It is Stitch Fix time again!! There was a box waiting for me when Chuck and I returned from out west. I opened it this morning, and I wasn’t disappointed.
Here’s what I found. A soft pink dolman knit sweater by Papermoon is luscious. A black and white knit dress from Gilli will be perfect for day and evening. The lace-up back detailed blouse gives my wardrobe a cool vibe, and the Liverpool black skinny ankle pants goes with just about everything.
So let’s take a closer look.
First, my personal stylist got instructions from me that I have three big events planned for this fall. First, I have a class reunion to attend. Lord help me, because I’ve been on a diet all summer long. Second, Chuck and I are going to China; and third, my daughters, sister, and I have a blogging conference planned, too. So I needed just the right pieces.
My personal stylist Cindy did not disappoint! I tried on the lace-up blouse first and loved (LOVED) it. It will go with just about any color slacks I already have, but it is so light weight. Chuck and I just found out that we cannot have more than 44 pounds in our individual suitcases while traveling in China, so I have to take clothes that are lightweight.
The skinny pants go with everything, especially this blouse that I already owned. The shoes below were in the Fix, and I’ll review them later in this post.
and the knit dress. I thought it looked super underneath the dress for a night on the town—say in Shanghai? They tell me that Shanghai is like New York City.
The dolman top also goes with so much. I tried it with a black skirt to dress it up…and with a pair of jeans to dress it down.
Then I got carried away. I just bought a new pair of camel colored pants, and the blouse goes well with them, too.
Then my daughter suggested something that wasn’t so matchy, matchy. I liked it too.
Finally, I got a pair of shoes in this Fix; but I did not have a Cinderella moment. They are super cute, and my stylist did have a terrific idea. She suggested for the long 13 hour flight over or back that I wear them with a tee and cardigan. Then after the flight I could fold them up and fit them into my tote. Grand idea, but the shoes didn’t fit. They were too small.
Thankfully, though, my daughter Jamie loved them, so I gave the Yosi Samra Leather Toe Stud Flats to her. They fit her perfectly.
Here’s how it worked out financially. My entire fix this quarter was $332. If I kept every piece they sent, though, then I received a 25% discount of $83 and a credit for my styling fee which is $20. My new total for all five pieces is $229, about $45 a garment. I was happy with that.
If I had sent the shoes back, the total would have been $83 more, and the shoes cost $88. That is too much for these shoes for my budget, but it made sense for me to give the shoes to my daughter. She is pleased as punch.
