"I can't quit you", she says as she schedules her latest fix. After a break from Stitch Fix I decided to give them another go. Whenever you schedule a fix you are able to provide a note, for previous Fixes I never said anything. I just wanted them to provide clothes for whatever season they deemed appropriate. This time around however, I laid out a very specific task for my stylist; provide clothes I could wear to pre-wedding activities in Texas this fall. How did she do? Let's take a look.

What I Kept (and Sent Back)
I so wanted to keep almost everything in this box. The colors, the prints, the styles, it all screamed "Kristen!" However, my 5 foot 2 self could not even see my feet while wearing heels when I had on both the maxi dress and the jumpsuit. I could have gotten these pieces tailored but their price points didn't really allow for extra money to be spent on them. So they both went back.
The slinky, "Tiggy" dress was stained when I received it which is something that has never happened to me in all of my fixes (Stitch Fix was kind enough to wave my style fee for my next fix after I let them know there were issues with this item). All of that aside, this dress was my least favorite item in the box.
The purple, cold shoulder shirt matched the floral skirt perfectly. I danced around the house in this outfit for quite some time and I could see myself heading to the pre-wedding tea party in it. I was all about ready to commit $ to these two pieces when I suddenly remembered a purple shirt I had purchased from a previous Fix! What were the changes that shade of purple would work with this skirt? Turns out 100%! I was able to save some dollars and repurpose an old shirt from my closet!
The shirt went back but I happily kept the floral skirt!
This was the first time I mentioned a specific event that I wanted outfits for and I thought my stylist did a great job.
For my upcoming 5 day trip I was able to solidify 1 outfit. Which is a great start! I'm not one to schedule my Fixes so close together but because this is a special event I decided to have another Fix arrive about two weeks after this one. I've also opted to keep my same stylist since she did such a good job and now she knows what event I'm shopping for, which is not something I've ever done in the past. We'll see if keeping the same stylist and providing a note helps me find another outfit!
