Stitch Fix: Reveal and Review – November 2015

Stitch Fix: Reveal and Review – November 2015

This week is the last week I have at home with my baby before returning to work L so I scheduled my November fix to come on Thursday to cheer me up. Well it definitely did! Not only did it come three days early (!) but it’s my best yet! Just what I needed. I had a new stylist, Jessica, (I’ve never kept the same one twice) and I will definitely be asking for her again. In my style note, I requested an elbow patch sweater (unfortunately they didn’t have the exact one I wanted), dresses and pencil skirts for work. I loved that Jessica clearly paid attention to this note and also my Pinterest board as she sent a top I’d pinned ages ago! I was impressed and excited to try it on.

Let’s take a look at this month’s goodies…

Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse – $38

I love this top! It was also on my Pinterest board! This is the second time I’ve had the exact itemed I pinned which is one of the things I love about Stitch Fix – you pin it, you get it! This top has a light and romantic feel and can easily be worn with lots of items already in my wardrobe. The fit is perfect. It’s a definite keeper! Here I experimented with the ‘winter white’ trend pairing it with my white skinny jeans…

Boots (Aldo – find similar here)

Status: Kept!                

Brixon Ivy Cyndi Lace Pencil Skirt – $74

This was the first item that jumped out at me from my box and was therefore the first one I put on! The Brixon Ivy label, which is one of Stitch Fix’s in-house brands, is one of my favorites. As my stylist directed, I paired it with the Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse and I love the combination. It’s definitely something I can see myself wearing. I paired it with my target flats making it an easy outfit I’d definitely wear to school.

I also tried it with my new booties from Forever 21 which, in my opinion, gave it a slightly more ‘edgy’ feel. What do you think? Too cool for school?!

Pixley Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress – $68

When I first saw this in my box, I thought it was a bit boring. Stitch Fix seem to love stripes and I’ve seen this dress around a lot on the boards. Well from the minute I tried it on I could see why! I LOVE it! It’s so flattering and I had lots of fun experimenting with different accessories (accessorizing is my Achilles heel…I’m normally terrible at it!). Even the husband approved! Here’s the different looks I tried…

Warm and cozy…

Classic (ignore the horrible, white, bruised legs!)…

And lastly, with a pop of color (my favorite!). More suitable for Spring but I couldn’t resist trying this out for now even if only round the house…

London Times Cassia Dress – $68

Whether to return or keep this dress was one of the hardest decisions this week! I love the print and think it looks very cute how I’ve styled it. BUT, I’m not 100% sure… I feel it’s possibly a bit old, it’s slightly too big, and the material is not as soft as I would like for a $68 dress! So it’s going back. Plus after deciding to keep the fit and flare dress, I couldn’t really justify spending the money on two black and white dresses in one month. It also lacks the versatility that the fit and flare dress has. But it does look cute…

RD Style Meredith Faux Leather Elbow Patch Cardigan – $68

There was an audible sigh when I pulled this from the box. Not my style and not my color. But I always try everything on. At first, I wasn’t convinced when I paired it with my jeans, but then I tried it with my faux leather leggings and really liked it! It looked kinda ‘edgy’ and fun. The elbow patches are cool. However, I just don’t think I’d wear it that much so it’s going back. I’m definitely still on the lookout for some elbow patches this season, however. Watch this space!

Overall impressions:

This was a fabulous fix! I had a lot of fun putting these outfits together and digging things out of the bottom of my wardrobe that hadn’t seen the light of day for years (I’m talking about you, my cozy, chunky scarf!). I could easily have kept all 5 items but my bank account is pleased I didn’t. It’s my best fix to date and I’m excited to see what Jessica chooses for me next month.

What do you think? Do you agree with what I’m keeping? Will I live to regret not keeping that Cassia dress?! Let me know in the comments below.
