It’s my favorite day! Stitch Fix Day! My fix was scheduled to arrive last Friday and when my shipping notice came I knew it was going to be a long weekend waiting for my fix to arrive. However, this weekend I managed to grab onto a cold, so when my fix came I was less than interested in diving into my Stitch Fix Box… I mentioned this to a friend and I think she was more excited about this month’s fix.
Last month I was less than impressed with the fix I received so I did write to Stitch Fix. They agreed to give me one consistent stylist to try and create a better fix for me. This month’s fix was done by Jaime and although it wasn’t perfect, she did get a little closer than the last few.
What is Stitch Fix?
Stitch Fix is a monthly or as you request clothing service that’s delivered to your door. You sign up, fill out their Style Profile, and then pay $20 as a styling fee. They send you clothes that match up with your profile. If you purchase something, the $20 is applied against your purchase. If you do not purchase anything, then the $20 is forfeited as a “styling fee.”
Breyson Split-Neck Tab-Sleeve Knit Top
(Market and Spruce)
This shirt was so comfortable. The material was soft but oh so clingy… I kept thinking the whole time Adam was taking the picture “suck it in…” Well, I didn’t get it all sucked in as you can see my muffin top/spare tire/overhang in this picture. Perhaps if I would have made a better attempt at putting an outfit together it would have come out a little more fashionable… but as soon as I put this on and looked in the mirror I knew it wasn’t for me. I like my clothes fitted but not where you can see every bump/lump that I own.
Huebert Space Dye Open Cardigan
In a prior fix I had an asymmetrical cardigan and I was less than impressed. So when I saw that I was getting another cardigan that didn’t fit “normal” I wasn’t excited. I’m not sure who these types of cardigans look good on, but it certainly isn’t me. I felt like there was an extra yard or two of fabric on each side. Do you leave this open? Wrap it? I think if I was 9 months pregnant I would have been all over this bad boy – but I just couldn’t get into it. Plus the space dye fabric isn’t my favorite. I think sometimes these are super soft and comfy but others they are itchy – this one fell under the itchy category.
Elissa French Terry Moto Jacket
(Market and Spruce)
Fat girl in a little coat is all that came to mind when I put this thing on… I begged and pleaded with my Pinterest Page for this jacket when I saw it was a stitch fix jacket. I was in LOVE. But unfortunately the cropped jacket was a WEE bit too small for this mama. Part of it I will accept the blame on… okay, so ALL of it. Last month I adjusted my Stitch Fix profile and changed my sizes to accommodate the baby weight loss I have had. Unfortunately stitch fix sizing doesn’t agree with my sizing changes and I ended up with some pretty small clothes. I have made the adjustment back up. (You will see this later below with a pair of pants.)
Jimmy Ankle Length Skinny Jean
I mentioned above that I was having some issues with sizing. I’m always amazed that I can shop at local stores like the Gap, Loft, Banana, etc and be a specific size.. and then I go and adjust my profile to that size and get pants that “might” fit a 12 year old. I took a photo of the jeans since putting them on my body would distort the pants when I took them off and would be like stuffing a sausage into casing. It was pretty ridiculous and I knew as soon as I put one calf into these pants that there was no chance they were going to fit. They don’t look nearly as small in this photo as they did in person. I had a good laugh when I pulled them out of the box.
Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater
(Market and Spruce)
There has been a sweater that I have been crazy in love with from LaurieBelle’s Boutique that I have pinned on my board and this is their attempt at getting close. I have a serious crush on elbow patches! I think they are so darn cute. This is a very basic navy sweater with fun hot pink elbow patches. I like this little surprise on the sweater as it is so plan in and of itself. I added a scarf to accent the pink, but think it would be completely fine on its own. I have very few sweaters that aren’t cardigans, so I think this will be a fun addition to my closet.
This month’s fix was a lot closer to styles that I would wear and what I would consider “me.” The unfortunate issue this month was the sizing above anything else. I’ve readjusted my profile and am hoping if I keep Jaime as my stylist that things will move towards better and better fixes each month!
