Happy Monday! Let’s start it out with something fun and get to my latest Stitch Fix, shall we? If you’re new to Stitch Fix, it’s a subscription box service for clothes… and something that’s truly changed my closet! Details are at the bottom of the post!
Pixley Leevie Dress – XL – $78.00
I was really surprised to see this dress in my fix, to be honest. Darla sent it along as an option for holiday parties, and I love that she’s thinking ahead like that for me… but honestly, we almost never go to fancy parties! This was super cute and I loved the sparkly sequined shoulders. I definitely don’t have anything like it, and it was really fun to try on something different. That said, I thought it fit a little weird around the top – too snug on my bust (common for me), and that armholes were too big. If we had anything fancy coming up, I might have thought about keeping it since it’s so fun, but it just wasn’t practical to keep it combined with the fit issues. Verdict: Returned.
Mystree Jackie Striped French Terry Asymmetrical Jacket – XL – $78.00
This jacket was cute and fit really well. It’s a great color and the stripes add some visual interest, but I just didn’t see myself wearing it a lot. The only place I’d really wear something like this is at work, and it’s usually not somewhere I’d keep a jacket during the day, so it would really just be keeping my chair warm. It just wasn’t me. Verdict: Returned.
Staccato Madrid Mixed Material Knit Top – XL – $54.00
This shirt really confused me at first. The gray part is soft and stretchy, while the plaid is a stiffer, more structured fabric. I didn’t really like this at all. I really felt like it was trying to be two different shirts, and I think it made me look wider where the plaid hit on my sides. Verdict: Returned.
Pixley Nilla Button Back Sweater – XL – $68.00
This sweater… it was probably the biggest disappointment of my fix. I really wanted to love this, but it was HUGE on me. HUGE. Otherwise, it was exactly me – soft, comfortable, and had a cute detail with the button back. I thought about asking customer service to exchange it for a large, but I wasn’t even sure a large would fit right, and you can’t return exchanges. I think if this had fit properly, I’d be wearing it right now. Verdict: Returned.
Liverpool Loren Bootcut Jean – 12/31P – $78.00
In the note on my last fix, Darla asked if I’d like to try some bootcut jeans since I had some pinned. You guys, in high school and college, I LIVED in bootcut jeans (I think we all did.). I’m so excited that they’re coming back in style since I definitely like how they balance out my frame. And these ones? They’re the softest jeans ever. I didn’t know a pair of jeans could be this soft! They also fit perfectly since Darla knew to get me a petite, and I’ve already worn them! Verdict: Kept!
That’s a wrap on November’s fix! Even though I only kept one item, I do feel it was a great fix – my wallet doesn’t need me keeping everything all the time, right?
