Stitch Fix Review – January 2017


My last 2 fixes were flops and I sent everything back two months in a row (yikes!).  So I decided I needed to do a rehab of my style profile and Pinterest board.

I deleted almost all of my old pins, spent an embarrassing amount of hours browsing Pinterest for fresh Stitch Fix pins, and left a note for my stylist to draw as much from my Pinterest board as she could.

And then I waited.  My January box came a bit early, which was a nice surprise!


I hoped that good things came in small packages, but my Stitch Fix bundle was small for the middle of winter.  Then again, when I took pictures today, it was 60 degrees and sunny.  On January 21.  Crazy!


(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 stylist, sent 3 items straight off my Pinterest board!  I was super excited to see the very coveted Olive & Oak Raglan top.  And, spoiler alert, I’m tempted to keep all 5 items.  But I’m getting ahead of myself & I want your input, so let’s check it out!

Item # 1:  Le Lis Woodburn Lace Back Knit Top


Pulling this top out of the box, I immediately liked the jewel tone & lace detail.


Kate said that she sent a size up for extra length, which is great, but I felt like the top made me look a little pregnant since the front was so baggy.


But check out that LACE!


I’m on the fence about this one; what do you all think?  If I keep it, I would go down a size.

Item # 2:  Market & Spruce Wilco Solid Quilted Vest


This vest was from my Pinterest board.  My initial thought was I liked it better in the photo than in person.  It’s a little shiny in person.


It fits really well but is a little out of my style comfort zone.


But it did pair really nice with the raglan top Kate also sent.  And looking at it in the pictures, I like the vest.  This is the other item I’m on the fence about – thoughts??  Should I keep this?

Item # 3:  Olive & Oak Mulliken Raglan Striped Knit Top


Oh my gosh you guys.  I love this top.


Burgundy stripes!?!  Yes, please!  And it’s super soft.


I didn’t pin this version of this raglan top, but I love it!  It’s a keeper!


Item # 4:  Le Lis Adea Faux Suede Button Back Knit Top


This top was a surprise & I thought I wouldn’t be a fan because of the suede.


But as it turns out, I really love the cut & length of this top!  Plus the button back detail is so fun!


This top improves on the basic black (or dark charcoal gray) shirt – I really love it.  I’m fairly sure I’ll keep it, too!

Item # 5:  Octavia Ellis Elephant Print Infinity Scarf


This was another item that I pinned on my board – it’s a little out of my comfort zone, too. Elephant print scarf!


Kate told me to pair it with the Le Lis Suede top & I did.


I think I might keep this scarf, too!  It’s a fun print, it’s infinity (my favorite kind of scarf), and it’s cheap (for Stitch fix!).


My January fix was so much better than my previous 2 fixes have been.  The fact I want to keep 3 out of 5 items right off the bat is unusual for me.  I have until Monday to decide on the Jewel toned lace top & the gray vest – so let me know what you think!
