My newest Stitch Fix box arrived this week and it was filled with pretty layers to keep me warm as fall weather sets in. My stylist Layla outdid herself once again. (spoiler alert – I kept it all!) If you’re not familiar with Stitch Fix, it’s an online styling service for women. You create a FREE online style profile and whenever you are ready, you can schedule your first fix. For a $20 styling fee, you will be matched with a personal stylist who will review your style profile and hand-pick 5 items just for you! The items are shipped to your home so you can try them on with clothes and accessories that you already own to know if they are just right for you.
This post contains affiliate links for your shopping convenience. We receive a small commission each time someone makes a purchase through one of our links, which helps to support the blog.
To check out, just log into your Stitch Fix account and leave feedback for each item. Keep the items you love and return everything else in the pre-paid shipping envelope that is included in your fix. The service costs only $20 per fix, which covers shipping, returns and your stylist’s services. If you choose to keep any items from your fix, the $20 cost is automatically deducted from the price of your clothes and if you keep EVERYTHING from your fix (like I did this time), you automatically save 25% on your entire fix. This amazing service is easy, fun and perfect for busy women who don’t have time to shop.
(Purse, pants, and blouse are all from Stitch Fix.)
Stitch Fix offers a subscription service (in which you can choose to receive a fix every month or every 2-3 weeks), but you don’t have to subscribe to frequent fixes. You can schedule a fix as often (or seldom) as your schedule and budget allows. I’m SO excited about this month’s fix that I’m giving away a $20 Stitch Fix gift card at the end of this post AND I’m hosting a link-up for other bloggers to share links to their own Stitch Fix blog posts. There will be lots of great Stitch Fix styling to click around and pin to your style board on Pinterest.

Now that I’ve filled you in on how Stitch Fix works, let’s dive in to this month’s fix!
Rebekah Blazer from Kensie
The first item that caught my eye was the Rebekah Blazer from Kensie ($88). I reached for it first and put it right on over the purple dress from my 10th fix I was already wearing. The purple and red made for a fun autumnal color combination. I was overjoyed to discover that the blazer fit perfectly. It was lightweight and not at all boxy. I love just about everything that Kensie creates and this feminine blazer was no exception.
The boots are from Enzo Angiolini and I purchased them a few years ago. They don’t make this style anymore, but I managed to find a similar pair on Amazon.
The blazer looked great with my purple dress, but I wondered how it would look with a pair of jeans for a chic weekend style. I tried it out with a pair of flair leg jeans I bought from Old Navy a few years ago and my brown wedge heels from Chinese Laundry.
I also added multiple necklaces to this look. The pink necklace is an older statement piece that I bought a few years ago but the smaller gold necklaces are both from Rocksbox and I wear each of them often. Rocksbox is my favorite jewelry rental service and you have the option of purchasing any items that arrive in your Rocksbox at a discount. You can read more about Rocksbox in this blog post.
The shorter necklace is from Kendra Scott and you can also purchase it on Amazon. I love the gold tones and the stone’s iridescent sparkle.
Jordyn Bootcut Pant from Liverpool
I was overjoyed to see that Layla also included a pair of dress pants in this month’s fix -the Jordyn Bootcut Pant from Liverpool ($88). My past 2 fixes have also included Liverpool pants in similar styles. I love both of those pants and I was hopeful that this new pair would also be a great fit. I was pretty sure that the pants would look amazing with the blazer, so I just added a scarf and tried the pants on right away.
They have a shorter inseam so flats were my only option with this particular pair of pants. The lower half of the pant leg was a little too wide to wear with riding boots. I tried those too and had too much fabric bunching around my knees. But it’s ok. A few months ago I was debating about which pair of Tieks to purchase. I ultimately decided on the Matte Black and they were perfect with these pants.
If you are debating about getting your own pair of Tieks, you can read my detailed review of them in my post An Honest Tieks Review.
The pants were a perfect fit. They didn’t have a zipper. Instead, they have a nice stretch and a wide waistband that makes them feel a lot like yoga pants. (LOVE!) It’s also nice to have a bootcut pair of pants in my collection for the days I want to take a break from my usual fall and winter attire of riding boots. And how amazing do these pants look with my Kensie blazer and a fun scarf? (The scarf was a gift from a student a few years ago.)
Potter Button Back Sweater from En Crème
The next item I tried on was a cream Potter Button Back Sweater from En Crème ($58). My stylist, Layla, acknowledged that she had sent me a similar cream sweater in a fix last year (which I love and you can check out here) but she said the back details on this sweater made it too good to pass up. Layla was right!
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this sweater was quite soft and not itchy at all. It had a nice drape and was very flattering. It was also very comfortable. I added a mix of rose gold and yellow gold jewelry, including my Jesse Ceramic White and Rose-Tone watch from Fossil (similar here), which complemented the cream nicely and made my outfit look weekend chic. It also looked great with the Sophia skinny jeans from Kensie that I received in my 4th fix. The brown boots are Enzo Angiolini that I found at Nordstrom a few years back. They sell a similar pair on Amazon.
Let’s talk for a minute about the back of the sweater. The front may look plain, but this cream sweater has a party in the back. With brown buttons that make way for a sheer, floaty layer, this sweater is surprisingly romantic in the back.
The back layer of the sweater is completely sheer (which is perfectly fine if you are comfortable with showing a little skin). My style is pretty conservative, so I added an off-white tank top underneath the sweater.
I actually own several of these layering tanks from Old Navy and wear them almost every single day. They are great basic pieces to stock up on! I own about 12 white tanks, 2 off-white and a couple of black ones. The white is my go-to layering piece.

I LOVE THAT COAT! Off to pin it now!
I agree! That coat is awesome!
Kt in KC says
I wish I had your stylist! Mine seems to keep changing – I had a really great first fix but then all the others have been below par. I wish my stylist sent me your clothes! You always have the prettiest wardrobe ?
Oh wow.. those pants and that red blazer are perfect and fit you so cute! You’re so lucky they sent you that.. I haven’t had as much luck with Stitch Fix lately!
Ele Scott says
You got much cuter stuff than I did for sure! I had a horrible first experience. Sent me everything one size too big (not my fault I entered info correctly) and wouldn’t refund styling fee :-( Customer service was actually kinda snippy about it. What a disappointment, any other company would have offered to refund at least the first one!
Mary Ann says
My stitch fix was TERRIBLE!!! I sent it all back and was like look at Pinterest board, read my profile and tell me what at all would make anyone think I’d like this. Customer service agreed they were way off the mark. They at least credited the styling fee so I can try one more fix. I suppose I’ll give it another shot, but then I’m done. I thought it was pretty generic.
Maria Manore says
Oh no! I’m so sad to hear that you had a terrible experience! Thank goodness for customer service. I’m glad to hear they refunded your fee.
Jacqueline I says
Love Stitch Fix – I wish they shipped to Canada! Where did you find that lovely scarf??
Oh my gosh! I’ve heard about Stitch Fix but never looked too far into it until today and just ordered my first delivery. After doing that I still wasn’t sure what to expect and, of course, hit Pinterest to see what I could find. Just finished looking at all your posted and am so excited for my box now. I especially loved that you indicate which items you kept verses returned on many posts, it gave me an idea of how well your stylist met your needs. Thank you for the help
Love the cream sweater!!
Thanks for doing the link up! That’s a really cool idea!
I love that button back sweater. I don’t know why I like things with details on the backside of the sweater – perhaps, it is because the backs of shirts and sweaters are always plain and boring! Why shouldn’t the back be something pretty to look at, too? I have pinned it to my StitchFix inspiration board.
I didn’t photograph my first fix because I was not sure that I would continue utilizing the service until I reached out on social media and other people directed me to pinterest, which is ultimately how I found you. I took one photo of just the one item that I kept but I intend to photograph myself and pin them to my board so “Heather”, the stylist, can get a good idea of what things look like on my shorter, hourglassy, frame.
Great post – lots of great items in this box, for you!
Ohhh I love it all!!! everything you received is so my style. My first box is arriving tomorrow I can’t wait.
Hi Maria, I always love your fixes. I tried to add my post to your link up and it keeps saying I don’t have the backlink but I do (and also the graphic). Does it have to be done a certain way? I help run a website and use inlinkz all the time (both front and back end) but I still can’t tell what’s wrong. Thank you!
Maria Manore says
Thanks for letting me know. I’ll check it tonight and push your link through. I think the fact that I have multiple pages in my post is confusing inlinkz (since each page has a unique URL). I’ll take care of it!
Thank you! I’ll resubmit “anyway,” despite that it flags the backlink.
On my profile I lost my budget on each type of item in the lowest category. What is your budget profile? I am wondering what I should expect.
I love the boots. What brand? Where did you buy them?
Hi! I love your blog and I always follow your stitch fix posts! In fact, I pinned a bunch of your blog posts recently which helped me get my very first stitch fix yesterday! So exciting! I love all five items that I received. Just one major problem though… All of the tops are hand wash only. Oops, I wish I would have thought to ask for easy care items. I am a busy mom with three kids under the age of four. Hand washing my clothes sounds nuts and paying for them to be cleaned is not in my budget. Also, my laundry room is very tiny, affording no room to leave things out to dry, so I would have to dry stuff and my house. Yet I am still tempted to keep these clothes (a special Christmas treat from my husband). What are your thoughts? Do you really hand wash all of your clothes?
Maria, how do you like your tieks? I’ve been wanting to buy a pair I’m just not sure their worth the money! Are they comfortable if your on your feet all day?
Would love to know what kind of boots those are?? So cute!!
Maria Gavin says
I bought the boots several years ago from Nordstrom. They are Enzo Angiolini brand and they are perfect! I’m always on the hunt for a similar pair. I noticed this pair on Nordstrom and they are one of the closest matches I could find: http://rstyle.me/n/bym3i5bjbcf (affiliate link)
