Stitch Fix September Review

My September Stitch Fix came on Friday and this one was a bit better than the last.

Latest Fix

This time I had requested more pants to try and some color.  I don’t think the stylists understand what I mean when I request color because she commented on the fact that these items were colorful.  Aside from the red jeans, I see grey and white, white and blue, and some very muted green and navy.  To me this is very dull and neutral, which is fine sometimes but doesn’t really say “colorful” to me.  Stitch Fix just posted some new items to their pinterest page in Mustard, Teal and Burgundy and I would have been thrilled with a pop of mustard or teal.  Oh well, maybe next time.

Octavia – Betty Chevron Infinity Scarf  $32

Infinity Scarf

I’m just not a huge fan of infinity scarves, and this one was very bulky.  I have items similar to it in my closet already so I’m passing on this one.

Verdict – send back

I don’t understand how these could possibly be considered “straight leg” jeans when they are skin tight.  I’d call these skinny jeans and don’t understand what happened to actual straight leg jeans.  They were somewhat flattering on and actually fit pretty well, but my one complaint is they were lacking a zipper or a fly so they need to be pulled up over your hips and bottom.  I happen to be down a few pounds right now, but I have a feeling if I gain any weight I won’t be able to pull these on anymore.  I kept them because I desperately wanted red jeans and they were somewhat flattering, but I am worried about the lack of zipper.

Verdict – keep

Olive & Oak – Mulliken Raglan Striped Knit Shirt  $48

While I like the style of the top and the colors were fine, I didn’t care for the neckline.  It just sort of looked stretched out and the fabric was rather clingy and unflattering.  For the price I sent it back since I can get a cute baseball tee at Gap for a fraction of the price.

Verdict – sent back

Pomelo – Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 sleeve blouse  $58

I’ve seen this blouse in other people’s fixes and have wanted it for a while so I was happy to see this.  The color is bright and the styling is nice.

Verdict – keep

Pixley – Elissa Striped French Terry Moto Jacket  $74

This just felt sloppy on.  It was a little large and baggy on me and I didn’t care for it opened and wouldn’t want to have to wear it zipped all of the time.

Verdict – sent back

Overall Impressions

Overall I ended up keeping two items from this fix, the red jeans and the blue blouse.  I’m happy the stylist was able to find me red jeans that worked, but still wish they weren’t so tight and wish they had a fly with a zipper.  I had honestly been considering dropping stitch fix for a while, but with the new post about mustard being a trend I’m really hoping I’ll get a mustard colored item in my October fix so I’ll try again.
