This week I’m trying Stitch Fix for the first time.
You pay £10 for a personal stylist to analyse your answers to an online style survey, so they can send you items they think you’ll love. Questions include style preferences, lifestyle and body shape.
You can add notes for them i.e. ‘Flat/low heels only’ and even review and adjust their first attempt online before they post it.
I’m under no obligation to buy anything and can return everything.
The stylist has understood my laidback style fairly well and chose clothes which compliment my colouring and also got my size right, overall. 💁🏻♀️
I specified low-mid rise, bootcut jeans. I got mid-high rise, skinny jeans. Eh!? 🤷🏻♀️
The fit of the dress, jump suit and play suit are perfect in the shoulders and chest but because they are gathered at the waist, they make my belly look the size of half a watermelon! 🤦🏻♀️ At the start, I left a note saying ‘I often have a very bloated belly that I’d like to hide’so again, a swing and a miss!
I’ve given my feedback on the site for each item (really detailed questions, which I appreciate). They have offered me another fix for free!
I’ve given them the clue that I like sports luxe and soft grunge. But I am going to have a sneak peak this time and maybe edit what the stylist chooses.
However, it was fun getting a surprise last time because I wouldn’t have usually considered a flowery dress or jump/play suits and now I definitely would! 💃🏽
Would you let a stylist choose your outfits for a change?
Why do my eyes always come across as a dull mint green in photo’s when they are lime green almost yellow?
I bought this to go under a thick navy style jumper as the neck was really wide, which looked kinda sexy but was way too chilly. I actually love how this shirt looks on it’s own though, which has surprised me. It feels like it’s made from the softest brushed cotton like the 90’s versions but it’s actually a man-made fibre.
I need to point out that although the cut is feminine to some extent, it’s more of a ‘boyfriend’ fit, so if you want a really fitted shirt then I’d suggest going down one or two sizes. I love the fit though as it’s one the few shirts I’ve been able to wear without getting button-gape across the chest, something that most brands never seem to allow for.
The show My So Called Life is the first in my series of Best 90’s Film and TV Style Icons. A mixture of Angela’s grungy look and Rayanne’s cool bohemian look has basically been my personal style ever since!
Yay, it’s so warm!..Ooh it’s a bit chilly in the shade…Dam, I need some of those cool transitions lenses, it’s too bright. Yup, it’s that sought of weather, so this is that sort of outfit. Still channeling the same 90’s grunge from last year but with less layers and I’ve finally got my legs out.
I was considered weird in my early teens in 90’s Gorton, Manchester. I dressed like an untidy boy and listened to weird out of tune music by a band called Nirvana. Then by my late teens ‘Grunge’ had hit all parts of Britain and I was cool apparently. These days with grunge being a popular look for off duty models there’s a legion of teens giving a damn about not looking like they give a dam. Irony upon irony.
I do alternate my style for different seasons and occasions but I always come back to some variation of this. I’ve piled it all on today as it’s so cold. If only I’d bought a leather jacket big enough to fit over the top!
