Stitch Fix #2 Review – October 2014

My second Fix arrived on a Friday which was super exciting to me because I had the whole weekend to try everything on and show a few friends in person before I had to make my decisions.

Let me just say, I am totally loving Stitch Fix.  In the days leading up to the arrival of my Fix, I check the mail anxiously every day hoping it will arrive early (which it did this month, it was scheduled for Saturday, October 4th).  Even though I pretty much know I am only going to buy one or two things, it is so exciting to see what’s in the box!  If you want more information about what Stitch Fix is, click here to read my prior blog post about it.  Ok, here is what I got this month:

1.  Tart Colbie Striped French Terry 3/4 Sleeve Blazer (blue) – $128

Fit really well.  I thought it was a little weird that there were slight shoulder pads but they gave the blazer a nice shape which I assume is important since it is such a soft fabric.  It was incredible comfortable and would be really cute with both work pants and casual jeans.  My issues with the jacket were the price ($128) and the fact that I probably don’t have too much right now that would go with it.  Maybe if it were a different color or pattern, I would have sprung for it.

2.  Mak Jaclynn 3/4 Sleeve Button-Up Cardigan (burgundy) – $38

3.  Papermoon Cecil 3/4 Sleeve Aline Dress (grey) – $68

Cardigan:  Fit fine, good price.  Nothing special at all.  I already have a million cardigans.

Dress:  There was something just not right about the way this dress fit.  The waist is elasticized and seemed too tight and too high.  When I tied the sash, even when I tied it tight, it hung down below the waist line and looked a little strange.  Overall, not particularly flattering.  Maybe it would have been better in the next size up, though I feel like it might have been too BIG at that point.  Also, I already have a few grey dresses so this one wasn’t a stand-out to me.

4.  Just Black Riley Distressed Boyfriend Jean – $68


These jeans are also pictured above where I am modeling the Blazer.  I knew from doing the sneak peek preview (googling the items on my checkout screen as soon as they ship) that I was going to love these jeans and keep them.  They did not disappoint.  Although they were pretty tight (jegging tight) when I first put them on, they fit perfectly, were so soft, and stretched out to the perfect relaxed fit.  I’m not sure exactly what boyfriend jeans are supposed to be, but these are fabulous.  And how can you beat $68 for jeans?

5.  Margaret M Duboce Straight Leg Jean (white) – $58

Let me say, from the start, I knew these were going back.  There are people who can probably pull off tight white pants…but I am not one of them.  You may be wondering what the top of the pants looked like on me, but I am doing you a favor by not showing you.  That being said, the size was right, they were really comfortable and I liked the cut.  If they were a color other than white, I probably would have kept them.

Even though I only kept one item out of this box, I was not disappointed.  There were a few close calls and I feel like my stylist is on the right track.  I have heard that every month your Fix will improve as long as you leave honest feedback on why you kept or sent back items (which I am trying to do).  Looking forward to my next Fix!  Schedule your Fix here!  And follow me on Facebook and Instagram!
