Stitch Fix #3 Review – End of October 2014

Glorious news…I got two fixes in the month of October!!  I am on the every-four-weeks plan and there just happened to be more than 4 weeks in October this year!  So, on Halloween, I came home to a beautiful Stitch Fix box.  Now, as usual, when I got the email that my Fix shipped earlier in the week, I went on and googled all the items on my checkout page.  I’ll admit, I was disappointed.  I really thought there would only be one item that I would like.  At least three things that were definitely going back and one “maybe”…boy was I wrong…

1.  Market and Spruce Mattie S/S Cowl Neck Knit Dress – Black $78

This is the one item I knew I would like right off the bat.  I am in need of some dresses and this one looked to be cute.  When it arrived, I was a little disappointed that it was black and not some other fun color but black is practical I suppose.  Really cute on, fits great, love the jersey material and extremely versatile.  Will work in pretty much any season and I love the pockets!  I also tried it on with my Market and Spruce Elissa French Terry Motto Jacket from Stitch Fix #1.  Love this dress.

2.  Cooper Cathleen Metallic Dot Tulip Sleeve Blouse – Black $68

I was not sure what to expect with this one.  It was definitely not something I would pick for myself but I liked the metallic detail and the flowyness.  One weird thing was that there was a seam right down the front of the shirt and the pattern didn’t exactly line up.  BUT, the fit was cute, it was just the right length and was really different.  And I REALLY need some shirts that I can wear to work.  So I can overlook the weird seam.  I guess with the way it drapes it won’t be too noticeable.

3.  TCEC Donelle V-Neck Button-Up Cardigan – Green $58

Another item I thought was just going to be blah and ultimately returned.  I have a million sweaters and cardigans and this seemed like it was going to be weirdly long.  But when I tried it on, it was super-duper soft, fit really well, the color was great and I really liked the extra long length.  I tried it on with slim jeans (actually my Just Black Riley Distressed Boyfriend Jean from Stitch Fix #2) and it worked really well.  I think it will also work really well with a pencil skirt for work.  Must request some pencil skirts for work in my next fix.

4.  Mavi Freida Regular Length Skinny Jean – Navy $98

When I did the sneak-peak thing, I assumed these were going to be regular denim jeans.  I just got a pair of jeans that I love in my last fix and I actually have a few pairs that I picked up over the years that I am really happy with.  I don’t need any more jeans.  BUT, when my box arrived, I found a beautifully soft, stretchy, dark navy pair of pants.  Not really jeans in the sense that I think of jeans.  And I was really happy with the way they fit (though I am hoping they don’t stretch out too much).  I think they could even be dressed up and worn to work!

5.  Pixley Lydia Faceted Stones Long Necklace – Navy $36

(Pictured above with the Jeans in #4) I have a good friend who sells Stella and Dot so I am pretty certain I will never need to buy jewelry from Stitch Fix…unless I love all 4 other items and need to buy the last thing to get 25% off my whole fix…this is it, the FIRST TIME I AM KEEPING THE WHOLE FIX!!!  So exciting!!!  And I do like the necklace so I will definitely get use out of it.

I can’t believe it only took 3 Fixes to get a white whale “keep the whole thing” box!!  This could start to become dangerous!  That being said, you ALL need to sign up for your first Fix here!  After 3 months, my current review is that you will not regret it!!   I think it is time to start purging my closet of the old junk.  I need to stick to the plan of buy one new thing, get rid of one old thing.  Stay tuned for next month and don’t forget to follow me on Facebook and Instagram!
