Stitch Fix Bummer

So, earlier this week, I got another Stitch Fix box. Of course, I was looking forward to it and couldn't WAIT to get home and try everything on. I was so bummed because this box was just NOT working for me. :( But I want to share the items in case anyone else sees something that they like. 

This was the note from my new stylist... Danise... Let's just say I missed Melinda. :( I'm not sure what a "jean challenge" is- but I said I loved the last pair just wanted something a little more affordable than $200. Loved that she looked at my notes though. I do think she tried- but she missed the mark. Gave me lots of bright colors... just not in things that were my style. 


This top had a cute pattern, but I didn't like how high-up the neckline was and it was just a bit short. It hit at an odd spot and when I lifted my hands, it would lift up a bit. Also, it was sheer but had lace details along the bottom. If I wore a tank under it, you'd miss the lace detailing.

These jeans... Sigh. Okay, so they were a little tight, but my biggest complaint is the distress on them. I have never been a big fan of distressed jeans. I know some people love it, but I nearly ripped them in half when my foot went through the knee holes! YIKES! It's just too much.

The denim was incredibly soft and I think I would love a pair that had a cleaner look.

Okay. This top... Sigh. I am 5'3"- kinda on the short side. So, I sometimes wear petites. Clearly, I don't need petite tops! LOL This shirt was WAY too short for me! I'm not sure I loved it anyway, but it certainly wasn't being purchased!

Muffin Top anyone? 
I'm a mom. I need a mom bag. If I go on a date with my husband, I make him carry my lipstick in his pocket. I have NO interest in clutch bags. I need a handle. It's not the size- it's the fact that I need to be able to put it on my shoulder when I'm trying to wrangle kiddos. But I suppose this bag is cute enough. Just not practical or worth the money for my lifestyle.

It did open up quite a bit...

I wanted to LOVE this dress. But I'm not sure how the stylist thinks this would be able to be worn more casually. It's a fairly heavy and well constructed dress. I just felt like it was a bit more formal than I wear on a regular basis. Oh and it was on the hanger, because it was pretty snug through my hips. I figured you'd get a better idea this way.

I still love StitchFix, but I had to send EVERYTHING in this box back. It is a bummer, but I'm not wasting money on purchasing something I didn't love. I also think it sends the wrong message to the stylist when people purchase something only to sell it.
