|Is that a bit of bright orange/red in my box?|
But that's enough about my Stitch Fix obsession. Let's get into this month's review! For December I requested color, color and more color. I have been receiving a lot of black and gray items and really needed some bright, happy stuff in my box this time around. When I opened up my box, I was so happy to see my stylist had listened to me!
|Colors, colors, colors!|
I follow the Three Basic Stitch Fix Rules for K. J.:
- I do not read the prices before I try things on
- I hang up each item to give it a good look
- I try on each item, even if I think it will look terrible on me or I don't like the color/pattern/style.
Here is how this box shook out for me.
1) The first thing I hung up was the Maxx Sleeveless Illusion Dress by 41Hawthorne for $78. I adored the colors, but was not super happy about getting a sleeveless dress in December. However, I really loved the sleeveless dress that came in my September fix, so I was willing to give it a shot. The fabric was thick and the colors were definitely wintery.
The contoured navy blue on the green, though, was very figure flattering. If this dress had a little more fabric on the bottom, maybe I could've kept it, but the length is a no-go for 40-something me. Bye, bye! This was a sad, but inevitable "NO."
2) The next item I tried on was the Andi Bootcut Jean from Kut From The Kloth for $88. Hard to make pants look good on a hanger, but here they are.
I tried them on with dreams and wishes filling my head.
The length was not a big deal to me. In the photo I am barefoot, and wearing these pants with shoes or boots should fix some of that in short order. Also, you cannot see in the picture, but these pants have very flattering pockets on the back. Just in the right place. The fabric is also very soft and stretches just enough. Total KEEP.
I actually wore these pants the very same day I received them, I loved them that much!
3) Next on the list was the Shalley Split Neck Blouse from 41Hawthorn for $48. I hung it up on the hanger and contemplated for a minute why I got a summery, sheer-ish blouse in my December fix.
Another problem was the neckline. It has a split neck top. And it actually gapes open a little too much for my comfort. The vee is pretty low, so it could end up being a very embarrassing scenario if I wasn't careful!
Summery top with the fun fabric got the big old "NO" from me. Sorry!
4) Next on the list was the Demi Pullover Sweater from 41Hawthorn for $68. It reminded me a lot of the striped sweater I kept from my last fix.
5) The last item in my box was the Iverson V-Neck Pullover Sweater from Skies Are Blue for $64. I saw this one in the stack and was instantly drawn to the fun colors and interesting knit.
This picture did not show the colors very well. It is navy blue, cream, burgundy, mustard and forest green striped. The knit is light, but with texture to it. I liked the length of this, as well. I tried it on with a hopeful thought in my head...
So overall I kept 2 items out of 5. A pretty good success for me. Since last time was a 5 out of 5 box, getting a box like this suits me fine. Especially before Christmas. I was very glad that my stylist had listened to me about sending ONLY colorful things. She did a great job trying to find exciting colors and different items!
My next box is scheduled for March. Looking forward to what Stitch Fix will be sending my way come spring.
