I had put my Stitch Fix on hold for quite some time, because I am attempting to save money this year. However, after our tax return came in, and I was sick of all of my work shirts (does this happen to anyone else?), I decided to give them a chance to perk up my wardrobe. I requested some tops for work that were comfortable but work appropriate. Check out my current Stitch Fix Review.
(Disclaimer: These pictures are terrible. The lighting wasn’t right and, while I am quite pale, I think these photos wash me out even more than normal.)
Plaid Layer Sweater
The Benzer Plaid Layer Sweater by Pixley was comfortable, but strange. See the layered plaid shirt underneath? I don’t like that it doesn’t continue at the top. If I were actually wearing a plaid shirt under a sweater, the collar would be coming out the top. The sweater material was also itchy and thin. At $64, this top went back.
Dolman Sleeve Knit Top
I literally said, “EW!” as I pulled this Sawyer Space Dye Dolman Sleeve Knit Top by Market & Spruce out of the box. The list claims the color is “Olive,” but it looks like a poor representation of camouflage. I am not a fan of camo in any color, and while I liked the fit of this top, there was no way I was going to wear it in that hideous color. The price was $58, and this top went back as well.
I am sucking in my muffin top HARD in this picture. Why? Because this Atticus Pointelle Knit Sweater by Brixon Ivy was dumpy and highlighted everything I hate about my body – muffin top, slumped shoulders, overlong arms. I’m also not a fan of this bright coral color with my skin complexion. No way was I going to pay $58 for this top, so it went back as well.
In all three of the pictures above, I’m wearing the Amalia Pull-On Skinny Jean by Just Black. I didn’t think I’d like these or that they’d fit me as I pulled them out of the box. I’m not usually a fan of skinny jeans. However, these are more like leggings and are super comfortable. They fit tight, but with a long top, they actually look pretty good on me. I paid $78 to keep these pants.
I love a good scarf, especially big infinity scarves. I also love birds, so this Henry Birds on Branch Infinity Scarf by Octavia was super fun. At only $28, I decided to keep this piece as well.
Considering what I really wanted were new work tops, I was disappointed in this box. I kept two items. Together, they were $106. Check out Stitch Fix for yourself. Sign up to try some new fashion sent straight to your door. And check out the last box I received here.
