Welcome to my first review since the big move: Stitch Fix Review #29! It was really fun taking these photos with a new backdrop. I love that I have a few options now- inside the house with glowy natural light in the living room, outside in the backyard with some greenery/fence action, or right up against our BLUE house! In front of the red front door is another option, but I’d be kind of embarrassed to”model” right out front for all the neighbors to see haha. So, for this shoot- we went with the blue house backdrop.

As I’ve said several times before, Stitch Fix was a LIFESAVER for me as a new mom, approaching my 30’s, trying to figure out my style and the best fit for my body. Over the course of 2 years worth of fixes, they had pretty much replaced my entire wardrobe. So I started getting more specific with my requests for special occasions or certain items I was pining for.
For this particular “birthday fix” (it came right before my birthday), I asked for “going out” pieces for date nights or girl’s nights. Items that I would not necessarily wear during the day around my kids. I was very pleased with what my stylist delivered- and especially loved all the bright, bold colors! I tend to get a lot of neutrals and a lot black in my fixes and trunks (for good reason, I almost always keep them lol). But I wanted more color in my wardrobe, and that’s what I’m getting now. Hooray!
1. Jax Filagree Drop Earrings, BAY TO BAUBLES- $28 (KEPT)
I didn’t get a great shot of the earrings other than the photo above, but I’m wearing them in all the other photos too. I didn’t have any earrings like this until now and I know I’ll wear them with just about anything, whenever I’m in a gold jewelry mood (which seems to be quite often recently). So these were no-brainer keepers.
2. Charleene Woven Hem Split Back Knit Top, COLLETTE $38 (RETURNED)
While I love the red color, the soft fabric and the woven hemline- I ended up returning this. Mostly because of the sheer back. I don’t like that you can see my bra strap..and even the bumps of the straps underneath it. I already have too many tops that I need to wear a cami underneath and I just want more things that I can wear by itself, ya know? I’m almost on fix #30 so I’m getting picky lol. I do need more of this color in my wardrobe though so I’ll be asking for another red top in the future. And I really do love that kind of hem. Sigh…
Maisha Ponte and Faux Leather Jacket, EDYSON $88 (RETURNED)
This faux leather jacket is pretty much perfect. It’s such a great piece to add a little “edge” to any outfit. It was super comfortable and looked amazing with the outfit I had on. I also love the open drape front. So you’re probably wondering why the heck I returned it lol. Well, it’s because I JUST got my first REAL black leather jacket from Trunk Club about a week earlier. So it didn’t make sense for me to keep this since the “black leather jacket” category is already covered in my wardrobe now.
4. Castello Scallop Hem Blouse, ALICE BLUE $44 (KEPT)
This is a perfect “going-out” blouse. It does require a strapless bra which made it lose a FEW points, but again…it’s for going out. I can make a little extra effort haha. I love the royal blue color and the scallop hemline (such a cute detail). The back is cute too. It was my husband’s favorite out of the entire fix, so that helped make my decision a little easier 🙂 Keeper.
5. Alexis Dress, FRENCH GREY $48 (RETURNED)
Sadly, this dress didn’t fit. Too big in the chest area…story of my life lol. Also, I’m not really big in to wearing bright pink. Had it fit me well enough and I wanted to give it a try, I would probably pair it with a jacket or cardigan to tone down all the pink. But it is a cute dress and would look great on someone else! It’s also a really great price for a Stitch Fix dress!
So, what do you think of my fix? If you see anything you like, be sure to pin it to your own Pinterest board so your stylist can see!
Before I go, just want to remind you about an exciting announcement that Stitch Fix made this week– they launched Plus Size! I’m thrilled that this amazing service is available to more women now. Well done, Stitch Fix!
