Well friends, 2017 is almost here! So this is likely my last Stitch Fix review of the year! Hard to believe. Somewhere between being super pregnant, giving birth and then suddenly having 3 kids (ages 3 and under), I lost track of what “number” fix I was on, skipped a few months and didn’t find time to review some of the ones that I did receive. But I’m back on track for 2017! I hope… 🙂 Thankfully, Stitch Fix keeps track for me. This is Fix #27, a “Romantic December Stitch Fix!”
I’ve titled this a “romantic” fix because I think all the pieces I received have an element of romance to them. It wasn’t something I specifically requested, but I’ll take it! I did request some options to wear for my husband’s “New Years” party coming up, and while I only kept 2 things from this fix, I was very pleased with my options.
Before I get into this fix, let me give a quick summary of how it works, for those of you who may not be familiar: Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service. You create an account online, and complete a style survey with your preferences and sizes. Then, you schedule a fix. You can sign up for automatic fixes or schedule them on demand, totally up to you! A stylist will put together a fix for you, containing 5 items based on your style profile and notes/requests. Once your fix ships, you’ll be charged a $20 styling fee, which is credited toward your purchase if you decide to keep anything. You have 3 days to try stuff on and checkout online. Then you send back whatever you don’t want, in the bag included in your fix (a shipping label is already on it). Free shipping both ways! Super simple.
Now, let’s get started with my December fix!

Item 1: Leeah Lace Knit Dress (WISP) $68
Romance element #1: lace! I love the soft lace and the gorgeous navy color of this dress. It’s a good length and the skirt part is nice and flowy. However, it wasn’t the best fit for me. It might be hard to tell from the photos, but it was just a bit too big and didn’t have the most flattering cut/shape for my body. Therefore, returned.
I styled it with the suede leather jacket I received from Trunk Club (LOVING the navy/cognac color combo!), my new necklace from the J.Crew Trunk, and my favorite leopard print heels. Oh, and we can’t forget my hair-tie “bracelets” (oops…) 😀
Item 2: Rumi 2fer Mixed Material Dress (WISP) $98 / Item 3: Shirley Metal Lace Collar Necklace (BAY TO BAUBLES) $34
For our 2nd romance element: red and black florals (and a shiny “lace” necklace). This dress is very well made (and a little pricey). I love the colors and the print of the bottom. I like that the top is solid black, making it a perfect blank canvas for a shiny accessory. This dress (and the previous one) would work well for weddings, date nights, work parties, etc. But sadly, the fit was off again for me. A little big, a hair too long. I just didn’t feel great in it. So, returned.
The necklace is a light and bright silver and “collar” length as described. It worked really well with both of these dresses. But I already have similar pieces that I love a little more, so I returned the necklace too.
Item 4: Burkett Lace Detail Knit Top (PAPERMOON) $48
Romance element #1 again: lace (black lace this time- pushing it a bit more toward the “sexy” side of things). Simply put: I love this top. It is so soft and honestly, I can’t get enough “lace detail” in my wardrobe. The sleeves have a nice stretch to them so it’s not uncomfortable or tight. Very flattering fit. Absolute keeper!
Item 5: Ceaton Contrast Front Knit Top (LE LIS) $54
Final romance element: pink florals! I love the contrast of the flowers on the black and white stripes. The photos make the stripes look more bright white, but in person it’s more of an ivory color, which makes it even MORE romantic in a vintage sort of way. I love that it’s not striped all the way around- making it more flattering. It has a relaxed fit, and it’s longer in the back, so not “boxy” (which used to be a complaint of mine with a lot of Stitch Fix tops in the past). It’s a soft knit material- like a thin sweater. I really can’t say enough good things about it. It’s a keeper!
Regarding how I styled it….there’s something about the romantic florals that made me want to pair it with pearls. Flowers and pearls is a classic “romantic” combo, in my opinion. I wore these earrings on my wedding day and I honestly have no idea where they came from lol. But here’s a similar pair. The jeans are actually maternity jeans that I’m still wearing (5 months postpartum) because they are amazingly comfortable. It’s a “side panel” maternity jean which I think should just be standard in all pants. And my shoes are “patent leather” nude flats. Similar pair here!

While the dresses didn’t work out for me, I am very happy with my keepers. I’m wearing the striped floral top as we speak (I’m kind of obsessed). Looking forward to my first fix of the New Year! Stay tuned…
