I received this pretty floral fit and flare dress in my February Fix: Fix #15. To see two of the other items I received in that Fix and that I have already reviewed, go HERE and HERE. This is the third item I am reviewing from that Fix, and like the other two I sent it back. But it was hard for me, as I really liked this dress. It just was a little tight for me in the bust which made it uncomfortable...and you know me...I am all about being comfortable in my clothes!
I love the floral design with the solid navy blue bottom. The colors are so pretty as well!
In addition to the bust area being a bit snug, I also did not like the small straps. Even though they are not spaghetti straps, I really prefer more material on my shoulders so I can wear a regular bra with it.
Since I returned the dress, this item was styled for photography purposes only. I chose a white vintage wicker bag because I thought it was fitting with the classic dress. For jewelry I chose to pull out the corals in the dress with a statement necklace and beaded bracelet.
So what do you think? Did I make the right decision in returning this dress? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a Great Day! Amy

Oh wow. This outfit is so spring! Love that dress and those gorgeous floral prints <3ReplyDelete
Amy! That dress is so you!! I LOVE IT!!ReplyDelete
That dress is beautiful. Too bad you couldn't keep it but you are right if it's not comfortable you won't wear it.ReplyDelete
Thanks Marie. I really did like it, just felt uncomfortable in it and I knew I wouldn't wear it that much.Delete
Loving these colors and the style of the dress. But I understand why you sent it back, wonder if you could request in a size up? It's gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Thanks Elli! Yes, you can request an item in a different size, but I was also unsure of the straps. If it had more of a sleeve, I definitely would have done that.Delete
Stitch fix seems so fun, I’m going to have to try it one of these Days!ReplyDelete
They defnitely are fun! You should give it a try!Delete
It's a sweet dress but I've made mistakes keeping things that tug over the bust, so you're being wise to return it. Hugs my sweet, x.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much. At my age, I know my bust is not going to get any smaller! haha!Delete
That is such a pretty dress, and I love how you've styled it here! :) I think that how you feel and the fit is always more important than how something looks, so if it wasn't working for you best to let it go, no matter how pretty it is! :)ReplyDelete
Hope you had a lovely week and have a nice weekend ahead of you :) We went out for dinner yesterday and I'm catching up with a blogger friend today so it should be fun! :)

Thanks Mica, that's great advice!Delete
That's a shame about the dress Amy. It looks gorgeous on. I'm admiring the vintage wicker bag!ReplyDelete
Thanks Laurie! I've had that bag FOREVER. I have no idea where it even came from.Delete
It's such a pretty dress and so suits you. What a shame it's tight. Other than that I'd have used a strapless bra if it were just the straps that were the problem.ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking.
Tough call, girl. I agree about the straps. That would be a concern for me because I detest wearing a strapless bra. And we can't feel how tight the dress felt across the bust. It looks amazing on you and I love the colors. As always, your accessories are perfect, too.ReplyDelete
I was sad that you returned the bright floral top. I really LOVED that on you. Your great pieces make me wonder if I should play the lottery and try Stitch Fix again.
Thanks Leslie. I do regret returning that top, and maybe this dress too. I wish Stitch Fix gave me more time to decide.Delete
I love the floral print!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Isn't it pretty?Delete
I think the dress looks great on you but I return anything that doesn't make me feel like a million bucks in and only we know how we feel in something:)ReplyDelete

It is a sweet look, and I understand you want to be comfortable! I don't like anything tight around my (small) bustline. Lovely white purse! xoReplyDelete
Thank you Patti!Delete
The dress is pretty and the print is outstanding! But if it didn't fit quite right I would send it back to. After all, you want to feel good about what you wear and if all the boxes weren't checked off then no point in keeping the item.ReplyDelete

Beautiful dress! It looks so cute with the bolero cardigan. The colors and print are so pretty. It's too bad it didn't work out because it looks great on you. Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday!ReplyDelete

Thanks Jennie! I'm thinking of asking for this dress in a larger size for my next Fix. Hopefully it'll still be available.Delete
