My latest Stitch Fix was great! I’m so impressed with the clothes I’ve gotten. The style is usually right on. This time around, I made up my mind that I would only keep 2 items max. With the recent holidays, I definitely didn’t need anything. As soon as I opened the box, I knew it was going to be a tough decision. Forgive the horrible pictures. They were taken after a long day and with a phone so they definitely don’t do the clothing any justice.
First up, the Octavia Alana Plaid and Houndstooth Infinity Scarf and Market & Spruce Wilco Quilted Vest. In theory, this reversible scarf was amazing. It had a black and white houndstooth print on one side and a navy and green plaid on the other. I loved the idea of it. But after trying it on, I felt like it was swallowing me. It was just too big and bulky and I didn’t love the material – I’m very picky about scarves and can’t stand to have anything remotely itchy touching my neck. Sadly, this just didn’t work for me. The vest on the other hand, I loved. For some reason it looks like a strange grayish shade in the photos, but in person it’s a pretty dark green. Something I wouldn’t have selected for myself, but I really liked it on.

Finally, the 41Hawthorne Montreal Henley Blouse. I really liked this blouse and it’s totally my style. BUT I already have a couple very similar black and white blouses. When I asked A for his opinion, he told me the pattern reminded him of the piranha plants in Super Mario. And that’s why I will never ask for his fashion advice again. Just kidding. Because I had similar blouses, this also went back.
I kept 2 items as that was my original plan. It was a very tough decision and I actually tried on each of these items more than one (except for the scarf – that just wasn’t working for me).
