I’m still on the hunt for clothes that fit me on my slow but sure race back to my normal size. I got my September Stitch Fix in the mail yesterday and I need your opinions. What do I keep, what do I send back?
If you’re new to my blog and are thinking, “What the what is a Stitch Fix?” You can read more on a few of my earlier blogs where I explain a little more of what they provide. As a busy mom they have saved my butt on numerous occasions.
My note to my stylist Jen: “For my September Stitch Fix I’d like clothes for my ten year college reunion that is coming up. I’d like neutral colors, black, navy, white.”
Mavi Mylee Tulip Hem Skinny Jean ($98) Positives: I love the tuliped hem on the pant. It’s interesting and different. I love the fit. I love the length. Being the shorty that I am, it’s nearly impossible to find pants that fit properly.
I love that cigarette style pants are coming in style. I love these pants so much. They might even be the best thing Stitch Fix has ever sent me. Shout out to my stylist Jen! She gets me. Side note: they are not actually jeans, they’re more like normal pants, not denim. Which I also like and NEED. Negatives: None, there are none. They are just my new favorite pair of pants and I wish I could have one in every color. And even if all of you comment and tell me, “Talia, you look like a teeny-bopper, they make your ankles look fat.” I say to you, “then I like fat ankles.”
THML Chassie Textured Dress ($78) Positives: How darling is the neckline? I just love the sleeve/strap thingys. It’s a nice dress and feels pretty well made. I love the pockets. It’s flattering. And I just can’t get enough navy. Negatives: It’s a little small, but I’m still losing baby weight so it will eventually fit, right? Can I wear this in the fall/winter? I don’t know how. Can someone tell me how? Joe said leggings. I don’t think leggings.
Monoreno Abram Ribbed Sleeve Rider Jacket ($78) Positives: It fits. Negatives: This was my least favorite piece in the box. It just feels a little outdated. I still like the moto style, but not with the cloth sleeves. I got one from Stitch Fix two years ago that I loved, but just wasn’t feeling this one.
Daniel Rainn Coronado Crochet Detail Top ($74) Positives: Fits well. Pretty detailing. Great transitional piece as we go into fall. Easy to wear when it gets warmer during the day, but still can throw a jacket on. Negatives: Earth tones are just not my thing. I wish it was a bit longer. I’m undecided, thoughts?
Urban Expressions Adelade Woven Fold-Over Clutch ($48) Positives: My accessories collection is severely lacking. I think I have a wallet from five years ago, and a diaper bag that’s falling apart. Truly I need to do something. This would be something. It’s different, I really like the style. It would be great for the traveling I’m doing over the next month. Negatives: It looks kind of cheap. I’d rather pay more and have something that is durable and well made. I’m not crazy about the brown. I saw someone else online had it in black. I think I would be more inclined to keep it if it was black.
What do you think? What should I keep? What should I send back?
