October Stitch Fix Review
If you’ve been around here for a while, you know that I have an unhealthy obsession with getting mail. I love it, so much. Of course, the subscription box services do not help my obsession with getting mail. But hey, since I’m all about embracing life and trying to get the most out of it that I can, I figured that there is nothing wrong with me trying out all the mail subscriptions boxes out there. It’s the little things, like getting mail, that remind me to find joy in my day and to remember to never take the simplest things for granted. Plus, as a #girlboss, I think it’s important for me to take myself seriously and actually get ready and dress up for the day, even if I’m working from home.
Anyway. Stitch Fix. October Box. It came on Monday and I was so excited, because it had been a couple months since I got one. I requested fall themed pieces and things that would layer nicely. I also requested a vest, but they must not have had any in my size at the time.
If you haven’t hear of Stitch Fix, it’s super simple. You fill out a style profile online, link a pinterest board to clothes you like and pay 20 dollars for a stylist to pick out 5 items for you. It gets mailed to your door and you have 3 days to try it on and figure out what you like. Then, you put everything you don’t want in the prepaid envelope and mail it back. And your 20 dollar stylist fee goes towards anything you do want to keep. It’s a fun way to skip out on the hours of shopping, to have new things to try on that you might have ignored on your own and to have someone else style you!
I haven’t had the best of luck with my fixes, but I had high hopes for this one. Here’s how it all turned out.
Rosa Tab Sleeve V-Neck Blouse
I was so excited about the color of this top when I pulled it out; I’ve been ALL about the Olive Green this fall, especially with my red hair. But when I put it on, the fit of it was SO unflattering. There is this weird pleat right in the center of the chest, so whenever I move my arms around, the shirt bunches up all over the place. So awkward. So not meant for girls like me with big busts. So Returned.
Moni Geo Print & Cami
I actually liked the color of this tip and the detailing around the neck line, but this top just isn’t really my style. It was Dustin’s favorite; he wanted me to keep it so badly! Returned.
Lizzy Colorblock Striped Sweater
YES! I was so excited when I pulled this out of the box because it was so soft and comfty looking! I get nervous about verticle stripes because it can make me look wider than I am, but because these stripes are narrow, I think it looks okay! Definitely a keeper. Kept.
Simmons Bootcut Jean
I was a little perplexed when I realized that my stylist had sent me these very 70 type bootcut jeans; I’m normally a skinny jeans/leggings girl. I figured I would give them a try. I recently have lost about 8 pounds, so these were a little too big and baggy on me, so they went back. Returned
Nima Carved Teardrop Chandelier Earrings
These were okay, they didn’t blow my socks off so I didn’t keep them or even take a picture of them. oops. Returned.
So, once again I only had one keeper from the fix, but I do feel like this fix wasn’t a huge fail. I do LOVE the sweater I got and I can’t wait for it to get a teeny bit cooler here in AZ so I can wear it (come on 60 degree weather, I know you’re coming). I’m going to schedule another fix for December and see how it goes. In the mean time, I’m planning on trying a few other types of clothing subscription boxes in November and seeing if any compare!
Do you use Stitch Fix? Which piece was your favorite from my fix?
Update: After checking out online for my sweater, I realized that there was a big run/pull in the back of it! I have emailed customer service to see if they will refund me. I will report back soon!
