Stitch Fix Unboxing & Try-on: January 2017
Well, it’s been a hot second since I got myself a Stitch Fix, but since I always get so bummed after Christmas (because no more Christmas music) I decided I would treat myself to a fix this month. I think the last fix I got was in August and I didn’t even blog about it. The last fix I think I shared was back in March of last year, and that was my best fix to date! This one was…not my favorite, but it was fun to get a package in the mail and to see all the things my stylist picked out!
In case you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix, it’s a pretty fun clothing subscription service. You fill out a style profile and link up a Pinterest board to clothes you like. You pay a $20 dollar styling fee and can write a note with any special requests for specific clothing you may be looking for. A stylist picks out 5 items of clothing and accessories and sends them to you! You have 3 days to try them on in the comfort of your home and then you 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!
Since I just got my stunning leather jacket a couple weeks ago, I specially requested my stylist to send me tops I could wear with it. I also was SUPER jealous of Jenn’s clutch that she got in one of her recent fixes, so I requested that, as well.
As a note – my stylist left me such a sweet note. She felt bad that she couldn’t send me some of the things I was looking for due to them not having them at headquarters currently, but mentioned that she loved my blog! How sweet! So, I totally appreciated that from her, and will definitely request her when I decide to get another fix.
Stitch Fix Unboxing & Try-On:
Palermo Stitch Detail Clutch – $38.00 – My stylist didn’t have the same clutch that Jenn got in her fix, but sent me this one instead. I REALLY love that this is is a bag and not a clutch and that the chain strap makes the bag fancier and edgier all at once. The color is super unique and I’m a fan of the woven details and tassel. I think this will pair really well with my new moto jacket, especially when I am dressing it up! I’m leaning towards keeping this!
Caelan Lace Back Detail Top – $64.00 – This is probably my least favorite item in the fix – I’m not a huge flannel person to begin with and the proportions seemed off on my body. It just fell shorter on my torso and I felt like the sleeves were baggier…I dunno, the fit overall was just #badnewsbears. I did like the pretty lace detail in the back, but overall, this is definitely going back, especially at that price.
Ellisen Cross Front Knit Top – $44.00 – This was the top I was most excited about, and even though I’m still undecided about it, I think I’m going to return it. I love the style and the color of this top, and it was super soft! Plus, I could see how it would pair well with my moto jacket. But, as you can see from the pictures, this top is a bit see-through when actually on my body. Also, it seemed a little short on my torso again. So, sadly, I’m going to be sending this back.
Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt – $64.00 – Okay, I’m torn on this, too. At first, I was pretty bummed out about it because it seemed pretty bland. But, I liked it a lot more after I put it on, and I can see it looking really great under my leather jacket. It is a bit more on the pricier side, but I can see me wearing this a lot for the rest of winter and into spring. Thoughts?
Joella Pleater Mixed Material Pullover – $68.00 – So, the concept of this top is SO cute, but this was WAY too small for my chest and torso. The bust line came across the middle of my bra, so it was really tight across my chest. And the sweater part was so short on my torso (I’m sensing a trend) and the sleeves were not long enough on my arms at all. Ugh. Back it goes.
Okay, so, like I said, not my best fix, but I think there was some potential. I still haven’t sent anything back, so I’d love to know your opinions. Should I keep the sweatshirt? The clutch? HALP!
