I’m back! I’ve had some good luck with Stitch Fix this year so far but can’t afford monthly deliveries, so instead, I’ve been doing every other month. My first this year was February, then April and now June. . .and I’m afraid my luck has run out.
I didn’t even take pictures in everything because well, nothing fit quite right. I asked for casual summer pieces – as always, I am great need for bottoms, which are always tough for me to find just the right size. So far, SF has sent me some great ones so I was hopeful this time for some cute shorts. I’ve seen some posted on their Pinterest that were really cute but wasn’t thrilled with the one pair they sent me. Here is the lot of it:
I posted the pictures in order on the receipt so rather than typing everything out, let me just give you my overall thoughts.
The Report Footwear sandals – super cute and love the color but incredibly uncomfortable. I have very narrow, thin feet and the top strap was still too tight for me to barely get my toes in. Once they were buckled, they were even worse with the straps cutting into my ankles. Uh, no.
The Skies are Blue Marasolay Eyelette Lace Detail Knit Top – this was the only one that remotely fit me, as you can see in the picture below. Sorry for the weird filters, I have a light out in my bedroom so it was pretty dark in there. The top is pretty enough and fit me on top but seems a little long and the pattern wasn’t my taste. It’s a very comfy cotton though and I do like the colors so rather than lose my $20 styling fee, I did buy this item.
The Renee C Alecto Halter Top – I did like the colors and the pattern but it was WAY too big. The arm holes were too long and the shirt was just too wide. Very unflattering.
The Kut from the Kloth Siena Cropped Pants – for those who didn’t see my Fix #10, I JUST bought some hot pink ankle jeans to go with a really pretty mint green tank they sent me. Why in the world would my stylist think I needed another pair of hot pink pants? She said in her styling note that it was such a good price and $58 is very fair but not unless they were in another color.
Finally, the Dear John Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino Shorts – I like the Dear John brand and have a pair of super comfy jean shorts I got in another Fix I wear all the time but these were very uncomfortable. I may have gained a pound or 2 the past few months but the rear and waist were both too tight and I wasn’t wild about the cuff at the bottom.
So, that’s June. I don’t have another Fix scheduled now until September 1st and we will see I stick with that date. I’ve found some steals at other stores lately and kind of stocked up on summer clothes so probably will be looking to fall by then. I picked up this adorable American Eagle romper for only $19.99 on sale, a store I would NEVER normally shop in but went with a friend who likes their clothes. So glad I did!
I also got some super comfy Ana shorts at JC Penney for 40% off so picked up a pair in black and white. I swear, I think I could wear these white shorts with half my summer shirts. I should have bought 2!
Finally, a few months ago, I got some cute clothes from Nasty Gal – has anyone watched Girlboss on Netflix? Well, talk about HUGE fail – the clothing store declared bankrupsy right after the show about it’s creator came out so dumb me, I loved it so much, I got on their website and ordered some clothes before I realized this LA company had been sold to a company in the UK. Almost a month later, I finally get my dresses but I tell you, they are super cute and really a great price at only $40 each.
I adore this dress for summer – it’s super lightweight so I had to get a little slip to wear under it but nothing tight or bind about it and I love the flower pattern.
I love this dress too and it fits like a glove but I bought it to wear to a May wedding and due to the shipping delay, it arrived too late. It’s very pretty, very formal looking on so not sure when I will have the chance to wear it. Hoping another friend will get married (or re-married! LOL) so I can bust it out.
OK, I suppose that’s enough fashion talk for today! We will see what SF comes up with in September!
