Stitch Fix #5

Time to go in-home shopping again! I set my fifth Stitch Fix to arrive just a couple days after my birthday as a little gift to myself. That probably wasn't the most responsible thing for me to do but I did it anyway.

Want to see what I got? Of course, you do. Otherwise you wouldn't be here!  As I was editing these pictures, I realized I definitely should have slapped on a bit of lipstick. Hindsight.

Pomelo - Corinna Striped Dolman Top, $48

The fabric on this was soft and comfortable and I liked the color but it is a bit muted heading into the cheery colors of spring I typically gravitate towards. The fit was fine but this is the third dolman sleeve top they've sent me in a row. I kept the first but returned the second. How many dolmans does a girl need? I liked it but I didn't $48 like it.

Verdict: Return

Daniel Rainn - Axis Geo Print Crochet Detail Blouse, $68

I love the graphic print on this one and I don't really have many (if any) black and white pieces so it would fill a void in my wardrobe. The length in the back is really nice. You can't really see it but the detailing at the neck with a metal clasp adds a fun, unexpected feature. I think it'll be good at the office under a cardigan and for wearing out and about with bright crops or shorts.

Verdict: Keep

Leota - Tyra Geo Print Faux Wrap Dress, $158

I love everything about this dress. The color is vibrant. The print is graphic. The fit was flattering. John went nuts for it. I love everything except the price. ONE HUNDRED FIFTY EIGHT DOLLARS!!! I was actually really upset that it cost so much considering my Style Profile has a $50-$100 price range and this far surpassed that. I could not even begin to justify the cost on this one. But, it does make me want to see out this vintage style in a more responsible price point. 

Verdict: Return

Sold Design Lab - Korye Distressed Skinny Jean, $128

OK. White jeans. Distressed white jeans. You can't see it but these $128 dollar jeans come pre-distressed with holes in the knees. There are very few people who can pull off white jeans. I am not one of them. I looked like a whale which is why you are seeing a picture of the jeans and not me in the jeans.

Verdict: RETURN

Zad - Zoe Open Shape Metal Earrings, $32

These earrings are cute and I like how the shape echoed that of the black and white sleeveless blouse. They are lightweight and about 1 1/2" in length. Ultimately, I didn't need another pair of larger gold earrings.

Verdict: Return

....Just one keeper this month which I suppose is okay. I don't really need to spend the money. But, I was supremely disappointed that two of the pieces were well beyond my approved price range. I did schedule another fix for May but I was clear on my form to please stick to the budget.

Do you want to try it out for yourself? For a $20 styling fee, you can receive your first fix of 5 items. If you decide to keep anything, the $20 is subtracted from the purchase price. If you buy all 5 pieces, you get a 25% discount. Pretty neat, right?

Happy Shopping!


  1. So strange, but they just shipped me several of these items and they seem to have adjusted the prices down. They billed the dress at $98, which is way less crazy than $158!

    1. Thanks for letting me know, Vicki! That is really weird. Think I'll be emailing Stitch Fix about that one.....


I want to hear what you have to say. Really!
