Stitch Fix #6

Stitch Fix #6 came in December, but the post is coming a month late!

These pictures are all taken from far away in the bathroom mirror, so I apologize for the quality!

Right away, I was disappointed when I opened this box.  I had requested only long-sleeved tops, and this box contained: 1 long-sleeved top, 1 distressed cardigan, 1 pair of jeans, 1 sleeveless top, and 1 dress.  Not a good start.   

The first thing I tried on was the "Fierro" Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater from Market and Spruce ($58):

I was so close to keeping this one!  It fit well - comfy and a bit loose - and I loved the elbow patches. The color was great, too!  Unfortunately, it was itchy.  :(  I was so sad, because everything else about it was keepable.  I knew I wouldn't wear it, though, with that material.  

Next up was one that I liked the look of (polka dots!).  This is Amour Vert's "Balboa" Dot Print Racerback Silk Tank ($44). 

Nope.   The pictures can't convey how ill-fitting this was.  The top had to be constantly adjusted so as to not show my bra and it sat on my hips instead of flowing smoothly.  The cute polka dot print couldn't save it.  

Next up, Sweet Rain's "Macy" Distressed Cardigan ($68):

Not my style.  The pictures can't quite show it, but the front had tears - on purpose - and the back had a chiffon insert that ruined it.  The knit part of the back ended at my natural waist and the chiffon part started below that, but the way it fell on my body was not flattering. 

Next up was a pair of jeans.  Kut From The Kloth's "Simmons" Bootcut Jeans ($78):

They weren't flattering, and - surprise! - they were too long.  Nope.  If I'm going to buy a pair of jeans, they need to be great. 

The last item was a dress, which was a surprise since I had asked for just tops.  The "Felix" Short Sleeve Space Dye Knit Dress from THML ($44):

(Sigh).  From the front, it actually looked like it fit okay, though it wasn't a style I liked.  From the back, though, you could see all the problems.  Not good at all. 

I sent everything back from this box.  I would have kept that first sweater if the material hadn't been so itchy, but I just couldn't do it - it would never have been worn.

I'm giving them another chance, though!
