I’m on a mission to find all the best retro-inspired clothing available. This is shipment number two of our Stitch Fix Review series. Find out how it stood up to our expectations and what I decided to keep. Was it retro? Find out.
After receiving my first Stitch Fix in the mail last month, I decided to be very honest with my stylist about what I liked and what I didn’t. Also about what fit me well and what showed off a little too much skin.
This is a great thing about the Stitch Fix program. They give you the ability to communicate with your stylist after every shipment to let them know what you’d like to see more of or less of. While I absolutely adore some of the cute short skirt styles of today, my old butt is not going to be very comfortable in them. So we simply had a conversation about what types of clothing make me feel awesome.
Isn’t that style 101- if you’re not immediately comfortable in it, don’t buy it? At least, that’s what my mom always taught me.
Besides, the real reason I wanted to give Stitch Fix a try was to see if my stylist could find retro inspired clothing for me that would kick my closet up a notch. Even though some of the pieces from my first shipment were not very retro, after this second shipment, I’m a believer!
It’s Perfect. All of it.
I’ve had many people tell me that as your stylist gets to know you better over time, your Stitch Fix shipments improve. Makes perfect sense to me because this second shipment was awesome!
Everything in my fix had retro notes. There was tie dye, flare sleeves, vintage lace. Well, here – let’s take a look through it all together.
Felton Bell Sleeve Top by Kaileigh
From first sight, I knew this top would be mine! I loved the soft pink color, the flowingness of the fabric, and my heart made a big thump when I saw the bell sleeves. :swoon:
I was happy to find that this new shirt paired very nicely with the pair of capris I recently received from prAna. The capris are a soft gray color and the hemp fabric was a nice addition to this outfit.
The whole thing was so soft! I felt great in it.
I paired this outfit with a gray ombre purse and a black pair of Tieks. Makes for a lovely girls night out ensemble or casual media event, don’t you think?
I’m keeping it!
Jordan Tie-Dye & Tassel Scarf by The Accessory Collective
Because this is tie-dye, I immediately thought it was cool. As I pulled it out of the box, I was hoping for a skirt or a dress. . . but. .
It’s a scarf?
Please tell me what I am supposed to do with a scarf in the summer?
As I toyed around with it and tried tying it up in my hair to no avail (it’s too heavy and long), I finally wrapped it around me. Ok, it was perfect as a wrap.
I envision myself using this scarf on cool summer nights to stay warm or packing it into my bag for a nice cover up at the beach.
It has possibility, so I’m keeping it.
Guinevere Knit Maxi Dress by Leota
This dress was a bit startling at first. The pattern – oh my! However, after putting it on, I absolutely adored it.
When I signed up for Stitch Fix, I told my stylist that I didn’t mind standing out in a crowd as long as it was for the right reasons. I think she decided to put me to the test.
It’s soft. It is flattering to my waist with perfectly positioned rouching and the slit makes it easy to move around in. I’m keeping it!
Harley Released Hem Bermuda Short by Prosperity
This was the second time I had gotten long shorts from Stitch Fix. To tell the truth, I wish I would have kept the pair from my first box. So, I wasn’t going to let another pair go and regret it – again.
Typically I am used to short shorts, however, these are super soft and comfortable! Probably the most comfortable pair of shorts I’ve ever had.
I can easily see myself wearing these on a daily basis. Therefore, I’m keeping them.
Marritt Lace Detail Top by Your Story
The only piece in this box that I didn’t really care for was this Marritt Lace Detail Top. It was ok, I just wasn’t sure what to wear it with and I have deep concerns that my water will turn it orange.
While I considered sending it back, it didn’t make sense. This is because Stitch Fix offers you a 25% discount if you buy all five items and since I wanted four of them, keeping this top actually saved me money. So – it stays. Hopefully, I will be able to find the perfect thing to pair it with some day.
