If you are thinking that it has been a while since I have done a Stitch Fix review post, you would be right. My last review post was for my June fix. I didn’t stop getting fixes. I’ve still been getting one every month but I stopped reviewing them because I was feeling less than inspired. In all honesty they were duds. I didn’t keep a single item from my last two fixes.
Two months back I asked for another stylist despite being with my orignal stylist since the beginning of my Stitch Fix journey. Sometimes you have to realize when a relationship is no longer working, even a stylist relationship. Getting a new stylist is exciting, almost like being in a new relationship. But like most relationships the excitement fizzled out fast and I asked for another stylist for this month’s fix and guess what happened?! She hit it out of the park! This month’s fix is by far my most favorite one I have had in a long time!
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, accessories and SHOES 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!
Interestingly enough I did not leave a note for my stylist this month. I was too bummed about my previous fixes to put forth the effort. But she still nailed it despite that!
Item #1: RD Style Calandri Contrast Sleeve Poncho
My new stylist Britt definitely paid attention to my Pinterest board! I’ve had this beauty pinned for a while so I was super excited to receive it.
Unfotunately while I do love it, it doesn’t love me. I found it to be overwhelming on my petite frame. I have seen it on others and it looks great, especially those that are taller than me. While I am sad it didn’t work out, I’m happy I can realize what works and what doesn’t on me (at least most of the time).
Cost to Keep: $68.00
Item #2: Rune Glynn Faux Leather Moto Legging
As you can see from Britt’s note, she noticed that I asked for more athleisure and weekend wear options in my past fixes and these leggings are all of that and more! Who doesn’t love a great pair of leggings?! And yes, with regards to that age old debate of are leggings pants….I wholeheartedly agree that yes, yes they ARE.
I probaly could have sized down on these leggings as the waist has a little give to it. I tried to do an exchange through the Stitch Fix wesbite but a smaller size wasn’t available. (Don’t you love that that is an option now btw?!) But I tend to wear my leggings with the waist folded over and by doing that with this pair they fit perfectly.
I love the moto look of the leggings and the faux leather. It’s those details that make a regular pair of leggings stand out. Britt recommended that I pair the leggings with these Superstar Sneakers and the RD Style poncho, which I think would be a great look!
Cost to Keep: $58.00
Item #3: Napean Sea Rd Maryna Split Neck Top
This top seemed like a winner from the moment I took it out of the box as I like the style and the colors.
Unfortunately the fit was off for me. I didn’t find the top to be very flattering on me at all.
Cost to Keep: $58.00
Item #4: Pixley Greenich Striped Knit Top
Britt said I would like the fit of this top which leads me to believe she has seen my feedback from previous fixes that says I would prefer more fitted tops. Stitch Fix seems to have an abundance of flowly tops which aren’t always very flattering on me.
As Britt suspected, I do like the fit of this top! I also like the faux leather detailing on the hem and the elbows. It makes this basic striped shirt not so basic.
Cost to Keep: $48.00
Item #5: Urban Expressions Elisha Zipper Accent Structured Satchel
I am a sucker for a great handbag and this satchel is pretty close to perfection in my book. It’s just the right size to hold my planner and all the other things I carry with me, it is a great fall color and the zipper detailing gives it an edgy look. I will be getting a lot of use out of it!
Cost to Keep: $58.00
I’m sure it is easy to see why this fix was such a hit with me. I feel like Britt really took the time to look over my feedback from previous fixes as well as my past requests. She looked at my Pinterest board and really got to know my style. I will be requesting her as my stylist for next month!

My next Stitch Fix review is actually just a couple of weeks away though! And this time it won’t be my fix, it will be for Chris.
Did you hear that Stitch Fix just launched Stitch Fix Men??!! Chris and I already sat down together and put together his profile. The profile is much different compared the women’s version but men and women are different so I guess that makes sense.
Is there a man in your life that you think would like a fix of his own? Or maybe he needs a fix but doesn’t know it yet. 😉 Click here to use my referral link to sign him up. I am excited to see what everyone gets!
