It's fix reveal day (again)! One of my favorite days! There were a couple months where I didn't post at all about Stitch Fix and now within like two-three weeks, I have three posts. Goodness, I better slow down my spending ;)
A couple fixes ago, I had requested a new stylist. While I did like my old stylist, I felt like she was thisclose to nailing my actual style. I always liked the things she sent me, but they just weren't quite me. So, I requested Desiree's stylist, Raquel. I always LOVE everything that Desiree gets in her fixes and figured that if we had a similar style, that Raquel would surely hit the nail on the head for me too. And sure enough.... SHE DID! Check out my FIRST 5/5 fix here!
Market & Spruce | Wilco Solid Quilted Vest
Size : L | Color : Dark Green | $68
This vest may look familiar to some of you. Yes, it is the same vest that I got in my last fix. I decided last minute that I didn't need to spend the money on a vest and decided to return it. And then had immediate returner's remorse. Now, I'm not even sure that's a thing, but I was seriously mad at myself for returning it. So, in my note to my stylist, I begged and asked her to please send it back to me, but in a larger size so I could feel comfortable zipping it up all the way (since the medium was tight in the bust area). Well, again, I loved it, and again, I returned it. Yep, I am THAT crazy person. I still love it. I still wish I kept it. BUT I decided that for the money, and living in Southern California, that I wouldn't wear it enough. Being a responsible adult is hard sometimes. (#firstworldproblems)
Verdict : Returned. Again.
Kut from the Kloth | Connie Frayed Hem Skinny Jeans
Size : 10 | Color : Blue | $88
Verdict : Returned.
Loveappella | Harriett Woven Hem Knit Top
Size : M | Color : Navy | $44
When I pulled this shirt out of the box, I LOVED it. I mean, look at the bottom portion?! YES. It's almost like two shirts in one because the top is a plain dark blue and then the bottom is floral. All the heart eyes! But then I tried it on... and it was a little tighter/more form fitting than I would prefer. It was also a bit shorter than I like. I thought about exchanging it for a larger size, but I don't think you can return things if you change them, and I didn't know if it would fit right, so I opted to return it. Had it not been for some fit issues, this is totally me!
Verdict : Returned.
Kut from the Kloth | Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jeans
Size : 10 | Color : Blue | $78
THESE JEANS. They aren't quite my beloved Kut from the Kloth skinny jeans, but they are pretty amazing! I had been asking for some distressed jeans for forever and I was super excited to see that these were in my fix. Not only are they KFTK but they have slight distressing. I don't really know how much is too much, but I don't want a huge hole in my pants, so this seemed like a good amount of distressing to me. Of course these jeans fit perfectly as all other KFTK jeans do. I was a little apprehensive at first because I've been wearing and loving skinny jeans so much lately, but after some texting with Desiree, she convinced me that these would be super versatile and so I just knew I had to keep them. I've already worn them three times this week... and it's only Wednesday. So, needless to say, I love them!
Verdict : Kept!
Ink Love & Peace | Calyn Cowl Neck Knit Top
Size : M | Color : Dark Purple | $64
When I first pulled this shirt out of the box, I had mixed feelings.
First thoughts, I LOVE this color! The purple color is perfect and I love that it had thumb holes. And then I tried it on with jeans and it seemed ehh. I didn't love the draw string at the bottom and the top cowl neck laid weird. I thought, I'm sending this back for sure!
Second thoughts, I tried it on with leggings and loved it! It made it more athleisure and I loved the look. I thought, I can wear this every Sunday! And then I looked at the price again and... buzz kill. I cannot spend $64 on athleisure, so back it went.
Verdict : Returned. Sadly.
I tried to be really good with this fix and really only keep something I KNEW I would wear a lot. I probably shouldn't admit this (sorry Seth!), but I feel like sometimes I get so caught up in the "ooohhh it's Stitch Fix! It's amazing!" thing that I keep things that I don't reach for often (or at all). These clothes are expensive and I need to REALLY think about what I'm buying when I buy it and make sure it's going to be something I wear all the time - like the jeans. I've DEFINITELY gotten my money's worth out of my KFTK skinnies and now even the distressed jeans too. I'm pretty excited for future boxes though and to get some new short sleeve shirts and some shorts for summer. Stitch Fix has a way of always finding the perfect fitting bottoms, something I can NEVER do myself.
Bring on my next fix!
Do you agree with my choices? Should I have kept anything that I sent back?
