This was a fun Stitch Fix to unbox! Look at all those lovely fall colors. For this one, I’d asked for some stable business casual workwear pieces, and my stylist delivered!
First up was this rather disappointing top. It’s fine. There’s nothing wrong with it, really. (And ignore the unflattering camera angle.) But it screamed “cheap fast fashion” to me, especially with this fabric:
You know this fabric. We all know this fabric. It’s soft and comfortable, and looks old and worn and pilly by the end of the first washing. Nope. Returned.
I don’t look especially happy with this sweater (and please ignore my dusty mirror!) but I was actually surprised by how much I liked it! It’s soft and fits well, and the color is flattering on my skintone, and the curved hem (which I thought I would hate!) works out well for leaving it untucked, or a front-tuck. Additionally, it’s a thin knit, not too heavy for Arizona winters. I’m keeping this one.
The color of this top was difficult to capture! In real-life, it’s got more of a peacock-green hue to it, which I adored. But it’s quite short on the sides, and flashes torso every time I raise my arm. Which, for workwear, is a no-go. Returned.
I actually own this jacket in black and I LOVE it. It goes with literally everything, and I wear it at least two-three times a week. It’s a pretty soft, stretchy, comfy fabric, but it looks profesh. AND it has pockets for holding my work keys, because work pants never have pockets. I returned this because I wasn’t sure about the olive color, but now that I look at these pictures I’m kinda digging it. Oh, well. It wasn’t cheap at $88, and I’m sure I can locate it on Poshmark or ebay for half-price if I change my mind.
The pants that I’m wearing in all these photos were also included in my fix. They are (hallelujah!) long enough for me, but the size is clearly too big for me. I’m exchanging them for a smaller size, because they are comfy and stretchy and I think I’ll get a TON of really good use out of them.
Stitch Fix gave me a limited-time referral to give you $100 for your first Fix, if you want to try it out! Here it is:
