Third Time’s a Charm

by Meghann on April 3, 2014

My third Stitch Fix arrived at the end of March and I have to say, this was my favorite fix yet.

(Check out my first fix and second fix)

Here’s what was inside:

1.  Angie Tenessy Chevron Print Maxi Dress

IMG_20140326_073412

My stylist was spot on when she wrote “I know you love maxi dresses” (I do!). If it were up to me my whole closet would be full of them and I would wear nothing but maxi dresses all spring and summer. I just love how comfortable and easy they are; this dress was no exception. I loved the orange chevron, the soft cotton material, and the casual fit. I’ve had it for two weeks and have already worn it to work (paired with a gray cardigan) and to Disney for a casual day at Epcot.

Sangria

This dress was a winner and a definite “keep.”

2. Angie Allana Printed Mini Skirt

I have to be honest, I wasn’t sure I’d like this skirt. It’s not like anything I currently own and I wasn’t sure I could pull it off. However, it only took about a minute of playing dress-up in my closet and I was sold. The skirt is made of a soft cotton material that’s perfect for spring or summer. It’s also very flattering thanks to the elastic waistband that gives a little in the back. I paired the skirt with a long sleeve white cotton shirt, maroon belt, and sandals for work (business casual at its finest).

Then a tank top, scarf, and hat for more of a casual look (planning on wearing this over the weekend).

Keep!

3. 411Hawthorn Printed Dolman Sleeve Top

Another item that surprised me. I’ve seen this style of shirt floating around, but have never tried one on myself. I braced myself for the worst, but was pleasantly surprised with how flattering and comfortable the fit was. I was also a fan of the length. The shirt was long and could easily be paired with leggings for an ultra-comfy outfit.

Keep!

4. Kensie Jeans Kaleigh Ankle Biter Jean

I’m still not 100% sold on light jeans. I like the idea of them, but I think they may bring a little too much attention to my “muscular legs.” However, I really loved the fit of the pants and thought they were really comfortable. It’s rare to find jeans that are the right length on my legs and hit my waist at just the right spot.

Keep

5. Zad Katelyn Layered Geometric Necklace

I’m a fan of longer necklaces and really like how simply and easy this one is. It works with almost everything.

Keep.

So did you catch all that? I had a Stitch Fix first this month – I kept all 5 items! Since I opted to keep all 5, I received a 25% discount on my total order  (which is equivalent to receiving the pair of jeans for free!). Sweet.

What they say is true, the fixes do get better as time goes on. I think the trick is leaving very detailed feedback on why you liked and didn’t like certain things.

What would you have kept and returned in the fix?

Oh my gosh, I loved everything on you! I think my FAVORITES were the maxi dress (especially how you styled it for work) and the necklace. I’m LOVING fun accessories right now. Super cute!

Loved your fix! Unfortunately, mine this month (also my third) was SO awful, despite my updated Pinterest board. Check it out: seriously bad http://lolaandzoe.blogspot.com/2014/04/april-2014-stitch-fix-review.html

Everything looks great on you! I got a dolman sleeve shirt in my last fix. I wasn’t sure about it, but it really is comfy and flattering. Plus, when I wear it, I around pretending to be a flying squirrel. 😀

I think I need to invest in a couple maxi dresses for the Texas summer. I’m always on the look out for more spring/summer clothes.

I just had my first fix recently and it wasn’t such a hit. I know it should get better with time, so I’m trying to keep an open mind!

I’ve tried Stitch Fix three times, and I didn’t have much success with any of the boxes. This fix makes me want to give it another try. Love that skirt!

Nice! My third stitch fix is scheduled, so I’m hoping to have the same success. The jeans are crazy flattering. The maxi dress is great. Do you mind that it’s a lot like the other black and white maxi they sent you?

I love that Maxi dress, it looks so good on you! I would have kept everything, especially as the jeans ended up being free, great if you’re not 100% on them! I’m struggling with the smart but not to smart, but appropriate for Japan dress code at my workplace, I wish Stitch Fix shipped internationally, I could really do with the help!

I got Kensie jeans in my last fix that I really like, too! I was shocked – what are the odds a pair of jeans out of a box actually fit you!?
