I received my second Stitch Fix on Saturday, and I couldn't wait to get home from the Bay and tear right into it! Okay, so, so many great things. My stylist nails it. She nails it SO well, that one of the pieces I already had! Hahahahaha! And, even though I loved everything, I'm remembering my vow: To only buy those pieces that truly transform my life, I don't already have and could be versatile in a few different looks. Two pieces met that criteria this time around. Read on...
Keeping this. I love Kut from the Kloth. It's a raglan top that is just so perfect for spring and I love the grey and orange. I can wear this with shorts, white denim and black denim or blue denim. I already know I'm bringing this with me to spring training in a few weeks. Sandals, flip flops or jacks will compliment this look easily. Seems like it'd also be a cute top to wear to Xander's t-ball games and practices. $58
LOVED this. I don't have anything like this navy, crepe-y, easy, peazy blazer. With no hardware it's fun and flirty, but will give a lot of different looks an immediate polish. White denim, pencil skirts, denim girlfriend crops, just so many options with this one. Needless to say, I kept it. This is also by Skies Are Blue, and I purchased a cardigan last Fix by Skies Are Blue. $64
I liked these, but didn't keep them. Ultimately, I just couldn't get past the blue tuxedo stripe down the legs. I think it would be just too hard for my brain to diversify. Anything that I paired with the white denim, would have to work back against the navy striping and for $168 I just didn't think I could justify the purchase. I did love the fit though and probably would've considered if they didn't have the striping, but even at $168 I don't think I would have shelled out the coin. It did dawn on me I could wear the cute navy blazer with these, but I had a difficult time making any other looks with pieces I already owned.
So, this is the piece I already had, not this exact piece but something extremely similar. This piece is also Kut from the Kloth. Back in September, though, I purchased an investment piece, a Laundry by Shelli Segal black pencil skirt with vegan leather inset. Clearly, my stylist already understands me! Didn't keep this solely due to the fact I more or less already had it. $68
Lastly, I wasn't super feeling this scarf. I love lightweight infinity scarves, but I really wasn't loving the print and color scheme on this one, so I returned it. $28
So after all is said and done I kept two pieces this month totaling $122, subtract the $20 styling fee and I spent $102. The top and blazer will augment what I've already got and create some new looks for me instantly.
And PS - I'm getting better with the photos. Work in progress!
