Stitch Fix Review October 2020! If you’re not familiar with the service, Stitch Fix is a styling service where you fill out a profile and a stylist chooses five pieces (clothes, shoes, accessories) to send your way for a $20 styling fee. If you keep anything from your fix your $20 fee is applied as a credit and if you keep all five things, you receive a 25% discount on your whole fix. You have three business days to make your choices and anything you don’t like gets popped into a prepaid envelope and dropped into the mail. Basically Stitch Fix is a mail order personal shopper.

This fall fix was my first shoes Stitch Fix! I was starting to get a complex, lol. I was already on the high side of shoe sizing at a 10 and then I had my first son and became a straight up 11. I thought, “I could probably still make some of the 10’s work?!?” Lololol, nope. So when I saw these bright yellow flats I was intrigued. My full review with pictures is below!
Daniel Rainn Lyna Crew Neck Pullover, XL $68
Initial Thoughts: Intrigued! To say I joined the leopard bandwagon would be a supreme understatement, and I’m interested in trying some snakeskin.
The Try-On: My only hesitation on the preview was it looked like that thin sweater material that is oh so soft, but highlights every bump. I debated putting on shapewear, but I really just don’t want to do that anymore. It is what it is. So I don’t want a piece that makes me feel like I need shapewear.
The Verdict: Returned! But I’m open to future snakeskin opportunities.
Market & Spruce Antonie Cotton Blend J-Pocket Cardigan XL $68
Initial Thoughts: Gosh so many people look totally fab in a hip length cardigan, but I am just not one of those people. Hope springs anew every time I try one on like this will be the time!! Spoiler alert, nope! Lol.
The Try-On: Just as I thought — this just isn’t my jam!
Prosperity Lena Super Skinny Released Hem Jean $78, 14
Initial Thoughts: I’ve mentioned in past fixes that this stylist really knows an apple shape. She’s sent me structured waists that don’t mush and she’s usually spot on with the length. I’ve turned to a more denim wearing lifestyle (when it’s time to fancy it up from my sweats collection 🙂 so I was looking forward to these!
The Try-On: They didn’t disappoint! The length was perfection — I pretty much resign myself to wearing an ankle pant year round, whether I wanted them as an ankle pant or not because so many lengths are so short on me. I went back to check if these were longs, but they’re just a standard 14 so I was impressed! I’m 5’9″ and they fit perfectly on the length. They were a little off on the fit — I’ve gained some weight and didn’t update my sizing. Old me would have let them torture me in my closet as something I could almost wear, but then felt uncomfortable in. New me saw a Facebook friend talking about how she ruthlessly went through her closet and got rid of EVERYTHING that didn’t fit or flatter. So now when she looks in her closet, everything she can pick she loves. And new me is exchanging for the 16 so I can be comfortable and happy!
The Verdict: Exchanged!
Mia Aubrie Flyknit Flat, $49, 11
Initial Thoughts: I really was getting a complex about never getting shoes! I’m in love with this color, but flats are not always the comfort dream you would imagine. And we know how crazy I am for Crocs — I was interested to see what these had to offer!
The Try-On: I think it’s the “flyknit” they reference in the product name, but these were so comfy. They were stretchy so they didn’t rub, I love the harvest gold color and the bottoms had enough support.
The Verdict: Kept!
Daniel Rainn Becru Lace Detail Blouse, $68, XL
Initial Thoughts: I feel bad for stylists who ship to Illinois because earlier this month was alllll the weathers. She could have sent shorts and a parka and it would have been on point. But the weather seems to have truly turned so this shirt missed the boat.
The Try-On: This was really cute and comfy on, but it’s a very lightweight poplin so it really doesn’t make sense as a layering piece even.
The Verdict: Returned!
That’s it for my Stitch Fix Review #14! Next time I’m requesting holiday sweaters. Like show me the sequins kind of style! What’s on your style list for late fall 2020? I’d love to hear in the comments!
