I realize it’s going to seem like I JUST shared a Stitch Fix review… and that’s sort of because I did. I didn’t actually receive these as close together as I have blogged them… I just am off in blogging them more spaced out… if that makes any sense.
In any event, this fix was ah-maze-ing. Seriously! Kimberly J., my stylist, knocked it out of the park. She just KNOWS my style and what I like! Even after over two years of receiving Stitch Fix fixes, I STILL get excited about what she’s going to pick out for me and I love rushing to the front door to grab my fix box when it arrives!
The surprise of each fix is so much fun. Plus, it’s basically like you get to play dress up right from the comfort of your own home. AMIRIGHT? Right.
Well, keep reading to see what I got and what I kept! 🙂
*Made in the USA!
This top. Oh. My. Goodness. This top. When I pulled it out of the box I was like, “YAAAASSSSS!!!!” and even my husband said, “If I could find a shirt that was your essence, that would be it.” You guys, this shirt is EVERYTHING.
The print? Gorgeous. The flowy, non-clingy fit? The best. The material? Soft as all get out. The fact that it’s made right here in the good ol’ US of A? WOOHOO!!
The moment I put it on, it was love. Love. LOOOOOVE.
For real. I can’t even begin to describe how much I love this top.
Did I mention I love this top?
Naturally, I kept it.
Ohhhhh I was very conflicted on this top. Let me tell you, this top has it’s pros and it’s cons.
First pro: The print is EXACTLY my style. The boho-inspired bold colors and the print are right up my alley. I looooooved it.
Second pro: This is actually a tab-sleeved shirt (I realized after the fact that I should have photographed it both ways so you could have seen that) …so, you’ve got a long-sleeved top and a 3/4 length with the tab sleeves up all in one.
Third pro: it’s VERY lightweight, which I love. The material isn’t see through, but it is light and airy.
First con: the fit… It’s very hard to tell via the pictures, but the bottom part of the blouse isn’t very flowy and actually is quite tight around my hips. I was actually afraid that if I sat wrong it would rip. It’s very strange. So while I felt like it fit well up top, it did not fit well through the waist and hips.
Second con: I haven’t really been able to learn anything about the brand online and since I’m really, really trying wherever I can to do my due diligence to learn about brands, I wasn’t so sure about this one.
Third con: It’s one of those tops that, while I love the print, I couldn’t picture myself wearing it AT LEAST 30 times. That’s something I’m trying to do more now is ask, “Will I get at least 30 wears out of this piece?” If the answer is no, I don’t buy it.
So, sadly, I returned it.
*Made in the USA!
Ohhhhhh this dress. Let me tell you about THIS DRESS.
It. Is. Amazing.
Soft? YES. The print? I mean, it has QUATREFOILS ON IT. Quatrefoils are life. I love the hi-lo cut. The flowy / slinky fit? So flattering! And definitely this is a dress that can be dressed up or dressed down. Oh, and 41Hawthorn is a Stitch Fix exclusive brand that is Made in the USA! WOOHOO!
But I returned it.
WHY? Whyyyy did I return it? Gosh, I went back and forth so much on this one. I really, really loved the dress. BUT… it’s not one that I can easily nurse in. 🙁 And, honestly, I couldn’t see myself wearing it that much if I can’t easily nurse in it right now.
I realize this is silly… but, it was reason enough for me to not justify the expense.
BUT, but, but… the dress is amazing and I’ll likely request it again down the road. Who knows?
So, I love Kut from the Kloth as a brand and I love the distressed look of jeans… but these? These were a big ol’ no. They fit me just… well, awfully. Hugged my thighs, emphasized my love handles and post-c-section pooch (WAHHH) and yeah, just no good for me right now.
I totally see why my stylist sent them to me because, on paper, they fit my style… in practice though? Not so much.
*Ethically made in Uganda
Out of the box immediate YES. I love 31 Bits SO much! I have received a couple of their pieces in fixes before (and I’ve purchased 31 Bits stuff on my own, too!) and I love the heart, soul, and mission behind the company.
The price point was right on for this one and the bracelet is gorgeous! It goes with so many things I already own and I know I’ll get a ton of wear out of it! It also is unlike any other bracelet I have in my jewelry box. 🙂
It was a DEFINITE keep!
