Stitch Fix Review- December 2015
I was so excited for my Stitch Fix this month. I asked my stylist to come up with an outfit that I can wear to church. I pretty much live in jeans, but when I go to church I dress up a bit....which always tends to leave me in a panic every Sunday saying "but I have nothing to wear"! You ladies know what I'm talking about. It doesn't matter how many clothes you have, you still have those occasions where you feel like you don't have anything to wear.
Enter Stitch Fix. I don't have to go pawing through all the clothes at the mall, taking heaps of items to the dressing room that don't work out, and try to decide what would look good on me....and being able to find it in the first place. I love having someone that I can just ask "Hey, Kristy! Can you send me some clothes that might work for church? Thanks!" And then voila, like magic- it's sent to my doorstep... and was absolutely perfect!
And sometimes you learn that Stitch Fix knows you better than you know yourself. That was the theme of this box for me!
This is what came in my fix this month:
Le Lis Carmen Printed Aline Skirt $54
Mak Jaclynn 3/4 Sleeve Button Up Cardigan $38
As soon as I pulled this skirt out of the box, I fell in love with it. I liked the texture, the design, the colors, everything. I was a little worried about the waistband. It felt rough and I was hoping that it wouldn't hurt or dig into me when it was on. But when I pulled it on (no zippers or closures on this skirt), it was incredibly comfortable. I didn't notice the waistband at all. I'm 5'5 and the skirt came a little above my knees. I thought it was the perfect length and, paired with the cardigan like my stylist suggested, was a great choice for me to wear for church....and I did 3 days later!
I had also asked my stylist if she could send me waist length cardigans. I have a ton of longer ones and had been wanting a few shorter ones. This cardigan is perfect and just what I was looking for. I probably wouldn't have picked this color myself, but that's the beauty of Stitch Fix. You are able to try something new that you wouldn't have normally chosen. That's why I signed up in the first place...I don't know clothes. I love having a stylist who has gotten to know me and what I like. This cardigan goes with so many outfits and is the perfect staple piece. It is thin, but living in Southern South Carolina and it still being in the 60s and 70s here, it's perfect.
Brixon Ivy Tenly Dress $88
Kristy sent this dress saying that every woman needs a little black dress for the holidays. And she's right. I love this dress. I didn't think I would like the "tattered" look of the sleeves, but my husband and I both ended up loving it. And the dress fit me beautifully. I love the exposed zipper, the detailing, and the way it fit. It would be perfect to wear to my husband's upcoming work Christmas party- but with the holidays, an upcoming vacation, and my son's birthday in January, I was trying to narrow things down. Plus, I had just bought a dress online that could work for the party...now here's hoping that one fits me and I didn't make a mistake returning this one! Looking over these pictures I'm kind of regretting sending this one back!
Bay to Baubles Emerson Gemstone Necklace $38
When I first pulled this necklace out of the box, I initially thought that it was a lot larger than I currently wear and I was unsure about the chain link....well, chain. However, I've been seeing this style a lot and had been wanting to try one. I honestly didn't think I'd really like it, but my stylist suggested to wear it with the black dress she sent. And what do you know? It looked great together! I would have kept it if I kept the dress, but we all know how that turned out so...
(Again, now looking at my pictures, I kind of really like it with the blazer and think maybe I should have tried a few more outfits with it before sending it back. Another one I'm kind of regretting!)
41Hawthorn Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer $78
I was sent this blazer last month and loved it, but the shoulders were too tight. My stylist sent me this similar one and tried to go up a size in hopes to fix the shoulder problem. This is a beautiful blazer. It was about the same color as the last one, and had a fun striped lining (the last one had polka dots). It did fit much better in my shoulders. But, it was a little big everywhere else. This blazer is a nice thicker material, and the detailing of the ruched sleeves is great.
However, I didn't like how it looked on me when it was buttoned and I was standing to the side. It kind of flared out at my stomach and, well...who really needs that?
So since it was about the same color as the cardigan that I was sent, and the cardigan worked so nicely and ended up being less money, I kept that instead.
