Perhaps with all of the Christmas shopping going on December isn’t the best time to schedule a Stitch Fix, but I did need some new winter clothes so I was glad it came! I had requested long sleeve tops and dresses this time that would be appropriate enough for work but also comfortable enough for my new hands-on job.
For every fix I’ve always had Julie as my stylist (except for one when she was on maternity leave) and she is the best! I’m so lucky to have her. She wrote the sweetest note this month, saying how excited she gets when she sees my name pop up and how she looks forward to styling me! And as usual, she did a great job.
Gilli Trista Faux Wrap Jersey Dress – $68
This is the item I was most on the fence about. I liked how the dress looked on. But I didn’t LOVE it. And for $68 around Christmas time when spending is particularly high, I knew it needed to be something I loved. The pattern was pretty but I feel like there are other pretty dresses for me down the line. I think it photographed better than it looked in real life too, which sometimes happens with these stitch fix items. Returned.
Le Lis Ertah Crochet Sleeve Knit Top – $54
The first thing I noticed about this out of the box was the color, which I loved. Orange is my favorite color and I love all shades of it, from a peachy coral to burnt orange. When I first saw it I was afraid it was too boring but then I saw the sleeves, which I loved! It fit well so I kept this one. I actually wore it to work yesterday and got several compliments on it already!
Pixley Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan – $48
This was cute. I love the “slub style” of these types of cardigans. It was just plain black which is an important staple, but I already have two black cardigans. At this point I don’t really need another so I ended up sending this one back.
Pixley Greenich Striped Knit Top – $48
So there were a couple of things I liked about this one. I do like the stripes and the colors. I already really liked the fact that it was a longer top because I’ve been looking for more of those. It works well for casual wear or work. The one thing holding me back a little was the elbow patches. I’m not sure how I feel about those. But Jason really liked this top so that and the fact that I really need more long sleeve tops sold me on keeping it!
Pixley Dexter Faux Wrap Dress – $68
This dress was really similar in style to the other dress, as they were both wrap dresses. However, I didn’t like how this one fit as much. The material was thicker on this one and seemed to accentuate more of my lumpy places in a way I didn’t like, haha. The pattern was all right but if I had kept a dress this time around it definitely would have been the other one, so I sent this back.
If you’re interested in signing up for your own Fix, I would love it if you’d use my referral link – it would give me a $25 credit to use on a future fix, and doesn’t cost you anything. I used a friend’s link when I signed up for mine so I could help her out, so I know it’s much appreciated!
