Stitch Fix #21 PLUS $25 Stitch Fix Credits for You and Me!

Perfect timing: the day we got back from vacation, a Stitch Fix arrived! Okay, so I had it scheduled that way…but that didn’t make it any less exciting to come home to. Here are the items my stylist sent this time! Scroll down to see what I received this time and then see below to find out how you can get a $25 Stitch Fix credit by signing up in the next week!

 

1. Lavette Textured Knit Dress by RD Style ($98)

The pattern of this dress was so incredibly gorgeous! The moment I saw it I knew it would be a keeper. That is, until I tried it on. Dang it. The top half fit like a glove, and well, so did the bottom half. The problem was the dress flared out (duh, Jenny – it’s a fit and flare dress!). It really accentuated my waist well, but unfortunately I do not have good knees so the flare at the bottom kind of highlighted my worst body area. If there were a term like cankles for knees, that would describe what I have. Cankknees, maybe? Or kneekles? Or we could just settle on two-ton lardy knees. 🙁  Anyway, this gorgeous dress didn’t work for me because of my dumb knees.

Verdict: Sent it back

2. Bobet Faux Suede Vest by Pixley ($78)

This vest looked so incredibly cool! I love the moto style detailing and the color was really pretty and flattering to my (yellow-peach) skin tone. I think it would have looked great with t-shirts and dresses alike. My only problem with it was the faux suede-iness of it. It was just so darned soft it sort of reminded me of things much older ladies might wear when I tried it on. Now, a few days later as I write this blog post, I’m kind of kicking myself for not trying it on again. I really would have loved to try styling it. Another reason I didn’t keep it was because that darned Nordstrom annual sale is coming up soon and I have my eye on a few things there. Gotta hold back somewhere, right?

Verdict: Sent it back

3. Essi Embroidered Neckline Top by Pixley ($54)

I absolutely loved the Aztec embroidery on the neckline of this top, as well as the fit and cut of it. You can’t see well, but it has a button and slit at the top of the back and it is also gathered in the back so unlike most swingy tank tops it doesn’t make you look like a big bell. The navy color was really pretty, but I’m not a huge fan of wearing peach and pale pink colors. Although this would make a great staple in my wardrobe, I’m already kind of full up on staples. And then there’s that Nordstrom sale……

Verdict: Sent it back

4. Ramiro Grommet Detail Blouse by Pixley ($48)

This was one of those rare times when my stylist sent something that I really wouldn’t wear. It’s a very cute top and it would be really versatile — could be dressed up or down. The problem with this blouse — for me — is that there’s no way to wear a regular bra with it. I even tried a racerback and a convertible with it, but there were still straps showing. I know that can be cute and I’ve often thought a little strap peeking out on other people can look nice at times, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. Guess it’s too ingrained in my mind that undergarments should be hidden from public view. Yeah, I know I could wear a strapless bra with this top, but I also know myself well enough to know if I have to pull on a strapless bra, I will probably not be wearing this top very often. Not worth the trouble.

Verdict: Sent it back

5. Deanne Printed Maxi Skirt from Loveappella ($58)

At first glance I didn’t love the color scheme and pattern of this maxi skirt. Then I tried it on and it fit like a dream, making me look thinner and longer and being as comfortable and stretchy-drapey as they come. Whoa. All of a sudden the lackluster colors (which to me almost seem like fall colors) weren’t so off-putting. I started visualizing this skirt with a plain white tank top and epsadrille wedges during summer and then a knotted chambray shirt and ankle boots this fall. You know how it goes — once you start picturing yourself wearing/using/inhabiting stuff, you’ve already made your decision. So, yeah, I have a new maxi skirt in my closet.

Verdict: Kept it
