I really do look forward to getting my monthly Stitch Fix. I had sent an email after seeing some really cute chunky sweaters, asking for one to be added to my fix. With the weather changing I was eagerly anticipating this month’s fix.
Inside the envelope I found a note to me and a few options on how to style my new items. Unfortunately the note told me the chunky sweaters I requested were not in stock. But she pulled a few items she thought I’d like.
I actually liked the sweater, but as you can see in the picture above and the two below, it was unraveling. I don’t know if it was just this sweater or how it was made, I just know, I’m not spending any amount of money on something that is falling apart.
Needless to say, this sweater went back in the box.
This was another that I kinda liked. Didn’t love, just kinda, sorta liked it on me. This picture doesn’t do it justice. I promised myself I wouldn’t purchase something if I didn’t love it. I don’t need any more clothes in my closet that I don’t wear, so this too, back in the box.
I LOVED the cardigan in the box, not so much on me. It was extremely tight on my chubby arms. I think I could have pulled this off, with the proper blouse. But since it didn’t look great on, it had to go back in the box. 😦
I was really shocked to see pants in my fix. I didn’t think that was something I would get, because of my size. Now that I had them, I was positive they would not fit. But I decided to attempt to get them on me. I did, and I was shocked when they fit. Not only did they fit, they felt really comfy. The only drawback was they fit me like leggings. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like leggings worn as pants. I’m not a fan of the look on my fat behind. Maybe if I were thinner, didn’t have thighs that reminded me of Serena Williams (10 years after she stops playing tennis) I’d rock that look. Since they did not look awesome now, back in the box they went.
This picture does not do this vest justice, neither does the picture of me in it (notice it’s not included). Once I tried it on I kinda like this too. I put it aside to think about it. After about a day or so, I realized I would never wear this vest. I didn’t love it on me. Back in the box it went.
So yes, I paid my $20.00 and didn’t get anything. I guess that is part of the downside with Stitchfix. You may not love anything in your box. Since this was the first time this has happened (my other fixes- 1 and 2), I am not thinking about cancelling my subscription. I did adjust it, so I will not be getting another until January. I am trying to stay on a budget, I think every other month will work better for me.
Have you tried Stich Fix? Have you had to return all of your items??
