Stitch Fix #2




Time for another box from Stitch Fix!  If you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix before, check out my first experience with them.

I received another 5 items on Friday and tried them all on Sunday night.  When I opened the box at work on Friday I was super excited about a few of the items.

Item #1 – Zebra Printed Top

Pros – Fit well, print was fun, can be dressy or casual

Cons – The fabric!  It’s 100% viscose which I’m trying to purge from my closet.  In fact, I had a shirt by this exact same brand that pilled up after two wearings.

Item #2 – Silver necklace

Pros – Unique style, good length

Cons – Price.  This was more than I’d typically spend on a silver necklace for myself.  Also, I have a lot of silver necklaces that hit at my collarbone.

Item #3 – Silk shirtdress

Pros – I liked the color.  Sleeves were the right length.

Cons – Shape and length!  This was WAYYYY too short!  Also, it just looks like a pajama top to me.  Also, the price was too high (over $100) for me.

Item #4 – Gray cardigan

Pros – Comfy. back had a unique eyelet pattern

Cons – A little too small and the shape of the bottom just accentuated my hips a bit too much.  I didn’t love it for the price.

Item #5 – Black and brown dress

Pros – I LOVED LOVED LOVED the style of this dress.  The black sheath dress with the brown accents was love at first sight when I pulled it out of the box.  The price was awesome, too.

Cons – It was WAY too small!  The picture of the back is to demonstrate that I couldn’t zip it up any further.  It just wouldn’t fit around my ribcage and it was a bit too tight at my hips.

So, sadly, I’m not keeping anything from this Fix.  But I’ve ordered another one for May because it’s just so fun!  And for only $20 I feel like I’m getting a deal on the shipping.  If you want to try it you can click here to request an invite. It’s a great way to get exposed to things you never would have picked up in the store.  Even though I’m not keeping any of these items I actually got some great ideas for future outfits just by trying this stuff on!

Cardigan, top, and pants – The Limited

Shoes – 6pm.com

This year is all about going out of my comfort zone in terms of colors.  Last year I bought a gold sequined dress even though I rarely wear gold.  And then I saw a photo online that made me crave more gold.  When I saw this gold tank top on the clearance rack at The Limited I knew I had to have it.

So, this is my interpretation of the outfit above.  I have a few other ideas for this gold top as well.  But all of this means one other thing:  I need to actually buy some gold jewelry!!
Do you prefer gold or silver?
