Stitch Fix #11

Stitch Fix is a personal shopper service that I've enjoyed for a while now.  (I hate shopping for clothes for myself!)  You pay a $20 styling fee for each Fix, and 5 items are sent to you.  You can request certain kinds of items, and they're sent based on a sizing & style profile that you fill out beforehand.  You can even request a certain price range for each type of item ("as cheap as possible" for jewelry, $50-$100 for pants, etc).  The $20 is applied to anything you purchase from your Fix, and if you buy the entire box you get a 25% discount.  (If you don't buy anything, you lose the $20.)

For Fix #11 I had the same request I've had for the last few boxes - easy summer tops (no ironing) that would show off my waist.

First up was the "Abrianna" Longsleeve Knit Cardigan from 41Hawthorn ($48):

Long sleeves.  Not exactly what I was looking for when I requested "summer tops," but I can always use cardigans for work.  This one, though, was highlighter yellow.  It was also too long and clung to my bottom in an unflattering way.  Sent it back.

Next up was Market & Spruce's "Sam" Hi-Lo Tee ($44):

This was just... okay.  Not too bad from the front (and I liked the color), but not good from the back.  It wasn't a soft fabric, so the fit in the back combined with the scratchiness meant it was a "no."

Next out of the box was the "Page" Flutter Sleeve Blouse from Skies are Blue ($48):

A pretty print can't make up for a circus tent fit.  This made me look huge.  It certainly didn't fit the "show off my waist" request. 

Papermoon's "Watford" Knit Top ($44) was next:

I was so close to keeping this one!  I liked the colors and the solid/print mix.  It was a really light, comfy material, also.  The one little thing that bothered me was that little points formed where the two materials met anytime my arms were down.  And since I had already decided I could only keep one shirt, this one was sent back. 

Last up was Papermoon's "Lucasta" Knit Top ($38):

Yay!!  I loved this one.  And once again, it's something I never would have picked out for myself.  It's really soft and comfy, and the cuffs on the sleeves are a nice pop of color against the navy & white. 

I still have my June Fix to post about, and I'm looking forward to my July Fix in just a few days!

If you'd like to try Stitch Fix for yourself, I'd love for you to use my referral link.  (I'd get a credit if you order a box!)
