stitch fix review #2...

I received my second Stitch Fix order this week!

This time I asked for a bunch of specific items and I thought the stylist did a really great job trying to find pieces to fit my requests.

I also changed my style profile settings to clothing only--no accessories.  I don't like to spend a lot on trendy jewelry and scarves.  I'm happy with my Target and Forever 21 finds. :)

Once again, pardon my hurried photos.  Naptime is short and I've got to get my returns in the mail.

Market & Spruce Dash Button-Front Chambray Shirt (returned)
I asked for a chambray shirt that was more tunic style, than full button down.  The fabric was soooo high quality--amazing to the touch.  Unfortunately, I struggle to find button downs that fit well and this one was no exception.  Too small across the chest.  I also decided I didn't love the color...I think I would prefer a grayer chambray.

Ezra Ritz Mixed Pattern Front Pocket Knit Shirt (returned)
The mixed prints are so cute and I had some tees just like this on my Pinterest board, so I really wanted to like this.  However, this top is cut so strangely.  I have a couple of loose drapey tees that I love, but this one is the weirdest shape. You can see that the back polka dot piece is cut larger than the front stripe just hung really awkwardly.  I don't need any extra awkwardness in my life. ;)

41Hawthorne Ivy Abstract Triangle Print Tab-Sleeve Blouse (kept!)
When I opened the package, I crossed my fingers that this top would fit because it was my favorite at first glance.  I asked for a top with a bold black & white geometric print, and I like this print a lot.  It fits perfectly and the cut is really slimming and flattering.  I can't wait to wear it accented with a bright pop of color.

Chris & Carol Jill Jersey Maxi Skirt (returned)
I requested a geometric or lattice patterned maxi, but the stylist said they didn't have any in stock so she sent this solid colored one instead.  I was not impressed.  The knit fabric is very thin.  I frequently sew my own maxi skirts and the jersey knit I get from JoAnn is better quality.  Good knits with trendy patterns can be hard to find, so that's why I requested a maxi in a print.  I think I'll just stick to sewing my own (for a fraction of the cost) from now on.

Kut from the Kloth Jenna Bermuda Short (returned...sniffle.)
I have super long legs, so finding jeans and shorts that are long enough in the inseam AND rise is a practically impossible task.  I asked my stylist for a pair of colored bermuda shorts, not expecting her to be able to find any that would fit.  Imagine my surprise when these fit really well!  I was tempted to keep them...but I just don't love the color.  The red is really orange-y and doesn't look amazing with the skin tone of my legs.  And it also doesn't really jive with the other pieces in my wardrobe.  I am bummed to send them back.  (Google revealed to me that these shorts also come in teal, which would have been perfect.  Drat!)

Anyway, thanks for tolerating my Stitch Fix excitement.
