Stitch Fix is an online styling service that offers members the expertise of a personal stylist to help update their wardrobe. To sign up for a Stitch Fix, you fill out a personal style profile that includes your sizing, style preferences, and clothing budget. Once your profile is complete, a stylist will send 5 pieces of clothing or accessories to your home for you to try out. You are able to keep the items for 3 days and try them out with your clothes, shoes, and accessories before making your final decision. Also, Stitch Fix sends you a styling card with each item depicting how to wear each item two ways: casually or dressed up.
Sara started my month out right with a great box of surprises from Stitch Fix! I know she really pays attention to my Pinterest board because I received two items I’d requested. She also sent me an item that I instantly adored, floral pants, which she referred to as the “elephant” in the box. So, let’s get started and see another wonderful Fix!
Here is Walcott posing with the contents of my box. He has grown since you last saw him and is now 11.5 pounds at only 10 months old! He will keep growing until he is two!
These are my styling cards! I love to see the different ways Stitch Fix suggests to wear items!
1) Margaret M Emer Floral Print Cropped Straight Leg Pant ($98)
How could I start with anything other than the elephant? I LOVE these pants! Sara says she has been trying to send them for several weeks now and they have been sold out. I’m really grateful for her persistence because these are a definite KEEP! A few years ago I would have shied away from a pant like this thinking there was only one way to wear it, but there are multiple possibilities. I’ve put together a few outfits from what I had in my closet so you can see some options. I also think a chambray top would look amazing with these, but I did not have the right one.
In this photo, I created a work look with a cream Theory tank and a pair of nude Payless pumps.
This weekend look includes a rosy pink Theory tank that matches the deep pink in the pants. A jean jacket creates a more casual feel and nude Nine West flats complete a look that can easily carry over into the Fall.
This look is a little more fun and would be great for concerts or a date night. I combined the pants with a floral detail tank by inLUV, my Stella and Dot Sanibel Pendant (flipped to the blue side), and nude Payless pumps.
2) Papermoon Alexus Dress in burnt orange ($68)
Sara recommended pairing this dress with the Zad Omar Wood Oval Statement Necklace from Fix #10. This was a winning combination. I added a pair of leopard print Nine West flats to complete the look. This dress had a higher hitting waist and flares out to hide problem areas and a gold back zipper, which I liked. However, the material felt cheap, the dress was not lined, and the cut had a little more flare than I found flattering. SENT BACK!
3) Street Level Anchorage Diamond Printed Tote in blue ($64)
I really like this tote. It is very roomy and has lots of compartments. It would be the perfect carry-on “purse” for flying because it would easy hold an outfit and toiletries in addition to your normal purse essentials. The outside is fabric, so it may not hold up well over time and the $64 price tag is very hefty for this brand. I am still on the fence about this one!
4) Brixon Ivy Jarred Lace Detail Cap-Sleeve Blouse in cobalt ($68)
This is an item that I have pinned more than once in hopes of receiving. It was a wonderful surprise! I love the color and the fact that it is a longer length. It looks great for work with Margaret M pants and nude pumps. It is also a fun casual top with my DL1961 Hillary Skinny Jeans in white from Fix #11.
5) Papermoon Albyn Embroidered Front Knit Top in navy ($48)
Sara sent me this top because it was on my Pinterest board. I like the color and was happy to try such a unique style. The shirt was very comfortable, but I did not find it to be flattering. I thought that the top was embroidered based on the name, but it is more of a knit overlay. I do not think it would hold up very well to washing and I was not at all impressed with the quality of the neck detail. SENT BACK!
Overall, I was very pleased with my Fix. Sara has sent me some amazing fixes and it took five boxes before I returned an item. I do take credit for messing up this streak since I pinned something to my style board that turned out to not really be my style. Oh well! I also have learned from my last two fixes that I dislike the quality of Papermoon pieces, so I will update my style profile notes to avoid receiving them in the future. I cannot wait to see what Sara has lined up for my next Fix!
Stitch Fix is a fun time for me and my kitties each month. The picture above shows Walcott and his new little sister, Waverley Mae, enjoying my box.
