Stitch Fix #2 – January 2016
Although it’s only my second month – I have come to look forward to my monthly Stitch Fix.
Once again my stylist – Stephanie provided me with a great styling card and styling options. I had added more pins to my “Fashion/Beauty” board and was curious to see if she would actually look at my “likes” and outfit ideas.
Well I am happy to report she did! My box contained the following
– Gates Hooded Open Cardigan
– Woodburn Lace Back Knit Top
– Talar Split Neck Top
– Anita Skinny Pant
– Sutro Open Knit Infinity Scarf
When I initially took it out of the box I loved all the pieces that Stephanie chose for my Stitch Fix box – with the exception of the Anita Skinny Pant. I am a bit hippy and skinny pants and I have really not seen eye to eye (meaning I hate the way they look on me) but Mark said to give it a chance. More like “Try it, you might actually like it”.
So without further ado – here is the reveal of my January 2016 Stitchfix (Excuse the “I Love To Run” socks)
OUTFIT #1 – Anita Skinny Pant and Woodburn Lace Black Knit Top
I love this outfit – Mark did too – until I turned around and he saw he lace detail. That was my favorite part of this shirt and after a bit, it grew on Mark. He is of the “why can’t a shirt just be a shirt” mentality so Stitchfix is expanding his fashion horizons as well!
And guess what – I really liked the Anita Skinny Pant – more so than I thought. I think the longer shirt help to camouflage my hips.
Both of these pieces were keepers – I just need to find some shoes to pair with the Anita Skinny Pant.
OUTFIT #2 – Gates Hooded Open Cardigan
Sorry – but as much as I LOVEd the feel of this cardigan, once I put it on, not so much. It is one of those pieces that looked better on the styling card and in the box then on me. I just wish it was a bit more tapered around the waist because it just made me look too boxy.
Boo – this was returned.
Outfit #3 – Suturo Open Knit Infinity Scarf paired with Talar Split Nick Top
You can’t really tell but as with the Gates Hooded Open Cardigan the Talar Split Neck Top was just a bit too boxy to wear on its own in my opinion. The styling card said to pair under a sweater but I am not really a shirt/sweater gal. This was returned
The Sutro Open Knit Infinity Scarf – definitely a keeper. I am so into scarves lately and I loved that this was an infinity scarf with some funky woven detail. I added it to my Woodburn Lace Back Knit Top and my Anita Skinny Pant and I have a complete outfit. To me that is a win!
So 3 of the 5 outfits were added to my wardrobe – not bad! And in all honesty the ones that I decided to return were not because the clothing did not fit my style but because of sizing issues. I feel that Stephanie really “listened” to me, got me both pieces I would buy on my own and one that I would not even given a second chance.
Can’t wait to see what Stitchfix has in store for me next month!!!
