What could possibly be better than new clothes? Answer: having a personal stylist that selects items she thinks will be perfect for you and SHIPS those items directly to your door. Sound too good to be true? It’s not! Stitch Fix is the online styling service for women and they do just that! My 19th shipment from this amazing company arrived this week and the items that my personal stylist, Layla, selected for me were as beautiful as ever. Enough talk, let’s dive right into the clothes.
The moment I opened my fix to reveal this stack of gorgeous fabrics, I knew instantly that Layla had outdone herself once again. I have some serious spring fever happening over here in Michigan right now and I just about drooled over the colors and textures that she thought would be perfect for me. Layla had definitely done her homework and scouted out My Style board on Pinterest. I couldn’t try these clothes on fast enough!
I have a serious color crush on peach and blush so I gravitated first toward the Gilli Airy Knit Sweater from Mak ($48).
I loved the lightweight casual knit and I tried the sweater on with a light colored casual pair of flare leg jeans and a pair of gold sandals. The combination was so gorgeous and the color palate was like a breath of fresh air.
I absolutely loved the color and texture of this sweater but it was just a touch too short and too boxy for me. I know people are going to leave a ton of comments telling me I should of kept the sweater. I agree that it is gorgeous and very much my style, but if a top is boxy on me, I will always talk myself out of wearing it and this sweater is way too pretty to get buried in the back of my closet.
The next item I tried on was the Pinson Drape Cardigan from Brixon Ivy ($54). Oh, my word. This is a fabulous cardigan. I’m pretty sure it came straight from fashion heaven.
Any time I dress, I try to balance out the top and bottom of my outfit. One part should be fitted and the other should not be. Since this cardigan had a lot of beautiful drape, I wore it with a sequenced off-white tank and a pair of skinny jeans.
There are no words for how much I love this cardigan. It’s so feminine and the heather gray color puts an interesting casual spin on it.
My gold sandals and white ceramic Fossil watch also looked fabulous with the ensemble.
This cardigan was definitely a keeper!
Next up was the Lyla Skirt from Gili ($48). At first, I wasn’t sure what to make of this skirt. The heather gray cotton fabric put a distinctly casual spin on this item. Yet it was pleated and lined; which meant that it was good quality. I was determined to give this skirt a chance.
I’m not going to lie. At first, I had no idea what to wear with the skirt. On a whim, I kept on the Pinson Drape Cardigan and just added some nude pointed toe heels. Strangely, I didn’t think it was awful. It did violate my rule of mixing fitted items and draped items on top and bottom, but it wasn’t bad. Well, the shoe color was bad. But the clothes weren’t.
I dug a little deeper in my closet and decided to play it conservative with a black beaded cardigan over a white tank. I also added black patent leather heels.
The ensemble was conservative, but the heather texture of the skirt added a pop of fun to the outfit . I am a faculty advisor for NJHS at my school and inductions are coming up. Last year I had the worst time selecting an outfit to wear for the event. I wanted to wear a dress and look professional. Unfortunately, all of my dresses are either formal or casual. There is no in between. Until now. I think I have the perfect skirted outfit to wear at inductions this year.
The fourth item included in my fix was a Bixby Dot Print 3/4 Tab Sleeve Blouse from Pixley ($48). I Instantly fell in love with the colors and the playful print.
The blouse was simply gorgeous when I tried it on.
Much like the Gilli Airy Knit Sweater that I tried on a decided to return, this top was also a bit boxy. It didn’t look bad on me, but it did resemble a maternity top. I wasn’t trying to look pregnant in this photo, but I kind of do.
I’m so torn because I didn’t look pregnant from every angle while I wore the top and it was really beautiful (and comfortable!). I have to make up my mind soon, but I am so undecided about whether to keep or return the blouse.
What do you think I should do?
The fifth and final item included in my fix was the Vivienne Floral Print Sleeveless Blouse from Daniel Rainn ($68). I had told Layla that I was loving all things feminine (especially floral prints), but I wasn’t sold on this blouse right away. It was a little to… vibrant. I’m drawn to soft colors right now and I was certain that this item was going right back to Stitch Fix.
And then I tried it on.
And guess what?
I kind of loved it. The fabric was light and airy and the arm holes weren’t too big (a common problem for me).
I also liked that the blouse was longer in the back which provided a little extra coverage.
I always love to add layers so I wore a white cardigan over the blouse and it was still gorgeous.
And just like that, an unwanted blouse became a keeper.
