Hello! I hope you are all having a great Tuesday so far. Mine has been pretty busy. I love it.
I’m currently coming to you from a Panera Bread on a break before I go to the gym for training. I love when I can get free wi-fi, coffee, and a healthy, substantial meal all in the same place. #bloggersdream
Anyways, before I get off topic, I have another month of fashion goodies to share with you. Here we go!
December 2014 Stitch Fix Breakdown
Almost every month, I receive a box from Stitch Fix (<- affiliate link), which is an online styling service I have blogged about several times.
For those of you who haven’t heard of it, you must be new around here. Hi, and welcome! Oh, and you can read more about how it all works here.
The short version of what these “fixes” entail:
• Sign up for the service and fill out an online styling profile.
• Receive your “fix” in the mail.
• Keep what you want, return what you don’t, and checkout online.
Fun, right? This month’s fix included:
These Towne & Reese Kassidy Sunburst Drop Earrings: $28.
This Skies are Blue Riley Embroidered Trim Top: $48.
This Liverpool Mira Skinny Pull-On Jean: $78.
This Papermoon Jonie 3/4 Sleeve Chevron Print Elastic Waist Henley Dress: $64.
And this Skies are Blue Tory Textured Button Front Shirt: $48.
Oh, Stitch Fix. We’ve been on such a great road together this year… but, I have to admit that I was disappointed with my fix this time. Just like last month’s, I just don’t feel like the style was me.
I ended up keeping two items, mostly because I had referral credits sitting in my account. (Thanks, guys!) Can you guess which items?
I was mostly bothered with the materials this go around.
The dress fit like a glove (which I loved), but the material felt cheap. Not worth the $64 price tag, anyways.
It’s a shame too… because it was super comfortable.
The next thing I tried on was the pair of pull-on skinny jeans.
I didn’t think I would like them at first, but then I remembered how in love I was with my last pair of high waisted skinny jeans from Stitch Fix. Plus, this pair has elastic to pull-on, which is essentially a comfy early to mid pregnancy pant… when that day comes around.
I paired it with the textured button front shirt, but knew what I was focusing on right away (the jeans). Once again, not a fan of the material of the top here. It came wrinkled, and… it kind of reminded me of my grandmother’s couch. Neither one of those things are a great sign.
I kept the jeans on and tried the embroidered trim top on next.
Meh, it just didn’t do anything for me. You can’t really tell here because I have my hand on my hip, but it felt very baggy and unflattering. I also didn’t care for where the sleeves hit my arm. I don’t know… I just didn’t really like this item.
I decided to keep the jeans! I thought they were overpriced, but the quality felt good. I have been looking for a really thick skinny jean/jegging for a quite a while and loved the fit and feel of this pair.
I also kept the earrings! For $28, they are a great addition to my collection of accessories. I can use them to dress my outfits up or down and love the dark green color.
Stitch Fix boxes have always been a hit or miss for me. Even though I got two great items out of this one, I just don’t feel like the stylists are getting my style lately. This really bums me out, because I have had some really great fixes in the past!
After making my returns this month, I made sure to check out with a lot of notes. I updated my style profile on their website and also started pinning a lot more of my exact style wishes to my Pinterest fashion board. I decided to skip my fix next month and will be revisiting the service in February.
I always enjoy the simple pleasure of receiving a box full of fashion surprises at my doorstep, so whether I keep the entire box of items or nothing at all, I still do enjoy the service. Let’s just hope my next fix is a little more me!
