July 2019 Stitch Fix Review

My latest Fix got here a few days before the July 4th weekend. I got a lot of good items but after opinions and double checking, I only kept 1 item.

Here is how Stitch Fix works:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep. I actually have a Style Pass(I have no idea how I got it) which means I pay $49 for the whole year instead and I get a one-time $49 credit.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest. If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase.  Don’t like something, they send you a pre-paid mailing bag to drop in the mailbox.  It is free shipping.

I always get feedback from my husband and two friends through text.

Here is what I got and everything is Stitch Fix that I am wearing:

IMG_20190630_194026924 (1)

Pink Clover Pallas Knot Front Knit Top ($28) and Liverpool Johnny Short ($68)

IMG_20190630_193831492_BURST000_COVER_TOP (1)

I almost kept this shirt. 2/3 people liked it but ultimately I decided against it because I am not the biggest floral fan, yeah I own some floral pieces but I don’t need a whole wardrobe of it and I am not a fan of the front knot. I think it draws attention to my tummy which is my least favorite area.

I did keep the shorts though. I liked the color and they fit so well. I can dress them up or wear them more relaxed.

Papermoon Almeida Crochet Detail Blouse ($42) and same shorts

IMG_20190630_193922538 (1)

I did not like this top. The top is very sheer and I refuse to wear layers in the hot summer. The top was also a little too tight in the bust area so I couldn’t really move my arms.

Colette Laraine Back Detail Knit Top ($34) and same shorts

IMG_20190630_194008158 (1)

I liked this top but it hugged in the wrong places. I also have a shirt that is very similar except it is navy and white and half sleeves.

Mia Jazzlyn Slide Sandal ($39)

IMG_20190630_194041707 (1)

I really liked these sandals and they were comfy but they were too small. I could exchange them for a bigger size but I worried the slide part would be too loose then. So I sent them back.

April 2019 Stitch Fix Review

April is almost over, well like in 8 days. This month I had a Stitch Fix and now have time to review it.

Here is how Stitch Fix works:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep. I actually have a Style Pass(I have no idea how I got it) which means I pay $49 for the whole year instead and I get a one-time $49 credit.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest. If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase.  Don’t like something, they send you a pre-paid mailing bag to drop in the mailbox.  It is free shipping.

I always get feedback from my husband and two friends through text.

Here is what I got:

Everything is Stitch Fix except the shorts. Those are mine, they are my favorite and I have had them since 2003. Oh and I took these pictures on a Friday night after work which is why my hair looks like this mess.

Market & Spruce Ezide Textured Print Top $58

IMG_20190405_193432352 (1)

This top is cute and it fit great. It was really comfy too. My friends loved this top. However, I sent it back. The back of the shirt was pretty sheer so I couldn’t really wear it without a cardigan or something and since I live in Houston, I don’t really want layers in the summertime.

Skies are Blue Asa Striped Ponte Blazer $78

IMG_20190405_193501873 (1)

This is a cute blazer and would look cute with a pair of skinny jeans. My husband really liked this blazer while my friends did not. I returned it because while I liked it, I am not a blazer person. I think it would just end up hanging in my closet all day.

Colette Romey Cold Shoulder Knit Top $34

IMG_20190405_193353488 (1)

The fabric was really soft but it was really short. The sides of the shirt go to right where my waistband is and I really hate short shirts. I also do not really like cold shoulder tops. Also, it looks like I am not wearing this top correctly but I swear I am. Therefore, I sent it back.

French Grey Troian Brushed Knit Dress $48

IMG_20190405_193109729 (1)

Everyone loved it including me. This was a winner. The fabric is to die for soft. The pattern is cute and I like the colors. I have already worn it to a baby shower. It fits great and it is really comfortable too. Highly recommend this dress.

October 2018 Stitch Fix Review

Last week I got my Stitch Fix. The photos are horrible quality and weird angles. My husband was lying down and refused to get up. I would have redone them but I was done for the night. I always ask my husband for his opinions and then I text the pictures to two of my very honest friends for their opinions too.

If you are new to Stitch Fix, this is how it works:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

Here is what I got:

IMG_20181008_113919739 (1)

Papermoon Larie Crew Neck Blouse ($44) and Democracy Kathryn Bootcut Jean ($68)

IMG_20181005_195954944 (1)

I kept the blouse. I thought it would be a nice top for teaching that I could wear with jeans but also professional pants. The jeans fit great but when I unbuttoned them, the zipper automatically went down. If I am paying $68 for jeans then I want them to be really sturdy.

Same jeans and Papermoon Ampton Back Detail Knit Top ($34)

IMG_20181005_200055712 (1)

This top was so soft and was almost a keep. My two reasons for not keeping it: not a fan of olive colors and thought the blouse was more professional. I had decided to only keep one item even before I opened the box because I am trying to spend less money and put more into savings. You know, being adult and all.

Same jeans and top from above and Just USA Starling Denim Jacket ($68)

IMG_20181005_200137247 (1)

First, the jacket would not button on me so fit was a no go. Second, not a fan of denim jackets. I don’t think I have ever owned a denim jacket and I am not going to start now. For the people who love denim jackets, good for you and I am sure they look fab on you, just not a fan for myself.

Market & Spruce Britta T-shirt Dress ($64)

IMG_20181005_200319357 (1)

This was almost a win too. I love t-shirt dresses. However, not a fan of the price. My friend also did not like the neckline and sleeve detail. I also own a lot of striped items so maybe if this was different print or even colors because most of my striped items are black/white or white/navy.

July 2018 Stitch Fix Review

Last week I got my Stitch Fix. I didn’t have time to try them on until the day they were due. I always ask my husband for his opinions and then I text the pictures to two of my very honest friends for their opinions too.

My letter from my stylists

Market & Spruce Elody Embroidered Detail Dress ($68)

IMG_20180713_132726173

This dress was cute and has small cutouts on the top. One of my friends did not like the dress because she thought it felt too 95-97 with the daisy fad. I didn’t like how high the armpit holes were. I couldn’t see myself being comfortable wearing this all day so back it went.

Alice Blue Simona Henley Blouse ($36) and Kut From the Kloth Kristi Frayed Boyfriend Jeans ($88)

IMG_20180713_132937538

I love Kut from the Kloth jeans so I knew this pair would be a winner. I needed a new paid of capri’s for when school starts back up. These fit so well and makes me look slimmer. The blouse was cute but had no stretch to it which I like my shirts to have some stretch to them. So the blouse went back.

Your Story Bowman Lace Detail Top ($44) and same jeans

IMG_20180713_133023975

One of my friends really liked this top, my husband thought it was okay and I though my meh so it went back.

Threads 4 Thought Ade Colorblock Legging ($74) and top from above

IMG_20180713_133202919

Now this outfit is a winner! Just kidding, I just didn’t feel like finding a top. These leggings were so soft and comfy. However, they are see-through and not squat proof. If I am going to pay $74 for leggings, they better not show anything!!

May 2018 Stitch Fix Review

This month I got a new stylists that I have not worked with before. I guess I forgot to request the same ones but this one was really good too that I have already requested her again. I also made not that I was looking for something in a cobalt blue for my sororities convention. But they didn’t have anything that would fit the criteria.

If you are new to Stitch Fix, this is how it works:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

Here is what I got:

IMG_20180506_194552143

Romolo Roshina Station Ball necklace $34 (returned)

IMG_20180506_194612757

I love silver jewelry but this piece was way too long for my liking. It would look super cute on other people I tend to like short delicate necklaces.

Studio Blue Freya Skinny Jean $58 (return) and Mix by 41Hawthorn Jessa Essential Knit Tee $32 (return)

IMG_20180506_195019718

The stylists recommended these pants because I have bought bright colors before. However, I do not like light purple. It just makes me look gross. Plus these pants are like a half-size too small. The shirt was comfy but nothing special to spend the money on. It is also in the high 90s now so I would not get to wear it until next January.

Le Lisn Juri 2fer Maxi Dress $74 (kept)

I love this dress. The skirt part is very light weight and has slits and the just the right amount of sass. The only draw back? My horrible year around tan line. The stress was really comfy though and I can wear it year round here.

Wisp Leeah Lace Knit Dress $68 (kept)

IMG_20180506_195615303

Another winner. This will be perfect for convention. I think it takes some weight off of me which is always a plus.

So I spent more than I wanted to this month but I did get 2 dresses I really like. Want to try Stitch Fix for yourself? Go here

Stitch Fix March 2018 Review

I received my 28th Stitch Fix yesterday. So I quickly took some pictures. I really have no idea what I am going to keep.

Here is what I got:

My stylist I had in January was on vacation so I got a new stylist again. I also get advice from my husband and two friends through group messenger.

IMG_20180314_185458989

Nine West Speak Up Satin Printed Flats $69

IMG_20180314_185413918

I am a sucker for flats, especially pretty flats. These would look cute with jeans and a simple shirt or like black pants with a solid top. My problem is the price as I am on a budget for the time being. So I am undecided.

French Grey Gerarda Ruffle Hem Brushed Knit Dress $54

IMG_20180314_185341607

This dress is a little heavy but really soft and comfy. My problem, it is a little too short. So from the front, it looks fine, in the back though, the ruffles are on my butt. My husband liked this one the best and didn’t think it looked too short. My friends liked the dress too but haven’t seen it in person.

41 Hawthorn Dabit Sheer Detail Blouse $54 and Liverpool Annemarie Skinny Jean $78

IMG_20180314_185203176

Don’t like the blouse. The color looks gross on me and there is a gap in the buttons where my bust is. So it is definitely no. My friends were not a fan of the grey jeans, but my husband really likes them. So again, not sure.

Skies are Blue Mishella Lace Yoke Knit Top $58 and same jeans

IMG_20180314_185113504

My friends all like this top but I am unsure. The shirt color and lace color just don’t seem like they go together but you can’t tell by this picture.

So I am not sure what to keep this time and what to send back. I have a couple of days to decide.

January 2018 Stitch Fix Review

So I got my Stitch Fix on a Friday, it was supposed to be returned and I hadn’t tried on the clothes yet and then I had surgery. Luckily, the company is great and gave me a couple of weeks to try them on. So I waited until I felt comfortable trying on clothes.

Anyway, here is how it works if you are new:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest. If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase.  Don’t like something, they send you a pre-paid mailing bag to drop in the mailbox.  It is free shipping.

Here is what I got:

I have a new stylist this month which sometimes means you are starting from scratch but I think my new stylists did a pretty good job.

IMG_20180125_053630094

Vigross Erika Skinny Jean ($68) & Pixley Axel Colorblock Mesh Insert Pullover ($58)

IMG_20180124_193256668

Sorry the picture is blurry, my son was attacking my photographer. The top is a light sweater with a purple triangle at the neckline and a purple stripe down both arms. Not really my color choice or design. The jeans are comfy but seem tight. It could be that they are too small or I am still bloated from my surgery. I really don’t want to keep them though and it be that they are just too small.

Kaileigh Katinka Knit Dress ($48)

IMG_20180124_193732389

This dress is really comfy and my husband loves this dress. However, I am not a fan of the bell sleeves.  Not sure if I can get past it.

IMG_20180124_193435752IMG_20180124_193429045

Same jeans and Truly Poppy Jarred Lace Detail Cap-Sleeve Blouse ($58)

I love this shirt and so do my two friends who I sent these pictures to. My son did not as he said “Oh no, holes!” That is style advice from a toddler. I believe this top will be a keeper. I like that is has some sexiness without being trashy and still modest.

Mix by 41 Hawthorn Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan ($38) and the same jeans and black top.

IMG_20180124_193612363

First, I love the color. While I own a lot of cardigans, I do not own any this vibrant shade of purple which is labeled as Jewel Tone Purple. I love cardigans as a teacher because I can put on some simple pants, a tank and wear a cardigan for an easy but put together outfit.

 

So comment below on what I should keep.

Stitch Fix November 27th Review

Over the holiday weekend I received another Stitch Fix. I was shocked because I never received the “it’s coming” email.

IMG_20171128_213120589_BURST000_COVER_TOP

I have been working with this stylists for a while.

Urban Expressions Thea Work Satchel $58

IMG_20171128_213040596

I am undecided about this bag. Not sure if I need another purse. I saw a purse this same color at Kate Spade Outlet but with sparkles on it and they are about the same price. So not sure if I should just go to the outlet and pick that one up instead.

Dantelle Kris Lace Detail Knit Top $48 and Liverpool Shannon Pencil Skirt $68

IMG_20171128_213358599

I have been searching for a black pencil skirt for a while because the one I have it slowly dying. It is like 11 years old. I like this skirt but keep flip-flopping. The shirt looks cute in the photo but I thought it looked very frumpy on me.  My husband liked it but I was not a fan.

No Comment Terri Cut Detail Waffle Knit Top $38 and Pixley Ann Faux Leather Trim Skirt $68

IMG_20171128_213557965

The shirt is a no.  It goes up a little on the sides and I feel like it was too short.  My husband did not like the top, he said it looked like a tore the neckline. I tried explaining that is the style but he said no, and I don’t blame him. The skirt is super cute.  However, it would not zip.  I could exchange it for a bigger size but I would hate to do that and then realize the bigger size does not work either.

Stitch Fix October 2017 Review

This month my fix got here a little early. I asked for my same stylists and I told them I am looking for a black pencil skirt to replace one I have had for years that is falling apart.

MIA Amari Faux Suede Scallop Flats in Taupe $49

stitch fix 1

These shoes are keepers as they are very comfy. In the picture they look almost olive but they are taupe.

Margaret M Deandra Skirt in Black($78) and Vero Moda Derry Ruffle Detail Knit Top in Dark Pink($44)

Stitch fix 2

I am undecided on the black pencil skirt. I like it, but not sure if I want to pay the price. Plus I worry with the material that it will snag. For the shirt, I think my face says it all. It was too short, and too 70s for me.  I am not a ruffle fan personally and the colors just seem too outdated for me.

Same Skirt and 41Hawthorn Betsi Keyhole Surplice Knit Top($54)

Stitch Fix 3

Yeah, this top is cute but I guess I am too busty to wear it as it formed another inappropriate keyhole. Back it goes.

Same skirt, same top and Olive & Oak Miah Hooded Cardigan($54)

Stitch fix 4

The cardigan is very soft and warm but the hood was just too different for me. As you can see with my photo, I couldn’t take it seriously.

August 2017 Stitch Fix Review

My Stitch Fix came early again so I was not expecting Trunk Club and Stitch Fix to overlap (but then again Trunk Club took forever, oh and I am still waiting to hear back on my husbands trunk). For this fix, I kept the same stylists I have been working with for a while.  I also mentioned that I will be going back to work shortly and going to Maine for a wedding.  I wish I would have also mentioned family photos but I can find something for that later.

Just an editor’s note: please excuse my dresser drawer not being closed. It is a Friday night when I took these and I was getting ready for bed and just didn’t really care at that point.

Here is how Stitch Fix works for the new people:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

IMG_20170807_063105740

Style Card

41Hawthorn Kenziah Shirt Dress ($48)

IMG_20170804_215918481

I really like this dress.  It does seem a little short but I don’t mind showing off my legs.  I think this is what I am going to wear to the wedding.  I was unsure at first because it seems to casual but it is an outside wedding, so I did what any girl would do and send pics to my friends and mom and they agreed that I could wear it to a casual outside wedding. So this is a keeper. Sidenote: I send all my pics to two friends first to see what they think, I don’t always trust my husband.

Kaileigh Robinson Scoop Neck Top ($34) and Renee C Maybell Lace Detail Skirt ($54)

IMG_20170804_215800894_BURST000_COVER_TOP

I hated this top right when I saw it and I hated it on. It is definitely going back. The skirt is cute but I was the only one who really thought that. They will both be going back.

Fun2Fun Sayers Pleated Front Blouse ($38) and the same skirt

IMG_20170804_215658162

Hated this top.  First, it is too short.  Second, my bra hangs out.  So not really appropriate for a teacher.

Urban Expressions Clara Zip Top Tote ($48)

IMG_20170804_215554826

Cute purse and a nice size and color.  Might be a little too big for me. I am sending it back though.  So, I do not buy many purses but when I do, I like to splurge. Like my last purse I bought myself was Kate Spade. I only buy a purse maybe once and year and take care of it better than I take care of myself.

 

So I am only keeping 1 item but I still felt like it was a success.  I would buy the skirt too but I also bought a car unplanned last week so let me save my bank account some.
