I skipped Stitch Fix for April just to save some money but…I find myself buying clothes in April. Darn it!
I have been setting my profile to “the cheaper the better” and also I noticed from my previous fixes I’ve been getting a lot of black or really dark clothes. I requested to not have any black clothes on my upcoming fixes. Plus I requested maybe an accessory once in a while.
The thing I don’t like about our new place is that the mail carrier does not leave our packages at the door when we are not present. Depending on the mail carrier, some of them leave the packages with our manager and the others just carry it back to the post office where we have to pick it up. I feel I have to run around to get our packages. We never had this problem at our old neighborhood. At our old neighborhood, if we were not present, the mail carrier would leave it at the door. *sigh*
Anyways, I finally got my fix! Here are my fixes for May:
1. Zad – Veronica Layered Metal Cuff (Not pictured)
Sorry, I don’t have a picture but I really did not like it. I’m not sure exactly why I did not like it. Maybe because the yellow gold bracelet clashed with my white gold engagement ring. I think I’ll stick with renting statement jewelry through Rent the Runway. Besides, I don’t really wear jewelry everyday other than my ring and my Skagen watch.
2. 41 Hawthorn - Sloane Colorblock A-Line Ponte Shift Dress
Thank you Mr. Fish for taking the photos.
About this dress…I guess in the photos it looks pretty nice, but I did not like how I felt in the dress. I am not sure if I would wear this dress to work unless I have a blazer or cardigan but lately it’s been too hot to wear either. I have this long red coat I think would go great with this dress but it would be too hot to wear for the spring/summer.
The dress alone, I would wear for happy hour (which is a rare), but I think I’ll stick with renting dresses for special occasions such as weddings and fancy dinners.
FYI, this dress is navy not black.
Decision: Returned. For spring/summer workwear, I would prefer skirts and wrap dresses.
3-4. Kensie Jeans – Sophia Tall Length Skinny Jean
41Hawthorn – Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse
I actually liked the blouse. It felt boho but the stud detail gave it some edge. Honestly, when it comes to clothes shopping, if I can think of 3 occasions I can take my pieces I’ll buy it. For this blouse I can wear it for casual Friday, work (would pair lovely with my gray pencil skirt), and a casual dinner with friends.
Jeans – I have bought every jeans and slacks from Stitch Fix. My fiance said compared the jeans from my previous fixes these have the best fit. I was surprised how comfortable they were.
Decision: KEPT! :-) I kept both of them!
5. Pomelo – Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee
This shirt feels REALLY soft! I feel like I can do yoga because it’s airy and it’s light. Great basic shirt.
Overall, my Stitch Fix was ok. I’m glad there were no black or dark gray pieces of clothing. But when I first opened the box, at first glance a lot of the clothes looked like they were for Fall and I was kind of turned off.
I have to admit none of the pieces from current Fix or even pieces from my previous Fixes like they’re inspired from Pinterest Board. I feel maybe look at the Pinterest board once in a while, especially when the seasons change.
