It had been over two years since I received my last fix when I signed up for a shipment a few weeks ago. I stopped receiving them because plain and simple, the items were a little outside my typical price range. However, now that I'm a Mommy, shopping for clothes has become inordinately more difficult than I anticipated. I know it sounds lame, but it's true. I have zero time after work to do any shopping because I have to head straight home to pick up Charlie and then on the weekends there is always the debate: Do I pack the stroller and try to navigate it through the narrow racks of clothing and try to fit it in the dressing room or do I wear my ErgoBaby carrier and put Charlie on the floor while I'm trying things on (Ew!)? I decided that the option of having cute things mailed to me was worth the heftier price tag and received Stitch Fix: Round 5 last week!
When filling out my style profile, I requested items that I could incorporate into my business casual work wardrobe. I also added the additional note that I was breastfeeding and would appreciate that the items I received were nursing-friendly. My stylist, Kelly, did a great job picking things out for me. My past fixes have been hit or miss, but she nailed it!
Here's what she sent me:
ITEM 1: Zad Marigold Arrow Bangle in Gold
I have pretty skinny wrists as it is, but I feel like this bracelet would be oversized on anyone! I loved the style, but there is no way I would be able to keep this thing from flying off my wrist.
ITEM 2: Market & Spruce Alan French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan in Grey
Because obviously I had to pose with a pumpkin! Kelly noticed that I had a nearly identical asymmetrical sweater on my Pinterest board, so she sent this to me. I loved the style, but it was a smidge too big. If I had gotten a size S, it probably would have been much harder to say "no" to, but alas, I wasn't crazy about the price or fit, so I bid it adieu.
ITEM 3: Liverpool Anita Skinny Pant in Black
ITEM 4: Market & Spruce Calmia Roll Tab Top in Off-White
Oh my goodness, the fit of these pants was divine. Unfortunately, I can barely justify spending $20 on a pair of pants, let alone $78. I did like the style and pattern of the top, but I felt like it made me look wider that I actually am. If it was more of a tunic, I'd be on board. Plus, it obviously wrinkles pretty easily which is problematic for me since I think I've used an iron like three times in my entire life.
ITEM 5: 41Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey Top in Dark Purple
Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner. This top fit me so well and was suuuuper comfy. Chuck actually pointed out that it would be a perfect top to wear to Thanksgiving, so I could hardly say no. Thanks, fashion forward Hubby! (If you ever saw my husband pick out clothes, you would know how funny this is).
