Fashion Friday :: Stitch Fix #4, a review

Not long after I posted my Fashion Friday Stitch Fix review last Friday, I received my fourth Stitch Fix* box.

Good mail!

Good mail!

I knew as soon as I opened it that I was going to love it. The first top (the taupe-ish, there on top) is exactly my style (and color), and I was getting a good feeling about the peeks of other pieces I could see.

I tore into it and tried everything on. Before trying on, I really thought I had four (out of five) keepers, but I was sad to discover that the blazer, which I loved, was too small:

Such a cute blazer, and the price was right, too, but I just couldn’t make it fit (even though it was marked as my size). I loved the styling suggestions, too:

This really would have been a great piece for my wardrobe. Oh well, onward. Maybe I can find another piece similar to this (thought the price would be hard to beat).

Here is the whole box:

Stitch Fix #4

Stitch Fix #4

  1. (upper left) Hawthorn Blazer. Cute but too small. Sent back.
  2. (lower left) Black Dolman Sleeve Top with gold zipper at top of back. Loved this so much and I don’t own any other dolman sleeve tops. Keeper!
  3. (middle) Shoulder Button Striped Shirt. The stripes! The colors! The fit! The buttons on the shoulder! I love everything about this top and I am going to get so much wear out of it. Keeper!
  4. (upper right) Braid-Details 3/4-sleeve Top. This shirt is so far inside my comfort zone/native style, I can hardly believe it. I love this color and have a lot of it, but I don’t have anything quite like this (and some of what I do have really needs to hit the giveaway pile). I love this. Keeper!
  5. (lower right). Ridiculously expensive ugly 80’s style scarf. (that’s not what it was called on the label – I think it was something like peacock print silk scarf or some such). But y’all. UGH. What is this mess? I really dislike everything about this. To me, it screams 1980s and not in a good way. And it was $50! Sent back.

I think this will be a very versatile top. I have my eye on a patterned pencil skirt from White House Black Market, but I can also see wearing it with pants for work or jeans for going out.

I really, really like the cut of this, and the material is drape-y and sort of silky.

Super-cute suggestions, right? I see myself mostly wearing it with black skinny jeans and my red ballet flats. I love the shoulder-button detail.

I don’t have nearly enough stripes in my wardrobe, and I am very happy to change that.

This is probably the most “me” item of clothing I’ve received from Stitch Fix so far. I’ve been very happy to get pieces that are not what I would normally notice in the store – that’s part of the reason I’m using this service, to shake up my style a little bit. But it is really nice, too, to get something that is exactly what I would’ve picked out for myself.

This box was fantastic, and I was SO happy to receive so many tops (and nothing sleeveless!). I am really looking forward to getting a lot of use out of these three pieces this fall (and beyond).

What about the rest of you? Some of you tried Stitch Fix through my referral link (thanks for the credit!) – I’d love to know what you thought of what you got. I also love seeing what other people got, to give me more ideas for expanding or remixing my own wardrobe.

*Stitch Fix is a personal shopping/styling service – you fill out a style questionnaire on their site so that they get a sense of your “style profile.” Then you pay a $20 “styling fee” and they hand-pick five items for you, based on your preferences. They ship the box to you, you try everything on, and then you select what, if anything, you want to keep; the $20 styling fee goes toward the cost of anything you choose. If you don’t want to keep anything, you ship everything back in the package provided (they keep the $20 styling fee). If you decide to keep everything, you get a 25% discount (minus the $20 you already paid them). I do not receive any compensation from them for reviewing my experience with them.

But I *do* get a credit towards my next Fix if you schedule a Fix for yourself via my referral link: here. If you have questions about how it works, you can see their FAQ here – and I am more than happy to answer any questions based on my experience, too.

  1. I *love* the striped top! The blazer is really cute, too, I’m sorry it didn’t fit. I’ve found somewhat similar blazers in a lot of places, though – Macy’s is a good possibility and even TJMaxx often has similar, especially this season and in spring – maybe you can find something similar!

  2. Good to see the next box. I have signed-up (yes, you enabled well, there), but i decided to wait until early October so I wouldn’t get sleevless things, figuring they would add sleeves for colder weather. Love the tops, too bad about the blazer!

  3. Great fix! 3-almost-4/5 is not bad. I only kept one item from my first fix. Hopefully this next (2nd) one will be much better! I understand your disappointment with the blazer as I received an amazing dress for a great price that was a bit too small. I REALLY wanted to keep it 😦 I did end up with a pretty floral print tab sleeve top that is great for work and casual wear. My next fix is going to arrive on the 20th and Ill be sure to post lots of pics! Isn’t this SUCH an amazing concept! So fun! xX Michelle
