A Missed Stitch

"Oh yeah - I had to move to once a month on the down low because I'm so bananas about it all." I said to my colleague as we discussed our weekly dose of fashion. "How I'm getting away with it? The  ol' grocery store extra cash grab," I admitted, thankful that she too was familiar with the strategy.

This month the anticipation of the Stitch Fix was no different, the fastest sprint you'd see me run being from my car to the front door on the day it arrived. Here's what the well-marketed box contained for April:

Brixon Ivy Diaz Embrodiered& Crochet Detail Cotton Top in White:
sent back b/c although a great cut, didn't have quite the pizazz or color I normally seek

Brixon Ivy Crochet Skirt: darling in theory, but too tight across
the hips, causing the underlay to pull from the cute pattern

Kut From the Kloth Siena Capri Pant in coral: I had already fallen in love with
Macy's new colored denim and LOFT's new cut, so no need. Plus the color
didn't have enough punch and they were a bit snug in the calves

Gili Alina MIxed Geo Print Maxi Skirt: darling! The pattern was so much
fun, but I never quite got comfortable with the clinginess across the tush
and hips to justify the price. The black top featured was included as well,
but I've learned never to keep a top that's sheer on top because
I just won't wear it to work due to the brazier reveal.
Although this month was a missed stitch of sorts, it was still a delight to check out the items, consider them all and feel like Tish's best friend from her custom, friendly note.

Here's counting down to mid-May already! T has the duty to start preparing me for the islands!

PS: the post office box was full of SF returns for two days straight! Ladies are catching on to this awesomeness for sure!
