Subscription Box Saturday: Stitch Fix #19

It’s always so much fun to tear into a new Stitch Fix! This time my stylist absolutely NAILED my style. The only trouble is, she nailed it so well that most of the items sent were things I already own. 🙁  For my June Stitch Fix I think I’ll leave a note for my stylist with some items I’d like to try, like maybe some shorts, a sundress, a pretty summer blouse, and maybe a fun graphic tee.

Check out the contents of SF#19!

1. Verleen Knit Burnout Maxi Dress by Pixley ($68)

I was hesitant to try this on because despite the fact that I loved the feel of the fabric and the gorgeous pattern, it looked sort of skimpy on top — or at least skimpier than I’m used to. When I tried it on, it was absolutely beautiful! It fit perfectly except for two ultimately important things: 1) The straps were a bit too long and I couldn’t adjust them, and 2) The dress itself was way too long on me, to the point that there were about 4-5 inches dragging on the floor. Am I that short? Too bad, too, because otherwise it was incredibly flattering and comfortable. Bummer.

Verdict: Sent it back

2. Rada 3/4 Sleeve Knit Top by Amour Vert ($58)

This was super-cute, perfectly drapey, and had a very flattering slightly hi-lo hemline. Problem: I already have at least two black and white striped shirts.

Verdict: Sent it back

3. Jahana Cargo Vest by Market & Spruce ($68)

Same problem as with the striped shirt above: I already have an olive utility vest. Mine doesn’t have a hood, and I actually prefer no hood because my hair just bunches up awkwardly with hoods.

Verdict: Sent it back

4. Tory Distressed Ankle Zip Skinny Jean by Pistola ($88)

These jeans were very stretchy and I liked the zipper details at the ankles. The color and distressing were nice, too. However, I am pretty well stocked up in the skinny jeans department. Maybe I’d have kept them if they had been a little looser, like boyfriend jeans or wide leg crops or something I don’t have much of.

Verdict: Sent them back

5. Nixen Pave Detail Cuff by Ok Original ($28)

This was very pretty and versatile, and I was just thinking to myself this morning that although I have a good variety of necklaces, I really don’t have many bracelets. I can see stacking this one with other gold bracelets, or even brightly colored ones. Plus, since I already paid the $20 styling fee, it was only another $8 to get to keep this baby. No-brainer! Please ignore the mole-and-freckle fest and focus on the bracelet. 🙂

Verdict: Keeping it

All in all this was a fun fix, but I was a little disappointed that I pretty much already own 3 of the 5 items. My stylist uses my Pinterest style board for inspiration, and I think the issue is I tend to pin not just things I like, but also things I already own to get ideas for styling what’s already in my closet. My stylist is just getting to know me a little too well.

Here’s a lay-flat photo of the three pieces that resemble ones I already own — and this is one way I love to style them:

Yep, that’s my style all right.
