I decided to treat myself to another Stitch Fix. I really enjoy this "Here are some clothes. Wear them." concept. I know some people enjoy spending hours and hours out at the shops, looking through racks....but that's just not my thing. So far, I've really enjoyed the clothes from my Stitch Fix stylist. So far, everything suits my style, and I honestly don't know how they find pants that fit me better than any I've ever purchased for myself at the store. You can also send a note to the stylist when you schedule a fix, which helps with the selection process. For example, for this fix, I told her I didn't need any heavy sweaters or layering pieces, as we're still experiencing highs in the 80s here quite often.
I will post my items in order from favorite to least favorite...though really the final three are a toss-up. All will be great for layering if Southern California ever decides to join the autumn team.
All three pants I've received from Stitch Fix were from this brand. I guess when I told them how perfectly the first set fit, I suppose they figured, "Why mess with a good thing?" These jeans are great...a little more dressy than the first pair they sent, so that will provide some nice variety.
This lightweight top pairs nicely with the jeans. Even though the sleeves are long, the material is really light, so I imagine I could still wear this on even slightly warmer days. It would even work well when you know you're headed for one of those places that turns the air conditioner to "meat locker."
Just as they say you can't go wrong with a little black dress, I bet you can't go wrong with this little black blouse. I believe this will pair well with every jacket/sweater I own in my closet. I might also need to drag out the one blingy pair of earrings I own.
This blouse seemed a little odd when I pulled it out of the package and on the hangar. However, once I tried it on, all the "wrap" stuff fell into place and it looks very cute. I like this geometric design as I have nothing else like it in my closet.
This blouse includes many unusual details: the tie at the back of the neck, the unusual neckline and the "drape-y" hemline. As an added bonus, it's my favorite color. I can't wait to take all of these new wardrobe pieces for a spin.
