I just ordered a Stitch Fix box last month and decided I wanted to order another one this month since I had a trip coming up. This was Stitch Fix Box #11 for me! This box had some cute items, but it wasn’t really what I was wanting… I had asked for items for a tropical vacation and two of the tops had mid-length sleeves and I was also sent two pieces with a dark floral print. I usually try to stay away from dark colors when I’m in the tropics. I did find a cute cinched in pair of shorts that I kept, which you’ll see below. This is the second Stitch Fix box in a row that was disappointing for me, so I’m not sure when I’ll order another one. I went to the outlet mall a week after I received my Stitch Fix box and found so many more pieces that will work for my tropical vacation/this summer at a fraction of the price (Gap, Banana Republic and J. Crew outlet!). But, it is still fun to be surprised with a Stitch Fix box! Let’s get started…
I really wanted to keep this skirt, but I talked myself out of it. I have been wanting a dark floral piece, but I thought this time of year was the wrong time to acquire it. I do love how I added some Spring/Summery colors to the outfit to make the skirt not seem so dark. I have a really nice tie up cardi that matched the pinks in the skirt and I wore a lace cami underneath.
This top was a PITA. To be honest. It’s really light, so light that it’s hard to see the pattern. But, on top of that… it’s REALLY sheer AND cold shouldered. You’d have to wear a strapless bra with this, but you’d also have to find a strapless cami (which I don’t have), because it’s so sheer that you can see through it. I wish it had a lining or something, it’d be a lot more practical. For these photos, I wore a cami and tucked the straps into my strapless bra. LOL. I know. Craziness. I also didn’t like the mid length sleeves. It’d be a nice top for early Spring, but not for a tropical climate or the hot humidity we get here in STL in the summer.
This top is kind of heavy and another mid length sleeved top, which just wouldn’t work for my trip or summer here in STL. I also didn’t like the straps, they kept pulling up. The shirt didn’t want to stay down! lol! This shirt’s color does look really nice with the cinched shorts they sent, though.
I did land up keeping the cinched/drawstring shorts. I had asked for a pair of shorts with a bow type string on them, but this was the closest they had to that. It does seem these style of shorts are in. I’ll have to wear a tucked in shirt to really show the cinched part off.
This dress looks a lot better in the photos than it did in person, I think. It fit great on the bottom, but it was really baggy on the top! It was also another dark floral print, which I would like something lighter for the tropics. I also wanted something a little more fun and flirty for the trip. Something you’d wear for a date night. This just looks like an everyday dress. I styled it with a white blazer below, which looks cute with it.
Sorry to be so skeptical of what they sent, but just being honest with my disappointment! I used to get some really amazing Stitch Fix boxes, so I thought for sure I wouldn’t get two dud boxes in a row… but, I did!! I may try again in the fall, we’ll see!
