My February Stitch Fix was probably one of my most exciting and disappointing fixes yet. It was dramatic. I laughed, I cried…ok, maybe not. I always kinda sneak and see what I have coming when I get the notification, and I was pretty excited to see that I couldn’t google lots of what was coming. It wasn’t popping up in other people’s fixes. New stuff!!
When I got my box, I was so excited to see the blues. I love the color palate that was chosen this month. Loving these blues!! When I opened the box I genuinely thought this would be the month that I’d buy everything in the box. This was the laughing part. I was so happy! I mean check these colors out!
So, before I go any further let me give you a run down of what Stitch Fix is. Stitchfix is an online styling service. You get your own personal stylist who handpicks a “fix” for you with five items. You get either clothing or accessories that are unique to your budget, and tastes. You’ll get three days to decide if you’re going to keep anything from your fix. The styling fee is $20 and that goes towards any purchase you end up making. If you buy all 5 you get 25% off the entire order. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s so fun. You can sign up to get fixes whenever you want, or get them sent to you monthly, even bi-weekly. It’s perfect for a busy mom like me who has no time to shop for clothes. You can learn more about signing up for your first fix here!
Here’s what I got:
Urban Expressions Maxwell Braided Zip Bottom Tote $48.00
I had requested again another purse. I think I’m done requesting purses for now. I asked for one that would be big enough to also be used as a diaper bag since I now have a 5 month old. They obliged but it wasn’t my thing. I wanted to like it. I wanted the third time to be the charm, but charmed I was not. I didn’t mind the blue, I actually think I liked the blue. I think it was the brass fittings, and the over all style of the bag. Genuinely, I’m not sure. I didn’t love it. Verdict: Returned
Bovina Dolman Knit Top $58.00
I had a love/hate relationship with this top. Sometimes I liked it, then other times I felt like it added 15lbs to my frame. I also wasn’t sure about the bottom half of the back being different fabric than the rest of the top. Being so unsure about it made me not want to spend almost $60 on it. Verdict: Returned
Laila Jayde Arvin Knit Top $54.00
I don’t even know where to begin with this top. I’m going to be real with you guys. Since my last Fix, I lost 10lbs. I’m slowly working towards my pre-pregger weight, and this top makes me look bigger than I did last month. It easily added 20lbs to the way I look. On top of that, it was weird and see through. I struggled to find something appropriate to wear underneath it and the style cards were no help. They didn’t even mention about wearing something under it. I threw on the nude cami that I got in my January Fix just to keep this family friendly. It also flared out in some weird way…this was beyond fail. I think maybe this shirt was meant for someone who was petite. It really didn’t flatter AT ALL. Verdict: GTFO
Kut from the Kloth Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jean $78.00
These jeans were a hard decision. They fit very nicely, and I felt they were very flattering. They were just right in regards to fit. Not too snug, not too lose. That alone would have convinced me these needed to stay. My husband and my best friend though were my voice of reason. Reason 1: They had holes in them. At some point or another all my jeans end up with holes, I garden, I hike, and I play with my kids. It just happens. To purchase jeans with pre-made holes just didn’t make sense. Reason 2: I’m in the process of losing weight. In another month or two those jeans will hopefully be too big. So then I’d have baggy jeans with holes in them. Verdict: Returned
Berneen Printed Dolman Sleeve Top $58.00
There you go! Now you might be able to tell I’ve shed a little weight since last month. With a sea of no’s I think I finally found my yes. This is very similar to 41 Hawthorn Dolman top I got a few months ago. I loved the Navy and Teal colors, and the pattern was interesting with out being over powering. Easily dressed up for work, or worn with jeans for casual. Finally, something in this fix that was flattering and sensible. Verdict: Kept
I had such high hopes for this fix. I loved the colors, but I felt like nothing was fitting together until the last top. It may surprise you, but I requested the same stylist again next month. I asked her to look at my blog (hi!), and I hope that the potential I see shows next month.
