Stitch Fix Review – September 2016

Still in the dark about Stitch Fix?  If so, the short story is that it’s a clothing subscription service (I’m addicted to subscriptions) where a stylist picks out 5 items for you based on a style profile, ships them out to you to try on and decide what you like, then you mail back what you don’t want and keep the rest!  Easy peasy.  Super convenient for someone like me who doesn’t ever have time to go shopping and who likes getting surprises in the mail.

If you’d like to try it out, you can get started by filling out a style profile and then scheduling a fix for yourself!

However, I know you’re here to see what I got in this month’s box, so let’s check out the pics!!  First up is the star of this month’s box, the RD Style Dalles Side Slit Knit Top shown below with my Kut from the Kloth Goldie flares I got in another fix.  Those flares by the way have probably gotten the most wear out of anything I’ve ever kept from Stitch Fix.  I definitely recommend!!!

I absolutely love the high split on the side.  I’ve worn it both layered over a tank or with leggings and no tank underneath and it is just perfect either way.  It’s not too revealing without an under layer, just a hint of skin to add a little interest to a fall essential.  I can see myself pairing this with any number of leggings because of the simple slub pattern and will go great with a bright colored scarf this fall. Definitely KEPT this one!!stitch-fix-rd-style-dalles-side-slit-knit-top-back

 

Next up is the Market & Spruce Carly Graphic Print Cardigan.  The pattern on this was really cute but I wasn’t a fan of the bulky feel of the sweater.  It’s a double layer which makes a cool 2-sided effect, but it also didn’t drape that nicely because of the weight.  Also, I’m huge on the comfort and softness of my clothing (especially in a sweater!!) and this felt slightly itchy against my neck and arms so it was SENT BACK.

I keep asking my stylist for shoes and I had requested fall booties this time so she sent me the Report Footwear Barb Perforated Peep Toe Bootie.  These unfortunately just didn’t do it for me at all.  I know the peep toe bootie is in style this fall, but here in Colorado, there might be 2 weeks out of the year that you could wear these practically and I’m not willing to pay a premium for something with that limited of a window.  Plus the way the top perforated part sat against my calves was something less than desirable… hence the footless shoe photo.  Definitely SENT BACK.

The other item I had requested in this month’s fix was a plaid flannel top.  Katy followed thru with the Laju Omaha Two Pocket Top.  It has a bit of a hi-lo feel to it which I normally like, but the result on the flannel was that it made it feel boxy in the front.  Plus it has a somewhat v-neck cut to it and I really was just hoping for a plain old traditional flannel.  Also seeing that this is something I foresaw being worn in the mountains or tied around my waist, the white fabric was definitely doomed.  Verdict: SENT BACK  I’ve pinned some examples of the type of flannel I’m looking for and have high hopes for next fix! :)

The other item you can spot in these photos is the Pistola Niki Released Hem Crop Jean.  These were cute, they were comfy (although a bit tight on me) and I really liked the released hem detail.  However, this fell in the same category for me as peep toe booties.  They’re something I could only really see myself wearing in spring or summer and they weren’t quite short enough or long enough to pair with booties without giving me a weird dissected leg look.  Seeing them in the pictures here from the back makes me wonder if I should have kept them, but looking at the picture from the front, I feel like my legs look even shorter than normal and I’m glad that they were SENT BACK

So that does it for my September fix!!  I am absolutely in love with the RD Style Side Split top.  I highly recommend requesting it if you’re looking for a good fall basic or winter layer with a little something extra!!  I’ve already worn mine several times. :)
