March Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #16)

untitled

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 forgot to take pictures before I sent everything back!

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 – Kut from The Kloth Siena Cropped Pant ($58)

untitled5

I tried to like these, I promise.  I wanted to give them a try. I would NEVER pick out a pair of pink pants.  I did like the color and the fit, but I just don’t look good in cropped pants.  They make my legs look too short.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 2 – Renee C Samera Pintuck Detail Blouse ($54)

untitled1

This item was a pleasant surprise.  It is a bit different than things I normally wear.  Its a bit see through, but its got this great texture and detail to it that I just loved.

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 3 – 41Hawthorn Hendrix V-Neck Blouse ($58)

untitled4

My stylist knows I cannot resist a loose flowy blouse.  The color is amazing and it is so soft and comfortable.  Huge win.

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 4 – Pixley Millie Textured Dress ($68)

untitled2

This dress was pretty cute! I don’t normally gravitate toward navy blue, but I thought I’d give it a try.  I know the cut is supposed to be flattering, but it didn’t flatter my midsection.  I wish it had worked out because it would have been great for work!

Verdict: Return

Item Number 5 – Skies are Blue Olina Embroidered V Neck Top ($54)

untitled3

My husband loves this top on me.  Perfect shirt for the summer, provides full coverage so it is appropriate in all settings, but still cute!

Verdict: Keep

Overall Impression

This box was much better than the last.  I really did like everything she sent me, but I didn’t like the fit of the pants and dress.  They just introduced shoes to their offerings, so I will probably ask for some shoes the next go around!

February Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #15)

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.

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 – Bay to Baubles Maebry Multi-Strand Necklace  ($34)

untitled1

I had asked my stylist for a rose gold necklace (but not yellow gold – not a fan).  She admitted that she couldn’t find rose gold for me, but tried an antique gold necklace.  The shape was nice, I liked it…but didn’t like the color!

Verdict: Return

Item Number 2 – Papermoon Dillin V Neck Knit Top ($48)

untitled2

This shirt looked really cheap.  It was one of those shirts you could get at Target for $8…but yet it was here in my box for $48.  It was also very unflattering and showed every curve and bump!

Verdict: Return

Item Number 3 – Brixon Ivy Willard Lace Overlay Blouse ($54)

untitled3

I liked this shirt a lot when I saw in in my box.  The color was great and detail was lovely.  I wasn’t a huge fan of the solid black back (instead of being blue like the rest of the shirt), but since I figured I’d be wearing it under a blazer, it would be ok.

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 4 – 41Hawthorn McQue Solid Lace Sleeve Blouse ($48)

untitled

I really liked this top when I pulled it out of the box.  The color was great and the lace sleeves were a nice detail.  However, it was much too tight in the bust, and too short.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 5 – Bobeau Shawnly Printed Knit Top ($58)

untitled4

This item was ok out of the box.  It felt really casual – and I had asked for work tops.  But I decided to give it a try.  It fit fine, it just didn’t feel like something I would wear.

Verdict: Return

Overall Impression

I would say this box was just ok.  There were two tops I loved, but only one fit.  The other two tops were a complete miss.  She did make a valiant attempt with the necklace…it just simply fell short. Generally speaking, I really do like my stylist and most everything she sends me! This box was just a little “off.”

I think I need to be more specific in what I pin on my pinterest board.  I think I’m not giving her enough “pinspiration.”

January Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #14)

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!

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 – Liverpool Rizzo Skinny Pant ($98)

I didn’t think it was possible for a stylist to be able to send me pants that fit.  Pants are so hard to get right, aren’t they? These pants are amazing.  I neglected to take a picture of them, but they are stretch black skinny pants. The length is PERFECT, no hemming needed. I kept them even though my husband might kill me for the cost.

Verdict:  Keep

Item Number 2 – Market & Spruce Wilco Solid Quilted Vest ($68)

untitled1

*The color is off in this picture.  This should be an olive green!*

I’ve been searching for a good vest, and this one fit the bill.  It is very comfortable, well made, and looks great on.  The olive green color would not be something I would normally go for, but it looks good with my complexion and my dark hair. I decided to keep!

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 3 – Crescent Arminta Crochet Detail Tunic ($54)

untitled3

I hated this shirt right from the get go.  Its just totally not me. The print, the shape, everything. Oh well!

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 – Pixley Amboy Raglan Sleeve Trapeze Knit Top ($48)

untitled2

I wasn’t sure about this top. I tried to keep an open mind when I tried it on, but it just wasn’t flattering at all.  The hem of the shirt was just a strange profile for me.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 5 – Pixley Ivy Split Neck Print Blouse ($58)

untitled

So got this shirt in my 3rd stitch fix – March of last year.  My stylist remembered it and sent it to me in a bigger size! Yay!  I love it and I’m so happy to see it again 🙂

Verdict: Keep

Overall Impression

I would say this box was overall good.  My stylist sent me a blast from the past that I really loved.  She hit it out of the park with some PERFECT pants, and did a great job sending me a vest that I love.  The tunic was the only huge miss, as the raglan sleeve top had potential.

I find there is a tricky balance between cost and quality/fit of the items.  If I ask her to go cheaper, I find I don’t tend to like what she sends me.  If the prices increase, then the possibilities open up, and I get some really great pieces.

Despite the fact that I don’t keep everything (if I did, my husband not be a happy camper!), I really do like my stylist and most everything she sends me! The sizing has gotten much better, and almost everything fits now!

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

untitled1

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)

untitled

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)

untitled4

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)

untitled2untitled3

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)

untitled5

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!

Item Number 1 – Brixon Ivy Reyne Lace Shoulder Blouse ($58)

IMG_0049

This top was beautiful and I loved it.  It was simply too tight.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 2 – Pixley Sines Skinny Lapel Blazer ($74)

IMG_0048

This blazer was great! I was surprised to see another blazer, I thought my stylist had given up, but this one is great!

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 3 –  Margaret M Emer Jacquard Print High Waisted Cropped Pant ($98)

IMG_0051

I really like the pattern on these pants and they were beautiful.  I just don’t think cropped pants are a good look for me.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 – Liverpool Collen Straight Leg Jean ($78)

IMG_0053

I know its boring to keep jeans from a fix, but I loved them.  The fit is great and they are so soft!

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 5 – Dee Elle Auriga Cowl Neck Waffle Knit Top ($58)

IMG_0050

I loved the texture of this sweater, as well as the color.  However there was something about it that I just didn’t love.  It wasn’t very flattering.  I think it was probably because it didn’t have enough structure to it.

Vedict: Return

Overall Impression

This box was much better than the last fix.  I asked Michal to stick with more classic pieces and she delivered. I was sad that the top didn’t fit, but I’ve asked for a larger size in my next fix if its available.  I love that the stylists really listen to what you want!

Spoiler alert: This was not such a good fix….

Item Number 1 – Look By M Alzora Zig Zag Infinity Scarf ($34)

IMG_3729

I love infinity scarves.  In fact, I implicitly asked for an infinity scarf.  And I know this is “in” style-wise right now, but I was just not feeling it.  Its not me.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 2 – RD Style Ridda Mixed Material Knit Top ($58)

IMG_3728

This top was just ok for me stylistically, but the fit was terrible. It made me look very busty.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 3 –  RD Style Klarissa Cuffed Straight Leg Pant ($74)

IMG_3730

These pants were cute.  But they were SUPER fitted and totally not appropriate for work.  I couldn’t see myself wearing them casually, so I didn’t keep them.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 – Collective Concepts Airlia Dress ($88)

IMG_3731

This was the item I agonized over. I had asked for a dress like this.  The shape was PERFECT.  The fit was great.  The pattern….not so much.  I tried it on, styled it with boots and tights, and just couldn’t commit.  I just didn’t LOVE it.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 5 – Tart Artois Faux Leather Vest  ($68)

IMG_3727

This was a complete miss. The color was terrible the fit was just ok and it wasn’t my style at all.

Vedict: Return

Overall Impression

This box was a total miss, and it was my normal stylist! I’m not sure what happened.  I really wonder if its just because I don’t like the stuff that is in style this season or what.  This is NOT indicative of my normal experience with Stitch Fix, so I’m hoping the next fix will be better!

Spoiler alert: I almost kept everything!!!

Item Number 1 – Street Level Huron Mixed-Material Reversible Tote ($54)

IMG_3653

Nice, but not a stunner!

This was a pretty cool tote, I liked the fact that it was reversible.  But I have a ton of totes, and there was nothing particularly special about this one to me….especially not for $54.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 2 – Market & Spruce Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top ($)48

IMG_3651

Looks a little dark here, but its forest green.

So I’ve been pinning Dolman tops for awhile, but haven’t gotten any.  This one is great.  The material is super soft and the color is great!  I’m fair skinned with dark hair, so jewel tones tend to look good on me.

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 3 –  Papermoon Keever Button Back Blouse ($48)

IMG_3649

Love the button back!

IMG_3648

Ahhh so cute!

This was the top in my last fix that I loved.  I wanted to keep it so bad, but it was just too small!  I was so pleased to see that my stylist had sent it to me in a bigger size.  It fits great and I can’t wait to wear it!

Verdict: Keep (DUH!)

Item Number 4 – Skies are Blue Tabor Crochet Detail Blouse ($58)

IMG_3650

I was cautiously optimistic about this one when I pulled it out, but when I tried it on it was wayyyy too short.  The cut was not flattering at all.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 5 – Market & Spruce Elissa French Terry Striped Moto Jacket  ($74)

IMG_3652

This was a bit of a surprise for me.  For some reason, I don’t do well with stitch fix and jackets.  But this was a slam dunk! I love it.  Its very comfortable and I love the zipper and button details.

Vedict: Keep

Overall Impression

I loved the style of everything.  Had the Skies are Blue blouse worked, I may have just kept the tote to get the 25% discount off the whole box.  However, I couldn’t justify keeping all of that when I didn’t love the tote and the blouse didn’t work.  Style-wise, this was great.  My stylist is fantastic and I love the mix of things she’s sending me.  I asked for more fall stuff next fix!
