Stitch Fix Review: 12th Fix

Disclosure:  I paid for my own Stitch Fix; all opinions are my own.  If you're interested in trying Stitch Fix, I'd love for you to use my referral link so I can get $25 towards my next Fix!

I started receiving Stitch Fix boxes back in March 2015, and I can't believe I'm already on my 12th Fix recap!  Looking back at my previous fixes, I realize that I still love getting these boxes, when I have the budget for them.  It's so nice to have someone curating clothing items for me, vs. going to the store.  To be honest, with the weight I've gained over the past year or so, shopping in-store has had me disappointed in terms of selection.  Online shopping has always provided more size options in each style.  That said, it sucks to comb multiple sites to find a bunch of pieces that I need.  Stitch Fix doesn't require me to work for it, which it probably why I'm still loyal.

I've had success when I add items to my Pinterest board that I provide my stylist, and when I keep my size profile updated.  I had a couple of frustrating fixes, and I realized that it was because my sizes were not current.  Unless Stitch Fix is playing with me by using the same stylist's name over and over, I believe I've been working with the same girl for nearly two years now.  The longer I've used the service, the more I feel like she "gets" my preferences and what I like.  This box was definitely evidence of that, because (spoiler alert) I loved it.

Le Lis Kano Textured Knit Dress

I really loved this Le Lis dress.  You can't see it well in the image, but it has a beautiful texture.  I loved that it easily pulled on over my head (no zipper struggles!), and the fabric felt luxe.  It's going to be the perfect work dress for travel, since I don't need help zipping.  I wore it to my cousin's baby shower, and the fit & flare silhouette was flattering for sure.  Price felt steep, but it was a beautiful dress.  KEPT.

41Hawthorn Henderson Tie Neck Blouse

I love bow-tie blouses, and I love mustard yellow.  So this top, while not 100% the most flattering cut all-around, still looked freaking adorable.  I tied the bow in my selfie, but I wear it like the actual Stitch Fix picture instead.  I was probably a little on the fence about this one, especially for the price, but (another spoiler) it was worth keeping given the discount I could get for the whole box.  KEPT.

Pixley Jacobsen Textured Knit Dress

I loved this dress.  I actually think I will wear it a lot in the spring, given it was a lighter fabric vs. a heavy ponte knit.  Love the pattern, and the black and white!  It was a flattering fit, too.  I would have kept this one no matter what, given the price.  KEPT.

Skies are Blue Bathilda Cutout Detail Blouse

This blouse was probably my least favorite item in the box.  It looks cute, and the cut-outs and color are neat, but the fit/feel wasn't the best of the bunch.  When I did end up wearing it, I got quite a few compliments.  I think that the color is my style, and the blouse was a good one to keep after all.  KEPT.

Tart Kearsley Knit Blazer

I live in comfy blazers.  Ponte knits are my fav.  My stylist warned me that this piece was as splurge.  When I look online, Tart knit blazers run $120-160.  Once I put the blazer on, I didn't want to take it off.  It's comfy enough to sleep in, but looks office-appropriate.  In fact, I wore it with black pants on election day to represent #PantsuitNation.  (Bittersweet, to be sure.)  The only downside to this piece is that it is Dry Clean only, but I recently found a good cleaner on my commute that makes it easy.  After all, you gotta protect investment pieces!  I'm definitely gonna keep an eye out on Nordstrom Rack to see if any of these blazers make it there on sale, because I can't afford to buy these in every fix!  KEPT.

The total price for all five items was $386, but that was reduced by 25% since I kept all of the items.  With tax, styling fee, and everything else, I paid $296.28 total, which averages to about $59 per item.  That's not cheap.  But given the quality of the items (think Nordstrom, not H&M) and the convenience factor, I felt like it was worth the expense.  I find myself reaching for my favorite Stitch Fix items over and over, especially comfy blazers and layering pieces.  This is only my 5th Fix of 2016, so you can see how I've switched my scheduling around based on budget.  :)  Thanks for stopping by for this recap!
