My Second Stitch Fix!

I got my second Stitch Fix yesterday, and I am hooked!!  I got the shipping notification email late last week and was anxiously waiting for Tuesday's mail.  My stylist did a fabulous job again!!

Like my first fix, I received three tops, one skirt and one dress.  I peeked at the styling cards before I ripped open the tissue paper to get an idea of what was in my box.

So, let's talk about this top first.  I would never have picked this up in a store. Never.  I own nothing with a Peter Pan collar.  I own nothing with buttons down the back.  I never would have thought that this top could work for me.  But it does. Like a dream.  I like the swans, I love the blue, I even like the fancy-ness of the gold buttons.  It's a keeper for sure.  (In my original 'additional comments' to my stylist when I first filled out my profile, I explained that I love prints *of* animals, like birds or cat silhouettes, but I don't like animal prints like zebra stripes or leopard spots. Score!)

Next, I tried on this skirt.  I was a little hesitant about the stripes, but it's really cute.  The drape and little bit of pleating help to break up the lines a little.  Plus, its a bit shiny and metallic, so I think this skirt can be dressed up or down.  Another keeper.

Let's talk about the cardigan (top right.)  It has tiny embroidered owls on it.  I mean, I'm a teacher at a zoo.  Could there be a more perfect sweater for me? Probably not.  But if you want to search for one, by all means, let me know if you find something. My husband jokingly said this would be a perfect addition for my librarian collection of clothes. Pffff.

The white top on the bottom right is really cute too.  It's super sheer, so it definitely needs a camisole underneath it.  I really like it, but it's a little too tight at the bust.  Just a little.

But this dress.  This dress is amazing.  I love it.  (And my husband likes it too, so it's pretty much an automatic check in the 'yes' box.)  It's a bit stretchy, and it's short, which is great for my short body.  

I decided to keep everything.  Even the just-a-little-too-tight top. Why?  Because if you keep all five pieces, you get 25% off your total, and, for this fix, it's actually less expensive to keep all five rather than just the four.  Also, I won a $50 credit recently through an instagram contest, so my total was an unbelievable $92.50 for ALL five pieces. 

So, if you haven't already, but you want to try this for yourself, you can use this referral link (if you want to), and I'll get a credit when you get your Fix.  It's so fun!

Would you keep any of these pieces for yourself?
