As I sit here typing this review, I am wearing the sweater that I kept from my first Stitch Fix installment. It is the perfect substitute for a t-shirt – soft, warm, but still looks like I bothered to get dressed. The tags are still on my other keeper, but in its defense, our temps are still in the 30’s and I’ve not yet begun wearing tank tops.
I wish I could speak as highly of my second fix. Sadly, all of it went back. Here’s what I received:
1. A maxi dress (see first photo, above). This would probably look darling on a lot of women. At 5’4” with no chest to speak of and a butt that would make J-Lo jealous, the maxi dress as a category is not for me. I did try this one on in the spirit of exploration and change, but nope. This was not a winner.
2. A striped front cardigan. I didn’t even take this one out of the package. I love stripes but do not love clothes that are one thing in the front and another in the back (did I just describe mullets?).
3. An embroidered infinity scarf. Cute (sorry, no photo), but no cigar. I am just not a scarf person. I’ve tried, really I have, but at 41, I’m giving up the fight.
4. A striped knit top. This was really cute both on and off. A simple basic with a nice cut that would have been great paired with jeans or a skirt. Unfortunately, this top went back due to price point. I felt like this was a top that I could find at Old Navy for half the price and about the same quality. Kind of a bummer this one.
5. Distressed skinny jeans. These jeans were more than distressed. They were fully ripped. Remember how I said I’m 41? My only jeans with holes are reserved for working in the garden. Call me old fashioned. I’m not spending money (especially not over $100) on ripped jeans.
I’m not ready to give up on Stitch Fix yet. I’m hoping that my next installment (not until May – I moved to every other month and skipped March) will be amazing. Until then, I’ll be wearing this dress every day.
