Time for another Stitch Fix! This month’s fix was a bit disappointing, but it was more sizing issues than style. To my stylist’s credit, she did try to give me certain pieces I requested.

Without further ado, here’s this month’s Stitch Fix (<–referral link):
(Had to get the tree in there — makes it so much more festive! 🙂
Burgundy Cropped Pant. I requested skinny jeans in a darker color that wasn’t blue. This is what was sent. I wasn’t a huge fan of the cropped look (what shoes do I wear in the winter??! I am not a fashionista here — see the pictures in this post for proof! Haha); but the final decision was made due to the fit of these pants. They don’t look like it in the pictures, but they were just too big. Return.
Jean Jacket. I had requested a jean jacket as well — however, I think I should have been more specific. This jacket was made with some spandex in it, making it oddly stretchy? It was very light “jean” and I prefer dark. I also didn’t like the length. I’ve never been a huge fan of how I look wearing jean jackets anyways, and this confirmed it…Return.
Short Sleeve Lace Dress. I requested a long sleeve lace dress for a December wedding. She didn’t have a long sleeve lace dress so she sent this one. I actually liked it on much more than I did when I took it out of the box, but it was still roomy in the waist area. I couldn’t tell if it looked sophisticated or too “young.” Plus it was quite expensive for something I wouldn’t wear too often and didn’t love. Return.
Black Lace Skirt and Colbalt Blue Blouse. Since the long sleeve lace dress was a no-go; this was another option my stylist sent for the wedding along with the lace dress pictured above. I instantly loved this skirt (a lot a lot a lot) and the color of the shirt was beautiful! However, combined, it seemed a bit too “office/work” wear to me than fun winter wedding wear. So I switched the shirt out for a red top and red heels I already had….and loved it for the wedding!
So I decided (happily) to keep the skirt…and with much deliberation, returned the shirt. I liked it, but it was $58, which is way too much to pay for something I would only wear for more special occasions, definitely not everyday wear.
Overall – not the best fix I’ve had since I’ve started this service. I really do love the skirt I kept though, and I didn’t lose my styling fee (which if you read my prior reviews is what I really care about…). I haven’t scheduled my next fix yet, but probably will wait a little while to evaluate what I really need to add to my closet…especially with Christmas coming up.
Have you done Stitch Fix before? Another styling service? If you could buy one piece of clothing for your closet today, what would it be?
