Stitch Fix #5

Way back in September, I thought it was time for another Stitch Fix.  Obviously, I’m not a fashion blogger because it’s taken me two months to pull this post together. I like to see what others get in their Fixes so I thought I’d share.

I’ve decided to treat myself to at least one Fix a season. What better way to usher in boots, jeans, scarves and sweater season with some fresh new pieces, right? The last one I had was in May and was a 5 piece keeper. I was on a roll so I was going for it!

Never heard of Stitch Fix? FYI – That’s my referral link.

Basically, it’s an online styling service. You create an online profile with your likes and leave it up to the stylists to pick out items. Based from this information, they send you 5 articles of clothing that get delivered right to your door. You can chose to have it delivered as little or often as you like.

It’s $20 a fix, but as long as you keep one item you can apply that toward the price.  So you only lose money if you don’t keep a single thing (and you get a 25% discount if you keep it all!).

Then from there, you can try everything on and figure out what you want to save and what you want to keep. A prepaid USPS envelope is included for easy returns for items you don’t keep.

Got it? Good!

This month my stylist did an awesome job based on my requests and my clothing inspired board on Pinterest. Lets take a look at what showed up on my doorstep this month. And excuse my attempting at modeling – awwwkward.

Olive & Oak – Baldwin Pullover Sweater
Octavia – Campbell Window Pane Scarf
Mavi – Frieda Skinny Jean
Stitch Fix Olive & Oak Baldwin Pullover Sweater with Mavi Freida Skinny Jean and Octavia Campbell Window Pane Scarf

This sweater is completely me. From the dark moss color to the chunky knit, it screams fall cozy. And I fell head over heels in love with it as soon as I saw it. Kept.

I love scarves during the fall and winter. The infinity scarf I received in my Fix last winter was a fixture on my neck all season long. I usually prefer a heavy material but I love the color and print of it. Kept.

I was on the fence about the Frieda skinny jean. I was (am) in desperate need of new jeans. I loved the fit but not in love with the wash. Ron told me to keep them. So I did. I wear them all the time. Kept.

You may remember me wearing this whole outfit it in another post last month.


Obviously I big puffy heart it all.

Stitch Fix  Skies are Blue Back Contrast Hem Knit Top Mavi Frieda Skinny Jean

Skies are Blue – Neli Split Back Contrast Hem Knit Top

My initial impression of the knit top – LOVE! I mean black, grey and stripes? That’s my thing. But then I saw the split back and thought WTF is this?

Stitch Fix Skies are Blue shirt

The fit is definitely different. I don’t own anything like it. It’s kind of like business in the front, party in the back. Hahaha. Whatever the case, I ended up keeping it. And I’m glad I did – it’s so comfy! Kept.

Stitch Fix RD Style Open Drape Cardiagan andn Skies are Blue Split Back top

RD Style – Giana Open Drape Cardigan

Giant, cozy, Grandma cardigan. Need I say more? Kept.

I went back and forth on whether to keep all 5 items. I didn’t absolutely love every single piece at first try on. But with the discount, it made it worthwhile. And once I decided to keep it all, I really do love each piece. In fact, I wear it all, all the time.

What’s your favorite piece to wear for fall?

Have you tried Stitch Fix?

  1. I have never tried Stitch Fix but I love reading all the posts about them. It seems mixed on loving everything or nothing at all so I just can’t jump on board yet. Love everything you got though!

    • I’ve had some really good and some not so good. One of my first Fix had a white maxi dress. It was cute but so unrealistic for my life. Once I got more specific on my feedback, my stylist really started getting what I like but also picked things I never would have liked myself.

  2. Those items all look really good on you!! I would feel weird about the split back top because I am super sensitive about having a cold back, like I need to make sure my shirts are long enough for comfort and I think that might be airy. My son wears PJs that are a size too small and the small of his back is always showing – he doesn’t mind a bit (I can’t even fathom that!!!). My daughter has a shirt with that split style though and it’s super cute!
    I’m always amazed at how well the jeans and pants fit people from Stitch Fix! I would think that is the issue I would have. It would be a good challenge for them!

    • The only weird thing about the shirt is when I bend over and the back flaps fall over my head! And I’m shocked by the jeans too. I usually have a really difficult time.
