Stitch Fix: March 2016 – Fix #7

All opinions are my own. I was not compensated for this post.

SPRING! Need I say more?  It was finally sunny outside when I got this box and took my pictures.  So. Much. JOY!

First, if you aren’t familiar with Stitch Fix, check out this post!

Now for the reveal!

This is my 7th Fix and I have been sticking with Jasmine to build a relationship and get better Fixes.  I don’t think they have ever been bad, but I mean they are more personalized as she learns my style and my needs.  For this Fix I had mentioned a particular style of KFTK pants I want (in Olive!) or any jeans in a medium/dark wash, a navy blazer, noted I’m still looking for bright, fun colors, and mentioned that I’d like jewelry that I have pinned on my board.  Let’s see how Jasmine did…

Item 1:
Romolo: Allister Beaded Layering Necklace (Turquoise)
Size: N/A
Price: $34.00

Fit/Cut: Love It

I loved the length of this piece, it was perfect.  I also liked the beading (click the above picture for a better look!).  However, I hate gold jewelry.  As in, I own NONE.  I did mention I prefer silver, but that may not have been a strong enough message (I have fixed this).  This was also not on my Pinterest board, but wasn’t too far from an item that was, so I’ll give her half credit for that.

Verdict: Returned

 

Item 2:
Olive & Oak: Ganesa Crew Neck Blouse (Mint)
Size: XL
Price: $44.00

This is another one of those sad items.  I 110% was in love with the colors – it has a great geo pattern in mint with the navy stripes on white.  I also loved the style and material – even the little keyhole in the back.  Again, I had fit issues – it was just cut too small and was tight across the chest, back, and under my arms, as you can see in the pictures.

Verdict: Returned

 

Item 3:
Kensie: Tayah Boyfriend Blazer (Navy is what the card said, but it is Royal)
Size: XL
Price: $98.00

I had asked for a Kensie Rebecca blazer, but got the Tayah instead, which is fine.  I liked the blazer and I definitely want a navy blazer, but this one isn’t going to work.  The color was royal blue, not navy, for one thing.  It photographed just a bit darker than in person, but trust me, my school colors were royal blue and silver, so I know royal blue when I see it.  Next, FIT.  The blazer was too tight in the arms and shoulders for me to move comfortably.  I see now that the photo makes it look like it was tight across my midsection, but it was not, it’s just a one-button style.  It did have a great silky gingham lining that you could see if I had rolled the sleeves up a little, but alas, I did not.  Side Note: I tried on Kensie blazers at Macy’s recently and believe I need a 2X for shoulder comfort, which I’ll probably have to order.

Verdict: Returned

 

Item 4:
Renee C: Lyzbeth Crew Neck Top (Off-White)
Size: XL
Price: $48.00

The only thing I liked about this top was the light, cool fabric and the earth tone colors.  The print and style of the shirt are Boho/Tribal-ish, which is not my style or taste.  I didn’t like the split in the back either – it added nothing to this shirt.  Again, there were also fit issues – it was too tight across my chest, back and underarms.

Verdict: Returned

 

Item 5:
Kut From The Kloth: Denna Skinny Jean (Blue)
Size: 14
Price: $88.00

I requested this style in olive, but since that color wasn’t available she sent this style in the denim wash I requested.  I’ve always heard that KFTK are great jeans, and that’s no lie!  These are fantastic jeans with the right amount of stretch and this is such a great wash for my taste!  I thought I could have used these in a 16, but as I am doing a light weight-loss regimen and have shed a few pounds, I felt these would probably just fit even better and will be a favorite for a long while.  I am wearing these jeans in all of the photos in this post.

Side Note: I did purchase the same style (called Diana outside of Stitch Fix) in a darker wash in size 16 from Amazon for $55. They are also great but look less like a ‘skinny’ with a looser leg and may require a belt before long, so I’m super glad I kept these from SF!

Verdict: Kept

 

Final Thoughts: My 7th fix was another 1/5.  Again, not because I didn’t like the items but because I have fit issues being at the top of their sizing scale.  If fit were not an issue I think this would have been 3/5 (the blazer and the mint blouse with the jeans).  I’m confident that as we explore different brands and styles I’ll find more things that work, and I know from her notes to me that Jasmine is mindful and helping me with that.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love that SF keeps my shopping brain busy and my body out of stores each month as I anticipate its arrival!  BTW, have you heard?? Stitch Fix is now offering shoes nationwide, so I might just request a pair in my next Fix…

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!

  1. So glad to see you kept those Kut From The Kloth jeans! They look beyond fab on you. The Olive & Oak: Ganesa Crew Neck Blouse had a gorgeous coloring it’s a shame it wasn’t a fit. Maybe, it’s just me and my addiction to mint and corals right now. =)
