This pretty floral coral top by Calvin Klein is the last piece from my Fix #15 that I have to show you. Like the other four pieces in that Fix, I also returned this one. It's a size Medium, but I could tell before I even tried it on that it would be too big. I could have asked for it in a smaller size, but it had a very boxy cut so I wasn't sure I would like it even if it was smaller.
The top does have a lot of redeeming values though. I love the color, the print, the belle sleeves, and the black piping. It even has a longer length in the back as it does in the front. It just was too big and boxy and I thought it made me look bigger than I am.
I styled the top with white jeans, coral heels, and a black handbag.
I couldn't believe how my coral heels matched the top so perfectly!
I really did like the contrast of the solid black piping against the coral.
I chose coral earrings and a coral bracelet for jewelry.
The floral print is a pretty watercolor style, and I love the belle sleeves.
Skinny Pants: Returned
Calvin Klein Performance Wear Top: Returned
Floral and Gingham Top: (Returned, but I wish I would have kept it)
Floral Fit and Flare Dress (Returned, but I wish I would have asked for it in a different size)
In summary, I received two items that I returned that I wish I would have kept. I really wish Stitch Fix would let you keep the items longer before you have to send them back. I feel I don't have enough time to get every one's feedback before I have to return them. I've also learned to trust my husband's opinion more than my own! GASP! But he has always been right! He really liked the floral dress and the floral and gingham top in this Fix too. And in my sixteenth Fix, he was really right! But you'll hear more about that next month! A friend of mine suggested that I ask Stitch Fix for these items again in my next Fix, so I'm gonna try that.
Have a Great Day! Amy

Love the color and print on this top, I agree it's a bit too big for you. Sorry you had a no-win box but next time will be a treat, I'm sure. Thanks for linking up, xoReplyDelete
Thanks Patti! My next Fix was much better! I did keep something that time. I would have kept two items but one was too expensive!Delete
It's such a lovely color Amy!! I know my mom would say to take in the side seams and make it a little more fitted if you don't like the boxiness!!ReplyDelete
And I know what you mean about the husband's opinion. I ask my hubby all the time. I think it's a different perspective, because we see ourselves differently!!
I know how to sew, but I don't want to if I don't have too! :) Your so right about the hubbys providing a different perspective. He always gets me outside my safe zone.Delete
The black piping on that first top is unique. Fits you well.ReplyDelete
This is a beautiful look Amy. I love how well the shoes match the shirt. I like this shirt and the pretty dress the most from this fix. So perfect for warm spring days and summer! Can't wait to see what you received in your latest fix!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ellie! I liked so many things about this top as well!Delete
I do love that gingham and floral top and that dress is gorgeous. I would definitely try to hunt them down again if they can't send them back to you!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ruth! I'll give it a go!Delete
I thought all of the items in your box were keepers. This darling top included. I can relate, though, to tops being boxy. And I remember you felt the dress (beautiful) was a bit snug in the bust. Wish, oh, wish you had kept the gingham floral. Beg your stylist to send it to you!!!ReplyDelete
Oh Leslie I could kick myself for sending that gingham floral top back and not requesting the dress in a larger size. I think I feared with the dress that if I got a larger size, then it would be too big everywhere else. It fit perfectly everywhere but the bust.Delete
The Calvin Klein top is lovely, I love the color and the print :)ReplyDelete
I think that top is really cute, but I know pictures can be deceiving. Photographs only show one angle and you can't see how it looks when it moves. It's too bad your box didn't work out well for you!ReplyDelete
Oh Wow! Perfect outfit, love that you had those shoes on standby ready for this perfect pairing with the top. Super outfit. Hugs, x.Delete
Thanks Laura! Yes, my husband and I have become quite skilled at knowing how to photograph me to always show my best side so I don't think the boxiness of the shirt really was obvious in this post.Delete
Thank you...yes, I can't wear these shoes much in real life as they are way too high for me, but they are perfect to keep on hand for photo shoots!Delete
I love the coral and black. I used to think I couldn't wear coral, but now I'm loving it. Great bracelet and shoes with the combo, too. I'm thinking of doing Stitch Fix again, but have only done it once so far. Maybe you've inspired me! I think I may have set too low a price point before, and that's why I didn't like much of what they sent me. I'll have to be more realistic next time.ReplyDelete
Thank you! Yes, Stitch Fix is expensive. But its worth it because they have a lot of unique pieces!Delete
This is such a sweet and chic look dear. Love the coral heels, really perfect for the floral top and white denim pants.ReplyDelete

the coral color is so pretty on you and I did like the print. Too bad it was too big! Your white denim looks fab on you. Perhaps they will give you more time to think about things in the future.. I dont always like to decide right away!
