I just got my November Stitch Fix box this Saturday and at the time I'm writing this post, I'm still trying to decide what to keep and what to send back. I'm having a hard time because I love everything! I created a poll on my Instastories on Instagram and I would really appreciate it if you'd pop on over there and vote on each item. The poll should run through 3:30 central on Monday. I don't need to decide what to keep until Tuesday, and I will really be taking whatever you guys say into consideration. So please vote! And of course you can leave your opinion of these three pieces in the comment section below this post.
In this Fix I received a vest, a sweater, a necklace, a pair of skinny corduroy pants, and a bell sleeve top. Today I will review three of those pieces: the vest, sweater, and necklace. On Friday I'll review the last two pieces and then do a review of the entire Fix and let you know what I kept and what I sent back.
The first item I will review is this vest.
Lemon Tart "Kallen Ponte Puffer Vest"
I'll be honest and admit I sneaked a peek on the Stitch Fix website to see what they were sending me in advance. I try so hard not to do that, because I really liked to be surprised, but sometimes I just can't help myself. When I saw I had a puffer vest in my Fix I initially thought "Oh no, I don't need another puffer vest. I already own five!". But then when my Fix arrived and I pulled out the vest I was blown away. It is so well-constructed! It's one of those items when you examine it you realize you definitely get what you pay for because the quality is amazing.
I'm normally not a big plaid lover, but this plaid is so subtle it works for me. I like the colors in the plaid. It has a tiny bit of burgundy in it which really works for me because I have a lot of burgundy in my closet. It is very tapered, so even though it's quilted and thick, it's very slimming for a vest. It doesn't feel or look like it adds a lot of extra bulk to my frame.
It has side pockets with zippers! Yes, another plus for me!
My husband really liked the vest too, and feels I should keep it. He says I don't have anything like it, and he's right, I don't. He liked the quilting as well.
The next item is this necklace.
Marlyn Schiff "Newman Circle Charm Layering Necklace"
I like the style of this necklace but the quality of the necklace is kind of cheap for the cost. I could find something similar for half the cost or less at Charming Charlies or elsewhere. I will probably only keep the necklace if I keep the entire Fix because it is pointless to send only the necklace back and lose my 25% off discount.
Vero Moda Leroya Crew Neck Pullover Sweater
Things I love about this sweater: the color, the thin knit, the length. Things I don't love: the crew neck and shoulders don't flatter my figure. I also have two similar colored sweaters in my closet already.
The two similar sweaters I already own are slightly different. One has a lace up neckline (HERE) and the other is a thicker knit and shorter (HERE). I prefer this Stitch Fix one over the thicker, shorter knit one I already own. This happens a lot to me with my Stitch Fix items. I already own a similar item, but I like the one Stitch Fix sends me better, and I want to keep the Stitch Fix item, even if I really don't need it. Ugh! That's why I need you to help me decide!
I'm actually not a big fan of pullover sweaters in general because I never think they flatter me. I always prefer tops with cardigans or vests. But, living in Wisconsin, pullovers are often necessary: as you can probably tell by these photos. Yes, we have snow already. This is actually our 4th snowfall this season. It's going to be one long, miserable winter.
I'd really love your thoughts on these items! I don't have to decide till Tuesday, so please advise me! I'll be back on Friday with the other two pieces of this Fix and I'll let you know the results of the poll on Instagram and also what I ultimately decided to keep.
