Stitch Fix Review #7! For anyone wondering, “Stitch what?” 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.

Stitch Fix #7! This one was so good! So, like last week’s Nadine West review, I needed to go a different route with the pictures you’ll see below. Sometimes it’s hard to grab my husband for pics without a kid or a dog trying to escape out the porch door. It’s chaos here. So I’m working the mirror selfie route and, since I go where the light is, you’ll see the view of my unfinished front porch here. I’ll travel around my house a bit and see where the best spot is, but hopefully you’ll still get the idea. Also an unboxing video!

Stitch Fix Review Piece #1: Liverpool Shayla Contrast Collar Rainwear Trench, $88
Initial thoughts: Like I said in the video, I am an aspirational dresser. Like not dressing for the job I want, but dressing for a scenario like: “this coat would be perfect for a guest role on Law & Order! Better snap this up!” Seeing as my last acting gig was a 1998 production of Grease, I think the chance I’ll be called up are slim. But I could so see myself confidently striding into a courtroom wearing this (Small points department: I’m not a lawyer). Aspirational dressing at its finest here people.
The Try-on: Oh wowza. This was the coat I needed, but didn’t know I needed. My husband will think that’s bonkers, but I bet you guys get it :). It’s waterproof, with a hood, so the perfect raincoat. A lot of trench coats are a very thin cotton, but this material was thick and impermeable. Plus this color! I’ve also resisted buying a trench coat because a lot of times they were in a color that was really limiting to only spring. Barbie Hot Pink, I love ya, but I’m looking at you. So this fantastic deep teal is a color unicorn: I can see myself rocking this in either fall or spring! Now this was a Large, which is my typical size, but anything without stretch, I usually need to size up. I could button it in the Large, but I didn’t want to be limited by what cozy sweaters I could wear under it, so I did exchange it for the XL and it was perfect sized up.
Verdict: Exchanged and loving it!
Stitch Fix Review Piece #2: Teeberry & Weave Kasia Large Stripe Pullover, $64
Initial thoughts: I was so excited about this sweater! I don’t look great in a lot of traditional fall colors, but I was feeling this olive with the navy and oatmeal. I knew this was going to be a winner!
The Try-on: So cute! It has a side detailing I show a little more in the unboxing video that’s adorable, plus it just had a super lush feel to the knit. It’s definitely on the higher end on what I would spend on a sweater, but on the other hand, it felt really high end. Fair trade off? I think maybe.
The Verdict: Kept!
Stitch Fix Review Piece #3 Urban Epressions Valerie Convertible Satchel, $68
Initial thoughts: Totally love that plum color! But I was dubious about the potential size of this purse. In the past, my stylist and I have had different views on what constituted “roomy”. When I say roomy I mean like I could carry one of my kids in it if the situation called for it. So now small (or medium for that matter) purses need apply. Now I don’t technically need a new purse, but wardrobe needs are all subjective, as you saw with the coat above.
The Try-on: Really cute, perfect fall color, but I do have a purse I’m into right now from Nordstrom. Unlike coats, where here in Illinois there are approximately 457 coat wearing scenarios, I’m not much of a purse switcher. Too much work as I like to jam pack my purses up. This is exactly one scenario where my shopping Achilles’ heel (concept of what is “enough”) doesn’t really come into play. The plum purse didn’t bump out my current purse for the top purse spot.
The Verdict: Returned!
Stitch Fix Review Piece #4: Market & Spruce Marven Cowl Neck Elbow Patch Knit Top, $58
Initial thoughts: Why do elbow patches always make me think of a cool college professor? I had some cool professors and I never saw a single one in an elbow patch. But I do love any kind of detailing and a casual/cute top is so my jam. Plus I always love a funnel neck.
The Try-on: I’ve got to watch a fitted, thinner knit. Just zero flattering on me. And that was so the case on this one. Plus after the plush fabric of the striped sweater, this just felt extra thin and not worth $58.
The Verdict: Returned!
Stitch Fix Review Piece #5: Liverpool Kennedy Printed Skinny Pant, $88
Initial thoughts: I had asked my stylist for a second go at a printed pant based on a pair I loved from a fix last year. Last month’s printed pants arrived damaged, and I wasn’t willing to chance an exchange paying $88 for a pair of pants that couldn’t hold up in shipping.
The Try-on: This is the same brand as the pair I already own and I love the plaid print. These have a great stretch, good rise and pretty good length. That being said, I did find a plaid pair of pants at Kohl’s that were only like $20, so I kinda scooped myself on that one. But if it hadn’t been for the unexpected and fabulous coat, I probably still would have gone for it.
The Verdict: Returned
That’s it for Stitch Fix #7. Next round I’m asking for some new wear to work pieces. I do feel bad that the piece I specifically requested and she really delivered on and that ended up being one of the ones I didn’t keep. But sorry/not sorry about my new fabulous coat. What pieces are on your fix list? I’d love to hear in the comments!
