In exactly 6 days, I will be in Dublin, Ireland. To say that I’m “excited” doesn’t quite do it justice. Matt and I have been planning our Europe trip for so long, and I cannot believe it is almost here. We are spending 14 days in Europe and visiting Dublin, London, Liverpool and Paris. I studied abroad in Dublin so it has a very special place in my heart.
I decided that I wanted to get clothes for the trip abroad and asked for last fix (which I was not happy with,) and this Fix to be focused on the trip. This time around I basically wrote a book about what I wanted and it seems like they listened. I got Alison this time and she really paid attention to what I wanted “Comfortable, Casual Tops that can be paired well with leggings/skinny jeans, and can be dressed up or down. Sticking to whites, blacks, grays, and tan colors” I also asked for a 3/4 length sleeve black dress…but what they sent wasn’t quite my favorite.
Let’s Kickoff Stitch Fix 8:
I love this top. I’m pretty sure anything with buttons that they send me I end up keeping. Black is obviously flattering and I tried this on with leggings as well, and it works. Like that I could wear this top for a day of travel and just stay in it to go out that night. I like the material, if hand-washed in a sink it will dry quickly and doesn’t wrinkle too badly.
VERDICT: Kept this!
When I say that this sweater is the most comfortable thing I have ever put on my body…I mean it. It is so incredibly soft and I paired it in the above photos with both leggings and my Kensie skinny jeans and I think it works with both. It’s not the most “form flattering” but it’s a comfy, baggier sweater that is gorgeous in person. It has hints of gold on it. The only thing holding me back is price… It’s really expensive. Obviously I love my Kensie jeans, and I think I would get a ton of use out of this…being a normally sweaty person, it’s nice to have light sweaters that breathe. I have never spent this much on a sweater and don’t know if that’s how much it costs to have the softest sweater ever on your skin…
Verdict: Decided to keep it!
Okay, so I know I have a giant butt, that has never been a surprise to me. It’s something I actually embrace, and now love. BUT this dress…Seriously look at it from the side…it’s too much. I wanted this dress to work out so badly, so I could have an easy dress to pair with leggings and boots, pair with flats if i want to be a little dressy…nope. This one is not doing it for me. It’s definitely going back. Stripes and I just don’t get along. I’m going to see if i can find an all black dress at TJ Maxx instead. I’m just not a fan, even if I really want to be.
Verdict: Peace Out Dress. Going back!
So here are my thoughts. The cut on this shirt is weird…it has REALLY high sides but with a tank top underneath I really kind of like it. The pocket on the front is super weird…but again…it intrigues me. I paired it with both leggings and jeans and it works with both. It’s SUPER comfy and would be a good shirt or sightseeing, but I also don’t want to look gross. I just cannot decide on this one either.
Verdict: Sent this back
Not quite sure why all of these photos are blurry… so this shirt. I requested this after seeing it on another person’s blog. I paired this shirt with both leggings and jeans and SHOCKER, I’m unsure. I like it, it’s super comfy material, and I think with my necklace it looks really great. Alone it’s really plain.
I’m just torn on this as well.
Verdict: Sent this back
