Stitch Fix:: V.4

I received my final Stitch Fix of 2015 on New Year's Eve. I'm a little late posting what my stylist sent for me to try, but here it is!

For those of you who don't know what Stitch Fix is, it's a personal styling service that shops for you and sends 5 items of clothing or accessories to your door, either monthly or on a date of your choosing. Personally, I receive my fixes quarterly. You can read a full review of my first three Stitch Fix deliveries here.

Since my latest fix arrived on New Year's Eve, I didn't have a chance to try everything on for a couple of days. Before I knew it, I had missed the 3-day timeline to return the items. Luckily, Stitch Fix was very understanding and allowed me a couple extra days to return the items I didn't want to keep rather than charging me for all of the items, which I was very grateful for.

Here's a look at the five items my stylist picked out for me:

Moon Collection Bailee Cowl Neck Knit Poncho
  • This was by far my favorite item. Ponchos are definitely one of the most popular trends this winter and up until now, I only had one in my wardrobe. I love the color of this one and had no hesitations keeping it. I've already worn it a couple times!

Skies are Blue Kynley Dress
  • I liked but didn't quite love this dress. The black dress they sent me in my last fix worked a lot better for me. As I mentioned before, I have a black dress that I like and don't really need another one so I returned this one as well.

Marlyn Schiff Linnes Chevron Cuff
  • This bracelet was cute, but huge on my wrist. Since jewelry isn't high on my wish list right now and the fit wasn't right, I returned it.

41Hawthorn Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan/La Classe Couture Meagan Printed Fleece Legging
  • While I really like the color of this cardigan, it wasn't anything special to me. I have several similar cardigans, and didn't really feel the need to add another one to my wardrobe.  I decided to return this item.
  • I have never really been a fan of printed leggings, so I returned these as well. They were a great fit and the inside was so soft, but they were also very see-through. Here's a closer look at the pattern:

Overall, this wasn't my favorite Stitch Fix, but I do love that poncho!

On a completely personal level, I think what I enjoyed most about receiving this fix was that Michael had to help me capture the pictures. He has no idea what Stitch Fix is, but thought it was nice that my stylist "sent me a Christmas present" (insert tears of laughter emoji). He told me that he would be my photographer for 10 minutes and not a second longer, so I was scrambling to change outfits and get all the pictures I wanted in that 10 minute period. He also found it funny to snap "behind the scenes" pictures like this one (ignore the mound of scarves on the bed):

We will see if I can convince him to be my photographer again in the future. :)

  1. This one is definitely not my favorite fix, but it's lucky that that pretty wine colored poncho came out of it. You should send your blog post to your stylist! Also, the Michael bits are hilarious!
