Last month's Stitch Fix was brought to you by the color navy, so for this Fix I begged for funkier, edgier, more colorful stuff.
They... Kind of sort of maybe did that. Maybe.
My Fix definitely was ready for Spring. First up, a pair of grey skinny jeans and a grey quilted vest (okay, so, maybe out of the gate they are failing on the "brighter" category.)
Before I even put on the vest Mike was shaking his head "no." This is the second vest they've sent me and the second I'll be sending them back. I don't know what's going on with vests but I feel like... like a futuristic cop from an 80s action movie? Also, I don't have any shirts to wear under this thing. I'm wearing a workout shirt. Seriously, I haven't had a plain black tee shirt or long sleeved shirt since I became friends with Cailin (mission accomplished, honey! You done good.)
The pants, on the otherhand, I kind of adored. I've given in to the fact that I'm a skinny jeans wearing hipster by now, so I thought "oo, these are a lot like the green pants they sent me!"
...And then I looked at the price tag.
Now, I'm okay with expensive clothing, but these fuckers were $148. Seriously.
THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE REAL POCKETS. THOSE ARE FAKE. THEY ARE JUST STITCHED ON.
WHERE THE FUCK AM I GOING TO PUT MY PHONE.
For $88? Yeah, I'd have kept them - and that's the price point they usually send me. Fuck, for $108 I probably would. But plain grey skinny jeans sans real pockets? No. Gonna have to give me something more awesome than that.
Next up: an airy white sweater.
You might be asking "Elizabeth, what the fuck are you doing right there?" and that's a very astute question.
What am I doing? My best "help my arms are fucking giant and hulking out of this sweater" routine. You can't really tell in the photos, but I can't actually pull the entire sleeve up my forearm beause my forearm is too large for this sweater. I work out an' all, but what the fuck, guys? The rest of the sweater is loose, so it's not too small - a Large would look stupid - but if I flex my biceps the seams literally strain against my arms.
It's a shame, too, because the sweater's pretty badass. Unfortunately, me and my giant arms had to say goodbye to it.
Ah, that chiffon-y camisole bullshit that Stitch Fix loves to send me and I'm super getting tired of. Mike hated this pattern although I liked the cut, but mostly, I am really tired of these shirts. I have like five or six of them from Stitch Fix now and it's getting to be summer. If I get a tiny bit sweaty it's going to show and that's really, really gross. I don't like this fabric. I have made a pact and I'm sticking to it: no more of these shirts, Stitch Fix. I'm warning you!
And now... I have saved the best for last.
Holy shit I love this dress. It comes without the belt but I just so happen to have a pink belt that perfectly matches it. I think I can pull it off with black, too, and now I'm in the market for a white one. Seriously, this is three months in a row they have sent me dresses that have made me so happy. I have never worn this many dresses in my life and I want more of them. I want all the Stitch Fix dresses.
Okay, so, weigh in. What should I keep? What looks good and I thought looked bad and vice versa? Am I stupid for hating on $148 pants - are they that awesome I should keep them?
Let me know!
