Stitch Fix #6 – November

Got home from Vegas to a wonderful surprise! My November Stitch Fix box! Okay so technically I knew it was coming, but it was exciting nonetheless. ;) It was scheduled to come the day we were leaving but after a quick email to the Stitch Fix peeps they changed the date no problem. Love their customer service! Here’s what I got this month — my request was for some items to wear for work. Tulle Abner Long Sleeve Textured Sheath Dress | $68 | Status: Sent back I wanted to love this dress. The color was really nice and it had a fun texture and perfect length, but it just didn’t fit quite right. Would be a great holiday dress, though! Market and Spruce Jay Mini Houndstooth Printed Skirt | $58 | Status: Sent back Since I started sewing, I’m so much more critical of RTW clothing. This skirt was okay, but it was definitely something I felt would be a super easy sew so I wasn’t about to pay $58 for it. I’m sure …

Stitch Fix #5 – October

I’m a little late posting this one, but here’s what I got in my Stitch Fix box last month! This was the first time I put something in the “note to your stylist” box before they put my fix together — I requested a vest for fall. Tulle Percie Gathered Waist Puffer Vest | $78 | Status: Sent back Ok, yes, I know… I asked for a vest. And I love the brand; I actually have a dress that I found on their sale page a few years ago (and by a few I mean like 6… ugh, where does the time go!?). Looking back at this one it wasn’t all that bad… maybe. The shape just didn’t win me over. It didn’t photograph well enough to tell, but it was too puffed out at the bottom so it gave me a very weird shape, so I sent it back. I actually went shopping a little with my mom yesterday and found this vest at Old Navy that I love… so my vest fix has been satiated for now …

September Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix #4 Google Stitch Fix and what do you find!? THIS! It’s crazy! I mean… think of another company that has people constantly advertising for them to this extent. I’m sure there are some…maybe Apple… :/ but either way, I’m constantly impressed by their methods of getting and keeping customers. Maybe it’s the power of referral links and the $25 credit that you get if someone tries Stitch Fix from your link… but personally, I think other peoples’ reviews are half the fun of participating in Stitch Fix. Maybe that’s weird :) But that’s why I decided to post my own reviews, even though it feels uncomfortable sometimes. I also love to look up the items I get to see what other people thought of them. It’s always funny when the items I love the most are the ones other people hate or vice versa. Anywhoo… on to my Stitch Fix advertising! :) Oh, and by the way I really do think Stitch Fix is awesome… I have to admit I am completely on their bandwagon. Mystree Charlie …

August Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix #3 – The time I almost kept everything! My stylist this time, Arteresa, really got me! I loved the colors and simplicity of this fix. See also my first and second fixes. Collective Consepts Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse | $ 54 | Status: Going back Stitch fix seems to think I need a lot of sleeveless blouses; I’ve gotten one in every box so far. It’s a really nice top, but it didn’t excite me enough to keep, and the armholes were too big. Danny’s take on this one was “not enough pizzazz” lol. Sold Design Lab Sara Bootcut Jean | $118 | Status: Going back What is it about Stitch Fix and their ability to find me perfect-fitting jeans!? If you can’t tell from the picture, these are actually “pull-on” jeans… almost like jeggings; they only have a button in the front, no zipper. They are super comfortable and actually the perfect length (she found me a 34″ inseam that actually seemed a little longer than 34″). If it wasn’t for the …

Stitch Fix #2

Happy Hump Day! Time flies! It’s already been a month since I got my first Stitch Fix box! Got this one on Friday… and it was neat because they definitely read your feedback – and look at your Pinterest boards. Crazy world we live in, I tell you! I actually wasn’t as excited about what I got in this one as the last one… but from what I’ve read they get better over time as they figure out what you like. Ark n Co Bellatrix Embroidered Detail Maxi Dress | $88 | Status: Going back On the note, she said this was her out-of-the-box choice for me, and that she’d noticed a similar dress on my Pinterest board (I’m assuming this one). I definitely like where she was going with this, but the fit was all off. Even if I were to alter it, I can see this as one of those dresses that I say I like and that I’ll wear but then never do. Danny’s reaction to this one was “little Dutch boy suspenders” … …
