Hey y’all! It’s that time again…a Stitch Fix reveal post!  This is my 5th fix and if you don’t know what Stitch Fix is all about by now, refer back to my first one to get the scoop.  I’ve been spreading my fixes out a bit more to save money, especially over the holidays…but this one I forgot to skip, so it arrived on my doorstep on December 26th!  Merry Christmas to me!

Since I hadn’t given specific requests this time around, it was up to my stylist to send some things she thought I’d like.

1.  Emer Brocade Print High Waisted Cropped Pant ($98)

IMG_0674

I’m usually a fan of the high waisted look, and these pants fit me well, but I knew even before I put them on that I would be sending them back.  The rayon/nylon fabric combo along with the $98 price tag totally turned me off.  I did like the subtle pattern on these otherwise black pants, however. But ultimately…SENT BACK.

2. Lindy Grid Print Blouse ($48)

This top fits great, can transition from work to casual and is comfortable.  It has that longer-in-the-back thing going on, so it would be great with leggings or can be tucked into a pencil skirt.  Verdict: KEPT.  But let me be clear, I only kept this so I didn’t “lose out” on my $20 styling fee.  I don’t LOVE it and definitely didn’t need it.

3. Florida Floral Print Flutter Sleeve Blouse ($64)

This whole girly flutter sleeve thing doesn’t work for me and this top was just blah.  It fit pretty well, but the blue/tan pattern is boring and the neckline is just a tad too low to be work appropriate.  Verdict: returned!

4. Presley Colorblock Button-Back Sweater ($68)

A lot of people hated this top on my social media (and in real life).  Some people thought it looked like I put a cardigan on backwards, others said it made my boobs look weird, a lot of people hated the mustard color.  I didn’t hate this top, but I definitely didn’t love it either.  I don’t see myself really wearing it, and I know I would never pay $68 for this in a store.  Verdict: returned.

 5. Percie Gathered Waist Puffer Vest ($48)IMG_0904

 

This last piece was one I wanted to really love, but ultimately I hated.  I had pinned a few cute vests on Pinterest and my stylist thought I’d love this one.  Ultimately, the cinching fell in a weird place on my torso, the fabric wasn’t very sturdy and it didn’t feel high quality.  Verdict: RETURN.

Once again, this was a #StitchFixFail (loving this hashtag, btw!).  And with that, I’m taking a little break from Stitch Fix.  I can’t justify the cost right now, between saving for a house and many upcoming weddings to pay for.  Especially when I’m not loving my fixes.  I’m thinking I’ll be ready for another fix when spring rolls around, but for now…Sayanora Stitch Fix!  

What did you think of this fix?  What would you have kept?  Have you had a major #StitchFixFail? Tell me about it.

  1. I liked your options but I don’t think they were worth the price tag! Ouch! A house and wedding/vacations sounds like a better way to spend your money. This is why I’m kind of happy they don’t have Stitch Fix in Canada haha!

    PS Happy New Year!
