So, time for my third Stitch Fix box. I’ve been really enjoying these boxes, especially since I realised that I can send messages to the stylist to let them know what’s going on. I sent the stylist a message before my box was sent to let them know that I’m not wearing jeans or trousers at the moment and received a lovely note in my box from my stylist Lindsey, who had obviously taken this into account and provided clothing that was soft, comfortable and casual. It’s been 5 weeks since my op, and I’m hoping to get the brace off soon but until then, I’m still wearing dresses and skirts.
So here’s what I got this time!
- Green Hummingbird Liara Knot Front Knit Top ($32)
- Grey Jolie Reid French Terry Knit Top ($36)
- Red Gilli Morgana Maxi Skirt ($48)
- Striped Papermoon Anica One Pocket Knit Top ($38)
- White Mix by 41 Hawthorn Ashbury Essential Knit Top ($28)
In all of these photos, I’m wearing the red maxi skirt that was sent ($48). I haven’t worn a maxi skirt in a while because I always feel like they don’t really suit me well enough but I really liked this one. It was so long, I could easily have worn it pulled up to my boobs but the only reason I returned it was that the material was a little too clingy, and I felt like you could see every bump and lump which would make me paranoid, even though I doubt anyone else would even notice!
This top was the white essential knit top ($28) which was a really decent price, but I have two other white tops that are very similar so it was silly to keep this one as well.
I liked this green knot front top ($32) but all of my tops at the moment are being worn tucked into skirts, and I thought this would look much better with leggings and jeans which I doubt I’ll be wearing for a while, especially if we get a crazy summer like last year!
This grey knit top ($36) was probably the biggest fail in the box. I’m sure it’s super cute when you finally figure out how to wear it, but it was such a weird shape with tight arms and huge torso. I put the top on and pulled the sleeves up as far as I could on my arms but was left with this situation
The only thing I chose to keep from this box was this striped t-shirt ($38) – it’s so soft, and I like the buttons that go up the back (which unlike the top from a previous box, doesn’t gape!). But then, if you were going to choose one item from this box that I’d probably go for, it would be this one, because I have a problem with stripes (although have donated quite a few since this picture was taken!)
If you’re in the US, this link will give you your first Fix for free (and I’ll receive $25 towards future purchases). I really enjoy getting the Stitch Fix boxes, especially when they send things that I really would never have thought to look at – this skirt is definitely one – while I’ve sent this one back because of the material, I’m thinking about how else I could style a maxi skirt now! My only complaint would be that the things I quite like are usually things that I already own similar items, but you could also look at that as it being a pretty close match to my own style!
