So after my Dia box did not work out I decided to give Stitch Fix a try since I am within the size range that they offer albeit on the larger side. I went into great detail about my body issues as well as the need for pieces that would be easy to wear given that I am working mom. I wanted to add to my current wardrobe with items that I could wear on a date night or a casual weekend out.
So when I opened the box I was happy to see the 5 different items that I could easily see myself wearing.
Selfridge Cowl Neck Top – Grey
Dolman Jersey Top – Dark Purple
Faux Suede Shoulder Knit Top – Purple
I forgot to take a picture with the burnt orange cardigan.
The jeans I wore with all the looks
Ok so I will now rate all the items based on how they looked on me as well as the cost.
The cowl neck top I LOVED!!! It was such a nice neckline and really flattering. The only problem was that it was see through. My hubby pointed that out and I even tried it on with a camisole under and it was just not working. I was really bummed that it just wasn’t the shirt for me. It was $48 which was reasonable for this shirt but it had to go back.
The cardigan was also really pretty and I liked how it fit. I decided to not keep this since I have tons of cardigans and for $48 I could get a similar style cardigan for 1/2 the price. It went back.
The Faux Suede shirt I did not like at all. It was way too long and it was super loose and made me look boxy. That went back as well.
Finally the jeans. I really did like the jeans and the fit was really good. They are super soft too. I have never bought jeans that were $78 because I buy my jeans from Old Navy for $20. I was really hesitant to buy them but I decided to keep them. I had a $20 styling fee credit that I could put towards the purchase and would lose it if I didn’t buy anything.
So overall this was better than the Dia box but again I am not 100% sold on this. I may try it again in a couple of months to see if maybe I can get a better box or decide that these style boxes are not for me. I have come to realize that the price point for all these services tend to be on the higher end of my budget so we shall see if the next box proves worth it.
