Today's the day many of you have been waiting for: I'm revealing what I items I kept in my March Stitch Fix box! 🤣 Yea, right, I am sure y'all had nothing else to do but hold your breath waiting in anxious expectation. Although, quite a few did say you couldn't wait to find out, so drum roll please.......... I KEPT ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I know, surprise right? I'm sure so many of you are wondering why I didn't keep the printed pants, but you'll find out in just a moment. For now, let's take a look at the last item in the Fix that I have not shown you yet. This pretty emerald green wrap top.
41 Hawthorn Aliska Front Wrap Knit Top
There were a few things I loved about this top, the number one reason is the color. Stitch Fix keeps sending me items this color because I love it so much, but unfortunately the item doesn't work for me for another reason. I also liked the wrap style and the unique neckline.
What I didn't like was that from the back it really clinged so you could see my love handles. Yuck. Who wants that? Unless I always planned on wearing it with a cardigan or jacket, I could never wear this top alone. It also made me look very busty. Of course, my husband loved that, and I'm sure there's lots of women out there who like to accentuate that feature, but I'm not one of them. I'm actually very self conscious of my bust size and I like to minimize it as much as possible.
The top also polled the lowest on Instagram coming in at only 15% keep and 85% return. That was the absolute lowest score I've ever seen since I started these polls. You gals really did not like this top, so I listened to you and sent it back.
Margaret M Sylvie Printed Straight Leg Pant
Returning these pants was a hard one for me, for I really liked the print and the way they looked from the front. They were so cute! But my hubby thought they flattened my butt and looked old-lady style. Which is really funny as I am 56 years old, so technically I am an old lady, but he prefers me to not dress my age. However, when I saw the pictures, I agreed with him. They did not do my backside any favors, and unless I was ALWAYS going to wear a long top that covered my butt, they would never work. So, I'm gonna be brave here and show you this picture, so you know what I am talking about and your not mad at me for sending these pants back. I know so many of you thought they were super cute and trendy; which they are. Printed pants are very "in" this season, so I'm hoping that Stitch Fix will send me a pair that's just as flattering of the back view as it is in the front.
On Instagram the pants were tied 50/50. They were far more popular on my blog post than they were on Instagram. Sometimes I think opinions can be swayed because the videos on Instagram are super short and I'm standing in front of a mirror. Whereas when I do a blog post I'm posing to get the best pictures and angles, thus, I look better. Anyone would.
Liverpool Kolten Denim Jacket
This jacket was the most popular item on Instagram polling at 67% Keep 33% Return. I loved the jacket, it was a stretch denim and super comfortable. But, I already own a white denim jacket, and a white leather jackets, and tons of white cardigans, so I really didn't need it. I still almost kept it because my old white denim jacket is yellowing with age and it is not stretch denim so it's uncomfortable to wear, but with the $88.00 price tag, I just couldn't justify it.
Vince Camuto Palmyra Ruffle Detail Blouse
There were many things I liked about this top: the blue and white floral, the sleeves, and the flow of it. What I didn't like was that it was completely sheer and it was unlined nor did it come with a tank. So I had to use one of my own tanks, and even after heavily spraying my tank with Static Guard I could not stop this top from clinging to it. It was very frustrating. I also didn't think it flattered me much in the shoulder area, so back it went.
The top polled at 47% keep and 53% send back.
Daniel Rainn Maiella Off the Shoulder Knit Top
This was my favorite piece in this box, and I think it was my husband's favorite as well. It was SO COMFORTABLE! The knit was super soft, and I loved the way it hung on my body covering everything I like to hide and showing my better assets. What I didn't like was the pattern. Although some of my readers comments about the pattern made me rethink it and now I like the pattern. But I also didn't want another off-the-shoulder top. I already own three of them, two of the three I own I only wore once, so I really didn't need another one. I've also read multiple times that off-the-shoulder tops are out of style (although I will be wearing mine this summer!) which really caused me to fear investing in another one.
My Instagram readers didn't care much for this top. It came in at 38% keep and 62% return.
In summary, even though I didn't keep anything from this box, I'm not upset. Stitch Fix is expensive, and I kept three items in my last box, so I knew if I kept anything in my March box, it would have to pretty awesome.
