So, this is actually my third fix, which was scheduled as a do-over for the second fix (my happy birthday to me fix last month), which was underwhelming. That second fix has to go unreviewed right now because I lost the stylist card and took no photos of what I returned. However, let’s just say that after fix number 2, I was convinced that my stylist hated me (maybe she doesn’t like petite gals?), wasn’t reading my comments or profile, and certainly wasn’t looking at my Pinterest page, or maybe I just suck at communicating my wants/likes. I ended up keeping two of the items in that box just to make it worth my while (and it was my birthday, dammit), but I wasn’t happy. So, I sent a lengthy email to Stitch Fix expressing my displeasure and requesting assistance with making my Stitch Fix experience more like everyone else I know. Yes, I’ve become THAT kinda gal.
I’ll say this, I expressed my concern over my stylist not getting me, and they were super responsive to my displeasure. They responded within 24 hours, and offered to waive the styling fee in the next fix to try to make it right. Of course that meant having to try this again, but I guess it’s not that bad when the few e is waived. I have to give Stitch Fix props for customer service. They nail that!
So, I received my “make up” fix last week. It was MUCH better than the first two. Definitely more me.
#1 Margaret M Petite Emer High Waisted Cropped Trouser – Black – XS ($98)Finally something in a petite size! I have been looking for some stretchy cropped black pants to replace a pair of Vera Wang leggings I love that have pilled and faded and just look ragged (of courage I still wear them! DUH!!), and those were a nice replacement. Now, I feel these pants were a bit pricey, but they fit perfectly. I would have loved it if they had come in a brighter color, or even a print. But the fit sealed the deal. These are versatile – they will work both in the office and on my free time. I had to keep them. So I did.
#2 Olive & Oak Arynn Tie Back Chevron Print Tank – Coral – XS ($48) Yes. Yes. Yes. This top is exactly the style I have been trying to communicate to Stitch Fix – bold, bright, and fun! I was beginning to wonder what a home girl has to do to get the kinds of fun finds everyone else I know gets in their fixes. Thankfully, this one piece right here erased all my doubts that my stylist hates me! Admittedly, this top could be smaller, it’s a little long and roomy on my petite frame, and it’s VERY sheer, which require a tank underneath, but the colors are gorg. Totally me!!! It looks great with jeans, cropped pants, shirts, and pencil skirts. I think I will be able to wear at work and on weekends! It’s a keeper.
So, I actually already have a cobalt top in my closet (well, 2 or 3 if I’m honest), and I probably didn’t need this top, but I love cobalt. And the split top is so cute. I instantly loved this top. So much so that I put it right into the rotation. What can I say? I’ve already worn this top for a casual night out with the fam, and I think it also works with a patterned pencil skirt for work, which I’m gonna try soon!
#4 Laila Jayde Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top – Turquoise – XS ($58) So, I need more turquoise in my wardrobe like I need to have another kid (read: I don’t need turquoise or another kid), but it’s a beautiful color (which is why I have so much of it in my closet). This top is a little voluminous on my frame, and truthfully, if I saw this in a store, I wouldn’t buy it at this price. But as it seems to go with Stitch Fix, if you want more than 2 items in your fix, you may as well get them all! So, I kept it. I figure I can wear it with leggings, or with shorts come summer.
#5 Bancroft Powell Leather Detail Bangle Set – Yellow ($32) I love the yellow panel on the one bangle. Just a cute detail. However, I don’t normally wear yellow gold jewelry. Well, not since the 90s, anyway. But, like I just said, it just didn’t make sense to return these bangles when I wanted three items already. So, these are keepers.
I kept all 5 items. Total was $198 with the 25% off and styling fee deducted. Happy (belated) birthday to me.
