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

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.
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.
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). J
