Oh, Stitch Fix, I can’t seem to quit you.
After a disappointing shipment in May, I was almost ready to break up with Stitch Fix for good.
And yet I didn’t.
When a new box arrived two weeks ago, I was cautiously optimistic.
This Fix contained a sleeveless shirt, a tee, a 3/4 sleeve shirt (hitting almost all of the shirt types!), a pair of jeans and – inexplicably for summer – a pair of suede booties.
Sidenote: Trixie (8) helped with the photography, so apologies in advance.
This 3/4 sleeve knit top was something I’d pinned, so I was happy to see it in my Fix.
Slightly blurry, but you get the gist:
I liked the pink pocket and trim. Keeper.
This tee was also something I’d pinned:
It’s a basic, thin white tee with embroidery. Here’s a close up of the writing:
I’m a sucker for inspirational tees. Another keeper. Unfortunately, the material is so thin that I noticed a tiny hole had already formed after being washed only a few times. I’m telling myself it adds character.
The sleeveless top was a sleeper hit.
The color is what makes this top. It doesn’t show well in the pictures, but it’s a muted blue-green, basically the color of an egg from a fancy chicken.
Here it is:
And on me:
Let me stop right here and confess that it took me two weeks to put this post together because I really hesitated about posting photos of myself without a drop of makeup and posing in my bathroom. This is the opposite of Fancy. I was excited about my Stitch Fix box and jumped into trying everything on when it arrived, and I did not stop to think about the visuals, so here we are.
I absolutely love the color of the shirt. In the pictures, I can see the fit is a bit blousy, but meh. I kept it.
The next thing in the box was yet another pair of skinny jeans.
I’m actually wearing them in the photos above. They were ok, but I really don’t need another pair of skinny jeans in July, so I sent them back.
Ditto these suede boots:
I like boots. I like suede. I like the caramel color. The fit was fine.
But I really didn’t need another pair of boots in July when I already have something very, very similar in my closet.
Summary: This Fix was definitely more successful than the last one. I kept all three of the tops and liked the other picks, but they weren’t right for the season.
And as I checked out, I saw that my next Fix is scheduled soon…
