It’s Stitch Fix Friday! I first tried Stitch Fix a couple of months ago, and ended up with a fun printed top I have been wearing quite a bit this summer. This time around I tried to give more details about my style preferences and specifically, a few key items I’ve been missing in my wardrobe:
“I almost always prefer bold, jewel-toned colors near my face or soft neutrals. I have reddish-brown hair, green eyes, and fair skin. Working from home these days, so comfy and versatile chic is best. Items I could use: jean jacket, chambray shirt, printed shorts, a neutral cross-body bag, bracelet sets.”
Here’s what my stylist Noemi picked for me!
Pomelo Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 Blouse, $58
Pros: The jewel-toned color is something I would wear in a heartbeat. I like the split v-neck and the texture detail on the front.
Cons: I am indifferent towards the nail-head trim look on the torso, but I HATE it on the sleeves. Not a fan of the poofy sleeve thing either – feels too girly for me.
Conclusion: Pass. I would never try this on in a store let alone pay $58 for it.
Just Black Nolan Ankle Skinny Jean, $58.00
Pros: I’ve been considering white jeans for a while. They are the right size (though a bit snug), and are stretchy. The price point is great for a pair of pants. Bonus points for being made in the USA!
Cons: I’m still not sure if I can rock white jeans on a regular basis. They definitely in the “jegging” category of jeans, so what do I wear underneath to make them smooth?
Conclusion: Undecided, leaning towards “probably not.” Help!
Just Black Trudie Medium Wash Distressed Jacket, $58
Pros: My stylist listened, and it’s a nice color.
Cons: Too late – I just found a great jean jacket in a great color (lighter) and fit at the GAP outlet while on vacation for $25.
Olive & Oak Robyn Striped Pocket-Front Cardigan, $38
Pros: I LOVE a good cardigan! It is navy and white, totally classic and versatile and up my alley. I don’t own a striped cardigan, the fit is great, and the material is lightweight and comfortable. The price point is right when considering my styling fee.
Cons: I already own a significant cardigan collection and I worry how much wear I’ll get out of it.
Conclusion: Undecided, leaning towards yes. Help!
Pixley Jakobe Chevron Print Maxi Dress, $78
Pros: I love the colors and print. The material is comfortable.
Cons: The fit isn’t the most flattering. I struggle to create a waist to begin with, so the draping makes me feel boxy. I would probably never pay $78 for a maxi dress because I know I can snag something similar at Marshall’s or TJ Maxx for $40 or less.
Conclusion: Sadly, pass.
Considering I only had two of my last style requests addressed, I’m not thrilled with my over all picks and at this point I’m doubting if I’ll try it again. With the $20 styling fee, I feel obligated to keep one piece and the Olive & Oak seems like it will be what I would wear the most into the fall. What do you think I should keep and why? Or should I send it all back and call it a loss?
