Who’s ready to see what was in the box this month? I’ve got another Stitch Fix Review for you today with some fall fashion.
Did you see me opening this Stitch Fix box on Periscope? I was hopeful when I opened the box, that it was going to be a good one. I’m not generally one for beating around the bush and I’m not planning to today as well. For me, this box was awful! Yep, just straight up awful! I felt like the stylist didn’t even bother to try to get to know me or my preferences or my lifestyle. For goodness sake, I have marked in my profile to never send me scarves. I hate them. Got a scarf. I also have marked down that I rarely wear dresses. Sent me a dress. On top of that the combinations that this stylist suggested that I wear together were just awful to me. They are things I would NEVER wear together. Now, maybe I’m super conservative in what I will wear together, but I didn’t like the combos. All of that being said, the individual pieces that were sent were cute. They just weren’t me and weren’t things that fit my lifestyle or are things I would never wear in the combination my stylist suggested.
So, now that I’ve given you that lovely introduction, let me also tell you that I still like Stitch Fix. I still plan to stay with Stitch Fix…at least for another box or two. If I get another box or two like this, I will stop the service for sure, this one was that bad for me.
Before I get into the meat of this fix, let me just take a second to explain what Stitch Fix is…just in case you haven’t heard of them yet. In my opinion, Stitch Fix (affiliate links throughout this post) is perfect for busy moms (like me) or people who don’t like to shop (like me) or have a fashion addiction and have always secretly wanted their own stylist….Stitch Fix is for you. I also think it is great for helping you find pieces for your wardrobe that you wouldn’t normally even look at in the store. Variety can be a great thing and Stitch Fix helps with that for sure!
You will want to start by signing up for Stitch Fix by clicking here. When you do so, you will fill out a style survey. It will give your stylist ideas of what you like and don’t like as well as your sizing information. Then you need to sign up for your first fix and wait patiently until the box comes. If you are like me, the date of your next fix will be kind of like your due date when you were pregnant….you won’t forget it. At. All.
When your fix is sent, you will be charged a $20 styling fee. Once the box arrives, try on everything in the box within 3 days. I love that I can try things on anytime I want and anytime that is convenient for me.
Select what you plan to keep and what you plan to return. Go online to your Stitch Fix account and check out. Leave your stylist very specific information about what you liked and didn’t like. It will help future fixes get even better. I’ve also found that starting a specific Stitch Fix Pinterest board (like mine here) and ONLY pinning things I would actually wear and that I think would look good on me (versus inspiration and amazing things you like, but would look horrible on) to that board has helped. I leave notes in the pins as to what I like or don’t like in the pin.
As you check out, you will pay for whatever you are keeping. At that time, your $20 styling fee will be deducted from the total cost of the items you are keeping. If you hit the jackpot and you love everything in your box, you will get a 25% discount off everything in the box! Yay!
So, you ready to see what was in the box this month?
First up, I tried on the Pixley Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress.
My stylist suggested that it would look good with this Sammie Plaid Infinity Scarf from Look by M.
She also suggested that I could wear this 41 Hawthorn Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer.
I hate scarves and rarely wear dresses. The dress is black and white while the blazer is Navy blue. The scarf brown. Alright…I’ll try it.
First up, I tried just the dress on. It is a cute dress. I just don’t need more dresses. I’ve bought three already this year and that is more than enough for my wardrobe unless I have another special event. This picture doesn’t show it all that well, but for my taste this dress is also a little bit short.
I decided to add the scarf next. I just feel like scarves totally overwhelm my face.
Then I added the blazer. Can’t you tell from my face and my body language that I totally love it? Not so much.
I did like the dress with the blazer. If I worked in an office, this would be a great outfit (if the dress was just a smidge longer). I don’t work in an office. I work out of my home, car, at Guitar lessons, homeschool co-op, Starbucks and lots of other places. I’m all over the place and on a daily basis, this is not a look that I need.
This is the Mavi Mauli Stitch Detail Knit Top.
Which was to be paired with the Kut from Kloth Sonya Velveteen Slim Straight Leg Pant.
Yep, this might be my crazy face look. I was so not into this box, it was really hard to shoot all the pics for you guys. I was just over it. The pants were OK. I just didn’t love them and I couldn’t see myself wearing them often. They seem like great dressier pants. I need everyday things….which I have told my stylist a lot, but they switch my stylist out every month and I don’t know what gets passed along. I haven’t been able to use the new app because it is only iOS not Android. Do those of you who have the app feel like you get any different attention?
I’m not a fan of black and navy blue together…I sound so stinkin’ picky with this post. My stylist said this blazer would pair will with this outfit. It does look OK, but I do think it looks weird to have long sleeves under the 3/4 length sleeve…again I feel like it sounds so picky. Is anyone with me…or do I need to broaden my fashion horizons?
Now this is where my stylist totally lost me(well that might have been when I put the scarf and blazer on with the dress…but anyway). The two different sleeve colors with black/charcoal, navy blue the scarf that takes over…
This is what I thought of the outfit. I liked the shirt, so I decided to try it with something I liked.
I paired the shirt with a pair of capris from another fix. This I like. The only thing that I think I may end up regretting is that the sleeves are a tiny bit short on my arms(a common problem for me) and I have a feeling as I wear this shirt it is going to drive me nuts how I’m always pulling down on the sleeves.
Then I decided to pair the shirt with my most favorite Stitch Fix item. This fun striped cardigan. Love it! This is something that can keep up with my lifestyle.
So, now you know my family got in on the photo bombing while I was photographing…you ready for when the photo shoot got fun or possibly when I yelled at my kids because I was grumpy with the Stitch Fix box.
First to photo bomb was our dog Ginger.
Then my kids got in on the mix. Pumpkin was not going to leave even by force. 😉 Look at her smiling!
Not to be outdone, Snowflake had to jump in for some of the fun.
I put another photo bomb picture on Instagram as well. So, you can check out more there. 🙂
