Stitch Fix: February 2014
It's time for another Stitch Fix review -- I love getting my monthly Stitch Fix boxes! It's like a gift I give to myself. :) (Note: Stitch Fix offers a referral credit for affiliate links, which I have included in this post. I will receive a $25 credit if you sign-up using my Stitch Fix link. Thank you for your support!)
If you haven't heard of Stitch Fix, it's a monthly subscription box service. You pay a $20 styling fee and fill out a detailed style questionnaire -- then the Stitch Fix stylists pick out five clothing and accessory items to send you. You keep only what you love and send the rest back in their pre-paid shipping envelope. Your $20 styling fee is applied as a credit toward what you keep -- and if you keep all five pieces, you get an additional 25% off the total.
Alexandra styled me again this month, and I had so much fun trying on everything she picked out. I love that she included suggestions for pairing up items from this Fix with items she knows I kept in previous Fixes. I need that help!
First out of the box was this AMAZING Alan Cowl Neck Asymmetrical Jacket by Sweet Rain ($58). Even before I tried it on, I knew, barring any unforeseen fit issues, I would keeping it. And I was right. It was awesome. Super soft, like a sweatshirt, yet a fun and unique shape. I admit, I wear a hoodie sweatshirt pretty much every day, so this jacket definitely steps up my style by a lot. I have worn it almost constantly since I opened my Fix.
Next up was this Fullerton Plaid Print Short Sleeve Blouse by Collective Concepts ($58). It had a super cute plaid print and cap sleeves but it was just too tight on me. Sigh. I wanted to keep it but I had to send it back.
Third was this Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse by 41Hawthorn ($48). It was cute and I loved the stud details (plus I love black!) but it was too tight across my hips. I would have kept this one except for that. I need to lose some weight. Sigh. Or learn to sew vents in my shirts.
And now that I'm seeing the photo again while I blog this, I kind of wish I had kept this one. Oh well...
Next was this Amani Cowl Neck Sleeveless Blouse by 41Hawthorn ($58) in a beautiful purple that I loved. But I couldn't get the cowl next to look right on me. My girls are just too big for cowl necks, I think. I had to send it back.
Finally, this lovely Ella Multi-Color Ovals Necklace by Bay to Baubles ($28). I loved it. But I had just bought a very similar necklace. :( So this one had to go back too.
In the end, I only kept one piece from this Fix -- the Asymmetrical Jacket. Which I'm wearing constantly. Even though I sent back four of the five pieces, I still LOVED getting my Stitch Fix this month. And I cannot wait until the next one. If you are looking to update your wardrobe with fashionable pieces, this is the subscription service you need to try.
Until next time,
Stay crafty (and fashionable)!
