My latest Stitch Fix box arrived the same day I arrived home from my latest trip to NYC. It’s been awhile since my last fix (and it was a bit of a flop), so I was excited to see what my stylist chose to send me this time around.
For those unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, it is an online personal styling service. When you sign up, you fill out a detailed profile about your sizing, cost, and style preferences. For $20, your stylist selects 5 items to send to you. If you like them, you can purchase the items. Your $20 styling fee can be applied towards the cost of the items you buy. You can keep all, none, or some of the items (if you purchase all 5 items, you get 25% off your order). You don’t have to commit to a monthly subscription — you can schedule one-off boxes whenever you feel like it! I have also found that curating my style Pinterest board has really helped guide my stylists towards what I like.
For this fix, I asked my stylist for new denim and dresses for fall. I mentioned I am traveling a lot over the next couple months so versatility is a must. I included a note that if any sweaters are sent, they should NOT contain wool, and I also specifically requested no shoes.
Here’s what was in the box:
RD Style Jana Poncho Pullover
Despite indicating on my StitchFix profile that I am allergic to wool, past stylists have sent me wool. Maybe they don’t know that cashmere is still wool? I digress. Anyway, the stylist for this fix did a good job picking out this sweater with zero wool content. However, I am a bit torn on the style of this dark grey poncho sweater. Does it hide my shape too much? I’m also not sure if I like the open sides, but I see how it could be comfy and cozy for traveling. Corner really likes it, so I’m going to keep it and give it a shot. Verdict: Keep
Berry Jewelry Piper Double Disc Pendant
I always forget to take close-up pictures whenever jewelry is included in my fix, so you should be impressed that I remembered to take this one. I recently updated my style profile to indicate that I wear mostly silver-toned jewelry so I’m happy to see that my stylist acknowledged this new preference. This necklace is nothing special but I see how you could pair it with a lot of outfits. For the pricepoint I am pretty “meh” about it but since I’m keeping so many other items from this fix the necklace will not really cost me anything extra, so I’m going to keep it. Verdict: Keep
41Hawthorn Gideon Polka Dot Sweater
Again, my stylist managed to successfully avoid sending me wool. This 100% cotton sweater is awesome. I dig the polka dots and the extra length. It’s soft and I can see myself reaching for it a lot this fall! Verdict: Keep
Skies are Blue Bryleigh Faux Suede Detail Dress
Definitely the WTF item of this fix. I am not a big fan of elastic waistbands, and the faux suede portion of this dress is strange. I do like the fabric (it’s nice and soft!) and the way the sleeves roll up. I’m not digging the embroidered detailing around the neckline. I also have a feeling the neckline won’t lay right for very long. Worst of all, I found that the dress rides up if I bend over at all. This one would have gone straight back to StitchFix had I not found a buyer on a StitchFix Facebook group. Verdict: Sold
Edyson Soho Skinny Jean
StitchFix has never sent me a pair of pants I didn’t like, and these jeans are no exception. I love the fit and the wash. The fabric of these is soft and a bit velvet-y; I’m sure it will attract Nigel hair but nothing a good lint rolling can’t fix. Since I needed to add another pair of skinny jeans to my fall wardrobe anyway, I will definitely be keeping these. Verdict: Keep
Sold to Others: 1
My stylist did a great job with the sweaters she picked out for me even though I didn’t specifically request any. Hooray for listening to my notes and not sending any wool! I am determined to get a 5/5 fix one of these days (without needing to sell the item or items I don’t like!).
