Stitch Fix #5: Pictures taken by Mom :)

Stitch Fix #5 is here!
I was super excited about this Fix, since it happened to get delivered on the same day my mother was visiting.  I was able to rope her in to help take my photos and also get her feedback on some of the pieces, which is great since I'm usually deciding on my own.  Here we go!

 Renee C Huebert Space Dye Open Cardigan: $58
This looks pretty good in the photo, but honestly, I think at last count I had something insane like TWENTY-SIX cardigans. I certainly do not need another one, especially not one as unremarkable as this. The only thing that might have swayed me was if it had been nice deep jewel tone.  As it was, it was gray and blah and...nope.  Verdict? Sent back!
Gilli Kamile Jersey Ruched Detail Dress, $64 
I have a confession to make.  I was a "goth girl" for many years, and I'm still struggling a bit to add color into my wardrobe...so at first, I was a little disappointed that Stitch Fix sent a black dress.  But, once I thought about it, I realized that my wardrobe was actually missing a classic little black dress that would work for both casual and dressier occasions.

You can't quite see it clearly here, but this has some pretty ruching around the waist.  Every girl needs a good little black dress, and this one is pretty versatile, really defines my waist, and doesn't show too much cleavage.  Win! Actually, Gilli is the same brand who made the dress I kept last month...I think I like this brand!  Verdict? Kept!

HAHAHAHA. Nice try, Stitch Fix.
41Hawthorne Moni Horseshoe Print Stud Detail Top - $58
Whoever labeled this shirt a size large has certainly not taken boobs into account.  I couldn't pull the shirt down any further than this, and it forced my shoulders into that permanent shrug you see.  Not to mention...I'm not into the busy, patterned fabric at all. You can't really see it, but it's tiny horseshoes. Not at all my style! My stylist wrote a note saying "...here's that shirt you liked!" but this is not even close to what I requested...it's by the same brand, but...yeah, no.  That's where similarities end. Verdict? Sent back!

Market and Spruce Corinna Striped Dolman Top: $48
 YAYYYY.  I had been bugging my stylists for this top for a while, but it was always sold out.  I read in some other Fixes that it was really comfy and oversized, great for just throwing on for a lazy weekend.  Well, I wore it today, and I have to agree! I can see this getting a lot of mileage on those days when I just need to throw something on and go, or just hang around the house doing some writing.  Verdict? Kept!
Kut From The Kloth Jonathan Corduroy Skinny Pant - $68
These red pants were way too similar to the maroon pants they sent me a few Fixes ago.  I think my mom wanted me to keep them, but I knew I wouldn't wear them. The tag said corduroy, but they were really more like velour, and for some reason, touching velour fabric makes me nauseated.  (Weird, right? I know!) Verdict? Sent back!

All in all, I'm pretty happy with this fix.  The cardigan and the shirt were no-nos (I specifically asked for NO cardigans in my second to last fix, but I'm not sure that the notes carry over!) but pants, top, and dress made it clear that they were working from my Pinterest style boards.

As always, if you want to try out Stitch Fix for yourself, please use my referral link!
