Stitch Fix Reveal: January 2014

This month's box was my favorite to date! So much fun to open and try on. I was instantly excited to see navy peeking out of the box, and happy to find gold-toned jewelry as well. I have requested Michelle as my stylist for the last several boxes, and I'm really pleased with her taste overall. I can't wait to share these items with you - so here we go!

Item #1: Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top by Market and Spruce

I wasn't sure if I'd like this top, as it's very drapey on top, with a wide v-neck, but when I tried it on, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the fitted sleeves and waist made it quite flattering, yet still very comfortable. The deep teal blue color is very nice and the fabric is lightweight so this can easily transition to spring and even summer for days spent inside the office. (Maybe with crisp white pants or capris?) Verdict: Kept it.

Item #2: Benetton Striped Cardigan by Renee C

 This is a little bulkier than what I typically like to wear, seeing as I'm slimmer up top than below - so I like to keep tops and sweaters sleek and feminine - but, this sweater is actually really cozy and it's navy and white - a favorite color combo. I thought it would be cute to throw on with a white tee, jeans and boots for those cold early spring baseball games I'll be watching my son play. Verdict: A little bit of a style stretch for me, but kept!

Item #3: Kristan Ruffle Knit Blazer by Market and Spruce

So... this is totally my all-time, hands-down favorite Stitch Fix treasure yet. I am SO in love with this adorable blazer! First of all - though it looks structured and nice enough for meetings at work, it's made from a silky smooth, stretchy navy knit making it crazy comfortable! The chiffon ruffle detailing on the back of the blazer stretches down to cover my behind a bit, which is very nice - and the ruffle is flat, so it doesn't add poof back there (Lord knows I don't need any more poof there). I'm pretty sure I'm going to wearing this a LOT. In fact, I've already worn it once this week and I just got my box on Tuesday! ;-) Verdict: KEPT.

Item #4: Phelan Abstract Chevron Print Short-Sleeve Blouse by Collective Concepts

I typically love black and white clothing, and I love chevron, but to be honest I'm not totally in love with this broken chevron pattern. It seems a little busy to me. I like the pleats down the center of the top, the sleeves aren't too snug, they actually fit well - and the v-neck is nice. Unfortunately, the waist hem of the blouse is a bit snug on the hips (like most non-stretchy blouses on me) and I'm just not in love with the silhouette of it. Verdict: Sent back.

Item #5: Leighton Metal Bauble Necklace by Pixley

When I first saw this necklace in its box, I wasn't sure if it was going to feel cheap - judging by the texture of the gold discs, but when I took it out - I realized the necklace was nicely weighted and well made. The length (which is adjustable, too) is very nice at all points, making the necklace versatile for many different top styles and necklines. Verdict: Kept.
