I don’t know if my knee jerk reaction to this box is because it’s outside of my normal color palette or because I’m not feeling like spending money this month or because I’m feeling fat because I’ve put on a few pounds since weaning Harvey, but whatever it is, I’m not loving this box. I’m curious if you guys will agree with me or not. So far my first fix was my favorite (I loved 4 of 5 items), so I’m going to mention that to them in my review this month to see if they can get back towards that direction a bit for me!
FYI – I’m typing this post up quickly at work because the hard drive of my computer crashed last week, so the photos were quick iPhone pics put into frames with an app. Gah. I hate computer issues! I have to “check out” by Thursday, so I’m interested in your opinions asap again. Thanks! 🙂
First I pulled on the Trinidad Chevron Print Henley Top (41 Hawthorn – $48). It’s a different cut than I normally wear, but I actually liked the chevron pattern and aqua/teal color (it photographed kind of blue, but it’s more teal). It would make a good semi-casual work shirt with either jeans or slacks. I also put on the necklace in the last shot below – Trisha Clover Charm Layering Necklace (Bancroft – $32).
Next I pulled on the Beckett Graphic Print V-Neck Blouse (41 Hawthorn – $48). I see now that they’re the same brand, and I could definitely tell. Same fabric and draping. Not my favorite, but it actually photographed better than I felt it looked in person. I wish they’d have given me a different brand instead of 2 of the same though.
Then I pulled on the Giovanni Straight Leg Jean (Level 99 – $98). My stylist picked them for the length, and they were actually much better length than the pair they sent last month, but thanks to a few extra pounds of pudge from weaning Harvey, I felt like a sausage in them. They also keep sending me jeans with 30″ waists instead of 31″ like my profile says. Maybe I just need to stick to boot cut & boyfriend jeans for summer? I like skinnys well enough with boots, but proportionally I just don’t think they do anything for me with flats. What do you think?
I also pulled on the final item with this outfit, the Pinson Drape Cardigan (Brixon Ivy – $54). I liked this cardigan just fine – it was comfortable and (I think?) flattering, but I’m not sure it’s worth $54.
So there you go – Box #4. Do you guys think I should keep anything in this box? I’m keeping one thing max because of finances, so tell me your pick below! I’m still loving the service as a concept, even if this box wasn’t my favorite. I think I need to tinker with my style profile a bit in order to give them better feedback and work on feeling better in my body again, and both of those things should help with next month’s box. 🙂 Thanks to everyone who signed up through my link below – it helps me pay for the monthly stylist fee which goes towards my purchase if I keep anything!
*We both get $10 to spend at ThredUp if you use my link to sign up.
*I get a $25 credit if you sign up for a Stitch Fix box through my link. Signing up does NOT mean you have to schedule a box right away. You can look around and get a feel for it. If you do ship a box, then I get a credit, and if you refer anyone, the same applies to you!
After reading through your comments, I decided to keep the cardigan. It’s more versatile in my wardrobe to layer for work or date nights, I don’t have anything like it, and it was definitely flattering. Thanks again for all the input!
