When I received my email from Stitch Fix letting me know my fix was on its way, I had to take a peek. Five items, one scarf, one dress and the rest tops, not too bad. I was looking forward to checking out my new items.
I actually liked the look of just about everything in my box. Then, I tried everything on. I promised myself to only keep the items I loved. I have more than enough things in my closet that I will wear “someday”.
I don’t typically buy scarves. Not because I don’t want them, but because I get overwhelmed in the store. I decided to get my mother and aunts scarves for Christmas and spent over an hour in the store trying to figure out which one to give which person. I am so happy Stitch Fix sent me one, takes the stress off of me and I think it is beautiful!
LOVED this jacket. But if you have read my last review, you know I don’t fit well into 41Hawthorn clothing. Unfortunately, this jacket was no different. Once I zipped her up I felt that hulkish feeling. If I sneezed, the jacket would rip into shreds. I spent some time thinking about getting it and just leaving it unzipped, it’s definitely cute enough to wear that way. But for $88.00, it should fit perfectly.
I so wanted this dress to be a keeper. My issue was where the black band hit my waist. It just didn’t look right to me. After I adjusted a few times and stood perfectly still, it looked fantastic! I call this dress an “if only”. If only clothes are those clothing items that would be perfect if only you lost a pound or ten, if only you stood at an 45 degree angle on a hill, if only the event was in candlelight. I have way to many of those items in my closet.
This was another that I wanted to love. Regrettably, it was too tight around my chest.
Neon orange and denim…nah not for me. My 12-year-old daughter fell in love with this top. I would have kept it for her, but it is $58. Not sure about the 12-year-old girls in your life, but this one spills just about everything down the front of her. That alone makes buying a $58 shirt for her an easy NO.
Overall, I am pleased with my fix this month. I would have loved to keep more items, maybe next time. I’m thrilled with my scarf. I plan on wearing this at least once a week. I requested to skip my March shipment (this was my February shipment, I receive them at the end of the month). I’m hoping my April shipment will have cute sundresses and awesome spring/summer tops.
