Thanks to those of you who have been trying Stitch Fix along with me, once again I built up some credits to spend. Yay-thank you!
My latest fix had some things I adored, and some that seem almost right but have me still guessing. This bracelet set is absolutely lovely, but at $36 for the set, I just can’t pull the trigger. I am much more likely to hunt for jewelry at thrift stores, honestly.
Next up is the item is this chevron print maxi skirt. I adored it the second I saw it. I have two maxi skirts already– one in navy, and one in a tiny brown pinstripe. Both are so comfy and versatile that I’ve really been wanting another. And this one is just fabulous. The pattern is flattering, I think, and I have lots of brown and turquoise in my wardrobe already with which to pair it. For sure I am keeping this.
The next item is this delicately patterned white sweater. It is very lightweight and has a pretty nubby feel to it.
I like the way it looks from the front, but the back has some ups and downs and some flaring that I’m not really sure about. I am pretty sure it makes me look wide in back– what gal wants that? My husband said something about a peacock’s tail when he saw it. I already have a similar sweater in cream, but it is slightly heavier weight and won’t be wearable in warmer weather, whereas this one is so light that it could easily be worn longer into warm weather. But, the back? So not sure.
This next top is in a color that is very flattering to me, and most of the top is a nice stretchy fabric. But the panel in front is a woven and tugs across the chest in a less-than-great way. I want to love it, but because of that odd panel, it’s not the best fit. Also, it’s super see-through.
This last top is nice considering it is a tank top. It has good coverage in back, and with another tank worn underneath, I think it is fairly modest. I like the looseness and length, and can picture wearing this at home tons in the summer. My teen daughters and I both liked the top ‘in person’, but seeing the photo of myself in it, I’m wondering if the large crosswise stripes are widening? Tempted because I think if I kept it I’d probably wear it often, but not quite sure. Also, it is $48 which seems insanely spendy for a tank, even if I am buying it with credits.
I’m thinking that I will keep only one thing besides the maxi.
1. Is the tank cute enough to be the second ‘keeper’ despite the price?
2. Should I consider the lightweight white sweater instead?
3. Should I keep only the maxi?
Those are the three options I’m weighing. Help?
