If you're reading in Feedly or from your email, click on over for a second - this little space has gotten a major overhaul!
I've been writing here for about a year and a half now and it was definitely time for a change. Even though the design had slowly evolved over time, I had never really refreshed the whole look. I was ready for something sleeker and more streamlined, and I'm really happy with the result! Go ahead - click around and get comfortable in the new space.
Anyway, enough about that ;) Let's move on to the fun part of today's post - Stitch Fix number six! If you're new around here, Stitch Fix is basically a personal styling service - for $20, they send a box to your doorstep with five different items. The $20 goes towards anything in the box, and you just keep what you want and send back what you don't. Easy peasy!
The clothes that Stitch Fix usually sends are a little more expensive than what I would normally buy for myself, but in most cases the quality matches the price tag. For me, it's also a good way to branch out of my normal Loft/Target/Old Navy cycle, so it's worth occasionally splurging on! I end up getting a box about every other month, and you can read some of my past reviews here.
For this Fix, I asked for clothes that could transition into spring and summer from the cold weather we're having right now, and they hit the nail on the head. They sent me two tank tops, one blouse, one dress, and a pair of earrings. I'm wishing that I had taken some better pictures for ya, but oh well. I also didn't hang on to the names or designers before I sent my box back...so we are really winging it this morning ;) Ready for the rundown?
1. Green Tab Sleeve Shirt.
This one surprised me - at first I wasn't a fan, but it grew on me really quickly. I hardly own anything green, and I did like this shade a lot. The shirt was definitely longer in the back than I normally like shirts to be, though, and so ultimately I sent it back.
2. Crochet Tank.
This top had me on the fence as well - I really liked it a lot when I pulled it out of the box. The layers of crochet were gorgeous, and the fact that it was such a neutral color made me think that I would get a lot of wear out of it. I do have a very similar cream-colored top, though, and so this tank ended up being more expensive ($58!!) than it was worth. Sent it back.
3. Chevron Dress.
First of all, taking pictures of yourself in a full-length mirror is the hardest. Once I backed far enough away from the mirror to get the whole dress, I felt like I was miles away. So here's me waving to the far-away mirror.
I actually thought this dress was super cute - I wish it had fit a little better! The color was a bright orang-y pink in person, and the chevron detail was really subtle and delicate. I liked it a lot, and I really liked the way the hemline scooped. The top of the dress and the shoulders were just too big, though, and that made it fit awkwardly. Sent it back.
I wish the picture did this tank top justice - it's gorgeous! It's navy and just a little bit flowy, with gold buttons in the front and a really cool lace detail on the back. I think it will be perfect for a casual summer night out, or to wear with a cardigan to the office! Kept it.
5. Bow Stud Earrings.
Can we just talk about how adorable these are? They're not my style at all, but I wish I could pull them off because I would have loved to keep them. I knew I would never be able to rock them, though - so sent them back.
The average price of the items in this last box was a little higher than it's normally been for me, so I tried really hard to just keep one item. It took me a while to decide, but I'm really happy with the navy tank top! What do you think - did I keep the right thing? Should I have kept something else instead?
If you're thinking of trying out Stitch Fix for yourself, I highly recommend it. Some boxes are better than others, but it's always a fun treat! Follow this link to sign up, and let me know how it turns out.
That's all I have for today, friends - let me know what you think about the new look or about this box, and enjoy your weekend!
Love y'all. That's all.
