My last stitch fix box was spot on, almost too perfect for me I thought. So when I sent a note to my stylist for the next box to come, I asked for things like me, but a little edgy or different. I asked for help with different colors since I always choose the same ones that I love. I wanted more tops that weren’t too casual or too dressy. And I updated my Pinterest page with tops I liked or even loved that others had gotten from stitch fix. Here are some tops I pinned….
So I had a good feeling about this next box.
A few days ago, I got the email….my fix was on the way!!! Of course I couldn’t wait and peeked at what they sent to me on my stitch fix app.
Oh. Well. Um……..
Maybe I’ll just wait for the box. Surely it won’t be so bad when I try them on.
I got my fix today.
Ok, she’s right… I DID ask for something a bit away from my comfort zone. And more color.
But, I can’t. Just can’t do it. Not this one. It is just as bad as I anticipated. Words that come to mind when looking at/wearing this shirt include: Gidget, Baby-doll nightie, way too yellow, doily-esque….. and not me. For sure.
This feels too much like dental hygienist, surgical scrub, hospital gown style, paired with an interesting split halfway up each side. I don’t know how this could be flattering on me, and I’d need to sew it together before I actually wore it.
This top is reminiscent of the furniture I had in the basement of my very first house. Except the flowered pattern was brown, and instead of crocheted lace, there was wood trim. But still. Oddly high waist with that little ruffle thing all the way around is also not flattering.
Ding-ding-ding-ding!!! We have a winner! It’s the black top I pinned, and I love the notched detail around the neckline. Thank goodness one can never have too many black shirts. At least I won’t waste my $20 style fee, right??
Overall a disappointment, but I at least learned more about what things I definitely don’t like. So, maybe if that was my stylist trying to find options out of the box, we can walk a bit closer to the box, or maybe off to another side of the box. But get away from this area for sure.
No, I’m not giving up on stitch fix. I think I’ll try to pin more, and give lots of good constructive feedback on the things I don’t like. I know, I just KNOW at some point I’m going to be completely wowed.
