All opinions are my own. I was not compensated for this post.
I forgot to take a picture of the box before I opened it, so this one is from last month when I had a very interested puppy.
Once again, I forgot to open the blinds when I took my pictures (it was dark & rainy anyway), so the colors didn’t come out so well. I promise I have learned that lesson for March, sorry!
Now for the reveal!
I stuck with Jasmine for my 6th Fix and I was not disappointed! Again I asked for more color, and for skirts to wear to work (with a length stipulation). I also asked for a specific leather tote for work.
Tracy Reese: Athena Printed Midi Skirt (Grey)
Style: Love It
Fit/Cut: Love It
Absolutely everything about this skirt was perfect, except for the price. I hadn’t looked at the price sheet yet and was all set to keep it, and then huge disappointment set in. Honestly, I loved the skirt, but I do not think it is worth the price tag – more like $58.00, as it was almost a sweatshirt material and on the thin side. (The length was pretty great at about 29.5″.)
Note: I admittedly had this skirt pinned on my Pinterest board, but didn’t know the price of it – which is a hazard of pinning. I indicated in my feedback that I need to stick to my budget and my specified price points.
Laila Jayde: Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top (Grey)
Style: Like It
Fit/Cut: Like It
There’s not really anything special about this top. I did like it, but the material really isn’t great for TN Summers – it was sweater-ish.
As I was considering keeping the skirt at this point (w/o looking at the price), I felt I had a more comfortable top to wear in this one below from Old Navy (just like the plum top I wore in my 1st Fix pics).
41Hawthorn: McQue Solid Lace Sleeve Blouse (Jewel Tone Purple)
Style: Hate It
Fit/Cut: Like It
Note: My Pinterest board has a few pins that literally say “HATE” on them with some details about what I don’t like. This lace detail trend is one of the things I do not like and have pinned with notes. I have also updated my profile since this Fix to indicate “no lace.”
Aside from not liking the lace detail AT ALL, I loved both the color and material of this top. This is a perfect fabric for TN Summers. The color is one that I have been aching to see all along and I’m so glad I finally got to see it! The price for this top was right on point. However, like so many others, this shirt did not fit in the shoulders and was very tight across my bust. You can see in the front picture how it hangs straight off of my bust all the way down.
Just USA: Anjuli Dark Wash Denim Jacket (Blue)
Style: Just OK
Fit/Cut: Hate It
Once again I got an outerwear piece I didn’t ask for and don’t need. I already own a denim jacket which I love, and I HATE this dark wash. Jasmine had indicated in her notes that she was building outfits around the skirt and this added the fun night out aspect – which I can see. It really isn’t my personal taste, however. It also didn’t fit, in really odd ways. The arms were plenty long, almost too long. The waist was super short, which I really don’t like. And, of course the upper arms and shoulders were super tight – there was no buttoning this jacket!
Street Level: Parvin Colorblock Tote (Cognac)
Style: Like It
Fit/Cut: Like It
This is the tote that I requested, only a variation. The one I preferred was solid color white/camel reversible, seen here. This one is camel/black and black solid reversible. Both versions include the separate matching bag. Regardless of the color combo, I like this a lot and it will be the perfect professional tote for work that I was looking for.
Final Thoughts: I went 1/5 on my 6th Fix, but would have gone 2/5 if not for the price of that skirt! Unlike last Fix, I wasn’t terribly happy with the four clothing items when I first pulled them out of the box, but then once I read Jasmine’s note with her ideas and started trying things on I was much more interested in them (still not the denim jacket). I am sticking with Jasmine, as I am building a trust with her, which is helpful. I’m still totally invested in this service for now, even though all of my Fixes have been 1/5. For me, this is mainly due to fit issues, as I am at the tip top of their sizing. But for an average or even small person, there is just so much variety available. They even carry petite and maternity sizing! I have also found that the anticipation of my monthly Fix is keeping me out of the stores, which is a major plus!
BONUS UPDATE: Remember these pants from Fix #3? I had been watching them on Amazon and on Feb 14 they were on sale for $44.12, which is half off of the original price! I had to jump on that sale – I was so on the fence about buying them in the first place. I bought them in the larger 16/33 size than the 14/32 that was sent in my Fix and they fit just perfectly! I’m so pleased I kept an eye on those!
Enough from me, what do you think? Did I keep/return the right items? More importantly, are you ready to try Stitch Fix out for yourself?!?! I’d love for you to use my referral link, as I’ll get a $25 credit towards my Fixes when your first Fix ships. Please let me know if you have any questions/comments for me – I’d love to hear from you!
