It’s been more than a year-and-a-half since I last posted here – crazy! Granted I had been using my running blog more, but even that fell by the wayside a long time ago.
I didn’t even have an itch to get this thing going away but I signed up for Stitch Fix and needed a place to review my first order and post the pictures because other people’s blogs about Stitch Fix helped me so much that I wanted to do the same.
My (new – but more on that another time) boss is the one who convinced me. She’s been doing it for a while and while we have totally different tastes, I was intrigued by the fact that you can tell them exactly what you like and don’t like, how much you’re willing to spend, and any other preferences.
I wasn’t floored by my first order but I was pleased with two pieces – one of which I’m really torn on, mostly because of the $48 price tag. I apologize for the blotchy face, bloodshot eyes, glasses, and Rudolph nose – I’m sick. I wanted nothing more than to go straight to bed after work but I just HAD to try everything on.
Without further ado:
MARKET & SPRUCE
Careen V-Neck Dolman Knit Top
MARKET & SPRUCE
Sawyer Space Dye Dolman Sleeve Knit Top
I hated this. The pattern/texture was just not something I’m interested in – “space dye” is a spot-on description. It was SO long that it made me look like short and wide. It was also really thin so even if it fit well and had a non-space cadet pattern, it wouldn’t be worth $58. It was almost see-through.
April Patterned Knit Sweater
Boulder Button Down Blouse
I absolutely love this blouse and I knew I would before I even tried it on. With the sleeves down, it looks like a dressed up version of a good ol’ flannel. With the sleeves rolled & buttoned up, it looks a little more ladylike. I also tried it tucked it and nope! Not with this belly. And don’t worry I wouldn’t wear it out in public with leggings. I was just truly over the jeans.
KUT FROM THE KLOTH
Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jean
Verdict: ReturnOverall, I’m happy with this order and will definitely try it again.
Here’s what I told my stylist, Emma:
Hi Emma! Thanks for giving me options for work. My office definitely emphasizes the casual in business casual, but I don’t wear jeans to work and it’s always things you would be OK with your grandma seeing you wear. I am fine with one piece per Fix being something I would wear on the weekends or out to brunch friends. I would have loved the sweater if it was smaller. I don’t like to emphasize my stomach so looser clothing I am usually a medium while tighter, form-fitting tops usually have to be a large. The Boulder blouse was a perfect fit and exactly my style! Looking forward to my next Fix. Thanks again!
