On Friday I reviewed 4 out of 5 pieces from my Stitch Fix box #18. I saved one piece, this jumpsuit, to review for today so I could show you lots of pictures!
I have been seeing jumpsuits in Blog Land and in stores and have been curious to try one on to see what I would look like in one. So I asked my stylist to send me a jumpsuit, and she did! I was thrilled to see this pretty red jumpsuit in my box.
The jumpsuit is by Skies Are Blue and is called "Danica Jumpsuit".
There were many things about this jumpsuit I loved: the cherry red fabric, the white floral print, the wide pant leg, and the soft, flowing fabric. What I didn't love? The spaghetti straps and the lack of waist definition. It did nothing for my thick waist.
I would have preferred a jumpsuit with more of a shoulder strap or sleeves, and something with more waist definition like a wrap, a ruching, or even a wider belt.
The back of the jumpsuit was gathered with elastic so there was plenty of give making it very comfortable to wear.
I did not think the jumpsuit was very attractive from behind. I also didn't like how exposed my upper back was with just the spaghetti straps. I'd like to try a jumpsuit that keeps my back more covered up.
It was a fun piece to style. I accessorized with this large, dramatic silver necklace my husband bought for me at a gift shop in Stockholm, Minnesota.
I picked out the white and black in the print and wore a white bracelet and hat and carried a white and black handbag.
The finishing touch for a fun jumpsuit were these funky high-heeled cork sandals.
I really liked this jumpsuit, but in the end I returned it because I didn't think I'd get a lot of use out of it with the bare shoulders/over-exposed back. I would like to try another jumpsuit that offers more coverage. My stylist recommended wearing a denim jacket or cardigan with it, but if it's that cold to need those pieces, I wouldn't be wearing the jumpsuit.
Skies Are Blue Danica Jumpsuit: RETURNED
In summary, I'm glad I asked for a jumpsuit in my Fix, but this wasn't the right one for me. I am very open to trying another one in a different style that would be more flattering for my body type and provide more coverage.
Have a Great Day! Amy
