Counting Down to the Next Stitch Fix: Stitch Review # 4

Stitch Fix # 4


In the midst of wrapping up the semester and balancing this with work projects, it’s the little things that can make your day. Or in this case, a Stitch Fix delivery!! Getting clothes picked out just for you by a personal stylist and sent to your doorstep just doesn’t get old! For those that haven’t heard of Stitch Fix you can read all about the details in my first Stitch Fix review. The basics of Stitch Fix are that you fill out a very detailed questionnaire that truly captures your style and tastes and for $20/Fix, you have a personal stylist hand pick items just for you! Everything is delivered right to your door (a bad day can turn into a great day when you see the Stitch Fix box waiting for you!) and you have three business days to try everything on and mix and match with items you already have in your closet. Keep what you love (or if they’re like my first three Fixes, keep it all!) and send back the rest in a pre-paid shipping package. Simple as pie! But maybe even better than pie!

Stitch Fix Outfits #4

You also get handy style cards in case putting together outfits is not your thing. But it also reminds me of other items I have in my closet that I can pair with the items they sent me. It’s a cheat sheet for putting together an instantly cute outfit!

Stitch Fix Blue Top


This first top had me right away because of the color alone! My mom always tells me that bright blue is the “friendliest” of colors and who wouldn’t want to wear a shirt that speaks to that! It’s a sleeveless blouse that I can easily dress up or down and I also love that I can wear it loose with pants or tucked into a pencil skirt. I had this shirt on the day after I received this Fix, I just couldn’t help myself, and I paired it with my grey skinnies from my second Fix. It was a Stitch Fix kind of day and those are happening more and more frequently! (Collective Concepts Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse: $54.00)

Stitch Fix Skirt


When I first saw this skirt I was on the fence. I love a good pattern but I just wasn’t sure if I considered this pattern in the “I love it” category. The best way I can describe the fabric is that it felt like bathing suit material but it was much heavier than you’d first expect. There are lots of pleats and they weighed me down BUT once I put it on, it was incredibly comfortable. The waistband on the skirt was very wide and sometimes that can look very awkward on me; this time was no different. I tried tucking shirts in and Jor gave me weird looks. I’ve decided that when I guy gives you weird looks at your clothes that could be a sign and you should maybe rethink your outfit! The best I could make this skirt look on me was with a bright top not tucked in.

Stitch Fix Skirt 2

As you can see I was still undecided. My mom always taught us to only buy clothes that you absolutely love or else you’ll find them sitting in your closet a year later with the tags still on. I was afraid that would happen with this one so I decided to send it back. (Leota Hellen Geo Print Pleated Skirt: $108)

Stitch Fix Coral Tulip Top and Jeans


This next top had me just as excited as the blue top! As you can tell, I have a thing for bright colors and my closet would attest to this! Give me a pop of color in my outfit, and I feel like it’s going to be a good day! I loved the coral in this shirt but I loved it even more paired with the navy tulips! I’ve already worn it a handful of times and it’s extremely comfortable while looking a little bit fancy at the same time. It’s also a great transition shirt from spring into summer and I can wear it with both pants, a jean pencil skirt or even tucked into a shorts. For this picture I actually paired it with a dark wash capri jean that also came in this Fix. I loved them! They fit perfectly like all my Fix pants have and they were SO comfortable. I got a jean pencil skirt in my First Fix that was the most comfortable jean material and these rivaled that skirt. However, I was trying to be responsible and told myself that I already own a couple pair of dark wash capri jeans. Of course my head told me that I don’t have THESE particular jeans, but at the end of the day I decided they needed to go back because I already had their twin sitting my closet. (Pomelo Ivy Tulip Print Tab Sleeve Blouse: $68 AND Liverpool Janice Straight Leg Jean: $78) 

Stitch Fix Statement Necklace

Last but not least I got a statement necklace. I don’t know what it is with statement necklaces but I totally fell for the fashion craze and I’m wearing them whenever my outfit will allow it. I loved the colors in this one but what I loved even more was that it sat it a little lower. I layer the same three necklaces every day, not for a fashion statement but because each has very sentimental value for me and when I don’t wear them I almost feel naked! So I love a statement piece that still allows me to at least wear one or two of those necklaces. With this one, I can still wear all three! It was a keeper! (Pomelo Vina Cabochon Stone Crystal Pendant: $42)

This was the first fix that I didn’t keep all of the items BUT I still think about those jeans from time to time and almost wish I hadn’t sent them back! If you decide to keep all five items, you get 25% off the entire Fix! Sadly, I couldn’t take advantage of that perk this time around but I was still able to apply my $20 styling fee. I could always use fun new summer tops so the two, plus the statement necklace, were great additions to the closet! I actually already received Stitch Fix # 5 and I’ll add that review soon but you can check out my first three here, here, and here! If you haven’t signed up for Stitch Fix, treat yourself and sign up TODAY! You can use my referral link and I’ll get a $25 credit but the more important thing is that you get a treat delivered to your door that is sure to brighten your day and your closet! The only thing I think is missing from the Stitch Fix delivery is a disclaimer on the outside of the box that warns you of your immediate addiction to Stitch Fix! I fell victim after my first Stitch Fix and the excitement of when the next one will arrive hasn’t gotten old one bit! For now, that’s me counting down to the next Stitch Fix…in the shell of a nut!
