Stitch Fix #4

It's been FOREVER since my last Fix (see #1, #2, #3 here), so I was incredibly excited when FedEx dropped my package off yesterday! In this Fix, I specifically asked to have Jenna as my stylist again (she gets me) and for 5 business casual, tunic style tops that can be worn with skinny jeans or leggings. I also asked for tops that were in my budget (less than $48/top). Here's what I received:

I'm apologizing now for the terrible quality of these photos. I have very little natural light as it is in my home, but it's been raining since yesterday (not complaining, because we need it so badly!) and my home is especially dark. 


{Carter Striped Long-Sleeve Shirt by Tart-- $68}

I love stripes and I gravitate towards black in my wardrobe, so I figured this top would be a home run for me.  It's lightweight enough to wear now that there's a very slight hint of Fall in the air here in Texas and the perfect top to layer as the weather turns colder, too. It's slightly stretchy and the overall fit is very flattering. I definitely planned on keeping this one, until I saw the price tag. $68 is much too steep for a long-sleeved tee, in my opinion!

{Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top by Market and Spruce-- $48}

I'm pretty petite and normally not a fan of dolman tops because they tend to swallow me. This top was no exception. The fabric is buttery soft and incredibly comfortable, but in addition to the fit/style, I didn't love the color of this (not a fan of wearing blue). 

Here's another pic so you can (maybe) get a better gauge of the color:

{Chandra Plaid Sleeveless Blouse by Fun2Fun-- $44}

Close-up of the pattern:

Maybe it's the plaid or maybe it's the red, but this top just screams Christmas to me! It's 100% polyester which makes it perfect for summer and it can also be easily layered with a heavy cardigan or blazer for winter. I love front pockets and the overall fit of this one. I especially love the hi-low design of this top. It's perfect to wear with a pair of skinny jeans, leggings, or even a pencil skirt. The only thing I didn't love was the flap of fabric that runs down the center of this shirt. It kept flapping open and driving me crazy. I'm definitely torn on this one, but because I don't love it 100%, it's going back.

{Macklin Floral Print Blouse by Renee C-- $58}


I LOVE THIS TOP and I literally gasped when I pulled it out of the box. It is gorgeous, flattering, and definitely sexy. It has a hi-low cut, a slight v-neck, and a fun keyhole back. I can't wait to wear this on date night with a pair of skinny jeans. A little out of my price range, but I'm keeping it.

{Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse by 41Hawthorn-- $58}

I've been stalking this top for a while on Pinterest and was thrilled to see it my box! I especially love that I received in black, because that is my go-to wardrobe color after all! ;) It's the perfect length to wear with skinny jeans and I found the overall fit to be quite flattering for the most part. The only thing I didn't love (and what turned out to be the deal breaker for me) is the sleeves. The cut of the sleeves is rather awkward and bothersome to me.

Overall:
As usual, Jenna did a fabulous job of sending me tops that fit my requests. While some were out of my budget, had they fit me perfectly, I probably would have kept them. I've read on many blogs that your Fixes get better as time goes on and I have to agree wholeheartedly. I'm finding better fits as time goes on and they're starting to learn what I like and don't like based on my feedback. That's why I feel it's so important to be as specific as possible when you're sending an item back. Price too high? Tell them. Item too big/small? Let them know. 

And lastly, if you're ready to dive in and receive your first Fix, I'd be so grateful if you'd use my referral code to sign up. After you do, you'll receive your very own referral code, too. 

Happy Hump Day, friends!
