February Fix Review

My February fix arrived a little early! Wonderful!

As a reminder…

Stitch Fix, for those who haven’t seen the bazillions of advertisements on Facebook, is a clothing subscription service. I pay $20 for a stylist to style me based off of a style profile I filled out, my Pinterest page, and any notes I deem necessary (like informing them of an upcoming trip, wedding, or formal event). They then send me five items of clothing that I can try on in the comfort of my own home. Within three days, I can choose to purchase the items or send them back in a prepaid bag. If I keep all the items I get a 25% discount, and my $20 styling fee is always applied to my purchase.

I wasn’t overly disappointed with this fix, but I wasn’t jumping for joy either. I only ended up keeping one out of the five items sent to me.

So my keeper:

Plum colored 41 Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey top paired with my skirt from the last fix.

This is the 41 Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey Top. Like my stylist Briana said, “this may be a little out of your comfort zone, but it’s a great, lightweight top that can be worn with jeans or dressed up…”

It was a little out of my comfort zone, but after trying it on and wearing it around, I can safely say this is my new favorite shirt. First of all, I love jersey material. It is so soft, and it keeps me cool in the Florida heat. The first day it got here, the weather was up to 75 (IN JANUARY! STOP!) and I had to head out for a lab meeting. I put it on, and it didn’t feel heavy or sweaty at all. Also, I have a really long torso compared to my legs, so this kept me nice and   covered.

The rest:

Loveappella’s Addison Knit Top. I thought it had great colors, but it felt a little tight across the stomach and I hated the little collar. If it was up, I looked like a frat bro trying to pop my collar, but if it was down, it wouldn’t stay down. Very frustrating.

The Renee C Shayna Graphic Print Blouse was also a bust. The neckline wasn’t working for me, and it made my shoulders look so broad. I wasn’t a huge fan of the sleeves either.

The Market & Spruce Celine Textured Colorblock Blouse was one that I hoped would fit. It was great in almost every way except for the shoulders. The style of the neckline mixed with the straight lines of color on the blouse gave me very broad, square shoulders. I just couldn’t pull it off. Also, I’m not a huge fan of the texture on this one.

I also received a pair of Mavi’s Freida Regular Length Skinny Jeans. I didn’t take a picture, but they were just plain black. I had to send them back because the inseams were 4 inches too long 😦 Yep, I have short legs. They also felt tighter than I like in the thighs. I like my skinny jeans to have a little give to ’em!

Well, that’s it for February! My next fix should be in March, and I’m going to ask for some shorts and something with a lot more color! If you feel like trying Stitch Fix, you can use my referral link. If you do, you’ll get cool clothes and I’ll get $25 to feed my fix addiction 😉
