My March 2017 Stitch Fix: Prints for Spring

23 Mar

When I last posted about Stitch Fix in January, I was kind of disappointed in my Fix, but ended up with a sweater that I really liked. Well, somebody else used my referral code, so I figured let’s do this thing again! I mean, even if it sucks… it’s still fun, right?

I clicked around on the #stitchfix tag on Instagram and saw that a lot of people were posting some fabulous springy florals and I wanted to get in on that. So, when I ordered my Fix, here’s what I told my stylist:

“I’m seeing lots of beautiful springy floral tops and maxi dresses on the Stitch Fix hashtag on Instagram, so let’s do a whole Fix of those! Think Boho!”

I was hoping that by not getting set on particular items, like I did in January my expectations would be lower and I’d be more open-minded to what was sent over.

Want to see what I got?

Item #1: Brixon Ivy Sylvester Split Neck Blouse, $54

While this isn’t a springy floral, I actually do have a need for some solid colored blouses to wear to work. This has a flowy fit and the sleeves are sewn into that tab-sleeve look that I like. I think it’s pretty styled with both jeans and a skirt, but it’s a little stiff in the shoulders area. I’d also prefer a different color…maybe something more jewel toned? All in all, it’s okay but not a winner.

Item #2: Gilli Tahj 2fer Knit Maxi Dress, $78

It looks like I’m standing crooked, but I’m totally not. It’s the wonky fabric placement on the bottom half of this dress. It’s such a shame, because the top is cute and the maxi dress has promise, but the fabric on the bottom is SO UGLY and also feels like super thin swimsuit material. This one was very easy to throw back into the return box!

Item #3: Napean Sea RD Dazzie Henley Style Blouse, $58

I didn’t realize that this top was transparent until I saw my white belly shining through in the photos. I like the three-quarter sleeves and super flowy cut of this top, but I don’t love the pattern or the fact that I’d have to double up with a shirt underneath.

Item #4: Daniel Rainn Albado Crew Neck Blouse, $58

I do have a love for Daniel Rainn, but it’s so hard for me to justify paying full price for the brand considering that I can buy a similar top at Nordstrom Rack for $20 – $25 (see!). So it’s good that I don’t love this blouse. The pattern is pretty and is totally great for spring, but the neckline comes up so high that it is uncomfortable on me. Also, there is nothing special about it at all to justify the $58 price tag.

Item #5: Pixley Eisenhower Strappy Top, $48

Here’s another fun patterned top like I want for spring, however this one has spaghetti straps which really confuse the whole bra situation. I could totally do what the cool kids are doing and wear a lacy bra meant to be seen… but I’m 39 years old. So, no. It looks okay with the sweater, but to be honest I feel like I could buy something similar for $5 at Forever 21.

My Final Thoughts
Well, it was another underwhelming Fix from Stitch Fix. I hate just throwing away that $20 styling fee, but I also hate buying stuff that I never want to wear. So, it looks like everything from this Fix is going back into the return box.

Do you think I made the right choice?

    I don’t know….I’m loving that last strappy top! Really pretty color on you and, hello, strapless bra! I get it, the girls get heavy (I’m a 38c), but Victoria’s Secret has some really good strapless bras now! Keep!

      Thanks Sandra! I’m not a fan of strapless bras at all. I do like the color and pattern though!

    I agree with all of your assessments on this fix. I like #4 on you, but the neck does seem high and who wants to feel like they’re choking all day long. Also this – ” I could totally do what the cool kids are doing and wear a lacy bra meant to be seen… but I’m 39 years old. So, no. It looks okay with the sweater, but to be honest I feel like I could buy something similar for $5 at Forever 21.” YES. I am doing many double-takes lately seeing all the VISIBLE lacy bras around. Nope. I also don’t like spaghetti straps for the same reason, I can’t NOT wear a bra…so. nope! Thanks for showing us!

      Thanks for your comments! I’m not a fan of the showing bra straps either… probably because I already did it when Gwen from No Doubt made it cool in 1996! =)
