It’s time for another non-running post (more running stuff coming soon, I promise!)
After a successful first fix, I was super excited to get my second. I requested the same stylist and requested jewel-tones, and boy, did Grace deliver! Here’s her note to me:
In case you don’t know what Stitch Fix is, here’s a summary: It’s a personal styling service for women. You fill out a style profile (and can even link to a Pinterest board with specific images for your stylist), and then you get a box of 5 items of clothes in the mail picked out just for you! You get a pre-paid, return envelope to return whatever you don’t want for free, and only pay for the things you want to keep. The cost is $20 per fix, but if you keep anything, the price goes toward that item. AND if you keep all 5 items, you get an additional discount of 25% on the entire fix! When you set up your profile, you pick the price points you’re comfortable with.
1. 41Hawthorne Bell Chevron Textured Tie-Neck Blouse in Cobalt ($68) and
2. Margaret M Emer High Waisted Cropped Trouser in Black ($98)
I asked for jewel tones in this box, and boy, did Grace deliver! Cobalt is one of those colors that I think looks good on just about anyone, and I love how rich the color is. The top has a slight chevron pattern to it which adds nice interest. The fit was a little loose, but since this top is sleeveless I’d always need to wear it under a cardigan or blazer to the office, and I usually tuck tops in. Styling it this way looked great on me! Verdict: kept.
These pants….I wasn’t sure about when I first pulled them out. They don’t have zipper/buttons at the waist (just elastic) and no pockets. They basically look like leggings/running pants but in a thick dress pant material. I also was hesitant about the price. However, I tried them on and…..omg. They fit me PERFECT. I have a hard time finding pants to fit me and I was so happy at how stupid comfortable these pants were. They’ll be great to wear this winter with boots and sweaters, too. Verdict: kept.
3. 41Hawthorne Dita Sleveeless Ponte Dress in Dark Pink ($68)
The color of this dress is amazing! This dress is a good example of something I probably wouldn’t have picked out for myself because I tend to go for more sheath dresses, and this has an a-line skirt. The length is a tad long but it makes it very appropriate for work. It’s sleeveless, but I can put a blazer or sweater over it, or even put a turtleneck under it with tights and boots. The dress fit me like a glove and the detailing around the waist is so flattering. I got a ton of compliments when I wore this to work. Verdict: kept.
4. Bay to Baubles Lysander Gem Stone Statement Collar Necklace in White ($44)
In my first fix, I asked my stylist for necklaces with gemstones. I like the shape of this necklace as I tend to gravitate more toward these statement necklaces. I’m not sure about the white since it’s not something I’ll probably match a lot with in the fall, but I will be able to wear it a lot in summer I think. Sadly, this necklace was broken when I received it (one of the gemstones fell out). However, I emailed customer service and they sent me a brand new one very quickly. I was super impressed with the service! Verdict: kept.
5. THML Alycia Leather Shoulder Knit Zip Jacket in Navy ($78)
When I pulled this out of the box I squealed with delight. I have a new obsession with both navy and leather detail, and this top fit both of those! In addition, I had pinned a similar top to my pinterest board, and Grace told me that she picked this one since it was like the jacket I had pinned. How great is that? The jacket was a perfect fit, even in the sleeves. It’s a great fall piece! I’ve already worn it to work and got a ton of compliments (I wore it with my wine colored pants!) Verdict: Kept
If you’re keeping track, you’ll notice that I kept all 5 pieces! That means I got 25% off, plus I had a $25 referral credit, so I saved close to $100 off the total. I’m suppppper excited to get my next fix!
