back Knit Top
I really like the loose fit of this, and the color, and the look of it from the front, but the back?? I can't decide. It's super long and makes me look like I'm sans pants (again). I like it with these shorts, but perhaps it would be a good look with leggings. What do you think? Keeper or no?
Item #5 | Zad Milena Floral Crescent Necklace
I'm a sucker for necklaces. Especially ones that are teal. So it goes without saying that I love this. But probably not as much as I love the tops? So it may get shipped back.
If I keep everything, the cost would be $136 (because of the 25% off "buy all discount".) Not bad, really! But that's after already spending over $100 at Target the other day and I normally don't spend that amount of money on clothing in such a short amount of time. If I send back the plaid sleeveless and necklace, the total is $116 (seems silly). If I keep only my two favorite tops, it'd be $82. Ahhh I can't decide! Someone please tell me what to do!
Seriously though--input? I'm definitely keeping the striped and floral tanks since they are my favorite items to date!!
On a side note, you like the new selfie mirror?! When we first found the house and I saw that mirror, all I could think was "Perfect place for Stitch Fix selfies!" #loseriknow
And the shorts? Those are one of my Target purchases. They are high-wasted with some embroidered lace on the side. I think they are cute, flattering, and best of all, comfy! They are not going back either, but perhaps I'll reconsider a few of the other Target purchases to justify keeping my entire SF box. Decisions, decisions...
