I have now had TWENTY Stitch Fixes! I think at least half of my closet is Stitch Fix items, and I really do still love it. One of the things in my life that I struggle with the most right now is time, and I just don’t have a lot of time to go into stores and sort through everything to find something I like, try it all on, and end up keeping one item. Stitch Fix is perfect for me because I have someone else picking stuff out to suit my style and I can try it on whenever I get the chance at home, then drop anything I don’t like in the mailbox. I’ve tried to do some other online shopping and while the prices are often cheaper, it’s much more of a hassle to return things (having to print shipping labels, not being able to return something if it was on sale, etc.).
If you’re not familiar, Stitch Fix is a subscription box service that has you fill out a style profile survey, and then they send you 5 clothing items to try on – you decide what to keep and what to send back!
Julie has been my stylist for every single one of my fixes since the beginning (with one exception when she was out on maternity leave). She knows my style really well. Last fix I mentioned to her that I just don’t find dresses with an elastic waistband to be something that works for me, so this month she sent me 2 dresses without an elastic waist. I also forgot to write a specific note for this fix, but she managed to totally nail it this time anyway!
Le Lis Kenley Knit Dress – $68
I wear dresses and skirts much more often than pants. I don’t like pants. But it’s harder to find good dresses for the fall and winter, as the temperatures get cooler. This one is a nice, thick material, and has 3/4 length sleeves. It will be great for later in the fall (we’ve still been having great weather lately, thank goodness!), and with a cardigan and leggings it will work through the winter. It’s a simple pattern but I like it. I do have a lot of polka dots now. I would love to see a long sleeved dress in brighter colors, because most of the ones I have are black, navy, or gray. It might be dreary outside but I’d still like to be colorful sometimes! I kept this one.
Wisp Leeah Lace Knit Dress – $68
My husband and I don’t always agree on what we like from each Stitch Fix, but for this fix the best item in the box was unanimous. We both loved this dress. It’s one that I can wear casually, or dress up a bit for special occasions. I love the style and fit and I think this is much more flattering on me than those elastic waist dresses I was getting. The color is called “sangria” and I completely love it. Obviously, this one was a keeper.
Threads 4 Thought Astra Knit Sweatshirt – $50
I saw this and I thought to myself, “A $50 sweatshirt? No way.” And honestly, I still don’t think I would pay this much money for a sweatshirt, ever. It’s a pretty color and it was really soft and warm on the inside. And it has thumb holes, which I always like. But it’s just too average to be worth it. Now, I did end up keeping this, because (spoiler alert) I kept my whole fix. If you keep all 5 items you get a 25% off discount, so it actually ending up being cheaper to just keep this to get the discount.
Metro Wear Karmin Scuba Skirt – $34
Perfect price point on this item. The colors are really pretty and great for fall, and I love this style of skirt. It didn’t wow me or blow me away, but since I liked other items in the box and this one wasn’t too much, it made more sense to keep it. It’s definitely something I will wear and get use out of.
Pink Clover Marissa Lace Up Back Pullover – $50
From the front this sweater looks pretty basic. It’s a different color than I usually have in my wardrobe, so that’s nice to switch it up. It’s thick, which will be perfect for winter when the library is freezing, and looks to be of high quality. A good, non-itchy sweater can be hard to find, so I was already pleased with this item. But then it has a super fun detail on the back! These things combined made this one another keeper for me.
Last month I only kept one item… but I made up for it this month by keeping all of them! Julie did a great job. So great that I spent more money than I usually budget for clothes, which unfortunately means I’ve pushed my next fix back until mid-January! I figure after the holidays are over I’ll be in a better place to think about spending money on my wardrobe again.
