Stitch Fix Review January 2015
(affiliate links within)
My fourth Stitch Fix came! It came early actually, like 5 days early and I was super excited. So technically I received 2 Stitch Fixes in December somehow, one at the beginning of the month and one at the end, but I'm not complaining! We're calling this one my January Fix since I'm posting it now.
If you don't know what Stitch Fix is yet, it's basically a monthly home styling service. You receive 5 (mostly) clothing items per month styled just for you! You pay $20 to cover the stylist's fee, shipping, etc and then if you like anything at all in your package your $20 gets applied to your purchase. It's a fantastic company and I am loving it. If you want to know more about it, you can check out my fist review here where I explain it in detail. If you want to check out the service for yourself, here. If you do use this link to sign up, I do get a Stitch Fix credit, so thanks in advance if you want to use my link!
I tried to peek at what I might get this month and I couldn't find 2 of the items, so it was a big surprise! My stylist this time was Carissa and this has been my best fix yet! She really got my style and I probably would have kept everything if it weren't for a few minor details. Ok, let's see what I got!
Sweet Rain Estella Mixed Material Sweater $38
|See through back and a lot longer than the front|
|ummm, I can't raise my arms in this shirt|
So, I really wanted to love this shirt. I like the style and I love the front of the shirt. I don't think Hi/Lo shirts really work for me. They always seem to be so short in the front and way too long in the back on me. I get that that's the style and that I'm supposed to wear a tank top under the shirt, but it's still too short. I don't want that much tank top sticking out when I raise my arms. The back of the shirt is see through. It would have been a great shirt that I would have worn many times over otherwise.

Pixley Genie Colorblock & Striped Sweater $68
I didn't know what I thought about this shirt when I pulled it out of the box, but once I put it on I really liked it. It's so comfortable. I wanted to just cuddle up in front of a fireplace and read a book in it....or sit on my patio with a cup of coffee ;) It's a knit shirt where it has a crochet look to it again, meaning there are visible holes. But I love the shirt with some jeans. This one too was a bit shorter in front for me than what I prefer and a little high at $68.
Renee C Bianka Abstract Print Blouse $58
Liverpool Anita Ponte Pant $78
I love this outfit. The shirt is a Hi/Lo shirt as well, but not as drastic. It was long enough in front and not a huge difference in the back. I totally would have kept this shirt except that arms were too tight! It was at the elbows and the uppers arms, which is weird because I have thin arms, but a few of the shirts I've received in the past have done this to me before as well. I had a hard time getting out of it. It also has the tab sleeves that a lot of the Stitch Fix shirts have, but the buttons are sewn on this shirt so that you can't roll the sleeves down. It's a shame because that usually helps with the tight fitting arms on some of the other shirts I have tried. It fit everywhere else perfectly. I'm sad to see this shirt go.
I asked for some black skinny pants and Stitch Fix delivered. I love these pants! I've already worn them three times. They found their way to a date night with my hubby, church, and out and about one day. They fit great and they have belt loops! The pants were a little long, but I tucked them under a bit and you can't tell the difference. I also just washed them (machine wash and dry!) and they did shrink up a bit, which was great for me. These are not a jean material, but more dressy. However I love how you can dress it up or down fairly easily.

Sweet Rain Leandra Cable Knit Cocoon Cardigan $58
Sorry I don't have a better picture of the cardigan. I liked it...but I didn't really care for what I imagine is the "cocoon" factor. See how the arms are sort of sewn to the rest of the cardigan? Plus, it was either a short sleeve or 3/4 sleeve cardigan. I prefer a long sleeve one. Anyways, it was a nice basic cardi that would have gone great to throw over anything, but I just really couldn't get past the cocoon sleeves.
So, I again only kept one item, but I'm super happy. I feel like my stylist this time really got my style and I'm requesting her again next time. I would have kept everything if it weren't for a few little things here and there. Next time I'm asking to focus on just tops...and no more Hi/Lo ones for now :)
Let me know what you think. If you already have Stitch Fix, I'd love to see what you received as well!!! If you haven't tried them yet, and think it might be fun, you can check it out here.

I found a great online consignment store that sells a lot of the same brands Stitch Fix uses in "like new" condition at really discounted prices. You can read about it here.
