I was so excited to get my 3rd Stitch Fix… I really get a kick out of a box of surprise clothing showing up at my house! But if I’m going to be completely honest, I was a little disappointed this time around. Let’s just jump in, okay?
TRACE SPLIT-NECK POCKET FRONT BLOUSE – $58
This shirt is just…well, weird. It hangs funny, it is super wrinkly and I don’t know if it’s supposed to be that way or if it’s going to require a lot of ironing, it’s white and dry-clean only and I’m a mother of a toddler… Oh, and the biggest problem is that it is SUPER DUPER SHEER! I wore a tank under it for this, which I could always do, but the other strikes against it make me think this one is a RETURN.
ZULA CONTRAST POLKA DOT OPEN CARDIGAN – $78
This cardigan has the potential to be cute, but I think I don’t really care for that much floppy material dangling in front of me. I have a cardigan that is a knit material that kind of drapes that way, it’s okay but I’ve found it has the potential to annoy me sometimes. Add in the weight of a sweater and it annoyed me right from putting it on. So this one will have to be RETURN.
BURRINGTON HEATHERED KNIT HI-LO SWEATER – $68
I like the way this one feels and the way it hangs. I don’t have anything this color, so that’s a bonus. I loved that my Stitch Fix stylist recommended that I pair it with my blue polka dot pants, so that’s what I did! But as I was trying it on, I was kind of aware that it was just under 70° outside, I live in Las Vegas and it’s getting warmer… buying sweaters at this time of year is probably not wise as I wouldn’t get much use out of them for a while. So I’m being prudent in this regard and this one will be RETURN.
KATE DISTRESSED BOYFRIEND JEAN – $78
I was super excited to try these on and they’re definitely the best fitting “boyfriend” jean I’ve ever tried on…
However, there are a couple of fit issues that I worry about. The waist is pretty big and I worry that as the jeans loosened up during the day that the waist might feel even worse. And due to the waist being larger, if I crouch down they give me a lovely case of coin-slot… which is a terrible look on everyone! So because of this, I think they are RETURN. (boo hoo)
They also sent me a cute little necklace, it’s a dainty little thing that clocks in at $48 and I just don’t think it’s worth the price and I have plenty of other necklaces that are similar in theme. So that one is a RETURN too. [Photo of necklace added 2/28/2014]
So add that up… not a single KEEP? WAH… but that’s okay, I will still order another Fix. Maybe give it a couple of months and see what they can come up with me for warm (aka hot) Las Vegas summers!
