Stitch Fix Review: Version 3.0

My latest fix came on Friday and GOOD GOLLY did I get a box full of wonderfulness!!

I had asked for layering options and in my note said I was "ready for fall" and my stylist, Amy, hit a home run! Knocked it right out of the park, my friends!



Before I get into the photo show of my goodies, I've just gotta say...a fashion model I am not. So, forgive the photos. :)

This coat is amazing! It's called the Claremore jacket and is so stinking cute...took me a bit to wrap my head around it, because I kept thinking "sweater" but when I realized it was supposed to be roomy because: COAT, I was all over this! Flattering? Perhaps not...but cute, and warm and I want to go Christmas tree shopping in it!



Also in this photo shows my Kut from the Kloth Dayna Skinny Jeans which are to DIE for! Soft and fit like a glove. *swoon* The Bolton Plaid Scarf is so cute. Fall and cozy and the colors make me happy! And the red striped "Where's Waldo" (thanks, Dad, for that one) shirt?



That is probably my favorite piece from this fix! Long enough for my wonky long torso and the elbow patches just MAKE IT. I love it!



Finally, the Carlynn sweater. I wanted to love it...but I just knew it wasn't my style and that it would sit, lonely and unused, in my closet. HOWEVER...when you're >thisclose< to an "all 5" discount, you try to make things happen and low and behold, I found a taker for the sweater and so now that makes TWO happy people!



I'm guessing you know by now that I kept all 5 items! And, I have some big time guilt about it...I hate spending that much money on myself! But, what's done is done, right? :)

Stitch Fix: Version 2.0

I am almost due to get my next Stitch Fix box...so I guess it's 'bout time I reviewed my 2nd fix, huh?!

This fix wasn't quite as great as my first one...for a couple of reasons, but it was still "okay". Let me show you why:

The Tunic. I had asked for another tunic, because I loved August's tunic so much and it killed me to send it back! Again, my family loved this (I still felt it was a tad big, but maybe that's how it's supposed to fit?), and I agreed! Cute. Comfy. Work appropriate. And the color? LOVED IT! Verdict: Kept! (Duh.)

The Leggings. Confession: I peeked at my fix before it arrived. (Did you know you could do this? When you get notified that your box has shipped, you just go to "check out" and Google the items that are listed! Cheating. I know.) These leggings have a zipper on the back (rookie mistake in neglecting to take a picture of that detail) and screamed 1980 to me...I wanted to hate them. In fact...I hated them until I tried them on and then? Well...then I fell in love. But...they were WAY more money than I would ever spend on leggings (hello, $10 Old Navy leggings...I love you too) at $58 (I believe) there was no way I could justify them. So, my love/hate relationship with them ended very quickly. Verdict: Returned


This Dress: UGH. As in: UGHLY. :) I've seen this dress pop up in other reviews and I never did find it attractive or cute then...so when it showed up in my fix, I did an internal groan, but took one for the team and tried it on anyway. You guys, this dress is just as bad on as it is in pictures. The weird stitching/ruching thing it has going on was just bizarre and super unattractive. My husband looked at it, cocked his head, and asked what was wrong with that dress. Just...wrong. In so many ways. Verdict: Returned (totes, duh.)


This Shirt: When I saw and felt this shirt, I wanted to love it with all my heart and soul. It looked long enough to cover the wonky real estate that is my torso (I have a ridiculously long torso...and just as ridiculously short legs. Hey, we all have our cross to bear, right?!) and make it an appropriate shirt to wear with leggings. But...the slits. This shirt had side slits so high I felt like you could almost see my bra (okay, that's an exaggeration...but you could see the waistband of my pants). This shirt was like the leggings, but reverse...I wanted to love it, but I hated it! Verdict: Returned 


The Scarf. Since I knew I wasn't keeping all five things, I didn't even bother with the scarf. I liked it well enough, but I wasn't going to pay the sticker price on it...definitely would've loved it if I had gotten the "keep all 5" discount, but since I wasn't: Verdict: Returned 


And that wraps up my 2nd Stitch Fix! I continue to get so many compliments on the dress I kept from my first Stitch Fix, and have gotten a lot of compliments on my tunic from this fix...I can't wait to see what's in store for Stitch Fix #3!
