Farewell to Stitch Fix

Dear Stitch Fix,

I’ve decided it’s time to part ways.  It’s not me, it’s you.  Why do you ignore my requests and send me items that do not fit any of my style profile requirements?  First it was tanks, tanks, and more tanks.  Sometimes it was weird miss America style tops.  For a while it was drapey cardigans.  It’s been a good run (this was fix #20) but I just can’t do this anymore.  I’ve realized I can do better on my own now, so it’s best if we part ways.

Here’s what I got in my final fix.

Stitch Fix Review November 2014

Colors are not bad, but what is that thing on the right?  We shall soon find out.

Three Dots – Dante Striped Boat Neck Knit Top  $88

This top was the least offensive of the bunch.  Unfortunately it had a curved hem at the bottom that was asymetrical and was shorter in the back.  It wasn’t flattering and the neckline was really wide which I didn’t like.  For $88 I would expect better qualityand something much more unique.

Ellison – Davis Leopard Print Button-Up-Cardigan  $68

stitch fix last 036 Stitch Fix Review November 2014Being super long like this, I figured maybe I could wear it with leggings, but I couldn’t even button up the last few buttons over my hips and it was extremely unflattering.  Definite no for my body.  I could have tried to just wear it open, but the fabric was itchy and not at all comfortable so this was not a keeper.

Laila Jayde – Mallorie Henley Thermal Top  $68

Stitch Fix Review November 2014

Stitch Fix Review November 2014Call me crazy, but if you wanted to wear a thermal top, wouldn’t you want a little more of your top half actually covered??  This was so low cut that if I didn’t have a tank top on it would be showing my bra.  I explicitly stated that I want to be covered up top so why this was a pick for me, I’m not sure.  I’ve never kept a top that had a big gaping neckline.  Also $68 for a thin thermal top you could get at old navy for $10 seemed stupid.  And the one at Old Navy actually covers you!

Level 99 – Patrick Chino Pant  $108

Mind the gap!

Stitch Fix Review November 2014

These do not say “crop” anywhere in the description, but they are about 3-4 inches too short if they were meant to be regular length pants.  They hit at a  very unflattering place about 2 inches above my ankle and make me look like I have fat ankles.  Either way, I have no desire for cropped pants in November.  Plus they gaped in the waist band horribly.  (I mentioned I needed pants with curvy fit for pear shaped people.)

Olive & Oak – Wallace Plaid Open Cardigan  $54

Stitch Fix Review November 2014

 

This looks like it belongs on either Hillary Clinton or a couch.  My husband said “couch” when he saw it.  I don’t what this hideous monstrosity is or why they would have selected it for me, but it doesn’t fit my style in any way.  I wondered what one would pair with such an odd article and apparently they didn’t really know either:

Overall

This fix did not redeem itself and I have decided that I’m better off picking out things on my own from my favorite stores where I will generally like the style and know what fits.  I went ahead and cancelled my Stitch Fix subscription even though I still had a $25 credit.  It just wasn’t worth the hassle of trying everything on then needing to head to the post office to send everything back within 3 days.  It was a nice run and I had 20 fixes in total, but I think something happened where they lost track of what I was interested in and just couldn’t match my style or preferences anymore.  It is with sadness that I bid stitch fix adieu.  😥
