Hi Socialites! As I discussed in my first and second reviews, my experience with Stitch Fix was very positive, and I strongly encourage my style-challenged readers to give it a try! In Part 2, I revealed 4 out of the 5 items my Stitch Fix Stylist chose for my Fix. However, I didn’t show my favorite of the set, which was this fabulous Stella Dress by Ixia.
I’ve had a history of shying away from dresses, mainly due to my specific body proportions: I am short-waisted, with a thicker middle. (I really wish I could wear a fabulous sheath dress, but alas, it ain’t in the cards!) Suffice it to say, I was skeptical when I pulled out this dress from my Stitch Fix package, but I saw the front tie, and thought “hmm, it might give the illusion of a waist line!” I tried it on, and my suspicions proved correct! My Stitch Fix stylist knew exactly the type of dress that would suit my figure the best!
This dress works well because the cut is very well proportioned: the almost bateau neckline is a good balance to the A-line shape of the skirt. The tie front really nips you in, and gives the illusion of a waistline. The fabric is very thick and sturdy which lends itself to a smooth look, and will also allow this dress to be transitioned into Fall with a jean jacket or cardigan, and knee boots. All in all, I was sold!
Naturally, I decided that this dress would be perfect for an after church walk down Main St. I dressed Baby Bella in matching red, white, and blue (The sailor edition ?) and we went a’strollin’!
I’ve been using my LV Neverfull a lot lately, but here’s another way to style the dress with a more casual bag: The Hermes Evelyne!
This Stella by Ixia dress was a winner in my book. I was sooo pleased with my Stitch Fix experience. If you love this dress, or my other items, and think that Stitch Fix would be great for you and your wardrobe, click the Get Started button below!
