Ahhhh another month, another stitch fix! I WAS excited to receive this fix, but then I opened it up and…well. Ho-hum. The pieces themselves were not at all my style, not really seasonally appropriate and just…I was so bummed about all of them. All the posts I’ve read about getting a good fix say “leave specific feedback!” So, I did. And it like…wasn’t read. Or fell on deaf ears. I’ll try ONE more time in November…hopefully I get redemption because I do love the service… it’s a fun package to get every so often. But I’m not going to drop $20 for nothing….
Piece #1: Hailey 23 | Nita Knit Dress
A nice, thick, marled type dress. It was nice, but not really office appropriate. And the short sleeves confused me. It was nice quality but I didn’t love it for the price tag. Verdict: return.
Piece #2: 41Hawthorne | Lizzy Colorblock Striped Sweater
I don’t really…do color block? Like, it was certainly a unique piece, but I just couldn’t imagine myself wearing it. At all. It’s not me and it certainly wasn’t something I would wear to work. Verdict: return
Piece #3: Papermoon | Spierings Mixed Media Top
Somewhere, in my style guide, I remember saying no neons. Like seriously. The floral print, while certainly pretty, was off-set by the bright poppy back/collar. The fit was good and the shape was nice – but the colors? Not so much. Verdict: return
Piece: #4: Rune | Porter legging
So these are the leggings I was wearing in the above picture. I did love these, they were comfortable and they fit well. But my office has a no leggings allowed policy soooo no dice because I have my Ann Taylor Ponte pants, my Loft Ponte leggings, and the red ponte pants from last winter (via Stitch Fix). So as much as I would have loved to have kept them, I didn’t need them. And i’m pretty sure leggings =/= business casual (as i mentioned in my Style notes). Verdict: return.
Piece #5: Pixley | Stacey Scallop Hem Cut-out detail skirt
If it was skirt weather, I would have kept this skirt. But we’re moving out of skirt weather and this is more of a spring/summer skirt than a fall/winter piece. Nevermind the fact that it didn’t quite fit…serious womp womp here because the cut-out detail was pretty and I love nothing more than anything navy in my wardrobe. *sigh* Verdict: Return
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being like “ima cancel my Stitch Fix right meow…” I’d label myself at a 3-4 on the satisfaction scale. That being said, shortly after I sent my “so sad” email to customer service I got an email about custom fixes. So if you want a 9-5 fix, or an all trends fix, you can request those. I requested the 9-5 fix because well, 40+ hours of my week are in a setting where it’s business casual. I can wear leggings and a tunic or a chambray shirt on the weekend – but if I can dress that shirt up with nice pants, then I’m sold. But man, stop with the effing prints Stitch Fix. I prefer solids. Or plaid or stripes or polka dots. But really, solids will win me over every time. As long as it fits. That’s always the problem.
Have you tried Stitch Fix? I still highly recommend giving it a try – i know a lot of people have had amazing success with it, and it’s always a fun package to look forward to! Use my referral link to sign up!
