My 4th shipment from Stitch Fix just arrived! I was especially excited about this box for two reasons. First, I loved the Margaret M. Emer high waisted cropped pant from my last fix and requested them in a different color but, to my disappointment, they were out of stock. Second, this was the first time I followed Stitch Fix’s advice and linked to a Pinterest board that would give my Stylist a sense of my taste, and I was eager to see how that affected their selections for me. Unfortunately, and to my surprise, this box missed the mark.
PIXLEY Edmond Henley Knit Top, M ($54) - While pastel colors are usually a staple of spring trends, I’ve never been a fan. That’s why I knew this shirt was a definite return. But I like the softness of the material and the overall relaxed style of the shirt.
41HAWTHORN Filbert Abstract Striped Henley Blouse, M ($58) - The shirt has a starchy quality which makes it hang in an unnatural way. The stiffness of the material creates an unflattering silhouette making my waist look larger than it is. I also don’t like the fullness of the sleeves and the way it gathers at the cuff because it feels a little like a costume.
41HAWTHORN Colibri Solid Tab Sleeve Blouse, M ($48) - This top was actually something I had pinned on my Pinterest Board. A semi-sheer shirt with a slouchy fit. I love the color but not the way the shirt looked on me.
ROMOLO Cervantes Geo Pendant Necklace ($34) - This necklace is refreshingly modern and chic. I love that it is a unique piece that can easily work with a lot of wardrobe basics. But since I kept the gold necklace from my previous box, I decided to return this one.
KUT FROM THE KLOTH Kate Boyfriend Jean, 2 ($78) - I love jeans. I rarely drop more than $10-$15 on a shirt, but I’ll pay $150 for a pair of jeans I love. While I’m loyal to a handful of labels (True religion, Seven for all Mankind, Diesel), I realized that I haven’t tried a new brand of jeans in almost 10 years. These were a slimmer take on a boyfriend jean, yet surprisingly comfortable. They sit a little higher on the waist and hit just above my ankle when unrolled (I’m 5'7"). The medium weight denim has a little stretch and a slightly wider opening around the calves (which I like).
