September Stitch Fix!!

Hey guys!!

I am SO excited about this month’s Stitch Fix.  It was my best yet!!

I am sure most of you have seen my previous Stitch Fix posts.  If not, Stitch Fix is a service that sends you five items of clothing per month based on a style profile you fill out.  This is based not only on style, but also on budget — you can choose if you want to go cheaper or pricier.

The service costs $20 a month – - that is the fee for getting styled and having the clothes shipped to you.  Once the clothes arrive, you try them on.  If you decide to keep any, that $20 fee is deducted from the cost.  If you send any back, it’s so easy.  There is a postage paid envelope included, so you don’t even have to make a trip to the post office!!

Overall, I have been happy with my fixes – - rule of thumb is, they get better over time as your stylist gets feedback from previous fixes and gets to know your style a bit better.  But even though I’ve been happy, I’ve definitely felt like they could be better and that the clothing style was sometimes a bit “off”.

It turns out, there are things I can do besides just filling out my profile and leaving feedback that help ensure I get what I really want!!

A few things I changed this month — I created a Stitch Fix Pinterest Board.  This is a board where I pinned clothing I liked and would like to see similar items in my fix.  There is a spot in my profile to link my Pinterest to, and I don’t know WHY creating a separate style board never occurred to me!!

Another thing — make good use of that comment section in your profile!!  I used this section to link to my Noonday Collection website.  I wear Noonday jewelry almost daily, and I need clothes that compliment the style.  I left a comment about that to my stylist as well.

Have an event coming up?  A color you love?  A celebrity you’d love to emulate?

Let your stylist know in those comments!!

I was anxious to see if the changes to my profile made a difference, and I am thrilled to say that it did!!

Here’s what I got this month:

I love maxi skirts, and this striped one is very similar to one I pinned on my Stitch Fix board.  I love it!!  It’s super comfortable and will carry into Fall.

(The tank top is actually an old maternity Gap Body tank top.  Yes, I still wear them)

Necklace:  Noonday collection

This was absolutely not my favorite picture, and the sweater definitively looks better in person!!  It’s a bit oversized and SO SO soft and cozy…I can imagine dressing this up with boots and skinnies, or even throwing it on over black yoga pants to run errands.

Again — this is very similar to a sweater I pinned on my Stitch Fix board!!

Necklace:  Noonday Collection

This embellished top has GORGEOUS detail!!  It has tons of gorgeous beading, and came with a little bag of extra beads in case I lose any.  I love that it is a little loose around the belly area, and could easily pair with a cardigan in the Fall.

Earrings:  Noonday Collection

I LOVE this crocheted top.  Again — it is nearly identical to an item I pinned to my Stitch Fix board!!  It even came with a cami to go underneath (and they weren’t attached — I HATE undershirts that are attached!!)

The jeans were also in my fix  This was the first time I got pants and I loved them.  They fit great and were SO SO comfortable.  Easily one of my favorite pairs of pants I own!!

Necklace:  Noonday Collection

This fix was a bit pricier than some of my others — $255 to keep everything.  For the amount of quality clothing I got, I felt that this was reasonable.  However — in the interest of full disclosure, Stitch Fix does pay for referrals (everyone gets a referral link when they sign on, whether you are a blogger or not) so I don’t end up paying for the whole box myself.  If I did, I’d probably send a few items back, not because I didn’t love them but because $250 is a lot to spend on clothes every month.

If you’re interested in signing up, you can do that here.  It’s really a lot of fun and I am looking forward to my next box!!

    Love the black crocheted tank top!!

    I’m not sure if I just have bad luck with this company, but I signed up at the beginning of August and still haven’t got a fix and won’t until the end of October. They say they don’t have enough clothes there that fits my style. I don’t have any weird, crazy taste in clothing either. Kind of a bummer when you have to wait so long. I’m really hoping it will be worth it when it finally gets here.

    Wow – everything you got is fantastic! I especially love the white embellished top and the black crocheted top. I wasn’t thrilled with my first “fix” but I kept everything in my second box! My stylist truly paid attention to my feedback, which I totally appreciated. Anxiously awaiting my third fix!

    I loved everything in your box this month, especially that gorgeous sweater. I’ve been looking for something just like that. Unfortunately, StitchFix isn’t in Canada yet. I was curious about the maxi skirt. I’m a small gal myself (4’11″) and have never found a maxi that looked good on me. Did you have to hem yours? It looks great! Any tips for small gals and maxi skirts/dresses?

    Can you please tell me the brand and name of the sweater? I love it so much and will request it in my next stitch fix. Also what is the price of it?
