I’ve decided I’ve been phoning in my appearance, with the lack of Botox and fillers, and my dumb hair, and especially with my clothes. Hello, same things year after year. So I revamped my Stitch Fix (SF) membership, a thing you should be familiar with as we usually delight in voting on the SF outfits that come to my boss. But she has put her SF membership on hold so it’s up to me to take the reins, apparently.
These and other horse refs hoofing your way as I welcome you to the “Yay or Neigh on June’s Stitch Fix Roundup.”
If you AREN’T familiar, SF is a subscription service where they send you clothes and you decide to keep them or return them in a huff. You can help me decide on that, right here in this blog.
The advantage my boss had is that (a) she gets to be my boss WHAT A REWARD and (2), she had me to photograph her when her SF box came to the office. Seeing as I live alone, except for with pets and they have no thumbs, I had to improvise by placing my phone on my kitten scale, then setting the timer.
Here is a photo of me before I tried everything on, in my regular outfit, so we have some idea who we’re dealing with. The silhouette we have, so to speak.
Kidding. But her hair is magnificent.
Do you find it sad that I posed like a mannequin alone in my kitchen in front of my kitten scale? That’s because you don’t know the meaning of fun.
All right. Here’s our first item up for judgement. Please keep in mind I requested everything be machine washable.
This is the Whitley Striped Open Cardigan. Here it is from the back.
You see that I began putting away all my Christmas cards and then lost interest, a trait my old college roommate Sandy can tell you dates back to at least 1989.
Next up, another sweater! Will the unpredictability ever end?
Just to shake things up a tad, let’s get into my jeans. I’ve NO idea what these poses are meant to do.
I guess I didn’t step far enough away from the camera, but they go all the way down to the ankle. In case that affects your decision-making. [From the movie Arthur. Burt: “I never drink. I think drinking affects your decision-making.” Arthur: “You may be right. I can’t decide.”]
Let’s move on to a pink top that we will assume won’t normally be worn with my black bra.
I think really the best part of me are my yes-or-no lines on these polls. I was born to write these.
Finally, they sent me a purse. I’m pretending to hail a cab, what with all the cab hailing I do here in Greensboro. You can also see the jeans again.
Here are its guts.
Please vote at some point before tomorrow morning when I have to send these items back or keep them forever like my grandmother’s dance card.
Thank you for your participation in this pressing matter. Thanks for fixing my stitch.
I love this thread,
