Stitch Fix Review #2

My second Stitch Fix was another success overall. My only specific request was for a pair of dark jeans that I could dress up or down. I don't know what it is, but jeans fall right after swimwear on my list of Things I Dread Shopping For, so I thought maybe my stylist could help - and she did! She sent these Kensie Skinny Jeans in a  nice dark blue (they look black in the photo, but they're not). They're made of a great soft stretchy denim, so even though they looked super skinny to start, they're comfortable and a good, flattering fit. She gave me some cute options for them on my style card. 


Next up was the 41Hawthorn Bell Solid Sleeveless Tie-Neck Blouse. In a soft cream shade and drapey material, this should have been right up my alley, but the tie-neck threw me off at first. It conjured images of 1980s elementary school teachers for some reason, but once I tried it on, I really liked it. The drape was flattering and comfortable and the tie was thin enough that I decided it was just a nice detail, and pretty on-trend right now. This is another good example of how Stitch Fix helps me find items I wouldn't have chosen for myself. See the blouse here with the Bay to Baubles Raelynn Knot Cluster Necklace. I liked the gold knots on the necklace, but the middle seemed to stick out a bit, and since I thought it was a little pricey I decided to send it back. The upside is that I was inspired to find a similar necklace, and I happily discovered one elsewhere that was similar but a little more subtle.

I received two dresses in this fix. The Sanctuary Felicity Colorblock Ponte Dress was almost right. I loved the style and fabric and was impressed that my stylist referenced a similar dress on my Pinterest style board (they actually look!). However - I am a 30-something mom of two with an active lifestyle, and this super mini short cut was just not practical for me. Because sometimes I need to sit down. Boo.

Finally, I received the 41Hawthorn Lori Lace Fit & Flare Dress. I love the lace details and lavender color, and this was a fun find because I had seen a peek of this very dress in a photo Stitch Fix had posted on their Instagram account, so it was neat to see it show up in my box! This seems a little on the dressy side for me, but I'm happy to have it on hand when a pretty, summery dress is called for.

Overall, I was pleased with this Stitch Fix and was excited to schedule my next one.
