Quick! I need help! Don’t worry it’s nothing urgent, but I got my latest Stitch Fix box and I really can’t decide what (if anything) I should keep!
Let me bring you up-to-date on Stitch Fix. It’s this awesome clothing subscription box that you can schedule once a week, once a month or once a year depending on your needs… or more aptly, your wants. You pay a $20 styling fee for each box, but if you keep anything out of the box that $20 goes towards your purchase. If you should keep everything, then you get a 25% discount on everything in the box! Cool deal, right? And I can’t tell you how exciting it is to get clothes in the mail!! I seriously get giddy every time I see that cute little box on my doorstep. 🙂
Anyway, on to my problem of the day… I got my latest Stitch Fix Box (#5!) today and I only have three days to decide what I’m going to keep (then I ship it back in the pre-paid mailing envelope!) and I really don’t know what to pick… soooo, can I show you some pictures and have you give me some feedback? (Bonus: You get to see my new ‘do, too!)
Ok… so I got all sweaters/shirts in this box and I don’t really think I LOVE any of them (which is usually a requirement for me to keep anything), but I do LIKE all of them… although some of them don’t fit so well… but again… I digress!
So here is the first peek at the colors in my box (I love this part!):
Ok so here is item #1: Northridge Cowlneck Jersey Top $68.00
Let me start by saying this is the most comfortable fabric ever! It is so soft and warm! It’s hard to see in this picture, but it’s got a wide-band at the bottom of the shirt. I think it will look really cute with my black leggings and high boots… I have it on with my skinny jeans and high boots and that looks cute, too. I really do like this shirt a lot, but I’m not sure if I like it $68 worth or if it is flattering (of course, I would only pay an additional $48 — as I could use my $20 styling fee towards it…)
Onto item #2: Jaclynn 3/4 Sleeeve Button-Up Cardigan $38.00
Ok. So this one I really liked the color (So sorry about these pictures… they are kind of hard to see because the sun was so bright when I took these!) — it’s Navy blue in case you can’t see it. It is a really good quality and super soft as well. Unfortunately, I can’t really button this one and it’s a little bit short so I think this is a no, but I hope they send me more cardigans in the future… I really liked the price point on this one, too — $38 is totally doable!
Item #3: Maverick Cut-Out Dot Striped Sweater $68.00
This one felt super tight when I put it on… it doesn’t look too bad in this picture, but I don’t think I’d be comfortable wearing it, though. At least not until I lose some more weight. And, again, the $68 price tag is kind of a show-stopper for me. I can say that this one is a no.
Item #4: Benning Mixed Stripe Raglan Shirt $54.00
This one is fun… kind of like long-john fabric… again with the super comfy and cozy. It’s a bit long but I don’t think it’s too, too long. I think this one will look cute with black leggings, too and it looks ok with the skinny jeans, as well. I’m just not sure if the horizontal stripes are a good idea? Also, $54 is a little steep for long johns…. I’m on the fence about this one…
Item #5: Dalilah Sheer Floral Cluster Blouse $58.00
This one kind of surprised me… when I pulled it out of the box I was like “eww” I don’t like this one at all. But seeing the picture of it on I think it looks kind of cute. My stylist (it’s so fun to say that!) said in her note to me: “I also included the Dalilah feminine blouse that is easy to dress up or down,” which this would look really nice with a cute pencil skirt (not that I have one of those yet) or a nice pair of black slacks. The problem is this one is a little tight around my thighs and across the shoulders. I hate to spend money on something that doesn’t fit correctly… so another one that I’m torn on…
So… what do you think? Anything a must have? Or a definite “no”? You know how it’s sometimes easier to see what looks good when it’s not on your own body? That’s where I’m hoping you can help me out!
I hope you have a fabulous weekend… I’m off to prepare for a craft fair tomorrow. If you are local, be sure to come visit me at the Chatham Community Center between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. tomorrow!
