After trying on the Yuna Chevron Pointelle Knit Sweater, Colibri Plaid Printed Tab-Sleeve Shirt and Blake Poncho Pullover Sweater that my Stitch Fix stylist, Layla, included in my November fix; I couldn’t wait to see what else was in store.

Reagan Skinny Pant
The fourth item I tried on was the Reagan Skinny Pant from Liverpool ($88). This is the third pair of Liverpool skinny pants that I have received in the past few month. You’ve already heard me rave about my black Rizzo Skinny Pants on the first page of this post. I also received a brown pair of Reagan Skinny Pants in my 27th fix, which are also awesome. Needless to say, I was pretty pumped to try on this new black checked pair of pants and add them to my closet.
Unfortunately, I really didn’t love this pair.
They weren’t bad, exactly. They just felt a little too edgy for my personal style. and they reminded me of printed leggings, a style trend that I never embraced. I don’t feel comfortable wearing anything that even remotely resembles a horizontal stripe to wrap around my legs. And this bold check print looked a little too much like a stripe.
I was surprised to discover that I don’t love every single pair of skinny pants from Liverpool. But I’ll still be excited if another pair comes my way in a future fix.
The final item included in this month’s fix was a winter white dress with black and gray floral print. I love a good floral print and I’m sure that’s the reason Layla sent the Ellington Dress from Maggy London ($158) my way. I’m not going to lie, when I saw a photo of this dress in the Stitch Fix app on my iPhone, I was a little disappointed. My skin turns very pale in the winter and the thought of wearing a white-ish dress didn’t sound very appealing. The dress just didn’t seem very interesting to me.
Even though I wasn’t particularly excited about the Ellington Dress, Layla did mention in her note to me that it was a fit & flare dress, which helped calm my disappointment a bit. Fit & flare dresses are the most flattering style for my body type and they always create a feminine silhouette when I wear them.
I wore a pair of patent leather pumps and sheer black stockings with the dress. I also added the Nadri Bracelet I wore when I walked down the aisle. I love any reason to wear something from my wedding day.
The sleeveless dress was very flattering, but I still wasn’t convinced that I loved it. There was a whole lot of white and a lot of my own pale skin to deal with, so I added a 3/4 sleeve black cardigan with sparkly beading along the neckline. (Similar here.)
And just like that, I fell in love with the Ellington Dress.
It’s amazing how a simple cardigan can be exactly what you need to pull an outfit together.
I really wanted to keep this dress. I even asked Rob if we had any special occasions coming up that would merit the expense of adding a new dress to my closet. Unfortunately, we don’t have any fancy events scheduled for the next several months. Sadly, this dress is getting returned. Maybe you have a special occasion coming up. If so, you should pin this to your style board on Pinterest and then tag me in a photo of you wearing it on Instagram so I can live vicariously through you.
Here’s a quick look at the items I decided to keep (and which items I returned) from this month’s fix:
Yuna Chevron Pointelle Knit Sweater from Market & Spruce ($68) – KEEP
Blake Poncho Pullover Sweater from Colourworks ($68) – KEEP
Colibri Plaid Printed Tab-Sleeve Shirt from Market & Spruce ($48) – KEEP
Reagan Skinny Pant from Liverpool ($88) – RETURN
