Stitch Fix #3

Several days ago I opened an email telling me my next Stitch Fix was being prepared.

My what now? Obviously I know what Stitch Fix is. Not too long ago I told you all about it when my last box arrived; however, I smooth forgot I had one scheduled for January. After it took a few seconds to process, I remembered. I even remembered moving it from the beginning of the month to the 27th. I just didn't remember this until after the stylist assigned to me looked at my information and saw a blank square.

I was planning on filling out my "note to stylist" closer to the date of my shipment. That way I would have a better idea of what I wanted to see. Oops. That being said, I was nervous when the big white box appeared on my doorstep. With zero direction, who knew what was lurking under the packing tape? To my surprise, this box was actually pretty cute. Click HERE to read my last Stitch Fix review and learn the ins and outs of the service. Did you read it? Okay, good. Now, take a peek into Round Three:

ONE: I actually really liked this top. I probably would've kept it if I had more money sitting around. It was just under 50 bucks for a tee with nice embroidery, but I thought it fit nicely. This is called the Gabrielle Embroidered Bib Knit Top. VERDICT: SENT BACK

TWO: I have nothing against this shirt. It was even closer to my price range. It was immediately on my return list, however, because there's an exact replica hanging in my closet. I guess this means they've got my style now {whatever style that may be!}. It's the Tierra Cap Sleeve Top. VERDICT: SENT BACK

THREE: I immediately liked this cardigan. I liked its crochet pattern and even the flying squirrel thing on the sleeves. I decided to sit on this Stitch Fix a few days and the more I tried it on, the frumpier it got. If I'm paying past Old Navy prices for clothes, the word frumpy shouldn't enter my mind. VERDICT: SENT BACK

FOUR: I didn't like the Elissa French Terry Striped Moto Jacket when I pulled it out of the box. Then I put it on and it was really cute. I grew more and more fond of it, but ended up sending it back. It came with a $74 price tag and I bought a more versatile jacket last week. Good-bye, friend. VERDICT: SENT BACK

FIVE: Third box. Third miss on jeans. These were the Ruxin Distressed Boyfriend Jeans. I wasn't sure whether "boyfriend" fit was for women shaped like boys {then, win!} or if it would be intentionally baggy. These definitely weren't flattering on me. When I give this service another go, I may request no jeans. VERDICT: SENT BACK

So my third Stitch Fix was a bust. While this might seem like a discouraging post, I enjoyed searching blogs for peeks at my items and thought I could fill that need. I'm not disappointed, either. I'm glad I thought about it for a few days and decided my money would be better spent on something I love {or, you know, diapers}. What an adult, right?

In all honesty, I think direction would have helped. I didn't hate these items, but I would've asked for more color and bolder patterns. I am going to give this one more try in a few months and hopefully snag some summery tops and/or dresses. Now it's your turn. If you want to see what this Stitch Fix thing is all about, click HERE to fill out your style profile and schedule a delivery. Just remember to give them some direction.

Maybe between the two of us there's a 25% discount in the near future for keeping the entire box. I sure hope so! Happy Friday, friends.

I definitely think you should have kept the striped jacket - it is so cute on you! I especially like the zipper!

I loved the striped jacket on you! But I would've sent it back as well with that price tag. I sent all of mine back for January too- High Five to us for being awesome and buying diapers, groceries, and gas instead! lol

Thanks for reading, y'all - I DID like the jacket but I just couldn't justify it. And Amanda I think you said it best in your January post, it's just not the right time of year. I scheduled my last-chance fix for April to see if they can nail summer/spring for me.

I like the colors in that first top.
