Good morning! Today I am sharing the 5th piece from my Stitch Fix box. When I took it out of the box, I wasn’t overly impressed. I loved the fact that it was all white, which is definitely trending right now. The fabric felt very soft and the lace touches were nice, but it didn’t seem to have a lot of shape. But then I put it on…
First of all, the dress is a version of a shirt dress, which is a shape that works well with my straight figure. It is a style that always seems to work on me. The dress is made with a lovely embroidered fabric–not only is it a beautiful detail, but embroidered pieces are once again trending. The lace detail on the yolk is also soft and pretty, and the dress is lined, so it doesn’t require a slip underneath.
You can see the hint of a high-low hem, which is also a nice detail. I wanted the dress to stand on its own, so wore a pair of nude ankle kitten heels by Louis et Cie from Nordstrom. I bought them last year for our cruise to Dubai and love the comfort and the touch of gold on the heels and trim.
For jewelry, I again wanted it fairly simple but I wanted a rich gold that would stand out. So I styled the dress with my gold and silver disc earrings and the cuff bracelet from my Stitch Fix box. You can see how nicely this fabric drapes in the back with the self-fabric tie belt.
The only thing that bothers me is the armholes which seem just a tad too big. The dress is a medium and I usually wear a small, but, for the most part, this seems like the right size. I may end up taking it to a tailor to take in the armholes a bit–or maybe not!
FYI-the dress is by Collective Concepts for Stitch Fix.
So far I am really enjoying my Stitch Fix experience. Thanks to those of you who recommended it to me! I honestly believe I will get lots of use out of these pieces, so you will see them again in another post styled another way.
