Running from the Law: Stitch Fix Keepers

Stitch Fix Keepers

Hello friends! It's been a while since I posted my last Stitch Fix box (back in August). I've received three boxes since then and didn't take a single photo. Womp womp. However, instead of showing you all the items in the boxes and what worked/didn't work, I decided to show you all the items I've kept over the last few months! So, this is a parade of keepers only, which makes it a bit different than a normal Stitch Fix review, but I think it's just as fun. 

Just in case you've been living in a hole over the last few years, let me quickly explain what Stitch Fix is. Basically, it's a personal shopping service where you fill out your style profile by answering questions about likes/dislikes, style, sizing, etc. Your stylist bases her/his picks on your profile, but you can also write a note about what you're interested in, as well as link to you Pinterest style board or blog. You receive a box with 5 items, including a style card that shows you different ways to wear each piece and you get to try the clothes on in the comfort of your own home and decide what you want to keep or send back. You have three days to send back the stuff you don't want in a prepaid prelabeled envelope they include in your box, so it's super easy. For each box, there's a $20 styling fee, which is deducted from the price of your box, should you decide to keep anything. If you send back all the items, you lose the $20. And if you keep all five items you also get a 25% discount on all the items. 

Ok, on with the show! (I'm so not a fashion blogger - please disregard my awkwardness in these photos.)
Le Lis Myler Keyhole Back Blouse
Black and floral, light and gauzy - I love this top. It's the perfect mix of feminine and trendy. I currently own nothing floral, so this was really different than anything in my closet. I think it looks great with a pair of black pants and would be perfect for the office. It would also be cute with jeans, maybe under a blazer or with a colored cardigan or jacket. It's a bit light and breezy, so I probably won't be wearing it much until it warms up again, but this will be perfect for spring! 

Liverpool Rizzo Skinny Pant
In the photo above (and a few of the photos below) I'm also wearing these black Liverpool Rizzo Skinny Pants, which I'm obsessed with. I don't know how they do it, but Stitch Fix has this uncanny ability to absolutely nail fit on the pants they send me - and everyone else says the same thing! The pants have a thick elastic high waist, perfect for that post-baby belly, with good stretch, but doesn't feel like maternity pants. They're a little bit long, so I'm planning on having them hemmed so they hit right at the top of my foot, but I also don't really mind them rolled, as shown.


THML Mario Pullover Sweater
I love this sweater! It's thick and feels well-made, without being heavy or adding extra bulk in the wrong places. I love the stripes and the colors, which are a charcoal grey,  orangeish and tans. I think the variety of colors means that it will go with nearly everything (black or tan). Plus, I like the pop of color and that it's warm for winter.

Mavi Gold Hattie Skinny Jean
Again, in the above photo I'm also wearing these jeans and they are the most amazing pair of jeans I've ever owned. They were not cheap, but they are thick and fit like a dream! They're soft and buttery and flattering and I could sleep in them, they're so comfortable. Totally worth every penny. I haven't worn another pair of jeans since I got these and they almost make me want to throw away all my other pairs of cheap jeans. 


RD Style Calistoga Side Slit V-Neck Knit Top
This might be my absolute favorite shirt I've ever received from Stitch Fix. I love the length (that it covers my butt), I love the side slit, I love the v-neck. It's comfortable, soft, flattering and fits great. It's a black/grey knit, which is light, yet also warm. It can be dressed up with a pair of black pants or tuxedo ponte leggings (which I'm wearing above) or down with a pair of distressed denim jeans. Yes, the slit is high, but I always wear a tank/camisole under sweaters anyway, so it didn't bother me a bit. I want this top in 20 different colors.


41Hawthorn Renesme Geo Print Faux Wrap Dress
I wanted to hate this dress solely based on the name, but I love it. I find wrap dresses to be so comfortable and flattering. I like the dark purple color and the grey print. The pattern is cute and I think it'll go with black or brown shoes. Perfect for the office (paired with a cardigan because my office is always freezing). 

Market & Spruce Lanta Open Drape Cardigan
Sometimes I wonder whether Stitch Fix understands winter at all because so many pieces they send during winter months are light and airy, but then they sent this sweater and my faith is restored. I love this cardigan. It's so thick and soft and cozy. It's a beautiful deep purple color on the bottom and a light heather grey on top. I think it's a great casual piece to throw on over a t-shirt with jeans for an easy and comfortable outfit.

Market & Spruce Corinna Striped Dolman Top
I think everyone that does Stitch Fix has received this top in one of their boxes. It's so popular that there's an organized effort to show SF consolidarity by wearing this exact shirt this coming Sunday so current Stich Fixers can find each other and make friends! It's that popular! And for good reason. It's flattering and comfortable and easy to wear dressed up with black pants or down with jeans or leggings. 


Staccato Michelli Open Drape Cardigan
This cardigan was so similar to the one above that I almost didn't keep it, but then I tried it on and fell in love. While the cardigan above is light and soft and cozy, this one is thick and heavy and sturdy. It almost has a structured feel, which I think it great. It's very long and adds a lot of warmth, which I need at work. I love the colors and think it's a really versatile piece.


Mo-Vint Kuhn Henley Top
This one was a bit iffy for me. I loved everything else that came in this box, but I wasn't sold on this top, but I kept it so I could get the 25% off discount on all five pieces (it was cheaper to keep it than to send it back). I was going to try sell it on the Stitch Fix FB page to someone that was looking for it, but when I tried it on again, I liked it a bit more. My husband happened to walk in on me wearing it and told me he loved it, so I kept it. And now I love it too. Honestly, it's giant on me and not structured or all that flattering on my small frame and it's not really my style...but I like that it's different and it's really grown on me! It's so incredibly comfortable and really great to wear out with the kids or lounging around the house. It's got pockets in the front and is long enough in the back to cover my butt (which I like). It's less faded than the style card makes it look and is a pretty purpley-blue color with pink stripes. I've worn it quite a few times and always get compliments on it! Who knew?!

41Hawthorn Moni Chain Print Stud Detail Blouse
I received this back in October and I think this was such a great shirt for fall. I love the orangey color and the gold studs on the front. I like the v-neck, but don't love that it flaps completely open all the time (I wish it stayed closed like the middle photo above) (I'm a prude like that). I like the length of the top and the detail on the front and the sleeves. I also like the cut of the bottom, but after wearing it a couple times, I do wish the sleeves were a bit less poofy. 

Brixon Ivy Bixby Clover Print Blouse
This is a top that I actually received in my very first fix, but I never posted so I thought I'd show you here. I like this top and think it's great for work. Most of my work wardrobe is black and white (or some shade thereof), so this fit right in. I like the print and the thickness of the material. I usually have to wear a thick scarf with this top though because the neck is so big that I freeze in my office without one, although it's great for summer. It's a bit big on me right now (I have lost a bit of weight since I received this one over the summer). I could probably stand wear it in a smaller size now, although I don't really mind it being loose. I do with that it was a smidge longer though. When I lift my arms it feels shorter than I like. 


Alright! So, that's what I've kept over the last few months. Thanks for following along and checking out what I received in my SF boxes! I've started really loving everyone else's SF reviews and Stitch Fix reveal blog posts are quickly becoming some of my favorites. I think it's so much fun to see what everyone else is getting!

If you haven't signed up for Stitch Fix yet, please give it a try! If you want to use this referral link, I'll love you forever (don't worry, I love you even if you don't).

What do you think? Was everything I kept worth it? 
Which was your favorite?

  2. Love it all! You have had some good fixes. I think my favorite is the purple/grey cardigan with the orange studded top right behind it. Also...I'm pretty sure you do not age at all...how do you do that??

  5. Oh man you've kept some really great stuff! I basically want it all... and I totally want your stylist now! Work clothes is really the only reason I miss working outside the house, cause while I love so many of the "dressier" pieces, I wouldn't be able to keep them since I'd never wear them. I think my favorite is the floral shirt because I also don't have anything floral in my closet right now (other than a kimono that I love!).

  11. I love the pieces that you chose...but I am convinced that you would look adorable in anything you put on! I need to join the rest of the world and schedule a fix.

  12. Love these kinds of reviews and all of your pieces! Everyone at work is hooked on the Stitch Fix and they bring their boxes in to swap around if they don't like something. Oh, and might I say that your legs -- whoa! I need to do whatever workouts you're doing.

  13. Stitch Fix is so hit or miss for me. I've dropped down to a box every other month and I don't think I've kept anything the last two boxes. Hoping the next one isn't a doozy, otherwise I may cancel.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I absolutely adore all the pieces you kept! You look great in them and those two cardigans couldnt be more cozy. Im getting tempted to try SF but just havent had the right incentive yet ;)

  19. I am so in love with that first floral top! I saw one so similar to it in a store recently but didn't get it because my size was sold out. And your poses are so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love it all!! SF nailed it on so many pieces. That dress? Yes. The jeans? Perfect. (Side note, you look freaking amazing.)
    As due that dolman, I truly think I'm the only Stitch Fixer who hasn't received that top.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Everything looks good on you! Love everything you kept. Also, I loved all of your facial expressions, too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love everything you chose, but I have to say that my absolute favorite is the pullover sweater with the colorful striped arms. LOVE and I want it!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. You look adorable in everything you wear!! I didn't love the things they sent in my first box but since they waived my $20 fee, no harm done. I'm going to get another box in the next week or so and hope to get some great items.

    ReplyDelete
  24. They all look great, I'm cracking up about the Corinna sweater meet up, you can't be serious -- can you?? so funny, guess I'll wear that on Sunday ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love all of these!!! I am totally pinning this entire post!! And I had no idea there was a FB page...you are totally in the know!! And you could totally be a fashion blogger...you're way more fun to look at than them!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. not going to lie... i was a little skeptical when i have seen stitch fix reviews before, BUT these are big hits and flatter your figure so well mama!!!! my favorite is that open drape cardigan and i doubt i would ever take it off!!! and p.s. LOVING your modeling my friend... you need to do more of that

    ReplyDelete
  27. Awesome stuff! I think I am in love with those Liverpool pants!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Umm, ok seriously, I don't even know where to start because I want EVERYTHING you kept! I LOVE it all! It all looks amazing on you, and like you, I completely agree... how does Stitch Fix do it on the pants? I swear I cannot buy my own pants to save my life but someone who has never met me can find me pants time and time again that fit perfectly.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love it all! You're right, those pants look like the perfect fit. I admit I've never bought expensive jeans before, but now I want to at least try some on. And all the sweaters look so comfy/chic. Your stylist nailed it :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I keep hearing so many great things about SF but I haven't taken the leap yet :) I love so many of those shirts though! I especially love the pullover sweater and cardigans. And getting pants that fit great sounds like a dream! Question- how have the clothes held up since you've received them? That's the only thing I'm worried about, as I'm looking to add more quality clothes to my closet and nothing super delicate or things that show wear quickly.

  31. I LOVE all of these!! The polka dots and stripes are my favorite! You could definitely be a fashion blogger :). Totally random but last night I dreamed you held a girls' night at your house (which I showed up to early thinking it was at 7 not 7:30) and we talked about stitch fix :) -funny right?!
