My favorite mail day of the month happened earlier this week… I received my latest shipment from Stitch Fix! The online styling service has completely transformed my wardrobe and I am always so excited to see what arrives in my fixes. This month's fix did not disappoint! I am so in love with the fashions that arrived in my box this week. Rob and I are still in celebration mode for the Crazy Together blog launch so we are giving away a $50 Stitch Fix gift card as well! You'll find the giveaway information at the end of this post. This post also contains affiliate links for your shopping convenience. Any purchases made through one of our links helps to support the blog.
But first, let's dive right into this lovely box of fall fashions!
I love how the pieces included in my monthly fix have been hand-selected just for me. Each Stitch Fix shipment arrives with a personal note from my stylist. She gives suggestions for each piece in the box and explains why she selected them for me. I don't have time to shop and I am super-fussy about my clothes (my mom gave up on shopping for me YEARS ago). It's so wonderful to know that someone out there knows exactly which styles I like, what will look flattering on my body and which fashion trends I should experiment with.
After reading my note from Layla, I couldn't wait to try on her selections. The first item I grabbed was the Abbot Crew Neck Elbow Patch Sweater. I am ALWAYS cold in the winter so I had a good feeling about this classic sweater right away.
I loved the soft neutral color and the contrast of the black elbow patches instantly added a sophisticated flare to this cozy sweater.
The sweater was a perfect fit and felt oh-so-comfy. It made me long for snowy days with warm fires.
Each time I receive a new fix, there is one piece that I simply LOVE to style. This time around, it was the sweater. I layered it with a cream tank top from Old Navy (I own about 5 of the cream ones alone), my gray Pixie Pants from J Crew, and glossy black Hunter boots. The cream boot liners added the perfect POP to this look.
Last year I found the most adorable houndstooth coat from Guess at Marshalls. I love how well my favorite coat coordinated with the ensemble.
I have a slight obsession with outerwear. I own so many coats and jackets and I love how they all have a personality of their own. So when my stylist included the Pierina Textured Colorblock Peacoat, I was overjoyed! I loved the quilted look of this piece.
I changed coats and tried on the color block coat with the cream sweater. They looked fabulous together. I kept on the gray leggings but changed into my brown Enzo Angiolini boots from a few seasons ago. It's a slightly dressier look than the black hunter boots, but still so chic!
The next item in my fix was the Bellatrix 3/4 Sleeve Chevron Print Shift Dress. This dress was a very basic, the print was a little smaller and less graphic than I prefer, and I initially thought it was boring. Stitch Fix always encourages their customers to try on EVERY item included in the fix, so (like any good teacher) I followed directions and tried on the dress.
I am so glad I did because the dress fit perfectly. Yes it was a little plain, but it was comfortable and flattering.
The fact that it is such a basic dress means that I can have more fun with accessories! For now, I just added the stretch denim jacket that was included in my 9th fix, along with some black tights and my brown Enzo boots (similar here).
I love that I can wear this basic, neutral ensemble to school and be perfectly stylish and comfortable at the same time.
As soon as I saw the next item in my fix, I couldn't wait to try it on! The Tobie Folklore Scarf Dress from was simply gorgeous and I loved the bold graphic print.
This dress was a stunner on it's own. Fall in Michigan has taken it's toll on temperatures and I said goodbye to short sleeves a few weeks ago. I layered up with a black cardigan and the dress was still beautiful. I loved the pop of orange along the the pockets and hemline.
I loved this dress. It was beautiful and it was my garment in the entire shipment. Unfortunately, there was one significant problem. It was too blousy on top. The waistline fit me perfectly and the knee-length was idea. But it had the type of sleeves that easily give people a glimpse of my armpits. and there was too much extra fabric on top. Some people can totally rock this look. I an not one of those people. A view from the back looks like I'm swimming around in a dress that was not meant for me. I need my dresses to be more tailored and fitted on top. It broke me heart, but I had to return this item. (Thankfully, returns are free).
The last item in my fix was a Donelle V-Neck Button-Up Cardigan in a lovely shade of green.
I love to dress down with comfortable layers and a fun scarf and this cardigan was perfect for that style! I put on a gray rhinestone striped tank from Old Navy (they have the BEST tanks for layering), my Sophia Skinny Kensie jeans from Fix #4, and a brightly colored scarf with pops of green. The result was an outfit perfect for my weekend style.
How Does Stitch Fix Work?
Now that you've seen my latest Stitch Fix styles, let me fill you in on how the service works. New customers can to to StitchFix.com and create a free style profile. There's no commitment and it just takes a few minutes to answer some simple questions about the type of clothing you like to wear.
Once you are ready, you can sign up for your first fix. For a $20 Styling Fee, a personal stylist will review the information in your style profile (and your fashion-related Pinterest board if you have one) to select 5 items that she thinks will be perfect for you. Shipping is free and the styles will arrive direct to your door so you can try them on in the comfort of your home, with clothing and accessories that you already own. You have 3 days to make your selections and check out online. Once you are checked out, simply return any unwanted pieces in the pre-paid shipping envelope that is included in your fix. Returns are also free. If you choose to keep any items in your fix, the $20 styling fee you paid initially will be deducted from the price of the clothes. The best part is that if you choose to keep EVERY item in your fix, you get a 25% discount on your entire fix!
During the checkout process, you will be asked to give feedback on each item in your fix. Your stylist will take that information and use it to select pieces to include in your future fixes.
How Much do the Clothes Cost?
People always ask me how much the clothes in my fixes cost. According to Stitch Fix's FAQ page, the average price point is $55. Each customer can suggest their own price range for specific types of garments (dresses, outerwear, jeans, etc) in their style profile. Customers are always asked to rate the prices of each item included in their fix during the checkout process. This helps to ensure that you are comfortable with the prices of each item included in your future fixes.
