Stitch Fix #5: The one with all the stripes

Good morning!
 
I received my most recent fix in the mail on Thursday...always VERY exciting!  :-)
 
For an in depth run-down of Stitch Fix, click on my first “review” here.  Here are the basics:
 
1.  Fill out a style profile.
2.  Schedule a fix!  This can be as frequent (or infrequent) as you would like.
3.  Pay $20 – this is the “styling fee.”  However, if you keep anything from your box, it is automatically applied to your purchase.
4.  Get the clothes and try them on in the comfort of your own home with stuff you already have.
5.  You have 3 days to mail everything you don’t want back to Stitch Fix in a pre-paid shipping envelope.  If you keep all 5 items from your fix, you get a 25% discount.
 
As I said in the title, I got a ton of stripes (4 out of 5 items were stripey).  I love stripes, so this was not a big deal for me.
 
Here is a closer look at what I received in this month's box:
 
I'll start with my favorite item first: Tina Striped Open Cardigan 
Love, love, LOVE this!  The color is pretty and the weight of the sweater is perfect for this time of year - a great night-time sweater.  It's different than any cardigan I currently own.  Status: KEPT
 
Crosby Striped Maxi Skirt
I just don't think I look that great in maxi skirts.  Well, at least not the ones made of jersey material.  Maybe if this skirt were slightly more flowy, I would have gone for it.  Status: RETURNED
 
Brentwood Tiered Striped Long Sleeve Sheath Dress 
This dress was not for me...AT ALL.  I have seen it on some other blogs and the ladies who got it looked fabulous.  But on me?  I think it looks a bit trashy...Status:  DEFINITELY RETURNED
 
Alessandra Striped & Colorblocked Blouse
This was the second item that I kept.  I was so excited when I received it because I have seen it on a bunch of blogs and I adored it.  Plus, I have a huge crush on the color yellow.  I'm so glad that it fit me!  Status: KEPT
 
Selfridge Cowl Neck Long Sleeve Top
Typically, I love cowl necks.  And I certainly loved the color of this one.  In the end, though, I just decided that this top wasn't for me.  I can't quite put my finger on it, but I just didn't think this worked incredibly well.  Maybe if the cowl neck was a bit higher and the faux cami wasn't there...Status: RETURNED
 
Final thoughts:  Even though I only kept two items from this box, I really like the two items I kept.  I think I will wear both of them quite a bit.
 
And who doesn't love a great stitch fix photo shoot blooper shot?!?! (aka: Stitch Fix dance party)
