So, not all fixes are home runs (which is good for my budget:) ). This one was not. I went out on a limb and asked for a skirt and a chunky sweater or cardigan and while Gillian tried – it was just not what I was looking for.

All was not lost, I did keep three of the 5 pieces and I appreciate that she tried to find what I was looking for – it was a long shot.

So, before we get on to the fashion show, a little about Stitch Fix. Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. You fill out a style profile online, schedule your fix and wait for the package of goodies!! Try everything on in the comfort of your own home and keep only what you want. Use the pre-paid envelop to mail back the rest (if anything!!) and that’s it.

A few details:

  • There’s a $20 styling fee, which is used towards your order
  • If you keep all 5 items you receive 25% off your order.
  • You choose your price range.
  • The more feedback you give to your stylist, the better your fixes get over time. So be sure to be very specific to your stylists so that they can send you things you’ll love. I highly suggest hooking up your Pinterest style board to your profile as well.

Lastly, if you want to sign up use this link. (Full disclosure, I get a referral bonus if you use that link. You can too once you’re signed up and share with your friends!)

Now, let’s go through what I kept:

Bay to Baubles Rowena Leaf Pendant Necklace

I loved this one – simple, different and just the right length.

41Hawthorn Walt Striped Skirt

This is one that I wouldn’t have normally purchased for myself and definitely not one for “fat days” but it’s nice to have something different in my closet. I have to find a nice navy cami and it would pair perfectly with my mustard colored cardi.

Pomelo Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse

I LOVED this one! I’ve already worn it a bunch – perfect with skinny jeans and my brown boots.

And the pieces I sent back:

41Hawthon Breyson Pleat Detail Sleeveless Knit Top

This one just fit like a night shirt. I don’t know if it’s because I lost weight since I filled out my profile or what, it just didn’t

Under Skies Simran Solid French Terry Moto Jacket

This was the one she tried in lieu of a chunky sweater and just not at all what I was looking for. That’s not always a bad thing because heck, that’s part of using this service. Unfortunately, this one was just not what I was looking for so it went back.

So there you have it. Not a dud but not the homerun I’ve had in the past. My next fix is November. I’m anxious to see what fall pieces they send along.
