Today I am finishing my review of my last Stitch Fix Box, Fix #17. I've already reviewed four of the items, scroll to the bottom of this post to see those pieces. This stunning maxi dress is the last item I have to review from that Fix. It is by Calvin Klein and is called "Desmona Ruffle Detail Cold Shoulder Maxi Dress".
This dress is absolutely beautiful. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. I loved how romantic it was with the white fabric, beautiful floral print, cold shoulder, and the ruffle overlay over the bust line. I felt like a princess wearing this dress. But, I had to send it back. It was very expensive, $138.00, and I honestly had no idea where I'd ever where it. It is very dressy to me, too dressy to wear to church. I do have a wedding coming up at the end of summer, but I really don't like wearing white or black to weddings so I didn't think it would work for that either. Plus, I already bought a dress for the wedding.
The back is very sexy because of the low dip and cold shoulder: another reason I could never wear this dress to church. 🤣
I really liked the ruffle over lay over the bust. I've always stayed clear of ruffles around my chest because I thought it would make my large bust look even bigger, but this seemed to do the opposite. I'm going to keep an eye in the stores for more tops with ruffle overlays and try some on!
For jewelry I chose dramatic pink tassel earrings (Charming Charlies).
On my wrist I wore a rose gold bracelet (Francesca's) and carried a pink clutch.
I chose these white wedges (old, JCPenney) for footwear.
I know you're all going comment what willpower I have to send this dress back, cause you always do! It is gorgeous, but impractical. And this time my husband and I were in complete agreement. He knew I'd never get enough wear out of it to justify the price. But I enjoyed trying it on and feeling like a princess if only for a few minutes!
I would have loved to have done a photo shoot wearing this dress in my beautiful garden, but I didn't dare for fear I would get it dirty and then not be able to send it back! So we did the photo shoot in my guest room instead.
And now for a review of the entire Fix: Stitch Fix Box #17!
Towne and Reese Lavi Leaf Pendant: KEPT!
In summary, this was my best Fix yet since I started receiving monthly Fixes. I kept 3 out of 5 items. I actually LOVED everything, the maxi dress was returned simply because it was impractical and too expensive. I also loved the green dress I returned, but the fit was just not right for my body type. I do hope my stylist sends me another dress in that beautiful green color because it's definitely my color.
So what do you think? Did I keep and send back the right items? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a Great Day! Amy
