Stitch Fix Review October 2016: What I loved, what I’m keeping, and what you should request (plus a giveaway)!
It’s Stitch Fix Review time again! Big decision at the end of this review. Lately I’ve had mixed feelings about my Stitch Fix deliveries…….so I’m going to be switching things up a bit. For this fix, I requested some pretty specific items. I asked for fall colors, a pair of burgundy shoes, patterned pants, and great layering pieces.

In case you aren’t already a Stitch Fix nut…….a bit about the service: Stitch Fix is a personalized styling service that sends five pieces to your doorstep. The great thing? When you join, you fill out an extensive styling profile. You can request certain items or even ask for options for a specific event. You choose how often you get a fix (for me it’s once a month). In the comfort of your own home, you try on all items. Then you keep what you love, and send back the rest…..and all with free shipping! There is a $20 styling fee, but you can use that $20 as a credit towards any of the items you keep. And YES, you can set a price range you feel comfortable with.
What did I get in my October Stitch Fix delivery?
Stitch Fix Review October 2016
RD Style Tawny Open Drape Cardigan (size small, kept): This cardigan just screamed fall layering to me. I love it. The colors? The thickness? It’s very flattering, and goes with EVERYTHING. Kept, and I’ve already worn it WAY too many times.
Market & Spruce Telane Faux Leather Detail Knit Top (size medium, returned): Ok, here’s the thing. The fit of this top? AWESOME. But my stylist seemed to forget one major request….I wanted clothes for work. This sheer portion of the top? Clearly not work appropriate and I hate layering camisoles under tops. While I loved the cut of this, it just wasn’t something I felt like I could wear very often.Papermoon Ibiza Crochet Detail Top (size medium, returned): I wanted to love this top. In theory, a washable blouse is perfect for my life. However…..see the wrinkles? I steamed it right before I took these pictures. This fabric wrinkles SO easily. Plus, it hit at a funny length. When I saw this on the hanger, I loved it. In real life? Not so much.Lucky Brand Aviee Lace Up Flat (size 9 1/2, returned): So these flats were NOT the color I requested. They were comfortable…..and I considered keeping them, but the loose lacing? Drove me crazy. Flats are always a win in my book….but these just weren’t quite right.
My last item? The Margaret M Sylvie Printed Straight Leg Pant. I wish I could show them to you guys….but they didn’t fit. As in, I literally couldn’t get them over my hips.
So, here’s the deal. Lately, I’ve been feeling as if my stylist and I aren’t seeing eye to eye. I’ve requested things, and receive stuff that I don’t love. So, I’ll be trying out a NEW stylist next month. Remember when I suggested trying a new stylist if you weren’t loving your fixes? Yup, I’m doing it myself and I can’t WAIT to see what I get next month!
