For this review, instead of reviewing one piece at a time per post, I'm gonna review four items in this post and then I'll review my fifth item next Monday.
First up, this denim jacket by Liverpool.
I loved the blue color and fit of this jacket. It was SO HARD for me to send it back. 😢

Next up is a lovely white Calvin Klein top and Kut From The Kloth shorts. First I'll review the top.
I'm a sucker for white, especially white tops. I can't even begin to tell you how many white tops I already own. Yet, every time I'm looking in my closet for a white top to coordinate with an item, I never seem to have the right one. So when Stitch Fix sent me this white top I had a pretty good hunch from the minute I opened the box that this would be a keeper.
First, it's sleeveless: perfect for wearing under cardigans or jackets in the colder months, and cool enough to wear alone in the warmer months. Second, it's made of a jersey knit type of material, so it's comfortable and will not need to ironed. And finally, it has a great fit.

Now to review the shorts. My stylist sent me these shorts because I pinned them on my Stitch Fix board. But I actually pinned an outfit, and I think I liked the top and bag more than the shorts. These shorts are pretty cute. I love the color and print. I also love that they are made of linen. I love the comfort of linen shorts. BUT, I just purchased a pair of solid red linen shorts so I really didn't think I needed these. I also felt the rise was too low and the length was a little shorter than I prefer.
The shorts have a elastic waist band. Because the rise is so short, it makes tucking in shirts difficult. And then because the length of the shorts is so short, if I left the shirt un-tucked, I felt you couldn't see much of the pretty print.

The next item in my Fix was a pair of sneakers. I must admit when I saw a shoe bag in my box I got so excited. I am such a huge shoe lover! But when I opened the bag and saw that they were sneakers, my heart sank. I really don't wear sneakers all that much; usually only if I know I'll be walking a lot when traveling. I just feel they make me look frumpy. Yet, I love them on every one else. But when I put them on, I feel like a frumpy housewife, so I try to avoid wearing them if I can.
I will say that these sneakers were SO COMFORTABLE. My stylist said they had a "padded footbed". I almost kept them for this reason alone, but I really didn't need them. I already own plenty of sneakers, and I hardly wear any of them.
They do have this interesting detail on the back. And another interesting detail is that the sneakers are "collapsible"; so you can easily throw them in a bag if you want to wear them to walk to work and change into other shoes later.
They really are super cute sneakers. I loved the chambray fabric. They actually were kinda hard to send back because ya'll know I'm all about comfort, especially for my feet, and I LOVED how comfortable these sneakers were. If I didn't already own about 50 pair of sneakers, I would have kept them. haha!
So, what do you think? Did I make the right decisions? I'd love to hear from you in the comments below.
Next Monday I'll review one more item from this Fix: a jumpsuit!
Have a Great Day! Amy
