It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Stitch Fix post. Almost six months, in fact. After I organized my home using the KonMari method, I wasn’t anxious to bring in any new clothes. But, with fall weather upon us and some recent weight loss success, I was feeling inspired to update my wardrobe.
If you’re unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, it’s a personal styling service that delivers 5 articles of clothing to your door at a frequency that you determine. You try them on in the privacy of your own home, keep the ones that you like, and return the ones you don’t at no extra charge.
The stylist, Amanda, did a really great job paying attention to my notes and trying to accommodate my requests. I asked for a great pair of skinny jeans and outfits to go with my new Peacock Hunter Boots and Ballerina Pink Tieks. Amanda also checked out my Pinterest board and sent me one of my favorite pinned pieces! Here’s the first outfit from Stitch Fix October 2015:
1) Bolton Plaid Scarf by Octavia: I’ve been looking for a great scarf to add a touch of color to my fall wardrobe. Unfortunately, I don’t care much for burgundy. Also, I wasn’t impressed with the material. I’m really looking for one really special high quality scarf that I love. This just didn’t fit that bill. In the future, I may consider upping my price points to get higher quality pieces.In the photo, I paired the scarf with the Bonno Mixed Material Pullover Sweater, the Freida Skinny Jean, and my new Hunter boots as recommended by the stylist. Verdict: Return.
2) Bonno Mixed Material Pullover Sweater by Market & Spruce: I liked the idea of a big cozy sweater, but this was not the one for me. It was a little too large, so the fit was a bit boxy, but that honestly wasn’t the deal-breaker. The material seemed very low quality and I found it to be itchy even with a shirt underneath. Verdict: Return.
3) Corinna Striped Dolman Top by Market and Spruce: The top was a little snug around my midsection. In fact, I felt like I needed to pair it with a blazer to feel comfortable being photographed in it. (The blazer is by Tart, by the way, and was a keeper from my last fix.) Verdict: Return.
4) Ellie Elephant Print Blouse by Pixley: If you can’t tell by the look on my face, I LOVED this one! It came straight off of my Pinterest board. I adore the whimsical pattern and the fit is just perfect. I’ve already worn it like five times. In this picture, I’m wearing it with the Freida Skinny Jean and my Ballerina Pink Tieks as recommended by the stylist. Verdict: Keep.
5) Freida Skinny Jean by Mavi: I’ve been looking for the perfect skinny jean for quite some time. Post-pregnancy, I only owned one pair of jeans, and that just wasn’t cutting it. I adore my jeans, but they’re bootcut and are a bit troublesome to tuck into boots for fall. These jeans were just perfect. No muffin top. Lots of stretch. And they look great with ballerina flats and boots. I am ready for fall! Verdict: Keep
I would say overall that Fix #3 was a success. I’m so very happy with the items that I kept and they are both very versatile, so they will get a lot of wear. I’m going to keep using Stitch Fix for sure. It’s the perfect shopping solution for me because I’m low on time and have trouble getting out of the house with triplet toddlers. I’ve scheduled my next fix for December 24th. Merry Christmas to me!
