For my 3rd Stitch Fix, I requested a new stlyist and am so glad that I did. My new stylist, Jennifer, totally gets me. When I opened my fix, I thought that I might be keeping it all. Because it all was so great and looked like things I would wear (or want to wear).
Eli was super excited about my fix, until he found out it wasn’t toys…
If you’re not familiar with Stitch Fix, it is a service where you have your own personal stylist who picks out clothing items for you, based on your style profile and your pinterest board. They send you 5 items, you try them on at home, and you send back what you don’t love. There is a $20 fee for each box, which gets applied to whatever items you want to keep.
Your stylist gives you suggestions of how to wear each piece, which is super helpful when you get stuff you wouldn’t normally pick out. Stitch Fix is pretty perfect for a busy mama, who can’t find the time or energy to try on clothes in a store with two toddlers trying to escape under the fitting room doors. Or for someone who is stuck in a style rut, like me.
In the stylist note for this fix I wrote that we were going on a family trip to the UP this month, and I wanted some pieces specific for that. And Jennifer totally went with it.
So, here it is, my third Fix! I took flat lay photos of them all this time, mostly because I wanted to show off my amazing wood floors.
Kelly Dress, Papermoon. There are so many things I love about this dress. I love that it has little sleeves, because I always get cold. I love the pattern. It is so fun, right? I really like the fit and cut of it, sometimes elastic waist dresses hit me weird because I’m tall, but I think it looked good.
So whats the problem? Look real close at the hem line. See how it’s shorter on one side? My mom measured last night, and it’s a whole 1.5 inches shorter on the right side.
Such a bummer, because I felt like this was a really good dress for me.
Lissane Keyhole Halter Top, Renee C. I like the cut and style of this top. It fits me good in the body. And I like that the halter portion isn’t really like anything I currently own.
I’m still back and forth on this one. I’m not in love with the pattern, the way that it looks like bandanas. And the big problem, I don’t really have a good bra to wear with it. I just bought 5 new bras recently, and none of them are strapless. Mostly because strapless clothing is not something I can wear with my two monkeys that hang all over me.
Do you think I should keep it?
Edeline Dress, THML. This dress. This dress makes me so sad. I love it. I want it. I wish it were longer.
I requested a tunic that I could wear as a bathing suit coverup. Jennifer sent me two options. This Edeline dress is so good. I love the boho vibe. I love the color, navy is a staple for me and the turquoise embroidery is so fun. It fits good, except for the length. Since you can’t really see the top so well because of my hair, here’s a close up:
I would only wear this as a coverup, never as a dress. It barely covers my butt. So I’m having a hard time justifying keeping it.
Polly Tie Waist Tunic, Pixley. Before I tried this on, I loved it. I’m drawn to blue and it has a subtle pattern. Then I tried it on.
It looks like a maternity top. The belt hits at a weird place. If I were pregnant, I’d keep it. But I’m not, sorry Mom!
I think it has a great neckline. I’m going to request another tunic next month, I don’t really have any tunics but I want to try them out.
Caine Fringe Open Cardigan, Skies are Blue. Totally keeping this.
Jennifer suggested that I wear this with jeans and a tee. Or over a swimsuit. I’m obsessed and I know I can wear this all the time. I love layering, and even though it is still very much summer here in Michigan, I feel like this will transition awesome into fall.
Emmy totally wanted to participate in the Fix photo shoot this month. She makes the photos more fun to look at.
So what do you think? Should I keep the Edeline dress, even if I can only use it as a cover up? Do you think the Lissane halter is a keeper? Let me know in the comments!
