As soon as I saw the Stitch Fix box waiting for me on my doorstep, my excitement skyrocketed immediately. Unfortunately, that excitement quickly turned into disappointment as I rifled through the box of pretty clothes. The only item that fit me and was within my price range was a super cute CHICK & LEAF CHARM NECKLACE ($28). To avoid losing $20, I may have to buy the necklace.
I like the KARMI PETER PAN COLLAR DOT PRINT TANK ($58) because I can pair that with jeans and an open black sweater. Unfortunately, the tank was way too small for me. Which by the way, are the stylists rifling through the juniors department for me because none of the selections were a good fit for me. I may be super short, but I’m not a super tiny girl either.
I love love love love love the LOLITA LINEN COLORBLOCK DRESS ($98), but the dress was too small, too short, and too heavy to wear in the spring/summer. As much as I really wanted the dress to work out, I couldn’t ignore the $98 price tag. With the exception of my wedding dress and a few bridesmaid dresses, I rarely spend $100 on one clothing item.
At first, I liked the FAXON FLORAL WAIST TIE DRESS ($58) but after trying it on and looking at it some more, I decided I really didn’t like the dress. Once again, it was too small and too short, and I didn’t like the style or print. When I returned my first box, I specifically asked for spring/summer business casual tops for work, and I feel these selections didn’t meet my request.
The one item that fit was the EVELYN STRIPE KNIT SHORTSLEEVE SHIRT ($78), but the shirt almost had a sweater look and feel to it. Not to mention, the fabric was very thin, and I’m guessing I would’ve needed to wear a cami underneath. The shirt is being sent back because I don’t think it’s business casual enough to wear to work. I know I can pair the shirt with jeans for a nice casual look.
Anyway, disappointment is the perfect one-word answer on how I feel about my second Stitch Fix box. I emailed them, requesting a second box with my specific selections, but I haven’t heard a reply. Depending on the response, I may hold off on scheduling my third box. I completely understand the risk of having someone else pick out clothes for me, and me not liking the style, print, etc. But what kind of irks me is they ignored my specific request for business casual tops for work. I have plenty of cute little dresses and skirts to wear, but what I lack is stylish business casual tops. So, I hope the Stitch Fix team can turn my disappointment into excitement again with another fix. Fingers crossed.
