Stitch Fix

I got my second Stitch Fix today! I've been stalking the Stitch Fix website for weeks, reading customer reviews, wondering when they'd start working on mine and mostly just fantasizing about what cute clothes they'd send! Tuesday I noticed that my box had FINALLY shipped. It feels like it took forever! I got the box today and greeted the Fed-ex guy with the biggest smile he's probably seen on a grown woman!

I opened the box and....LOVED THE COLORS!

I think I had a different stylist this time, which was slightly disappointing but I was willing to keep an open mind. She mentioned she put a pair of pants that would be "perfect for work"....which would be great...if I wore pants to work. (Real pants, not scrub pants. I do wear scrub pants to work.)

I tried the Elizabet Striped Maxi Dress ($68) on first. It was another maxi dress...and horizontally striped at that. Eesh. This wasn't going to go well. Horizontal stripes on my hips are a disaster waiting to happen. But I tried it on....and I actually really liked it. From the side view I think it is pretty flattering. The front view definitely shows I've got thighs...but who doesn't? At least mine are (mostly) muscular. Besides, I could walk around sideways all the time, right?

 Ignore my face. I don't know why I make that face when someone is taking a picture of me. 

The Sadie Embroidered Neckline Tab-Sleeve Blouse ($48) was next. It's like my dream shirt - flowy, slightly sheer, dreamy shirt. I really like this one. A lot. I'm a little worried it looks like all of my other clothes though.

  Oh I'm just petting my lion. What are you doing? 

Followed by the Norris Henley Sleeveless Hi-Lo Blouse ($48). I put this on and didn't love it. I looked in the mirror and didn't love it. I showed it to Rachel the Roommate who loved it. She wants me to keep it so she can borrow it. After she took the pictures though....I really really like it in pictures. I think it's flattering and slightly different than what I already have. I'm a little unsure about the tail though.

 Do I have a tail?? 

I LOVED the Delfina Pintuck Flutter Sleeve Blouse ($68) on the hanger. It was such a vibrant color! It looked soft and pretty and romantic. I tried it on and wasn't quite as sure. It's definitely my least favorite of the shirts. And then I saw the price. I definitely wasn't looking to spend $68 on that shirt. If it had been $35? Sold in a heartbeat! $45? I'd strongly consider it. But $68? No.... as I was sadly folding it up to put it back in the box, I noticed a few threads unraveling from the front seam. What do you think of it? Worth $68? If I tell them about the seam, I'm sure they'll send me a new one if they have it. The customer service is supposed to be great.

 I liked it like this. 

 Rachel the roommate preferred it belted. 

Finally, the Emer Diamond Print High Waisted Cropped Pant ($98). WHOA! I pulled these out of the box and was terrified. Printed pants! So out of my comfort zone! I vowed to try everything on though and so on they went. Cropped pants on a short person are....normal pants. They definitely hit the top of my foot. They were not cropped at all. The high waisted part scared me as well but I thought I could get used to them. The pants were insanely comfortable. I would have been content staying in them for 3 days. Sleeping, working out, you name it, I'd do it in these pants. Once I saw them in pictures, I wasn't as sure. They looked a little snug in the hips/thighs (as everything is). The high waisted part made me look like I had a FAPA. Which I don't. Then I saw the price. And they came off just that fast.


 And this is their version of "cropped" 

I have until Sunday night to decide. What do you think? Right now I'm leaning towards the Sadie shirt, the Hi-Lo Blouse and maaaaayyyyybee the maxi dress.

I would get the Sadie shirt and the blue shirt! Those are very flattering on you. Send the other things back...you can always save closet space for your next fix:)

Thanks Elizabeth! That's pretty much been the consensus...so that's what I'm going to do! Appreciate the input :)
