Ask and You Shall Receive: An Edgy Stitch Fix Review

Stitch Fix Review: For my latest delivery from Stitch Fix, I requested some edgy pieces and a funky jacket—ask and you shall receive!

This post is sponsored by Stitch Fix. All opinions—as always!—are my own. I appreciate your support of the brands that make this blog possible. 🙂

Greetings from the bomb cyclone! I think kids today would describe meteorologists’ name for this storm as “so extra” (lol). So far, it’s not too bad in Boston, although I may be eating my words later. I taught this morning and am now cozy posting these Stitch Fix goodies from the couch and getting ready to film a workout for the YT channel. And if the wind dies down, Joe and I might try to go sledding later on because we’re 30 going on about 9. Bring on the snow!

While you fellow East Coast readers hunker down for the storm, I figured it’d be a good day to talk clothes and whet your appetite for some online shopping. 😉 For my latest Stitch Fix review, I’m sharing what I got when I requested edgy pieces and a funky, statement jacket (spoiler alert: they delivered!).

But before I show you all the goods, let’s back it up for those new to Stitch Fix.

Stitch Fix is a styling service that sends you a box (“Fix”) of five items, selected for you based on your preferences. You can set up a regular delivery schedule (monthly, seasonal, etc.) but you don’t have to—no subscription is required and you can pick and choose when to receive a Fix. You pay a $20 styling fee, which is applied towards anything you keep. If you keep all five items you get a 25% discount on the entire purchase. If you send back all five items, you are still charged that $20 BUT for the rest of the month, they’re actually waiving that styling fee for first timers! In order to take advantage of that, just use any link to Stitch Fix throughout this post.

Stitch Fix carries women’s sizes 0-24W and XS-3X, maternity and petite, and they even have a men’s service (check out Joe’s fix here). They carry over 1,000 brands, so they have options at every budget (when you create a style profile, you can specify what that is). I always find my fixes are a good mix of brands I know and love (TOMS, Rails, Citizens of Humanity, etc) and brands that are new to me. I was actually introduced to Level 99 jeans through Stitch Fix and now have five pairs! Clearly a fan. 😉

If you’re interested in trying out Stitch Fix, schedule a delivery by the end of the month with THIS LINK so that you don’t have to pay a styling fee. That way it’s totally risk-free. Don’t like anything you get? Just send it back, no charge.

Stitch Fix Review

Each time you schedule a fix, you have the opportunity to leave a note for your stylist. If you have an event coming up, a designer you’re loving or a specific wardrobe need, it’s a great way to guide the direction of your fix. I didn’t have a specific occasion in mind, but I was looking for edgier pieces. When I don’t keep an item in my fixes, it’s usually because they’re a little too plain for my liking. Don’t get me wrong—I love basics. But I like pieces with a small twist or something to make them unique. I also like having statement pieces to make my casual getups a little more fun.

So for this fix, I asked for edgy pieces and specifically a funky jacket. I’m a jeans-and-a-tank girl most the time, and statement jackets are an easy way to ramp that look up a notch.

When I told my stylist I wanted a funky jacket, I didn’t give specifics but the visual I had in mind was a fluffy faux fur coat of some sort. Well check me out, just casually manifesting the wardrobe of my dreams (lol).

Chooka Metallic Coated Sweater – CATHERINE by Catherine Malandrino ($68)

When I saw the metallic material I was worried this piece would be stiff and itchy but quite the opposite. The inside is soft and the material falls in a flattering way when worn.

Farra Iridescent Splatter Skinny Jeans – Level 99 ($128)

Level 99 is a brand of jeans that I was first introduced to years ago through Stitch Fix, and I think I have about five pairs of their pants now. I love the fit and they have enough stretch to them to be comfortable. The metallic splatter detail on the bottom of these makes them a fun step up from regular black jeans.

Monika Knit Top – 525 America ($93)

The white seams on this t-shirt are super cute. You can’t tell because I have it tucked into my skirt here, but the bottom hem also has some fun cut-out details.

Siv Off The Shoulder Pullover – Elan ($68)

Love this piece! Probably tied for “favorite” with the faux fur jacket. It’s super soft and comfy and can be worn off both shoulders or you can tilt it so there’s one exposed shoulder. And I love that it’s long enough to pair with leggings. You could dress that combo down with combat boots or ballet flats or dress it up with over-the-knee boots.

And there you have it! Loved this fix and kept all five pieces. Again, if you’re interested in trying Stitch Fix, now is the time. Your $20 styling fee is waived with my link until the end of the month. 🙂

Which piece is your favorite from this fix? Fellow Stitch Fix lovers, get anything awesome recently?

Stitch Fix Review: November

Stitch Fix Review: NovemberI usually wait a little longer between fixes (you can check out my October review here), but going on now until the end of January, Stitch Fix is waiving the styling fee on your first fix and I wanted to spread the word! I guess I could have spread the word without getting a shipment of clothing for myself but shhhh. 😉

Normally, there is a $20 styling fee when you schedule a fix. If you keep at least one thing from the five items you receive, that $20 fee is deducted from the price of the clothing so it’s basically like it didn’t even exist. If, however, you send all five items back, you are still charged that $20 fee. I get that can be a bit of a deterrent for first-timers, especially as it can admittedly take a fix or two for your stylist to really nail your style. So now’s the time to give Stitch Fix a try if you’ve been curious about the service—no styling fee, no risk.

To take advantage of the waived styling fee, make sure to use this referral link (or any Stitch Fix link throughout the blog post). It’ll bring you to their home page and you’ll see a banner at the top saying “Your 1st Styling Fee Is on Us!”

November Stitch Fix Review

Keepers

Bonay Fringe Detail Duster Cardigan by Central Park West ($138)

Stitch Fix Review: November - fringe detail duster cardiganStitch Fix Review: November - fringe detail duster cardigan

I requested a duster-length cardigan in this month’s fix and my stylist did not disappoint! I love the fringe details and the fit of the material. Keeper! Stitch Fix Review: November - fringe detail duster cardigan Stitch Fix Review: November - fringe detail duster cardigan

scarf and jeans are from old fixes and boots are Sam Edelman (old but these new ones are similar in suede)

*Almost* Keepers

I ended up only keeping the above cardigan, but some debate when into the decision.

Santeen Cable Knit Pullover by Line and Dot ($68)

I was really into this sweater. The material was so soft and cozy and I loved the pattern of the knit. I wanted to keep it, but I already have a very similar gray sweater in my closet and just couldn’t justify it.

booties are from Aldo (old, similar style/price by Dolce Vita) and leggings are from Primark (not available on their website but I just got them so they’re probably still in stores and ridiculously cheap) – similar style/price at Forever21

Samaria Off the Shoulder Ribbed Knit Dress by Line and Dot ($78)

Stitch Fix Review: November - bell sleeve off the shoulder dress

When I took this out of the box I was excited because I have a wedding in February to go to and at first glance this seemed perfect. It’s very cute on and I’m all about the current bell sleeves trend, but every time I moved in it, the material would bunch up around my midsection (it’s a very stretchy, thicker fabric). Maybe a size down would have worked better for me (I would probably suggest sizing down if you’re going to request it in your fix), but I could just see myself spending the whole night tugging at and adjusting the dress so I ultimately decided to return it.

Also, just a note that Stitch Fix does offer an exchange option. Had I been absolutely in love with this dress, I could have exchanged for a size down if needed.

shoes are Aminah Abdul Jillil – pricey, but I invested in a pair a few years ago and LOVE busting them out on special occasions – lots of color options, too

Watch Tower Button Sleeve Sweatshirt Dress by Bailey44 ($198)

Stitch Fix Review: November - button sleeve sweatshirt dress

Eeeek. Maybe if the dress was longer the banded hem wouldn’t look so unflattering, but … my shoulders go straight down to the bottom of my butt. Not my best look (lol). The quality of the dress is very high—so, so soft—but the fit doesn’t work for me.

I requested a sweatshirt dress in this fix because I *finally* got a pair of over-the-knee boots that actually fit my legs and I want to rock this look and pretend I’m as cool as Hailey Baldwin: 

I think the key is an open hem instead of a banded hem. The hunt for a sweatshirt dress continues!

Everitt Cold Shoulder Knit Top by Nine Britton ($46)

Stitch Fix Review: November - camo shirt with cut out shoulders

Love camo, love cut-outs, can’t do banded waists. They create a sort of bubble from my boobs to my hips with no shape in between.



So I only kept one item, but still excited for my next fix. Honestly, as we go into holiday shopping season, it’s probably best I didn’t want to buy all five (lol). If you haven’t tried Stitch Fix, again, here’s the link to schedule your first fix without a styling fee. Woop woop!

October Stitch Fix Review

Olivia Lace Up Sweater by Rails from my October Stitch Fix Review

I got a great fix this month and am excited to share my October Stitch Fix review with you. For anyone new to Stitch Fix, it’s essentially on online styling service. Their stylists mail five items to you and you can keep or return whatever you’d like. If you keep the whole fix, you get 25% off. I’ve been using Stitch Fix with varying frequency for years now and love it. A lot of the items in my closet that get worn most frequently have actually come from fixes. And the longer you work with your stylist, the better s/he gets to know you, and the more personalized your fixes become.

Kimberli Embroidered Sleeve Knit Sweatshirt by Hazel – $58

I love the embroidered sleeves on the sweatshirt and have already gotten so many compliments on it. It’s a light material—somewhere between a t-shirt and a sweatshirt—so you can wear it with just a bra underneath as a shirt during this transitional fall weather.


Madeline Faux Leather Moto Jacket by Noisy May – $58

If there weren’t that 25%-off incentive to keep all five items, I probably would have returned this jacket. It’s super cute and I’m glad it’s faux leather, but the material is really plastic. Like when I move my arms it makes a squeezing sound. Love the way it looks though, so I’ll definitely still get some use out of it!

Marley Fringe Infinity Scarf by Octavia – $34

Octavia fringe infinity scarf from my October Stitch Fix review

I love this deep red color for fall and winter and the scarf is made from the softest, coziest fabric. I now think I have a solid scarf collection, so after keeping this one, I went into my Style Profile on Stitch Fix and changed my preferences so that I’ll no longer receive scarfs. Love how easy it is to customize your fixes as your closet needs change!

Skylar Back Seam High Rise Step Hem Skinny Jean by Level 99 – $102

Olivia Lace Up Sweater by Rails from my October Stitch Fix ReviewSkylar Back Seam High Rise Step Hem Skinny Jean by Level 99 from my October Stitch Fix reviewLace-up crop tank with high waist jeans and plaid button-up

Over the years, Stitch Fix has sent me several pairs of jeans from this Level 99 brand and I think I’ve kept every single one. They’re just stretchy enough to be comfortable and are so reasonably priced! I’m digging the uneven hem trend so these were a definite keeper.

Olivia Lace Up Sweater by Rails – $248

Olivia Lace Up Sweater by Rails from my October Stitch Fix Review Olivia Lace Up Sweater by Rails from my October Stitch Fix Review

I LOVE this cashmere sweater (and pretty much everything else Rails makes). It’s soft with velvet ties lacing up the front and something I’d wear all the time. When I saw the price tag though, I almost didn’t even try it on. I do, however, have a quality over quantity approach to my closet these days, and after doing the math and having lengthy conversations with myself, I managed to justify keeping it. 😉

The total for the fix is $500, and with the 25% discount for keeping all five it’d be $375. That’s still a little too much for me to spend on clothes, but I happened to have some Stitch Fix credit that brought it down closer to $250 so I decided to treat myself this month.

If you haven’t tried Stitch Fix yet, you can set up your profile and schedule your first fix HERE. When you set up your profile, you can pick the price ranges that work for you, so don’t be put off by the sweater in mine. I reduced the frequency of my fixes and made my price ranges a little more lenient because I do occasionally like to spend the extra money for a high quality brand.

Have you tried Stitch Fix? Gotten any good fixes recently?

I’ll leave you with these outtakes—who do I think I am? Maria from Sound of Music? The hills are aliiiiiiiive …
