I was a bit apprehensive about getting my second Stitch Fix. I had loved everything in my first shipment so I was thinking my second box would surely contain items I would just hate. But I was wrong...
I opened the box and right away saw patterns I loved. As I unfolded each item I was amazed that each one was something I probably would not have considered for myself in a store, and yet I liked them. For example, the black skinny jeans, I would never have had the nerve to try skinny jeans. But once I tried them on I saw that they were actually more flattering than regular jeans on me when worn with the cute longer tops they were sending.
My stylist had actually heard me! I had asked for lightweight clothing and that's what I got. I told her I had a very curvy figure (and a bit overweight) and she picked flattering styles for me. I told her I mainly wanted stuff to wear out with the girls or maybe to a casual dinner with my husband, and she delivered beautifully.
The Marty Embroidered Yolk Blouse is very pretty. It is made from a very sheer fabric but I received a black camisole with one of my blouses in my last shipment that will look great under it. Price $48.00 less 25% $28.00. Verdict kept.
Samson Corduroy Detail Quilted Coat. I didn't much care for this at first, but then I noticed the cute cut and details, and the lining...and then I tried it on. It was lightweight but cozy, and I really liked it but I had trouble closing it in front, it was a little tight. Also I wondered how that cute lining would look when worn over a patterned top. Hummm Price $88.00 After 25% discount $66.00. Verdict returned.
|Pulls across the back.|
|Doesn't close on me well|
Dustin Graphic Chevron Print Knit Back Top. I normally avoid sleeveless tops as I'm a little self-conscious about my upper arms. But I loved the design and the colors so much I decided to try it on and it fit fine. Price $54.00 After 25% discount $40.50. Verdict kept.
|Sorry for the fuzzy focus.|
Tucker Mixed Print 3/4 Sleeve Blouse. This is definitely not a top I would have considered if I saw it on a store rack. The bold colors I just didn't think were me. But it began to grow on me and I could picture it in the summer with pair of white jeans. The dark jeans look great with it too. I wanted to keep this one, until I saw the picture of it from the back! lol Price $48.00 After 25% discount $36.00. Verdict returned.
|Not attractive from the back.|
|Maybe too much from the front too!|
Jacob Skinny Jeans. These jeans are so soft and seem well made. They are very comfortable and would look great with all of the tops I got in this shipment. I didn't take separate pictures of them but I have them on in most of the pictures above. I liked the way the fit except they were too long. I usually get short or petite in pants. Price $78.00 Price after 25% discount $58.50. Verdict returned but with a note that I would love them in a petite size.
Bottom line. I loved everything, but everything didn't fit well so I ended up keeping two tops this time around. I'm so glad the items I didn't keep are so easy to return and after my credit for my 20.00 styling fee (and I had some referral credits), I came out pretty good! Can't wait for my next fix!!
