Anna June looked at me a little crazy when I was excited for my Stitch Fix box.
I was excited despite only keeping one of the 5 things in my last box.
I shouldn't have been so excited.
Evidently, my stylist who I felt really understood the types of things I liked, Michelle, has been replaced with Heidi, who still gets me, but not as much.
Granted, I have a LOT of restrictions. I am way pickier than most people, and I realize that. That is why I signed up for the service: so someone else would have to try to find something for me to wear, because I clearly make myself crazy with all my lists of preferences. Here's my review of what was in my box.
Let's start with the first piece, the "Margaret M Emer High Waisted Trouser." I looked at these with trepidation, considering the last pants were too small, but they actually fit! They looked good, too! But they were $98. If I'm going to pay $98 for pants, they better cover up my entire leg. Also, they have to be able to go in the dryer, and these could not. Sending back. However, it does make me want to look in to the ankle pants trend again, even though so far I haven't found any to be super flattering.
The second piece is the "Crescent Wameda Crochet Hem Top" I really liked this color and that it was kind of flow-y, so it hid a lot of flaws. But it was $54, so I decided to skip it. Also - could not go in the dryer. Sending back.
The third piece was the "Loveappella Nelli Knit Top" also at $54.
I tried it on here with the black pants, which I obviously wouldn't wear with them. I like navy, and I liked the gray details - it would probably look OK with blue or gray jeans. But it also could not go in the dryer, and it just wasn't doing me any favors. Sending back.
The fourth piece was the "Papermoon Kasidy Geo Print Skirt" for $58. It was adorable, but I couldn't get it on. Sending back. Didn't even photograph. But it does make me think I need a skirt in an interesting print.
The fifth piece was the "Crescent Patton Cut Out Back Top."
But the real reason to keep it is the back:
Cons - it can't go in the dryer! I will try to remember to wash it carefully and hang it to dry. It is just so hard, though. It was $48, so it was the cheapest thing in the box. Also, if I didn't keep SOMETHING then I would lose my $20 styling fee. So, this was the best outcome of the box.
I will keep leaving feedback that busy moms like to dump clothes in the washer and dryer, and not have to take special care of things. In the meantime, I will try to pin things that are more like what I will actually wear in my real life so my stylist, whomever he/she is, will know that I'm trying to be as stylish as possible while still being practical.
If I haven't scared you off and you want to try Stitch Fix, here is my referral link. If you have an order shipped to you, I get a credit. In case it wasn't clear, this is not a sponsored post, and all opinions are mine. :)
