Well I don’t know if it’s just me, but Monday was a long, long day. I was ready for the weekend by 1:00 PM yesterday which is never a good sign. Fingers crossed this week starts moving a little faster than it’s current glacial pace.
I also have a shameless plug – I made my own FB page for my blog! I would love it if ya’ll would show me some love and throw a Like my way! I’ll post all updates about my blog on this page. Check it out and let me know your thoughts!
A while back I saw a StitchFix review on one of my favorite blogs and decided I should check out what this service is all about. The fix I am reviewing today is my third. To say the first two were unsuccessful would be an understatement. In my second fix I received a sweater I LOVED but could not pull the trigger on the $98 price tag. So I figured since I started blogging (who doesn’t love a new reason to post), I should give StitchFix another chance and schedule a fix.
StitchFix recommends to update your style profile after a fix you’re not particularly happy with. I went to town on my Pinterest board and attached the link to my order. I was hoping that it would offer some more guidance for my stylist to see what I am loving/looking for.
So let’s see what I got:
Each fix comes with a guide of items that are in your fix and suggestions of ways in which you could wear them. From this, a lot of you guessed I kept the Double Strap Tank which sadly I did not. I ended up keeping the Embroidered Racerback Tank.
1. Tabitha Maxi Dress (Small): $78
I was super excited when I saw this in my fix. I love long maxi dresses in the summer and they are so easy to wear to work and for a night out. The pattern and colors were exactly what I was looking for. However when I tried the dress on, the neckline was pretty high (which isn’t my absolute favorite), and the elastic waist band wasn’t exactly snug so it would slip down and promote an unflattering silhouette.
2. Double Strap Tank (Small): $48
Again, another piece I was super excited to try on. My go-to outfits in the summer are white skinny jeans and colorful flowy tops. Obviously this fits the bill perfectly. However what I didn’t notice from the preview sheet, and honestly until I had it on, was that there were buttons that went down the entire front of the shirt. While I loved the color, pattern, and the straps (my favorite part!), I knew each time I put this piece on, I’d immediately take it off and find something else. Pesky buttons.
3. Twist Back Knot Top (Small): $48
I really only have one thing to say about this. BORING. A plan back tank with a small keyhole in the back is not worth the pricetag. Nor is it what I was looking for. I stated in my pre-order I was looking for pieces that I wouldn’t necessarily pick up in a store… pieces that would push me out of my comfort zone. This is the most basic, conservative tank top of all time.
4. Embroidered Racerback Tank (Small): $38
This is what I’m talking about! I was super excited to try this piece on. I’m definitely a fan of all things nautical and preppy, but do not own anything with embroidered detailing along the neckline. I wasn’t sure how it would lay against my chest, but I loved it! I paired it with white jeans and it became my new go-to summer time outfit.
5. Mixed Geo Print Maxi Skirt (Small): $58
Another item I was super excited to try on. I loved the pattern, I loved that it was a skirt I could wear to work, but it was too big. For an elastic waist, the piece felt loose the second I tried it on. I would have kept it, but with the elastic cotton material, I knew the skirt would stretch out within two or three wears and be ruined. I was pretty bummed since this would be a piece I’d love to have. I just wish it was made with a bit more substantial/durable fabric.
So there you have it. Fix #3. I don’t have any scheduled for the near future, but hope to do one again in the fall. I’m thinking maybe I will schedule fixes seasonally. But other than that, they aren’t worth it for me at the moment.

*I did not get compensated for this post. The fix fee ($20) and purchase of the tank were with my own money.

What one item is desperately missing from your closet? I’m going to say leather. I really want leather pants but don’t know if I could pull it off.
