Stitch Fix August 2015 Part 2 (Fix No. 8)
This is my true August fix, as my first one actually arrived in July. This one came on my Anniversary, so it felt like Stitch Fix was sending me a gift.
What I Asked For:
I don’t remember what I wrote in my note this time (and forgot to take a screenshot), but I believe I asked for army green pants. I don’t think I asked for anything else specific, as I wanted to be surprised.
What I Received:
When I pulled this out and saw it was burgundy, I was happy. I envisioned wearing it with jeans and my Rag & Bone booties on the weekend while drinking coffee (NOT a pumpkin spice latte). Alas, when I tried this on, it just did not work. The cowl neck looked all wrong on me. The material was also pretty sheer. See below for proof:
Yes, that’s my hand that you can see through the material. You would definitely need to wear something underneath this.
Material: 90% Acrylic/10% Nylon
Care Instructions: Hand Wash/Dry Flat
If you like it: The ivory version of this sweater was sold on Bluefly and you can enter your email to see if it becomes available. I don’t think the sweater is worth the money, however, so, if you’re looking for a similar sweater, try this one.
I LOVED this jacket as I went to try it on. Moto jackets are very in this fall and the material was perfect. So why didn’t I keep it? It was cropped and hit on the wrong place on my body. It just wasn’t very flattering and I knew I wouldn’t wear it much. I’d rather save my money for something I like better.
Material: 100% Cotton
Care Instructions: Hand Wash/Tumble Dry
As Kimberly noted, I love fit and flare dresses. I also adore patterns, particularly contrasting ones, so figured this dress would be right up my alley. There is something about Taylor Dresses, however, that does not quite work with my body. The waist hits me in the wrong spot and makes me look pregnant. Perhaps it would help me score a seat on the Metro though . . . (Who am I kidding. Even when I was nine months pregnant, people did not give up their seat for me.)
Material: Top: 68% Polyester/30% Rayon/2% Spandex Skirt: 95% Polyester/5% Spandex
Care Instructions: Dry Clean
The pros of these pants: the color (I wanted army pants) and the fact that they weren’t too long!
The cons: They were very tight in the leg and not flattering. I also did not like the cargo pockets.
Material: 98% Cotton/2% Spandex
Care Instructions: Machine Wash/Tumble Dry
I don’t know how it’s possible, but I don’t own any scarves (other than scarves intended for wearing out in the winter). I thought this one was cute and I liked that it came with instructions on how to properly wear it:
This is the first time in some time that I only kept one item. That said, I’m not disappointed with the Fix. I’m not going to love everything and most of the items were almost keepers, if something had just been slightly changed (e.g., the way the dress hit at the waist or the tightness of the Kut from the Kloth pants). What did you like about your fixes?
