Stitch Fix #5 (Possibly my last)

I got my latest Fix yesterday and I have to tell you I was SO disappointed. Everything was boring and matronly and plain. The colors were dark and drab, the cuts were wrong and the style just didn't seem to be me at all.

 The first thing out of the box was this Gilli Abie 2Fer Polka Dot Print Faux Wrap dress for $68.00. 
 And here is the 41Hawthorn Hobbes Striped Crew Neck Sweater for $58.00. 
 Up next is the 41Hawthorn Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan for $48.00.
 And the Margaret M Chrisiana Jacquard Print Pencil Skirt for $78.00. 
 The item I liked the most and the one I kept was this cardigan. I've wanted an open front cardigan like this for a while, so it fit the bill. The color is a nice jade green. So, I did keep this one. I don't know if I would have kept it if I liked something else better, but to save myself from losing the styling fee, I kept it and am excited to wear it, so that's a win. 
 And next is the pencil skirt. It was fine. I do like the way it fits but I don't like the colors or print. Maybe jacquard isn't for me.

 Ah this dress. It is really not awesome. I like the top and feel like it fits well but it is just too short and pretty boring.
 Somehow I didn't take a picture of this dress on the hanger but this is the 41Hawthorn Faya Sleeveless Keyhole Fit & Flare Dress for $88. It was fine but too short. I would have been tempted to keep it if it was longer and a more interesting color. I feel like it is just boring. 
The keyhole detail was fun though. 

I feel like of the 5 fixes I got only one of them was amazing. Two others were good and the other two were terrible. I was hoping it really did get better with time. So, for now, I don't have any fixes scheduled and I'm considering trying Front Door Fashion. Does anyone have any experience with that? How you you all feeling about Stitch Fix? Should I give them another shot? I absolutely LOVE the idea of getting a surprise box of clothes at your door. It just hasn't worked out as well in practice as I had hoped.

I like the idea of a surprise, but I take my surprises in a different way: the thrift store or consignment store. I feel like I can't always walk in looking for something specific, but I can always find things that I like, and with low prices, I don't have to feel constrained by choosing something that's not typical for me. I like the fun of making little alterations (making trousers "skinny" or adding ankle zips) or finding a blouse that is perfect with a shirt but many sizes too big. Of course, this is a time-consuming way to shop, but for me it's fun.
I say go with what you like to do. You always look put together and beautiful!
Happy thanksgiving!
