It’s time for another Stitch Fix!
I’ve been looking forward to this fix all month. With the weather changing, I’m desperately in need of some spring and summer work clothes since I won’t be wearing sweaters anymore. In my note, I asked for work tops with short or 3/4 sleeves, a pair of the Margaret M Emer pants, and a bag if she could find one. Here’s my fix!
Item 1 – 41HAWTHORN Queensland Dolman Jersey Top – XL – $48
I admit, when I get the shipping notification for my fix, I always go in and take a peek at what I’m getting… and was disappointed to see this. I’ve gotten dolman tops in the past and NEVER liked them (see here and here). I have put in my stylist note that I don’t like them too, so I really hate that they keep coming. As expected, I didn’t like this piece. The sleeves are just terrible on me. That said, I did really like the material – it was really soft, and in a different cut would be great. Verdict: Sent Back.
Item 2 – MARGARET M – Emer Jacquard Print High Waisted Cropped Pant – L – $98
I got my first pair of these pants a while back (here) and ended up sending them back. Since I’ve lost weight since then, I asked for these in a larger rather than extra large, and they fit perfectly (yay!). These fit really well, are work appropriate… and feel like yoga pants. The pattern is subtle and I don’t have anything else like them. I’m leaning toward keeping them, but not 100% sure yet. I’m wearing them in all of these photos. Thoughts? Verdict: Undecided – UPDATE – KEPT!
Item 3 – FUN2FUN – Marlena Abstract Print Tab Sleeve Blouse – XL – $48
This top is really cute – I actually love the pattern and I’m always a big fan of tab sleeves. It’s perfect for work. However, this top just couldn’t contain my chest and was way too snug. It’s a bummer, because if it had fit well, I probably would have kept it. Verdict: Sent Back.
Item 4 – MARKET & SPRUCE Colibri Floral Print Sleeveless Top – XL – $44
So this is another item I was leery of when I peeked. I’m not really big into florals, and I had asked for no sleeveless. I still tried it on though… and it’s just not for me. It’s too snug up top (typical) and the neckline is cut a little funny. Just not a winner. I did like the vibrant pink, but that’s about it. Verdict: Sent Back.
Item 5 – URBAN EXPRESSIONS Bridget Woven Detail Bowler Bag – $48
I really need a new everyday bag, so I was excited to see this coming. Guys, this bag is gorgeous. Bright teal, great detailing, and great price. It also has a crossbody strap and I love those. The only problem? This bag is HUGE. Seriously, it could fit my laptop in there! I’m so torn on this one. I love the bag and think it’s so pretty, but I’m just not sure how much I’d use it. It would make a great bag for the conference I’m going to in June, and any future ones, but I’m just not sure that’s enough usage to justify keeping it. Help! Verdict: Undecided – UPDATE – KEPT!
I’m really torn on this fix. I love the detailing in the bag and pants, but I really needed some work tops and am frustrated by the fact that none of them were right for me – especially after I asked for no more dolmans. I love Stitch Fix, but I’m thinking it’s time to ask for a new stylist – maybe I’ll find one that will get me a little more. What do you think?
