Happy Friday! It’s my first Friday back in the Bay Area. I’m SO excited. Before we all head into the holiday weekend, I wanted to wish all my blog friends a happy Stitch Fix day!
In case you aren’t familiar with Stitch Fix, it is a program where you get an online stylist who sends you 5 items whenever you prefer (I get items every eight weeks or so). The items your stylist sends are based off of your style profile, which includes everything from fit to style to budget. You’ve got three days to try everything on in the comfort of your home, with your current wardrobe all around you. Then, you choose what to keep and send back what you don’t like (totally free – shipping is included).
This time, I asked for DRESSES, lots of party dresses. I wanted to get some new dresses I could wear to the Google holiday party that could also be worn with leggings and boots to work. My regular stylist was not able to style my fix this time.
For my December 2016 stitch fix, I received:
Wisp Coleen Ponte Dress
I love the ponte fabric. It’s structured enough to hide the bra bulge but super comfy. I also wanted a dress that would show off my arms 😉 This one had some fun detailing on the sides, too.
I loved the detailing and colors but it was a little big in the waist. I ultimately returned it because I thought the neckline wasn’t the most flattering.
41Hawthorn Kalinah Dress
I loved this dress on the hanger but it just didn’t fit quite right. It was a bit too tight around my butt, which left too much extra fabric around my stomach.
The cut outs on the sleeves and the pockets were super cute details.
Laundry by Shelli Segal Zoie Jersey Dress
I had the opposite reaction to this dress than I did to the 41Hawthorn dress. In the box, I didn’t think much of it. I thought it was way too boxy but once it was on, I was intrigued.
This dress is more trendy than I would normally wear but I think I like it! I think I could wear it with leggings and boots, too, so that’s an added benefit.
Adrianna Papell Alyce Dress
This dress is absolutely stunning! The back was so classy.
But I think it was cut on a bias or something, because it has extra fabric around the waist.
So, unfortunately, the verdict is to RETURN 🙁
Gilli Viola Jersey Dress
Nope. Just nope. I liked the fabric and pattern but when I put it on, I felt about 40 years older than I am.
Unfortunately, the cinching on the waist seemed to have the opposite effect, calling too much attention (and fabric) to my waist.
