Stitch Fix December 2016

Have you tried Stitch Fix?  It’s so fun to go out to the mailbox and find a box full of clothing, especially when it means that I don’t have to take my little people shopping with me.  I wanted a dress for a Christmas party, so I requested a fix, and the results were surprising!  Read on to see the Stitch Fix December review!

If you’re not familiar with Stitch Fix, I will go into all the details of how it works and then share photos of what I got in my fix.  I read a LOT of reviews before I took the plunge and did my first fix, so I hope that this will be helpful if you’ve been considering it!

How Stitch Fix Works

So, in case you aren’t familiar with Stitch Fix, I’ll outline how it works.  If you are, just scroll down to the photos to see what was in my fix!

  • Fill out a style profile – answer questions on sizing, pricing, preferences, colors, etc.  Include notes about likes/dislikes.  Link to your fashion board on Pinterest so your stylist can see what you like.
  • Order your first fix – your card will be charged a $20 styling fee.  If you keep anything you will be credited back the $20.  You will receive 5 items.  Clothing, jewelry, shoes, accessories and handbags, whatever you prefer. I have mine set to no earrings or bags, so you can personalize what types of items they send you.
  • Decide what to keep – you have 3 business days to do so – use this time to try everything on and see what you have in your closet that pairs well with your items.  Check out online and send back whatever you’re not keeping in a postage paid envelope.  If you keep all 5 items you will receive 25% off your entire fix.

Le Lis Maude Textured Knit Dress – $78 – Returned

 Jacket, old (similar) | Clutch, old (similar) | Tights | Booties
This black and white dress fit so well and had such fun texture.  That’s not a printed fabric, it’s an overlay that reminds me of embroidery.  Best part?  The fabric had a ton of stretch, almost like a knit, making it the most comfortable party dress I’ve ever tried on.  The back has a V shape and an exposed zipper, so chic.  Ultimately I ended up going with a different dress for the Christmas party, but this one was definitely a contender.
41 Hawthorne Kassidy Faux Wrap Dress – $64 – Returned
Stitch Fix December 2016
Jacket, old | Boots, old (similar)
This is a sleeveless faux wrap dress, and as soon as I pulled it out of the box I didn’t like it.  Until I tried it on.  This shade of purple is not something I usually wear, but I love it with the dark green jacket.  Wrap dresses are well known for being a flattering fit, and this one is no exception.  It’s also one of those dresses that can dress up or down.  Pair it with pumps, booties, or even sneakers.  And if it had been a little bit shorter, I would have paired it with my taupe over the knee boots.  Such a great dress, but not right for the winter season in Kansas City, so it went back.
Kut from the Kloth Maribel Straight Leg Jean – $88 – Kept

Over the Knee Boots, sold out (similar)
I was so excited to see Kut from the Kloth denim in this fix, I’ve been so happy with them in the past.  These jeans are soft like butter, they just feel so so good on.  I’ll admit, I was a little unsure what shoes to wear with straight leg jeans, but they were so comfortable I will just have to figure it out.  They look great rolled up and paired with converse, but it is COLD outside, so that look will have to wait for spring.  Thankfully, they also work with over the knee boots, and don’t feel bulky at the ankle.
Edyson Mayfare Bootcut Jean – $98 – Returned

Skinny jeans are my go to for sure, but I’m interested in mixing it up with some other cuts.  These bootcut jeans are really nice jeans, but unfortunately were a size too small.  They did have a good amount of stretch, and I really liked the cut.
This color block sweater was a surprise for me.  When I pulled it out of the box, I immediately thought there is no way I will like this.  I don’t usually wear crewnecks, and it felt a little too vintage for me.  But, I LOVE it.  This sweater is so soft and comfortable, it feels like you are wearing a sweatshirt.  It’s always nice to find clothing that feels like lounge clothes and still looks chic and put together.
I enjoyed this fix, and I’m really glad that I’m getting more jeans in my closet that fit well.  I added a couple pairs of pants to my closet last month, you can also check out the November Fix.
