December is well underway & with it, a new Stitch Fix review! I postponed this box a couple weeks because I knew that earlier in the month would be too busy for me to write a review. Plus, it’s kind of fun getting a box of goodies right around Christmas; I mean, it feels like Christmas anytime a Stitch Fix box shows up at my door, but now it actually IS!
(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!)
For my December box, I asked my stylist, Kate, for tops to wear with leggings & boots because basically that’s ALL I wear in the winter months. I also mentioned a pendant necklace & Christmas Eve dress.
As per usual, Kate listened to my note and sent the things I asked for (she’s fantastic like that).
My initial thought was there wasn’t a whole lot of color here – kind of dull colors that matched the season.
But, as always, I was excited to try it all on and see what fit & worked for me!
Item # 1: Bancroft Leighton Metal Bauble Necklace
First impressions of this necklace is that it isn’t something I would EVER pick out for myself. It’s a little too gaudy for my tastes.
After trying it on with a couple outfits I already own and pairing it with the clothes that came in my box, I still didn’t like it – this is going back (I would have preferred a pendant necklace for sure!)
Item # 2: Laila Jayde Cordi Button Cuff Knit Top
Pulling this top out of the box, I liked it! I don’t have anything in my closet this color & it’s totally in season this fall/winter. Plus the length is fantastic, a tunic, which is what I wanted.
And the button cuffs were a cute detail, too.
But after trying it one, the first comment my husband made was that the top is see-through. And it is (bummer). I *know* I can wear a cami under it, but for $58, I don’t want to have to – I wish this top was a bit thicker. I’ll be sending this back, too.
Item # 3: 41Hawthorn Eevie Textured Sweater Dress
So I was a bit bummed to see this dress in my fix. I did want a Christmas Eve dress, but I was hoping to get something more unique & not just a plain, black dress.
The fabric is pretty rough, so it’s not a comfortable dress.
And it’s short-sleeved, which is not weather appropriate for winter. I know, I could add a cardigan, but for $88, I want a dress that is fun, unique, colorful, and warmer. This goes back, too.
Item # 4: Papermoon Belford Raglan Knit top
So Kate said in her note that I could wear this Raglan with leggings or jeans, but this top was WAY too short for leggings (I paired it with them so you can see).
It’s a soft, cute top, and I could wear it with jeans, but it’s a total no-go for leggings.
It’s a little pricey for the simplicity of it ($48), so I think I’ll send this one back, too. If it was longer, I’d be more inclined to keep it.
Item # 5: Hummingbird Bee Hooded Pocket Cardigan
When I pulled this cardigan out of the box, I thought “Holy crap, I’m keeping this for SURE”, which is what I basically think about any cardigan that exists. I love them. I would wear them ALL the time.
It’s so warm. So soft. Nice & long. And it’s hooded!
It’s basically all my favorite things in a cardigan. My only complaint is that it doesn’t hold a shape well; so it looks pretty unflattering unless I’m holding it in place.
I think that I dislike the cut of this cardigan enough, that I’ll send it back…with a few tears…
So: if you are keeping track, my plan is to send all 5 items back. That’s something that rarely happens to me, but this fix was just off for me. Maybe, after 2 years of Stitch Fix, I’m getting too picky? Or maybe Stitch Fix can’t read my mind ALL the time 😉
Whatever the reason, this fix wasn’t my favorite but that’s ok! Hopefully my stylist does better next time 🙂
