Stitch Fix #12

Hello friends! Its that time again… that magical day when a little brown box appears on my doorstep containing items chosen just for me by some random lady in California. That’s right, kids. Its Stitch Fix day.
I am going to be taking a short hiatus from SF after this one. As of today at 2:38 pm I officially have enough summer clothes… and my wallet has taken a beating lately. So, I scheduled my next fix for the end of August (just in time for back to school!) and after that I’ll be getting fixes every other month. It just seems more responsible.

This was a great fix. For some reason they swapped out my stylist for this one (I’ve had Melanie for 8 of my past 11 fixes) and a sassy gal named Jennifer clearly perused my Pinterest page when she put together my box. I kept three, but I could have made a case for the two shirts that I sent back. I asked for cute sleeveless tops. I’m always in a sleeveless shirt – even during the winter – so these will be year round items for me. I also asked for maxi dresses/skirts, but I suppose they didn’t have any in my price range this time around (aka the cheaper the better)
The first top that they send me is this cobalt/royal blue top. I LOVE this shirt. It is a flattering fit. I love the side details, and I especially enjoy that they included a bonus nude cami to wear beneath it for those days when I don’t want to feel like a prostitute. I was having a fat day until I saw these photos. LOVE this top. Keeper.

This second top was just ok. I kinda liked it better untied, as you can see in some of the photos, but it was just mediocre for me, so it went back.

PS – these shorts, from LOFT, got sent back, too. Hello Thunder Thighs.

This might be the shirt I’ve been looking for my whole life. It is my shirt soul mate. We said vows to each other in my closet last night with Clodette as witness, and now we’re joined for life. This is a favorite color of mine, and the fit is sensational. Keeper.

I wanted to love this shirt. I had it pinned about 19 times on my SF board, but in person it fell short. It was, again, just ok. It was green and pink. Maybe if they would’ve sent the blue/yellow or blue/orange version I woudl have liked it more, but it just didn’t tickle my fancy.

As you can see on my face, I was unsure about this top. Its funky, and I like that, but the weird side flaps threw me for a loop. In the end, Tom loved it, my mom loved it, and in a random poll of 11 friends, more than 1/2 liked it. So, I kept it. I’m actually wearing it right now and I’m glad I did. I already received 4 compliments on it today, and its hiding my post-cruise fat belly pretty well. Keeper.

In all, this fix was one of my favorites. I love having different items. I feel like 79 other girls have the same exact top as me when I purchase one at Loft, and Stitch Fix solves this issue. Give it a try!
