Stitch Fix -- October 2016

I got another Stitch Fix box in the mail this week!

What's that you say? You don't know about Stitch Fix? Gasp! Allow me to enlighten you...

{about stitch fix}

Stitch Fix is an online styling/shopping service. For a $20 styling fee, they send you five clothing pieces or accessories that a personal stylist has chosen just for you, based on your style profile, special notes to your stylist, and even your Pinterest boards. When you receive the box, you can choose to purchase as many of the items as you want to keep forever, and then return what you don't want in the provided return bag (postage is prepaid!). Your $20 styling fee gets deducted from your shopping total, and if you love everything, you get a 25% discount off of the entire box!

You can choose to just receive one box (no subscription required!), or you can subscribe to receive boxes as often as you want them: every 2-3 weeks, monthly, every other month, or quarterly. So pretty much whenever you want.

Stitch Fix has been a great way for me to try some clothes that I may have never picked up in a store. It's also made it convenient for me to shop, since I don't have to drag my kiddos to a store with me just so they can hide in the racks the whole time. #truth

Honestly, some boxes are better than others. And some of the pieces are a little bit more expensive than the clothes I usually find for myself. (Remember -- you do have to BUY the items separately from your $20 styling fee!) But in my opinion, even keeping ONE thing from your box is worth it, since you get $20 off it! 

{full disclosure: the links to Stitch Fix in this post are referral links, so if you use one of these links and end up getting a box, I get a small credit put on my Stitch Fix account. Which is always cool, if you're feeling like earning a little positive karma or something.}


{my stitch fix -- october 2016}

If you recall, my last Stitch Fix was simply the best. I kept everything (first time I've ever done that!) and I've worn all of the pieces at least once. I actually requested the same stylist I had for that fix, but she was unavailable (womp womp). 

So this box had a lot to live up to. Let's see how it did...

Anica 3/4 Sleeve Knit Top ($48)

first impressions: Someone at Stitch Fix has clearly figured out that they need to send me all the striped, 3/4 sleeve tops they can get their hands on. Love the look of this, and the pop of color on the pocket is so cute (and purple!)!

thoughts: Yes! I love the color scheme, the material, the fit. Oh! And when I unfolded it, I realized it has BUTTONS all the way down the back! Cutest detail ever. It's all good, you guys. It's allllll good. KEEP.

Loveappella Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt ($64)

first impressions: Interesting color. I've seen a few "funnel neck" things this year and am curious to see how it looks on me.

thoughts: I don't mind the funnel neck at all, but I don't love the drawstring that comes with it. It's just kind of....awkward. And the color still isn't my fave. And something about the's kind of...rough? Not the soft coziness I expect from a sweatshirt. This is a RETURN.


Loveappella Berens Pullover Knit Top ($54)

first impressions: Very pretty blue color. Looks kind of...short?

thoughts: Yeah, it's too short. The slits on the sides don't help with that. And other than the pretty color, the whole thing is just a little too plain, I think. RETURN.


RD Style Rhonda Faux Leather Jacket ($78)

first impressions: I had put on my note to my stylist that I wanted a light jacket for the coming cooler months. I have a faux leather jacket that is now too small, so this could be perfect! Please let it be amazing so I can justify the cost!

thoughts: Oh, I'm just not sure. I think it's got to be a no. It just feels a little too bulky, and maybe even a little too big, for me to really fall in love with it. Such a shame. RETURN.


Loveappella Deline Woven Hem Knit Top ($54)

first impressions: Very cute style. Not sure how it's going to look on me.

thoughts: Well that's a shame. I wish I'd had this shirt when I had no kids and no hips. As it is, this makes my hips look wider, which is not what I need right now. Sorry, cute shirt. You're going back from whence you came. RETURN. 



Well, obviously not the great box that the last one was. But I did get one great shirt out of it, which means I get to use my $20 styling fee (phew!). I'm totally fine with only keeping one thing -- especially when it's this cute!

Again, if you think you might like to try Stitch Fix for yourself (even just one box, to try it out!), use this link to fill out your style profile and schedule your first box!
