Fall 2018 Stitch Fix Unboxing & Try-on
Maybe it’s because fall clothes are the best clothes or because it’s easier to say yes to comfy and cozy pieces, but every year when my Fall Stitch Fix comes, it’s always the best of the year. Last year was no exception and if funds had been available to me, I would have purchased every single piece. This year’s fall Fix JUST as amazing and my stylist hit the ball out of the park. This was the best fix I’ve received all year (and I’ve been receiving them every 2-3 weeks because I’m on an unlimited fix plan.) All of the pieces were flattering, my style, and perfect to wear as the seasons’ transition.
Before we jump into the unboxing and try-on, here’s a brief rundown on how StitchFix works. StitchFix is a clothing subscription service, where you have a personal stylist that sends you 5 items of clothing and accessories to try on in the comfort of your own home. You pay a $20 dollar styling fee and can write a note with any special requests for specific clothing you may be looking for. You can mail back whatever you don’t like in a prepaid envelope and keep what you do like! The $20 dollar styling fee goes towards anything you want to keep and if you keep all 5 pieces, you receive a 25% off discount of the total of the clothes.
StitchFix has always been fun for me to get because I love having clothing sent to me that I might normally not pick out for myself. My stylist always gives me something to push me a little bit outside of my comfort zone and it’s fun to mix and match pieces with what I already have in my closet to see how I could style them. Stitch Fix prices do tend to be on the higher side, but the quality (for the most part) is decent. Some things are definitely not worth the price, but there are some good finds if you keep up with them!
Fall 2018 Stitch Fix Unboxing & Try-on
p.s. please excuse my dirty mirror. That Doodle Toodle of mine loves to press his nose into the mirror when he catches his reflection.
Zayit Mixed Material Zip Back Detail Top – I have such a weak spot for cobalt blue – it’s my favorite shade of blue to wear and I love how bold and vibrant it is. I am usually not a fan of the nylon material that the front of this shirt is made out of because it wrinkles easily, but after wearing this for a couple hours, it held up decently. I think this is a really great transitional top because cobalt looks bomb with white jeans and also looks bomb with dark wash jeans. Kept.
Julianne Tie Front Cuffed Sleeve Blouse – I made an audible sound of joy when I pulled this out of the box – I LOVE the plaid pattern and colors, and the front tie detail is super on-trend. It’s super flattering because it cinches in at the waist. This top looks good with a skirt and with high waisted jeans, so it’s also super versatile. And really, I just like that it’s a super dressy version of plaid, so I can wear it to work without feeling too casual. Kept.
Alyvia Color Blog Cardigan – Okay, first of all, I love color blocking and I love that the lines in this cardigan are angled, which make it more flattering on the body. Second of all, this is SUPER soft and felt high quality. And third of all, it’s literally what fall layering dreams are made out of. This was a no-brainer for me – I was keeping it. Kept
Tonie Lace Inset Pullover – I literally gasped when I saw this sweater. I mean, THOSE DETAILS! The lace detail in the bottom of the sweater? The zipper on the side? The lace detail on the collar? Holy smokes – this is the cutest, most feminine sweater I’ve ever laid eyes on. It’s also a light-weight sweater, which means it’s perfect for September (it’s going to pair so well with maroon jeans or leggings) but it will also be perfect for Spring! I haven’t seen a sweater like this one ever, so I knew I had to keep it. Kept
Merle Faux Suede Perforated Bootie – Do I even need to say anything about these? The color is so pretty (almost a navy, but not quite) and not a color I have in my shoe collection at all. Also, I don’t have any pair of shoes with the perforated detail on them and I love how perfect that makes these for this transitional season time. The heel isn’t too high, which means I can walk in them on my knee replacement and not be in any unnecessary discomfort or pain. Plus, these look so good with colored jeans, regular jeans, and skirts. Kept.
That’s right, friend. I kept the WHOLE fix. This is the first time, in 28 fixes, that I kept the whole fix. I just loved every piece so much and they all felt unique to my closet and I knew I would get a lot of wear out of them throughout the season. Because I kept all 5 pieces, I got the 25% discount and my total came to $204.00. So yes, still a little expensive for 5 pieces, but considering there was a high quality pair of booties and some pieces I would layer with multiple times a week, I felt like it was still a good use of my money.
