Stitch Fix #8

Hey there, things have calmed down a little bit. Kindergarten transition is going pretty well, and no signs of immersion stressing X out beyond belief. Definitely some stress, and he's tired, but he's excited to go to school and he is willingly putting on a polo shirt (buttons! horrors!) every morning. So far so good, and he seems to like having his buddy from daycare in the class with him.

Anyway, about the title of my post....I got another box! I think I missed a couple of them on this blog, and I'm losing my lust for the fixes. After 8 times (and I'm more of a quarterly fixer), I'm getting bored with the picks. This time I didn't get Dani, but I did get a stylist who checked out my Pinterest board and made thoughtful choices. But...

Market and Spruce Nic Knit Dress - $64 Really wanted to like this one as I had a couple of similar dresses pinned. Alas, it was too tight and I hate showing off my belly bulge. Back it went.

Renee C Tadeo V Neck Blouse, $54 and Liverpool Phillip Straight Let Trouser, $98. I liked the blouse, but I'm sooooooo tired of polyester. That's all I ever get when it comes to tops and I have my price point set all the way up to $150. What does it take to get a better fabric? Returned. The pant is comfortable and I really like the color. They didn't photograph well, but I walked around the house in them and asked S's opinion on whether they looked funny. Consensus is that they fit the way they are supposed to, it's more relaxed than many of my pants and I could use some more relaxed styles. Kept.

Some ridiculously high waisted pant for $98. It's like 12:30am, I'm not going to look it up. Hated these. They were a heavy polyester blend, didn't fit well and I can't stand high waist. Returned.

Liverpool Reagan Skinny Pant, $88.  I have another pair of these in my closet in a different pattern and regular size instead of petite so they're longer. I also have a pair of black skinny jeans so I decided I don't need another pair. Besides, I would have exchanged these for the regular size. The petite didn't fit all that well. Returned.

I'm frustrated after 8 fixes that I seem to be getting the same thing over and over again. I've tried a few different tactics of answering the style questions differently and it doesn't seem to help. So, either their algorithms are set to "same old same old" or there isn't a large enough selection to get variety after a while. And, I'm totally pissed about the non-stop polyester tops. Like, seriously. Stop it already.

I wear many of the pieces I've kept all the time, so it's definitely worked for me up until now. Not sure if it's just me feeling guilty about spending money after spending too much on other things this past month or if it truly is just kind of a bust this time around.  It could be a bust, after all new stylist and all. I feel sort of ridiculous putting my referral link here, but I will anyway. Take a look at my other more positive posts on SF and give it a go! https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/4555983
