Stitch Fix Review #4

Stitch Fix Review #4

Stitch Fix did it again with a box of clothes that were just what I wanted! This time I asked for pieces that would help me transition from summer to fall. Tucson's weather will continue to feel like summer for quite some time, but I knew I'd be tired of the tank tops, shorts, and flip flops that we seem to wear for so many months here. I was nervous when I read the initial note on my style card that explained that the stylist I'd had for my previous fixes had left, and someone new had done this one, but Carli did a great job of fulfilling my requests. Not familiar with Stitch Fix? Read more here!

First up was the Pixley Harriet Chevron Print Detail Dress, a comfortable, lightweight, and flattering dress that can definitely be dressed up or down. I love the slightly high waistline and a-line cut that is flattering without being too flared. This is cute with heels and jewelry for a dressy night out, or with sandals for a casual look. It's perfectly comfortable in the Tucson heat but can also be worn in cooler weather with a cardigan or jacket. 

Next was the Pixley Edmond Chevron Print Henley Shirt - I had pinned this shirt in a different color on my Pinterest style board, and my stylist mentioned that in her notes. This is a simple, cotton top that is very comfortable. I think it looks better for casual wear, although my style card included an option pairing it with a pencil skirt and boots. 

My favorite item in this fix was the Kut From the Kloth Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jean, shown in the photo above with the Pixley top. Jeans are so tricky for me, and this is the second time I've requested a specific fit and the second time Stitch Fix has nailed it - I don't have nearly that good of a track record when combing the mall for hours looking for new jeans. I'll take this approach over that torture any day. Several of my previous Stitch Fix style cards included boyfriend jeans with the outfits, and I didn't have any of my own that quite had that look. I saw JoAnn mention receiving boyfriend jeans in this Stitch Fix review and liked them. I wanted some that were comfortable and that I'd be able to wear in a lot of different ways. I absolutely love these - they may be my favorite item in all of my fixes to date. I've already worn these tons - they've become my weekend uniform. 

My jewelry piece in this fix was Jill Michael Montgomery Beaded Hoop Earrings, in the matte gold finish that I love. These are simple and pretty and I will get plenty of use out of them.

The piece that I was a little on the fence about in this fix was the 41Hawthron Bryan Short-Sleeve Open-Front Cardigan. It's white and simple in a t-shirt material. This item makes sense as a fall transition piece for the weather in Tucson, as it adds a lightweight layer. With it being white, it will match plenty of things. It was just not terribly exciting, but with the 5-item discount (you get 25% off your entire purchase if you keep all five pieces in a Stitch Fix) it paid to keep it rather than send it back. One note - my stylist mentioned I could pair this with the chevron dress, but this bright white cardi and the slightly off-white chevron stripe on the dress didn't match - oh well! I think it will work better with some casual jeans or shorts.

I'm happy that Stitch Fix has continued to be a great source of new clothes and accessories for me, and the items that I receive have become some of my favorites. It's really helped me to get out of my style rut, and I highly recommend trying it out - you can use my referral link here and you'll get a code of your own to share with friends for credit! And if you like any of these pieces, you can specifically request them in your style profile. Check out my other Stitch Fix Reviews for even more information.

I'll receive my next Fix in November. I requested a cute but comfortable top to wear to our casual family Thanksgiving gathering, and something a little dressier to wear to holiday parties. Can't wait to see what they come up with!

Stitch Fix Review #2

My second Stitch Fix was another success overall. My only specific request was for a pair of dark jeans that I could dress up or down. I don't know what it is, but jeans fall right after swimwear on my list of Things I Dread Shopping For, so I thought maybe my stylist could help - and she did! She sent these Kensie Skinny Jeans in a  nice dark blue (they look black in the photo, but they're not). They're made of a great soft stretchy denim, so even though they looked super skinny to start, they're comfortable and a good, flattering fit. She gave me some cute options for them on my style card. 

 

Next up was the 41Hawthorn Bell Solid Sleeveless Tie-Neck Blouse. In a soft cream shade and drapey material, this should have been right up my alley, but the tie-neck threw me off at first. It conjured images of 1980s elementary school teachers for some reason, but once I tried it on, I really liked it. The drape was flattering and comfortable and the tie was thin enough that I decided it was just a nice detail, and pretty on-trend right now. This is another good example of how Stitch Fix helps me find items I wouldn't have chosen for myself. See the blouse here with the Bay to Baubles Raelynn Knot Cluster Necklace. I liked the gold knots on the necklace, but the middle seemed to stick out a bit, and since I thought it was a little pricey I decided to send it back. The upside is that I was inspired to find a similar necklace, and I happily discovered one elsewhere that was similar but a little more subtle.

I received two dresses in this fix. The Sanctuary Felicity Colorblock Ponte Dress was almost right. I loved the style and fabric and was impressed that my stylist referenced a similar dress on my Pinterest style board (they actually look!). However - I am a 30-something mom of two with an active lifestyle, and this super mini short cut was just not practical for me. Because sometimes I need to sit down. Boo.

Finally, I received the 41Hawthorn Lori Lace Fit & Flare Dress. I love the lace details and lavender color, and this was a fun find because I had seen a peek of this very dress in a photo Stitch Fix had posted on their Instagram account, so it was neat to see it show up in my box! This seems a little on the dressy side for me, but I'm happy to have it on hand when a pretty, summery dress is called for.

Overall, I was pleased with this Stitch Fix and was excited to schedule my next one.
