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!

What do you think of what I kept?
I love reading your Stitch Fix reviews–they always make me want to try it! I just worry about sizing!
I agree with everything! I love love love that black top on you with the lace sleeves. And that polka dot top is AMAZING. I might need to request that one in my next fix! Cute stuff!
Love that black lace top! So beautiful on you. And those metallic polka dots are perfect for this time of year!
I really enjoyed your review. I’m on my 3rd fix and I’m really loving it. The things you kept looked great. I was happy to see that you are an XL like I am. I was starting to wonder if I was the only one!
Girl you are way WAY too cute in these photos! Adorable. Love what you kept but especially the long sleeved! I might have to pin that one for myself 🙂
Wow! Everything looked great but I have to agree with your summations. Gonna have to check out stitch fix.
You look beautiful in the pink color even if the shirt was too boxy. I would request it in your fixes.
Thank you! I actually wear pink a lot!
I followed to your blog from a Stitch Fix Review. My body type is much more similar to yours than the pics on their home page, so I wanted to see what you thought. I completely agree with your assessments. I like the 1st jacket, but wouldn’t have paid the price. I loved the black long sleeve, but especially too heavy (I get so warm)! Most of all I loved loved the necklace and the polka dot top. I would have kept the order exactly as you did! Cheers!
Yep, it was just too much money for that jacket and I don’t regret sending it back. I’m actually wearing the black top and necklace today! Thanks for stopping by – I should get my next fix on the 21st so I’d love to see what you think of that when I post it the following week!
