Stitch Fix #6

•• Shopping

In case you need to get caught up on my history with Stitch Fix or aren’t sure what it is, why not read through my previous shipment reviews and outfit posts?

Now that you’ve done that, let’s move on to my latest Stitch Fix shipment.  I had a $25 credit (thank you to whoever used my referral link!) and thought, hey, I haven’t gotten a Stitch Fix order in over a year. Why not get one now? So, I placed my order.

Since the last time I got a “Fix” they’ve added the ability to link to your blog if you have one or a Pinterest page so they can get a better idea of items or outfits you find yourself drawn to. Which means that in this latest Fix I actually loved the look of all of the items!

Review of items from Stitch Fix order November 2013

Well, you already know I kept the sweater since I wore it on Monday. But what did I think about the rest of the items?

1. Katherine Barclay Tobias Crew Neck Knit Sweater – $98

Pros

Loved the color, super soft, fit perfectly

Cons

Price is more than I would pay for a sweater but with the $25 credit it brings it down closer to Banana Republic pricing and this sweater is very reminiscent of another sweater I have from there that I’ve worn to death

Verdict? Keep

2. Tart Jackman Plaid Cinched Back Cotton Flannel – $58

Pros

LOVED the style, fabric and print and the great details on the back

Cons

WAY too small. I couldn’t even get it buttoned. This made me very sad as I would have bought this in a heartbeat if it fit.

Verdict? Return

Items from Stitch Fix shipment3. Leota Fiore Box Pleated Skirt – $98

Pros

Definitely fits with my desire to expand beyond pencil skirts. Comfortable fabric with pull-on waistband design.

Cons

This skirt definitely accentuated my hips! I think it would look adorable on someone taller with a less-curvy figure but on me it just made my bottom half look really, really wide.

Verdict? Return

4. Katherine Barclay Julian Zipper Detail Ponte Skirt – $98

Pros

Someone was listening when I said I needed a new black pencil skirt! The zipper and pocket detail on the back are a nice touch. thick elastic waistband and fun front seam details also give it a unique quality

Cons

I don’t know if I would necessarily call this “ponte” as it’s a lot more like a stretchy, heavier cotton. Regardless, ponte skirts and I don’t always get along and that was the case here. Too form-fitting for my personal tastes. Also, the price point was too high. I can get something similar and better fitting from The Limited.

Verdict? Return

5. 41Hawthorn Tear Gems Fringe Bib Necklace – $38

Pros

A necklace style I don’t have yet at a decent price point.

Cons

I think I’ve learned why I don’t have a necklace like this! Even getting it to lay nicely in the box was driving me crazy! I just knew I would spend all day fiddling with getting the gems to lay flat. Also, the gold parts of the necklace felt kind of cheap and I was worried about its durability.

Verdict?  Return

In the end, I only kept the sweater. But this shipment definitely has me wanting to look for a blue gingham shirt now! And I was pleasantly surprised that every single item in the box was something I could have loved if it had fit me better. But, of course, that’s a difficult thing to do when you’re sending items to someone you’ve never met, you know? Although, the element of surprise is what makes Stitch Fix kind of like getting a present every time you place an order!

    Interesting! Are the pieces they send normally that expensive?

    I know what you mean about the necklace, it would drive me nuts too. It’s really pretty though!

      Yes, the pieces are typically a bit more pricey than I would normally buy. But the $20 you spend on the box gets applied and if you don’t buy anything you lose the $20 so that’s how they get you :-)

    Stitch Fix sounds awesome! It reminds me a little bit of those monthly Bulu boxes or other boxes that send you samples of items each month to enjoy. To me, part of the fun is just the surprise of finding what’s inside, as well as the joy of getting a package delivered to your front door!

    That necklace is gorgeous in the picture, what a shame that it didn’t work out as a keeper. =(
