Once again, it's been months and months since I last did a Stitch Fix post (July). That certainly doesn't mean I haven't been receiving my SF boxes...just that I can't seem to get my act together enough to actually take photos of the clothing in that ridiculously quick 3-day window. Seriously, it's nearly impossible to find the time (during daylight hours) to get yourself presentable, style and model the clothes and take the photos, while two wild hooligans run around and destroy the house the second you turn your back. How do people do it?
Anyway, since I missed my opportunity to get photos while I had all the items, I decided to do just another post with just the items I've kept from my last few fixes. I've done this once before (here), which worked out well. This time I kept 6 items from my last 3 fixes. Since I started requesting the same stylist over and over again, I'm averaging keeping 2-3 pieces from each fix, which I think is pretty good. And the items I end up not keeping are usually because I have something really similar already. Jessica V has been doing an awesome job paying attention to what I request (lately I've been asking for casual tops, v-necks, simple styles), what I pin and what I share here on the blog. Her notes are always great and I feel like she's really getting my style down.
So, each of the items below are keepers from my last three fixes. I've styled them all very simply, to really showcase the item and basically that's just the way I like to wear them day-to-day. I'm wearing my favorite jeans (Icon Skinny Joe's Jeans) with every top, because I love these jeans so much. Ok, let's get to it, shall we?
Hands-down, this is my absolute favorite item I've ever received from Stitch Fix. This sweater is SO me. I love the v-neckline, the soft light fabric, the neutral colors, the polka dots. It's absolute perfection. I love bright colors, but I have a serious soft spot for anything white/cream. Those colors just work with my skin tone and I can't get enough. I love that this can be dressed down with jeans or up with white or tan slacks for work. It's really light and really soft. I've already worn it a dozen times in the two months I've had it (to the pumpkin patch), usually with my favorite neutral flat. And can't wait to pair it with a thick cream scarf and leather boots for fall/winter. And how awesome is this going to look with that tan fur-lined coat I got in my January Stitch Fix box? I love everything about this sweater!
I was pretty confident when I pulled this one out of the box that I was going to hate it. I'm not a big fan of blue (it's just not my color), plus, I really prefer v-necks to crew necks, but there's something about this top that I just fell in love with. I love the stripes and the contrasting top and sleeves. It's super light, soft and comfortable. It doesn't wrinkle, which makes it great for traveling. It goes perfectly with my aqua Converse Chuck Taylor Shoreline sneakers (a perfect color match!). It looks great with every pair of jeans I own and is stylish enough for casual day at work, but comfy enough for playdates and lounging around the house. This one is a big winner.
This is probably the most "un-me" purchase I've ever made from Stitch Fix. While I love purple and floral, this top is much busier and brighter than I usually go for. However, it's so incredibly thick and soft and well-made, which I love. I got it over the summer and it was perfect to wear with white skinnies or crisp white shorts. The back lace detail is really unexpected and pretty, taking it a step beyond super casual. And looking at the photos, I feel like it's so much more flattering and pretty in person than it is in pictures. The colors are fun and it surprisingly goes with nearly everything! Great spring, summer and into fall piece.
This was another one that I was expecting to hate, but pleasantly surprised me when I put it on. Honestly, that's a huge part of what I love about Stitch Fix! This is a top that I probably never would have tried on in a store or given a second look at, but as soon as I tried it on, I loved it! Obviously, I love a good v-neck and this bright red print is so much fun! It's perfect to pair with jeans and booties and is nice enough to be worn on a day date, but also casual and comfortable enough to wear while running errands. I've also thrown this on with a pair of black slacks and worn it to work. The front has some pleating down the middle, which is barely noticeable.
How pretty is this little pink top? I love it so much. Pink has never been a color I gravitate towards, but I think this color is so complimentary. While the coloring and fabric on the front of the top have that faded/blended casual athlesiure-wear look, the lace detail on the back of the top makes it really different and takes it up a notch. It's comfortable enough to feel like casual wear with a pair of tennis shoes (how I styled it), but it's also easy to dress up with skinny jeans and heels. This top's really fun and I'm surprised how many times I've reached for it over the last couple months. I've gotten a lot of wear out of it.
Last but not least, (surprise!) another simple v-neck knit top that can be dressed up or down! Yeah, so perhaps I'm more predictable than I realize. Anyway, this top is a beautiful thick knit top in a gorgeous green color. The photos don't do the color justice - for some reason I just couldn't get the color to photograph as pretty as it is in person. It looks a bit blue/mint in the photos, but it's a much richer green color in person. I love the v-neck the front, and while the back v isn't my favorite, it doesn't really bother me as much as I thought it might when I first looked at it. I like the half-sleeves on this and the length is flattering. And as I said, it's so versatile - this is a top I've worn hiking, to the grocery store, to work and to a parent/teacher conference.
What do you think of my keepers?
