The doorbell rang. The dog started to bark. My kids were both having an afternoon snack at the kitchen table. I peeked out the window and onto my front step. Tucked in between the flower pot and doorframe was a cardboard package with a teal emblem. Stitch Fix time!
I’ve mentioned in my previous posts how I no longer go clothes shopping. Stitch Fix now knows exactly what I like since I have used the service for just about a year now. My clothing choices are shipped to me. I get to try them on in my own home, mixing and matching pieces with clothing that I already own. Then, I send back anything that I don’t like.
This time, I was searching for a new top (or two) to add to my wardrobe. Something bright and colorful to add a little vibrance. Here’s what I got:
I love this blue! And the orange as well! The top was very flattering. The fabric was a little heavier than I expected, but that was a benefit. Overall, I decided not to keep this one. I have a lot of sleeveless blouses and I find I’m not choosing to wear them often. So, I sent it back.
Lovapella Dellen Chiffon Striped Thermal
I loved the contrast between the two fabrics in this shirt – a thermal on the top and a black chiffon trim on the bottom. I didn’t like the fit of this though. The picture above is after I pulled it down over my chest. Every time I bent over, the fabric would ride up on me and everything would accumulate under my armpits. I sent this back.
19 Cooper Blanchette Tie-Neck Peasant Blouse
Ohh.. the color. This emerald just made me feel so fancy and pretty. At first, I thought I would hate this peasant top. But once I put it on, it won me over. It’s so bright and spectacular! I have no color like it my wardrobe, so I kept it!
Honey Punch Gillian Striped Open Cardigan
This fabric was super cozy. It had that yarn-knit, homemade feel. However, the arms were a little odd. Do you see that seam halfway up my forearm? It’s where a typical shoulder seam would be. When I extended my arms to side, I got a little bat wing pose. The fit made me feel clumsy so I sent it back.
41Hawthorn Jace Dot Print Fit & Flare Dress
I definitely appreciate every body part I have. That said, there are certain areas I like to accentuate and some I prefer to minimize. My hips are one of those areas I like to downplay. This dress makes them very prominent. I love the texture though and the colorful is a beautiful blue. However, my hips don’t lie and I sent the dress back.
I only kept one piece of clothing from this Stitch Fix box which I consider a minor victory – both for my minimalist goals and my budgetary restraint. As always, this box was so much fun and most definitely beats taking a 1 year old shopping! Also, I love getting a surprise on my doorstep every month.
