Y’all may remember how disappointed I was with my last Stitch Fix. Well, Stitch Fix personally reached out to me and proved again that they have excellent customer service. They asked if I would be willing to have a ‘redo’ of my last fix, expediting the timeline, refunding the $20 styling fee from the last failed fix and hand selecting a stylist for me based on my style requests. I am so glad I took them up on it because Jenni B, my new stylist, definitely understands what I want! All the pieces feel right within my style preferences.
The first item I had to put on, the Renne C Alyssia Halter Paisley Dress, was chosen because Jenni thought the colors would work well with my skin tone, and I think she is right on! What she didn’t know is how much I like this cut of neckline/halter. I have always felt like I have fairly broad shoulders and this cut flatters that feature. I really like that this one will be a great transitional dress – easily going from summer to fall. Additional benefit, I don’t think I would have picked this paisley for myself – getting me out of my comfort zone of solids. It does remind me of a favorite green paisley dress that I had in high school that I loved so very much. This was Jason’s favorite piece.
Next, the Loveappella Meelah Tulip Hem Maxi Skirt. This one is Made in America (yay!) and I love the bright blue cobalt and the fun tulip opening. Sadly, it’s that super thin jersey that shows every underwear line and stomach pooch. It’s totally my style, just not my fabric!
Staying in the colbalt color family, Kut from the Kloth Murphy Colorblock Button-Up Blouse is exactly what I mean when I think tailored, architectural and flattering. The color blocking feels super slimming and very appropriate for work to play. The white panel is sheer but it was easily fixed by wearing a nude tank.
And the Pomelo Nolen Printed Detail Henley Tank. This is a good example of why I ask Jason to photograph me in the items. It felt great on, I liked what I saw in the mirror, love the colors, details and patterns, but I’m not sure that I like the way it looks on in the photo! The ruching under the bust and the hemline don’t look as flattering as I felt like they did – maybe overemphasizing that I am trying to conceal and area of my body that I don’t love.
Last, the 41Hawthorn Paris Embroidery & Colorblock Detail Top. Love the colors, the cut and the embroidery, but I feel like the color block at the bottom is not figure flattering. Looking at the photo confirms that it emphasizes the muffin top area a bit more than I would like.
Love these styles – I feel so much better about this experience than my last! The styles and colors were right ones, the fits just a little off in a couple of the pieces. I feel comfortable in asking anyone that is considering to try Stitch Fix to use my referral link – and you can ask for Jenni B. as your stylist if you feel like she did a good job interpreting my style!
So what do you think of this fix? What do you think I should keep?
