It’s been half a year since my last Stitch Fix review. I took a break from Stitch Fix mostly, with box here & there, just because I’ve received 40 fixes in the past 2 + years and sometimes you need to change things up.
In the meantime, I received boxes from Evereve’s Trendsend (which I LOVE). For just $1 processing fee, you get a box anytime you want of 2-3 outfits worth of clothing. No pressure to buy or keep and many of the same brands as Stitch Fix offers. The Trendsend boxes gave me my monthly subscription box “fix” without the $20 styling fee.
But then a new year rolled around and Stitch Fix emailed me this lovely:
An WHOLE year of fixes without the styling fee? YES PLEASE! Sign me up! It was time to get back together with Stitch Fix.
For my January Stitch Fix box I requested a budgetary friendly box heavy on the knits. I also mentioned I was crushing on the wine/maroon/burgundy color this winter.
(Btw, if you are new to Stitch Fix skip to the end of this post for a short description of the whats and how-tos & for a link to sign up for your own box of happiness!)
Kate, my usual stylist, did a great job as she always does. Nothing was over $42 and it was all knit (except for the earrings of course!).
Item # 1: Stella & Ruby Johnathon Filigree Earrings
I laughed when I pulled these out of the box. Anyone who knows me well, knows dangly earrings aren’t really my thing. #studsfordays
They are pretty, but very heavy on my ears, and too long for comfort.
I’ll be sending these back without any qualms.
Item # 2: Pink Clover Delino Knit Top
Out of the box, I loved the floral pattern on the sleeves of this top!
The sleeves are just a touch short (I’m afraid a wash will put them to “too short”).
The band at the bottom of the top isn’t my fav. I don’t like top with bands. And the gray material, while SUPER soft (almost fleece-like) is see-through. Yes, I may have been pushing it by wearing my HOT pink bra, but I was too lazy to re-take the pictures when I realized it. 😉
But all that being said, this was Jonathan’s favorite item of the box.
Item # 3: Hip Lafayette Knit Top
I’m a sucker for graphic tees. And this one is extra fun because the lettering is floral! Love that!
I like this tee overall. 3/4 length sleeves are nice, it’s easy to throw on with leggings and tennis shoes, and the price is right.
The color was just a touch too “brick red” as opposed to the color of my shoes in the picture. I am on the fence on this one…I have a couple days to think about it 🙂
Item # 4: American Able Malla Knit Top
This top is the right color! And cheap. And long sleeved!
I like this one! The detailed threads/strings in the front of the top, though, is very similar to an army green one I kept last month.
Because of that, I probably won’t keep this one. Not because I don’t like it but because I don’t need 2 of these. It IS cute though!
Item # 5: Knit Riot Fifi Graphic Knit Top
How cute is this?
I mean. Coffee + Graphic Tee + $28 = WIN
This tee is my favorite of the bunch. If I keep anything, I think this will be it!
How about you guys? Any opinions? What should I keep? What item was your favorite?
