I am officially the worst at making decisions. You’d think I was having to commit to naming our first child or something. Do yourself a favor and don’t ever ask me where I think we should go to dinner or what drink to order at Starbucks!
Today I am coming to you with my latest box of fashion goodies. It seems like a lot of you enjoyed helping me choose what to keep last month, so I thought it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to ask for your input again. Ready?
May 2015 Stitch Fix Breakdown
Those who have been reading the blog for some time probably expect to see posts covering (mostly casual) fashion come up from time to time. If you are new to the blog or concept of Stitch Fix (<- affiliate link), check out my first review for all the details.
You might even be able to just scroll around on Bloglovin’ too. Stitch Fix is becoming quite the popular fashion trend these days!
Scroll below to get a peek into my latest shipment and let me know what you would keep (or, more specifically, what you think I should keep) in the comments.
Thanks in advance for any help!
This month’s fix included:
This Market & Spruce Memphis Lace Overlay Knit Shirt: $58.
This Olive & Oak Phoenix Dress: $68.
This Dear John Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino Short: $48.
This Gilli Gillian Sleeveless Dress: $68.
This Papermoon Watford Knit Top: $44.
The first thing I tried on was the Dear John Roll Cuff Short. My stylist suggested I wear it with the lace sleeved top I kept from a previous fix (<- whoa, has it already been a year?) and accessorize with a long statement necklace.
In need of more age appropriate shorts that don’t make me blush around family, I got excited when I found a perfect fit in this pink and white striped pair. The price tag, however, is a little more than I would normally spend on one pair of shorts… so, meh.
I tried the tops on next, but I wasn’t super thrilled with either one. I loved the design of the striped Papermoon Knit Top, but the price tag got me again. I feel like even $10 less would make a huge difference in what I keep and what I don’t. I know I would get a lot of use out of it though.
The color of the Lace Overlay Knit Shirt didn’t really do anything for me. It’s labeled as light pink, but definitely looks more like a tan shade in person. I don’t think I own anything this shade, which is probably a good think with my winter pale skin!
(Maybe… for the full box discount?)
I did, however, like that the lace detail wrapped all the way around the back, and I loved how the style sheet dressed it up and down. Tucked into a casual skirt and layered with a jean jacket, I can see it being a great item to have around.
I saved the dresses for last, and I fell for the Olive & Oak dress right away!
It’s adorable and exactly what I was looking for to get me through wedding and shower season quickly approaching this summer.
The last item I tried on was the Gillian Sleeveless Dress. At first glance, I thought I would like this item. After I tried it on, I loved it. You can dress it up with heels, down with flats, and go fancy or casual with accessories.
Scott and I have at least a handful of weddings to attend over the summer, so I’m leaning towards keeping the dresses. I want to keep the shorts, but add the three of those items together and that’s a $184 checkout. Yikes!
If you decide to keep your entire box, you get a Buy 5 Discount, which would make keeping all five items $194.50. (I had a $25 credit going into this box!)
I realize that $68 per dress is a little stiff, but shopping hasn’t been on my side lately. I just don’t like it anymore. I get pretty annoyed sifting through racks of clothes that don’t usually fit me right, and just don’t have the patience to dress up and down dressing room after dressing room. Call me crazy!
When I browse around online for dresses to wear to weddings and events, I end up spending about the same amount… so it’s really not that far of a stretch if I really love the items and how they fit. I need to return my shipment later today, so here’s where you guys com in.
Do I keep both dresses? What about the shorts? Is it worth just keeping the whole dang thing?
My first world problems are ridiculous, I know.
Thanks in advance for your advice and indulging in my fashion woes. <3
