For this fix, I asked my stylist to 'think summer'. My stylist was once again Ashley. She wrote a super sweet, personal note and she definitely paid attention to my Pinterest board and my notes to her. She was on the right track with the items she chose for me. Bright colors and fun prints! It all definitely fits the bill for summer, but for one reason or another, (spoiler alert) most of these pieces didn't work for me. Summer bummer!
If you've stumbled upon this blog and have no idea what Stitch Fix is, here's the low down. Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that's fun, simple, and set to your budget. A box of clothes and acessories chosen just for you shows up on your doorstep every month or however often you desire. It's ideal for someone who never has time to shop or hates to shop, someone who needs a closet makeover, or someone who just loves fashion. Head on over to What Is Stitch Fix? if you want more information.
On with the show!
So...back to the Kensie dress. It has an adorable retro looking pattern and is a lemony shade of yellow. Love that it has pockets and the pleats are cute. Here are some things I ponder about this dress: If I could get over the Carol Brady thing, does this color wash me out or does it look good on me? Do the pleats and pockets work for me or against me? I don't have a natural instinct about these things, which is why I make a lot of shopping mistakes and ride the buy and return merry-go-round too often.
It's like a sensory thing for me or something. I can't stand the feel of it on my skin. Ashely had no way of knowing this information, so no hard feelings Ash. I totally get why she chose this top for me and dang I look good in it! But I can't. I just can't.
Oh my gosh, I just had a lightbulb moment while writing this, because my daughter has been fussy about the way clothes and fabrics feel her whole life and I always thought it was just her being a drama queen, but maybe she gets it from me! Gasp.
If you read my last post, you may recall I had requested a fix for a trip to Ireland. I'm happy to report Ashley 100% delivered! I skipped writing a review for that fix temporarily because I plan to up my game and take my blog international. I will shoot the photos while I'm actually in Ireland. So hang tight and that post will be up next month. (I kept it all, FYI!)
