I couldn’t help myself. After getting all giddy about receiving my first fix last month, I had to give it another shot. Plus, I had asked my mother-in-law for a gift card to Stitch Fix (<–referral link) for Christmas, which she did end up getting me.
Since my first fix, I’ve created a Pinterest board designated for my stylist (I’m hoping as I continually add to it, the better they’ll get at understanding my style and/or the looks I’m going for), and made sure to give the best feedback I can so they can build on it in the future. Although I still have a lot to learn.
But… I am completely sold on the concept of people picking out clothes for you and having them sent to your front door. After going to the mall last Saturday and being annoyed with how busy it was, I just made Stitch Fix that much more appealing. I clearly am a hermit at heart. Now I would like to show you what was sent to me in my second fix!
First up, was the Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse from Collective Concepts ($54).
This was sent to me based on an image I had pinned to my board. And although I loved the look on the blogger from the original image, I didn’t exactly like the look on me.
Maybe it’s just my body or the top itself, but I found it made me look really boxy (because I actually do have a torso below, I promise haha!).
Or maybe I just have no idea what I’m actually looking for in terms of style!
Next up was the Mira Skinny Jean from Liverpool ($78).
At first, I didn’t know how I felt about a pair of pants there were high-waisted and had no zipper, but they did win in the super comfy department. I just don’t know if I can get over the fact that you put them on without unbuttoning anything. It almost made them feel like maternity pants because they were so high-waisted and stretchy. And let’s just say that I’m not ready for anything maternity-related quite yet! Plus, I felt like they made me look bigger in the hips and that’s not the look I’m going for – I’m actually trying to achieve the opposite!
And a side note: If you remember from my last fix, I received a pair of jeans that I did enjoy, but they were too big. Well, I had gotten an email asking if I wanted to receive them again in a smaller size, or get a new pair altogether. I somehow don’t know where the email went (I only found out that it even existed when I received another email asking to rate the first email and it included what the original email said), so I never had a chance to respond (sorry, stylish!). All in all, I’m actually glad they sent another pair of pants because as much as I liked the first pair, I was interested to see more!
Next was the Farris Faceted Stone Statement Necklace from Pixley ($38).
Again, my stylist was trying to go off the above look I liked from the other blog, where I could pair this with the top, and I totally appreciated that she was trying to maximize my items together! I’ve never owned a statement necklace before but totally fell in love with the idea of them to dress up shirts once I had it around my neck. I’m pretty sure Nia loved it also.
Next up was the Lottie Scarf Print 3/4 Sleeve Blouse by Daniel Rainn ($68).
This top was not screaming ‘me.’ I didn’t love the colors and patterning, plus, the sleeves would be really hard to keep rolled up due to fabric. I think I might need to avoid ‘flowy’ tops in the future (even though it’s what I indicated I wanted) because they just are not working for me. I also wasn’t loving the price on this top. It seemed a bit steep to me.
And finally, the Janette Fitted Open Cardigan by BRIXTON IVY ($54).
If only I liked short tops/sweaters because the color and fabric were spots on, but I just hate short anything. And the cardigan, itself, seemed too plain and style-less.
Just nothing to it! Plus, I wasn’t all that thrilled with the price tag attached to this piece either!
So overall, here’s what I ended up doing:
- Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse from Collective Concepts = PASS
- Mira Skinny Jean from Liverpool = PASS
- Farris Faceted Stone Statement Necklace from Pixley = KEEP
- Lottie Scarf Print 3/4 Sleeve Blouse by Daniel Rainn = PASS
- Janette Fitted Open Cardigan by BRIXTON IVY = PASS
I really did love the necklace, plus, I didn’t want to lose the $20 styling credit, so I went with it only (poor, lonely necklace). It does kind of stink that I didn’t get any clothing pieces from this fix, but from what I’ve heard, it does take a couple of times for your stylist to get to know you and your style. I’ll hang in there, little fix!
Plus, I know I’m only two fixes in AND still very indecisive about what I even want to wear AND still improving my Pinterest board, so I’m hopeful that future fixes will, indeed, turn out a bit better.
I am really enjoying the service though and could see how you can become addicted. I’m already thinking ahead to the next time I decide to order!
Do you like to take risks in the style department?
