Stylin’ My Stitch Fix (Review of Fix #9)

Market & Spruce Corinna Striped Dolman Top from Stitch FixOops–totally forgot I had this post in my drafts! I’ve actually already gotten another fix since these pictures, but the batch of new clothes in last month’s Stitch Fix rocked. Let’s play catch-up!

If you’re new to these posts, check out the review of my first fix—it has all the details on Stitch Fix, the online styling service I’ve been using for almost a year now.

Market & Spruce Corinna Striped Dolman Top $48 = KEEPER

Is it bad that a major requirement for me to buy a shirt these days is that it’s long enough to be worn with leggings? Have I let myself go? Oh well. :) This shirt is so soft, and I love that it’s long enough to wear with a pair of black leggings. For all of you who wear real pants, it could easily be dressed up as well.

Jeans are from my last fix! (similar here & here)
Booties are from Zara (old but similar here & here)

Gorjana Corinna Delicate Bar Necklace $60 = KEEPER

Keeping a pricier piece of jewelry is very uncharacteristic of me. Maybe I’m just getting old, but I’m sick of buying cheap $5 necklaces and having them break a month later. Why not invest a little extra in this classic, delicate gold necklace that I’ll get a ton of use from and is actually of quality, right? Gorjana Corinna Delicate Bar Necklace from Stitch Fix

Mavi Freida Tall Skinny Jean $98 = KEEPER

Gahhh I’m powerless when Stitch Fix sends me a pair of pants. How do they all fit so well??! Had to keep these gray skinnies.

Mystree Gerrie Open Stitch Sweater $68 = KEEPER

I have some similar sweaters, but what made me keep this one are the brown hues in it. I’m a black, black, gray, and more black girl when it comes to clothes, and as a result never have anything to wear with my brown and tan shoes.

Laila Jayde Jaspers Split Neck Knit Shirt $68 = NO GO

This shirt was the only item I sent back. It fit well and I liked the button details on the sleeve, but it just wasn’t quite “me”. The flair sleeves and split neck gave it a little too much of a hippie vibe. Laila Jayde Jaspers Split Neck Knit Shirt from Stitch Fix

Styling My Latest Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix - Remi Distressed Skinny JeanI had a couple “meh” fixes where I only kept one or two items, and then BOOM. Came back from Australia to this glorious box of Stitch Fix goodies waiting at my doorstep. This ended up being a pricier fix (prices listed are before the 25% discount you get for keeping all five items), but I had some Stitch Fix referral credit to cover the cost, so I decided to YOLO it. That’s what two weeks of vacation will do: turn “YOLO” into a verb.

If you want to request any of the items for your next fix, I have the product names listed. You can also pin any image to the Pinterest style board you have linked to your Stitch Fix account and the item name should automatically populate in the pin. The non-Stitch Fix clothing details are listed below the pictures.

Peyton Woven Vest by Monoreno $64

I think this will be a great piece for spring! Once the weather is warmer, I think it’d be cute to pair with a white crop top and high-waisted shorts. The zipper detailing adds a little edge, and there are top and bottom drawstrings so that you can really play around with ways to wear it.

Also wearing Aldo wedges (mine are old–I found similar but ridiculously expensive ones here) & Icebreaker longsleeve

Remi Distressed Skinny Jean by Level 99 $98

Meet my new favorite jeans. For this fix, I had requested some ripped skinny jeans, and it’s like my stylist read my mind—literally exactly what I was picturing. Do I need yet another pair of black skinny jeans? I guess not. Yes. Yes I do. These are different from the others, guy. I swear. Stitch Fix - Remi Distressed Skinny Jean Stitch Fix - Remi Distressed Skinny Jean Stitch Fix - Remi Distressed Skinny Jean

Also wearing Jeffrey Campbell booties (similar here), Brandy Melville t-shirt (similar here), Faux leather jacket from LIT Boutique (similar here), Quay sunglasses (similar here) & Icebreaker hat

Ridge Zipper Detail Cowl Neck Sweater by RD Style $64

I love that this sweater is tunic-length. It’s perfect to pair with leggings for a cozy day working at a coffee shop or running errands. The zipper sleeves and uneven hemming add a little edge to it. Stitch Fix - Ridge Zipper Detail Cowl Neck Sweater Stitch Fix - Ridge Zipper Detail Cowl Neck Sweater Stitch Fix - Ridge Zipper Detail Cowl Neck Sweater

Also wearing Nasty Gal faux leather leggings (similar here), Icebreaker hat & Necessary Clothing combat boot

Glenda Distressed Straight Leg Jean by Level 99 $128

Had I not been in YOLO mode, I probably would have sent these back simply because I already have some similar jeans. But the fit. It’s like they were made for me, and I love the way they make my butt look. At the end of the day, isn’t that what really matters?? 😉

Messi Lattice Neckline Knit Top by Pixley $68

I forgot to style this one (oops!), but I love how soft and flowy the top is. Strappy details are “in” right now. Even with its strong points, I’d say this tank was a strategic keep—if there wasn’t that 25% discount for buying all five items I probably would have returned it. I find that tops with a seam across the top of the chest make my boobs look weird.

How to Get a Good Fix

In addition to the “OMG I love Stitch Fix, too!” comments I get on these posts, I also hear the occasional complaint of a fix that was a total bust. Of course there’s a bit of luck that goes into these things as style and taste are more of an art than science, but I do think there are a few things you can do to greatly improve your chances of getting a fix you love.

1. Create a style board on Pinterest and link it to your Stitch Fix account. When you set up your Stitch Fix profile, there’s space to link to a Pinterest board. Do it! And if you don’t already have a fashion/style board, make one. It’s a great way for your SF stylist to get an idea of what clothing appeals to you. My stylist frequently refers to pins she sees on my Fashion board in the notes she includes in my fixes; I recently pinned a picture of a girl wearing burgundy pants and guess what I just got…stitch-fix-outfits-styled-3

2. Leave detailed feedback. When you check out online after receiving your fix, there’s space to leave feedback about each item you’re keeping or returning. Hated that shirt? Tell them why. Loved the scarf? Also tell them why. Your fixes will be more accurate as your stylist gets to know you better. Last time I told my stylist I was sending back a pencil skirt because I wouldn’t get much use out of it as I don’t work an office job and tend to wear casual clothing. Based on this fix, she totally listened! stitch-fix-outfits-styled-13

3. Request items you like. Whether it’s an item your friend got in a fix, a piece from a blog post like this, or something you spot on Stitch Fix’s Instagram, don’t be afraid to request specific items. There’s not a guarantee you’ll get them because of availability, but at the very least, it will give your stylist an idea of what kinds of pieces you’d like to see in a fix. You can request an item by leaving a note to your stylist in your SF account, or you can pin items to your Pinterest board. All the pics in this post are pinnable for that very reason!stitch-fix-outfits-styled-16 stitch-fix-outfits-styled-9 stitch-fix-outfits-styled-6

 Which item is your favorite from my fix? Would you have kept any of them yourself? Current Stitch Fix users–any tips to add for getting a great fix?
