Happy Anniversary Stitch Fix! We’ve been together for 1 year and I couldn’t be happier. To celebrate, you sent me one of the best boxes yet! Yep, another 5/5 keeper. I’ve made plenty of requests over the months, pinned specific things that I wanted you to send, and you’ve always delivered. This month was no exception. I asked for light wash denim- got it. I asked for a very specific cardigan- got it. Last month I asked for a specific top that I had pinned- wasn’t available last month so I got it this month. There was a pair of shorts you sent several fixes ago that I loved but were too big, so you sent them to me in a smaller size. Seriously, you rock Stitch Fix. I think we should stay together.
Item #1 and #2 : Brook Dot Print Tie-Waist Top (Pixley) and Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino Short (Dear John)
First, the top: I requested this after I saw someone post it on their instagram. I’ve been really into polka dots lately and thought this was kind of adorable, especially with the tie-waist. I knew I had to have it. So I basically begged my stylist to find it and send it to me immediately. It wasn’t available last month but I got it this month! It lived up to my expectations. It fits. It’s versatile- being black and white it can be dressed up or down, and worn with any color bottom you want! It’s sleeveless so great for summer, but can also be worn with a cardigan. Absolute keeper.
Next, the shorts: I received these a few fixes ago and they were too big. I let them know that this particular brand (Dear John) seems to run big on me so they made a note to send me a smaller size and here they are! A different color than last time but I don’t care. I really like these! Obviously the smaller size fits much better this time around, the color is very spring and summery and I certainly don’t have anything like it. In fact, besides athletic shorts, these are now the only pair of shorts I own that fit me. So I’ll be getting a lot use out of them! Keep.
Item #3: Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan (Pixley)
I requested this specific cardigan because I haven’t been having very good luck with what they’ve sent me in the past. I saw this on another Stitch Fix reviewer, in hot pink, and it looked fantastic on her. Also, as my stylist pointed out in her note to me, I was sent this before in white (in my very first fix a year ago) but wasn’t crazy about it, pretty sure it was too big and I generally avoid a lot of white because of the kids. Anyway, it’s a bit wrinkly right out of the box so it’s not photographing well. BUT it is a very soft, light-weight material and black color makes it pretty versatile. I don’t currently own a black cardigan, which is a closet staple in my opinion. It looks a little better with the outfit below. And it’s not too expensive so it’s definitely worth keeping. Also…POCKETS.
Item #4 and #5 (and #3 again): Marlow Crochet Back Detail Top (19 Cooper) and Lillian Crop Skinny Jean (Level 99)
I’ll start with the top: LOVE the color and crochet detail you’ll see below. But when I first put it on I thought “ugh! not another floaty top!!” It is indeed floaty. I typically do NOT like that and always send them back. But for some reason..I was kind of digging this one. And the more I looked at it, and the pictures, the more I like it.
And finally, the jeans. I requested light-wash denim (because its the only wash I don’t have and I really like it for summer). These jeans are the most expensive item they’ve ever sent me. But dangit…they do jeans right. Seriously. The best fitting jeans I’ve ever owned are from Stitch Fix, and these are, once again, amazing. Just like the others I’ve kept. They’re ridiculously soft. High quality. Fit perfectly. And definitely worth keeping since I like everything else in the box and will get the “buy 5″ discount! I wear my Stitch Fix jeans all the time, so again…”price per wear!!” 🙂
