I think my Stitch Fix posts are some of my favorite posts to share! Maybe it’s because they’re some of my favorite to read, but I really do have fun putting them together…and, of course, receiving them.
Something very interesting happened with my fix this month, which I honestly didn’t realize until I went to type up this post. As it turns out, after seeing the pictures of them, I started questioning some of the items I decided to return – and I just mailed them back yesterday. Go figure?!
For this fix, I left a note for my stylist to try and include any/all of the following: a chunky open cardigan, bootcut dark-wash jeans, black dress pants, a plaid top, and a new top I could wear for work. And here’s what they sent!
Just Black Serena Flare Jean – $88.00
These jeans were basically everything that I asked for…but I didn’t keep them. They were just a teeeeny bit too snug, and they weren’t very comfortable with the sit-down test. I’m sure they would have stretched a bit, but I couldn’t bank on it so, return.
Laila Jayde Salderas Hooded Cardigan – $64.00
I really need to start taking better pics for my Stitch Fix posts because my iPhone definitely doesn’t do this sweater’s color justice. It’s a beautiful, deep purple, which I loved – something different from my usual go-to’s of black/white/gray. I like how it’s long and cozy but the back is a normal length. I love the extra hood detail, and as an extra bonus, the sleeves are nice and long.
This one was a keeper!
RD Style Analisa Twisted Seam Mixed Knit Sweater – $68.00
Okay, so when I tried this sweater on in person, I just wasn’t feelin’ it. It was boxy and I didn’t totally love how it was shorter in the front (chunky sweaters should be long and cozy, with long sleeves, in my opinion). I really love the idea of this sweater (the color block, the actual colors), and now that I’m looking at pics, it doesn’t really seem that bad?! But for the price, I’d need to make sure I really did love it, so it was return.
Pixley Kindley Henley Blouse – $68.00
When I asked for a plaid top in my fix, I guess I should have clarified that I was looking for a flannel, plaid top. Since they didn’t send flannel, I guess I was a little disappointed after seeing it out of the box, and I’m wondering now if that masked my true opinion of the shirt. Because now I’m looking at it and thinking, ok, it’s pretty cute! But too bad for me, I already returned it. Darn it!
Loveappella Berni Lace Detail Knit Top – $54.00
I immediately loved this top right out of the box for it’s bright blue color and beautiful lace detailing. The fabric is super soft and stretchy, and it’s absolutely a top I could dress up for work or dress down with jeans. The price is a bit more than I’d spend if I were shopping, say, at Target, but I had some credits left on my account so I justified the price.
Whether or not it should be work with a strapless bra or not (because of the lace details) I have no idea, but I don’t do strapless bras (noooo thanks), so I’ll be sporting it with straps.
And since you already saw me wear this yesterday, you know it was a keeper!
So there’s the October fix! Two keepers, three returns.
So what do you guys think?! Have you tried Stitch Fix lately?
