Hi, Oddly Lovely crew! It’s the fist of the month, which means it’s Stitch Fix day!
For those of you who don’t know what Stitch Fix is, it’s a subscription box clothing service where for $20 a box, you receive a personal stylist who will send you a selection of clothes picked out specifically for you. Then, you keep what you want and return the rest, while the $20 down payment can be used as a discount against any clothes that you keep.
Unfortunately, this was the first month in a loooooong time that my box just wasn’t quite on the mark. Oh, there were some cute items in here, but I’m sorry to report they were just not items I needed. See what I mean:
Skies are Blue Alise Embroidered Halter Top, $48 – Returned
This top is perfectly alright, and I get that it has that sort of southwestern-inspired pattern that I’ve pinned all over my boards. That said I wasn’t crazy about the pattern and the white fabric (I’m a little overly conscientious about just how pale I look in white clothes…). The fit wasn’t anything to write home about either.
Dear John Finnegan Cuffed Short, $58 – Returned
I’ve been asking my beloved stylist, Ariann, for some shorts for summer, and I know she’s trying hard to deliver. I got some perfect ones last month, but these were just a bit too small for me in the waist. Even if they were, the peachy color just isn’t quite for me.
Skies are Blue Yaxley Braided Neckline Top, $48 – Returned
Again, I get why my stylist selected this top for me – the braided neckline is very boho! I feel like the way the top comes in at my chest makes my shoulders look a bit broad, though, and I’m never a huge fan of horizontal stripes. This outfit wound up feeling a bit too sailor-y for me and not quite what I was looking for.
RD Styl Vierra Off Shoulder Dress, $68 – Returned
Okay, totally cute dress that’s definitely my style! The problem is, I already have a dress that’s nearly identical… dark blue, just above the knee, very summery… and already I don’t wear that dress enough. Good try, Ariann!
Allie and Rob Brent Crochet Back Pullover Sweater, $58 – Returned
Good lord… I just realized I’m wearing this top backwards!! Haha, how funny! Anyways, I’ve done really, really good stocking up on these lacy, winter sweaters from Stitch Fix, so I understand when my stylist said this one was “too perfect to pass up for you.” The truth is, though, I truly have enough sweaters filling my closet and honestly just don’t need another one! I’m sure I would have snapped this one up in December, but now, I think it’d be smarter to pass. Damn.
Do you agree with my decision to pass on all my items from this box, even though I lost out on my $20? My decision has been made, but I’m still curious!
