My last 2 fixes were flops and I sent everything back two months in a row (yikes!). So I decided I needed to do a rehab of my style profile and Pinterest board.
I deleted almost all of my old pins, spent an embarrassing amount of hours browsing Pinterest for fresh Stitch Fix pins, and left a note for my stylist to draw as much from my Pinterest board as she could.
And then I waited. My January box came a bit early, which was a nice surprise!
I hoped that good things came in small packages, but my Stitch Fix bundle was small for the middle of winter. Then again, when I took pictures today, it was 60 degrees and sunny. On January 21. Crazy!
(Btw, if you are new to Stitch Fix skip to the end of this post for a short description of the whats and how-tos & for a link to sign up for your own box of happiness!)
Kate, my stylist, sent 3 items straight off my Pinterest board! I was super excited to see the very coveted Olive & Oak Raglan top. And, spoiler alert, I’m tempted to keep all 5 items. But I’m getting ahead of myself & I want your input, so let’s check it out!
Item # 1: Le Lis Woodburn Lace Back Knit Top
Pulling this top out of the box, I immediately liked the jewel tone & lace detail.
Kate said that she sent a size up for extra length, which is great, but I felt like the top made me look a little pregnant since the front was so baggy.
But check out that LACE!
I’m on the fence about this one; what do you all think? If I keep it, I would go down a size.
Item # 2: Market & Spruce Wilco Solid Quilted Vest
This vest was from my Pinterest board. My initial thought was I liked it better in the photo than in person. It’s a little shiny in person.
It fits really well but is a little out of my style comfort zone.
But it did pair really nice with the raglan top Kate also sent. And looking at it in the pictures, I like the vest. This is the other item I’m on the fence about – thoughts?? Should I keep this?
Item # 3: Olive & Oak Mulliken Raglan Striped Knit Top
Oh my gosh you guys. I love this top.
Burgundy stripes!?! Yes, please! And it’s super soft.
I didn’t pin this version of this raglan top, but I love it! It’s a keeper!
Item # 4: Le Lis Adea Faux Suede Button Back Knit Top
This top was a surprise & I thought I wouldn’t be a fan because of the suede.
But as it turns out, I really love the cut & length of this top! Plus the button back detail is so fun!
This top improves on the basic black (or dark charcoal gray) shirt – I really love it. I’m fairly sure I’ll keep it, too!
Item # 5: Octavia Ellis Elephant Print Infinity Scarf
This was another item that I pinned on my board – it’s a little out of my comfort zone, too. Elephant print scarf!
Kate told me to pair it with the Le Lis Suede top & I did.
I think I might keep this scarf, too! It’s a fun print, it’s infinity (my favorite kind of scarf), and it’s cheap (for Stitch fix!).
My January fix was so much better than my previous 2 fixes have been. The fact I want to keep 3 out of 5 items right off the bat is unusual for me. I have until Monday to decide on the Jewel toned lace top & the gray vest – so let me know what you think!
