My 4th Stitch Fix was lots of fun. I had a new stylist this time–Stephanie, and she really listened to my feedback. I specifically asked for pieces in a lower price-range and she seemed to make every effort to do that for me.
Street Level Demi Fold Over Crossbody Bag
This bag was an item I pinned and specifically requested because it’s such a great fall color and a fun style. I’m really a one-bag kinda girl and that one bag is almost always my Better Life Bags Brynnda but now that my girls are a bit older I don’t carry around as much kiddo paraphernalia and every now and then I want something a little smaller– however, one thing the Brynnda has taught me is the beauty of a cross body bag. I love having both of my hands free– and this Demi Fold Over Crossbody Bag is just the right size and shape! Verdict: Kept
Loveappella Cheyanne Printed Maxi Skirt
There *may* have been a little squeal from me when I opened this skirt. At 5′ nothing– I’ve never found a maxi skirt that wasn’t way too long and I could tell immediately that this one would be perfect.
The fabric is so soft and the pattern is flattering. Verdict: Whole-heartedly Kept (And I’ve already worn it several times-Ha!)
Le Lis Polli Lace Detail Knit Top
Ok, this may be one of my favorite items I’ve received so far. (Do I say that often? I feel like I say that often.) The knit top with lace detail makes the perfect combination of casual with a little chic. I know it will be a great layering piece for fall. Verdict: Kept
These next two items I really liked and I would have kept and technically I did in order to get the discount, but I ended up selling them new to someone who was looking for these specific pieces.
En Creme Mai Lace Back Cardigan This cardigan is light and airy, but the stripes would make it go well into Fall, especially here in the South. It was very pretty but way too similar to something I already had. Verdict: Pass
Le Lis Osage Scoop Neck Blouse The soft fabric and navy with orangey-red in this top tempted me to add it to my closet, but it was similar to the THML top from my last fix which I wear often. Verdict: Pass
In the past I have shared with you my policy on product reviews. 100% honesty while still maintaining respect for the company. I have to draw from that today and say that if my 4th Stitch Fix was a complete joy (and it was,) my 5th was a complete disappointment. I made the mistake of not mentioning my hope to have everything within my desired prince range again, and it was absolutely the most expensive fix I have received. The total to keep the entire box would have been $300 (with the buy 5 discount. yikes! Individually, the pieces added up to be nearly $400.)
That being said, I was not overly impressed with anything in the box. I know, #sad. I did keep one item, a pretty awesome pair of black pants– I’ll get to those in a minute– so it was definitely not a total loss.
Pixley Judson Utility Jacket, Dark Grey
Okay. So. To be fair, I pinned a few utility anorak-type jackets in olive green. Sadly, this “jacket” wasn’t really a jacket at all but was really just the weight of a shirt. The color was every bit as drab as it looks, not really brown– but not really grey. At a price of $78– there was no way this little guy was staying. Verdict: Pass.
Pixley Louie Open Drape Cardigan, Grey
This Aztec Cardigan (which I asked for one specifically) was soft, cozy and warm. As in, the type of sweater you could LIVE in. It would look great with a dark skinny jean, or even white jeans and brown boots– It was quite literally the coziest thing in the box. So why didn’t I keep it? It was grey. Again. I have several grey sweaters and this one just didn’t speak to me. In any other color it would have been a keeper– but sadly this was $78 also, and that’s WAY too much for an I guess I like it.. Verdict: Pass
I know, I know– You’re probably all shocked that I’m being so brutally honest. But when I asked for and pinned pretty Fall colors like Wine, Red, Orange, and Mustard I received this:
THML Bresee Scoop Neck Top, White This top from THML was flowy and soft, the print combined Navy with a few other darker colors and it had a fun gold zipper up the back.
I think it would be cute and comfy Fall layering piece. It went back because the fit wasn’t quite comfortable and I also have a lot of Navy and White. Verdict: Pass
Market & Spruce Nanterre Herringbone Blazer, Brown — blazers just aren’t my thing. They remind me a little too much of all those bank teller days. Unfortunately the fit was really off too, very snug through the sleeves and shoulders. And brown, more brown. I’m not certain if it’s missing a pocket on the front, or if it’s a style thing. I think this would be super cute on someone else, it’s just not my stage of life. (Yoga pants jokes aside.) Oh, and you guessed it $78. Again. Sadly, It felt pretty thin and not substantial. Verdict: Pass Womp Womp Womp
Liverpool Rizzo Skinny Pant, Black
Ok–These were AWESOME. They feel like comfy leggings, they pull on with a stretchy waistband and yet still ahem, keep everything in. I love love love them. They are too long so I’m planning to get them hemmed–maybe even to ankle length because I think they will look very French with black ballet flats. THESE were wonderful and worth the fix itself. Even though everything else was drab, sad and slightly disappointing– these pants were a wonderful surprise. Verdict: Kept!!!!! And I forgot to take a photo of these but here’s a photo of them on Pinterest.
I know I’m rarely this negative about well, anything– but especially Stitch Fix. But I honestly felt like they sent me neutral colors when I pinned lots of Fall colors and then blew the prices out of the water. I was really counting on this one to give me a few Fall items–Fall clothes are my favorite.
Honestly though, that is the beauty of Stitch Fix— FEEDBACK IS EVERYTHING. I was as honest as I could be, and I’m certain they will listen to my feedback and my next fix will be much better. If not, I might be taking a little break– but I doubt that will happen. It’s just SO fun… even when it’s not– it is!
