I got a Stitchfix box over the weekend. I would've taken these pictures outside, but the weather was awful. Maybe next time.
The big change with this box was that I actually requested jeans.
They seem to send me a pair randomly every couple of months and I figured I'd go with it and actually lay out the specifics of what I want. Currently, I only have one or two pairs of jeans I've worn in the last year (I know...).
My notes were:
"Long", as I've gotten a few too-short pairs and "Dark wash".
My stylist really came through this month with these:
I believe they're a Nordstrom brand and, at $58 with my styling credit, they were reasonably priced. Good jeans are hard to find and maybe I'd wear them more if I had a pair that I felt were truly flattering and weren't falling down all the time.
It says Straight, but they have a higher waist and a little flare. I had a black tank on here, underneath this sheerish pink shirt they also sent.
I actually liked the pink shirt, but I hate shirts that you have to wear "second shirt" underneath. It's like, what's the point???
But I didn't like the shoulder cut-outs. I might be conservative, but I feel like it's just too iffy when you teach elementary school. And I really do dislike layering shirt upon shirt for reasons other than warmth.
So this dress was a no from the start because it was Denver Bronco colors and I can't abide by that. It was also REALLY heavy and not summery at all. I found it kind of unflattering and uncomfortable, overall.
This yellow sleeveless blouse was supposed to be tucked in, but it was too big. So when I tucked it into this extremely high-waisted pencil skirt, it looked like I had an innertube around my waist and it was just weird. I liked the shirt, but you can see I had to layer a tank under it and when it's 90 degrees out in the summer and fall, that's not what I'm going for. Also, it was just too big.
The skirt looked like Mary Poppin's carpet bag suitcase, but it was VERY comfortable and soft. Like sweatpants, actually. But I couldn't get over the pattern.
I keep telling Stitchfix I want neutrals I can mix and match. Someday they might listen.
The only thing I kept was the jeans and I'm satisfied with that. There's few things worse than going shopping and trying things on the in the dressing room, so I'll try again next month. It's like an addiction.
