September 2014 Stitch Fix Review

 

I’m a little late posting this one, but this is my review for my September Stitch Fix box. ¬†If you are not sure how Stitch Fix works, click here and read my first review. Jenny L was my stylist again, and did an awesome job… again ūüôā ¬†It was another perfect mix of requested pieces and surprises and everything fit well.

 

On to the fix…

 

 

1. Pixley June Polka dot skirt $58

I’m starting with the only “miss” in the fix. ¬†The fit was great, and the material was a thicker cotton with stretch. ¬†However, the polka dots and navy and white color scheme were screaming spring and summer to me, instead of heading into fall, and overall the look is a little too preppy for me.

 

2. Pomelo Alan French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan $68

 

This was a requested piece, and I wanted to love it.  The material was amazingly soft and comfortable, but unfortunately much thinner than I had anticipated Рso you can see every wrinkle from the overlapping fabric and every line from the jeans I wore with it.  This was a return.

 

3.  Amour Vert Alessandro Abstract Print BUtton Up Blouse $118

Is it or is it not a 3/4 sleeve? ¬†That is the question. ¬†Well, let’s start with the positives – this is a very high quality piece – well made, seriously luxurious fabric (100% good quality silk)- and I believe worth the price tag. ¬†I am usually not huge on prints, but I loved this one and the colors. ¬†However, as you can see by the picture, it is waaay too long. ¬†If you changed the material to a white cotton, it could be a nightgown. ¬†Also, because I’m so petite, the sleeve length was not quite 3/4 and also not quite full length. ¬†Unwillingly, this went back into the bag.

 

4. Kensie Shannon Lace Back Short Sleeve Blouse $68

This was one of my surprises, and Jenny L. really hit the nail on the head with this one. ¬†I loved it. ¬†The lace detail on the sleeve and the back was beautiful. ¬†I tried so hard to convince myself to keep this one, but it just wasn’t flattering. ¬†I don’t necessarily mind a boxy cut, but the darts at the bust hit me below the bust and overall was just a little too big. ¬†The sleeves although beautifully done, hit my arm at an awkward place also. ¬†This is the piece that I tried on at least 4 times, and most reluctantly put back in the bag. ¬†I am feeling a case of “Stitch Fix regret” coming on, I loved the style of this so much, but it just wasn’t flattering, dang it.

 

5. Margeret M Emer High Waisted Cropped Trouser $98

So I received the blue version of these a few fixes ago and although I liked the fit, I wasn’t crazy about the blue color. ¬†I asked to try these again in black, and so glad I received them! ¬†The inseam is perfect, the pants fit perfectly for both work and play – fitted, but not tight – and they are comfortable! ¬†I have already worn these twice since receiving (on a plane and for work) – perfect for traveling!

 

Overall, I am still so happy Jenny L. is my stylist and think she did a great job. ¬†I loved all the pieces she sent except for the polka dot skirt. ¬†This fix was again a perfect mix of requested pieces and some “surprises” that were awesome. ¬†Ugh, there I go again thinking about the black lace shirt….
