Stitch Fix No. 19 – October 2016

It’s time for Stitch Fix Friday again – YAY! I only had one specific request this month – I’m wearing a lot more warmer tones lately and really want a camel/tan/brown crossbody purse. I have a black one from Stitch Fix that I love and was hoping to see something similar.

When I snuck a peek at what was heading my way, I was immediately concerned. I wasn’t sure I was going to like ANYTHING in the fix. Based on photos I found on Pinterest, nothing really seemed my style or was just a little off. Once my fix arrived, I realized why everything was a little off – my regular stylist wasn’t able to do this fix and so I had a substitute. I still gave everything a shot and tried everything on because, hey, you never know.

First up, I paired the Addison Skinny Jeans with the Colibri Plaid Henley, following the advice in the stylist note:

JUST BLACK Addison Skinny Jean – $88.00

MARKET & SPRUCE Colibri Plaid Henley Top – $48.00

URBAN EXPRESSIONS Valerie Convertible Satchel – $68.00

My intial impression was – Green jeans? No way. But they were super comfortable and I really loved the material. I think they’ll be an interesting addition to my fall wardrobe. The shirt was cute, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the 3 color combo and the fit was just a little off for me. I was most disappointed when I saw the bag. I was really hoping for something much smaller and, as the stylist herself pointed out, I had JUST received a similar bag in mint a few fixes ago. Had I received this one first, I would have definitely kept it, but I didn’t, so back it went.

VERDICT: Jeans – Keep!
Top – Return
Satchel – Return

RD STYLE Harriette Cowl Neck Sweater – $68.00

I swapped out the plaid top for the Harriette Cowl Neck Sweater. My husband mentioned that he thought I had something similar – and I actually do, but it’s an athletic pullover from Calia by Carrie Underwood with a printed cable knit sweater pattern complete with cowl neck. I found this very amusing. It was a nice sweater, but I have had some bad experiences with Stitch Fix sweaters in the past and I wasn’t really willing to invest in another one at this time.

VERDICT: Return

Next up, another sweater top with lovely lacework around the collar. I threw on some jeans from my latest ThredUp haul and, again upon the suggestion of my stylist, a scarf of Roswell’s that happened to have a yellow that matched perfectly.

CRESCENT Beamen Crochet Detail Knit Top – $48.00

The top was nice, I loved the detail, but overall was not wowed enough to keep it.

VERDICT: Return

Overall, I was surprised how spoiled I had been with having the same stylist who really seemed to get my style (and where to push me out of my comfort zone like the Tova Dress from my last fix). It was great fall fix – I could see these pieces being very cute, mixing and matching throughout the season. I’m happy with my decision to keep the pants, since they’re very different from anything I own (although my inner dialogue is now asking me if I have anything in my closet that will actually go with said jeans, oh dear). So what do you think – did I make the right decision? What has been your favorite fall Stitch Fix piece?

If you haven’t tried Stitch Fix yet, I totally encourage you to try at least once. There is a $20 stylist fee that is applied to whatever you purchase in that fix and I have always bought at least one item in my fixes. Visit Stitch Fix to fill out your own style profile.
