Good morning! I’m back to work today (and struggling with it, to be honest), so I thought I’d dive in and share my latest Stitch Fix! This one arrived just before Christmas, and I LOVED this fix. Great pieces, and for once I was actually able to take pictures outside!
One of the things I loved about this box was that I was actually able to make outfits out of the pieces I got! You’ll see more than one in each photo.
Item 1 – Kut From the Kloth Jonathan Corduroy Skinny Pant – $48
I had asked for a pair of fun colored cords, and I loved these when i opened my box. They’re SO comfortable, and I adore the color – dark green is a great color with my hair and skin tone. While they were colled Jonathan on the invoice, they were actually labeled as the “Diana” cut. Either way, I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. They fit perfectly, but are just a little long (you can see I cuffed them in the photo). I’ll be getting them hemmed so I can wear them all winter. I love them that much. Verdict: Kept.
Item 2 – Market and Spruce Benzer Mixed Material Sweater – $78
I’ve seen this sweater around a little bit, and really liked the concept of it. It’s soft, but a very thin material. I did really like the detail of the shirtail that made it longer, but in the end, it just wasn’t worth the price – this is not an almost $80 sweater to me. If it was closer to $40, I might have kept it, but would want a thicker material for the price it was. Verdict: Returned.
Item 3 – Pixley Kaitland Spade Charm Long Necklace – $36
I know a lot of people skip jewelry completely in their fixes, but I actually love getting a piece of jewelry in my fix. That said, Aileen included this in my fix because I loved the necklace she sent in my last fix, and I love everything about this necklace. I love the length, it’s sturdy and well made, and the clover and gold color goes with pretty much everything. I love classic pieces like this, and I can see myself wearing it ALL the time. Verdict: Kept.
Item 4 – Kut from the Kloth Cia Boucle Sleeve Terry Moto Jacket – $98
I was really unsure of receiving a jacket in my fix. Plus, it’s asymmetrical, and I typically don’t like asymettrical things. This fit well, but it’s just not me. I liked the contrast of fabric and the color, but while it looked okay open, I looked weird closed. Plus, at a price point that high, I would have to really love it to keep it, and I just didn’t. Verdict: Returned.
Item 5 – Laila Jayde Bowie Front Seam Detail Dolman Top – $58
I haven’t had good luck with dolman tops in the past, but every time I get one, I try it on anyway. Just as a thought, I didn’t like this one on. The seam down the middle was a little weird, and the dolman sleeves just look bad on me because I’m well-endowed. This top actually prompted me to add a “no dolman sleeves” line in my profile going forward. They just don’t work for me, and likely never will. That said, I did like the color, and the sizing was spot on with this one. Verdict: Returned.
All in all, I was really happy with this fix. I aim to keep one item per fix, so to keep two is great for me. Stitch Fix has really been a great way for me to update my closet a little bit at a time, and definitely takes me out of my comfort zone a little. I’m looking forward to my next box!
