StitchFix #eleven

Posted by & filed under StitchFix.


It happened again! For the eleventh time, actually. My personal stylist sent me a box of clothes she thought I’d like and there were (as usual) some big winners! IMG_8113

I always love Fix day. I know it’s coming because I track my package as it travels all the way from San Francisco. I always make sure I’m showered and have my hair done (not that I don’t always shower and do my hair… ahem.), and I have been known to check the front door semi-frequently to see if that pretty box with the StitchFix logo has arrived yet.

I’m a nerd. I love mail. Especially when that mail carries something I will almost definitely wear the very next time I leave the house.

This time, my Fix arrived on a Saturday evening. And, like clockwork, I was wearing two of the pieces to church the next day. It’s often my test of whether or not to keep a piece – will I actually reach for it and wear it out as soon as possible, or will I have a hard time finding an occasion where I feel great wearing it?


My two keepers this time were a triangle tribal print tank by Collective Concepts and a Dylan and Rose overlap tulip pocket skirt. I love the tank because it’s versatile – I wore it with the tulip skirt and a cardigan to church this morning, but this afternoon I dropped the cardigan and swapped the skirt for a pair of Sanctuary ponte pants from Fix #9. (and for the record, I got an unsolicited “ooh, you look cute!” from my husband in that outfit!)

The other three things in my box were cute but I didn’t love the way I looked in them -which is probably best since I’ve had a recent track record of buying the whole box. Nice to scale back this time around.

Also, I’m learning that cowl necks and halter-type lines are not flattering on me – I’m not a broad-shouldered gal, but I feel that way in those necklines. Good to know, and I know it helped to communicate that to my stylist for future fixes. (And the black ankle skinny jeans were a pass only because I already have a pair – they were great!)


If you’ve never tried Stitch Fix, here’s a basic run-down. Shipping is free both ways, there’s no contract or subscription, and the styling for a Fix is $20 (which you can apply as credit toward anything you decide to keep!).

Have a fantastic Monday, friends! And for fun: try wrapping a beaded necklace around your wrist and call it a bracelet – it’s my new favorite thing! :)

        Thanks for adding them. I love knowing what others get regardless of whether or not they keep it (plus it helps when I’m googling like crazy when my fix is on the way and I’m too impatient to be surprised).

    Super cute! Wish stitch fix would work for me, but it never has!! Btw, I wish I was able to join you in the FMF team, but my husband will be deployed….makes me so sad to miss it again due to a deployment!

    Such cute clothes! Ive been wanting to try out this site. Seems genius! Say, would you mind disclosing how much the outfit you kept cost?

    Smashing! How I love the skirt. I wish we could purchase the stuff just however, but I know some of it is unique to Stitch Fix. If I weren’t pregnant and knowing it is impractical to buy “normal clothes” right now, I’d be scheduling my next fix. I’ve only done it the once and had an absolute blast. Nice choices!

    would you mind saying what you answered on your style questions?? I have read a lot of different blogs about stitch fix and by far your packages are my fav!
