Hello! For this week's mid-week fashion post, I wanted to show you my latest Stitch Fix. Most of my readers are already familiar with Stitch Fix, but for those of you who are not, you can read my very first Stitch Fix post HERE. I only do Stitch Fix a few times a year, usually before a new season or a vacation, just to keep me from getting in a style rut. It helps to have someone else pick out my clothes once in awhile, or else I feel I am constantly drawn to the same styles. For this fix, I requested 'Some trendy spring items' and I linked my profile to my spring Pinterest board. As always, my items arrived in a pretty little package, and I always like to peek at the side view before opening it up. When I saw this view, I squealed with delight because I really liked what I was seeing (but not for long!).
First up: the floral pencil skirt. I was estactic when I saw this skirt in my fix because I have wanted a floral skirt for so long but I have yet to find one that looks good on me. However, when I put it on, that's when my happiness ended. You see the print and style of the skirt is gorgeous, but the material is a very strong, ponte-roma knit. It clinged to my body like a tight rubber band and it not only felt uncomfortable to wear, but it showed EVERY lump and bulge. It was also so clingy, that I felt it was too provocative of a piece for my lifestyle, so I sent it back.
THIS POST where I received another Fit and Flare dress from Stitch Fix, this cut just does not work for my body type.
This hi-low tee shirt I kept because I really liked the feel of the material, the color, and the hi-lo cut. It also has some black flecks of color in it that makes it different than anything else I own.
I think part of my problem in my last two fixes is that I linked my profile to my Pinterest board and then my stylist thinks I need or want whatever is on my board, not realizing that those are just outfit ensemble ideas for items I already own in my closet. So I have since removed those links from my profile, and now I only have a link to my Stitch Fix board…which are items I saw on the Stitch Fix blog or Stitch Fix items other blogger's received that I liked. My next fix is scheduled for early summer, so we will see if this change brings me a better fix.
So what about you. Do you like any of the items I received in this fix? Do you think I kept the right pieces? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a great day! Amy
