I was pleasently surprised with my second Stitch Fix box.
I had peeked at my on-line checkout form before my box arrived. The link to it appears on the website, once the package ships. Not all of the items were pictured on their website. I proceeded to research the items on the Internet. Before my box even arrived, I was beginning to form an opinion and tried to guess if there would be a single item I would keep. However, I still had a high level of anticipation before it was delivered and tried to keep an open mind.
My box arrived as scheduled, on the Saturday before Memorial Day. On the style sheet, included in the package, there is a personalized note. I was glad it was from the same stylist as my first fix. She acknowledged some of the previous feedback I had given. I hope to continue to have the same stylist. I felt she was definitely tuned into what I was looking for.
I plan on keeping two of the five items sent. I thought I would share with you, my thoughts on each item.
(1) I requested a cardigan to go with the burgundy sundress from my first Fix. The stylist explained, in her note, that she currently did not have a cardigan for the sundress, but would keep it in mind. She did however, include a ‘pretty soft orange cardigan’ that coordinates with other items in this Fix. However, it is too large/long for me.
(2) The navy Margaret M Christiana Textured Pencil Skirt, the most expensive item at $78, is not lined, but is made of heavy enough material that gives and is machine washable. It is a slip-on. I feel it is a little pricey. However, it is versatile and I can see wearing different tops with it.
(3) The Bay To Baubles, Lanie Hammered Metal Hoops at $28 looked lovely, but I’m not sure about the metal. If they were silver or silver plated, I may have kept them.
(4) The, lined, Ana Cold Shoulder Dress was way too large for me. I’m not sure such an open top would be the best style for me.
(5) The Papermoon Norris Split Neck Blouse is very ‘breezy’. It really adds a nice pop of color. It is not lined and is hand-wash only. The back is slightly longer than the front.
I decided to keep the pencil skirt and blouse. I returned the cardigan, earrings and dress.
Even though I did not keep all of the items, I was pleased with the items I kept. I understand it is a coordinated effort and every item in a box might not work. I have gotten some good ideas that I wouldn’t have thought about.
“Fix” is an apropos term, because I can see how one might become addicted to scheduling them!
