Stitch Fix Review #8

Shopping

I recently ordered another Stitch Fix  (<– that’s my referral code so if you use it I get a $25 credit) and specifically asked for white jeans and more casual tops. Also, after my last one I asked the stylist to review this here blog so she could get an idea of what I already own so I didn’t get items that already duplicated clothes I had in my closet.

Well, I didn’t get my white jeans and the stylist said it was hard to pick out items that I didn’t already have, but I did get some fun tops!

So, what exactly did she send?

Item #1 – Just Black brand Jake Slim Ankle Length Jean, $88

These were soft and stretchy and I liked the dark color and that they weren’t super tight on my ankles, but they were WAY too small in the waist (serious muffin-top going on) and they were a tad too short. I may only be 5’4″ but my inseam is something ridiculous like 31″. I know, right?

Clearly these got sent back.

Item #2 – Daniel Rainn brand Paulina Graphic Print Lace Detail Blouse, $68

I debated about this top. At first I liked it. I liked that it was different than items I already own. I liked the lace at the top. But the more I looked at it the more I felt that it just made my top half look really square and it started to remind me of the housedress/apron things my grandmother used to wear.

So, it went back.

Item #3 – Pomelo brand Priya Arrow Print Knit-Back Tank, $54

stitchfix-top-2[1]

 

Another top that I debated on for a day or two. I even took the tags off and wore it around the house. I loved the print and that it was really comfortable. Unfortunately, the bust darts on the side were too low on me. and that made the armpits too droopy.  If the shoulder straps were shorter I probably would have kept it but after wearing it around for a bit I realized it was too big.

Also, I decided that the $54 price tag was a bit too much for what was essentially a polyester and jersey top.

Item #4 – Three Dots brand Nevin 3/4 Sleeve Leopard Print Sweatshirt. $74

You guys, I LOVED this sweatshirt. LOVED it. However, it felt a tad bit too small for how I like my casual tops to fit. So, I did what any good shopper does: I asked if I could get another size. I’d found it online so I knew it was in stock in the size I wanted SOMEWHERE. I just needed to know if Stitch Fix could get me the sized I wanted so I could apply my $20 styling credit.

Turns out they could! So, I sent back the small and have a medium on it’s way to me. I’m so excited to wear this top this fall with jeans, skirts, scarves, etc.

Item #5 – Street Level brand Jamie Animal Print Folded Clutch, $48

stitchfix-clutch[1]This was the first time I’ve gotten a bag in my Fix and this one is freaking adorable. It also comes with a detachable cross-body strap (which I love). I only own one smaller cross-body/clutch bag and I got it for free from The Limited years ago. It’s slightly dressier and I thought this one would be perfect for going out to festivals or brunch or whatever. The snap is a bit tough to use but I’m guessing it will loosen up over time (or maybe I’ll pay someone to replace it with a magnet). And for $48 I thought it was a good deal considering what I’ve spent on purses in the past.

So, in the end. I kept TWO things from this Fix! I think that might be a record.

Do you agree with my choices? What item(s) do you like?

    Good call on what you decided to keep vs. send back. And bravo to Stitch Fix for doing an exchange! And that clutch looks adorable yet functional enough to hold a phone, etc. Totally reminds me of the leopard print navy/lavender/yellow cropped pants we have!

    I like the chevron print top too, but would have had the exact same thoughts about the price/fabric combo. Love the sweatshirt and the bag though. Totally agree with your choices, and definitely LOL’d at the housecoat comment.

    That bag is SO you! I can’t say I’m at all surprised that you decided to keep it 🙂 As the proud owner of a small cross-body, I can confidently say that they are, in general, the best type of purse out there. Nine times out of ten, I MUCH prefer having a bag where I can only fit the essentials so I’m not unnecessarily hauling my entire life around with me when I’m out and about.

    There have been several times I’ve gotten an item that I loved and would have kept if it had fit better, but it never occurred to me to ask them to send a different size. I’m definitely going to keep that in mind when I get my box next month. You’re a genius! I think all the items look lovely on you, but fit is so important. Good call on keeping the sweater, though. I love it!

      They said they couldn’t always guarantee an exchange but that in this case they happened to still have the size I need. I figured it doesn’t hurt to ask, right? And they extend your bag return date while they’re looking!

        I’m just curious – did you tell Stitch fix you’d found the top in a different size elsewhere when you made your exchange request?

    Your grandma’s housecoats were more styling than mine. But I see your point. The husband doesn’t like tops like that on me. I have a few. So comfy.

    I like your picks. The sweatshirt looks like the right size. Was it too tight across the shoulders?

    1. Erin @ Loop Looks Post author

      It’s difficult to see in the photos since the waistband of the sweatshirt blends into the pants, but it was too tight across my hips and felt a bit too short. I got the medium in the mail and it fits perfectly.

    Hi! I just got my second “fix” and got the same “Paulina” grandma top. It looks absolutely awful on me–like a mix between grandma and maternity. It was one of two grandma tops they sent me this time. Really disappointed! I might be old (mid-40s), but I’m not dead yet!

    Thanks for your post–I enjoyed reading that someone else had the same reaction to it that I did!
