Summertime Stitch Fix
I actually liked all five items in this Fix, however I ended up sending four of them back for various reasons. I tried on the first three items together - a Papermoon Birch Lace Detail Blouse, Lila Ryan Dorianna Skinny Jeans, and Seychelles Nifty Woven Flat. I really liked the color of the jeans, but I'm not yet at a size that I feel comfortable in skinny jeans. The silver shoes were really cute, unfortunately they fit too tight across the top of my foot.
I think the Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse did not work well with my coloring and definitely didn't work with the Dear John Finnegan Printed Cuffed Shorts.
I liked the fit of the shorts and considered keeping them. I tried them out with a couple of other shirt, but couldn't come up with three outfits that worked for me. (My criteria for keeping an idea is that I can combine it with other pieces already in my wardrobe to create at least three distinctly different outfits that I like and are comfortable!)
So, the only I item I kept was the lace detail blouse, which I paired with capris and sandals for a summer night out. I've also worn this blouse with a blue skirt and heels to church, and think it will look great under a denim jacket when the weather turns cooler later this fall.
The great thing about Stitch Fix is that I don't have to go shopping!! Five items are delivered right to my door, with a prepaid return envelope ready for the items I decide not to keep. The $20 styling fee goes toward any items that I purchase.
I'm scheduling another fix next month! Want to join me?
(If you'd like to give Stitch Fix a try and link from my post, I'll earn a $25 credit as part of their referral service! However, I haven't received any incentive from Stitch Fix for this review.)
