It’s the end of the month, which means it’s once again time to share my latest Stitch Fix with you! I’ll spare you the speech about why I love it so much – let’s get to the fun! (Details are at the bottom of the post if you’re new to Stitch Fix!)

For this fix, I asked for something fun for our anniversary. At the last minute, I remembered that I wanted to try some grey jeans, but my fix was already in progress – disaster, right? Not at all. I had heard others pin specific notes to their Pinterest boards after their fixes were in progress with success, so I gave it a whirl, and it worked! Anyway, let’s get to my fix.
Fun2Fun Narie Back Keyhole Blouse – XL – $48
The moment I put this on, I knew it wasn’t going to work. The material has no give to it, and it was way too tight in the arms. It’s a pretty color, but that’s honestly the best thing I can say about it. The front also had some seaming that was beginning to come apart when I tried it on – not a good sign. Verdict: Returned. (I did find some similar options here, here, and here in various colors)
Margaret M Emer Printed Straight Leg Pant – L – $98
I already own two pairs of Emers, so they’re a pant that I definitely love. These ones with the polka dots are SO fun! I really liked the print and thought they’d be fun for work… except I have a skirt that’s nearly identical – same color, just slightly smaller polka dots. While these are fun, I figure I don’t need two of nearly the same thing, so I sent them back. Verdict: Returned. (They’re not polka dot, but I have heard the Old Navy Pixie Pants are similar to Emers!)
Octavia Moni Two-Tone Leopard Print Scarf – $28
I’m going to confess something right here – I don’t own anything leopard print. As in, not even a shoe or a hair clip or anything. I was kind of surprised to see this in my fix since leopard isn’t something I gravitate to, but I give everything a try. This scarf was cute, but just not something I could see myself wearing a lot. Verdict: Returned. (Some cute leopard scarf options here, here, and here!)
Just Black Faye Skinny Jean – 31/12 P – $88 and Loveappella Kallin Contrast Knit Top – $58
These were the grey jeans that Darla found for me. They’re very similar to my other pair of Just Black skinny jeans, but in grey. I really liked them, but they were just a tad too snug on me and I wasn’t sure they’d stretch – I may request them again in the future. Verdict: Returned. (These are very similar, but not exact)
This shirt I really went back and forth about. Number one – this top is incredibly soft. I have one other Loveappella top and it’s one of my favorites because of how comfortable it is. I just wasn’t 100% sold on the pattern of this for a while, and I wanted to be sure. In the end, I just didn’t love it enough to keep it. Verdict: Returned. (Couldn’t find anything similar – this is a unique piece!)
So that’s February’s fix – the very first one where I sent it all back. Lots of great options and I really feel like Darla listened to me, as always, but for one reason or another, nothing really felt like a keeper. Since I”m trying to be really intentional with my choices, It was worth it to me to just send it all back. There’s always next month, and I feel like the service and free shipping makes my $20 styling fee worth it. Now to wait for March!
