On Wednesday I received my first Stitch Fix box! My friend Leah has been receiving them for awhile now. I was finally convinced to try it out when my coworker received her first box and the styles were her to a tee (and her style is NOTHING like Leah’s). I decided to take a chance that they might actually be able to nail my style, too.
Here’s what was in my first box:
Collective Concepts Wintor Leopard Print Cross-Front Blouse
I was not immediately won over by this blouse. I think it looks like I am wearing a scarf. I do like the pattern of the fabric though, and Corner and Kathy were both adamant that I should keep it…so it stays.
Collective Concepts Christie Cross-Front Ruffle Detail Tank
I really liked the hot pink color of this shirt (the selfie shows the color much better, which is why I included it). The styling of the straps really showed off my shoulders and arms. I was uncertain what kind of bra I would wear with it though (I’m actually wearing a sports bra for the pics!). The top was also very sheer and crossed over in the front in kind of a gape-y way. Corner said it looked like maternity wear, which convinced me to send it back.
Sanctuary Rimini Striped Knit Jacket
I actually really, REALLY liked this jacket. I loved the moto style combined with the pastel colors. The material was very soft, almost jersey-like, and the fit in the shoulders was perfect. The arm length was also spot on. However, I have broader shoulders and the jacket was way too big around the waist — I probably would have needed to take it in nearly 2″ on each side. I pinned it back for taking photos. Really wish this piece had worked out.
SOLD Design Lab Jax Moto Detail Denim Pull on Pant
These jeans were almost a hit. The denim felt thick and expensive. They were a near perfect fit and I really like the detailing above the knees. (My right knee is still swollen post-surgery — the spandex of the stretchy denim acted like compression fabric and felt so good!) I almost kept them because they’re so comfortable, but the lack of back pockets is a deal breaker for me. Shows off the butt too much for my liking. I’d be curious to try this brand in the future but seek out a pair with pockets.
Kris Nations Baxter Geo Leaf Necklace
This necklace was adorable. It was very light and dainty, and I could see myself wearing it with a variety of outfits. It was a little pricey though, and it was so dainty I was actually afraid I might break it (I tend to do that with jewelry, especially necklaces).
So did Stitch Fix nail my style? Kind of. I probably would not have picked out any of these pieces for myself, so I’m glad I got the opportunity to try on some new looks. I signed up to receive another box in July, so hopefully with a little refinement more of the items in the next box will be keepers!
