Stitch Fix Friday

by Meghann on June 6, 2014

It’s here!

Well, actually it came last week, but “it came!” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. 😉

Fun fact: Did you know when you receive the notice that “your Fix has shipped” you can log into your account and see what was shipped in your check-out cart? It only provides descriptions – not photos – but it doesn’t stop me from googling each item to try and dissect what I’m receiving.

Me? Impatient? I have no idea what you’re talking about.

And, just like opening a present I already knew about on Christmas morning, it doesn’t stop the arrival of the Stitch Fix box from being less exciting or special.

Last month’s fix was the best yet. I kept every item and have worn them all a handful of times in the month since I’ve had them. I wondered how this month’s picks would compete?

Let’s see, shall we.

First up, Level 99 Patrick Cropped Chino Pant

My stylist had warned me in her description that she knew I didn’t “super love” light colored pants (she’s right, I don’t), but she assured me these were “so flattering and versatile.” I had my doubts, especially after just receiving a pair of light blue skinny jeans in my last shipment, but I tried them on anyway and was immediately struck by how comfortable and flattering the pants were. The material was super soft with a little stretch to it – I wore them to work an felt like I had pajamas on the whole time! I only wish they weren’t such a similar color to my last pair of jeans, simply because I already own the other pair.

Under Skies Tory Textured Button Front Shirt

Love this shirt. Love the light color, airy material, and loose fit. I paired it with the Patrick Cropped Chinos above for an ultra-comfy workplace combo.

Yumi Jodie Chambray Dot Print Fit and Flare Dress

This was the first item that immediately grabbed my attention from the fix. The polka dots were just too cute for words. Granted, I already own three blue polka dresses, but what’s one more? The dress fit like a glove and will look great at my sister’s baby shower next month. I’m already hunting down a yellow bauble necklace to pair with it.

Renee C Malcom Abstract Chevron Dolman Sleeve Top

(I’m telling you – 95% bathroom selfies)

This was my wildcard. The pattern didn’t “wow” me when I first saw it and I was afraid the fit would go either way. Definitely not something I would have picked out for myself, but I tried it on with a pair of dark skinny jeans and loved it. The top was ridiculously comfortable and the longer I looked at the pattern, the more I liked it, especially when paired with a fun, bright necklace.

Urban Expressions Booker Fold Over Crossbody Bag with Zip Detail

Yes, this is “the bag” from my San Diego trip last week. I’m pretty sure I’ve never received so many emails/comments about one bag before. I’m glad you guys like it – I do, too. I was immediately drawn to the bright color, big size, and crossover body strap. It took me a day of wearing and adjusting to find the right length, though.

That’s better.

The bag is great. Not only is it cute, but also functional. It held my heavy DSLR + extra lens all weekend and was great for traveling. I love all the hidden, fun pockets. This is hands down the best thing I’ve received from any Stitch Fix I’ve received.

So there you have it. My five items from this month’s haul. Can you guess what I kept and what I returned? Well, since I pretty much referenced wearing everything up there for work, it’s safe to assume I kept it all. Or I wore it all and then sent it back. If that’s the case we’ll just keep that between you and me, mmmkay? 😉

What would you have kept and what would you have returned?
