I know it has only been 3 weeks since my last Stitch Fix post, but I moved this box up just because I was hoping for one more awesome new item to bring on vacation with me next weekend. This fix wasn’t a 5/5 for me by any means, but it was way better than my last one and I’m very appreciative how much more time this stylist seems to have spent on my box. My goal with each fix is to find one item that I totally love – anything beyond that I consider icing on the cake. I’m excited to hear what you guys think!

May Pink (Nalia Knot Front Knit Top – $38)
This was the first top I pulled on, and I can’t decide what I think about it. It’s super comfortable, and I suppose the front knots must be trendy again, though it just makes me think of jr. high in the 90s. Am I the only one who thinks that? Also, does it bag weird at my already poochy belly area? – DEBATING
Kut From the Kloth (Kate Boyfriend Jean – $78)
KFTK is definitely a big brand in the SF world, and I really like their pants. I know a lot of people tend to size down though, and I see why. Both pairs I’ve gotten have fit great, but they have a little stretch in them and get baggy pretty quickly. Honestly, I wore these pants on Saturday morning and kept them on long enough that I decided these are for sure going to be kept. I washed them and dried them (which I don’t normally do with jeans because of length considerations) in hopes of shrinking them a bit. When I first pulled these on I thought “meh” – the leg style does nothing for me. Then I looked at the style card and realized most people cuff the bottom of boyfriend jeans, and bam! MUCH better. I can dress these up with low heels and a nice shirt for work or dress down with flip flops and a simple tee on the weekend. – KEPT
Le Lis (Manuel Lace Detail Knit Top – $44)
Um, nope. I wanted to like this shirt, I really did, but it’s horribly unflattering on my midsection and just drapes oddly on my torso in general. I loved the lace detail on the back and shoulders, but as a whole the shirt just didn’t work for me. No thanks. – RETURNED
Gilli (Gabbiey Sleeveless Maxi Dress – $74)
I pulled this dress out and was SO excited to try it on. The fabric was so soft and smooth and I loved the cut and the low v-neck in the front… but thanks to two children and too many beers lately, this dress unfortunately does me no favors in the belly area. I’d love it if I was actually pregnant or newly postpartum, but with a 16 month old I don’t love that I look pregnant in the dress, so this is going to have to be a return. Points to my stylist for sending me something right up my alley style-wise. It’s not her fault I have issues sticking to my workout plan. 😉 I’m going to remind them that I really don’t want dresses in my fixes though – they just tend to be a higher price point and I don’t have much desire or opportunity to wear them, so I’d rather have more tops that can be dressed up or down for work or play. Also, this was a little short for me (I’m 5’8″) and for that much money I’d want the length to be perfect as well. – RETURNED
Renee C (Jordi Ikat Print Maxi Skirt – $58)
I’ve honestly never owned a long maxi skirt, but I kind of love this one. My stylist mentioned that it’d be great for summer music festivals (which we go to every Thursday night in June and July here), and she’s totally right. Thoughts? Nice enough to keep at that price point? It’s dry clean only (ICK, does anyone have tips for how to wash a dry clean only item at home?) but SO comfy. The entire time I was wearing it Stella told me over and over how beautiful it was and how much she loved it. It definitely made me like it a little more. 😉 What do you think? – DEBATING
So there you go! After my disaster of a fix last month, I was very happy with how much my stylist paid attention to my feedback and preferences this time. Their customer service was phenomenal when I reached out with my concerns, and it really seems like they made an effort to hit the mark for me. I don’t expect every fix to be perfect, but I do like that they push me outside of my comfort zone a bit and that bit by bit I’m building a nicer wardrobe for myself.
