It's June and time for my 2nd Stitch Fix Unboxing!!!!!! This is probably my new favorite blog post. I was looking forward to my next Stitch Fix box after my first go-around in May. I'd kept 1 of 5 items, and had some regret about sending some of the more expensive pieces home. This time, I was even happier with what came in my box and almost considered keeping everything in it. Money did come into play, however, so I had to make choices based on my absolute favorites that would get the most use.
Let's check it out, shall we? This time, I will post a pic of me wearing one of the items. I had to do self-photography, so I edited out a lot of 'junk' that comes from selfies.
I'd asked my stylist to please, please, please send me more maxi skirts and maxi dresses. I only have one maxi skirt in my wardrobe and no dresses at all..which is a crime because I am tall (5'9"+) so maxis work well for me. So those were my main requests for this Stitch Fix, and I think my new stylist did such a fantastic job (Shay, you are awesome!) that I will ask for her to do my styling again.
The box arrived at 10 am this morning. Thank goodness I work from home. I opened it up with much anticipation. The envelope on top contains the style card and price sheet...I didn't want to spoil the surprise by looking at the style cards, so I broke the seal and opened up my Fix!
Then, I laid everything out on my bed to take in all the colors and prints. Squee!!!!! I was so happy to see a variety of prints in this fix. Last time, my stylist only sent me striped items. The colors were vibrant and right up my alley. I had received: 1 maxi dress, 1 maxi skirt, 1 knee-length skirt, 1 tank top, 1 tab sleeve top.
Let's discuss each item.
1. The first item I noticed was the maxi dress. It was by La Made - Perry Mix Striped Crossfront Racerback Maxi Dress. The cost is $118. I think I set my max for dresses around $125, because I want good quality dresses that I can rewear and that price point was okay with me. When I tried it on, I was in love. So flattering! It is blue striped with a heather brown background and has a side slit up a few inches above my knee. It also comes with a mini-slip piece underneath to keep the unmentionables from showing through the fabric. I appreciated the mini-slip after my last maxi dress from Stitch Fix, which was cute, but too see-through for me. The crossfront doesn't go too low, which is nice, and I feel like everything will stay where it is supposed to due to the construction of the dress. Loved it and know I will wear it a lot, so the price was cool with me. KEEP.
NOTE: Once the maxi skirt became a 'no,' I moved the swing skirt out of the 'maybe' into the 'no' pile as well. No discount; no point in keeping the skirt that I wasn't totally loving.
So out of my box of 5 items, I am keeping 3. I think that is a very good score for my 2nd Stitch Fix box! If you are interested in trying out the Stitch Fix service for yourself, you can use this link and I can get some credit:

Now the countdown begins for my July shipment!
UPDATE: Just wanted to share how much I am loving the Breyson Split-Neck Tab-Sleeve Knit Top by 41Hawthorne. I have had this top for about 3 weeks and have worn it 4 times. Love, love, love! It is my favorite Stitch Fix item by far and probably a favorite in my wardrobe as a whole. I told my husband that it makes me feel like I am wearing pajamas. Something about the fabric and the fit, I think.
