November Stitchfix Review

Previous Stitchfix Reviews:  1 // // // // // 6

This was my 10th Stitchfix, and again, I was so excited to see what I got! I had requested a couple of items that I had seen on Stitchfix’s Pinterest and Instagram, and I was so glad to see those items in my box!

So here is what I got, what I kept, and what I sent back:

KUT from the kloth cinda faux leather moto jacket // Medium // $98

I had requested a leather jacket as I have been on the hunt this season to find one.  I was SO excited to see one in my box and it looked so cute.  But once I put it on, I wasn’t totally sold.  I didn’t like the dark brown color— I’m really hoping to find one in cognac or gray.  Plus the arms were a little too long (yay for being vertically challenged— NOT).  And I’m not spending $98 on an item I don’t LOVE. So it went back. Kind of regretting that decision now that I look at these pictures again.

41Hawthorn Filbert 3/4 sleeve popover blouse // Medium // $58

I really debated on keeping this top as it fit VERY well, but I’m kinda finicky about sleeves, especially this time of year.  I’m so cold-natured that once it drops below 70 degrees, I need long sleeves.  I didn’t see myself getting to wear this much until next spring.  I sent it back.

Emperia clarita messenger bag // $58

This was another item I had requested.  I think I saw it on Stitchfix’s Instagram and thought I would love to have it as a camera bag.  I was SO SO SO excited to see it in my box!  I was surprised that it was smaller than I imagined but yet it’s still very roomy.  I actually I am glad it’s smaller than I thought— I can carry it as my purse with all my normal stuff (wallet, phone, etc.) and my camera too so I don’t have to have two separate bags.  It was a no-brainer– I kept it!

In case you are wondering what I’m staring at, this was kind of a “blooper” shot but I liked it lol

Daniel RAinn minal heart print henley blouse // medium // $68

When I saw this in the box, I absolutely loved it! My sister has a similar top from Gap or something and I have been eyeing it ever since she bought it.  But once I put it on, I did not care for it.  It was too loose and flowy for my taste. Maybe if it had been a small instead of a medium, it might have have fit better. I sent it back.

gilli kamile jersey ruched detail dress // medium // $64

I was iffy about this dress from the minute I saw it in the box.  It looked really small and I wasn’t sure it would even go on.  But it did fit, and I was surprised to find it fit ok.  However, I did the empire waist thing for so many years as a way to mask my constantly flunctuating weight that I think I am a little over that style right now.  So I sent it back.

I only kept one item, the messenger bag, this fix, but I still loved getting my box and trying everything on!  And as long as I keep at least one item, the $20 shipping fee gets credited to whatever I purchase, so I’m not losing any money.

So what did you think of my pieces?  Have you tried Stitchfix yet?  If you haven’t, I would LOVE it if you used my referral link so I can get a credit on my next fix!

October Stitchfix Review

Previous Stitchfix Reviews: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5

This was my 9th Stitchfix and I have yet to be disappointed! If you are trying to figure out the difference in the previous reviews and how many boxes I’ve gotten, that’s because I was a slacker a couple of times and didn’t get reviews done. I get so excited every month when the email comes through that my box was shipped!

This month, I specifically requested a couple of dresses that I could potentially wear to a wedding at the end of the month.  I also a requested a clutch that I could possibly use as well.  I love that you have the option to include notes to your stylist about specific needs each month.

So here is what I got, what I kept, and what I sent back:

RD Style Akio Asymmetrical Zip Faux Leather Jacket– $108

DSC_0376
I loved this when I saw it in my box (especially because it was grey and not black).  But once I put it on, I wasn’t thrilled.  It was too tight in the chest so I wouldn’t be able to comfortably zip it, but the arms were way too big.  Plus it wasn’t worth the $108 price tag for something I wouldn’t wear a ton.  So it went back.

41Hawthorn Faya Sleeveless Keyhole Fit & Flare Dress– $88

DSC_0347
I really liked this dress when I saw it in the box.  It is not a color I would normally gravitate towards.  But when I put it on, it didn’t fit quite right in the waist.  Not sure if it was the pleating or what, but it didn’t lay very well.  If it had been cheaper, I might have considered keeping it for a nice date night.  But I didn’t think it was quite what I wanted for the wedding and the price tag was a little too steep for me, so I sent it back.

Pixley Page Chain Collar Necklace– $36

DSC_0386
Honestly, I didn’t care for this necklace at all.  I pretty much knew as soon as I saw it that I wouldn’t be keeping it unless everything else in the box fit (since then I would get a discount for buying the whole box).  It just wasn’t my style, so it went back too.

Pixley Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress– $68

DSC_0352
When I saw this in the box, I loved it! But I was a little skeptical on whether it would fit right.  The style/cut isn’t normally something I would choose, but I loved the color and pattern, so of course I tried it on.  And I LOVED it.  And my husband loved it.  He pretty much insisted I keep it, so I did!  I don’t think it’s dressy enough for the wedding I am attending, but it will be a very good piece that I can wear for numerous other occasions.

Urban Expressions Adelade Woven Fold-Over Clutch– $48

DSC_0369
This clutch was SO cute! I love the fold-over style and really wanted to keep it, but I just couldn’t spend $48 on a clutch I’d use on rare occasions.  I sent it back, but I am probably going to regret that decision.

So what did you think of my pieces?  Have you tried Stitchfix yet?  If you haven’t, I would LOVE it if you used my referral link so I can get a credit on my next fix!

August Stitchfix Review

I have been getting Stitchfix for several months now, but somehow I never seem to get pictures done in time before I have to send back the items I didn’t keep. I like taking pictures of myself in the clothes so you can see how they fit, but somehow I never get them done.

This time however, I did at least get pictures of the items, even if I am not wearing them (taking pictures of yourself takes WWWAAAAYYYY longer… unless you are super photogenic, which I am not).  I’m going to try to do better next time, I promise!

Anywho, here’s what came in my box! I’ve noted what I kept and what I sent back.

Mystree Hannah Striped Lace Detail Fit & Flare Dress (Medium)– $68

DSC_0573 As soon as I saw this dress, I thought it was adorable and completely my style, but my first thought was “I hope it fits.” Dresses from Stitchfix have been very hit-or-miss for me and often don’t fit. Unfortunately, this one was the same. I couldn’t even get it zipped all the way.

I was so disappointed because it was so soft and comfortable. Plus navy stripes are pretty much a staple in my closet. But I sent it back since it didn’t fit. I did go on Stitchfix and update my sizing a little for my next box, so I think the dress sizing issue will be rectified for the next go-around.

 

Mak Jaclynn 3/4 Sleeve Button-Up Cardigan (Medium)– $38

DSC_0577 This cardigan was SO incredibly soft and I loved the bright color. It would’ve looked super cute with the dress, but I had one issue with it: the 3/4 sleeves. I wear cardigans all year long no matter what the temperature outside. If I am going to be inside, I usually have a cardigan with me because I inevitably will be cold. So since I wear them primarily for warmth, I want long sleeves. Plus this cardigan didn’t quite fit (it was bulging slightly when I tried to button it (thanks, boobs.) so it went back.

 

Liverpool Janice Straight Leg Jean (Size 8)– $78

DSC_0584 Honestly, I didn’t care for these before I even tried them on. I already have a pair of super dark wash jeans, so I really don’t need another pair, plus I didn’t care for the cuffs. The fit was off on them too. I’m not exactly sure how to describe it but they seemed too boxy and they made me look short (which I do not need any help with as I am already pretty short). I think it was just where the cuff hit my leg, but they were not flattering. So these went back too.

 

Pixley Farris Faceted Stone Statement Necklace– $38

DSC_0569 This is one item I deeply regret sending back! I don’t wear necklaces very often, so I couldn’t bring myself to spend almost $40 on something I wouldn’t wear much. However, there have been several days over the last two weeks that I have thought, “Dang, that necklace would look so cute with this outfit.” Big, big regret on that one.

 

Renee C Macklin Leopard Print V-neck Blouse (Medium)— $38

DSC_0561 When I first saw this top in my box, I wasn’t too sure about the print. It was a little busy and colorful for my usual taste. But once I put it on, I knew I was keeping it! It is so flattering! I love that it has the waterfall hemline so it’s slightly longer in the back than in the front. And it easily transitions from work to a fun night out as you can see below (sorry for the low quality– these are ones I took with my phone and posted on Instagram but I forgot to take a couple with my good camera). I also like that this top can easily be worn all year by adding a cardigan or jacket.

Because Stitchfix credits your $20 styling fee to anything you keep, I only paid $18 for the Leopard top!

So what did you think of my Fix? Have you tried it yet? If you are thinking about signing up, I would love it if you used my referral link. This is not a sponsored post but if you use the referral link, I do get a credit on my next fix and who doesn’t love a little extra discount?!
