Stitch Fix October 2015 #12

4:13 PM Sarah Koves 10 Comments

I have now gotten 12 fixes.  I am starting to feel like a pro at this Stitch Fix thing.  I really do adore getting a box of new clothes to try on at home every month.  I would get two a month if Dear Hubby would let me.
 The opinions and words here are 100% mine!  This post contains referral links that provide a reward for me at no cost to you if you choose to shop.

What is Stitch Fix?

It is a styling service that for $20 (which gets credited towards any items you keep) you get five items hand-selected for you by a stylist.  You fill out a style profile and link a Pinterest board, so your stylists know what you like.  If you are interested in trying out this service, please use my referral link as I can get credit for sending you their way.

I had some pretty specific requests this month: something plaid, colored cords or jeans, a jean jacket, and a top to match the pencil skirt from a previous fix.  I am usually not this specific, but I have some pretty specific needs.


I have to be sure to thank my youngest daughter, Shmurtz, was my photography today, so I hope you think the shots worth as the seven-year-old took them.

First out of the box was this top.  It is a plaid, tab-sleeved button down blouse.  The style card said to pair it with the brown corduroys in this fix, so I did.

I was disappointed in the colors/patterns.  I am moving towards more brights in my wardrobe, and I felt that this was a step backwards.  The fabrics and fits were lovely.  I would have preferred a pretty red or blue plaid and red pants.  The pants were a wonderful fit as is my experience with Kut from the Kloth pants, but I already own two pairs of brown cords in my closet.

I saw a couple of these sweaters on Pinterest.  They looked perfect, so while I didn't pin one to my board, I am glad one arrived.  I think the length is perfect; it is super soft, and has the best detail on the elbows.

I paired it with some pink leggings from Old Navy that I don't wear all that often, but with the length of this sweater, I could certainly pull them out more often.

I got a jean jacket a few fixes ago, but it didn't fit right.  I don't currently own a jean jacket, and in the same way my stylists have pushed me to get a pencil skirt, I think I am ready to go jean jacket.

However, this was NOT the jean jacket I was looking for.  It was super soft and stretchy, which is a must for me in any jacket, but it was too big and the wash wasn't what I wanted.

Who doesn't need a new bag?

I received a bag similar to this during a summer fix that I didn't keep.  I did keep a bag from my July Fix.  I pinned this bag two weeks ago, and I got it.  I adore it, and I have only used it for one day.  It has five pockets (two outside and three inside).  My Chromebook fits in it along with everything else.

I am challenging my stylist to look back over my requests and provide a box under $200 for those who need a less expensive option.  Here is the note I left for November:
