I love coming home to a Stitch Fix box on my doorstep! With school starting tomorrow, I was hoping that this fix would jazz up my work wardrobe a little bit. And it does indeed!
If you are still unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, it's a styling service. For twenty bucks per month, a stylist will select five pieces of clothing (and sometimes an accessory or a handbag) for me to consider. What I receive should reflect the style profile I completed when I signed up. That twenty bucks goes towards my purchase, and if I decide to keep all five items my purchase will be discounted 25%. There's also a sweet referral credit of $25 each time someone signs up using my referral code. I only pay for what I keep, and I have three days to put my returns in the prepaid envelope provided and give it to my letter carrier. Easy breezy!
Because I can leave a note for my stylist prior to receiving my fix, this time I expressly requested knee-length A-line or circle skirts. They are super practical for school. I also requested short-sleeve or three-quarter length sleeve blouses.
Here's what my fix included:
|41Hawthorn Callifia Print Wrap Dress $68|
I really like wrap dresses, but this one was too small. Way too small! Not all mediums are created equal. Know what I mean? If it had fit better, I would have seriously considered keeping it. Oh, well.
|41Hawthorn Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse|
|Market and Spruce Jay Mini Houndstooth Printed Skirt $58|
I actually liked both pieces, but the shirt was just a little too small across the bust. The skirt is a keeper, though. I like the soft knit fabric and the elastic waist. I think it will look cute with my black boots on colder days.
|41Hawthorn Wrenn V-Neck Jersey Top $48|
|Papermoon Kasidy Abstract Print Swing Skirt $58|
Once again, I really liked the skirt and I'm keeping it. It's another soft knit, but it's lighter weight than the houndstooth skirt is. I really like the fact that it's lined. However, the top is going back. I did not care for the neckline at all, but I thought the color was lovely. I have other things in my closet that I can wear with this skirt. I plan to wear it tomorrow with a black knit top I bought over the summer.
If the dress and the first blouse had fit, I would have kept four out of the five items. I think I've realized that the 41Hawthorn brand seems to run a little small in general - at least based on these two items of clothing. So that's two keepers out of five pieces for me this time. Because some sweet friend (I think it's you, Kim!) signed up using my referral code, I have a $25 credit that will apply toward my purchase. Yea!
