Stitch Fix #7

It's been an entire year since I tried Stitch Fix for the first time, and a couple of weeks ago, I received my seventh box.  I am not signed up for regular shipments, but I average one fix about every other month.  I suppose I could sign up for recurring shipments, but I'm too much of a control freak and I like picking my days.

Anyway, for this box, I was pretty specific about what I wanted.  I created a new Pinterest board with some of my favorite fall trends.  I noted that I like those sweater-type shirts that appear to have a shirt underneath and I also asked for a skirt, a pair of jeans, and a blazer.  I also requested the same stylist I had in May (which I didn't get).  I'm always super excited about fall fashion and I had high hopes of getting a box full of winners.

Item #1 | Tart Milla Crew Neck Knit Top
First up was this striped tee.  It was cute, super soft, and with just the right amount of stretch.  It could be paired with jeans for a more casual look or black pants for work.  This is totally me - the stripes and all - and I debated and debated about it.  But low and behold, it got sent back.  I just couldn't justify the price ($58), especially when I have a sweater with similar black and white stripes.  (I've since regretted my decision...)

Item #2 | Dahlya Jannet Chiffon Back Sweater
I suspect they sent me this based on my Pinterest board.  It was right up the alley with a few sweaters I had pinned.  And I wanted so badly to like this.  But it just didn't fit right.  It was too wide, a little shorter than I'd prefer, and very boxy-looking on me.  I looooved the back of it...if only it fit better.

Item #3 | Kensie Rebekah Contrast Detail Blazer
I specifically asked for a blazer in this fix.  I had seen some on another blog and I thought they were super cute.  However, it's probably not something I would ever shop for/pick out myself.  The one they sent with alright.  It was fun to try, but with my job as a teacher, maybe just a little too formal.  Perhaps a different color...or something with a pattern...or maybe scalloped edges...and I might have kept it?? 

Item #4 | Mavi Sonja Boyfriend Jeans
I specifically asked for a pair of jeans, as well.  I haven't purchased a nice pair of jeans in 5(?) years and the ones I wear all the time are from Target, so needless to say, I was overdue for a new {good} pair.  I didn't bother saying 'no boyfriend jeans' because they had previously sent me a pair that I hated and I figured that was noted in my profile.  So you can imagine my disappointment when I pulled out another pair.  I will admit, they weren't nearly as bad as the first pair I received last fall.  These actually fit me instead of being three sizes too big.  And I do think they look semi-cute in these pictures, but I just couldn't do it.  My body is curvy so you'd think these would flatter my wider than average hips...but in my opinion, they just don't! 

Item #5 | Pixley Tenille Mini Skirt
I also asked for a work-appropriate skirt in this fix.  Work is always more fun when you have some new things to wear. ;)  I loved this skirt the moment I pulled it out of the box, but I was nervous about the word 'mini'.  Luckily, there wasn't much 'mini' about it--it fit perfectly and it is so comfortable!  Definitely the winner of this box and the only keeper.  One of the reasons I like Stitch Fix is the styling cards they include with each fix.  The skirt styling card suggested pairing it with an orange top, which I never would have done on my own!  But how cute is it with the top below??

I'm still a little bummed about not keeping the black and white top.  But one of the reasons I decided to send it back is so I could request another box sooner than later.  I scheduled another box the first week of October and I've request ALL jeans.  Hoping for one or two great pairs!  Stay tuned...
