Getting a Stitch Fix box gets me excited every single time. It’s fun to open a box full of surprises just for me. It’s like having Christmas and birthday every month, or every other month.
I received my Stitch Fix box on Wednesday of this past week. I opened it up with excitement as I do every time. This time when I opened up the box I found…
Item # 1:
The first thing I pulled out of the box was the Skies are Blue Renny Two Pocket Top for $58. This top is a red and navy flannel shirt. This was suggested because flannel is great for fall. Now anyone that knows me, knows that I do not wear flannel clothing. I do not like flannel, and to be honest, it doesn’t look good on me. But I am trying to find pieces that I would not usually wear so I gave it a try.
As predicted, this shirt was not a match for me. My fair skin was washed away by the dark red and navy colors. I can usually wear red and navy with no problem but this shirt was not flattering on me. I liked the fit of the shirt but the plaid was too much for me and I couldn’t get past that. So I sent it back.
Item # 2:
The second thing that I pulled out of the box was the Laila Jayde Quinne Hoodie Knit Top in Dark Purple for $58. I love wearing hoodies in the fall so I was very excited about this top. The material is incredibly soft.
After trying it on, I knew that this one was a keeper. I loved how it felt.
Item # 3:
The third thing I got out of the box was the 41Hawthorn Henri Surplice Ruche Sides Knit Top in light grey for $64. It’s a cross top sweater similar to one that I purchased a few months ago in red. This one is a ¾ sleeve.
When I tried this one on, I realized it was very thick which is not the best type of sweater for this southern weather. The front of the sweater bunched in the middle around my stomach. It was not flattering on me and made me self-conscious after having a baby. I chose to send this one back.
This item was the 41Hawthorn Gideon Polka Dot Sweater in Off-White for $68. I pulled this sweater out and looked at it for a minute. I was trying to convince myself that I needed to be optimistic and see if it looked better on than it did at that moment.
I tried it on with as open of a mind as I could. But it was not a good look for me. I know that this type of sweater is the new style and that many young women love to wear it with color jeans. Well, I’m not one of those young women. First of all I do not wear color jeans and this sweater made me feel like I was wearing my grandma’s sweater. It was baggy around the shoulders and felt uncomfortable to me. I sent this one back as well. The note from my stylist said that she found this sweater on my Pinterest board. Well, I didn’t remember that so I went to look. I did not see anything like this so I’m not sure what inspired her to pick this item. Hopefully my board can inspire a little differently next time.
This item was the 41Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey Top in Black for $48. I have this top pinned in white on Pinterest. I was excited to try this one on and was hopeful that I liked the fit and it did actually look good on me, not just on the person in the picture. (Ever have one of those moments?)
After trying this one on, I knew I was going to keep it. I loved everything about this top. It was soft, long (I hate short shirts), and fit really nicely on me. It was a dressy top I could wear out (on any of the few times we actually go out). I had to keep this one.
To sum up…
41Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey Top in Black

My next Stitch Fix is scheduled in two months so hopefully I can find something great for this winter. Come back to see what was in the next box.
