I received my ninth Stitch Fix in the mail last week and did the happy dance! I absolutely love the surprise of getting my latest Fix and I look so forward to it. This one, I was especially excited for because I had asked for spring clothes, my favorite season of the year.
For those of you who may not even know what a "Fix" is and why I would be so happy to get one, check out my very first Stitch Fix post HERE to learn all about it.
Because my Fall Stitch Fix was such a huge success, I decided to be very specific with my stylist again and told her what type of pieces I was looking for. This time I requested cropped flared jeans, culottes, cut out or off the shoulder tops, A-line skirts, gauze tops, and anything in the Serenity Blue or Dusty Rose colors. I think I got everything I asked for except for the cropped flared jeans and culottes.
Here's what I received: A cotton-gauze top in Serenity Blue
I really like this top because it was very thin and had slight openings in the weave, so I thought it would be perfect for staying cool yet covered in warm weather. However, the second I pulled it out of the box, I knew it would never fit. It is so tiny! It says small on the label, but look at the width from the collar to the sleeve....there's hardly nothing there! Only a child's shoulders are that slender. I could not even get this top on! I would describe this top as an XXS! So sorry, no picture of me wearing this top as it would not even fit over my shoulders.
Status: SENT BACK. But only because it did not fit. Otherwise I would have loved to have kept this top.
The next item I received was a pair of bootcut jeans.
When I saw I received boot cut jeans I knew no matter how great they looked on me, they'd be going back. I already have a tote full of bootcut jeans, I do not need one more pair. But these were such nice jeans. They fit great, they felt great, I loved the slight distressing and the waist line band. I was sad to have to return them.
Status: SENT BACK
My next item contained two elements I requested in my Fix "Cutouts" and "Dusty Rose" color. It was a pink cutout blouse.
I absolutely love the color, pattern, and cut outs in this blouse. It is slightly tight in the bosom which causes the cut out part of the top to buckle a bit. I almost returned it for this reason, but I couldn't bear it.
My next item was a gauze peplum top.
This item, more than any other I agonized whether to return or keep. And I mean AGONIZED! I loved the color, I loved the embroidering, I loved the material, and I loved the peplum. What I didn't love? The back. I just didn't like the way the top looked on me from the back. The elastic waist seemed to fall exactly where my "spare tire" is and accentuate that. The only way I could ever wear this top was with a jacket or cardigan.
In the end, I loved the way the top looked so much with a jacket that I decided it was worth it.
And finally, the last item I received was a short printed linen skirt.
This was another item I deliberated long and hard over. I love this skirt. The print is perfect for summer, I adore the frayed edges, and the linen material is fabulous. What I didn't like: it is really short! Now, I have been known to wear short skirts, but this skirt is short for even me. The waist line is super tiny, so I have to wear it high up on my waist where I'm the smallest. So there's no way I can tug it down and wear it lower on my hips.
And now some pictures of me wearing my new pieces. I decided to just do "Selfies" because I'd rather show you the items fully styled in future fashion posts.
First up, the jeans with the peplum top. Oh, it was so hard to give up these jeans. They felt so great. And this top is awesome; it goes with so many colors because of the coloring in the embroidery.
I also like how the top is longer in back than it is in front.
Next, I wanted to see what the top looked like with skinny colored jeans, so I tried it with my grey skinnies. I loved it.
Here's a picture of how the top looks from the back. Now do you see why I need to always wear a jacket or cardigan with it?
First I tried it with my army green utility jacket as suggested by the style card. I liked this look a lot.
And next, I tried it with a denim jacket, and really loved this look.
And finally, here's my short skirt. I paired it with a white camisole and flip flops, but I hope to find a nicer pair of flat sandals for walking around in Vegas.
I tried the top both un-tucked and tucked in and I wasn't sure which look I liked better. Which one do you prefer?
And that was my Spring Fix! It wasn't one of my best Fixes, but I was happy with it. I booked another Fix for June and asked for Summer items.
Have a Great Day! Amy
