Stitch Fix #15

Usually I jump right into the items I received, but just in case you’re new to my blog, or haven’t heard of Stitch Fix yet- I want to give a quick overview of what it is and how it works.

In a nutshell, Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service for women that mails a lovely box of clothes to your doorstep every month (or however often you’d like)

Here’s how it works:

  1. Create an account & fill out your “style profile”. This includes your sizes, style preferences, and a whole lot more.
  2. Choose the date you’d like to receive your fix. A personal stylist will hand-select 5 clothing/accessory items for you based on your style profile/requests/Pinterest Board (if you have one, and you should). You’ll be charged a $20 styling fee when your fix ships. But the fee will be credited towards your purchase if you buy anything from the fix.
  3. Try everything on at home. Use items already in your wardrobe to make outfits and determine whether or not your fix items will be a good addition to your closet.
  4. Buy what you like, return the rest (free shipping!) You have 3 days to make your decision. Once you know what you want to buy, checkout online and send the other items back in the pre-paid mailing bag included in your fix. If you keep all 5 items, you get a 25% discount!
  5. Leave detailed feedback. Let the stylist know what worked and what didn’t so you’ll get better fixes in the future (or continue to get awesome fixes if they nail it on the first try).

15 Fixes ago, I started the process of replacing my entire wardrobe through this service. Going from “juniors” clothing that didn’t fit well or were falling apart, to more age-appropriate, sophisticated clothes that do fit and aren’t falling apart. I’ve received a few duds here and there. But overall, “Operation: New Wardrobe” is a complete success! At some point I should probably stop, but today is not that day 🙂 There are still a few specific items I’m on the hunt for, and the whole process is just too much fun to give up!

So for fix #15, I requested a long pendant necklace and items to transition into the Fall season with. I even updated my Pinterest Board with fall colors, including scarves, vests, boots, sweaters, flannels, etc. etc. My stylist definitely nailed the “comfy cozy” theme for this fix! Unfortunately the actual weather in California hasn’t received the memo -_-

Item #1 and #2 Sawyer Space Dye Dolman Sleeve Knit Top (MARKET & SPRUCE) and  Cecily Chevron & Fringe Pendant Necklace (BAY TO BAUBLES)

FYI- my husband took the photos so I just had to include the totally candid shot above (I have no idea what he said, but I clearly didn’t approve) Anyway! I’ll start with the top: I love everything about it, but I’m afraid I’ll ruin it. It’s a soft delicate knit top, which tends to snag easily (I have a history…) But I love the way it fits and looks. It’s thin, lightweight and a beautiful fall color- burgundy! If I save this top for occasions when I’m not with my kids, I might be able to keep it in good condition. But even then, there’s no guarantee! Are snags easily fixed? I don’t know. Not sure I want to take the risk. I could be convinced though.

As for the necklace: I love the length and the style a lot. But….the color of the gold makes it look really cheap. I’m a little disappointed. All the other jewelry items I’ve received seemed to be a much higher quality. Since it’s not a must-have item right now,  I think I’ll hold out for a better one in the future. But I do like it a lot, it’s really a beautiful piece (I need to stop looking at the picture before I change my mind….)

Item #3 Bralie French Terry Asymmetrical Cape (MYSTREE)

First of all- who knew fashion capes were a thing? I didn’t. A cape! I love that this is a cape. But it has sleeves, so it’s basically a cardigan (especially when it’s open). I like this a lot, but would prefer it in a different color. I saw it in olive green on someone else and was hoping I would get the same one. It’s insanely comfortable and warm. The inside is soft and fuzzy . It’s like wearing a blanket (but WAY more fashionable than the Snuggie) If not for the color, this would be a definite keeper!

Item #4 Shara Herringbone Vest (41HAWTHORN)

I looooooove this vest! I’ve seen vests floating around on Pinterest and decided I needed one for myself, so I pinned a ton of them. I saw this particular vest on other Stitch Fix bloggers before (though in black/white, not grey), so I’m thrilled to have my own now. It’s the perfect “fall transition” item, adding a little extra core warmth on a chilly day. It pairs well with my chambray (pictured) and would also look good with a plaid shirt, or a long-sleeved striped top, etc. So many outfit possibilities with this one! Keeper for sure.

Item #5 Sammie Plaid Infinity Scarf (LOOK BY M)

This is the first time I’ve requested a scarf from Stitch Fix. I have plenty of scarves and used to wear them all the time. But the ones I have aren’t really my style anymore, so I’m trying to change it up a bit. I love plaid and I love infinity scarves, so this really should be a keeper. However, I peeked at what Trunk Club is sending me this week, and they’re sending me 2 scarves that I like a little better than this one :-/ So this is probably going back. If money weren’t an issue I’d just keep all of them.

I’m at the point now where I’m starting to be more picky with what I keep, now that I have a pretty solid wardrobe I’m happy with. And the addition of Trunk Club forces me to be pickier too (lest I go broke!) So I’m okay with only keeping 1 or 2 items from this fix. What do you think? The vest is a 100% keeper. But I could be convinced on the others. Let me know what you think 🙂

  3. Krystal, I LOVED reading about your fix and I had to laugh when I saw the candid shot that your husband took! I make the same face at my husband, Rob, on a regular basis when he says ridiculous things while I’m trying to get some work for the blog accomplished. Thank you so much for linking up!

    • Thanks Maria! In hindsight, I should’ve removed the “pin it” button from that particular photo because I’ve seen that one pop up on Pinterest a few times, oops! haha. Thanks for hosting the link-up 🙂

  4. You look great in everything! I LOVE the Asymmetrical Cape! I need to start being more picky about what I keep. It is SO hard to send things back. Enjoyed your post and will be saving the link to your blog.
