In rare fashion, this month’s Stitch Fix box was full of items that I could not decide between! In my previous months’ boxes, there was always one item I liked significantly more than the others. It just figures that right after I go on a budget, my box is full of a few really great picks, huh? (Also, for all of you who are totally calling me out for NOT canceling my Stitch Fix… I failed. First, I accidentally forgot to cancel this fix even though I did cancel my regular subscription. Second, I decided that since this is my favorite subscription product, maybe I’ll make it my big “fun fund” treat for the month.)
So I’m here to ask your guys’ help! I actually have to “check out” and make a selection today, so tell me quickly – which of my May box below do you think I should keep and which should I return? I’d really like to narrow it down to one selection.
To fill you in in case you’ve missed this massive blogger trend, Stitch Fix is 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. Here’s what I received this month:
Market & Spruce Aleah V-Neck Heathered Dolman Sleeve Shirt, Size Medium, $48 – Keep or Return?
I really wanted to like this the moment I pulled it out of the box. It’s incredibly soft and I love this sea green color. That being said, the style is a little weird. It’s got that “bat wing” flap under the arms, which I always find to be a bit strange, plus it’s loose around the middle and tight and stretchy on the bottom. I can’t tell, am I supposed to pull it down or have it up with fabric hanging lose around my stomach? This could also been the sort of top that I’d never wear or the sort of top I’d randomly find myself wearing constantly… who knows?!
Kut From the Kloth Danya Skinny Jean, Size 6, $88 – Keep or Return?
I would have sworn that I would never like a pair of jeans that Stitch Fix sent me, not only because is it hard to find jeans that fit without trying them on, but because I’m weirdly picky when it comes to this item of clothing. That being said, I absolutely love these. They’re a little bit stretchy, very soft, and the little rolled ankles are an adorable twist on traditional skinny jeans. I wear jeans almost every day, so I know these would get a lot of use if I purchased them, but they are a bit pricy.
Loveappella Amanda Twist Back Knit Top, Medium, $48 – Returned
This was a very pretty top, but just not for me. It is very soft and flowy, and I actually think it’s fairly flattering. That being said, cobalt isn’t exactly my favorite color on my body, and tank tops just don’t get a lot of wear in my closet. I wish I had taken a picture of the back, which had a pretty fabric hole around my shoulder blades. Like I said, pretty top – just not for me.
Collective Concepts Mikoh Crochet Strap Top, Size Medium, $58 – Returned
Oof, no, this one is just not working. I see why my stylist picked it out, because it does have that flower-girl-boho look that I love, but I’m really not fond of the pattern and the cut is just not very flattering on me. This was a no-brainer return.
Bay to Baubles Garner Stone and Feather Pendant Necklace, $34 – Keep or Return?
Stitch Fix has been absolutely killing it with their jewelry selection for me, and this necklace is no exception. I love the color, length, and entire style of this piece. The only reason I’m hesitating is that I’ve recently bought a fair amount of jewelry that’s similar to this – Free People / Lucky Brand looking necklaces, long in length, with little gems or dangles on the end. Plus, Reg has brought me back loads of jewelry from South America! That being said, it’s only another $14 after my styling fee, so it’s definitely the most budget-friendly option.
So tell me, what are you favorite pieces on me? Which one should I keep? I need help deciding!
