Stitch Fix Fun

by Meghann on October 20, 2014

Hello, old friend.


I wasn’t having the best day last week, but as soon as I came home and saw the familiar teal logo on the box waiting for me at my front door, it was an instant mood booster. There’s nothing like a fresh shipment of clothes to turn any frown upside down. 😉

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Stitch Fix review.  I’ve still been receiving them on a monthly basis, I just haven’t been the best at photographing them before deciding what to keep/send back. This week I was on my A game and managed to take a few pics before heading to the post office.

For those unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, it’s an online service where you pay a $20 styling fee and a Stitch Fix stylist picks out a few items she thinks you’ll enjoy based on a personal survey/ feedback from previous fixes.The fixes are shipped when you request them, or you can set-up automatic fixes. When the fix arrives, you pay for what you keep and return what you don’t (in the pre-addressed return envelope). If you keep everything, you receive a pretty sweet discount.

So what did I get? Let’s see:


Pixley Layna Textured Fit & Flare Dress


I really wanted to like this dress. I have a baby shower next weekend and thought this dress would be a good fit for the occasion. When I first pulled it out, I was all set to keep it without even trying it on. But then I came to my senses and did try it on.


Meh. It didn’t do anything for me. The neck was high, the hemline was short, and the color combination was really unflattering. This dress just didn’t work.


Skies are Blue Smith Ruffle Front Blouse 


Another item I knew I wanted as soon as I opened the box. I loved the bright color, fun ruffles, and shape. Plus, I could really use more tank tops in my life.


Unlike the dress, my opinion didn’t change when I put the shirt on. It’s really comfortable, flattering, and just fun enough to justify a date night.


Liverpool Rizzo Pull-On Skinny Ponte


My stylist has a mission of finding a pair of black pants I actually enjoy. This is my third pair in three shipments, but I was afraid this was another pair that wasn’t going to make it. The first time I tried them on they didn’t impress me. However, I put them on again for these photos and had a sudden change of heart. These weren’t just any black pants,  they were comfortable leggings in disguise of black pants.


You see that? Stretchy waist! No buttons, no zipper, just some stretchy elastic. Pretty awesome.

I’ve worn them to work twice now and totally love them. These pants are really comfortable and perfect for those days you really don’t feel like wearing pants with buttons. They’re extra stretchy, extra comfortable, and look great. Love.


Olive & Oak Mulliken Raglan Striped Knit Shirt 


So soft… I can’t get over how soft and comfortable this shirt is. I own approximately one-hundred and one striped shirts – what’s another one?


Market and Spruce Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee


Another soft shirt. I almost kept this shirt because of how soft it is. But in the end it’s just a plain t-shirt and my closet is full of plain t-shirts I never wear. Meh.


Let’s see, that’s three keeps and two returns. Not a bad fix! I already put in a request for cozy, warm clothes for next month’s fix in preparation for next month’s trip to Switzerland. I can’t wait to see what I get it!

What to you think? What would you have kept and what would you have sent back?

I love the effort you went to to take the photo of the back of the dress 🙂

I think my favourite on you were the black pants – they are an awesome fit and look fantastic!

I would love to find something like Stitch Fix in my nick of the woods. I’d probably end up spending less than I do now buying a bunch of clothes that after a few wears I fall out of love with. At least, that’s my rationalisation 😛

Great fix. I love the cool toned colors they sent you.

Just looking, and knowing my own wardrobe. I probably would have kept the opposite. Haha. But my work is super casual, so comfy t-shirts (that aren’t tank tops, because shoulders) are pretty much my jam. I like the ponte pants, but, I have nowhere to wear more formal pants. And idk, maybe it’s the pictures, but actually kind of like the dress on you.

I love seeing other people’s fixes! Happy Monday!

That dress looks really nice. The neckline is a little high, but I might have kept it anyway. There is always some event that it would work for. I would have sent the t-shirt back too, though. It’s just a little too meh.

My favorites are the green top and the pants! I agree with you on the dress… not my thing either!

I would have kept the blue tshirt and the black pants. Just out of curiosity, what price range are you putting down for your items in your fixes? I’m getting one next month and I just want to make sure I get quality items even though I don’t want to spend a ton for them.

I love the necklace you’re wearing AND those pants/leggings! I really need another pair of black pant like leggings!

15 Linda @ Fit Fed and Happy October 21, 2014 at 6:15 am

Man, I only wish there was a stitchfix here in canada! They only offer it to US citizens. 🙁

I might have to find those black pants! I am in PA school and we are required to be in business causal clothes through classes all day so comfort is clutch!

Aw, I think that dress is SO cute, and it looks so good on you!

18 Katie October 21, 2014 at 10:05 am

I got a similar pair of pants/leggings from The Limited and love them! So perfect for wearing with boots!

The striped shirt is my favorite, that would look great with a pair of rolled up boyfriend jeans 🙂

22 Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate October 21, 2014 at 9:28 pm

LOVE the striped shirt. I have been debating on signing up for Stitch Fix for forever. Maybe I’ll ask for a few months for Christmas!?;)

23 Chelsea @ Designs on Dinner October 22, 2014 at 8:47 am

I actually really liked the dress! I definitely would have kept those stretchy pants. They look like the yoga dress pants I bought on Betabrand that I love.

Hi Meghann! I am a long time reader of your blog, I always enjoy it. I just saw your comment about your Switzerland trip – which I forgot you were going on. Not sure how much you have planned, but I just got back from Europe and we spend two days in Switzerland, one in Zurich and one in Vals, Switzerland. There is this resort up in Vals called Hotel Therme (, my husband is an Architect and really wanted to go stay at this place. It is absolutely beautiful, they are known for their “hot baths” they have like 7 or 8 baths, all different temps, one of which is outside and overlooks the alps. It is a really neat place. Like 3 hours from Zurich by train/bus, I would recommend it!
