Stitch Fix Review- January 2016 and a Giveaway!
It's a new year and Stitch Fix and I are still going strong! This makes fix number 17 for me. I am seriously so glad this service exists.
I just had the joy of using some gift cards that I got from Christmas to go to some of the stores at the mall, and let me tell you....it reminded me why I got this service in the first place! Besides having to dodge everyone in the place and look through racks trying to find my size, make multiple trips to the dressing room and only come out with a handful of items that fit---made me really appreciate having Stitch Fix and a personal stylist to make this process so much easier! Plus, they pick out much better clothes than I do! ha!
Spoiler alert- However, this month is the first one out of 17 fixes where I didn't keep anything--but not because I didn't like them! Read on and stay tuned for the $20 Stitch Fix Gift Card Giveaway at the end!!!
Le Lis Columbus Pullover Knit Top $38
I loved the oatmeal color and the crochet detail on this sweater. My stylist understands my style perfectly. She knows that I like more basic pieces, but with some interesting details that make it pop. This shirt is definitely that. I felt it was a bit boxy on me though, and this shirt is designed to have a longer back and a shorter front, which I've come to find out don't look the best on me. That's another reason I love this service, because I get to try on styles that I normally wouldn't do myself and see what works for me and what doesn't.
Skies Are Blue Colten Lace Raglan Sleeve Knit Top $58
If I was going to keep something this fix- this would be the shirt. I absolutely love the lace on the sleeves and the back. It's a nice basic color that can go with just about anything (I would have worn different colored pants, but I was being lazy, lol). But if I'm being picky- which I am because I'm trying not to spend much right now with the holidays, our vacation, and my son's birthday right around the corner!- I wished that the sleeve went all the way down and didn't have the "gather" there at the end. It was also a bit tight in my shoulders and elbows when I moved my arms. I could have overlooked all of these things, as this was the item I would have kept. (Purse, by the way, also from Stitch Fix!)
**Ok, just took the pictures and turns out I made my decision to quickly! Now, I didn't notice it being tight at all. I definitely should have kept this shirt, but I already checked out!**
Status: Returned :(
Kut From The Kloth Danny Knit Pant $68
|You can see how long they are on me here|
These pants are great. They are a nice thicker material, fit like leggings but with more coverage, and work for a nice basic black dress pant. They do have a zipper and button if you're wondering. They seem to run long though as they were quite a few inches too long for me. So for you tall girls out there, these pants would be perfect! Normally, it doesn't bother me too much and I just fold them under and you can't tell the difference, but they look just like a pair of black pants I received in a much earlier fix. And those are still in great condition, soooo...
* I've had a lot of people ask me where I got the shirt in this picture. I actually bought it at a Rue21, but I found similar ones here:
Retail Price: $34.99
You Save: $15.00
Brixon Ivy Lezlie Dress $78
What I liked about this dress is the detail at the top. It gives it a little bling so that you don't need to bother with a necklace at all. I'm also a sucker for a cute cut out in the back. But, I don't think the waist worked for me though. Something about where the waist lied on my body made it unflattering. You can also see that the dress has a more "solid slip like" piece inside and a more sheer layer over the top. The solid piece was little too short for me and I don't have too many occasions to wear it. My stylist sent it for a great New Year's dress- which it would be....but I'm not going anywhere fancy!
Mo-Ka Sutton Faux Leather Trim Quilted Jacket $88
What a cute jacket!! I loved the color, the quilting, and the leather trim on it. It's really soft, and a lighter piece- good for layering. But... it's been super warm here in SC! Like- we were swimming at the beach yesterday- warm. So I can't see spending the money on a jacket right now. It would be great in a vest though!
So even though this is my first fix where I didn't keep anything, it's not because I didn't like them. I should have totally kept the blue shirt- and I already had pants just like those ones- and if it were cooler here I could have kept the jacket--you get the idea! I always look forward to getting my fix! It's such a fun surprise every month. If you haven't tried Stitch Fix yet, now's the perfect time to fill out your style profile and give it a try! Plus, I'm giving away a $20 gift card to one lucky lady!
