Happy Tuesday! I know a lot of people are starting to sign off for the holidays, but I’m not done quite yet – and I’ve got my December Stitch Fix to show you today! If you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix, it’s a clothing subscription box that I’ve grown to love over the past year and half (details are at the bottom of the post). So what did I get in my December fix?
In my note to my stylist, Darla, I asked for a roomy coat and to just surprise me with the rest. As you’ll see in a moment, this was a great fix, and it was really hard to decide on a few things. I’m trying to be more intentional about my closet and what I add to it, so sometimes even if I like something, I end up sending it back. I only want to be keeping things I love!
Market & Spruce Hebel Knit Lined Anorak Jacket – XL – $128
Let’s start with the coat. Darla always does a great job of taking my requests into account for my fixes, so I was happy to see her include this. It actually fits really well, and it really comfortable. It’s lined in a sweatshirt-type material that’s really soft, and the hood is detachable. That said… I was actually looking for something a little more heavy duty than what this is. This is a case of “I like it, but….” it just isn’t something I absolutely LOVE. Now, the price honestly has quite a bit to do with that. At $128, I do think it’s overpriced. This is much more of a fall jacket than winter, and it just wasn’t what I was looking for. If the price point was under $80, I might have kept this. Verdict: Returned.
Romolo Riley Cube Layering Necklace – $28
This necklace is nothing like what I expected it to be, but I actually really like it! I’m really into the long, delicate necklaces lately, and this one is a great length. The cubes give it a bit of sparkle and I know this will look great over so many of my sweaters and tops to give it a little something extra. Verdict: Kept!
Loveappella Nerbi Long Sleeve Lace Keyhole Back Knit Top – XL – $58
This shirt is straight from my Pinterest board and honestly – I love it. I love it to the point that I tried looking up where I can get more of this brand since I’ve only heard amazing things about them. They’re not sold in a lot of stores, so I think I’ll just be requesting a lot of this brand! Anyway, back to the shirt – The body of it is a super soft tee shirt material, and the sleeves are a gorgeous lace. The sleeves are a little long, but for how much I love this shirt, I can deal with that. It’s appropriate for both work and home, and versatile pieces like this are EXACTLY what I look for in my closet. Verdict: Kept!
Brixon Ivy Sylvester Split Neck Blouse – XL – $54
This is another item straight off my Pinterest board. I pinned this originally because of the color – these vibrant pinks and purples are colors I’m always drawn to. I liked it when I put it on. It’s comfortable and the color is good on my skin. But looking at it, it’s definitely a no. Where it flattered other people that I pinned it from, it just made me look bigger and boxier. Not a good luck. Verdict: Returned.
19 Cooper Cathleen Metallic Dot Tulip-Sleeve Blouse – XL – $68
When this showed up in my box, I honestly had forgotten I pinned it! This is one of those things I really went back and forth on. One – it’s super cute and unique. Two – it’s a little shorter than I like for my shirts. The question is, did I like it enough to keep anyway? When I tried it on, I kept a cami on underneath, and honestly? It worked! I can see myself wearing this a lot – the colors are neutral, but versatile and fun, and I love polka dots. In the end, I decided I loved it too much to send back. Verdict: Kept!
I kept 3 out of 5 this fix, which is actually one of the highest amounts I’ve kept in a long time! I was really happy with everything sent, and had the other things had a few tweaks, I might have kept them all. Now to wait for next month’s fix!
