I requested another box of Stitch Fix outfits from my favorite stylist,
Nicole. She always nails my style. This time, I requested a box of
work tops for spring/summer. The dress code at work is business casual,
erring a little more on the casual side. Also, my office is always
cold so I need items that can easily be layered but also look great on
their own. You all know the
routine, I’ll be showing you what I got, what I think about the pieces,
how much they are, and what I kept/sent back.
Sweet Grey–Nicky Cold Shoulder Cotton Top, LP, $58
Just Black–Nysa Skinny Jean, 14P, $78
Let’s start out with the most fun item in the whole box, this cold shoulder top. This is so out of my comfort zone, but I actually really liked it (until I saw the pictures). The fabric was soft and light, which is perfect for summer. I don’t have any cold shoulder tops, so that was something different for me. I love the color scheme of red and the blue/cream on the shoulder straps. But, oh, the shoulder straps. You have to tie the bows. They’re not tied and stitched in place, which would’ve been ideal in my opinion. Knowing me, the bows would’ve driven me crazy. I am not a great bow-tier, so to not have them perfect really bothered me.
However, now that I look at these pictures, the shirt makes me look very top heavy. My shoulders look so wide. So, even though I didn’t keep the top because of the straps, I don’t actually think this looks good on me.
The jeans are a different story. I have one pair of white skinny jeans that I love, but as we all know white does not stay white forever. These jeans fit me very well and they were soft. So, they stayed!
I sent the top back.
Skies are Blue–Josie Shortsleeve Shirt, L, $54
Can you tell I love this shirt? This actually looks really good in the pictures but it did not flatter me in person. The cropped sleeves just do nothing for my shoulders. I really need either a longer sleeve or a seam where the sleeves meet the body of the shirt. It was SO hard to send this back, but I have asked Nicole for a similar shirt with longer sleeve in my next fix!
Emory Park–Dulce Cross Front Knit Top, L, $28
I love this top, too! Spoiler alert: I kept this. I have one olive green short sleeve tee that is okay but don’t love (seen here on Instagram). Since this top flatters my shape better, this was kept! I have put my original olive green shirt in a ‘sell’ pile.
ALEXANDER JORDAN–Gable Chambray Printed Cotton Top, L, $38
My last top was this chambray button-up shirt, which was very timely. Two of my chambrays (that I love) had holes in their fabric, so I’ve been looking for a couple replacements. This actually had a plan print on it, which isn’t my style. It was cute, but I’d rather have a plain chambray. This was sent back!
What do you think of my most recent Stitch Fix? Do you think I should’ve kept the black and white top?
