...well, charm seems a bit too optimistic, but my third StitchFix box is definitely better than the first two - from a style perspective, anyway. As far as sizing goes, everything except one dress was a bit big (and a couple things were WAY too big). That's kind of a disappointment, because I would possibly have kept everything if it had fit. Pictures below. And as always, commentary is welcome (yes, Mom, even you).
Anila Floral Print Flutter Sleeve Blouse
I really liked this blouse when I first pulled it out of the box. Then I tried it on. While I LOVE the pattern and the general concept, it just felt a little too baggy. I'm afraid it looks frumpy. Maybe it would look better with a black belt around the waist to give it more definition? Or is it a lost cause?
Rowson Colorblock Striped Sweater
As far as the style goes, they NAILED it. I have a Carolina blue and navy and white striped sweater JUST like this from Lilly Pulitzer. The difference is, my Lilly sweater FITS. If a sweater can fit your 6'0", 200-pound fiance, that's pretty sad. I know it's meant to be layered, but this is even with my white button-down beneath it. Still a fail. This one's going back.
Audrey Pearl Neckline Striped Dress
This one is relatively cute, but like the blouse it's just a wee bit too big, especially in the waist and bust. The rhinestones interspersed between the pearls on the collar look kind of cheap. And it's an awkward style of dress. It's really too fancy (or cocktail dress-looking) to wear to work, but where else would I wear it? We don't go out often enough to make this one worthwhile. Cute style, but a pass.
Andrea Floral Brocade Knit Dress
This was my favorite item straight out of the box, and after trying them on it's still my favorite. For starters, it's the only one that fits in the waist and the bust (seriously, they have my bra size...how is it this hard to get things to fit my top half?!). I could put a cardigan with it and wear it to work, or I could wear it on its own. I think this is the one I'm keeping.
Giselli Chevron Print Sleeveless Dress
This dress is super cute and work appropriate, but I knew it the minute I pulled it out of the box - it's way too big. If it fit, it would be a keeper, along with the gray and white flowered dress, but there's just no way. You could put an entire extra set of boobs in the top, 'cause mine take up about half the room allotted to them. A shame, because this could have been a super-cute versatile dress.
So that's my third StitchFix, and possibly my final for a while (unless any of you sign up using my link and give me credit). It's been fun, but they haven't nailed my style and size the way they've advertised. So feedback welcome.
And here's a picture of my sweet Luna. She was such a good girl. When B was taking pictures of me, she would just sit and look at him expectantly, so of course he had to take her picture, too. Gah, I love my sweet furry bug.
