Alright, on to the fun. I’ll show you what I received in my box, the note I received from my stylist, and I will also let you know what I ended up keeping and/or returning.

When requesting this box, I noted that I have been into a “feminine with an edge” style lately. I’ve been liking jackets and faux leather details paired with florals. I also let my stylist know of some upcoming trips I had and that I really wanted some more pants to be included in my Fix. Her note, I feel, was very personalized to me and made me feel like she paid great attention to my taste and requests.

The first item in the box was this Violeta 3/4 Sleeve Blouse from Papermoon.  I like that this top can be casual or dressed up, but it didn’t fit me very well. The back was open across the top which I thought for someone a little smaller than me would be very flattering. Had the fit been right, I likely would have kept it. Verdict: RETURN

Next, I received the Glynn Faux Leather Detail Moto Legging by Rune. I strongly believe that leggings ARE pants as long as your tush is covered so I, obviously, loved these pants. What I love most is that these can be worn in the winter or in the spring weather. You can’t see it well here, but there is some seaming across the knee which makes these look more like “pants” and less like “leggings”. Vedict: KEEP

This Rhonda Faux Leather Jacket by RD Style was my favorite item in the box! First, it fit so well. Second, it was reallllly comfy. Finally, it is well made. I love jackets like this because they go with just about everything. Honestly, you could throw this jacket in your car and just grab it when you’re feeling chilly. You would never have to worry about it “not going” with whatever you’re wearing. I love this. Verdict: KEEP

This Free People top was confusing to me. It was a little bit open across the back and had flirtly pleating at the bottom but the sleeves were loose around the wrists which I hated. The pattern was right up my alley and I think it would have looked really cute with the faux leather jacket above, BUT, I have something similar from Free People that fits at the wrists and doesn’t make me look like I’m wearing some Shakespearean play costume. No pirate sleeves for me please! Verdict: RETURN

The last thing I received in my Fix was these Lysse Josylyn Ponte Leggings. Again, I love leggings so I loved that these were sent. While I loved that these were not standard black leggings, I thought that the color was too light to look like anything other than workout pants. They were SO comfy that I wish I could have kept them but it didn’t seem logical to keep an expensive pair of pants to wear only when I work out. Verdict: RETURN

Overall impression: While I only kept two items, I loved this box! I thought she did a great job of listening to what I wanted and sent items that fit my needs, however, I’m particular about clothing and the reasons I sent things back could not have been anticipated by my stylist. Due to a change in my monthly budget, I’ve decided to only receive my Stitch Fix boxes every other month from now on, but I think overall this will be a good thing since I will be more likely to see their newer items and I think my stylists will have an easier time sending things that will excite me. Total cost of this fix: $111. Not bad for a jacket and some super cute leggings.

PS. If you’re afraid you won’t know how to wear the things you receive in your box, they send you a little card with outfit ideas on it for each piece received. I like that they do this because you can pull items from your own closet to try and recreate the looks. I save every single one, even if I didn’t keep the item just so that I have future outfit inspiration!
