Stitch Fix Review #13: November 2015

My Stitch Fix box arrived on my doorstep FOUR days early! That pretty much never happens and I’m still stunned by my good fortune. Who said 13 was unlucky? Certainly it wasn’t for me (spoiler: I kept it all)! Plus, fix 13 hit that sweet spot where I have enough items to create multiple cute outfits by mixing and matching across my fixes. Ahhhh, I’m so obsessed.

Look at the colors! Plus, I spy elephants!

Never heard of Stitch Fix? Briefly, Stitch Fix is a styling subscription service in which you fill out a profile (sizes, styles, and price point) and receive a customized fix of 5 items (clothes/accessories) delivered right to your doorstep. There is a $20 styling fee but it’s credited towards anything you keep. Keeping all 5 items gives you a 25% discount, which is awesome when it happens. You dictate the frequency of your fixes. If you’d like to try it, I have a referral link here and also at the end of this post and if you sign up through my link I get a small commission at no cost to you. Yay!

Let’s get on with my 13th Stitch Fix Review (my 10th fix with my amazing stylist, Katie)!

In this fix, I received:

  1. Level 99 Jessa Wide Leg Denim Trouser, 4P, navy, $118 ($89 with discount)
  2. Pixley Ellie Printed 3/4 Blouse, XS, black, $48 ($36)
  3. Pixley Nilla Button Back Sweater, XS, navy, $68 ($51)
  4. Market & Spruce Sawyer Space Dye Dolman Sleeve Knit Top, XS, burgundy, $58 ($44)
  5. Urban Expressions Elisha Zipper Accent Structured Satchel, red, $58 ($44)

Here’s my note from Katie:

When I saw “wide-leg denim” I have to admit, I was a bit unsure whether they’d be flattering or make my legs look really wide.

This is the perfect example of why you should try everything on. I tried the jeans on with the Ellie Elephant blouse.

YOU GUYS!!! Literally EVERYONE wants this blouse. I couldn’t believe it was in my box. I pinned it a while ago, although I hadn’t been holding my breath since it’s so popular. But now here I am sporting elephants! This blouse is just as much fun as everyone says!  I also put on the 31 Bits Nikalia Multi-Layer Beaded Necklace I got in my 5th fix but I think this outfit might need a bolder, more colorful statement necklace (which I don’t have yet).

And the back:

These jeans are really, really comfortable and also flattering. This is the second pair of Level 99s I’m keeping, so the brand seems to fit me well. I am so happy because other than KUT jeans, I was not having the same amazing Stitch Fix jeans experience that people always rave about.

Next up, the Pixley Nilla Button Back Sweater.

I thought the color of this sweater would look nice with the burgundy Level 99 Charley Zipper Coated Skinny Jeans from my last fix! (These jeans are everything – get them in your closet right now!). Wow is this sweater soft! It’s also quite warm for a medium-weight sweater. Although the texture is super cute, the solid navy looked a bit plain, so I added a pop of color with the Octavia Beau Fringe Infinity Scarf I bought off of a Stitch Fix Buy/Sell/Trade board. I think a plaid scarf would also be fun, especially if it had a touch of burgundy to tie in with the jeans. Maybe Katie will find one for me.

This sweater also looked great with the Margaret M Emer Polka Dot Print Hight Waisted Cropped Pants from my 8th fix and the Octavia Francesca Mini Dot Scarf from my 4th fix. Plus it was the perfect outfit for highlighting the Urban Expressions Elisha Zipper Accent Structured Satchel that I just received.

The back of this sweater is my favorite thing about it.

So, I have no jewelry and no bags checked in my style profile. Mostly because I’m really picky about those things (and I don’t need a large quantity). But when I find items I like, I pin them and Katie totally pays attention to that. She sent the 31 bits necklace and this satchel based on my pins. Look at the inside of this bag! How cute are those polka dots?! Also, you can see it has a strap for cross-body use, which I love.

Honestly, I was surprised to see this satchel in my fix. I had pinned it last spring in a different color, so I had kind of forgotten about it. The red will be beautiful for the holidays and I love this bag so much, I might request whatever color is on trend this coming spring.

Speaking of requesting the same item in another color, I had pinned this Market & Spruce Sawyer Space Dye Dolman Sleeve Knit Top in burgundy and pretty much BEGGED for it in the pin comment. Katie sent me the top in green in my last fix, and I adored it so much that I let her know I still wanted the burgundy. And she delivered!

The pants are KUT from the Kloth Brayden Cargo Skinnys I received via a trade in a Stitch Fix Buy/Sell Trade group.

Sorry to leave you with my back end, ha!

Katie is really nailing my fixes now and, as mentioned above, I kept EVERYTHING and got the discount! If you’d like to give Stitch Fix a try and don’t mind using this link, I’ll get a $25 referral credit towards my next fix once yours ships. And that would be awesome.

(I have no affiliation with Stitch Fix other than a referral code. I buy these clothes myself and all opinions are mine).

    Love the back of that sapphire colored sweater too! And the army green skinny pants! Have you heard of Trunk. My daughter does that one and she’s received some cool stuff.

    • StacieNovember 7, 2015 at 2:01 pm #

      I have! I am currently waiting for my second trunk! I love surprises :)

  2. Andrea@WellnessNotesNovember 7, 2015 at 1:49 pm #

    Awesome fix! Of course you kept everything!!!

    I love that you tried the wide-leg denim, which you may have not tried if it hadn’t been in your stitch fix box. It looks great!

    I think I almost enjoy these posts as much as you enjoy getting the box! :-)

    • StacieNovember 7, 2015 at 2:02 pm #

      Thanks Andrea! That’s one of the things I love about doing this – being surprised by something I’d never try on in a store!

  3. Joe OrmerodNovember 7, 2015 at 4:42 pm #

    Wow, my wife would LOVE this…which is exactly why I’m not telling her! LOL
    As a guy with next to zero fashion sense, I’ll say I like the sapphire sweater with the red scarf and bag as my favorite look. But what do I know?!?

    • StacieNovember 8, 2015 at 10:27 am #

      You should give your wife a gift certificate for her birthday! That’s how I got started. I am sure my husband had no idea the monster that would unleash!

  4. Nancy LowellNovember 7, 2015 at 5:23 pm #

    This is so cool, I can’t do this right now, but am sending this along to a friend who will LOVE it!

    • StacieNovember 8, 2015 at 10:28 am #

      It’s really fun! I don’t think it’s going anywhere so just wait until you are ready!

  5. soapieNovember 7, 2015 at 5:38 pm #

    whoa, you’re styling! i think i’m not brave enough to try stitch fix- i don’t keep anything unless i reaaaaally like it, but it’s cool to read your post and see how everything worked for you. you’re a model! =D

    • StacieNovember 8, 2015 at 10:29 am #

      Thank you! I’m trying to be better about not just living in sweats and yoga pants all the time :)

  6. BeerayNovember 7, 2015 at 9:12 pm #

    Oooooo. I so love this. Wish I had something like that here. Love the blue sweater, especially the back. That’s so unique

    • StacieNovember 8, 2015 at 10:29 am #

      I wish this were available to everyone too. It’s so fun!

  7. SusieNovember 7, 2015 at 11:50 pm #

    Sounds and looks amazing – well done you!! X

    • StacieNovember 8, 2015 at 10:34 am #

      :)

    I liked your fix and love the Dolman and Green Skinnies. You don’t really tell price, which I like to know before requesting in my fix. Also, do you allow us to Pin your pix on our Pinterest board?

    • StacieNovember 8, 2015 at 10:34 am #

      The prices are all listed at the beginning of the post. I put both the retail price and also the price with the 25% buy-all discount (which is what I paid this time). Also, you can select a price range–one of the options is “as cheap as possible.” Stitch Fix lists the average price per item as $55. Mine are usually between $35-100. I am happy for anyone to pin any photo. They are out on the internet already 😉

    Great outfits! Love the button-back sweater. I had never heard of Stitch Fix… I’ll have to check it out.

    • StacieNovember 9, 2015 at 4:53 pm #

      You should! It’s very addicting though.

  10. Michelle LongoNovember 10, 2015 at 6:43 am #

    They do have cute stuff.

    • StacieNovember 14, 2015 at 1:13 pm #

      It’s dangerous.

  11. Maria Manore GavinNovember 14, 2015 at 11:06 am #

    Hi Stacie! I’m a little jealous of your red bag. I own the green one and I requested the red one recently because I think it’s gorgeous! I received a different red tote but I’m still envious of yours! Thanks for linking up this month!

    • StacieNovember 14, 2015 at 1:15 pm #

      I hope you get the red one! I’m jealous of almost all of your fixes – I almost always pin at least two things from any of your fixes.

  12. Alyssa ChapmanNovember 15, 2015 at 10:31 am #

    I totally just left a comment on another blogger’s fix review about how much I love button back sweaters, especially since I have TWO coming in the fix that will arrive tomorrow. I don’t know what it is… details on the back of a sweater, where there are normally none, is fun! LOVE the tote!

    Thanks for sharing!

    • StacieNovember 22, 2015 at 2:41 pm #

      Wow, two? Lucky! I want the one with the elbow patches too :)

  13. MonicaPNovember 22, 2015 at 10:54 am #

    I just got my lucky number 7 fix and received a beautiful tote (although had to return due to size).

    I really love the burgundy top with the olive pants. I always have a hard time styling olive pants.

    Monica.

    • StacieNovember 22, 2015 at 2:43 pm #

      Thank you! I think lots of colors look good with olive since it’s fairly neutral. Purple, black, navy, yellow, peach are also nice.

  14. LeyannNovember 23, 2015 at 4:37 pm #

    What’s the stitch fix/buy/sell/trade? Is it a website? Can u share the site?
