Stitch Fix

I was pretty excited to get my first Fall Stitch Fix, I specifically requested the same stylist that I have had the past 3 fixes, while I haven’t kept more than one or two pieces, I felt like the style and fit was on point. I also requested fall type clothing. Leggings, tunics, long sweaters. I also keep requesting a colorful statement necklace that has a long chain, and I ALWAYS request low price points. My previous stylists were always able to do this for at least 4 of the pieces, usually just one was in the $100ish range, if that.

I scheduled my fix for Monday, because I had tons of things going on at the tail end of this week and I just didn’t think I would have time or remember to get the return pieces in the mail. Monday at 5 pm came and I realized not only had I not received my Fix, I hadn’t received the normal email that notified me that it had been shipped. I reached out to customer service and was able to resolve that. Annoying, yes. A deal breaker, no.

My fix came, and I pulled out the note, and usually the notes are long. They explain why the stylist picked the pieces for you, did they see it on your pinterest page, did it meet the requirements you requested, etc… This note stated that Jackie could not be my stylist and listed the 5 pieces, that’s it, very curt. I pulled out the price sheet and the lowest price was $34 and that was a necklace, everything else is over the $50 mark, which was a bit frustrating.

Pixley  – Leighton Metal Bauble Necklace – $34

Finally, this is the style that I have been asking for, but it is all silver, I wear a lot of clothes that are single colors, I want some fun jewelry to jazz up these items. Also, I feel like this is expensive for a necklace. Returned

Collective Concepts – Ronaldo Graphic Print Lace Detail Tunic – $68

COLLECTIVE CONCEPTS Ronaldo Graphic Print Lace Detail TunicWhen I first saw this on the styling card I thought I was going to hate it, but I love the color scheme and the lace detail on the back. Again with my broad shoulders, it fit and buttoned but there was an awkwardness around my shoulders, and that price, yikes. Returned

Market and Spruce – Xander Short Sleeve Woven Back Sweatshirt – $54

MARKET AND SPRUCE Xander Short Sleeve Woven Back Sweatshirt

At first I didn’t like this piece, it was like a mullet shirt. Comfy in the front, party in the back. But it was soft, and I think it looks good on me. But I am struggling, I don’t know if I can justify the $54 price tag. HELP! Undecided

Kut From The Kloth – Danny 5-Pocket Knit Pant – $68

Kut From The Kloth Danny 5-Pocket Knit Pant

I am bummed that I got these, and that they were super skinny and low-rise, not exactly super mom friendly. I tried them on, but I felt like a plumber. Returned

Kensie – Adolfo Faux Leather Elbow Patch Sweater – $98

KENSIE Adolfo Faux Leather Elbow Patch Sweater

I knew that even if I liked this sweater I would not be purchasing, it is just way to expensive, it was also pulling a little, not a good sign. I did find it at Macy’s, same price as above, so I am going to keep an eye on it, because it was super comfortable and it is something I’d like to add to my wardrobe, just at a lower price. Returned

I think I will give it one more go until 2015. I am hoping Jackie will style me again, and I really hope that I will receive a box full of items that I love!

What do you think, should I keep the orange sweater? What has been the best thing you’ve received from Stitch Fix?

Stitch Fix #2: June 2014

 

 

 

Stitch Fix

My last Stitch Fix was pretty on point, my stylist nailed my style, but all the pieces didn’t fit right, or I had something similar in closet already.

I scheduled a second Fix for the begining of June, mostly because my 30th birthday is in the middle of the month and I wanted to see if I could find something special to wear for a pretty big day. When I wrote my review for my first fix I received an email from Kate at Stitch Fix, so I was super impressed with their customer service.

I made a note to the stylists that I wanted something fun for my 30th birthday, I love maxi dresses and skirts, I also requested no jeans. I wrote that I own a lot of pinks and blacks and while I love those colors I wanted to expand my wardrobe.

As soon as I opened my box and saw the Stitch Fix cards I was kind of disappointed. The stylist included a dress that was knee length. I noted on the first fix that it was too short for easy comfortable movement when chasing a toddler around. If it was dressy enough for a wedding I would consider it, but it was not flattering on the hips/stomach.

I love the price point, but again the color is just another black dress in my closet, and the material felt a bit to heavy for the summer.

Kensie Jeans Johnny Skinny Jeans – $88

I didn’t even take a picture of these as they are very similar to the jeans that I received in my last fix, and the fit was the same, tight and not flattering. I am not against paying a decent amount of money for jeans,  but they better look great on me.

Papermoon Taylor V-Neck Graphic Print Tank – $48

Papermoon Taylor V-Neck Graphic Print Tank

I love the color and style of this tank, but I am not sure it is super flattering? Nick liked it, B liked it, what do you think? It probably doesn’t help that I am wearing a sports bra instead of a strapless. This isn’t something that I would pick out on my own, but now that I see it on, I do think it is a great style for my body.

41Hawthorn Bryan Short-Sleeve Open-Front Cardigan – $42

41Hawthorn Bryan Short-Sleeve Open-Front Cardigan

I do think that this is a cardigan that I would wear, probably because I have one very similar to this in my closet, just the sleeves are 3/4 length. I am definitely going to pass on this one. If It was a color other than black white and gray.

Market and Spruce Dicaprio Layered Mixed Material Knit Shirt – $54

IMG_8455

My stylist wrote that she included this because I like gray and pink. That was sort of frustrating since I specifically said I wanted to get out of that rut. That being said the shirt looks terrible on me. I love the color blocking, but the pink was flowy and the gray part was fitted. I felt like unless I was very slender this wouldn’t look great no matter my size, girls got curves. The price is also a bit high for a t-shirt.

I am going to give Stitch Fix (referral link) another try, because I think the potential is there. I am hoping that they will nail it for an awesome outfit for B’s 3rd birthday.

What do you think? Should I keep the green tank?
