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.
This was my sixth Stitch Fix box and the first time receiving two boxes in one month! I am loving Stitch Fix and Jenny is really starting to get a feel for my style. When I tried on the items in my box, I told my husband that all of these items had the potential to be keepers. I think Jenny did an amazing job with this fix, but I’m determined to de-clutter this month, so I wanted to keep only my absolute favorite items from this box. This fix was my toughest decision yet. This month, I asked for a long cardigan, non-black work pants, and jewel tones. Jenny managed to send me a great fix that met all of my requests!
(1) 41 Hawthorn Penny Draped Colorblock Cardigan ($68)
This cardigan is a beautiful combination of burgundy and camel. It looks great simply styled with a black tee, jeans, boots, and a statement necklace. I’m not a huge fan of ribbing, but this item is still really pretty and exactly what I asked for in my stylist note. However, the sleeves are about two inches too short. Sorry to say that this item had to be SENT BACK.
(2) Skies are Blue Pike Crochet Trim Top ($64) and
(3) Kut From the Kloth Jonathan Corduroy Skinny Pants ($48)
This top has such pretty detailing. I love the sheer sleeves and the lace trim are elegant details. I like the color of the top, but when I try it on, I do not feel it does much for my complexion. It is a little bit shorter than I would prefer and needs to be hand washed. I’m also concerned that the detailing would not hold up over time. Sadly, this was SENT BACK.
The corduroy pants were a simple decision. They are a beautiful color of light blue and can be styled for work or the weekends. They fit perfectly, so I must KEEP these pants.
(4) Skies Are Blue Nat Embellished Neckline Blouse ($38)
This blouse has been one of the hardest Stitch Fix decisions I have had thus far. I pinned this item on my style board and it is a beautiful jewel tone like I requested for my fix. I think the sparkle on the collar adds a little something extra and the pleated details are beautiful. This is a great shirt for the price, but I do not feel fabulous when I try it on. I think that it is a little too boxy and my shape gets lost underneath. SENT BACK
(5) Brixon Ivy Allegra Skirt ($74)
I was surprised to see a pencil skirt in my box. My style profile leaves room for adventure, but it also states that I am a pants kind of girl. When I tried this on, my husband, who I have known for almost 4 years commented that he liked the skirt, but also had never seen me wear a skirt. I’ve been seeing lots of cute pencil skirts in other bloggers’ fixes and I even pinned a couple on my style board. When I went to a conference in California this past December, I admired how professional pencil skirts looked on some of the attendees. I was thinking about taking the pencil skirt leap and Jenny must have read my mind because she sent me this beautiful skirt. It is a fun pattern and the black will go with lots of items in my closet. It is fully lined and very comfortable. They keep it way too cold where I work to wear this without hose and I avoid those at all costs, so my co-workers may never see this item. However, I could wear in the spring and summer to conferences and out on date nights. I really LOVE this skirt and know I should have something like this in my wardrobe, so this skirt is a KEEPer. Thank you, Jenny, for taking me a little bit outside my comfort zone and sending me such a great piece!
Stitch Fix is a really fun way to add new items to your closet and test your comfort zone. When I return items, I have to evaluate why I like or dislike them and it helps me better understand what drives my style. This month, I would like to thank my Mom for joining Stitch Fix via my referral link. (Wouldn’t you know that she got and ended up keeping the purple chevron Pixley top that I received in my first fix?!?)
