Stitch Fix #9

I say it every time I get a new Fix – Stitch Fix is awesome.  It’s so much fun and I always find something I love.  TRY IT!!  And use my referral code when you do, please?

The boys are usually excited about Stitch Fix, but not on this day.  As you will see in the outtakes, W was in the midst of a meltdown (I still haven’t figured out why he was upset – something about me not carrying him up the stairs) and S was cranky and pantless.  I needed to check out by the following day so really wanted to try items on, but yikes, it was challenging.  Here goes…

I actually received something I’ve never gotten in a Fix before – SHOES!!  I thought these Dolce Vita Lettie Suede Cross Strap Wedges were so cute and I love the orangey coral color.  I happened to be wearing a dress in a similar color when I opened these so they went right on my feet.  These were pricey – much more than I’d typically pay for shoes.  But the straps were made from a soft suede and it was apparent that these were quality shoes (instead of the cheap ones I typically buy that have a tendency to fall apart in a few months).  KEPT

Don't even look at the mess behind me.

Oh hello white legs 
Next up was this Market & Spruce Nic Knit Dress.  I loved it on the hanger, but as soon as I put it on, it was a nope.  Way too clingy in the mid-section and really unflattering on my figure.  Other reviews of this dress all said it was very flattering so I guess it just wasn’t right for my body type.  I love the overall style and navy stripes and I think it looks adorable with a jean jacket and wedges, but sadly, I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing it.  RETURN KEPT

Next I tried on this Market & Spruce Cloay Sleeve Slit Knit striped top.  It’s hard to tell, but it had little slits in the sleeves, giving it a little something extra.  The horizontal stripes are probably not the most flattering, but if you know me, you know that I almost always keep anything long, loose, and striped.  So this was a no brainer for me.  And please excuse the awkward pose.  KEPT

The next item I pulled out of the box was a Daniel Rainn Sheera Split Neck Knit top.  I love Daniel Rainn – his blouses are always beautiful, often have a pretty floral pattern, and are perfect for work.  When I tried this on, I was on the fence.  I liked the overall style, but it had a slit in the front that definitely wouldn’t work for playing with the boys.  I’d also be self-conscious wearing it to work.  Nothing says unprofessional like cleavage.  However, when I looked back at the photos A had taken for me, I thought it looked cute on.  UNDECIDED KEPT

Finally, the Papermoon Verner Crochet Collar top.  I typically don’t wear sleeveless tops, but this was way too cute to cover up.  I loved the crochet detail on the straps.  This top was a bit thin and sheer, but I think I can get away with no cami underneath.  Not sure how I’d wear one anyway given the style of this.  I realize the shoes don’t match, but at this point, the boys were losing it and I was ready to be done.  I haven’t tried yet, but I think this top would look super cute with white skinny jeans and wedges. KEPT

 So here’s the deal, I asked A what he thought I should do – I could keep all 5 items and get 25% off or keep 3 items and the cost would be a difference of $30.  A told me to just keep it all and try to sell the dress.  So that’s what I did. J  My husband rocks.  And I’m glad I kept the Daniel Rainn top because I wore it to work a few days later with a cardigan (and cami underneath) and it made for a great outfit (at least I think so).

Annnnd meltdown mode…
