I’m so sad that I couldn’t review my December Fix: I got it on the day when I had no time to try anything on, and then I was busy for the next two days, too. In the end I didn’t keep anything, because I had problems with either colors or the fit. In February I could actually take my time trying everything on, and even got to keep one item. If my budget allowed, I would have kept the whole box! 🙂

HOW IT WORKS
In a nutshell, Stitch Fix is a personal shopper service: for a $20 styling fee a specially designated Stitch Fix stylist will put together a package full of fashionable items, all according to your style profile. This fee will be applied as a credit toward anything you keep from your shipment, and if you choose to keep it all, you will get an extra 25% discount. After you get the box, it’s very simple: try it on, keep what you like, and send back everything you don’t want within 3 days in a convenient prepaid envelope. You can choose either to get a one-time fix, or to subscribe on a monthly basis. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?

This time around I was sent five items instead of four, and I must say I had a great time playing with them. I got 41 Hawthorn Striped Knit Cardigan, Renee C Melody Longsleeve Cowl Neck Dress, LA MADE Weaver Mixed Cowl Neck Top, Under Skies Sacha Beaded Pocket Short Sleeve Shirt, and Emperia Crossbody Bag.
|LA MADE Weaver Mixed Cowl Neck Top|
The first thing I tried on was this bright blue cowl neck top from LA MADE. It features a very relaxed fit, and can be dressed up or down with accessories. It has a very interesting detail in the back made out of different type of cloth, which I thought was pretty cool. The material felt very light and airy, something that would be perfect for summer.
|Under Skies Sacha Beaded Pocket Short Sleeve Shirt and Emperia Crossbody Bag|
These two things I tried together: Emperia bag and Under Skies top seemed like they belong together. The bag is made of faux leather and features spikey accents, making it look a bit more edgy. I thought the design was nice, but I wasn’t crazy about the color. The semi-sheer T-shirt is actually really cool, and has a lovely embellished pocket in the front, which is totally my style. I knew right away that I had to keep it, before I even looked at the price. It turned out to be the cheapest item in the box, and of course I was quite happy about that 🙂
|41 Hawthorn Striped Knit Cardigan|
Next item is this ultra-comfy cardigan from 41 Hawthorn, which is Stitch Fix’s own line of clothing. It fit me perfectly, and I loved the length and the material. I considered keeping it, but after closer inspection I noticed a few small tugs here and there. A shame, really, but I would not pay full price for a less than perfect product.
|Renee C Melody Long Sleeve Cowl Neck Dress|
Last but not least, Renee C dress [and that’s a scratch on my mirror, not a dirty armpit, LOL]. It fits me like a glove, and the material is oh-so-soft and warm, which is perfect for dressing up during cold Michigan winters. I think my stylist did a really great job picking it for me, but she had no way of knowing that I already have pretty much the same dress in black: also cowl neck, similar length, except it’s black and not dark gray. Nonetheless, I enjoyed trying it on to confirm once again that this style hugs my curves in all the right places without revealing too much 🙂

StitchFix accomodated all of my requests, and clearly looked at my Pinterest board that I provided for inspiration. I wanted no more pants [check!], more preppy-style clothes [that t-shirt totally fits the profile!], at least one bright item per fix [hello, blue top]. I also prefer having a bit more coverage in the front [check!], and the full range of sleeves – from sleeveless tops to long-sleeve dress, StitchFix covered all the bases. Even though this month I could only afford one item, I really hope my fixes will continue being this awesome in the future. And again, I’m sorry for the terrible picture quality, I wish I had better conditions to take large scale photos. Maybe I can make my husband take my pics outside when it’s warm 🙂
