You guys! I’m back! Did you miss me? I’m so excited to be blogging again. I’ve been staring sadly at all these boxes that have been stacking up, gathering dust while I’ve been healing from my accident. This has been my view for the past month, so you understand why I’ve been MIA (notice how fab my nail polish looks though #priorities):
Blogging is fun for me, so I’m glad to be able to type again and bestow you all with the gift of my opinions. You’re welcome.
[Programming Note: I’m so happy Jill is feeling good enough to blog again!!! Wooooo!!! But– she’s still not 100%, so for now, we are going to continue our Monday/Wednesday/Friday blogging schedule. You can blame Jill for this because she is very slow right now. So slow. 😉 ]
I took a little break from Stitch Fix because it wasn’t working out for me, but their awesome customer service department stumbled upon my last review and reached out to me so I figured I’d give it another shot. I’m glad they did, because I really loved this box! It was curated specifically for me, and they really listened to what I wanted. I’m so excited to show you guys what I got, but first a little info about Stitch Fix:
For a $20 styling fee, Stitch Fix assembles a box of clothing/accessories unique to you – your tastes, preferences, sizing, body shape, lifestyle, even your Pinterest boards are taken into consideration. Keep anything they send you, and the $20 fee is subtracted from the retail amount of whatever you keep. Likewise, you can send anything back and not pay anything more. Ok let’s look at what I got!
Papermoon Edlynne Dress – $64.00: I love this dress so, so much. It is exactly my style, plus super versatile. Dress it up with heels or keep it casual with some booties. I could enjoy it year-round, paired with tights and boots in the cooler months or without in the warmer ones. The shape is super flattering, the pattern is subtle, the fabric is soft and light. It’s my perfect dress, with one exception – it’s about 5″ too short for me. GAAAAHHHHH!!!!! Back it went.
RD Style Julian Crew Neck Sweater – $78.00: I love this sweater as much as I love the above dress. I specifically asked for oversized neutral sweaters to wear with skinny jeans/leggings and booties, and Stitch Fix delivered. The fabric is super soft, the scooped hemline is an interesting detail, the sleeves are perfectly too long and awesome for pulling over my hands when I’m chilly. This sweater is in fact so perfect for me that I already own it. Dammit. Sadly, back it went.
Market & Spruce Carly Graphic Print Cardigan – $78.00: I was excited when I opened this sweater, it is exactly what I asked for – an oversized, neutral color sweater, with a nod to tribal prints. I wanted to love it on, but sometimes reality is cruel and I look terrible in things that I love. It made me look like an elephant, despite how much I love it on the hanger. Sigh. Back it went.
19 Cooper Clemency Split Neck Tunic – $68.00: I definitely squealed when I opened this shirt. In addition to giant sweaters, I asked for loose, flowy shirts and tunics. The picture isn’t a great representation of the color, which is a beautiful deep emerald green. It’s exactly the sort of shirt I’d wear – if I was 2 sizes smaller. It was very tiny and had no stretch at all. The arms were nice and loose, but the chest area was way too narrow, I could barely get it on. Sadly, this one went back too.
Bay to Baubles Cordova Stone Pendant Necklace – $28.00: It’s no surprise why I got this necklace. Like the above sweater, I love it so much that I already own it. I bought it from Prima Donna in brown (see here) recently, and I wear it often. If I was smarter I would have kept this necklace to prevent losing my $20 styling fee, but I am a fool and sent it back. Curses!
Final Rating: A
I really loved everything in this box, even though I had reasons for returning it all. It was a HUGE improvement over the past few boxes I received, and totally turned around my opinion of Stitch Fix. I may not subscribe every month, but I am definitely looking forward to getting a box here or there in the future.
