Stitch Fix #5

Stitch Fix #5!

Pictures courtesy of my awesome, patient husband.  Thank you!

This box was promising right off the bat.  Good colors and patterns! 

The first thing I tried on was the "Jeane" Stripe Sleeve V-Neck Cardigan from Mak ($38):

 This was close to being good!  I liked the mix of solid with pattern, but the sleeves were a bit too bold and distracting.  The real problem, though, was that it looked a bit frumpy on, and wouldn't close over my hips.  Sending it back.

Next up was one that looked really good - Pomelo's "Avah" Chevron Print Dolman Sleeve Top. ($58)  I kept a Pomelo top from a previous box, so I was hoping this would be just as perfect:

 Alas, not quite.  I liked the color and pattern and it was really soft, but the band around the bottom was a bit too snug on my hips and I had to suck in or my tummy looked really lumpy right above that band.  Not flattering.  It would look really good on someone with no tummy, or who was a few inches taller than me and had more room between that snug band and the more billowy top.  Sending it back. 

Next up, Market and Spruce's "Harlin" V-Neck Plaid Print Knit Shirt ($48):

Again, so close!  This was fairly flattering, despite it's extra length on my short frame - it fell away from my tummy and hips and was very comfortable.  The back was the problem here.  The plaid wasn't my favorite pattern and was brighter than the picture shows.  It just was... okay.  Not keeping.

The last top was Loveappella's "Canon" Button Detail Striped Knit Top ($48):

I really, really liked the style of this one!  The grey at the shoulders continued across the top of the back, and the button detail on the sleeves was really cute.  It just didn't fit well.  It was a bit snug across my chest and the fabric was the kind that showed every lump and bump.  It needed to be a bit looser for that type of fabric.  It was also a bit rough & scratchy feeling, which I knew would keep me from wearing it very often.  Reluctantly sending it back.  

The last item was a dress, which was a surprise since I had asked for just tops.  The "Kamile" Jersey Ruched Detail Dress from Gilli ($64):

What a surprise!  I have a hard time finding dresses that I'm comfortable in, but I liked this one!  It had a very defined waist, was a great color (a little more olive than the picture shows), and was a super comfortable jersey knit.  Keeping!

Overall, I think this stylist, Hillary, was pretty on-point in terms of style.  She also had obviously read my styling note and looked at my Pinterest page, judging from her note in the box and her selections.   I've already requested her for my next box.  I think that with a little more time maybe we can get the fit issues worked out and this could be the beginning of something beautiful.  

If you're interested in trying Stitch Fix yourself, I'd encourage you to check out my other reviews to see some better examples of boxes!  My referral link is here if you'd like to try it out!
