Stitch Fix Take Two

Yesterday I got home from work to see my second Stitch Fix box waiting for me on the front porch.  I felt like a kid on Christmas as I ran inside and tore into the box.  I couldn't wait to see what they had in store for me this month.

First off was this ABI colorblock maxi dress:

I love the dress, but I'm not sure about the cut.  I worry that it makes my hips look too big. It could be nursing friendly with the cross front and I really do love the color.  The $88 price tag has me hesitating, though.  I'll need to try it on for my husband and see what he thinks.

Next up were these black Arrie cargo shorts and a Dory braid detailed striped tank:

I love the shorts, but $68 is pretty damn expensive for a pair of shorts.  I do not like the top at all.  I don't like things that hit me right at the hips and then the horizontal stripes across the front are not flattering for me

Then there was this Astor ruffle front tank:

I don't hate the shirt although I'm not sure it's overly flattering on me.  I do like the color, though.

Finally there was this Calafia Delicate Chain & Stone necklace:

It's very pretty, but the fact that it has "delicate" as part of the description is a red flag.  I have a 10 month old who grabs EVERYTHING he can get his little pudgy hands on, so I'm thinking this would be ripped off my neck in about 2 seconds.  I don't want to spend $32 on something that will more than likely be destroyed in no time.

My gut says I'm going to keep the dress and the shorts, but I'm not 100% sure yet.  All in all I consider it a success and I look forward to seeing what next month brings me.

    1. Yeah, the necklace is pointless. I mean it's pretty, but it would be destroyed in a heartbeat.

  2. I think the dress looks great on you!

    1. Thanks! I like the dress - I'm just hesitating over the price.

    1. Me, too - I just need to decide if I want to pay that much for it. J will have to take me out for a nice dinner so I have a reason to buy it :)

  4. Hi there! My name is Heather and I was wondering if you would be able to answer a question I have about your blog! My email is Lifesabanquet1(at)gmail(dot)com :-)

  5. Love the dress! It looks like the stuff I buy from The Mint Julep Boutique. You should check them out. But this seems pretty fun, like a surprise every month!
