Happy Monday! Today I’m interrupting the regularly scheduled programming of food and fitness posts with another fashion one. AKA my latest Stitch Fix came and I wanted to share it with y’all.
If you’re not familiar with Stitch Fix, go back and read my first post about it here.

In case you missed my summer fix, it was awesome and I kept everything, so I was excited to see what my stylist would send for the fall. This time around I asked for some longer tops that I could pair with leggings and boots and maybe a dress that transitions from summer to fall. I’ve been trying to schedule my fixes once a season, so I can add to my wardrobe without blowing my shopping budget. With the cool weather just starting to come around, my fall fix arrived just in time! Fair warning that my photographer for this “fashion show” (boyfriend) was being a little fussy, but we tried as best we could to capture the pieces. Don’t mind the laughing and judgmental faces I’m making! Now let’s dive right into what I received.
Jamie Knit Top-$38
I liked the fit and casual style of this top, but the fabric was super thin and the gold stripes made it look cheap. I didn’t see myself actually wearing it, so although it was comfortable and cute when I put it on, this one was definitely returned.
Adorra Skinny Jean-$88
Meh. I thought these jeans were black as I took them out of the box, which would have been great, but they are just a really dark denim. The fit was a little snug on my waist, but otherwise they were nice and stretchy feeling on my legs. This is not usually the case with skinny jeans and my muscular legs, plus the length was great! I just don’t need another pair of denim skinnies right now and they price point is pretty high for me. Sent back!
Iglesia Pleated Blouse-$48
Out of the box, this top seemed like exactly what I was hoping for! It’s long enough to wear with leggings and the sleeves can be worn full length or rolled up and buttoned. I liked the pattern and the pleating at the chest was flattering, but when I put on my black leggings and boots I realized the colors in the top were actually navy, not black. I only really wear black leggings, so this top wasn’t going to work. Sent back!
Pherine Sleeve Detail Knit Top-$58
The color of this top is perfect for fall, plus it’s a color I usually look good in. That’s where the positives end, though. The material is awful and it was stretchy in some spots but saggy in others, plus that detail on the arms just made it look cheap. I can’t even bring myself to post a picture of me wearing it. SENT BACK IMMEDIATELY.
Whitnee Knit Dress-$64
This dress is exactly what I was envisioning when I asked for a dress that could transition to fall. It was comfortable, but again the fabric was thin (pretty much see through) and I felt like it hugged my stomach and butt a little too tight to be appropriate for work. Not surprisingly, this one went back too.
As you can tell, this wasn’t my favorite fix. Everything went back, which is never fun! In fact, this was the first time I’ve ever sent all 5 pieces back. I did make sure to leave detailed feedback about why I didn’t keep each item (this is key for future fixes) and also reached out to customer service to let them know I was pretty disappointed. I felt like my stylist did do a great job of listening to what I was asking for and personalizing my style recommendations. I love when they take note of what other Stitch Fix items I’ve received and provide tips for pairing old and new pieces together! However, I wasn’t thrilled with the quality of these items, especially given the price points. So, back it all went…but don’t fear! I’m not giving up on Stitch Fix! I truly love the service and want some new fall pieces, so I scheduled another fix for next week. Stay tuned! 🙂
What did you think of my fix? Would you have kept anything? Have you tried Stitch Fix yet–why or why not?!
