I scheduled a Stitch Fix box for this month, as I look forward to the eventuality of cooler weather! I kept seeing a pretty sleeveless blouse in my Shop, and requested it specially, but unfortunately didn’t receive it. I’m wondering if the Stitch Fix Stylists have a different “pool” of clothing to choose from, as my stylist did mention that she looked for the blouse first thing, but it was unavailable….but I was checking the shop daily, and it never went out of stock on my side. Hmm.
Okay, let’s jump into the review!
HAILEY 23 Meesha Faux Wrap Knit Dress – I started giggling as soon as I pulled this dress out of the box. Perhaps if I were an adorable five-foot-two? I could tell right away that this was made for a much shorter person than I, and wasn’t even inclined to try it on. But I had to see how absurd it looked, so here you go. It doesn’t look quite as early-00s-empire-waist as it felt, but still. This is not a dress I would be comfortable wearing in public. RETURNED.
MARKET & SPRUCE Quintana Colorblock Mesh Detail Pullover – This is pretty cute. I love the fall colors, and it’s a pretty thin knit, too, which is perfect for those cooler -but not cold- Arizona temperatures. The sleeves were a bit short, which is pretty much par for the course for me, and I’ve ended up growing quite fond of that slightly-shoved-up three-quarter-length look on myself, but I may exchange this for a size up for a more oversized look, which ended up fixing the sleeve length. KEPT?
PAPERMOON Larie Tie Sleeve Blouse – I was fairly certain that front length would end up looking ridiculous on me, but I’ve learned that with Stitch Fix, you have to try on all the things that you doubt, because you might end up being surprised! This actually ended up being pretty cute. KEPT?
KARL LAGERFELD PARIS Magdalyn Pearl Detail Button Down Blouse – This was a cute blouse, but something about it kept screaming “middle-aged housewife” at me. Maybe the length? It hits pretty much right at the widest part of my hips, which isn’t terribly flattering. And anyway, I daresay I am approaching middle-aged housewife status? In my head, though, I’m still twenty-three. If I had an office job I probably would have kept it and worn a cute cardigan over it. RETURNED.
PROSPERITY Lena Super Skinny Released Hem Jean – This was a pair of pretty basic jeans, and for once they are actually long enough for me! However, I’m just not in need of new jeans at this time, and these gaped a bit in the waist, which made returning them a no-brainer. I don’t have a dedicated photo for these as they are in all the other pictures. RETURNED.
I’m disappointed I didn’t get to try the blouse I asked for, but I don’t want to lose my $20 stylist fee so I’m currently trying to decide between keeping the sweater or that dotted blouse. Leave a comment and help me choose???
