December Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #13)

stit

I say this every time: I know this is outside of my normal fitness/running blogging, but hey – its my blog, and I want to blog about my awesome clothes!  I actually managed to take semi real pictures this time! You should be proud!

Here’s how it works: You set up a style profile and you receive a box with 5 items in it.  You can choose the frequency with which you set up the box …once a month, every other month, etc.  You pay $20 to receive a box.  If you keep anything, that $20 goes toward your purchase.  If you keep all 5 items, you get a discount!  They send you anything from jewelry, to clothes to handbags. If you don’t want to keep an item, they have an envelope to send them back.

What I love about this is that I get a stylist that looks at my style profile and picks out items just for ME.  You can even link to a pinterest board so they can get inspiration and a better look into what you like.

Item Number 1 – Look by M Chloe Houndstooth Infinity Scarf ($28)

This is the second time I’ve asked my stylist for an infinity scarf.  I liked it, it was incredibly warm, but I just didn’t love it. I couldn’t justify $28 for a scarf I didn’t love, when I have a closet stuffed full of scarves.

Verdict:  Return

Item Number 2 – Romolo Branson Metal Fringe Necklace ($34)

I asked my stylist for a versatile necklace that was neutral in color so that I could wear it with many different items.  This necklace did fit the bill, but it was a bit too modern for me.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 3 – Skies are Blue Lasalle Cross Front Blouse ($48)

I love the color of this shirt and was super impressed with this pick from my stylist.  However, something about the fit was just a bit “off.”  It was tight in the upper arms (something I usually don’t have an issue with).  I liked it, but couldn’t justify keeping something that didn’t fit.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 – Ezra Eleanor Mixed Material Knit Top ($38)

I had to show a picture of the back of this top.  Its beautiful. This was a bit of a surprise to me.  Its not something I typically gravitate toward, but I really liked it. Its hard to tell in the picture, but the shirt is navy. Navy is not a normal color for me…all the more reason to get it!

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 5 – RD Style Maureen Twisted Seam Elbow Patch Sweater ($64)

I pinned many sweaters like this on my pinterest board, and my stylist took note.  I love it! The husband didn’t get why this is so cool, but I just love the leather elbow patch.  The sweater is super comfy and I couldn’t resist!

Verdict: Keep

Overall Impression

I liked most everything in this box.  I appreciated my stylist finding items she thought I’d enjoy. I didn’t end up keeping the two things that I pointedly had requested, but I love that she really made an effort to find items I’d love.  I love the surprise of the sweater from my pinterest boards.

Despite the fact that I don’t keep everything, I really do like my stylist and most everything she sends me! The sizing has gotten much better, and almost everything fits now!
