Fix #13 is here! Will it turn out to be an unlucky fix or will it be amazing?! You will have to read on to find out!
In case you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, let me bring you up to speed. Stitch Fix is a monthly subscription service (although you don’t have to get one every month, you pick how often) that sends you clothes and accessories based on a style profile that you fill out. You can keep what you like and send back what you don’t. There is a $20 styling fee but if you keep any of the items, the $20 fee is deducted from the total purchase price of the item(s) you keep. If you keep all 5 of the items from your fix you receive a 25% discount on EVERYTHING. Basically it is like playing dress up as an adult…..and it is both fun and addicting!

Every month you can also leave a note for your stylist. So if you have an event that you need some clothes for or if you just have an idea of what kind of pieces you want to add to your wardrobe you can pass that information along!
I don’t usually have a ton of requests for my stylist Diana but this month was an exception. I asked for this textured skirt that I saw on Stitch Fix’s Pinterest or a different pencil skirt as well as this necklace. I also mentioned that I would love a peplum top. Did she fulfill my requests? Let’s find out!
Item #1: Zad Maureen Beaded Colorblock Necklace
It appears that Diana wasn’t able to get me the necklace that I requested so she sent one that was similar. I like everything about it except the gold. If the gold areas had been silver instead, it would have been a keeper! Sadly I don’t wear a lot of gold, so I know that I wouldn’t wear it often.
Cost to Keep: $28.00
Item #2: Skies are Blue Karla Textured Short
As you may have read in the note that I received from Diana, she was not able to get me the textured skirt that I requested so she sent me these textured shorts instead. Initially I thought that I would really like them until I discovered that the textured detailing did not continue around to the back side of the shorts. That was disappointing. They also seemed a tad too big.
Cost to Keep: $44.00
Item #3: Pixley Hanneli Polka Dot Swing Skirt
This skirt is cute and it fits fine as long as it is at my natural waist. I assume that is how it is supposed to fit?
Unfortunately, it just really isn’t my style and I know I wouldn’t wear it often.
Cost to Keep: $54.00
Item #4: 41Hawthorn 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse
I actually already have this blouse but in a different color and with a print. I doesn’t get much use only because it is a size too big now.
Initially I didn’t think much about this shirt when I paired it with the Pixley skirt as Diana suggested but I liked it when I paired it with a pair of my dress pants as it is a great look for work.
Unfortunately I just couldn’t rationalize spending $58.00 on a basic white top. Especially since I knew that I wouldn’t be getting the 25% off since I already knew I wasn’t keeping all 5 items.
Item #5: Collective Concepts Junson Crew Neck Blouse
Yay! I finally got my first petite item! This is a peplum style blouse just like I requested and I LOVE it! The coloring and print is great. The zipper detail on the back is cute.
I initially styled it with a pair of jeans I received in an earlier fix and while I liked the look, I think Diana was spot on with her recommendation of pairing it with the white skinnies from last month’s fix.
I could also see myself wearing this top with a pencil skirt for work.
This blouse has a lot of versatility and since it is the only item I am keeping from this fix, I figured I could justify its larger than expected price tag.
Cost to Keep: $68.00
So I guess overall fix #13 was a bit of a dud. Although the Junson blouse is so amazingly fabulous I don’t feel too bad about it.
In other Stitch Fix news, did you hear that they are going to start offering shoes??? I found out about it through the Stitch Fix Buy Sell Trade group on Facebook which prompted me to immediately go to my profile to see for myself.
Evidently they are not rolling out the option to everyone quite yet so I feel pretty fortunate that I get to partake in the first roll out. As you can see from my style profile it asks for your shoe size, how much you prefer to pay for shoes and what type of shoes they should avoid sending you. I am crossing my fingers that I will get a pair of shoes in next month’s box!
