Welcome to another Stitch Fix review! Yay for more headless mirror selfies!
February’s Stitch Fix is my fourth fix, and certainly not my last. As always, I pay for these Fixes. This post does contain affiliate links and I’ll dedicate my next child to you if you decide to use my referral link to sign up (just kidding, I’m done having babies, but I’d totally be forever grateful.)
I have mixed feelings about this month’s fix. On one hand, I can tell my stylist was really trying to base my picks on items I’ve said I love (ie: the cowlneck tunic from last month). On the other hand, it was really dark and this is the first time the clothes didn’t fit me well.
Here’s what I received in my February 2014 Stitch Fix:
Bellissima Multi Color Square Short Necklace ($55): I loved the necklace, but just not enough to keep it at $55. The pops of color were refreshing to see in an otherwise dark selection of items.
LA MADE Northridge Cowlneck Jersey Top ($68): I just didn’t think this top fit me well at all. I get that it’s supposed to be slouchy (and needs a tank underneath), but it seemed more sloppy than stylishly slouchy. It was very comfortable. The color didn’t work for me, either. I felt very grey/washed out wearing it.
Daniel Rainn Marka Plaid Faux Leather Detail Cotton Top ($38): This top was really cute. The only thing that stopped me from keeping it was the color. We’re nearing spring and I can’t see myself wearing this much past March, even with a pop of color from accessories.
Renee C Andres Draped Detail Knit Dress ($58): This dress was just all kinds of wrong for me. Again, I appreciate my stylist trying to find me more cowlneck styles and an item I could wear at home casually or dress up for an event, but this just missed the mark. It was way too tight all over (except randomly in my armpits) and, again, it was just too dark. I’m not sure a brighter color would have saved this dress. I’m not into dresses that accentuate my runner thighs (they may be muscle, but I don’t like putting them on display) and this hugged every single curve on my body.
41Hawthorn Flora Striped Fit & Flare Skirt ($48): I was unsure about this skirt (again, the color didn’t thrill me) until I put it on. My stylist suggested pairing it with a plain tee, tucked in and a statement necklace, and I love it. I’m not sure I’d wear it with the tank (oddly enough, I don’t own a plain white t-shirt), but I can definitely see how much fun I can have with this skirt. The styling card suggested a black tank with jean jacket for a casual look and I love that idea. This skirt will work now, through spring, and even summer if I play the colors/accessories right. This was the one item I kept from my February fix and I’m really happy with it.
Total for all five items: $267 (minus styling fee and $5 credit and 25% “buy it all” discount $180.25)
So, this wasn’t my favorite fix, but I still found a great item. I would have never picked the skirt out for myself at a store and it will fit easily into my wardrobe with a few, inexpensive pairing pieces. That’s still my main goal with Stitch Fix: to find great key pieces I can build my wardrobe around without breaking the bank. February’s fix met that goal.
Will I be going for fix #5? YUP. It’s already scheduled for March (although I am noticing that dates are booking up faster than before, which is awesome for Stitch Fix because yay business, but it’s harder on the consumer).
I’m going to start I’ve started a Pinterest board for my stylist to give her some ideas. I’m hoping to really start my spring wardrobe with a bang next month!
What do you think of my Fix this month? Would you have kept the same item or something different (or not at all)?
