Last Friday, April Fools Day, I received another Stitch Fix box. While many people use Stitch Fix because they don't like to shop themselves, I do it to find a few unique pieces that I struggle to find in stores. As a result, I set up my shipments to arrive every three months. My last shipment was in January 2016, so I was excited to receive some warmer weather pieces this time. I included a note for my stylist, asking for a few things. I wanted some distressed jeans, a green utility vest, and some tops with delicate detailing and floral prints. And while I only kept one top, I feel my stylist definitely listened to my requests.
Mori Henley Top (Size Large) - $48
This was the only top I ended up liking and keeping in my latest Stitch Fix package. I immediately loved it because of the colors and print... I'm a huge fan of teal! I also liked that it was sleeveless. When going through my closet recently, I noticed that I don't have a lot of sleeveless shirts that I still liked. While I might want to wear a camisole under it for the armholes, that's not a big deal to me. I also am a fan of the longer back for covering the bum :)
Minerva Crochet Trim Top (Size Large) - $48
This second shirt wasn't necessarily bad. I liked the back detail, but the v-neck in the front seemed a little odd. It was like in between a scoop and a v-neck and I don't think it really flattered me. While I didn't mind the print, I wasn't a fan of the colors on me.
Kendal Button Back Top (Size Large) - $58
The final shirt I got was this white eyelet blouse. While I asked for more feminine tops, this isn't exactly what I meant. It's a little too traditional for my taste. And it was too short for my long torso and rather see-through. This definitely went back.
Kondar Cargo Vest (Size Large) - $68
I specifically asked for a utility vest, so I was happy to see this in my shipment. Unfortunately, it was very similar to the utility jacket that I received and returned a few shipments ago. It's a little too thick for my taste, and I have no clue what to do with the belt. I'm not a fan of it closed and belted, but it looks silly with the strings just hanging. I also wasn't sure if I liked the detailing on the shoulders.
I had also found a utility vest at Gap and I like it more. I prefer the darker color, the fabric is softer and lighter, and it didn't have a belt that I didn't know what to do with. So I sent back the Stitch Fix vest and kept the one from Gap.
utility vest (khaki color)
I asked for longer shorts and some distressed jeans. Didn't necessarily want the two combined, but they said that they did not have any distressed jeans in stock. These shorts were a little snug for my liking and just a little too short for my taste. I'm not a fan of my legs and prefer to wear a longer short... especially since I'll be on the floor and crouching down with Noah. Thankfully, I found an alternative that I preferred from Loft. It also helped that the Loft shorts were cheaper... I got them on sale for $38.
