My Second Stitch Fix – June 2016

I was super excited to schedule my second Stitch Fix after having such a good experience the first time around.  This time I  let my stylist know that I’d love to have some color added to my very limited post-baby wardrobe especially with summer coming. I was also hoping to have pieces that would coordinate with each other or my first Fix.

The lead time was similar to last time, just about two weeks. When I came home and saw the Stitch Fix box on my porch I couldn’t wait to see what was inside.  The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was that in addition to the little tissue wrapped package of clothes, there was a dust bag inside … Shoes!

And now for the piece by piece run down:

  1. Nine West Onlee Pointed Toe Flats (6) $69. I was really happy to see flats in a neutral color since I only have my black Banana Republic ballet flats to wear to work (I can’t manage heels and the baby in her car seat, rock on to you moms who can!) that is, until I pulled them all the way out and saw the very pointed toe…. I know the pointed toe is fashionable but I just can’t get there.  I knew these would be going back, so no chance of a 25% discount with this Fix which meant I was only going to keep something if I really loved it.
  2. London Times Anaisey Jersey Dress (6) $68.  This dress had a really great cut and it fit awesome.  I wasn’t in love with the print though.  I felt like it was too dark for summer and it just felt a little “old lady” to me.  Not to mention it would have been really hard to pump in… I mean I would have had to pull the entire dress all the way up which would have left me sitting in my office, pumping, pretty much undressed.  If the print had been amazing I would have made that sacrifice, but alas I had to send this one back as well.
  3. 41 Hawthorn Moni Geo Print & Camisole Blouse (S) $58.  Yay! Color!  I wasn’t sure about the sleeves or the stud detail on this blouse but once I tried it on, I was won over.  This one was a keeper.  My only problem is I have no bottoms to match so I haven’t actually gotten to wear it yet which is a bummer.
  4. Collective Concepts Ryleigh Pintuck Detailed Silk Blouse (SP) $78.  I knew I was going to love this blouse as soon as I saw it.  The Pintuck detail was really nice and it fit great.  The only problem is that I just bought a black PaperMoon blouse in my last Fix so I couldn’t justify spending $78 on another black blouse. If it was any other color, I would have kept it, but sadly I had to send it back.
  5. 41 Hawthorn Joelle Textured Knit Skirt (S) $64.  I wasn’t too sure about this skirt.  I didn’t love the textured fabric, I thought it added bulk which I definitely don’t want or need.  I also didn’t really like the pattern along the bottom, tribal type prints aren’t really my style, but the real problem was the fit.  This skirt hit about an inch below my knee.  It made me look short and stumpy, not the look I am going for.  This one went back as well.

Final Thoughts:

Even though I only ended up keeping 1 of the pieces this time I wasn’t too disappointed.  I understand that it is going to take the stylist at least a handful of times to really start to get what I will like, how far she can push me outside of my comfort zone and what clothes will flatter my frame.  I ended up immediately scheduling another Fix because, hey, I need clothes.  It is scheduled to arrive on June 25th so I will be sure to post about it.
