I have received too many wonderful items to count from my amazing Stitch Fix stylist, Sara. This was my first box that shipped after I started using the app and I immediately peeked when my fix shipped. I had an amazing box #24 and could not wait to see what this box would bring! I had pinned a few feminine and simple items on my Pinterest board: a pleated pink top, white skinnies, a light blue blazer, a polka dot rain jacket, and a pretty zip-top tote. In this fix, I asked for white skinny jeans and fun items to wear to a music festival I am attending this month in Savannah.
I peeked as soon as I received the email that my fix had shipped and was immediately disappointed. I did not get my skinnies (because they were out of stock) or any of the other items on my wish list. Peeking has its advantages though, because I was able to order some white skinnies that will be here before we leave on our trip! I know Stitch Fix cannot always deliver specific requests, so peeking saved the day in this case!
Sadly, I returned everything this fix. This is only the second time this has occurred. Just when I thought my stylist and the algorithm had my style nailed down, I’m back to wondering what went wrong.
Here is my fix below:
Now that you have seen the box, let’s try on the clothes!
Level 99 Jolie Distressed Straight Leg Jean $118
These jeans were straight leg, so the fit was baggy and they were a little too big in the waist. The Level 99 jeans I have purchased in the past stretch out at least one size with normal wear, so these are a no go. I also think these are overly distressed and the hemline is a too ragged for my taste. The grunge look just is not me! On a fun note, check out these Jeffrey Campbell Taggart booties I scored from Anthropologie! These are amazing and I cannot wait for warmer weather to take them out on the town! SENT BACK!
Loveappella Caly Cold Shoulder Crochet Detail Knit Top $58
This top is a mile outside my style comfort zone. I’ve intentionally given cold shoulder tops the cold shoulder and not pinned any of them on Pinterest for fear of receiving one. It did not work out! I styled it as suggested by my stylist with booties and the distressed Level 99 jeans. SENT BACK!
Street Level Parvin Reversible Tote $58
My stylist suggested I pair this cute, reversible tote with the above outfit. The mint and white color combination is cute, but I decided against keeping this tote because I dislike how you can see black where it comes together. I’m picky about my purses. Quality and versatility are the two most important things I evaluate before making the purchase. SENT BACK!
Market & Spruce Casola Cargo Jacket $78
I requested this jacket on my Pinterest board during cooler weather days. It is okay, but I’m not crazy about the pattern or cargo pockets in person and it is a little too thin to function as a jacket. Overall, I think I’m in a Spring mood now and this is too Fall for my taste. SENT BACK!
41 Hawthorn Lisbon Stud Detail Blouse $58
This is a basic black top with a little flare. It fits well and looks cute with Emers from a previous fix. However, it is sheer and needs a camisole underneath. Layering and synthetic fabric = sweating and I do not like to be hot. Also, I have a few black tops I LOVE and this one was just okay to me. I do think this is a fun top if it is your style and the best piece in my box. SENT BACK!
So, I always try to think of how to improve fixes when I get an undesirable box. I cannot think of I did anything that caused this fix to be completely off-base with my style other than saying I was going to a music festival. I intentionally avoid pinning super distressed denim and cold shoulder tops because these trends are not things I would wear. I was direct and honest with my feedback this time and I did request to keep my stylist. I told her to avoid super distressed denim, drab colors, questionable fashion comebacks, cheap crochet details, and BOLD florals in future fixes. I’m hopeful this will clear up any confusion about my style and lead to better fixes in the future. I know Sara is a great stylist and LOVE that she writes sweet, personal notes and pays attention to my blog and Pinterest boards. She is a gem even if this fix was not my favorite.
Until the next Fix,
