STITCH FIX | Rounds 8 + 9

August was a sad month for Stitch Fix. I was excited about their launch of Stitch Fix Kids and thought it was perfect timing to get Crosby a fix for his 2nd birthday in September. However, a couple days before his fix was scheduled to ship, I received a customer service email that basically said they didn't have enough inventory and I could choose whether I wanted Crosby's fix cancelled or postponed. I figured it would be easier to just go out and buy something myself on another website, so I cancelled Crosby's fix. Womp.

I was also unhappy with my own August fix, but before we dive into that, let's journey back to July so I can show you what I got in my eighth fix!



STITCH FIX ROUND 8 | JULY 2018


I was still working on building up my professional wardrobe in July, so I requested lots of blouses and put in a specific request for a nude wedge- something I've been struggling to find. Here's what I got:

H&C COLLECTION
Westcott Crossfront Top



Although I was a little concerned with how low-cut this top was, I felt like the tassels did a pretty good job of covering up my ladies. Not to mention, I loved the color of this blouse!
Verdict: Keep

FUN2FUN
Rouland V-Neck Blouse



I loved the fit and the flutter sleeves. Plus, this top goes well with the navy dress pants I received in my last fix!
Verdict: Keep

FUN2FUN
Kedzie Henley Top



I was a little unsure of this one before trying it on. I thought it might be a little too loose-fitting or old ladyish. But once I tried it on, I was sold.
Verdict: Keep

MIX BY 41 HAWTHORN
Prisca Knit Dress
&
TOMS
Monica Fabric Espadrille Wedge



This fix was a perfect example of why you should never judge a book by its cover. I loved that my stylist answered my request for a nice wedge and I happen to love Toms, so I thought this was a match made in heaven. But once I tried them on, I just didn't like them at all. I'm not a fan of peep-toe shoes (strange, I know) and the denimy blue color was just not doing it for me. The dress I just all around did not like. I disliked the neckline and felt like it was too matronly.
Verdict: Return & return

STITCH FIX ROUND 9: AUGUST 2018


Ugh. This fix. I was already toying with the idea of taking a break from Stitch Fix for a month or two, but this dud of a fix sealed the deal for me. Fortunately, I had ordered some of their "extras" in this fix- a nude cami and a pair of stockings. Had I not gotten those two things, I would have lost my $20 styling fee. There was not a single thing in my fix that I liked, so I was prepared to sacrifice my $20 and remain empty-handed. I just wasn't going to spend the extra money to purchase something I was settling for and didn't love. So here's what I got:

MARKET & SPRUCE
Juuna Hi Lo Knit Top
&
ONE5ONE
Prue Ponte Bootcut Trouser



In the pictures, this top looked really boring and plain. Although it was admittedly cozy when I tried it on, it looked...really boring and plain. As for the pants, my stylist wrote, "I know you prefer a skinny silhouette, but we are seeing a lot of wider leg pants for the upcoming fall season." Call me clueless when it comes to fashion, but I know what I like and I stick to it. I like my skinnies, and I'm not ready to jump back on the bootcut train, so these were a big fat no (even without the sizing issues!).
Verdict: Return & return

41 HAWTHORN
Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan



I could some more cardigans to transition into fall and I did like the color, but the material seemed kind of cheap and I worried how this would hold up long-term. This was a no based on quality.
Verdict: Return

DJ & JUJU
Francie Back Detail Pullover




This sweater was the biggest disappointment, because the truth was I actually liked it!...from the front. The back was a no-go for me. It looked cheap and sloppy to me, not something a put-together professional would wear (in my humble opinion). So as much as it saddened me, I bid adieu to this sweater, as well.
Verdict: Return

PAPERMOON
Wendilyn Knit Maxi Dress



I did request a black or red dress for an upcoming family photo session we're having. However, this dress was a less flattering version of a dress I already own, so I passed.
Verdict: Return

So, what do you think? Was my last fix as much of a dud as I thought it was or am I just being melodramatic?

P.S. You may have noticed my wall color change in between fixes- stay tuned for a master bedroom tour!
