once again, i’ve dropped the ball on my stitch fix posts. i think i’ve had two fixes since my last update – oops. but i’m back, with my best score to date.
so we will start with what i sent back:
in this awkward photo, in which both my head and feet are cut off, i’m trying to show you that i don’t like the neckline. it’s not good for me and my big chest. it reminds me of a kardashian. not the dress, but the neckline. i also happen to own two other red and blue sleeveless dresses (that’s embarassing) so this one was easy to send packing.
this post is noteworthy because i am not only wearing makeup (i know!) but i wore shoes with each ensemble. it’s like a revolution or something. moving on to the dress. i think i’m just not a fan of the see-through, hi-lo, trend that is currently…everywhere. i mean, i’ve seen it work on some people, but it’s not for me. also, the under-layer in the above BARELY covered my tush. (and i have a cream and black maxi…oy). and i’m rarely a fan of a rope belt. see ya!
i’m 99% sure i had this skirt at some point in high school. mom, can you confirm? it’s stretch cotton and polka dot and just not me/age appropriate/anything i would ever wear…ever. AND it has a drop waist. yeah, no. BUT….trying on this skirt did remind me i have these ridiculous rachel-zoe-esque sky high wedges that i need to make more use of. so all was not lost.
okay now is when things get interesting.
before we get all crazy – i sent this dress back too. I KNOW. i’m sorta regretting it but…i couldn’t figure out where i would wear it. also, the waist hit me too low. it was like all of a sudden i became short waisted…which i’m not. the color was amazing and it made me realize i should go for cobalt blue (i never go for blue) and also i should wear heels all the time because look at my legs! but i don’t wear heels all the time and the dress didn’t look quite the same in my go-to flip flops. also the material felt a little bit like wearing a wetsuit…just saying.
so now for what did keep. best.stitchfix.item.ever.
i’m not going to lie. i knew i was keeping this before i even tried it on. that belt. i die. it’s just. it’s perfect. this dress is the perfect example of why i love me some stitch fix. in my last fix (which i forgot t blog about) i got a cute little light blue skirt with the same print – penguins. i loved the print but the skirt was a bit big and a lot of money for a “cute skirt.” when i wrote my feedback i mentioned that i loved the print. and then this time around, same print – PERFECT dress. i love the collar detail. and the fit. i thought about wearing it to my sister-in-law’s shower this weekend but it feels a little dressy (but i might not be able to resist) so i’ll save it for something else. want to hire me to give a presentation on social media? i’m there – and dressed to kill!
if you haven’t tried out stitch fix yet – now is the time. i mean between the blue dress (which i should have kept) and the penguin dress…how can you resist?Read More
