I LOVED this box when I first opened it. But now that I’m trying stuff on, I’m not so sure. Let’s get it started!
SCHMITT MIXED CHEVRON MAXI DRESS
this dress is delightful. No doubt, it’s staying.
ROWSON COLORBLOCK STRIPED SWEATER
I absolutely love this sweater right out of the box. But I’m not sure how much I like it on me. No waist shaping, which I’m not really sure works on a garment of this length on me. If I wear it with the sweater’s waistband resting above my hips, there’s too much fabric at the waist and it looks sloppy. I don’t know guys, what do you think? Am I being too critical or is this a case of “Girl, that’s not your sweater” as Tom and Lorenzo would say?
JULIA UTILITY JACKET
This is pretty cute too, don’t you think? And I though the same sweater above looked really cute with it.
Note the critter, who *had* to be part of this whole production.
BATEMAN PRINTED MIXED MATERIAL TOP
I also love this top. I do not love how I bothered to style it, but it’s 10 PM right now as I write this and styling isn’t going to happen! But how cute would this be under a blazer, or tucked into a pencil skirt?
I also received a pair of black pants, which are perfectly nice but about 4 inches too long. However, if I keep everything else it only makes sense to keep them too, in which case I’ll have them hemmed at the tailor’s.
I also noticed that the house brand, 41Hawthorn, is now made in China instead of the US. I’m not so keen on that.
As much as I love getting a box of clothes from Stitch Fix, the whole process of having to decide what stays and what goes is kind of stressful. Plus, I don’t own a mirror other than in the bathroom (I really should rectify that this weekend, don’t you think?) means I have to rely on pictures that I take with a self timer or by my BF J. to determine how I look, which isn’t always helpful. And, sometimes I worry that I am too self critical about how I look and I am not being objective. Maybe this weekend, I can actually style these items that I’m on the fence about and that will help me. But for now, I’d love to hear, what should I keep and what should go??
