I’ve been doing Stitch Fix for about 3 years and it’s everything a busy Mamanista could ask for. You make a wish list, fill out a style profile in the comfort of your home and the personal stylists at Stitch Fix mail you 5 things to try on. No fitting room lights (why are they so awful?!), no busy mall parking lot and no being hassled by 487 mall kiosk salespeople on your way from the door to your destination store.
Once you receive your “fix,” you have 3 days to try your selected clothing and accessory items on and then ship back what doesn’t work in the convenient, prepaid envelope included with your order. To make it even easier, you can check out and pay through the Stitch Fix app. To learn more, click here to visit the Stitch Fix site.
For my fall “fix” I asked for some on trend fall clothes for weekend and work and one “out of my comfort zone” item to push me a little bit on the style front. You’ll see more about that stretch item later!
Item #1: Renay Cold Shoulder Dress – $68
I admit that when I first saw this, I was afraid it would look like grandma’s curtains on (Sorry, grandma… not your curtains! I meant “other people’s grandmas” Yours are fabulous!) The pattern is fun with many different colors to work with, without being too over the top. I might play around with pairing it with a cardigan or blazer for work. Plus, it will make a perfect addition to an upcoming trip for a night out.
Keep or Return? I kept.
Item #2: Lysee Faux Leather Leggings – $108
These fascinate me and scare me all at the same time. How would you style them? Keep an eye out for future Outfit-of-the Day (#OOTD) posts to see if I tried your suggestion! Side note – I suggest taking advantage of the new exchange feature on Stitch Fix and sizing up on these! They run small.
Keep or Return? I kept these (with the discount)… and exchanged for a size up from the ones pictured. The new app based exchange program is awesome! I’ll admit, I’m still scared of these, but I accept the challenge! If you have ideas for pairing these, please share:)
Item #3: Pixley Greenich Striped Knit Top – $48
From the minute I saw this and felt it, I was in love! Seriously… this is the softest shirt ever. It’s a great balance of thin to wear under on-trend vests this season but thick enough to wear alone too. I can’t wait for cooler weekend weather so I can break this out!
Keep or Return? I kept.
Item #4: Joakim Split Back Plaid Top – $48
I really want to embrace the whole flannel and plaid trend this season. This shirt was super cute out of the box with a split back which provided the unexpected details I so love! But when I put it on, I looked like a lumberjack, so back it goes.
Keep or Return? I returned this. (Actually, I listed it on a trade board so I could keep my discount. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, search “Stitch Fix Trade Boards” on Facebook… it will change your life!)
Item #5: Daniel Rainn Larranaga Tie Neck Top – $68
I pinned a whole bunch of shirts and sweaters in this color – it’s called everything from Cedar Rose, Dusty Rose, Potter’s Clay, and Dusty Cedar. All I know is I wanted it in my wardrobe for early fall! It seems like the perfect change from the corals of summer or burgundies of late fall. This Daniel Rainn shirt feels great on, and I can’t wait to play with accessories and different combinations to dress it up or down for work or weekends.
Keep or Return? I kept. The color is seriously fantastic!
Overall a great fix! A 4/5… I still didn’t get my military vest with the gingham check lining but there’s always next time! If you’d like to try your hand at Stitch Fix, click here to get started!
