Stitch Fix #8 – March 2017

Since my last Stitch Fix box was so good, I decided to order another one last month to see if I would get anything amazing.

If you are curious, here’s how it works: for $20, you get a personal stylist and fill out a questionnaire and then they send you 5 items to try on.  You can keep one, all, or even none and the $20 applies to any purchase.  Shipping is free, as is the return postage.  If you are also intrigued, you can try it: here.

Here is what I got in this month’s box:

1. Skies are Blue Neriah Cotton Cargo Jacket – $68.00

I was not a fan of this one.  The color was blah and the material seemed cheap and the style was not very flattering.

2. Market & Spruce Mireille Embroidered Dress – $68.00

IMG_3350.jpg

I liked this one, but have received a similar one in a past box and couldn’t rationalize keeping something so similar.

3. Skies are Blue Colina Mix Material Knit Top – $48.00

IMG_3357.jpg

Winner, winner!  This is why I love Stitch Fix.  I probably wouldn’t have picked this top out on my own, but it is super cute and flattering.  There is a shear part on the back and when paired with a black bra, is a little sexy for a night out with jeans and heels.

4. Loveappella Aleena Knit Romper – $64.00

IMG_3349.jpg

This romper did really not fit very well.  The torso was cut short and so the crotch area was up pretty high and was not comfortable.  I also feel like the top part is not super flattering to my figure and actually made me look a little bigger than I am.  I really would love a well fitting romper for the summer and actually requested one in my next box, so hopefully, I will have better luck.

5. Liverpool Cortland Cuffed Linen Short – $68.00

IMG_3358.jpg

These shorts are great and I am definitely keeping them.  The linen is soft and the olive green is versatile.  Shorts are sometimes hard to find, so these are a great pick.

Overall, this box had it’s hits and misses.  I really like the two items that I kept, but wasn’t crazy about the other selections.  If you are interested in trying Stitch Fix out for yourself, check out the  referral link: Click here to try Stitch Fix!

 

Stitch Fix #7 – December 2016

I took advantage of Stitch Fix waiving my $25 stylist fee and ordered another box this month.  If you are unfamiliar with how Stitch Fix works, you sign up here and fill out your style profile.  Once you decide you want a box, you pay a $25 stylist fee, which is then applied to any items you decide to keep.  Stitch Fix sends you five different items to try on.  If you want to keep one or all, great!  If not, you can send them back easily in a prepaid package.

Here is what I got in my box this month:

1. Skies Are Blue Renny Two Pocket Top – $58.00

IMG_3123.jpg

I love this!  I was kind of thinking about getting a plaid flannel for the winter and this one is super soft and fits well.  The red is fun for the holidays and I will get a lot of use out of the shirt.

2. Le Lis Stanley Striped Raglan Top – $48.00

IMG_3126.jpg

This is another very soft item.  I like the pocket in the front and the relaxed fit will be comfortable running around during the week with the kids.

3. Pixley Greenich Striped Knit Top – $48.00

IMG_3124.jpg

This is a cute navy and white top with awesome black leather elbow pads.  It’s fitted and quite flattering.  Another keeper.

4. Honey Punch Judee Ribbed Hooded Cardigan – $68.00

IMG_3122.jpg

This cardigan is super cozy and has a fun hood!  It’s navy, which is a little different from the multitude of black sweaters that I have.  I’ll be able to throw this on instead of a jacket.

5. Liverpool Anita Skinny Pant – $78.00

IMG_3121.jpg

These are skinny dress pants, not quite leggings and not jeans either.  They are form fitting and flattering.  Even though I have a pair of black skinny jeans that I love, I will keep these too if only because you get a 25% discount if you keep all five items, essentially making these free.

What a great box this month!  I think there has only been one other time that I have kept all five items.  I was given a different stylist this time, which maybe made a difference.  If you want to try Stitch Fix for yourself, here is a link.  Happy shopping!

Stitch Fix #6 – November 2016

I got an email recently from Stitch Fix that the normal $20 stylist fee would be waived for a year for me.  I hadn’t ordered anything in awhile, so decided to try it again.  Here is how Stitch Fix  works: for $20 (which is applied to anything you would buy), your personal stylist will send you five items to try on.  You pay for what you keep and send everything else bag in a prepaid shipping envelope.  Super easy!  If you want to try it for yourself, you can click here.

Here is what was in this box:

  1. Bay to Baubles Teddy Pave Circle Pendant – $28IMG_3002.jpg

This is not really my jewelry style and it’s a little big for my taste.  I think from now on, I will request no jewelry be sent in the box.  I am just too picky…haha.

2.  Market & Spruce Brookline Mix Material Sweater – $74

IMG_2991.jpg

IMG_2992.jpg

I took two pictures of this one because it’s the back that it pretty interesting.  It’s an open zipper back that has a light layer underneath.  It’s pretty cozy and I am on the fence on this one.  Update – the fact that I have 4 black sweaters in my closet makes me say no.

3. MTLA Jino Open Cardigan $58

IMG_2994.jpg

I really like this.  It’s super soft and comfortable.  I got something similar in my very first box that I wear all of the time.  For that reason only, this is a pass.

4. RD Style Pamella Sweater Dress $88

IMG_2990 (1).jpg

Yes!  This is perfect.  It’s a sweater, so it is casual enough to wear around during the day, but I could definitely dress this up too.  I really like the way it flares out at the bottom.

5. Edyson Hampton Corduroy Skinny Jean $68

IMG_2999.jpg

I love these pants too!  I have a pair of skinny red jeans that I got at Old Navy for super cheap several years ago, but they also get really loose in the waist and end up falling done midway through the day and I keep having to pull them up.  These are a perfect replacement and the material is really soft.

Well, two of the five is pretty good and I liked the other two clothing items quite a bit.  I may have to order another box sometime during this stylist fee waiver period.  If you want to try Stitch Fix for yourself, here is a link.

Stitch Fix #5 – July 2016

I had decided to take a little break from Stitch Fix for awhile to cut down on the clothes budget and because I had gotten several items from them over the last few boxes.  I received an email from them about waiving the stylist fee, so I decided to give it a shot.

Here is what was in the box:

1.  Skies are Blue Josue Cold Shoulder Chambray Top – $54

This top is very trendy right now, but I feel it’s a little young for me.  I can’t wear a bra with it and

2.  41Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey Top – $48

pic5.png

I kind of liked this one and was on the fence about it even though it was a little billowy.  When I tried it on for my husband, he said definitely no, so that sealed the deal for me.  It was extremely soft and comfortable, but looked a little too much like workout gear.

3.  Market & Spruce Dafne Knit Maxi Dress – $88

pic1.png

Maxi dresses are not for me I guess.  Another maxi dress, another time I look pregnant.

4.  Skies are Blue Montague Embroidered Top – $48

pic3.png

This is the top I am keeping out of the bunch.  It will be great for summer and luckily I have a strapless bra that will work with it.

5.  Dear John Kyleigh Straight Leg Jean – $78

Pic2.png

I have plenty of blue jeans already and mentioned that in my style profile, so I’m not sure why I received these in this box.  They are supposed to be cuffed, but I think they just look too short.  Even uncuffed, they are way too short.  Not a great fit.

So overall, I am a little disappointed with this month’s box, but considering the style fee was waived, I wasn’t out anything and I did keep one top that I like.  I will definitely wait a few months before getting another one and maybe try a different stylist this time.  I should probably go into my style profile and update some things as well to get a better selection.

I still have a promo code until the end of the month, where you can get a free $25 credit toward your box.  Feel free to use it: here

Stitch Fix #4 – May 2016

After skipping last month, I was excited to get my Stitch Fix box in the mail today.  It was a solid box and I had specifically requested some items for an upcoming Greece trip, as well as some floral shorts I saw in the Stitch Fix email newsletter.  If you are curious about Stitch Fix, here is their website.

Here is what was in the box:

1. Look by M Marlene Striped Warp Scarf – $28

4.png

This scarf is really cute and soft, but since I live in a pretty warm climate and already have a scarf, I will pass on this one.

2. The Korner Naomi Gathered Neckline Silk Blouse – $98

1.png

I really like this blouse.  It’s silk and very well made. I had to put on a strapless bra to wear with it, but that’s not a deal breaker.  I am trying to decide on this…it’s a little pricey for a shirt I don’t really need.  Any thoughts on this one?

3. RD Style Vanessa Chambray Shirt Dress – $78

5.png

This one is a winner!  I will totally get a ton of use out of this, both on the trip and just around.  It’s soft and comfortable and coming to my closet.

4. Gilli Sebastian Maxi Dress – $78

3.png

This dress was a good fit, but is not my style.  I felt that it makes me look a little dowdy, so I won’t be keeping this one.

5. Level 99 Cindi Printed Linen Shorts – $78

2.png

These were the shorts I requested and I was not disappointed.  Super cute, good fit, yay!

Stitch Fix #3 – March 2016

I received my third Stitch Fix box in the mail yesterday.  This time, I had given my stylist specific instructions for what I wanted.  I told her I was taking a family trip to Cancun later in the month and was looking for some stuff for the trip, especially a new beach hat.  Here is what was in my box:

1. Skies are Blue Laurice Color Trim Knit Top – $48

IMG_2318.jpg

This top is super cute and really soft.  It will look great with shorts or dressed up under a blazer with jeans.  It’s a keeper.

2. Collective Concepts Paddio Lace Inset Blouse – $54

IMG_2320.jpg

This navy top will be great for work this summer.  The lace on the shoulders is really pretty and although I am not crazy about the 100 percent polyester fabric, I think I will get a lot of use out of the top.

3. Market & Spruce Char Geo Print Maxi Skirt – $58

IMG_2322.jpg

I wasn’t sure about this skirt as I don’t really wear flowing things.  Both my daughter and husband raved about it on me though and I know that it will be good for our beach vacation.

4. Kut From the Kloth Corynne Distressed Boyfriend Short – $68

IMG_2319.jpg

I love these shorts!  I have a pair of jean shorts that I had cut from actual jeans, but they are really short and really only good for the actual beach.  I could wear these out in public and not be embarrassed.

5. Street Level Parker Tote – $58

IMG_2323

I think this bag will be great for travel.  It’s not real leather, which at first I was eh about, but after thinking about it, I won’t be worried if it gets spilled on or sits on the floor.  It also has a little wallet attached inside with a zipper to close, which is also nice when you are traveling.  I probably wouldn’t have kept this bag, but because I am keeping all of the other items, it pays for itself with the 5 item discount.  I would have preferred a hat, but oh well.

Another box, another success.  I really wasn’t planning on keeping all 5 items, but once I was feeling 3 or 4 of them, it made sense to keep them all.  In case you don’t know, Stitch Fix gives a 25 percent discount if you keep all of the items in your box.  You can check out Stitch Fix for yourself: here.
